There’s something so calming yet mystical about butterflies. They symbolize powerful transformation that leads to spiritual growth and joy. To me, butterflies represent the” beauty” and “good” in a world of chaos and suffering. These whimsical creatures have mesmerized so many people, including myself that I had to incorporate a butterfly into my logo to illustrate not only transformation of physical spaces, but also inner transformation of one’s soul. From furniture to carpets and accessories, designers have long been fascinated by these magical creatures. Butterflies bring lots of vibrant colors and happiness with them, while taking wing and setting the hearts of the design world aflutter with their grace and charm. Watching them dance as they flutter from flower to flower is truly breathtaking and inspiring. Butterfly decorations are no longer just designated to kids’ rooms. It’s become a popular design trend that is celebrated in a variety of spaces with sophisticated accents. It makes the perfect statement in your home or office that are great conversation pieces. Check out some ways that you can incorporate butterflies to create a soothing and calming sanctuary!
