I have lived in my home for more than 4 years and very few walls actually have artwork. I have an entire floor in my house without one darn thing hung. I apparently have commitment issues!
So what better to blend my love for plants and my need for wall art – BOTANY PRINTS! I have recently fallen in love with the new trend in botanical prints. Since I have an unhealthy obsession with ferns at the moment, I decided I wanted a gallery wall full of vintage fern prints. However, I found it really difficult to find some that fit my personal style.
I’ll let you in on a little secret. There are tons of free resources out there that offer free botanicals. You just have to be willing to do some searching. I went to BioDiversityLibrary to find these prints. It’s a free resource to look up and search through historical books, manuscripts and prints. Personally, I needed to find something that truly represented my vision, and it took me some time to really find these little gems. They were from a European Fern document published in London in 1879-1881. How’s that for vintage?
