I still think that the fox will be the animal of 2013, but these sweet little birds might just inspire me to put a bird on it one more time. Designed by Jacob Pugh, they are hand carved from solid walnut. It’s the colorful laquered chest that gets me though – in white, green, yellow, blue and, of course, pink.
Available from Gretel Home in sets of five for $219. It’s tricky to find decor items I can put out with little ones around, I’m glad to find another source that fits my aesthetic while accommodating their need to touch and play.
