The modern botanical trend: it’s a growing obsession. Plants have become a much loved feature in our lives and homes, be they in pots or picture frames, real or artificial. Nature was at the forefront of Pantone's 2017 colour of the year, Greenery, and has been flourishing in the design and interior world ever since. Versatile by nature, the trend can be incorporated into a range of styles and contexts – from full-on plant paradise to more minimal, abstract elements. Whatever your take on it, this thriving aesthetic is set to be evergreen! 
Inspired by this fondness for all things green and leafy, we asked you to create bold, contemporary botanical artwork for our recent Botanical Flash Creative Invite. Peep some of our favourite submissions below, as we dig deeper into the design trend!
