Peacock inspiration

The other day I did a post about finding inspiration for designing/decorating one's home from the great outdoors. Recently, I was at the Bronx Zoo and this gorgeous peacock caught my attention.
After snapping photos of him for ten minutes I immediately thought of napkin rings I had seen. How fabulous would either of these two napkin rings be for a dinner party...very striking! http://www.zgallerie.com/pc-8531-31-sitting-peacock-napkin-rings-set-of-4.aspx
Are you looking for furnishings and accessories for the home...check out Zgallerie's website...http://www.zgallerie.com/. Inspiration for designing a home or pulling together a chic dinner party is all around us!

Those photos are so beautiful. Please know this isn't a shameless plug, but those napkin rings and my Mardi Gras II painting would look fab together! Love it! BTW - the peacock colors are hot right now!

Peacocks are one of God's many wonderous creations. The colors are unbeliveable. Gorgeous photos. I told a friend about the napkin rings at Zgallerie, she loves peacocks. I love that store. So many fun items and great prices. Thanks for sharing your trip to the zoo. I love Mr. Peacock!! Kathysue

No bird is more colorful than the peacock and those napking rings are beyond...

Lisa, this is delightful & whimsical. You must get these. A few years ago we were doing a photo shoot with my jewelry, my son shooting...one of the marketing people suggested we "hang" jewelry off live peacocks...great thought, except how on Earth would one get them to stay still. My son put an end to that at once. LOL.

Love your idea of using things for nature to inspire you, and whats better than peacocks!

Kathleen said...

Oh those napkin rings are very fancy! I don't think I can afford them! I did have a guinea hen in my yard last week, maybe one of Christie Brinkley's flew the coop? I could look for feathers and make some, LOL! Now that would be a conversation piece!
Thanks for visiting..It was just gorgeous here today!

Lisa what a gorgeous idea... perfect for a dinner party. I love peacocks and we have once had one or two in our garden who wander down from the Botanic Gardens. They are such regal creatures and the colours are stunning.

Hi Lisa, great pictures! Those peacocks cat Bronx can get pretty aggressive, we had a scary time once standing between one of these and the intended female! Anyway, I still love them and love my new peacock print top from Target (Liberty!).

I'm glad all of you enjoyed the peacock as much as I did!I love hearing what you have to say!

i have never seen a peacock fanning it's feathers in real life, your pictures are the closest i've come and IT'S AMAZING. WOW. SERIOUSLY! I remember growing up, in the 1970s and my neighbor across the street her mom had a vase in the corner full of peacock feathers. You know when you're about 10 you look at that and go "why would you put feathers in a vase and not flowers?" but now i know that she was stylish!

I've always really liked peacock feathers, because I love deep, jewel tones in decor! Great inspiration, and I hope you enjoyed your day at the zoo (I love that zoo!).
