I realized recently that I have decorated with birds in almost every room of my home. I didn’t even know that I was drawn to tree-dwellers, but their sweet presence does make me happy.
I bought these balsa wood birdhouses at a local hobby store and my husband painted them all different colors. We unified the look by making all the roofs silver, then we hung them over my son’s crib. They’re so incredibly lightweight that we weren’t worried about safety, but we still secured them really well.
When we moved into our house two years ago, I wanted to make a big splash in our home office. It’s a space used almost exclusively by me, and I had my eye on this graphic bird wallpaper by Cavern home.
I picked up several of these very inexpensive little silver birds at the craft store in the clearance bin. I had a different intention for them originally, but they’ve ended up migrating around the house. I have them on the windowsill in the kitchen, on a ledge in the bathroom, and now on the mantle in my pink living room.
These white paper mache birds called to me from a little home boutique. Now they sit on my formal dining room table.
Birds are such a versatile design element. They can be both cute and sophisticated!
Are you as drawn to birds in home decor as I am?
