While the "official" colors of any given year—you know the ones declared by all the major paint manufacturers—vacillate between bold and vibrant hues with names like "Chinese Porcelain" or "Illuminating," we believe trusty perennial hues are your mainstays for good reason: they always work.

We have tips on how to use with vibrant colors, tropical shades, and a guide solely for lavender, but a favorite hue at Nest Casa is peach. Here, a deep dive into what makes this shade so special and versatile. 

What Color Is Peach?

Much like the color orange, which takes its name from the fruit of the same shade, the color peach borrows its handle from the juicy food. However, the fruit’s appearance can sometimes be deceiving as there are shades of red, orange, yellow, and even pale pink on its skin. Rather than dissect its many parts, it’s better to envision the color peach with its heavenly mix of orange and pink hues found in the meat. A white peach would produce a softer pastel, while the yellow peach would have a touch of electric orange.

A Peach Palette and Its Complements

Peach palettes can vary as much as the fruit itself. A range of peach colors can mimic a pink scale, starting in a barely-there tone and gradating to a medium yet soft shade resembling Provençal rosé wine. Taking cues from the yellow peach gives a vibrant scale of peaches that start coral-like, scaling to almost yellow. In the makeup world, a peach palette encompasses several light, neutral makeup shades popular in procuts like lipstick.

The color peach pairs well with a lot of tones. A classic earth tone–inspired color combo is achieved when pairing it with different browns. Almost any shade can work, specifically warm tones such as chocolate. Teal and peach are also a classic combo, especially when the blue-green hue arrives in a soft, light shade. A bit more unexpected are violets with fuchsia tones and pistachio or mint greens.

How to Decorate Using Peach

If you find peach pleasing enough to splash across your home, there is a good reason for that. Studies by psychologists suggest that peach evokes a sense of comfort and warmth. It also brings forth sensations of youthful joy and acceptance.

For that reason, decorating with peach can be a pleasurable undertaking and yield a satisfying result. One approach is to layer the hues of a peach palette, one after the other. This creates a monochromatic, neutral room that is less austere than it would be in a shade like white—as well as more cheerful than it would be in almond colors.

Walls are an excellent way to envelop a room in the shade while leaving options for easy color scheme changes. The hue acts as a neutral. Pairing peach with wood-grain architectural details such as flooring, ceiling beams, and cabinetry is another surefire design duo. To add to its bright essence, combining peach with gold-toned metallic or gilded finishes is another way to maximize this color in interior design.
