Monday moodboard | Peachy keen

If our recent consultations are anything to go by, peach is fast becoming the colour du jour for 2015. The new coral, it seems. I’m totally on board because it’s a beautiful shade and a great way to do pastels without going feeling too girly with pink or purple.

My favourite peach blooms include David Austin Juilet, Tiffany and Finesse roses, ranunnculus, amaryllis and tulips. I like to pair them with white (hydrangeas, peonies, roses) as well as grey brunia and senecio maritima (aka Dusty Miller. However, to really mix things up, I’d bring in some dark contrasting beauties, like purple Scabiosa and Chocolate Cosmos with plenty of lush foliage and brown Queen Anne’s Lace, to add a little edge and interest to the otherwise soft palette.

Are you including peach in your wedding flowers? If so, are you keeping a fairly neutral or braving some contrasting colours? I’d love to hear your thoughts. peach weddingPeach wedding flowersJuliet rose – source unknown / Ghost dye-to-order dress
