Étienne Léopold Trouvelot’s Aurora Borealis

The glittery rays of light shining from the sky in this incredible depiction of Aurora Borealis would make for a welcome splash of color in any room. We would love to see this illustration displayed boldly on a large poster print. Its natural matting makes it an elegant can’t-miss piece.

The beauty of natural matting is present yet again in this stunning blue-toned free printable. We adore the subtle yet entrancing textures and colors in this magical illustration. We would love to see it hanging in a warm yet colorful bedroom, like above!

We were totally enamored by this dark yet vibrant illustration. The composition of the image drew us in, while adding color and depth to the space around it. When we see a blend of mystery, darkness, curiosity, and excitement – all in one image – we know it’s print worthy.

What’s not to love about this green-hued masterpiece? While beautiful at first glance, the illustration only gets better when you look even closer… and notice two adorable seals in the left foreground!

Anna Boberg’s Northern Lights, Study from northern Norway

We haven’t seen the northern lights in person – yet! – but we like to imagine they’re as magical as this picture feels. With its vibrant, luminescent color scheme, it’s the perfect illustration for livening up a personal space.

Harald Moltke proved his knack for sensational northern lights illustrations yet again in this deep blue piece of art. This printable would blend aesthetically with bohemian or Scandinavian décor.
