In years past, the flamingo seemed to be the bird of choice for those who wanted to enhance their garden or yard with a replica of a shore bird; however that trend seems to have changed to engulf another shore bird of the present.
The Pelican seems to be the new Flamingo, particularly when it comes to home decor.
Pelican home decor is the wave of the present and pelicans are popping up everywhere, from your neighbors fencing to your own bathroom.
Some of the pelicans are quite natural in appearance while others are done in post modern style and still others are contrived of brass, hand blown glass or some other metallic material.
Pelican home decor is not just for the outside either. Cottages boasting entire rooms done in the style of the shore, featuring sand and seashells and a flock of pelicans stenciled on the wall are featured in several of the magazines we’ve seen featuring rustic or outdoor like decorating themes.
The pelican is showing up virtually everywhere. There are lovingly crafted hand made pelican door knockers that will announce your visitors in a whimsical way, while the pelican bird feeder sitting on the porch, or under a tree and holding the bird seed carefully in his mouth will give a touch of the comedic to your small garden nook. Pelican home decor has arrived.
Pelican planters have found their way into the garden or the inside of the house to hold a few herb plants on the window sill, while the pelican shaped carved stepping stool can help your child reach the bathroom sink for his or her nightly tooth brushing task. Pelican home decor has… well; it’s come home to roost if you don’t mind the bad pun.
Another trend in home decorating that seems to have hit a high note with those who are decorating this season is brass. The brass pelican home decor, merely an outline of the shore bird, done in a brass type wire, seen recently on the eBay outlet received a very good outpouring of bids and had the auction stayed open longer, there is little doubt that it would have fetched a far greater price than it did in the end run of this auction.
Bottom line, if you’re looking for something new and different in home decor, something that hasn’t completely arrived yet, and you don’t want to look like the “guy next door” and want to get a jump on the latest trends in decorating, take a look at pelican home decor. You’re probably going to find something that you like enough to take down that year’s old pink flamingo and replace him.
