Just Peachy!

Peach is one of those colors where, upon walking into a home and seeing it on the walls, the first thought often is that has to go! It tends to feel dated and bland, but you should never be quick to judge a color based on its past use in design.

Here are some of my favorite uses of peach in interior design and fashion today. Hopefully your mind will open up to the possibility of using a typically misused color in your next project!

Elie Saab wow!

For many people, it’s tough to pull off peach clothing as it tends to give that “naked” effect. However, this gorgeous Elie Saab dress pairs peach with gold accents and a beautifully detailed top and eliminates the skin color problem.

I could bathe here. Very subtle peach color with subway tile

Can’t you just picture yourself bathing here with a good book? Wonderful use of a very subtle peach color with subway tile.

Peach and plum, a beautiful combination. I suppose if the names of the colors are also fruits that taste delicious, the colors together are also yummy!

The wall covering in this room is a muted peach grasscloth. Detailed with peach fabric window treatments and nature inspired pillows, all can I say is WOW!

Peach and gold together is such an elegant combination.

Welcoming natural elements

Using peach the right way can create a very natural and welcoming environment.

Stunning Nursery!

Such a stunning nursery! I love the use of peach instead of a hard pink for a baby girl’s room. Very elegant and calming.

So, what would you say if you saw these uses of peach? Love it, or it has to go?

  1. I completely agree. There are always cases where it has to go. Haha. But when used correctly it can be cheerful and warmer than say white. Love your photo choices. I would be happy in any of those peach spaces.
