Peach Wall Color in My Mother's Room
I painted the walls pink/peach to make Mom happy
My mother was recently living in a nursery home, but after a little incident, I decided I didn't want to rely on people who I knew nothing about to take care of her. So I took her out and moved her in with my two children and I.
Moving her in was very exciting because I felt now I can give back and show how much I appreciated all the years she gave raising my brothers and me.
I wanted to surprise her with her room (I live in a three bedroom, two baths apartment in which one of the rooms was used as an office).
So I went to work, I wanted it to be perfect. I watched a lot of "Extreme Home Makeover" to get some ideas for her room.
I started with the paint. I knew her favorite color was pink, but I didn't want to just use any pink, so I went to Lowe's for ideas (I never knew how many shades of pinks there were).
Anyway, I came across this shade that was between "light pink" and "misty rose" (which is like peach), which also reminded me of her famous peach pies!
I was going for a relaxing and vibrant welcoming vibe. So my mind was made up, I had to also find bedding and furniture to fit in with the theme.
On the move in day when I opened that door she was just mesmerized, I could see it on her face (very emotional moment). I mean she loved it! She told me it reminded her of when she would visit her grandmother on the weekends...
