Have you noticed some creepy crawlies starting to creep into your feeds on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest? I don’t mean realistic photos of spiders and bugs, but beautiful, botanically hand-drawn butterflies, colourful dragonfly motifs on fabrics, vintage bugs on cushions and stick insects stuck on dessert spoons. Some of these designs are quite exquisite and invoke a whole new appreciation for these small critters.
I’ve noticed it in my social news feeds. While not new – using insects for design inspiration in interior decorating has been around for a long time – it’s only recently I’ve started to notice it on social media more and more these days. The rise of the insect trend in interior decorating can be seen in fabrics, wallpaper, and a range of other homewares.
Check out some of the insect-inspired products below, including our own insect wallpaper designs.
