We used a mirrored owl that Keith bought at a yard sale (I think it came from Target originally) for $3 on our mantel and it added just the right amount of fun and sparkle. It was sort of peeking out from behind a plant.
Of course, owls are everywhere. Its part of the return of 1970s décor when owls were, well, really everywhere.
And it’s not a new trend. I found a 2008 story from The Star Ledger in New Jersey that said owls “have a mysterious sort of beauty that can be both alluring and intimidating.”
I love the West Elm lamp above – shown alone in gunmetal and on a desk in white. It sells for $99.
I knew I’d find some owls at Jonathan Adler, which has some of the coolest animal-related décor items.
Etsy is a cool place to find creative owl décor.
There are handmade items as well as vintage owls from all eras. Look at some of these great options I found:
Top row: Pair of Vintage White Owl Book Ends, IndyScavenger on Etsy, $40; Owl Family Iron Trivets Set of Five Vintage, backofbeyond on Etsy, $15; and Vintage Owl Umbrella Stand, lovintagefinds on Etsy, $49.
Bottom row: The Olivia - Cotton and Burlap Pillow Slip, JolieMarche on Etsy, $35; Vintage Ceramic Owl candle holder, ifonlyshehadboughtit on Etsy, $14; Owls Fabric Wallpaper – Green, trendypeasdecals on Etsy, $99.
I didn’t even include all the stuff I found. There were kitchen towels, wall art and – of course – lots of great nursery items.
I’ve also noticed that Pier 1 is full of owl décor right now, including this Owl Hanging Tea Light Lantern for $30.
Finally, here’s a collection of a few more owl products. I just couldn’t resist including them:
So did I overwhelm you with owls? Or are you ready to run out to get your own?
