Color Crush: Sweet Peach

Recently a dear friend of mine came to me with some ideas for a baby girl nursery, hoping we could brainstorm on color. “Something with no pink. Or very little pink,” she said. So I thought about the colors she tends to go for, not pink, and girl. And I thought: peach!

Now peach has gone really wrong in the recent past, right? (read: 80s peach and blue floral, yack). But it’s coming back around a little bit, and boy is it pretty when done right. Apartment Therapy had a 2012 spotlight on peach that, ahem, per the comments just didn’t go over very well.

But I don’t care. I’m calling it.

Peach is a perfect option when you get sick of pink. And pink can get worn out really quick when you start shopping for anything baby girl. When done in a delicate, soft shade, it can be a great accent color as well as a main player.

I am loving peach, and I’m not afraid to say it! I’m excited to see where my friend’s little nursery ends up… hopefully I’ll be able to share what she does when it’s complete!

Happy Thursday! Come around tomorrow for another peek at our little cottage-in-progress, with the kids’ hallway!  I need ideas for the walls.
