i kind of have a thing for bird cages. i have a small collection of them that sometimes gather together on our buffet, but more often are spread throughout the house. this big one is perfect for the table behind my couch. i love that its big and not a dinky little tchochke, but that it doesn’t take up a ton of visual space since you can see right through it.
during christmas it often has ornaments hanging inside, with a plate of ornaments sitting at the bottom. but beyond that, i have a hard time thinking of ideas for the inside of it.
then i spotted this idea when i was looking through a pottery barn catalogue.
books inside – of course!
i would have to clear out my bookshelves to fill this wide of a birdcage, so i filled a little more of the space with a pretty cake plate and smaller knick-knacks. it is a little more punchy than the pottery barn version, but i think it goes well with the rest of my house.
i’ve had a design lull for a long time when it comes to my house – no motivation to try anything new. at first i thought it was just contentment, which is great. but then i realized that i was just not feeling creative and had no ideas of fun things i could try. but the bug has hit me again in tiny spurts, so i’m doing my best to find little bits of time when i can be creative in my house – so fun!
