Peachy Pinky Coral

It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of pink, but lately it’s peach and coral that have my heart.

This was a fun one to photograph. Usually I’d put this type of post together in Photoshop, but I rather like seeing everything actually grouped together!

    I have always had a deep love for peach. Such a feminine and underrated color.

    Gorgeous! I was gifted the recipe card set from the same Rifle Paper Co. range a wee while ago (LOVE them), and now find myself basing entire outfits around that colour scheme. I’m now seriously coveting that bag…

    Beautiful! Our bedroom is painted a color very similar to your cute little West Elm owl dish. I can never remember the name of the color so I just call it Kiwi-Strawberry Snapple-colored! With two west-facing windows it simply glows in the afternoon sunlight.

    Is that the coral colored owl butter dish?? Want to know because I’ve been wanting to get it, but wasn’t sure on the color. Its looks a lot more lighter in your pic and if it is I want it even more…haha.

      It looks a little lighter in my photo that it really is, but it looks a little darker in west elm’s photo, so split the difference.

    We have matching calendars :) I love flipping through to the new month to see what beautiful illustration awaits me next. I’m trying hard to wait until January to take past months a part for some new art around the house!

    I agree w/ the grouping. Sometimes it’s just nice to have the simplicity of photos together, no embellishments.

    Lovely pieces, as always!

    The tea towel is still available at west elm, it seems to be in the bath towel section now. I think its the same colors. Very similar at any rate.

    If you like peachy/pink/coral then you would LOVE my original 1937 bathroom. It’s hard to describe the exact color to someone but this is exactly it!

    I think corals are really flattering, no matter what your colouring, anyone can wear them. I had never though of using them in the home though. I will keep my eye out for some accessories in coral.
