Everyone's decorating style is different.
Mine tends to favor anything old-fashioned, as in Victorian.
When I found the "peacock" fireplace cover folded-up in a thrift shop, my heart skipped a beat.
Unhooking it, it fanned out in rather intricate splendor.
The original post on it, which ran seven years ago, can be seen here.
It's one purchase I have never regretted.
All summer long, it covers the fireplace, adding a bit of old-fashioned charm to the living room.
