This post is my fifty-fifth entry for my dear friend Tourmaline’s Color Your World Challenge and this week’s color is Peach. I hope y’all enjoy reading my new post. Hope y’all are staying safe and healthy nowadays! Here’s a link to Tourmaline’s blog

Peach is a color that is named for the pale color of the interior flesh of the peach fruit. This name may also be substituted for “peachy.” Like the color apricot, the color peach is paler than most actual peach fruits and seems to have been formulated (like the color apricot) primarily to create a pastel palette of colors for interior design. The color peach approximates the color of the interior flesh of that variety of peaches known as white peaches. The first recorded use of peach as a color name in English was in 1588. The deep tone of peach called peach in Crayola crayons. Prior to 1962, it was known as flesh, but the name was changed to peach, ostensibly in recognition of the Civil Rights Movement. Known as “Flesh Tint” (1903–1949), “Flesh” (1949–1956, 1958–1962), and “Pink Beige” (1956–1958). Introduced by Crayola in 1903. #FFCBA4

The color deep peach with hexadecimal color code #FFCBA4 is a light shade of orange. In the RGB color model #FFCBA4 is comprised of 100% red, 79.61% green and 64.31% blue. In the HSL color space #FFCBA4 has a hue of 26° (degrees), 100% saturation and 82% lightness. This color has an approximate wavelength of 584.37 nm.

A unique mixture of orange, yellow, and white, peach earned its name from the exterior shade of the fruit. The hex code for peach is #FFE5B4. The neutrality of the white lends a softness to the otherwise warm and bright yellow and orange. With its origin in nature, peach is somewhat comforting. It also gives a sense of joy though not quite as exuberantly as orange does. Peach can be used as both an accent or a background and pairs best with blues. You can also combine it with mint green and gold for a sophisticated and feminine palette. In a RGB color space (made from three colored lights for red, green, and blue), hex #FFE5B4 is made of 100% red, 89.8% green and 70.6% blue. In a CMYK color space (also known as process color, or four color, and used in color printing), hex #FFE5B4 is made of 0% cyan, 10% magenta, 29% yellow and 0% black. Peach has a hue angle of 39.2 degrees, a saturation of 100% and a lightness of 85.3%. The hexadecimal color #FFE5B4 has RGB values of R: 100, G: 89.8, B: 70.6 and CMYK values of C: 0, M: 0.1, Y: 0.29, K:0.
