Shopping for bedding for my still unfinished guest room has me thinking about patterns. Specifically, bird patterns. And about how much I've always wanted them on my bed.

In real life, I'm a bit of an anti-avian. Live birds -- with their sharp beaks and beady eyes -- sort of freak me out. But as a decor motif, the bird thing works for me. Only, I fear I may have jumped on the bandwagon too late.

I went to eight different stores in a recent bedding hunt. Did I find anything I liked? Well, sorta. I saw some birds. But twin duvet covers were incredibly hard to find in general. (So annoying. After the fifth store, I started to get pretty frustrated.) Regardless, I couldn't commit (even if twins had been available.) I fear the bird renaissance may already be on the way out again. It's so hard to say. I think I'm going to go with plain white and inject pattern via top sheets or something. 

Nonetheless, for your viewing pleasure today, here are some birdy bedding designs:
