On Trend: Feather Decor Makes Rooms Soar
Bring lightness and a breath of nature to your walls and home decor with feather art, accessories and wall treatments
Feathers can give a room an instant lift. Avoid the boudoir look of feather boas and feather pillows, though. If you're looking for a way to bring some lightness to a room, focus on feather art prints, collections of natural bird feathers, arrows and even feather-print wallpaper. Taking a modern approach to feathers will move your room from feeling stuck on earth to floating on air.
