Swans are a thing now, but they still feel fresh to me. Their black and white plumage and sculptural shape play nicely with modern interiors, but they have a great Victorian quality to them as well. Plus swans are total bitches – nasty birds, really – so there’s something kind of intimidating which makes me want to plaster them all over the walls of my non-existent powder room.

I just added these little cuties to the shop today. They’re made of celluloid which was big in the 1920’s. vintage celluloid swan raised by designvintage celluloid swan raised by design

I love some of the swan trends I’m seeing out and around…

Rifle Paper Co. never lets us down – I’m really into the black background of this print – it’s moody but still playful so would work for kiddos and grownups alike! Super Duper!
Perfecto! A collection of swan planters with a granny flower painting.
Nina Campbell’s Swan Lake wallpaper and fabric are pretty feminine looking in this photo, but could be bad ass with some more masculine pieces.
Of course. Swan floaties at a wedding.

Completely smitten with the swan head (and everything) in the nursery over at Paul & Paula. Aye!
Black beauties for your console styling pleasure.

Another awesome kids’ room – could work for a boy or girl. Could just throw some swans over the end of your big girl bed. 

Are you planning a swan theme for your babe’s room? Or a chic powder or dressing room?
