Before diving headfirst into a sea of Peach Fuzz, why not dip your toes first? Start simple. Small and affordable accessories are your best friends when experimenting with new colors.

Peach Fuzz has a wonderfully retro vibe that can be leveraged to merge past and present. Hunt for vintage furniture pieces that can be reupholstered in Peach Fuzz tones.

Add contemporary patterns, like bold geometric throws or minimalist art, to bridge the gap between decades.
