Feathers for Year-Round Spring Sophistication

Have you spotted that first spring robin yet? As the weather warms up, the sweet song of the birds (accompanied by the honking of the Canadian geese as they return from their extended Florida vacation) heralds the arrival of spring. To capture some of that natural light, joy, and freshness of the season, add feathers to your home!

Stay away from the cheesy – think feather boas or feathery pillows – and choose feather decor wisely. Just a touch of plumage has the power to reawaken spring loveliness throughout the year, with a subtle message: take flight!

Try feathers as sophisticated accents; art of all sizes and applications or light fixtures:
