Getting Peacock Perfect, a beautiful interiors look

Peacock in Interior designThere’s no getting away from all things proudly peacock at the moment, the vibrant, iridescent jewel-like colours of one of nature’s biggest show-offs. Blue, green & bronze tones are shimmering everywhere, from the feathers captured Christmas decorations I picked up in Anthropologie last week and amazing peacock chair by UUfie above, to the beautiful peacock artwork I bought & had framed in deep navy & gold over 18 months ago in anticipation of a friend’s 40th. Finally gave it her last month and, thank goodness, she loved it 🙂

I thought I’d blog some of the things I’ve spotted this year which feature this beautiful interiors trend.

Christmas is just a round the corner and as well as tree decorations, how do you fancy a feathered peacock wreath, eye popping luxury candles, jewelled tea light holders or your very own snowy model?

Cushions are an inexpensive way of nailing an interiors trend, the one on the bottom right is currently sitting in my office 🙂

What could be more glamorous than snuggling down in beautiful bedding?

I saw both these white sets on Ebay and the peacock blue room was on InteriorMall.comp

Back in 2011 when we filmed Half Built House for the tellybox, I specified a rather fabulous peacock wallpaper on a taupe background for the dining room area and it looked totally amazing  . Still adore it!

Fabric is also an inexpensive way to update your look, I think peacock feather work brilliantly on Roman or roller blinds like the ones which we did in this home office with it’s vibrant green stripe around the walls.

Peacock chairs come in all shapes and sizes, from elaborate rattan numbers in vibrant colours, through upholstered fabrics to cutting edge contemporary designs.

If money’s no object then the Koket Camilia cabinet is a must have – how amazingly intricate is this *dreams of a lottery win*…….. Much more likely is an upcycling project like the clever feather design on a painted table – love this idea!

I’m sure you’ve already seen the gorgeous Rug Company Matthew Williamson stair runner, dreamt of by many an interiors blogger, but I couldn’t very well leave it out could I?!

And finally a few little bits & bobs. Who knew your landline & mobile now come in plumage hues?! What with that, and the chance to buy your very own bird at NOTHS, there’s now absolutely no excuse not to have a peacock in your life x
