Dr. Bird juicer imm living | Brass bird trinket boxes from Mothology | Porcelain dove bobby pin from Revisions Design Studio | Sparrow hooks from DIGS

This skit from the bizarrely funny show Portlandia (my recent discovery!) made me dissolve into a fit of giggles. Touché, Fred Arnell, touché. It’s true that birds are a rather overused theme in design, but that doesn’t mean we should turn our back on all birdy motifs – after all, there’s nothing dull or boring about these feathered goodies!

    I love bird decor. I’ve limited myself to just a few things, but I see things all the time that I really want to own :)

  2. Cannot tell you how utterly OBSESSED my husband is with this show and how it’s completely motivated us to take a visit there sometime. Hilarious!

  3. I love the little bird scarf holders! Those are adorable!!!

  4. Pilar says:

    Oooh these are too sweet, I love the birdy bobby pins!

  5. Ha, yes! I love birds so much regardless of the whole “overplayed” thing in the design world. I don’t really tend to follow trends anyway. And birds are so much more than that!

  6. I love that you embraced the bird. There’s a reason they’re so overused and loved! That coat hanger is SO cute!
