Friday Finds: Beautiful Botanicals and Fabulous Ferns

Even as the cold weather begins to hit, there’s nothing more beautiful than interior décor that is stylish and chic, and even brings a hint of lush nature indoors. We’re not talking plants that you have to care for every day, but stunning wallpapers that bring the outdoors inside.


Nature has been a strong influence and source of inspiration for decor this past year. The beautiful botanicals, fabulous ferns, and pretty palm leaves have seen a resurgence in popularity. The iconic palm leaf style actually originated from Martinique Banana Leaf wallpaper, which was created by decorator Don Loper in 1942 for the Beverly Hills Hotel.

The bold wallpaper has since been transformed to more classic looking styles that can be used for any room and not just upscale Beverly Hills hotels.

In fact, York, Scion, and Thibaut all have botanical wallpapers that range from fun, kitschy patterns to beautiful, natural ferns. They can be textured or more simple, but these botanical wallpapers are a design that has sustained the test of time.

This beautiful “All Over Coral” pattern from York Wallcovering (below) looks like ferns. The bathroom is chic and bold by simply incorporating a wallpaper that might classify more as wall art.
