{décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock} While preparing our place for a shoot awhile ago, had remarked, in all seriousness, that the pièce de résistance would be a white peacock, just as in Ryan Korban‘s New York apartment.  [Often mistakenly referred to as an albino peacock, it is actually a white peacock, and a genetic variant of the Indian Blue Peafowl.]  Either way, it is elegant and exotic, dramatic and undeniably beautiful . . . {décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock} {décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock} {décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock} {décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock} {décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock} {décor inspiration : the impossibly beautiful white peacock} {p.s.} did you know that, just as snakes shed their skins, every year, “toward the end of summer, peacocks finish shaking their tail feathers, and their stunning plumage gradually falls off. This shedding process, called molting, is a common part of most birds’ lives. Feathers can wear out and lose their functionality over time, and since these feathers aren’t self-regenerating, birds must replace them entirely.” [source: Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology] [images : one // two // three // four // five // six // seven]
