This botanical art makes me so happy…but happy that it’s a Monday? Well maybe not THAT happy!

Aren’t the colors in it stunning?  They complement the paint color (Benjamin Moore’s California Breeze) so nicely.

This botanical painting, created by Sarah Graham, was in the living room of this year’s Kips Bay Showhouse.  House Beautiful featured the Bunny Williams’ designed room in their August issue and also spotlighted the bold canvas painting.

I did a little research (isn’t that what blogging always leads to) and found out more about Sarah.  She is a British artist who is represented in London by Sims Reed Gallery.

The coordinating pair of paintings were made specifically for the space and can be bought at Bunny Williams’ shop, Treillage for $10,700 each (price includes the frames).

Her graphic drawings are equally as beautiful as her paintings.  Done on handmade paper, these drawings are incredibly sophisticated and so timeless.

If I was Sarah, I’d probably be doing commissions all day just for myself!  How could you resist- these would make such a great series!

These pieces are so much more modern than what I typically think botanical as being. I really love the first piece – the colors are really great.

What a fun and colorful room. Great botanical print – I love that it’s oversized.

Cheers,
