Do you find yourself proclaiming ‘OMG I wanna live here!’ when you walk into a botanical garden filled to the brim with all sorts of colorful plants? Yeah, we do too!
On a recent adventure exploring one of our all-time fave plant-filled destinations, the Huntington Botanical Gardens in San Marino, CA, we felt overwhelmed with all the incredible design inspiration the gardens have to offer. From the oddly-shaped cacti prompting us to dream up new patterns and prints, to the vibrant array of soothing hues & saturated statement colors – it’s safe to say we are all about it. We really dig bringing home fresh, new ideas sparked during our local trips & travels.
So, we’re likely all familiar with a plant-based lifestyle, but how about switchin’ it up with a design-driven approach… one that makes us feel like we’re living in a wild, botanical garden?! Take a peek at how we’re cultivating a plant-based color palette in our homes through paint, décor, and of course all the plants! To do this, we took a super close look at some of the moments Justina Blakeney captured through her photography.
We’re getting some far out 70s vibes from this group of colors. The warm golden hues play off of the greens with a rich shade of beige pulling it all together.
This multi-hued cactus is such a stunner, we still can’t believe it’s a real thing! Wouldn’t these soft pastels be sweet in a lil’ kiddo’s room? The minty greens feel fresh & fun paired with mellow shades of orchid.
This image has similar hues to the previous one, but feels a bit more sophisticated. We’re feelin’ the deep blues and greens against the paler shades for added contrast. The deeper tones would sure look stellar on a refurbished antique piece.
This one right here is giving us life! The movement, shapes and vibrant colors in this whimsical plant are seriously on another level. We pulled out the warmer terra-cotta, rust and clay tones of the image – which happen to some of our fave hues at the moment!
This range of cool blue-gray shades with the warmer orange and subtle pop of soft green is the whole package. The deep blue acts as a neutral, allowing the other shades to pop beautifully against it. We picture this as a killer color palette for a modern office space – refreshing, crisp and easy on the eyes.
We love showcasing all of the greenery-inspired colors that immediately take us back to the fascinating feel of the gardens. We hope it evokes the same magical, botanical vibes for y’all, too!
