Focus On: Peacock Cushions
You may notice many Peacock and Peacock feather styles feature throughout the Hazeldee Home collections. There is a reason for this!
Not only are Peacocks strikingly beautiful to look at, but Peacocks and their feathers are also known to have positive spiritual meanings.
What do Peacocks and Peacock Feathers Mean?
Legend has it that Peacocks hold great symbolic importance. Peacocks and their feathers are said to symbolise new beginnings, growth, wealth, knowledge, positivity, pride and longevity.
Peacocks Symbolise New Beginnings
Peacocks are said to be related to the phoenix which is a mythological bird that is said to die and regenerate (or come back to life) from their ashes and are born again. You might know of the phoenix bird if you’re a Harry Potter fan!
Similar to the phoenix; peacocks shed their feathers annually and regrow a captivating beautiful new plume of feathers that they regally display and show off with great pride and confidence as an indication of their new beginning and enlightenment.
Peacock Colours for the Home
Peacock feathers are said to attract harmony and prosperity to a home. Many cultures use peacock feathers as accessories in the home. So let’s discuss the hues that make the Peacock so beautiful.
The rich blue, green and gold jewel-toned colours that make up the peacock bird along with its tufted crown exudes majesty.
Cobalt blue symbolises richness, strength and confidence. It’s a sophisticated shade made of cobalt and aluminium oxides. It signifies peacefulness, calm and stability; all great symbolisms for a home.
Green symbolises serenity, harmony and balance. It of course is also symbolic of growth and nature and has a feeling of being secure or safe.
Gold denotes abundance, prestige and elegance; it symbolises wealth, optimism and positivity. Gold is precious, gold is illuminating, gold is grounding.
