For a while, owls were the bird of choice for many decorators. You couldn’t escape them. They popped up on candles, textiles and even soap. I get why; they’re cute, connote wisdom and have adorable eyes, but they’ve had their moment to shine. Now that summer’s in season, it’s time for another feathered friend to take over: pretty-and-pink flamingos. They own these hotter months, and over the years their image has become synonymous with parties, flourishing lawns and frolicking outdoors.
Here at Design*Sponge, we love the bird’s unique color and goofy shape. We’ve become so enamored with the flamingo as of late, we’ve rounded up some simple ways you can bring this warm-weather trend home. From simple matchbooks to bold wallpaper, each offers its own way of incorporating a pop of pink and is sure to add a dash of summer to your space. Some are bold while others are more subtle, but no matter which look you choose, one thing is for sure — these long-legged beauties will keep you smiling all season. Enjoy! —Garrett
