This article will make you appreciate the interior design profession like never...
Mood boarders and Pinterest junkies by heart, we love scouting trends and talking color with you here on the blog and on Instagram, and today we have a pleasure of announcing yet another fascinating design craze in the making.
The past two years were all about Millennial Pink, and we’ve seen such brilliant design solutions giving tribute to this unbelievably eye-catching yet highly versatile shade. Even the hardcore haters of pink had to think twice about how they feel about Millennial Pink, as designers truly took an extra mile in breaking all the stereotypes built around this color. Against all the odds and expectations, Millennial Pink reigned supreme for a long time and it is still very much out there being loved and played with by many.
Well, even though pastels are huge these days, you’ve probably noticed a general shift towards more mature and sophisticated color palettes. The 70’s vibe is omnipresent and influences everything from furniture to fashion. Colors included!
Millennial Pink is not being replaced by yet another trendy color of the moment. It is growing up! And the Peach is its next development phase. Even though they both share a hint of orange in their presence, Peach embraces its punchiness and puts it on the forefront. It is not as delicate and flashy as Millennial Pink, and can be much more vibrant and powerful than pink could ever be.
We talked about Living Coral (Pantone color of the year 2019) on the blog recently, and you will notice a strong resemblance between Peach and Living Coral. They look very much alike, only Peach is more orange and not so “all over your face”. Unlike Living Coral, you won’t find any hints of neon in it, so it will be much easier to work the shade into your interior design projects.
Peach smells like late Spring or early Summer. It can be very adolescent and romantic. A sort of a kiss on the cheek, or a warm hug. It suggests a rebellion and life, but not in a destructive way, but rather curious and utopian. It is sexy. It is ethereal. It is fun. It is the new Millennial Pink!
When it comes to mixing and matching, Peach is so peachy (sorry for the cheese line guys, but I couldn’t help myself). You can pair it with greys and whites (like we did in this inspiration board) or with yellows, greens, blush, red, dusty blue, teal or beige.
When it comes to metals, your best bets are gold and brass (super trendy at the moment) as they pop so elegantly when placed next to Peach.
Under right circumstances, Peach can be used as both accent color or neutral. It is a sort of an attention hog, so you will want to tone it down just a bit. Gold and brass can help with this, but so can wood and natural textiles.
Let us know what you think about this color trend. Is it your cup of tea and do you see it becoming huge in the months to come?
Ending up with some peachy interiors that caught our eye!
