Tasteful Dining Room Decorating with Peacock Art

Pistachio Peacock Shows Great Taste in Dining Room
by Miriam Schulman, @schulmanArt

Decorating Idea with Peacock Decor
The mantel is a great place to showcase vertical pieces of art. The height draws your eye up making the ceilings higher and grander and also allows you to display sculpture or vases on the mantel. Discover how great a dramatic peacock painting can brighten the whole room with modern colors like bright chartreuse green. Mirrors are not art and every room needs art. In the room view pictured left decorated by David Kleinberg Design Associates, a breakfast room extends from a modern kitchen. The amber chandelier echos the color of the maple chairs and is offset wonderfully by the bold contrasts of the black table and white walls. However, we thought the room needed a little tweaking. The mirror in the original photo has been digitally replaced with a piece of artwork. The colors in the room are fantastic and the artwork makes the whole room. Before, the mirror placed between two windows created a spatial void.
