Flamingo Fancy

Funny how things pop out at you simultaneously, I was reading the new Rue and my friend Cristin from Simplified Bee is featured, her daughter’s room is delightful with its fab flamingo wallpaper, then I was browsing Kate Spade and the flamingo is all over her merchandise. That pink bird is popping up everywhere!

The pink flamingo lawn ornament has enjoyed a history of kitsch, going from trendy to tacky then back again, now people with great taste position pink flamingos around their yards as a symbol of good times, pink flamingos are also trending in fashion and décor. I think they’re especially fun at a party in summer, don’t you? You can buy a pair for your yard, here’s a roundup of additional finds in his popular motif so you too can get your flamingo on.
