Is This Trend Over?

I've reported extensively on bird motifs in home decor, and I'm wondering if you think that this trend is over, or still alive and well. Regardless, I'm not taking down my favorite bird mobile.

We bought this bird-shaped ceramic lamp at Zellers when I was about 2 years old, and it cost around $6.99. Everyone thinks it's some fancy art piece, when in reality it was probably just the cheapest lamp we could find. Long as there are birds in the air, they'll be in style. You can't go wrong with critters.

I think that you shouldn't always follow trends and instead do things because you like them...who cares if they go "out of style"?

I definitely think well-designed nature patterns and motifs are and will always be classic. That said, I'm totally over the birds on clothing, but am still all for it in home decor. If you love them, you can pick pieces that don't look so overtly trendy..a la Urban Outfitters.. You'll be sick of it fast.

I think, as long as you keep trends subtle (I have that fabulous Dwell chinoiserie duvet with the birds and branches) and don't overload your home with them, they're fine. Birds are birds. It's not like I've plastered my home with pictures of Fabio circa 1994 or something. ;)

Alot of these should have never become a trend anyway.

I didn't know this was a trend, but I'll have to agree with Aimeeb on this ... if you like it, who cares? I think everything you've shown is tasteful and cute - things I'd have in my house (not all together at once, of course!)

if you shop for your home based on trend, you'll hate your home very quickly. i happen to like birds :) so my home has a lot of birds furniture i designed myself w/o being aware of the birds trend.

I think it is always in style in a way that comes and goes. My mom's wedding china and silver had a bird motif, kinda 70's, that I never understood or liked until recently and now i love it!

I think nature inspired decor is always in style.

(But if you glance to the immediate left of your screen, you'll see that this never was a trend for me, but more like a way of life. **smirk**) :p

The only birdie items I have in my home are a set of salt and pepper shakers, because I collect them. I think they're adorable and would have gotten them regardless of trends.

If you like 'em who cares what other people think, that's what I say!
