I've Got Butterflies!

Who wouldn't have butterflies after seeing this incredible desk by Piero Fornasetti in a home by world renowned architect Moshe Safdie. Interiors come to life at the hand of designer Suzy Hoodless. House and Garden, February 2006

This is just part of the breath taking 7 foot wide, 6.5 foot tall fiber-optic Niagra Chandelier by designer Bobo Sperlein for Spanish ceramics maker Lladro. It is made up of 300 3-inch tall porcelain Fairies (which at first glance look like a mass of white butterflies!) Stunning! House and Garden, December 2006, Photo by Coppi Barbieri

Three generations of designers came together to create this confection of a Dining Room. Elizabeth Pyne, mother Anne Pyne and grandmother Betty Sherrill, both of McMillen, Inc. collaborated in choosing this butterfly wallpaper by Osborne and Little: Papilio Prints Alium. I also can't resist the Rene-Lucien Prou iron chairs! House and Garden, November 2006, Photo by James Merrell

This lovely and restful Dining Room by designer Kevin Carrigan of Calvin Klein and partner architect Tim Firzer shows that traditional collection of framed butterflies translates beautifully in a more contemporary setting. Elle Decor, June 2007; photo by Roger Davies

So now that butterflies are all you can think about, let's go do some shopping!

This beautiful wallpaper on the left is from the Spring Lake collection from Thibaut called Lillian (Fabric also available). Architectural Digest, August 2006. I think the 1st dibs lamps with the butterfly cut-outs would look lovely in a bedroom with this wallpaper!

I could see these paper butterfly shadowboxes from Martha Stewart Crafts (as seen on Happy Mundane blog) in a room with these great side tables by House Eclectic (available in lots of great colors!)

And I came across these wonderful butterfly block prints by Esty artist Amanda Kindregan (a steal at $12.00!) There are more fab prints on her website that are well worth the visit!
