Just in time for spring, a new trend emerges...Birds, baby, Birds! And I’m not talking the Angry kind you mindlessly play on your phone!
The trend is catching on throughout home decor and fashion alike. We're seeing birds flocking around everywhere, specifically as graphic patterns and bold, bright colors, pillows, wall paper, upholstery, art pieces, unique wall decor and even fun tabletop accessories.
They are an excellent way to add some color and can be creatively showcased throughout your home in different themes; whimsical, sophisticated, modern or traditional.
Take your choice of decorating with peacocks, love birds, turtle doves (in a pear tree...hehe), blue jays, hummingbirds or whichever species fascinates you!
Personally, I think the peacock is a beautiful bird; the gorgeous hues of blues and greens and golds are just breathtaking to me. And the brighter the colors the better, but if you want to start off small with your bird bliss, this beautiful hand-poured candle finished with a brilliantly beaded and glittery peacock from Pier 1 would be the perfect accent starting point for your room.
It's okay to take baby steps and then maybe expand onto a desk accessory and then perhaps a piece of wall art carrying the same theme. Simple yet eye-catching!
Some of you may get a little more enthusiastic with bird houses and stuffed birds, but PLEASE just be sure to not overdo it. You don’t want your living room looking like a scene from the Alfred Hitchcock movie...YIKES!!!
But don't be afraid...if you’re bold enough to try something more permanent like a wallpaper, stick with something a bit more modern, so it adds elegance and can stand the test of time.
If carefully done, you can pass this bird trend with flying colors!
