I found a cute quote that makes me think of how we sometimes don’t notice how spectacular we are. Even the peacock has his doubts… “People are crying up the rich and variegated plumage of the peacock, and he is himself blushing at the sight of his ugly feet.” – Sa’Di

When the wind has been knocked out of your sails, reflect upon the proud peacock strutting his stuff, shaking his lush plumage almost saying, “I’m beautiful, baby!”. The peacock is a symbol of pride and strength, and also one of great beauty. Having a peacock in your home is a positive reminder of how important it is to believe in yourself and to always strut your stuff because if you don’t believe in yourself, who will?
Here are some pillows to get you started in, what could be, a peacock obsession.
I’ve always been attracted to these lovely creatures, which started when I was 4 years old and my mother hired Cyndi, a radiant italian interior designer that installed a huge blue-green vase with the watchful eyes of peacock plumage shooting forth from it in our living room. I remember how it reflected in our gold wallpaper, my cat watching the plumage with a suspicious eye, careful not to go to close.
Lately, I’ve been spotting more and more peacock in patterns, from decoupage trays to fabric, rubber stamps, clothing, earrings, or images of them on pillows. Yesterday, when Domino magazine arrived, I found even more, so I thought it made sense to showcase my favorite peacock accessories for the home here today. I think that first, so we can all better appreciate the peacock, we should read up about these regal creatures; so click here!
