Lorna Syson – Put A Bird On It!

I heard about Lorna Syson during the same time last summer but I was too pregnant and too sick with pregnancy illness to pay any attention to her lovely email. Such a shame. Thankflly, she’d not given up on me and was in contact again just recently to announce a few new additions to her homewares collection.


I think the little birds are so darling and I like the bold color blocking on pillows and lampshades too. With wallpaper, pillows, lampshades, fabrics, cards and prints, there is a little something for everyone. Have a look…


And do you remember when everyone online was saying, “Put a bird on it”, because of that episode on Portlandia? I think it’s so true, you can put a bird on something and it’s an instant winner and I don’t mean that in a negative way – it’s so true. Just today, my Bramley Tote diaper bag from Pink Lining arrived that I bought online recently, and I squeeeeealed with delight. Why? It has owls ALL OVER IT. See what I mean (here)?

So yeah, these Lorna homegoods make me happy, too. Birds! Weeee!

    Wow! For a second I thought it was one of my designs up there on a lampshade! Striking resemblance to my “Bullfinches” fabric here:

    Silly coincidence? :)

    I really love these designs, they are stunning. Like you said they work well with colour blocking. I love the wallpaper in the second to last last pic, it has such subtle colours and fabulous detail that then allows the wooden sideboard to really stand out but without taking over from the wall design.
