What's It Wednesday #118
While decorating our home, I ran into a slight gender dilemma. There are two males in the house. What was a girl to do?
Then I remembered that animals tend to add a nice male touch. Then I came up with the perfect masculine touch. I will add Peacocks to the decor. I mean they are male animals of course. I couldn't very well put a bunch of peahens around the house. Besides, peacocks run around wild where we live.
It was only right that I represent the men in our home. So I found the cutest bejeweled peacock at Pier 1. While there my son eyed a few peacock pillows for the family room.
My son has become a master at discovering great finds. He eyed this painting at the Home Goods. Not bad for a six year old.
I felt I still needed more males in the house. This metal peacock is prominently placed on the side of a kitchen cabinet. He adds texture and interest to the kitchen.
I didn't want the house overly masculine you know, but when my son spotted these two gentlemen at Kirklands, well I couldn't very well leave them there. Besides they were on clearance.
A matching pillow to the one on the desk chair on the couch and an accent pillow was just what was needed to liven up the family room.
Now my hubby has his favorite place on the family room couch. He really enjoys all the "masculine" touches. Don't you agree that adding male representation in your decor also adds elegance? Well that's my excuse/story and I am sticking to it. ;-)
