In moderation, botanicals are always in style.
They’re fresh, natural, and soften the masculine edge found in most modern spaces.
Symbolically, they represent growth and vitality; and energetically, they have a positive, peaceful, and light-filled vibe.
Whether you’re a modern mystic and feel a deep connection with mama nature or you simply admire her beauty, botanical decor will have a positive effect on your energy and the energy of your space.
STYLING BOTANICAL DECOR
Botanicals are so versatile you can’t go wrong.
Boho, French provincial, classic, and modern spaces all benefit from natural botanical prints and pieces.
And if you want to keep it subtle and have a neutral pallet, it’s simple to incorporate a few accent pieces from the curated list below.
To source the most beautiful and modern botanical decor ideas, I combed through thousands (yep, thousands) of Etsy items and I’m so excited to unveil these rare finds.
Here are 12 botanical decor ideas inspired by gorgeous handmade items to heighten the style and vibe of your space.
BOTANICAL DECOR IDEAS
If you’re interested in learning more about the items featured, I’ve provided the Etsy shop name and link below each image.
For a subtle, nature-inspired vibe, add some natural materials and botanical textures to your space like this porcelain ceramic dish. The leaf design is hand-rolled into the clay, making each dish unique.
It makes a beautiful summer side plate, candle holder, and jewelry holder.
And love this gorgeous colour!
Doubling as a lamp and paper sculpture, this embossed paper floor lamp is a stunning work of art. The curved leaf design gives a sense of movement and flow while also retaining a structured, modern presence.
And what a beautiful glow.
Dried eucalyptus in a stark white vase is a beautiful, modern accent but if you want to take it to a whole other level, hang this eucalyptus artwork on a light-coloured wall.
This wall hanging is a perfect balance of structure and flow. I love how the eucalyptus cascades down the wall like a waterfall of greenery. It would look lovely above a sofa or bed.
Want to feel like your living room has its own little wildflower meadow?
This botanical artwork, or “flowerbar” as the artist calls it, can be placed on a table or hung on a wall and is a perfect way to add a touch of colour to a space.
Botanical Wall Art
Charming, yet modern; boho, yet classic. This lovely giclée art print is so versatile and handpainted by the artist.
I get a whimsical, vintage vibe from it. A little herbalist, a little green witch, a lot of natural magic.
If you’re looking for a fresh, nature-inspired gallery wall, pastel green botanicals provide a beautiful, soft touch.
These photographs would look so pretty over a sofa or bed.
Pressed Flower Art & Accents
Pressed flowers are so lovely and considering the current botanical boho trends, are due to make a huge comeback.
These real, pressed lilac flowers appear to be floating on the wall. Beautiful, minimalist, and etheric.
They’ll add an uplifting, natural element to any room.
Can a candle get more beautiful than this? Likely impossible.
Made with pressed flowers and 100% soy wax, this pillar candle is a gorgeous way to add some botanical decor to your space.
Charming, but also modern in its simplicity, this forget-me-not coaster makes a beautiful pressed flower accent.
Since the flower symbolizes remembrance, it could also be a tribute to lost a loved one.
Botanical prints add a natural and feminine softness to a bedroom or living room.
These linen floral pillow covers are beautifully handmade and have a vintage vibe. Love!
Upgrading your cupboards and furniture with artistic, handpainted knobs makes a noticeable difference.
And these botanical knobs add a perfect touch of natural glam to a room.
This list would be incomplete without including living plants.
Studies have shown plants can reduce stress and hanging planters are an ideal way to bring a corner or small space to life without disrupting the flow of a room.
I love the simple beauty of this ceramic hanging planter with its pastel base and textured top.
Aren’t these Etsy finds lovely? I’ll be sure to update the list if I stumble across any other standout modern botanical decor ideas.
