The Cottagecore Aesthetic & Botanical Art
Have you fallen in love with the cottagecore aesthetic? Cottagecore is a movement to return to a simpler, rural life. I’ve always loved country life. From spending time with my grandparents on their farm, I learned it is possible to heal myself with the plants and flowers around me.
DIY botanical art will completely transform your living space into a cottagecore dream. Botanical vintage art celebrates the beauty of fresh herbs and flowers with rustic charm.
I’ve always loved rummaging around antique stores and could gaze for hours at Renaissance paintings. There is something about cottagecore aesthetic botanical art that instantly transports you into a simpler, more peaceful time. You can easily print and frame botanical vintage art yourself and turn any room into a tranquil oasis.
Where did these vintage botanical art prints come from?
I spent countless hours poring through prints until I found these. These botanical prints came from the USDA national agricultural library special collections section. Most are from the British Flora Medica Barton, Benjamin Herbert and Thomas Castle collection of 1837. They were made before copyrights, and I edited each one slightly by changing the size or color filter.
