Trying to find an interior object that will last the test of time can be hard. It has to be of a high quality, elegant, but also have a sense of personality and fun for you to be drawn to it. Take your style cues from the graceful butterfly and you’ll create a serene interior statement that’s sure to leave a lasting impression. Thanks to its enduring beauty and its reputation as a symbol of freedom and hope, the butterfly has long been a popular motif in fashion and interiors.
This season, butterfly-inspired patterns are making their way onto everything from tableware to pendant lights. The secret to making the right investment is choosing a piece that will work with what you already own. Jewel-toned patterns of purple, blue and green are in keeping with a modern colour palette. When it comes to bigger ticket items, such as a cabinet, look for designs with a dark colour base to ensure it doesn’t look prissy. Butterfly wallpaper is also best kept to a feature wall. Perhaps start with a framed print before committing to the full butterfly effect.
