Birds and Botanical Art at Home

Birds and Botanical Art at Home

One of my favorite decor themes of all time is that of birds and botanical art. Whether you are lucky enough to find antique botanical drawings, have an antique bird painting collection up your sleeve, or are just interested in playing with the romantic naturalist themes, we've rounded up some of our favorite inspirations in exciting formats:

1. This Powder Room reveal from JeweledInteriors featuring the gorgeous Paradis Wallpaper from Fine & Dandy.

 4. Maude Smith decided to hand paint each tile in her bathroom, rather than retile the whole thing. Her eye and hand created one of the most special details I've seen in a long time! Found via messynessy.

We love the mix of giant preserved botany, and the paintings of birds in a small scale gallery. Photographed by Miguel Flores-Vianna for his book 'Haute Bohemians.'

As a bird & botanical lover, I am always seeking to buy paintings and art in this genre. The birds in oil painting format always give me joy, and our clients seem to love them, too. My mothers' parents were both avid birdwatchers, which I've picked up in France, and especially enjoy when we're visiting Paul's parents' village in Normandy. It feels like time and space and geographies colliding to connect our two families through something so simple and wonderful. H
Here are two of the lovely bird antique oil paintings we've had in the past year. Both were snatched up by art collectors - and I love to imagine them making their "migration" to being admired in new homes and lands. 
Deux Hirondelles; 19th century French School oil on wood.

Old World Sparrow; 19th century French School, signed Jean Caron.
