5 ways to use this season's hottest colour in your home

It’s official – this season’s hottest colour is peach!

Forget the overly vibrant peach colour that may have sprung to mind, we’re obsessing over the more muted and dusty peach tones, or dreamy soft pastel peach colours that are dominating homeware stores right now.

You don’t have to go overboard or buy all new homewares to update your interiors. But can introduce a bit of peach into your life with these 5 simple tips.

1. Textiles

Without a doubt, the easiest and most effective way to introduce a new colour palette into your home is with cushions and throws.

Consider adding one or two peach cushions to your sofa (looks great paired with more neutral tones) or add a peach feature cushion to your bed styling. Alternatively, draping a throw blanket over your sofa or the foot of your bed will work wonders too.

2. Décor

There’s a huge range of latest season peach décor that’s too pretty to resist! Just check out this hourglass from Freedom with oh-so-soft peach sand.

You could create a small vignette like this in your home. Here are my top tips to achieve this look:

  • Use a tray, trivet or a stack of books as a base
  • Layer 3, 5 or 7 items on top as odd numbers look more appealing
  • Play with height and scale
  • Mix textures and materials.

3. Artwork

For those of us who are a bit shy when it comes to using colour in the home, colourful artwork can feel like a safer option.

Oversized abstract floral prints, bird and horse photography, and geometric colour blocking are all trending. Look for a piece that uses peach tones, like this bird artwork with a soft peach background.

4. Indoor pots

Everyone's love of indoor plants is only growing and, as a result, there are more vessels, pots and hanging planters on the market than ever.

I just love this eco-resin pot with gold highlights made locally in Australia by Capra Designs. Consider clustering several pots together that combine different sizes, textures and materials.

5. Vessels

For the most subtle way of all, you could simply look at adding a few small ceramic pieces in your home. Small vessels are a décor piece in their own right or can be used practically as salt and pepper pinch pots on the dining table, or for holding jewellery on the bedside table.
