Participating in a Trend
If Anthropologie and J Crew are good barometers, peacocks (both the creature and the blue-green hues) are still a strong presence this fall. When a motif you truly like happens to be "in," and you want to incorporate it into your home, vintage finds can be a great way to do this without worrying about collecting objects that will look "over" by the next season.
Sometimes functional pieces like this brass dish engraved with a subtle peacock (I know that's a bit of an oxymoron) work especially well. Just a tip if you're hitting the flea markets this weekend. Be sure to always ask your grandmother about anything she might have stashed in the attic too.
