We have had so many butterflies visiting our flowers this year that I got to thinking about designing a space around these lovely lepidopterans. After finding a photo of a butterfly-inspired table, the dining room seemed the obvious choice. Here is what I came up with:
|Clockwise from top left: Vanessa Table from Bonaldo; Rosewood Butterfly Dining Chairs from Red Modern Furniture; Butterfly Cafe Lumbar Pillow Cover from Pottery Barn; Swallowtail Butterfly Pitcher from Laura Zindel Design; Lepidoptera propriedae VII by Lacey Terrell; Butterfly Pendant Light by Alex Earl; Lenox Butterfly Meadow All Purpose Glasses from Belk; Black Felt Butterfly Placemat (no longer available); Center: Butterfly Plates from Signals; Background: Giandia Blasco Butterfly Rug from 2Modern.|
Having butterflies in the dining room would be like dining al fresco on a perfect summer day all year round -- I could get used to that!
