Love nature, art, and vintage beauty? The Garden House as got your back. A stationery brand, it specialises in creating beautiful botanical illustrations, and if you love flowers as much as this writer does, you’re in for a treat. Working with water colours, Valli, the woman behind the brand can create any natural masterpiece for you on paper stationery like gift tags, notebook covers, gift bags, wraps, envelopes and cards if you’re keeping it old school. Speaking of which, they have a lovely vintage collection (where the illustration style is reminiscent of classic scientific botanical illustrations) that’s screenprinted onto handmade brown paper bags. We hear that it’s done on a still functional 100 year old Press in old Bangalore.
The prints range from birds on vines, flowers of all kinds, scenes from Valli’s garden, mushrooms, ferns and pretty much everything in between. As for the styles, while the scientific botanical style is the speciality, there are great hand painted watercolour prints, pen and ink monochrome stippling (where the illustration is made with millions of dots), and we spotted some custom block prints as well. From jasmine, hibiscus, germaniums, passion flowers it’s all so pretty! We also spotted orchids, bugs, and mushrooms if you’re looking for something slightly different. Contact her on Instagram to buy something available, or place an order for something customised if you have a gifting, bulk, or corporate order.
