Color Time - Benjamin Moore Salmon Peach

Oh my Jamie Drake, you have converted this no loving "peach" girl into a puddle of admiration! Today's color time photo was promptly torn out of House Beautiful and pinned on my inspiration board. He designed this space for HB's Designer Vision Show House last year and I love everything about it. The Salmon Peach combined with the dark furniture and black framed windows makes for a glamorous and elegant setting.

Benjamin Moore's Salmon Peach was used throughout the living space but taken up a notch 
with the addition of a light bronze glaze.

This is the woman Jamie Drake envisioned living in the space:
"Very glamorous, very urbane. I invented her as the granddaughter of Josephine Baker, the Jazz Age icon. She's a successful woman in her late 40s who is the special events director of a major fashion magazine."

Can we digress from the paint color and talk about the fabulous bookshelves? Such great styling!

Would you consider using a Peach or Coral color in your house?

*Note: The above room is the actual paint color not just a resemblance of the color. As you can see above, the paint chip sample online looks different than what is in the actual room photo. When choosing paint for your own home never go by what you see online, the color will always be a tad different. I suggest picking up a small paint sample at the store and paint a color swatch in the actual room, than you will never be disappointed!
