The world’s leading prognosticator of color trends, the Pantone Color Institute, has announced the 2024 Color of the Year: Peach Fuzz. Following last year’s vibrant pick, Viva Magenta, this year the Pantone Institute has opted for a softer, warmer, velvety hue.
This isn’t the peach of the ’80s (often paired with Seafoam Green). Peach Fuzz (Pantone #13-1023) evokes not only a color, but a texture. According to the Pantone website, “Visually arresting and inviting, Peach Fuzz is a nurturing peach tone that inspires us to instinctively want to reach out and touch. Conveying a message of tactility that comes through in sueded, velvety, quilted, and furry textures, luxuriously soothing and soft to the touch, Peach Fuzz is an enveloping peach hue that awakens our senses to the comforting presence of tactility and cocooned warmth.”
25 YEARS OF COLOR INFLUENCE
In 2024, Pantone’s Color of the Year program celebrates 25 years of highlighting the role color plays in our lives. The Color of the Year impacts fashion, cosmetics, home furnishings, product design and packaging, multimedia design and commercial interiors, to name a few. Today, the program is a globally-recognized barometer of color trends.
The Color of the Year selection is the result of ongoing discussions among Pantone Color Institute team members. They represent a wide range of design, cultural and geographical backgrounds. The common thread is expertise in color and design, and the ability to see the world through the “lens of color.”
That’s why I liken them to being color anthropologists. They have this intuitive ability to connect all that is taking place in the world and translate it into the language of color. What especially impresses me about the Pantone Color of the Year selection process is that although our Pantone Color Institute members reside in disparate locations and are involved in differing areas of design, we are always able to come to a consensus.Laurie pressman, vice president
PEACHES ARE ALWAYS IN SEASON
You might think of peach as a spring or summer color, but it is actually versatile year-round. Some of our favorite fall arrangements include peach blooms.
brides pick PEACHes year-round
Peach is a very versatile color in the floral realm. Whether it’s peaches and creams, peaches with bright summer blooms, or peaches mixed with fall dahlias and grassy textures, brides are favoring peach hues for their ceremony and reception florals.
Peach is plentiful in the floral world. Roses, dahlias, ranunculus, tulips and many other varieties are available in peach hues. It is an easy color to incorporate into a number of color palettes. As you can see below, peach can complement brights or muted tones just as easily as it works with rich jewel tones.
