Blue & White & Peach

Lisa Henderson - Flower Magazine

A lovely foyer in this NYC apartment with lots of blue and white Chinese porcelain. The walls are painted in Benjamin Moore Daylily.

BM Daylily #80 is a peach, but I like it much better than Pantone's Color of the Year Peach Fuzz #13-1023 that I recently posted about. Daylily is a softer, more neutral, coral rosy peach that I prefer. Much easier to use.

A pretty collection of blue and white Chinese porcelain fills the top and beneath an eighteenth century mahogany sideboard. I love the addition of a tulipiere. Tulipieres are often seen as a pair by themselves, but I love it here singly with a collection of blue and white. This one looks identical to the one I posted about and snagged at a great sale at Frontage that is unfortunately no longer available. 

The blue patterned lampshade is very pretty. Ballard Designs has two very similar ones and both are on sale - 

Leighton Pleated Lampshade

Isla Block Pleated Lampshade

A beautiful Oushak rug mirrors the soft peach of the walls and blues of the Chinese porcelain.


  1. It's a beautiful color. There was a specific peach color that the late decorator, Mario Buatta, used frequently, and I cannot recall the name of it. I always loved they way he decorated rooms. They were just so exuberantly pretty. If I had to choose a favorite decorator, it would be him.

  2. So pretty! This color would look good in a powder room.

  3. My bedroom as a young teen was peach and seafoam green (cue Laura Ashley)! This hits me right in 1983. ❤️
