I helped my friend/old boss Jenny at AG Interior Design, with an install on Saturday because she has gone back to business school and needed some extra help finishing up her current projects. I did about 2 days worth of accessory shopping for a room that I hadn’t seen, so it was definitely a designer’s challenge but it ended up working out all right. Needless to say…the room is unique. Yes, it is PEACH…the color that my mom decorated our entire house in, in 1989. But I have to say that the peach kind of grew on me…and once everything was put together I actually kind of liked it. I couldn’t live in it, but it was fun to do something different! We decided that the style of the room was probably “South beach glam.” Her client was seriously giddy with excitement as we were putting up her peach leopard swags!
Most of these fabrics were from Barbara Barry’s collection, who is a very high-end, sophisticated designer whose style is a clean, understated take on hollywood glam. She focuses on soft color palettes, tone on tone, and lots of texture. So yes, this peach room was very expensive…but for peach, I think it was tastefully done.
And watch out, peach it’s having a comeback in fashion also so it might just make it’s way into your living room next. I must admit I’m falling for it…loving these peach-ies from j.crew right now.
