Butterflies are truly wonderful little creatures… no, wait a moment. Can we say that they’re “little creatures”, if the biggest of them can outgrow some species of birds? The wingspan of some species can reach up to 30 cm (almost 12 inches)! For an insect, that’s almost an unimaginably huge size. So, let’s scratch “small” and start again: butterflies are wonderful, but mainly it’s their beauty that takes our breath away. There’s something magical in observing a butterfly that has landed on a flower and, depends on whether it’s closed or opened its wings, looks either like an interesting piece of dried leaf or iridescent rainbow that became alive. No wonder that our butterfly murals are so popular!
Many people, when they first hear about butterfly designs, think about child’s room decoration. And they are right, such colorful and adorable motif will fit such room perfectly! You don’t need many decorations when you choose a butterfly wallpaper: it can “make” a whole decor by itself! Our murals will also be great for a child’s room because they are washable - and in this case, as we’ve already mentioned, it can basically prove necessary…
Colorful butterfly wings (of course, in cruelty free version: no insects were harmed in the making of our wall murals!) can be a cute decoration of various interiors - both private ones as well as public company offices. What should you pay close attention to, while selecting a motif? We have a couple of tips for you!
In interior décor, the color scheme is the key element. If you’re considering butterfly murals, then we can assume that you’re a person who enjoys colorful decorations. Interiors heavily decorated with various appliances and knickknacks are best to decorate with butterflies murals in shades of white, or the ones that have just one, big butterfly (and not a swarm of insects in various shapes and colors). Thanks to that, you will avoid the impression of color overload. In case of minimalistically decorated interiors, or any other “economic” decors, like Scandinavian style, it’s completely the other way around: here, you can go crazy with patterns, and your interior will thank you for that!
One butterfly or an entire swarm? The key point are proportions. If you’ll decorate a very small interior - for example, a typical bathroom - with a mural with a huge macro photo of a butterfly, you will overwhelm your interior, as it will seem much smaller. On the other hand, it you’ll choose a butterfly mural with tiny, subtle insects, it won’t be expressive enough to create a strong effect in a very spacy interior. Harmony is very important!
Bright or dark? This is where the size of interior comes into play: most of interior designers advise against decorating walls of small rooms with dark shades, because they can optically reduce their size.
