Signature Color - Peach

Thursday, April 9, 2015

Do you have a signature color? 
A color that everyone in your family, 
and your closest friends
know you love with a passion? 
A color that says your name?

How does someone develop a signature color? 

For some it is an immediate attraction from an early age. 
In childhood their dresses, hair ribbons, and toys are this color. 
Then their wedding china is Fitz and Floyd Renaissance Peach. 

For some they discover their color of choice over the years. 
Perhaps when a paint card suggests a new wall color 
that suddenly becomes the backdrop that complements 
the colors of objects collected over time. 
And, becomes the backdrop for peachy fresh roses. 

Peach and lavender - complements on the color wheel 
Peach and creme - almost monochromatic 
Peach and natural wood tones - shades of the orange family 

Soft colors of peach and creme seem fitting to renew old walls and old desks. 
The walls of a 1920s house and the desk from a junk shop and an undetermined era...  

The desk creates a feminine office space in one section of the living room. 

Vintage blue and purple bottles and a reproduction lamp are objects 
collected over time that peach walls help make focal points on the desk. 
No competition, just complements. 

An African violet sitting on a lavender filled wooden tray is also 
complemented by the peaches and cremes of the room. 

Whites, cremes, and beiges are warmed by the mellow pine shelves 
and the tinges of peach in the magnolia blossom's center.

Do you have a signature color? 
Or does your color preference change?
