“If I was a flower growing wild and free, all I’d want is you to be my sweet honeybee”
– Barry Louis Polisar

Spring has sprung!

Whether you clean your home frequently or tend to do a full-on, deep cleanse just once a year, springtime lends itself to a sense of renewal. As wildflowers emerge, mushrooms peak through damp earth, and the sun’s rays energize all of life (for those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, that is). The longer, lighter, brighter days may inspire a revamp, both of your physical space and mental space. “Outer order, inner calm” is a powerful mindset, as happiness researcher Gretchen Rubin says:

“When we get more control over the stuff in our lives, we feel more in control of our lives generally.”

So, depending on the weather in your part of the world, spring can be a good time to open up your windows, go through your closet, put those garden starts in the ground, move furniture around, and change up home decor. You may even find a welcome mood boost as you freshen up your space. Wall art, whether a solo statement piece or a curated collection of art prints hung mindfully, can really bring a home to life. And what better way to welcome spring than flower art!

Colorful, floral art prints can liven up just about any space.

Want a dash of color in an otherwise neutral room? Frame and hang a grand Georgia O’Keeffe poppy.

Want a sense of sweetness and whimsy in the kitchen nook? A still-life of a basket of pansies will do.

Want a simple print that inspires calm in your workspace? Put up a print of your favorite flower above your desk.

Want your houseguests to feel welcome and delighted? Frame and hang Renoir’s Vase of Roses in the bathroom (bonus points for potpourri or bath salts with rose petals, too!)

Colleen Mote, of Mote Studio, which specializes in interior styling, says,

Floral art can be used anywhere in your home, but to create a cohesive space, put floral art that has similar colors in other parts of the space. For example, if you have floral art with lots of whites and pinks, see if you can put it near a pillow that has some whites and pinks as well.

Ultimately, you get to decide where an art piece featuring flowers might look good in your space. Notice which flowers inspire your heart to bloom and follow that blossoming of intuition. Whether you are looking for museum art for your home or a spring-y print to gift to a friend, we’ve put together a guide to get you started.
