Anyone browsing through our collection of eclectic home accessories can tell that at Pompom and Twiddle we are quite partial to quirky home decor. You may also have noticed that we have a bit of a penchant for birds. No, we aren’t out there with our binoculars at weekends, but do appreciate the beauty of our feathered friends, including when it comes to home decor.
Now, wouldn’t you just love to be greeted by a pink-crested crane every morning? We have a paper mache crane in our hallway. He adds personality and humour to the space and brings a smile to visitors' faces. Admittedly some people shoot him a sideways glance, but most remark on our crane with affection.

When it comes to bird decor, there is a fair bit of twee out there. You need to look for quirky home decor that draws upon the beauty of birds - the spectacular colours, their feathers, the amazing shapes. Look for unusual pieces and designs that are inspired by birds, but that stand out from the crowd.
These paper mache swan mounts are enchanting. Each swan is handmade, with feather detailing on the wings, crafted out of white tissue paper, and serene painted faces. The swans are individual works of art that look magical gazing down from a wall.

We’re certainly not the only ones with a penchant for quirky bird decor. Fashion designer Matthew Williamson seems to be a big fan too. Take a look at his sumptuous Bird of Paradise and Menagerie collections for Osborne & Little. There’s another called Sunbird. They are all Divine!

If you don’t feel you can go all out with bird wallpaper, bird wall decor, prints, cushions, lampshades or accessories will make your home sing.
Should you require something tropical, these colourful bird decorations will brighten up a dull corner and bring some birdie joy to your home.
For the slightly eccentric amongst us, how about a paper mache parrot gracing your walls? Perfect for the library perhaps? Or at least next to your book shelves – he just looks so knowledgeable.
Bird decor is great for adding a touch of quirkiness to your home. No need to worry about whether birds are on trend. Bird decor, done with taste and panache, will stand the test of time.
