There is nothing quite like a room filled with delicate and whimsical butterflies to brighten the day of any little girl. From light and airy butterflies with their beautiful butterfly wings dancing from the ceiling to dainty butterflies accenting the corners of a room, butterfly themed decor is a popular option for baby nurseries and little girls rooms.
Why do little girls love butterflies so much? The colorful and beautiful creatures evoke a light and airy feeling that make all things seem possible. Whether they are fluttering through a garden scene or hanging from the corners of a room, butterflies are magical and make little girls feel like they are in a land of make believe or one made especially for a fairy princess. Their delicate nature evokes all of the elements that little girls love.
Creating a butterfly themed nursery or room for your little one is easy to do. Butterflies come in many shapes and forms, a huge variety of colors and patterns, and an assortment of textures and sizes, so no matter what type of room you are hoping to design, there are butterfly decorations and accessories that will fit right in with your vision for the room.
No butterfly themed room is complete without a few of the light and airy creatures hanging from the ceiling. One of the most popular types of butterfly room decorations are the beautiful and colorful sheer butterflies that can be hung from just about anywhere.
These decorations come in a variety of sizes with butterfly wings made from sheer nylon netting. The nylon butterfly wings come in an assortment of different colors and patterns, just like the wide variety of real butterfly wings found in nature, although the most popular color for these whimsical butterflies are in pastel colors ranging from pinks and purples to greens, blues and pale yellows.
As the sheer butterfly wings daintily dangle from the ceiling blowing in the breeze and seemingly fluttering in the air, there are other decorative options that are equally at home in a butterfly themed nursery or room made for a little girl. Butterflies can be painted on the wall and are an easy do-it-yourself project for those with even just a minimum of artistic talent.
There’s no “wrong” way to draw or paint a butterfly, so as long as you can master the basic shape of a small thin body engulfed by expansive butterfly wings on either side, you can create a butterfly. The exact shape of the wings or size of the butterfly is up to you, but it is how you decorate the butterfly wings themselves that will take center stage in your decor.
For nurseries, another great option for a butterfly themed room is to purchase or create a mobile of colorful butterflies. As the light and airy butterflies “fly” above baby’s crib, the colorful butterfly wings will mesmerize baby and keep her stimulated and entertained for hours. Even butterflies that hang from the ceiling around the room will capture the attention of baby throughout the day with their beautiful colors as they flutter in the breeze.
Rooms with butterfly themed decor can also include decorative items such as window treatments, bedding, decorative pillows and other elements that are studded with colorful butterflies or simply are colored to coordinate with other butterfly decorations. Butterfly themed nurseries or bedrooms can also have other garden elements, such as flowers, birds and white picket fences, or they can have fairy-like accents, such as clouds, angels and stars. Sprinkling a few small colorful butterflies around the room in unlikely places, such as at the edge of a shelf or hanging from a mirror, is a great way to add a bit of whimsy and interest to any room.
