Bird wallpaper – the good, the bad and the ugly

It’s official, I’m completely torn by bird wallpapers. In some ways I find them adorable and the perfect finishing touch to a country-style scheme – especially a pretty little guest bedroom. However, in other ways I find them … well … quite frightening actually. The antique bird or retro bird ‘look’ just isn’t for me.

Here’s how far by bird wallpaper love goes…

The good – cute, country and destined for a guest bedroom, this simple bird wallpaper adds a welcoming touch.

The bad – hmmmmmm, a retro bird feature wall isn’t for me, but I’d certainly give this Seventies-inspired print marks for an eye-catching focal point.

The ugly – this is decorating hell for me. Too many birds, too many antiques, I would feel like I was on a period drama set, not my actual living room!

    The first one is so pretty, but that red one is disgusting, ewwwww!

    If bird wallpaper’s all a bit too much for you, just hang a lovely bird print up instead – like this beautiful limited edition print in striking shades of red and blue:

    I love the title of this post. So true! Bird wallpaper can really run the gamet between delicious and pure disgust.
