Put a bird on Muriel Brandolini

I should probably stop posting anything to do with birds.  The terrible title of this post is evidence that it comes up a lot.  But here's the thing:  birds are one of those things that are classic in design and just happen to be super trendy and possibly overdone these past two years or so.

The nice part of this is the trickle down effect.

I blogged about this room from Muriel Brandolini when I was planning a project to display kid art.  Here.

And guess what?

Bam, a knock off.

While I am officially too old to shop clothes at Urban Outfitters, I love the way they keep fresh trends cheap.  I would consider that decal for my powder room, come to think of it...


  1. We share a love of bird motifs. Stop by when you get a chance and look at my most recent fabric find. I think you might like it!

  2. Cute! I do like Urban Outfitters.


  3. That's kinda fun...even though birds freak me out...I can handle those kind...

  4. One is never too old to shop at urban outfitters. :) At least that's what I tell Michael as I'm dragging him in. I do love these birds. I just got a wedding invite from an artist friend who made a print very similar on lime green.

    1. Oh, you just wait. In 10 years, you will not think one is never too old to shop at Urban! I used to think you could always find a cute and trendy item or two that remained age appropriate (like at H+M). For a while, I though Urban was trending younger and younger (their models sure were), but then I had to come to terms with the fact that it was actually just me, going the other way!


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
