Trends: Leafy Greens

Whether in high contrast photography, watercolor or flattened graphic illustration, the botanical prints I’ve been seeing around lately are exciting. It’s a welcoming way to bring some of that SoCal sunshine aesthetic into homes all across the nation, don’t ya think?

A few weekend posts ago, I hollered at Sarah M Dorsey Designs for her DIY leafy greens print.
Will you give it a shot yourself? I snapped one or two of my fiddle leaf fig, and shared via Instagram.

The Aestate, a favorite in the design blog community, peddle their leafy wares on Society6.
As a result we can reap the advantages of the extended product offering there, like this wall tapestry!
(They also offer leggings, which I’m thinking about testing out.)

I’m enjoying the Peter Dunham Fig Leaf pattern more at this moment than I was when it first started popping up on everything. A design classic choice for sure, and in my opinion – used sparingly and well mixed, is an alright idea. Frankly, I couldn’t leave it out of this round up, you know?

 House of Hackney InfernoRecently, someone told me that this practice of covering walls, shades, curtains and soft upholstery in thematic matching patterns, a ubiquitous practice in the 60s, might be making its comeback. That was hard to imagine until I saw it done by the masterful stylists of the House of Hackney.

What did I miss? Share yours with me!

OOH, UPDATE:

I was just cruising the ever-inspiring Justina’s Instagram and she’s created a fun new hashtag. In the spirit of yesterday’s post, let’s explore #plantsonpink.
