Styling Pantone’s Colour of the Year
If we’re honest, the colour peach hasn’t necessarily been on our radar as of late. With that said, we are pleasantly surprised with Pantone’s Peach Fuzz as it provides a middle ground between loud and laidback. Peach (and its various shades) are quite versatile when integrating them into the home. Peach can be used as a focal point or subtle inclusion to any given space.
- For the bedroom, we recommend these gorgeous linen sheets from Cultiver. Though slightly lighter in shade, this peachy pink sheet set evokes a comfortable level of warmth and elegance to that of a French countryside retreat.
- For the bathroom, we suggest brightening up your space with this peach floral printed shower curtain from Crane & Canopy. The slight hint of guava tones gives a tropical vibe that immediately hits us with a spark of serotonin.
- For the living room, these gorgeous Pantone-approved rugs from Ruggable would be the perfect foundation for an eye-catching room. Each rugs’ geometric design feels modern without being cold and unapproachable. If you’re weary on making your entire space peach, opt for these understated rugs instead.
- For everything else, we typically opt for something subtle when we’re having a hard time choosing larger decor pieces. This Nordic-inspired peach-coloured wall art from Etsy is the perfect addition to any room without making too bold of a statement.
