Ode to the Flamingo

A little ode to the flamingo today to kick off the week. An amazing bird with all it's beautiful hues of pinks from coral, to powder pink and a little fuschia –I've been loving seeing them popping up in interiors lately, have you? Brings the wild tropical influence indoors and I think it's the unique profile and natural muted colors that work well in creating a contrast to our indoor spaces.

I would have never thought of flamingos like this. Very beautiful.

Becca - I know i might have to get that wallpaper for something!

Hi Leaca! Me too actually - I'm surprised how well they fit into a space if done tastefully.

I also would have never thought about putting up flamingo-anything as decor, but these all look amazing!

How I need to read on a canadian blog that there's a new restaurant in my home town, which looks very nice indeed. I love the internet.
