Don't Bug Me.
The essence of Entomophobia or the fear of insects is an interesting case.
The spring season is upon us as the season of the garden is as well. I love insect inspired design and decor.
The post below incorporates some of the types of insects from the animal kingdom.
I perhaps may be an insect that lives in a colony where there is a division of labor.
an animal with segmented body, exoskeleton and joined appendages
This room to me is a turning of rooms and one part off the main living area is this lovely library.
I love the library wall filled with books which even lead you to more segments in life.
I do love this room, the leopard print carpet is also the icing on the cake. The gray or tobacco color is the next color section up for discussion at La Maison Fou.
a body fused by fusing the head and thorax
This baby nursery is so different to me and incorporates a little color from the ceiling which goes all the way to the flooring. The punches of color add a twist to an otherwise neutral colored room.I also love the different colors and shapes of the ceiling bouquet.
the half leathery,front wings of true bugs
This chesterfield sofa is so leathery and comfy feeling.
A pic from flickr softened with the walls and muted colors in the rug as well as the industrial looking lighting and vintage framed map.
Saw these in many stores in the city, these particular paperweights are specimen's encased in the clear weighted encased square. These insects are really wonderful specimen's and bring a little bit of the outdoor inside. These are from not on the high street .com
Many different ways to show and create with insects on the wall or sitting on a hall table.
This montage is featured in Lonny magazine.
I love the wall specimen collections hanging or sitting, notice the insect encased on the table top.
The urge to adorn, interchangeable belt buckles.
These are insect and botanical inspired looking wearable art.

Check out your local flea market or vintage stock book store.
These framed or used for printing would look interesting on unexpected pieces.
