The March issue of Coastal Living is full of colorful fabulousness.
Within the issue, they highlight ways to give your home a boost of color with vintage “treasures”. I was surprised to see #4: Ceramic Parrots.
Let me start by saying: I hate birds. Real birds (sorry all you bird lovers!). But they freak me out. Especially when they are flying around above my head (hello city pigeons!). However, porcelain or ceramic bird statues I like. I’ve always found them charming, and have picked up several ceramic birds over the last couple of years.
This pair was just stunning, and they lived on my mantel until they sold so that I could enjoy them for as long as possible!
This guy just sold last week! The buyer must be up on the trend!
And this little guy, though not a tropical bird, is equally cute and colorful. (He’s available now!)
And if you’re not a figurine collector, there are other ways to incorporate birds into your decor!
I’m not sure birds work in every decor scenario, but they are fun to look at when used in the right place.
(Okay, now please tell me I’m not the only one out there who is freaked out by live birds!).
