Pantone Colour of the Year 2024: Peach Fuzz

Pantone, a provider of professional colour language standards and digital solutions for the design community, has picked its colour of the year for 2024: Peach Fuzz.

A cozy peach hue softly nestled between pink and orange, Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute, said that Peach Fuzz brings belonging, inspires recalibration, and an opportunity for nurturing, conjuring up an air of calm, offering us a space to be, feel, and heal and to flourish from whether spending time with others or taking the time to enjoy a moment by ourselves.

“Drawing comfort from Peach Fuzz, we can find peace from within, impacting our wellbeing. An idea as much as a feeling, Peach Fuzz awakens our senses to the comforting presence of tactility and cocooned warmth,” she added.

Pantone believes that at a time of turmoil in many aspects of our lives, our need for nurturing, empathy and compassion grows ever stronger as does our imaginings of a more peaceful future. 

“A warm and cozy shade highlighting our desire for togetherness with others and the feeling of sanctuary this creates, Peach Fuzz presents a fresh approach to a new softness. Subtly sensual, Peach Fuzz is a heartfelt peach hue bringing a feeling of tenderness and communicating a message of caring and sharing, community and collaboration,” the company said in its press release.

Sensitive but sweet and airy, Peach Fuzz evokes a new modernity. While centred in the human experience of enriching and nurturing the mind body and soul, it is also a quietly sophisticated and contemporary peach with depth whose gentle lightness is understated but impactful bringing beauty to the digital world. 

Poetic and romantic, a clean peach tone with a vintage vibe, Peach Fuzz reflects the past yet has been rephrased to have a contemporary ambiance. 

The introduction of Peach Fuzz also marks the 25th anniversary of the Pantone Color of the Year program. 

First introduced by the Pantone Color Institute in 1999 with the Pantone Color of the Year, Cerulean Blue, the Pantone Color of the Year captures the global zeitgeist, serving as an expression of a mood and an attitude on the part of the consumer. 

Through the years, the Pantone Color of the Year program has become a globally iconic cultural touchstone, drawing attention to how what is taking place in our global culture is reflected and expressed through the language of colour.

“With this year’s Pantone Color of the Year 2024, we see an increased focus on community and people across the world reframing how they want to live and evaluating what is important—that being the comfort of being close to those we love. The colour is one whose warm and welcoming embrace conveys a message of compassion and whose cozy sensibility brings people together and enriches the soul,” added Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute. 

“In the spirit of Peach Fuzz, we reflect back on the last 25 years of the Pantone Color of the Year program grateful to provide an avenue where designers and colour enthusiasts all over the world can engage in a conversation about colour, be inspired by colour and showcase their creativity within their communities. We look forward to continuing this for many more years to come.”

Introducing soft and cozy Peach Fuzz into home interiors creates a welcoming ambiance. 

A heartfelt peach hue whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul, Peach Fuzz conjures up an air of calm, offering us a space to be, feel, and heal and to flourish from.

Promoting feelings of gentle warmth whether appearing on a painted wall, in home decor or acting as an accent within a pattern, Peach Fuzz infuses our most personalised worlds with a comforting presence.
