Peach is a versatile color when it comes to decorations. There are dozens of ways in which you can use it to create warmth in your house.
From the fruit inspiration, the color ranges from pinkish yellow, to pinkish orange, to a lightly tinted orange.
Peach tiles combine exquisitely with many colors, but certainly not all of them.
Here are some of the colors that combine harmoniously with peach tiles.
Peach and royal blue create a vibrant, dynamic color scheme.
Due to the natural contrast, lively peach shades glow more intensely when paired with blues and greens. Since peach is a close cousin to orange, blue makes a natural complement.
Royal blue and peach fit perfectly in the bathroom, especially for a breezy coastal theme.
Peaches and Cream
Peach pairs beautifully with whites and cream tints.
In a room with peach tiles, off-white or creamy walls make a bright, joyful match. For a softer, feminine touch, consider highlighting this blend with gold and beige accents.
Once again, the bathroom is a great place to consider this scheme for a bright, refreshing tone.
For a warmer feel, pair your peach tile with a rich shade of reddish-brown, like the cozy hues of mahogany or cherry wood.
The only caveat to this concoction is that you want to be sure you’re working with a warmer peach that matches the depth of wood tones. As we’ve mentioned in other articles, this is easily done if you bring a photo to the home improvement store for a winning color combo.
For the paler brown-reds like auburn and terracotta, you want to make sure you’re working with a bright peach that isn’t too orange.
Pink tones create a nice contrast, while the yellower shades of peach will play nicely on warm earth-tones.
What you want to watch out for is pairing colors whose tints are so close that they clash (this means they’ve been lightened too similarly, as if they’re different versions of the same color).
The right shade of orange can really bring peach tiles to life.
A red-orange works well with a pink-toned peach, just as a yellow-orange will make a brighter yellowish peach pop with sunny vibrance.
As we mentioned before, you want to avoid similar tints, so be sure you’ve got a pic or tile sample when choosing paints and other highlights.
