Bird Watching


The green palette in this bedroom shown in Better Homes and Gardens is absolutely on trend. The bedding, the plant and the prints are beautifully coordinated. Extra points for the many, vibrant colours of the prints.


A space with a Nordic vibe will be more than happy to host vintage bird art. Choose prints in greys, blacks and earthy tones, and – for calm and balance – buy some slick, thin white frames.


These two colourful birds are to be found in the bohemian home of Melbourne illustrator and designer Paula Mills. They make this room extra playful, eclectic and adventurous. Use old-fashioned poster hangers for an even more bohemian vibe.



Want your room to really stand out? Find a painter to make you a great wall painting, like Turkish artist Ismail Acar. Or choose an impressive wall paper, like this Great Escape wallpaper by Wall & Deco.


Grey is going to be a huge interior trend. A perfect bird for grey interiors is, of course, a grey heron. Give your print a chic vibe by using a baroque golden frame. PS you can download this heron artwork for free at


The fabulous focal point of this wall gallery is the owl. Because of its beautiful wings, but also because of its size and wooden frame. All in all, this is a pretty great collection of prints, the colours of which are nicely reflected in the accessories below.


This cool bedroom is all about black details: the bed frame, chandelier and picture frame. The last one is hosting a vintage reproduction of Audubon’s Society White Heron Illustration, sold by Etsy Shop ArchivePrintCo.


Romantics, this is it! A bird with a beautiful, large feathered tail is the perfect choice for your retro bedroom, says this picture in Rebecca Atwood’s book Living With Pattern.

The Female Form


This copy of an expressive Gustav Klimt drawing is quite the eye catcher. In an unexpected way, it complements the rawness of the wooden bench and vase, and even the lettering on one of the books.


Go big or go home! If you have the space, why not get an exceptionally large artwork? If you keep it simple, mostly white and with a thin frame, your room will still look as spacious as before. This artwork is by Celine Ziang.


The balance of this collection of prints is just gorgeous: the images, the colours, the frames – it all works together. The bedding is picked with equal care. Wouldn’t you like to curl up here?


Not really into romantic images of the female form? Are you looking for something with a lot of power and expression? Etsy store Neilina has just the thing for you: a strong image that will give your interior a daring look.


This print from Etsy shop Prodigy Print gives, with all its wonderful grey tones, an illusion of depth and movement of light. A great choice if you’re not into line drawings of nudes so much and are looking for something different.


Here’s proof that nude drawings really look quite amazing in a bedroom. This one is stark and subtle, but still sensuous. The blonde wood and blush tones are perfect company.


This drawing is so simple, yet so very gorgeous. The quite broad black frame and lighter border add chic to the minimalist print, which is from Urban Outfitters. Add a candle and sheepskin for maximum sensuality.


This picture is proof that: hanging a bunch of nudes together looks pretty great, and that nudes look right at home in a bohemian interior. The way the chairs match with the colours of the artworks is pretty classy.
