A nature-inspired roundup highlights home accents and accessories with colors and layers as intricate as those in a butterfly wing.
By the numbers: There are upward of 17,500 species of butterflies in the world, with around 750 of those in the United States. Dressed for success: Thousands of scales and tiny hairs make up the insect’s wing. Some camouflage with their surroundings, while others employ decorative eyespots to deceive lurking predators. Fun fact: Butterflies taste with their feet. Need for speed: Skipper butterflies can reach speeds up to 37 mph.
