Guest Post: Birds of a Feather by the Fabulous Torie Jayne

Today we have a special treat. We are so thrilled to welcome Torie Jayne as a guest blogger! For those of you who haven’t meandered over to Torie’s blog make sure to run your fingers right over. It is seriously one of my favorite sites and is so pretty that it always provides a breath of inspiration. ~ Megan

Hello lovelies, this is Torie Jayne visiting the lovely BonBon Rose girls! I was all in a flutter as to what my post should be about and then it came to me… I would share with you my love of our feathered friends!

Over the past few years birds have been moving to fashion and interiors, from the flamboyant colourful flamingos and peacocks to the small, softly-coloured birds that you’re more likely to find in your back garden.

How wonderful are the pretty spring flowers and birds wall stickers, one of the hottest trends for walls at the moment. Then there’s the whimsical bird candle holders in white and chartreuse. Perfect for alfresco dining!

For a more subtle bird look there’s the coral and turquoise bird stud earrings and what better place to keep them than the branches of the bird scroll jewelery stand.

The birds in my bedroom at the bottom are delicate, pretty and vintage. There is the hand painted tin bird hanging in a bird cage atop my wardrobe, bird hooks on the wall where I hang all my pretties, and shimmery bird printed curtains.

Have a sweet day!
