Butterfly Theme Bedrooms: Design Ideas

How to Create Butterfly Theme Bedrooms

What little girl wouldn’t adore a pretty room filled with magical butterflies? Butterfly theme bedrooms are simple to create, and the possibilities are endless. It’s a perfect theme for a room to dream, play and grow in, inspiring little imaginations through the use of color, shape and form.

This design of room very appeals to me, as I believe that it is a soothing and relaxing environment, filled with meadows, soft colors, grass, butterflies, flowers, and whimsical objects. Although this is how I envision a butterfly room to be, there are many variations that can be created.

Before beginning to create a butterfly theme bedroom, it is a good idea to choose the bedding prior to the color of paint and accessories that will be incorporated. There are many butterfly quilts, comforters and bedding sets available, in a wide variety of patterns. Most butterfly bedding has soft pastel colors, such as pale pink, yellow, purple or meadow green. These colors work well in creating a soft dreamy feel. Another option is to purchase a solid comforter or quilt set, and add giant butterfly pillows, sheets and shams in butterfly print. There is also butterfly bedding available in brighter red, orange and yellow.

Once the bedding has been chosen, it’s time to select a wall paint color. I suggest bringing a pillow sham or the complete bedding set into the paint store with you when viewing samples. Once the walls are painted, a butterfly theme wallpaper border can be added. Other options include butterfly wall stencils, murals, or hand-painted garden scenes with butterflies, bees, flowers, and a picket fence.

For those not wanting to paint, you can also purchase stick on wall decals or wallpaper murals. A creative idea for butterfly theme bedrooms, is to paint or apply a purchased mural of a beautiful garden scene and add a wood frame with shutters around it to depict a window.

Creative Design Ideas for Butterfly Theme Bedrooms:

  1. A picket fence really compliments a butterfly theme bedroom, creating a garden inspired look to the room. There are several options available in creating a picket fence. You can use real fence posts painted white, hand paint a picket fence onto the wall, or apply a WALLIES pre-pasted, vinyl cut-out of a fence. Silk vines and flowers can be incorporated. A trellis with soft arches can run the length of a wall. One of the most compelling butterfly theme bedrooms that I have viewed, had the walls painted a sunny yellow color, where yellow graduated in shade, darker at the bottom, becoming lighter as it reached the ceiling point. Real fence posts were painted white, and attached section by section to the wall. Soft rose color wall paint was applied behind the fence section only. Large paper flowers were wound around the posts. Faux-painted grass, butterflies and ladybugs were then painted randomly. It created a very whimsical and magical look to the room.
  2. There is also a wide range of butterfly and garden theme art work and prints available, or it can be very simple to create your own. You can cut out images from magazines or books, place them in frames and hang them on the wall or arrange in small groups on dressers and bookcases. There are many photo stock images that can be purchased for a minimal price online. Artists create ‘vector’ images of butterflies in a wide variety of colors. I usually purchase mine from istock.com. They can be printed and framed. If you are familiar with Adobe Photoshop or similar program, you can add your child’s name to the image, adjust colors or combine several images. Dragonflies, butterflies, flowers, bumblebees and ladybugs can all be used.
  3. Some great accessories are nylon hanging butterflies, which can be attached to the ceiling or wall. You can purchase butterfly switch plates, lamps and stools. Little butterflies can be glued to an existing lampshade. Hang a clothesline/clothespins with tiny doll dresses in pretty fabrics against a wall.
  4. Classic white furniture looks wonderful with this theme. Be sure to choose dainty pieces that don’t compete with the delicate butterflies. Canopy beds or white metal beds also fit in well. A sheer canopy can have butterflies randomly glued in place. Replace handles and knobs of furniture with butterfly theme hardware such as dainty porcelain with hand painted butterflies. You can decoupage butterflies onto a dresser – or border around a mirror. Try hand painting a dresser, with the first drawer having a soft yellow background, with roses applied, second drawer background in a soft pink, with purple polka dots, and the third bottom drawer having a purple background with yellow butterflies painted on. Let fabrics, artwork and bedding inspire you.
  5. A carpet in a soft grass green color or rosy pink that compliments the walls and bedding is a nice touch. A neutral color also blends in well and won’t detract from wall art and other decor.
  6. You can purchase butterfly curtains, and butterfly hold-backs. I think that sheer white curtains fluttering the breeze, teamed with a gingham valence provides a stunning effect. You can purchase organza ribbon, and glue small nylon butterflies where it ties, or randomly throughout the curtain. Floral patterns can also be incorporated.

Ranch Style House Home Tour

This stunning ranch style house is perched high on a hilltop and nestled among the trees claiming its rightful place on a scenic 200-acre property in Texas. The owner desired an ample yet understated home with natural and simple architectural expression that would blend effortlessly into the landscape that surrounds it. Heavy timber columns and stone walls ground the home to the site. Reclaimed siding and simple barn-like structures give the architecture a sense of history and regional belonging. Referencing the owner’s love of the old west, many of the interior walls showcase the same stone and wood that is on the exterior of the home. This gesture alludes to a time when materials were not mass produced but simply gathered from the area and formed as needed.
