2017 is certainly shaping up to be a year of nature-inspired home decor. With Pantone's Greenery influence, raw materials being used or re-purposed, and organic shapes filling our homes, it was only a matter of time before the critters made their way into our bedrooms, kitchens, and closets.
These are not the cartoonish butterflies of nurseries done in pink and purple. We are seeing butterflies in moody colors and elegant shapes or bright whimsical patterns in wallpaper that almost seem to be a part of a narrative. Butterflies on a dinner plate, which may sound unappetizing, are chic and romantic and an easy way to incorporate the trend. You may want to go bold with more butterflies covering more ground, and an area rug is the perfect way to do that.
As we happily flit from early spring into the later weeks of May, we can't think of a better reason to let the butterflies into our homes.
