Rediscover the Beauty of Butterfly Interiors

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

This week I had the pleasure of going with my little boy on his school trip to Bristol Zoo.  It was a fun day and as we were leaving we came upon the Butterfly garden, tucked in a quiet corner of the zoo.  When we entered at first we were taken by the heat, then wonder as circling around use were a large number of butterflies of all sizes and colours.  They vivid tones danced round the room and we tried to capture them on our cameras. Butterfly Garden Bristol Zoo, Andrea Morgan Their patterns are incredible and it was whilst I was stood there, in a middle of a show of vivid pantonal splendor I fell in love with them all over again.  If like me, you have in the past been unsure about using Butterflies in your interior design, I am here to tell you things have changed.  This years trend of botanical delights has seen the butterfly used in creative designs that are contemporary and striking. You won't have to go far on the high street to see the botanical trend, from Matalan to John Lewis, every home collection has embraced it in their own way.  Let me help you re-discover the beauty of  butterfly interiors.
