The colors that are found on a peacock can actually be quite inspiring when it comes to home décor. The color palette of a peacock themed décor will generally consist of bright hues of green, blue, golden ambers, and different shades of brown. The colors of a peacock’s tail are constantly shifting, depending upon how you look at it. This leaves the color palette open to some amount of interpretation. The room you are decorating can be full of bright jewel tones or a more sedate room with muted shades of color.

For starters, you can begin to decorate a room in a peacock themed décor by creating two toned walls. Ideally, the bottom of the wall should feature the brighter color of the two, with the top half of the wall featuring a more neutral color, like a burnt amber. A two toned look for your walls does not have to be achieved solely through the use of paint. You may use any combination of fabric, paint, or wallpaper to create the effect you are looking for.
For window treatments, look for fabrics that features shades of chocolate brown or bright jewel tones of green or navy blue. If you would like to have a more literal interpretation of the colors in a peacock’s tail, try hanging panels of alternating colors. Similar shades of color can be used for upholstering furniture in rich fabrics, like silk or satin. For a more subdued look, you can use upholstery in shades of chocolate brown with the addition of throw pillows in jewel tones.
When it comes to choosing furniture for peacock inspired home décor, look for pieces that are constructed from dark woods, like mahogany or ebony. The dark tones of these woods will contrast well with the brighter jewels tones of the upholstery and accessories. An alternative to wooden furniture is to look for pieces that are crafted from chocolate brown leather.
Finally, when it comes to accessories for peacock themed décor, a white vase filled with peacock feathers is a must. Ideally, it should be placed in a spot where the feathers can reflect the incoming natural light. Instead of looking for artistic prints that feature literal interpretations of the peacock, look for abstract pieces of art that feature the colors of the peacock. For lighting, you can opt to use stained glass lampshades in hues of blue, green, and amber.
