Of course, I couldn’t talk about orange without moving on to peach, could I?
The color peach came up during a #allthingscolor Tweetchat last week. There was a good debate over the trendiness of peach and whether or not this color would be making a come back. I think pastels are poised for a major comeback (at least that’s what I’ve been hearing from some fellow Benjamin Moore employees after a recent trip to Milan). And if that’s true then the color peach will be coming back around like a revolving door.
Defining peach is difficult – somewhere in between orange and red, peach is a warm, crisp color that will brighten your space and work well with a variety of other hues. Also referred to as salmon, coral, apricot and melon, Peach can range from a vibrant reddish-pink to a soft terra cotta.
Here are some great examples of peach:
peach mousse 1199
A pink-peach hybrid, this youthful and vibrant shade of coral is evocative of cocktails in Palm Beach. Pair with glossy white trim to set an easy resort tone in your bedroom retreat.
jumel peachtone HC-54
This soft, pretty peach with a hint of orange warms up a space and creates an inviting atmosphere in a comfortable bedroom. The image below shows a color similar to jumel peachtone.
intense peach 081
Coral tones make this dining room warm and welcoming. The creamy neutral accent colors complement a multitude of styles, from country to contemporary. The image below shows a color similar to intense peach.
I’m convinced that this spring, peach will make a grand re-appearance but this time we’ll call it Bellini!
Vote: Should peach come back? Yes or No!
ps. did you know that Benjamin Moore has 60 shades of peach? I wonder if they’ll soon be 60 shades of Bellini!
