Guest Picks: Bird-Inspired Nursery Decor
Birds evoke a sense of playfulness and free spirit. Perhaps that's why bird-inspired decor is the perfect addition to any children's room, be it modern or traditional. Here are a few of my favorite bird-themed decor items for kids. — Andrika from Nursery Notations
Dr. Hunt Floor Lamp - $560
This whimsical floor lamp, hand-painted and made by artisans in Mexico, is definitely a statement piece for any child's room.
Baby Jives Fabric Bird Mobile - $162
This bird mobile was inspired by a mom and her son watching sparrows hop around in their yard, and the unusual shape truly sets it apart from the standard circular design. It also has a wonderful organic feeling, which I love.
