runway to color palette: peach is for you

Written on October 22, 2012 at 4:00 am , by

When it comes to timeless colors, for me peach seems to always be on my list.  Contrary to popular belief, pale peach can be paired with just about any color.  Some of my favorite combos are pale peach paired with red, pale peach paired with navy and pale peach paired with black.  See, I told you it works!  Another great thing about pale peach (even pale pink) is that it’s not just a summer or spring color.  I’ve used peach in my holiday decor before and it was spectacular.  Playing off this gorgeous street style ensemble, let me show you how to work peach in your space in a very classy but trendy way.  Here’s the look:

Color Inspiration: T-shirt.
On the walls:  Go white and let everything around you pop.  Ice Cube (SW 6252) is a nice bright white.  If you want a dramatic accent wall, go black using Tricorn Black (SW 6258).

Color Inspiration:  Skirt.
Use Blushing (SW 6617) in fabrics, graphic wallpaper, ceramics and even accent chairs.

Color Inspiration: Belt.
For upholstered pieces and leather pieces, Eastlake Gold (SW 0009) is timeless but very modern.

Color Inspiration:  Bonus.
Use Kale Green (SW 6460) sparingly throughout your space through accessories.  And for a little deeper peach, Cosmetic Peach (SW 6618) is breathtaking!  Use this inside shelves or cut-outs.
