It’s high time to start dreaming about the sun, rainbows and summer! Today we’d like to tell you how to bring some spring into your winter interiors with the help of simple and beautiful butterfly wall décor.


So, your reading nook, dressing table zone or bedroom is ready for designer experiments, you already found a few hours of free time and can’t wait to be hit by inspiration.

Let’s start from outlining a treatment area. Butterfly wall décor that we’d like to use in our interior doesn’t require much space, and can be designed in various ways – bright and eye-catchy or translucent and neutral.

You can buy ready-made butterfly décor in a store, but we’d recommend you to create it with your own hands. Firstly, kids can be involved in the process, and secondly, in case of manual labor you can have complete control over colors, shapes, sizes and design.


Here is a romantically gothic option – black on white. All the butterflies are similar in shape, but a little different in size. You can even leave notes on them. And of course, before getting down to application it’s worth making sure that the color won’t create a disconnection between wall design and the rest of the interior.


If you don’ feel like using scissors – try origami.


On this image you can see how a purple pattern of the decorative pillow inspired the masters to pick up on the naturalistic theme and replicate the purple shade in the wall art. A whole bunch of handmade butterflies have inhabited their bedroom wall. It obviously took a few evenings to create, but the emotions it causes are worth these efforts.


If you have a few butterflies printed on paper, they can be used as stencils for creating colorful copies.


This is a more complicated version of a naturalistic composition, which perfectly fit into the newborn’s bedroom.


You adore Christmas wreaths, don’t you? So, why wait for December? You can create wreaths every month: for the coming of winter or spring, for holidays or just because you are in a good mood. Such a wreath is a good piece of wall art and the nicest thing about it is that it’s easily handmade with kids.


Something more picturesque, well-though-out and comprehensive can be made if you can handle oils and canvas. And again you’ll need handmade butterflies!


And this is a bonus for the most patient. The image shows everything schematically, clearly, logically and beautifully.
