Botanical Style | Selina Lake
In her latest book, 'Botanical Style', popular stylist and bestselling author Selina Lake brings her signature romantic vintage style to the current trend for all things botanical.
The first chapter, Botanical Inspirations, takes a look at the ingredients of the look - antique botanical prints and artworks, flower stalls, potting sheds and houseplants - and draws upon these sources for fresh ideas to transform your home into a leafy haven.
Moving on, Selina explores five different facets of the botanical look. Vintage Botanicals celebrates the gentle palette and delicate style of floral watercolours and pressed flowers, while Boho Botanicals has more of a free-spirited 1970s vibe, with jungly potted plants, flower garlands and even a decorated teepee. The varied textures and contemporary appeal of Industrial Botanicals give it a modern edge, utilizing materials such as polished concrete, rusted metal and laboratory glass and combining them with peeling paint and vintage school science posters on the walls. Next, Natural Botanicals is based around antique prints and salvaged museum specimen cases for a nostalgic feel, while Tropical Botanicals features bold leafy prints, spiny cacti and palm trees for a distinctly glamorous retro flavour.
