Birds of a Feather

What is it with birds? They seem to have such staying power in the world of interior decor. I can remember them in fabrics in my grandmother's living room and in her collection of Rose Medallion china, and they are still as present as ever. Maybe it's because there are so many different species of birds, so many different colors and feather patterns, so many different ways to incorporate them.

Fromental does a beautiful job with their handmade wallpaper. All the designs are hand painted onto silk backgrounds. Their Chinoiserie and 20th Century collections both incorporate birds in a beautiful way -- one more traditionally, one a bit more modern, both elegant.
