Maybe I’ve gone a little troppo, but I’m just loving the natural vibe of the flirty feathered friends seen landing en masse in our nests recently. It’s all about simple, nature inspired design, craft and colour, natural and upcycled materials. Take a generous dash of green and team it up with some feathery pink for the perfect spring fling, or should I say, Flamingo fling?

After all, who could go past a trio of super pretty, lovingly upcycled plates? And those renters eagerly hunting wallpaper alternatives will just love Blik’s fabulously fresh fabric wall tiles; what an awesome way to bring the forest to you while animating walls sans commitment. Best of all, when you move on, just roll ‘em up and then roll ‘em out at the new abode. Another recent find and instant fave, is Kip & Co’s gloriously upbeat bed linen. Designed by three Melbourne girls, Alex, Kate & Hayley, the nature inspired threads – don’t you just love the colours of the Confetti Toucan design seen below? – are the best looking thing to hit beds this season (apart from you of course!). And for a bit of (sub)lime, a hard wearing multi-use indoor/outdoor rug made from recycled plastic is a must have jewel for the floor. Oh yes, it looks like and feels like summer’s finally coming home.
