Peach Fuzz

Pantone Color of the Year 2024

In keeping with tradition, the widely respected Pantone Color Institute has unveiled its colour of the year for 2024, and it’s none other than Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, a cosy, heartfelt hue that evokes feelings of empathy and genuine friendship.   

Pantone describes Peach Fuzz as a gentle, velvety peach that enriches the heart, body, and mind, bringing feelings of kindness and tenderness, and highlighting our desire for togetherness. An appealing peach hue softly nestled between pink and orange, it is poetic and romantic with a vintage vibe, while simultaneously evoking a sense of modernity. Peach Fuzz reflects the past, yet has been refashioned with a contemporary ambience.

Why Peach Fuzz?

Why was Peach Fuzz selected to be the Pantone Color of the Year 2024? This is what the Institute had to say: at a time of turmoil in many aspects of our lives, our need for empathy and compassion grows ever stronger, as does our imagining of a peaceful future. In a world which often emphasises productivity and external achievements, it is critical that we find moments of respite, creativity and human connection. We cherish what is special: spending time with friends and family, or simply taking a moment of time to ourselves.

With this in mind, the Institute selected a colour that could focus on the importance of community and coming together with others. The colour it selected needed to express our desire to be close to those we love, and the joy we get when we allow ourselves to tune into who we are and savour some quiet time alone. This makes Peach Fuzz the perfect colour for our interiors. A colour that enhances those special, heartwarming moments you spend with friends and family and makes that precious me-time even more comfortable: what more could you wish for?

In your home

Peach Fuzz's gentle allure makes it the perfect choice for large surfaces. You can use it on several walls and even your ceiling without it feeling over the top. It pairs beautifully with natural earthy hues like beige, brown, and grey, or even metallics. Used with gold, it exudes a sense of luxury while retaining its softness. When combined with more vibrant colours such as denim blue, Peach Fuzz tends to accentuate them, which is just what you need when you're going for a bolder aesthetic.

Color of the Year 2024

This year, Peach Fuzz will be everywhere you look: in fashion and accessories, product design and multimedia, interior design and decoration. Obviously, the latter category is what interests us the most. Pantone describes Peach Fuzz as a soft, cosy colour that creates a welcoming ambience. It lends interiors a sense of warmth and softness, whether used on an entire wall, as an accent colour or as part of a more sophisticated decorative scheme.

Used with gold, this colour exudes luxury.
