Peacockery

I love the way that French design trio Atelier LZC - one of our very favourite suppliers - continually re-invent their offering, while remaining very much true to their original aesthetic. 

Though they still produce the silhouetted, naturalistic birds, flowers and butterflies that made them famous, in recent seasons their work has become more stylised and naif, using charming folksy images such a matrioschka dolls, eggs and for this season, peacocks. 

We've just added these little hanging objects to the mirrormirror site and there's something about the earnest expressions on their faces, which I find particularly adorable.

I photographed them hanging on the twisted willow branches left over from my Easter tree and they look so good I don't want to take them down.

Peacocks are obviously in the zeitgeist too as Maryam in Morocco and Tara on Vancouver Island have both just written great peacock-y posts.
