Vintage DIY: Botanical Bonanza

Street Scene Botanicals Spring 2012
It's hard not to get excited for spring with the beautiful weather today.  Many of you will fondly remember our beautiful botanical room we set up for Spring last year.  This was one of our all-time favorite spaces, and this trend is still very popular for the upcoming spring season as well.  I am loving simple all-white spaces mixed with rustic botanical prints, pale olive and green shades, and distressed woods.  Botanicals this season are about more subdued, deeper colors that create a more grown-up and traditional feel.  Mix your multi-colored botanicals with more simple, neutral, and  rustic pieces.  Check out the inspirations below to help you get a jump start on your spring decor.

The wooden farm table looks amazing with a collection of antique botanicals in old frames on a simple white wall.

We love Terrariums! These look amazing on a bed of rocks in front of some distressed white frames and a beat-up white wood plank wall.

The PERFECT botanical pants! So many great outfit possibilities for these!

The perfect collection of botanical prints- even little postcards and pages of books look great pinned up on the wall!
