It also reminded me of one of my favorite bird-related decor items: a birdcage. Not for birds to live in, mind you—birds should be wild and free and outdoors—but just a decorative cage, to hang or stand or mount on a wall and look very chic. Birdcages, especially antique ones, can be ornate or simple, but they are all so graphic and architecturally interesting. Sometimes just what a room needs.
I own just one, and I've painted it chartreuse and it's in my foyer. I'm not a big collector, but I could definitely get into collecting birdcages (either that or watering cans!) by visiting eBay or flea markets (Brimfield's coming up in not too long?).
Have you used birdcages in your decorating? Would you? Here's a little roundup of a few that I think look amazing.
