Colour Files: Peach, Grey and Turquoise

08.08.13

Hello! Back today with some pretty colour inspiration for you as part of my ‘Colour Files‘ column. This time, I am crushing on a summery combo of peach, grey and turquoise. It started when I spotted the below image by the interior design duo behind Jersey Ice Cream Co. Fresh and feminine, it’s had me all sorts of excited about a little project I will be starting in the not too distant future: redecorating Lola’s bedroom!

I was instantly drawn to the sweet shades of peachy pink and soft grey with touches of turquoise and even cobalt blue when I clapped eyes on that darling row of ribbons. Pretty but not too girly, it’s the perfect palette for a little girl’s bedroom. We’ve been considering getting her a bigger bed now that she’s two, and of course that idea sparked a never-ending rabbit hole search this week for ideas and inspiration. I just love the bedroom above, which incorporates the same pretty palette.

Not limited to the room of a toddler, however, these pretty pastel hues would also perk up any living room too. Paired with grey, they give the whole palette a neutral quality. A few accessories, artworks or fresh flowers would be enough to add a fresh summery scheme to a lacklustre space, like the gorgeous watercolour artworks by Leslie Schewring for her ‘Color Me Pretty‘ column on Decor8. L.O.V.E!

In the gorgeous living room above, a bold tufted turquoise sofa is offset by a pretty patterned sofa in grey and peach. In a neutral setting, the colours bounce off the walls and the room has just the right amount of pretty without being overwhelmingly feminine.

Do you love these colours too? Would you change anything about this combo at all?

Can’t wait to get started on Lola’s big girl bedroom now! Was recently given an old wooden cabinet which I plan to update for her bedroom. Me thinks it needs a lick of mint green paint and some pretty peach handles… more on that later!
