Decorators who wish to create feelings of warmth, femininity and softness in their decorating scheme can use peach-coloured items to set the right tone. Fortunately for the interior decorator, peach figures prominently in many decorating styles, ranging from English country to Southwestern. However, it isn't necessary for the decorator to choose a decorating scheme; the colour peach can also function as the tie that binds a room together if a more eclectic style is chosen.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Create an accent wall using peach. Painting one wall -- the accent wall -- a different colour than the surrounding walls has become a popular trend. Paint the wall with a generous coat of peach-coloured paint. Decorate it with objects like photographs or wall mirrors featuring a contrasting or analogous colour like rose or blue. The use of the colour on one wall will draw the eye to it.

  2. 2

    Choose your accent colours according to your decorating goals. Some colours that go well with peach are yellow, burgundy and green. If you want to create a room with a softer look, use these colours in pastels instead of their bolder forms, but make sure that peach is still the primary colour you use. If you've chosen the right accent colours, the peach will stand out more because it has other colours to contrast with.

  3. 3

    Display peach-coloured flowers. Flowers represent a common decorative element in many country styles. Create a corner display with three vases with the tallest one standing in the back. Fill them with peachy flowers like silk roses or tall grasses that have been coloured peach. Or, press some dried peach-coloured petals and frame them to make an art gallery for your wall. Fill wall vases with peach-coloured carnations.

  4. 4

    Introduce patterns in peach. For example, if you gravitate toward throw pillows with peach-coloured floral patterns, mix them in with some pillows that have stripes, chequers or paisleys in peach. The patterns will go together because you've given them a common colour. This brings visual interest to the room without being jarring.

  5. 5

    Set up candle arrangements using peach-coloured candles. Some places to display candle arrangements like these include the fireplace mantel, the dining room table, or in the bathtub using floating candles.

  6. 6

    Hang up wallpaper. Wallpaper featuring peach-coloured roses or stripes will bring a dose of both colour and pattern to the wall. If you're afraid of overpowering a room with the wallpaper, feature it on only one wall, paper only half the wall, or go with a wallpaper border.
