Personally it's a never ending love for me. I love the foliage, warned out prints, flowers, shades of greens. When you do not have live green plants in the house, this is another way you could still be in touch with greens and add a fresh aesthetic to your space.

Enhancing the wall not just with artworks, but also by adding actual plants or succulents on a shelf will add more character to the wall.Frames that work best are weathered or distressed wood, traditional layered wood frames. To add a modern touch one can have a slim gold frame to the prints.
