For those readers lucky enough to have outdoor space to enjoy, birdhouses can be an effective way to bring some life and music into any yard or balcony. Though traditional birdhouses are readily available in stores and online, you can also find a selection of birdhouses to complement your modern design aesthetic. If you are in the midst of a yard makeover, consider adding some fun and functional real estate for your neighborhood birds.

Here is a selection of birdhouses bound to delight the feathered inhabitants of your block:

  • The Pip Pip Birdhouse from designer Stina Sandwell is available in a selection of colors for £74
  • The Birdy Modern Birdhouse from designer Vladimir Jaccard is made of fiber cement and therefore 100% recyclable- not bad for $138
  • The Chalet Bodega, Bodega Tower and Bungalow Bodega are constructed from matte-glazed stoneware topped with recycled teak roofs, and hang from stainless steel hardware on a sisal rope. They range in price from $72 - $75
  • The colorful Gourd Birdhouse may look like real gourds, but are actually made of weatherproof, hard-wearing resin- a real deal for only $14.95
  • The Nest Egg is a ceramic and aluminum tongue-in-cheek addition to your yard; the navy one is on sale for only $70
  • The Marcel Wanders Birdhouse by Droog features a white porcelain plate, topped off with an orange recycled plastic roof for $75
