Flamingo!

I’ve been obsessing over flamingos lately. Not sure what it is. I love pink, so there’s that, but I think it’s the grace and curvature of the flamingo that I love. As far as creating my home goes, I’ve always been very personal in my decorating choices, and people that know me well can step into a space of mine and feel that it’s mine, so since I’m currently lovin’ on flamingos, they’re finding their way into my home.

Right now, I’m waiting for these fantastic watercolor prints to arrive from Poland.

I ordered the 20″ x 30″ set and plan to frame them in similar frames as shown but in white with a three inch mat. Below is a set I made on Polyvore that’s what our living room will look like once we get our new couch.

I buy fresh flowers all the time, but to give the room a little more pink to tie into the flamingo prints on the occasion I don’t have any flowers, I bought this vase from Target to sit on the coffee table. I can’t bring myself to buy fake flowers, so this vase does the trick.

But back to the flamingo. Etsy has tons of flamingo prints, and so does Minted.

The greatness doesn’t stop at art prints though. There’s so much amazing flamingo stuff out there. For example,

Like I said, obviously I’m obsessed right now. I would totally wallpaper my guest bathroom in flamingo if my current house were my forever home. Until then, I’ll just stalk Pinterest and dream.
