All of a Flutter with Butterfly prints

Butterfly moodboard

All of a flutter with Butterfly prints 

Inspired by this beautiful butterfly print by Designers Guild –  this look combines a calming collection of soft pastels. This beautiful print comes in several colours and is available in wall paper, fabric and cushions.  For this moodboard I chose Issoria in zinc, which has a lovely mottled concrete background.  Although they say feature walls are out of fashion I do think it works better on just one wall and have added some pastels that I feel could work with it.  If this feels a bit too bed-roomy for you and you want to use it in a living room or hallway you can play safe – just stick to a pale grey and bring some colour in with accessories.  The natural cotton and simple lines of this sofa make it ideal for this look.

This incredibly hyper-real botanical sculpture I have featured is by Carmen Almon , an American artist living in Bordeaux, whose creations are constructed from various metals and finished with oil-paint washes. Carmen’s work is only rarely exhibited, but a gallery can be found on her website. Each piece is separately commissioned and being an Artist and not loving repetition each sculpture will be completely unique. 

Find out more about Carmen on our featured artist’s page.

The elegant 2 piece hand-blown glass pendant is by Sarah Colson, who I was lucky to discover at The London Craft Festival last year. Her lights are all beautifully designed and hand made to order.
