Welcome to The View, an interior design blog full of inspiring ideas for your home.
The New York Botanical Garden is an iconic living museum and since its founding in 1891, has served as an oasis in a busy metropolis. Located in the Bronx, New York City, the 250-acre site's lush landscape supports over one million living plants in its extensive collections.
'Narcissus Maximus' Mural from £60 per sq/m
This unique collaboration brings to life a carefully curated selection of exquisite botanical, architectural and horticultural works of art from the rare book collections of the Garden’s Mertz Library.
Each hand picked piece from the New York Botanical Garden tells a story. Meredith Counts, Director of Licensing and Product Development at NYBG comments;
“We’re thrilled to partner with Surface View on this very special project. A reverence for beauty, quality and history are inherent in Surface View’s product range; this captivating collaboration is a welcome venue for sharing NYBG’s rare archival holdings with consumers. Each piece in the collection—from intricate wall murals to whimsical lampshades—is threaded in a rich heritage that’s been preserved for centuries.”
'Dreer's Bulbs' Muralfrom £60 per sq/m
Bursting with beautiful and vibrant floral imagery taken from hand drawn studies and aged seed packets, this collection allows access to artwork rarely seen by the public.
Transformed into breath taking interior decoration, these beautiful blooms make for fantastic murals, canvases, prints and much more.
The collection mixes black and white etchings, photographs from the Garden and beautiful book covers with stunning floral studies and a handful of gorgeous birds and bug illustrations.
'Dreer's Large Flowering' Mural from £60 per sq/m
We love ‘Dreer's Large Flowering’ mural taken from Dreer's Garden Book, Seventy-fourth Annual Edition. The cluster of striking blossoms blend soft and subtle tones together to form a fabulous feature wall which is both a statement yet completely liveable. Created in 1912, the vibrant colours continue to fascinate over 100 years later!
What do you think? Are you as much of a fan of florals as we are? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
