Turquoise, lavender and peach were the request of my latest client for her nursery. Vintage childrens’ handkerchiefs and animal planters immediately came to my mind when I envisioned that color combination. Luckily a vintage style was also what suited my client who loves quilts and sweet girly decor.
This being an eDesign service my design suggestions had to be currently available and accessible to order online. To achieve a vintage feel from modern products I focused on the color scheme and mixed and match bedding. Like a quilt, if the colors work together the patterns don’t matter as much. The client prefered to have the wall paint a light turquoise and with that as a starting point I added purple and turquoise softgoods to balance out the color weights. Peach is not a color that is not currently trending in the product market, so it is to be added in the accessories and vintage finds that the client is currently searching for herself. I did suggest to paint the ceiling a slight peach color that compliments the warm wood flooring and gives the color a purposeful presence as other peach items are curated in the room.
