It’s Spring and the perfect time to jazz up your space with feathers! We love showcasing our favorite DIY feather projects like this amazing Pre-teen bedroom makeover by Candice Cowin of Texas Brocante Antiques & Interiors.
“About a year or so ago, I noticed that my eldest child wasn’t a little girl anymore. It was a great excuse to change things up in her bedroom. You know, to reflect her maturing tastes & needs” @texasbrocante
Using 5 Yards of our Metallic Rooster Coque Tail Fringe in Mauve; Cowin transformed her daughters “boring swing arm lamps” and jazzed them up with a bit of hot glue and some dyed feather trim from The Feather Place Los Angeles. This is definitely a bedroom makeover any pre-teen would love to have and one that she can grow into over the years! Take a look below! Don’t you love it!
With just these simple steps, you can DIY your own Feathered lamp shades and revamp your space from drab to fab!

Hat’s off to Hedda Hopper ! Having recently watched FX Networks FEUD where scene after scene, Judy Davis’s character dons the most beauty feather hat, I was inspired to know more about the real Hedda Hopper and all of her hats!
“Judy Davis’ Hedda Hopper wears a succession of fantastic hats in “Feud,” which make for the most notable TV chapeaus of the year…
“Jack McConnell was a major milliner [of the era,] so we used a lot of his hats,” Eyrich says. “A bunch of our hats we got from a store here in Los Angeles called The Way We Wore. They have an amazing hat room that I had so much fun digging through.”
Murphy wanted hats with movement, so Eyrich added long, iridescent black feathers to one cap-like white hat. Another hat looks like an alien ship had landed on the wearer’s head.” – Variety
Mesmerized by the plethora of feather hats Davis wore, we found these amazing images of the original gossip girl and Hollywood royalty ! Boy did she love to wear off the top feather hats! Ostrich Feather, Rooster Feather, She wore it and said it all! Here are a few of our favorites! We hope you find some inspiration, especially with the Kentucky Derby around the corner!

First of all, these Roger Vivier Feather Shoes and Accessories are to die for! We absolutely love the Burnt Ostrich Feathers paired with sparkling rhinestone details. The Champagne and Pearl Grey shoes and clutch are perfect for Spring and Summer soirée’s, while the classic Black pair are perfect for Fall and Winter balls.
FEATHER SWIRL | Roger Vivier’s version of magic. Like a whirlwind of feathers dancing around the Buckle, a precious jewel adorns a pair of sandals, mules and Papillon de Nuit closed-back heels. Its tender shades – Première fois pink and pearl grey – caress the skin. This sensuality is taken to excess in a V-shape on the thigh-high boots, the quintessence of the House’s extravagant spirit. – Roger Vivier
