This trend just in: butterfly designs are all around us!
From our gardens to Nature Centers, they have invaded our homes in the form of dishes, fabrics, and other accessories. What a beautiful way to make spring linger longer and have summer stay…
I for one could not resist and added two silk embroidered butterfly pillows to my dining room banquette.
Christian Lacroix, the former designer for Dior, directed his talent to creating whimsical designs for the home and showered plates and fabrics with butterflies.
I marveled at the beautiful butterfly kissing my hydrangea trees and vowed to visit the garden center and pick some more butterfly loving plants.
Botanical gardens all over the country are celebrating butterflies by showering visitors with them at their greenhouses. The beauty and lightness of butterflies bring grace and color into our homes.
During the colder months when grey is all around us, a splash of color can do wonders to uplift our moods. Think of the whimsical patterns of the butterfly fabrics in a throw pillow, a chair or cool art work on the wall.
