A Bird’s Eye View

A High Point Market Countdown ~ “Details in Design” ~ #2

Most of us are familiar with the expression, “a little bird told me . . .”, and we understand the bearer of the news just can’t contain their excitement.  They just have to give us a tid-bit of information so we’ll be in the inner loop. 

So – without keeping you in suspense, I’ll have to share “Details in Design ~ #2.  Here is my prediction for one of the recurring motifs which should be seen at the High Point Spring Market:

Birds 1 

Pearson Furniture is offering it in a subtle pillow accent.

CR Laine upholstery pops it, in this chair, with a bit of green.

Then, they offer a different accoutrement in aqua.

Maybe this little “nest” of a room, from Thibaut, will help.

Perhaps a visit from “Edgar”, by artist Robin Maria Pedrero, would open your “peepers”.

SE-850Birds

Sedgefield by Adams has carried this “flock of friends” for the past few years.  I never get tired of stopping by to visit their roosting spot.

This Barbara Cosgrove porcelain lamp is a “tweetrific” example of transforming a traditional design with a modern shade.

Yes - if you’re an admirer of all things avian, this should be your season!  I’ll be sure to put this on my trend watch list, and will tweet, (report), back to you.

Cheerful chirps your way!  ~ Wanda

That Thibaut bird is my favorite.

Beautiful birds :-) I really like the cushion in the first picture and the green chair from CR Laine.

At first, I thought the room with the wallpaper and matching fabric on the chair was a bit of overkill. But the more I looked at it, the more I started to like the boldness of the pattern. I think it works because all of the other elements lend some quiet and calmness. And the painted cabinet backs are great :-)

Great fabric. Not sure if I could handle the wallpaper but the fabrics are lovely. Those CR Laine chairs are calling my name - and that from a neutral person!
