With summer just underway, now’s a perfect time to redecorate (not that anyone should ever need to find an excuse to do a little feng shui). Lately brands are using cute critters to liven up, well, basically anything. It’s all about bringing the outdoors indoors, and these are five quaint and quirky pieces that would be a great addition to anyone’s home:
Owls have been especially trendy for several years now, making their way onto necklaces, pillows, and even watches (to the point of being a tad tiresome). This mug, as the name suggests, is a surprising and fun way to display the animal kingdom’s wisest bird, and all you’ll need is matching mugs (they come in “squirrel” and “fox” as well) and an impressive assortment of coffees and teas to better show off this little collection.
With a complimentary winestopper and corkscrew, this eye-catching piece is for the deep sea lover in all of us. Consider a dark blue/indigo/violet color scheme to achieve that wonderfully-sexy Ursula look.
Okay, so this one’s “technically” for children, but, being from Ikea, it’s sold at an amazing price and looks like it just leapt out of some vintage storybook. Paired with some mushroom stools from Modcloth and a little mood-lighting, this mirror could be the centerpiece for a fairytale of a bedroom/living room.
Pillows may be some of the easiest décor to find, but this skillfully-drawn, serene little furball is just perfect for any home, especially since he’ll match anything in it.
Alright, so finding great apartment gear at Anthropologie is no challenge, but this lamp was just too sweet to resist, and, compared to some of the other lamps, significantly less expensive.
