Butterflies Through a New Lense
Sticky-sweet butterfly motifs are so prevalent in little girls' rooms that sometimes it's easy to forget just how exotic and rich-looking the creatures are. Unless by chance you've been recently looking at the work of E. A. Séguy. But I think with Bright Star, director Jane Campion and her director of photography, Greig Fraser, remind us of the jewel-tone butterfly's incredible allure.
If you haven't already seen it, click here for one small scene from the film: "Fanny in the room with butterflies." I predict many boutique window stylists will be inspired by this clip. To go shopping with the film's set decorator, Charlotte Watts, click here.
Assouline's beautiful volume, Botanicals: Butterflies & Insects is available through Amazon, and Pachanga, designer Belen Mena's lavish tome, is available at Anthropologie.
