It's All About the Birds

It's All About the Birds

Looks like the bird theme is still going strong in the home decor and crafting zeitgeist (check out how many bird related items there are on Etsy). I suspect being cooped up in an office cubicle all day has something to do with my own bird/nature infatuation. Here are five of my favourite bird-themed home decor products I've seen online, in print and in person recently [left, clockwise].

We saw this two-piece whimsical ceiling hung cuckoo clock showcased by Progetti SRL at this year's ICFF, but it unfortunately appears it hasn't made its way to retail quite yet. But the Birds of a Feather Mobile is available online, alongside the set of 8 Birds Wall Stickers (there's also a fanciful sparrow wall sticker). Bird themed interior murals seem increasingly popular DIY projects. And there's even am avian-centric store/design team (their Early Bird Pendant light shown below is my favourite in their product line).

I guess it's all connected to the idea of nesting and bringing nature indoors, as we've got our own bird sculpture and a set of vintage bird clothes pins that hold our favourite postcards. But this might be going too far.
