This 'n That Thursdays: "Portlandia"-Inspired Rooms

I have only recently become aware of the hit comedy series "Portlandia", but like so many others I am now a huge fan of their unique and quirky humor.  Last week a post on the HGTV Design Happens blog mentioned a "Portlandia" segment called "Put a Bird on It" that was so hilarious I practically fell out of my chair laughing!  The same post also provided a link to this outlandishly beautiful Louisa Cockatoo Settee from Anthropologie:

This got me to thinking that it might be amusing to combine the unique and quirky humor of "Portlandia" with the unique and quirky style of Anthropologie.  Here is the result:

For a slightly less bird-obsessed design, check this out:

Is this life imitating art or art imitating life?  I have no idea, but I do know that these style boards were a lot of fun to create and are enjoyable to look at, and there is nothing wrong with that!
