Peach Fuzz: Pantone Color of the Year 2024

The Pantone Color of the Year is something I look forward to discovering, discussing, and dissecting every year. But, why? What’s the big deal?

Pantone’s Color of the Year is more than just a pretty color someone picked out. In fact, the Pantone Color Institute spends a great deal of time and energy studying color trends and analytics in order to determine the key color for the coming year. They look at things like fashion, social media, marketing graphics, and even world events before announcing their color forecast!

After looking at the past, the Pantone Color of the Year helps determine the future. Pantone’s color influences the world of design, from fashion and interiors to graphics and marketing. Countless brands and designers make their creations using the color of the year. 

So, without further ado, let’s get into this year’s color: Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz.

Pantone Color of the Year 2024: Peach Fuzz

Peach Fuzz is warm, but not stifling. Its fresh energy is both lively and comforting, cozy and exciting. It is a shade that adds feeling to everything it touches. 

Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, said that Peach Fuzz “resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.” I couldn’t have said it better myself!

Pantone Peach Fuzz in Interior Design

Now, what does this mean for interiors? Like the remainder of the design world, Pantone’s Color of the Year bleeds into the color choices of designers and consumers alike. Ultimately, Peach Fuzz in interior design comes down to the feeling you want to invoke.

For example, similar to a head-to-toe monochromatic fashion ensemble, painting an entire wall or room the color of Peach Fuzz surrounds the soul and the senses with a welcoming comfort. The peachy ambiance is perfect for a gentle, yet lively, energy in your home, condo, apartment, or vacation beach house. Sweet elegance mixes with a new modernity that elevates the space in a way that looks expensive while feeling soothing.

Likewise, peach accents and details add touches of sophistication. Flowing curtains provide movement and texture while colored fixtures and decor bring subtle softness that ensures the space appears tasteful and cohesive.

Modern Interior Design with Peach Fuzz

Although Peach Fuzz may seem like a soft and sweet shade, it still manages to lend itself to sharp lines and stark spaces. Peachy tones allow modern interiors to remain minimalist without becoming too cold. Modern interior design provides a clean-looking and fresh look. But, in a space where you and your family write your stories, the key is ensuring organized minimalism is comfortable and accessible. It’s easy with a color like Peach Fuzz!

Additionally, shades of peach liven up the bare bones of modern interior design textures and patterns. The repetition of straight clean lines and geometric shapes may seem too harsh in glaringly cold neutrals, but with the warmth of Peach Fuzz, these modern interior design characteristics become velvety and lived-in.

Maximalist Interior Design with Peach Fuzz

In contrast, maximalist interior design offers an opportunity to lean into the enthusiastic youth of Pantone’s Peach Fuzz. Maximalist interior design has it all: in with the new and in with the old. Soft fabrics, distressed paint jobs, and vintage pieces create a captivating texture in personal spaces that demand the attention of every onlooker.

These interiors demonstrate the way Peach Fuzz acts as an easy background for stacking and layering additional design accents and accessories. That eclectic souvenir from your favorite trip or the vintage piece from your grandmother. Maximalist interior design allows you to express your personality and, when curated carefully, showcase a richly beautiful interior.

Perhaps we all look for the Peach Fuzz feeling, in our homes and in our lives. A warm embrace that energizes and empowers. This is the true beauty and sacred nature of interior design—designing your perfect space that not only looks good, but feels right.
