Inspired by our favourite mid-century designs, our Retro Flower butterfly House has been created with the contemporary garden in mind. Whether brightening your outdoor space or buying as a gift for the person who has everything, it can be personalised with colours to match and complement a garden colour scheme. Whether for the keen gardener, the keen butterfly fan, or simply someone who loves colour, by selecting your own colours the bird box can be made entirely unique. Choose a main colour, a roof colour (which will also be applied to the flower) and then add your required personalisation (up to 12 characters) which we will paint in a complementary colour.

Our Retro Flower butterfly house is carefully handmade by us here at Lindleywood, We have been handcrafting our painted wooden boxes since 2008 from high-grade sustainable European redwood pine (known as Scot's Pine) supplied by a small local woodmerchant.They are then handpainted with water-based wood paints suitable for exterior use. These paints, by a small independent British manufacturer from the northwest of England (who have been creating paints since 1773), enable us to create beautiful products that are non-toxic to plants and wildlife.
The butterfly house roof lifts off for easy cleaning, the box comes with full mounting and care instructions (we even include the screws) and it is a usable butterfly house to provide shelter for those delicate creatures on wet and windy days, not to mention somewhere to hibernate in winter.
Important note regarding colours: The colours shown on our paint chart are the colours we have available as standard. Please note that although we have tried to accurately portray these colours, Internet browsers and screens may cause colours to appear slightly differently.
PLEASE NOTE that all items are individually handmade and personalised by us in the UK and each one takes time to produce. Because of the handmade nature, one item will differ slightly from another and may not appear exactly as in the photographs of other products. This means that each product is entirely unique and extremely individual!
Also note that as we make each item from wood there may some variation in grain. Over time there may also be movement in joints and surfaces. This is down to the nature of ‘real wood' as opposed to synthetic materials and we feel further adds to the individuality of each product.
The retro flower bird box measures approximately 25cm (h) x 14cm (w) x 18cm (d).
