Fabulous Flamingo Wallpaper

The title of Florida State Bird might officially belong to the mockingbird, but the flamingo holds that honor in popular opinion. To many, the pink flamingo is to Florida what the pineapple is to Hawaii.

Recently, I blogged about the incredibly talented Maria Barros and her fabulous flamingo wallpaper. Since then, flamingos seem to be popping up everywhere! Last week, Beth at Chinoiserie Chic even declared them the “next big thing,” and I couldn’t agree more!

“Miami Addiction” by Maria Barros – Available in 21 colorways, and also in fabric.
The first time my husband brought me to South Florida to meet his family (we were dating at the time), I was in a state of awe. While this true-blooded Texan would delightedly move back to Dallas in a heartbeat if we could, Dallas honestly cannot hold a candle to the beauty of South Florida. The palm trees are magnificent, the grass is perpetually green, and we have the most beautiful pink sunsets you have ever seen. You will see peacocks fanning their feathers in Coconut Grove, a Miami neighborhood adjacent to Coral Gables, and we’ve even had feral Macaws visit us in our backyard.  But one thing is missing…. “Where are the flamingos?” I asked my husband… his reply, “Uhhh… at the zoo?” Naturally, I believed that flamingos would running wild in Florida… and I was sadly mistaken. But I can still bring them inside the home!! 

Yesterday, when Junell at Seeker’s Bazaar posted pics of her exquisite “Mistress Bath” covered in Cole & Son “Flamingos” my heart went aflutter. I absolutely LOVE this bathroom!!

Cole & Son “Flamingos” – available in eight colorways.
I am starting to think we should have purchased a larger house… All of my walls are spoken for!! Hmmm… maybe I could sneak some flamingo wallpaper into my closet?
