|Stunning, right?! Liz Williams Design.|
And that was it! I decided a grouping of antique botanicals would be perfect for above the couch in the family room. It's a fairly large wall, so a group of 6 or 8 would be just the thing. I think they look a little fresher than an antique oil painting, but they still give that antique touch that I love. They are classic, versatile, timeless.

So I know what I want, now I just have to find them! Easier said than done. The French antiques that designers like Loi Thai and Lisa Luby Ryan have used are hundreds of dollars each, and since I need 6 to 8, that could be prohibitively expensive. So I'm hunting on Ebay and Etsy like crazy. Meanwhile, I have found that some of the catalogs have sets of them, and though not vintage, they give a pretty great look.
Happy Friday everyone!
