4 Ways to Bring Botanicals into Your Home – Without the Need to Water

Are you like me? Obsessed with botanicals, but without a green finger to your name? Don’t worry. There’s no end of ways to create a big impact from botanicals in your home. Without ever needing a watering can! Seriously, even though I’m beginning to make progress with houseplants (mainly with the help of my new moisture detector gadget), I still love the statement you can create with the bespoke wall coverings, wall art and window treatments available from Surface View.

The Oversized Wall Canvas

Xanthosoma Maximiliani Canvas by Johann Peyritsch from the New York Botanical Garden Collection at Surface View.

You can order a wall canvas in any size you like from £90, but there’s no doubt that an oversized version is absolutely stunning. And as you can see, the quality of the original art is not compromised at all. This is my favourite. It will never wilt, never die. And heaven forbid, it won’t ever get too big for it’s boots.

The Printed Blind

Sunflower Blind from The British Library Collection at Surface View.

What could be nicer on a window without a view? This ginormous sunflower would mean sunshine even on a rainy day. Prices start at £190.

The Framed Prints

Spathicarpa Gardneri and Spathicarpa Hastifolia Framed Prints by Johann Peyritsch from the New York Botanical Garden Collection at Surface View.

I’m getting rather fond of these vintage style horticultural and botanical prints. These two look rather handsome framed in black and styled with lot’s of nature inspired things. Maybe I’ll start a collection. Each print even retains the quality, quirks and age-worn beauty of the original painting, etching, print, sketch or drawing. Prices from £50.

The Wallpaper Mural

Timonius Timon Mural by James Miller from the Natural History Museum Collection at Surface View.

There were too many beautiful examples of botanically inspired wallpaper murals to only show one. The one above looks rather contemporary on this grand scale. In fact, it’s a watercolour, by James Miller, from an original outline drawing by Sydney Parkinson made during Cook’s first voyage, 1768-1771.

Winter Garden Antoine Mural by Ludwig Czerny from the Royal Horticultural Society Collection at Surface View.

But if your tastes are more traditional, how about this lovely winter garden mural. You can dream your green fingers extend to your outside space too.

Gilded Paper Wallpaper Mural by Richard Hamilton Smith GS from the Trunk Archive at Surface View.

Or if you would like a wallpaper mural that works on a smaller scale these gilded ‘birch trees in fall’ are rather lovely. All wallpaper murals start from around £40.
