The last few times I went to scope out trends at home decor shows, it felt a bit like I was birdwatching. What was that flash of green: a crested cockatoo? Over there—a blue macaw! Parrots and other tropical birds—their likenesses, not the real deal—seemed to be everywhere.
As proof, here are a few of my snaps:
Goofy trend? Yes. But I find it very refreshing, because A) I love color, B) I love vintage ornithological prints and sketches, and C) I’m getting sick to death of all the other animal trends of late—the barn owls, the foo dogs, the octopi, the tortoise shells, the horses. Parrots? RAWK! I can do parrots. And they go so nicely with all of the jungle-licious decor trends I’ve been seeing lately, like palm leaves, pineapples, succulents, rattan furniture, and string hammocks.
