A Feathered Nest

During winter, we all want to sink deep into a cosy nest and what better way to feather yours than literally with feathers? From the pattern of feathers in a cosy throw to their inclusion in a wall hanging, the natural, soft and textural effect that feathers can provide to your space will feel just right this winter.

From wall art to wall coverings, there is an abundance of options for your space featuring the natural variation in colour and light-reflecting sheen that comes with layering feathers en masse.

Experiment with various representations of feathers to add a boho-chic edge to your rooms. From multi-coloured designs to line art representations, feather motifs can feel fun and lively. The colours and patterns of feathers in a space can also make a big impact if applied to large areas. Think about a feather wallcovering or peacock feather-patterned rug for a big statement.
