From chrysalis to spring flight, butterflies are all grown up-for the home this year. We're excited to see butterflies done in a classy fashion — elegant and graceful like the delightful insect itself. To avoid being too cutesy, butterflies are done best on clean backgrounds, such as white fabric, or in small groupings, such as one or two per mug. Of course, a cluster of butterflies on a piece of art could have the same effect on a bare, white wall.
This trend is just another fun facet of the rainbow-colored upbeat optimism we're seeing right now. Above:
