("Ascidiae", from Ernst Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur "Art Forms of Nature," 1904)I have a two-year-old who is obsessed—seriously, she can't get enough of them—with insects, botanicals, and any imagery related to the natural world. And so I figure that while the going is good and she doesn't insist on wall-to-wall Dora or Disney princesses just yet, I'll swap out the current non-decor in the nursery for my ownlatest obsession: framed works from the Nature series by Print Collection.
("Siphonophorae", from Ernst Haeckel's Kunstformen der Natur "Art Forms of Nature," 1904)Too sophisticated for a two-year-old's bedroom, you say? Yes, you're probably right. But what could be more imagination-spurring than these abstract colors and fantastical forms? They're enough to evoke a childlike sense of wonder in even the most jaded adult.

And these were just a few of my favorites from Print Collection's Nature series—I'm also loving the Architecture images and the American West series, which remind me a bit of Sunset magazine's iconic covers. Here's hoping my new nursery decor spurs a little science genius in our midst.
