Ahead of the Curve


Beth over @ Chinoiserie Chic is predicting Flamingo art is trending into the fast lane. So excited! For me they have always had a sweet spot. See her post here ~ she has some killer inspiration.  Audubon Flamingo reproduction above is from Allposters; Beth posted on it here more than a year ago. Such a WOW welcome & receives lots of oohs & awes. Plus it makes me happy, happy, happy every time I walk through the door. Dana Gibson Bargello Pagoda Lantern & front door colors were coordinated to work with the print. Dragon rug; bought on eBay years ago, dragons help ward off evil so you def need them near your entrance way.


In my Mistress Bath which is not quite ready for her closeup I used Cole & Sons Flamingo wallpaper that comes in a collection of divine colors. I ordered several swatches to think on, the charcoal & turquoise was too dark for this room but is gorgeous! Here is a little tease of the Bath.


Love my little flamingo trinket box below.


Vintage print below was found @ a roadside flea haunt & seems to work right along with the wallpaper.


Here are more of the wallpaper colors; Cole and Sons of London.




Beth has some great Pinterest Boards on these magical feathery creatures. Check them out here.

Enjoy!

  4. I love your little flamingo trinket box and the flamingo art! I've been eyeing that piece myself, have been wanting to buy it for our place. I've always been a big fan of flamingos too. I do think they are going to be a big trend, these guys are popping up everywhere. Which is great for us flamingo lovers. I'm still regretting not ordering a flamingo tank top I saw on line, though it was way to pricey!
    Great post!
