French-Inspired White Bird Cage for Spring

Friday, March 20, 2020

A French-inspired white wire bird cage has landed on the white shelves in the kitchen sunspace for a fresh look this spring. Previously, the white bird cage sat on a table at the end of the sofa in the living room.

Why this bird cage and the two myrtle topiaries? 
  
As always, I look for ways to bring more French design into my country house. If you also love adding French Country style or garden style to your house, read on to see how a bird cage and topiaries could bring a fresh look to your house this spring.

To capture the essence of a French garden two myrtle topiaries offer structure and symmetry, two features found in most French gardens. New growth on the topiaries needs to be clipped into closely-shaped balls like boxwoods in French gardens and the preserved boxwood inside the bird cage.

Spring has arrived with torrential rains and warmer weather, prompting the woods to come alive with green leaves. The fresh white paint of the bird cage contrasts beautifully with the green woods in the background and with the natural wood tones in the sunspace.

The shaped blue ceramic pots add more formal French style than standard clay pots. 




French inspired white bird cage with a domed roof and semi-circular openings is similar to French conservatories
French conservatories often include domed roofs and semi-circular windows atop doors. The bird cage has both of those features, French style and garden style, making it a natural choice for incorporating French and garden designs into my house this spring.

Adding a crowned bird with a lace collar gives the bird cage an unexpected element, and provides the vignette more interest than simply a bird cage alone.

  1. As always, so beautifully put together! I love the bird perched on the bird cage. I need to dig out my bird Christmas ornaments. Thanks for the inspiration!

    The bluebonnets are spectacular this year. I'm looking forward to seeing your pictures.

    1. Mary,
      The bottom of my bird cage is hinged and opens up, just like a real bird cage would open for cleaning.
