COLOR SPOTLIGHT – Peach

There are certain colours that just GLOW.  Somewhere between orange and pink, a room painted in a shade of peach will feel cheerful even on a rainy day.  On sunny afternoons you won’t be able to keep the smile off your face!

Peaches can be complimented with both warm and cool tones.  Add furniture in warm woods like mahogany and touches of metallic gold or copper for traditional space.  If you prefer a modern home, balance peach with cool grey accessories, deep navy accents, white woodwork and clean sharp lines.  It even goes great with violet!

For nurseries, peach is a sweet alternative to pink.  In a small bath, touches of peach against white tiles will make a cramped space feel larger and brighter.  If you prefer a light colour in the bedroom, pair light peach walls with billowy white curtains and crisp linens.

Some of my favourite shades?

TIP:  Save peach for the inside of your home. It’s very pretty but it will fade quickly when exposed to strong sunlight on outside walls.
