    I'm enjoying the comments about the color turquoise... and trends, and now it has me wondering...

    What about peach?

    You can hardly find any fabrics in true peach colors these days. Plenty of salmon-rose and orange, but not peach.

    Is it totally out of vogue right now?

    Anyone out there that favors peach?

    I had a peach bathroom at one time, and it was the hardest color to match up. Some would be too pink, some too yellow. It seems like once a color is trendy, folks get burned out on it for while. A good example is pink and black - it still reminds me of my grandparent's bathroom!

    peach went out in the 40's didnt it? all the rage back then. Um its ok.. doesnt seem to go much with the rest of the stuff on the market. I like it in a nice t shirt :) of course being so light colored it becomes a magnet for dirt ..and always in all the right spots ..(ps my nickname growing up was Peachy and everyone still loves to slap it on me.. at 48 its not as cute as at 4)

    Depends on what you call "peach". I once worked in a stationary store where people came to order wedding invitations. If the wedding was peach, nothing would match!

    I love the color peach. I have one fat quarter that is the perfect peach color for me. I use it to judge the other color peaches. The prettiest peach is usually mixed in with a design on the fabric.

    I don't know what to say about orange! Yesterday we had a fabric sales rep stop by, and there were so many yellow-and-orange combinations, especially in the kids' lines. It was almost as though any red, pink or magenta had been replaced with orange.
