Peach, salmon or setting plaster… however you refer to the perfect pinky-orange hybrid, peach is proving a popular choice throughout the world of interior design.
Its underlying blush tones bring peace and softness, while the injection of orange offers warmth and cosiness. Yet peach remains muted enough to be considered a neutral, and therefore a versatile choice for areas throughout the home.
Peach knocks around with the rest of the new neutrals crowd, accompanied by lavender, mint green and rose. Though pale, these muted tones offer an androgyny that makes them much more workable than their saturated predecessors. Peach itself stems from an appealing family of shades, from barely-there nude, to soft apricot, to warm and tangy coral. It demonstrates a natural progression from last year’s favourite Millennial pink. Now, blush shades have received a healthy dose of yellow, which brings positivity, energy and a cool retro flavour. Moving away from blue tints, pinks are becoming more warm and accessible.
Peach is a great entry point for people to start experimenting in their homes. A flexible base colour, this gender neutral shade can be layered with a number of other tones to achieve your desired effect. Working particularly well with modern colour blocking designs, peach is the perfect choice for a feature wall, a statement piece of furniture or a colourful accent against a monochrome backdrop.
The shade also mixes well with the rustier tones in its colour family, such as terracotta and burgundy. This will create an even warmer and more cosy effect. Conversely, pairing with a complementary duck egg creates fun and freshness – a gentle approach to colour contrasts. Are you peachy keen to bring this peaceful and reliable shade into your home?
