Design Inspiration: Fall Prints
One of our favorite ways to incorporate a touch of Biltmore into your home is the addition of a design element that harmonizes with your personal style. You can achieve this through the use of furniture, accessories, and building materials that designers have created based on their interpretation of the estate.
We love choosing prints drawn from George Vanderbilt’s extensive collection of antique books. Consider the simple, beautiful details of a charming print such as “Harvest Song” from Meisterwerke of German Art, Vol. I by Carl Thonet Jutsum, published 1883/1884.
Another lovely option is “Garland, Cornucopia” from Fables by Fontaine, which was published in 1755. Though more than 250 years old, the print retains a classic botanical look and feel that adds interest to any setting. Like “Harvest Song,” this print has been faithfully reproduced in warm vintage tones suitable for any décor.
The prints in our collection are taken directly from books within the library in Biltmore House, enabling you to experience the same history and art that the Vanderbilts and their guests enjoyed.
