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.
