Birdwatch at home !!

Being a CT girl, I am drawn to the outdoors. I live in NYC now..... I needed to bring the outdoors into my apt, nothing says outdoor's like birds... and you don't have to get one of those chirpy little fellas!!!

they are made by Dwell and called the "Chinoiserie" duvet set. You can go to
they start at $310.00.

I am on ETSY all the time and found these great watercolor prints! I love birds (as you can tell with the sheets)! you can't get something more from the outdoors in then a bird. But you don't have to get the bird to do so!!!  This seller has beautiful, delicate watercolors that I love. Visit her shop! you can cluster a bunch on your wall, i would keep the frames simple, you don't want to take away from the delicate water color print.
Vintage bird cages are sooo cute!!! There are so many ways you can use one as a decorative piece. They are something you can find anywhere on Etsy, Ebay, thrift stores or flea markets... I like this one I found on Ebay! What I would do with this is wire it ....put an Edison bulb in it and hang it in the corner of a room a great hanging light.  BUT you can also put it on a side table with a LED candle in it... (I would use a real candle but this one is made of wood!  Only if it is a metal cage.) You don't even have to light it up you can still hang it in a corner and it will look great !!!

Wall Paper is a bit old fashioned.....I still think it can add so much to a space.  You can wallpaper one wall or a whole room to add a punch of whatever you like.
I found this wallpaper at Louise Body Wallpaper it's an English Company, 60 pounds per roll.
To the left its called "Garden Bird" i love the faint colors the birds are so nice and subtle and easy to decorate around. Right hand side is "Harry's Garden"in black and white and this is great of you want to get a little bolder for a room.
John Derian is AMAZING, he is my favorite thing in decoupage !
I showed you some water colors for the wall ... however, I love hanging plates on the wall. You can mix and match the watercolors with the plates too for wall decor.
here are some of his plates with birds.  Don't think you have to stick to one bird type... only owls or only songbirds... mix and match your birds to get the whole FLOCK in !!!!

go get those birds in the house !!!!!
