Peacock themed decor anyone?

I love peacock colors, so I decided to redo my living room with a peacock theme. My wedding was also peacock themed, and so is my Christmas tree collection I got from Michaels craft store.... yea I really love peacocks. I'm attracted to those colors. As a photographer colors really impact me. What I have so far is a dark brown leather sectional and a entertainment center that is an espresso color I got from IKEA. below are actual photos of these things:
I have this entertainment center I got from Ikea. Except no TV in the middle so there is a huge blank space there and I have no idea what to put in there. Right now all the cubes are filled with books, DVDs, and games.
This is the sectional I will be getting in like 2 months from Ashley Furniture. I just placed it in layaway.

So what I ask is that if anyone finds some really cool peacock themed items that I could use for my living room let me know. You can even design a living room for me. I would love the color palate to be teal, greens, and brown. When it is all finished I will post a photo and mention who gave me the idea.



*The furniture photos shown are not mine, I got them from the Ikea and Ashley Furniture websites. I do not claim them as my own.*

  2. It was not expensive either, maybe $200ish at IKEA (I do not quite remember I got it 2 years ago). Make sure you have help putting it together though.

  6. Looking forward to seeing the pics, i think a peacock theme would naturally have a 60/70's tone to it.

  7. Justin's right.
    But IKEA is probably the only swedish thing I'm proud of.

  8. You should get a TV for the middle of the entertainment center. If not maybe a painting?
