We’re feeling peachy keen as we head into 2024!

11th December 2023

Pantone has just released its official colour of the year for 2024…Peach Fuzz (13-1023). It is a gentle, warming peach tone to inspire a sense of tranquillity, gentleness, and enrichment. Whether you are looking for the odd statement piece or going all out with a monochromatic peach room, we’re sure that Peach Fuzz will leave you with a ripple of calm throughout your space.

The last few years have been transitional from lockdown to lively again! After the boom of re-immersion into normal life, we are reminded by Pantone’s Colour of the Year for 2024 to accept softness into our lives. That slowing down and embracing a gentle, calm approach as we go through the next year can be so beneficial.


“Peach Fuzz captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It’s a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul.”

Latrice Eiseman, Executive Director, Pantone.

It has been scientifically proven that warm colours and attributing warm lighting, specifically colours and lighting that reflect similar hues to a setting sun, can actively help with our well-being and mood. Oranges, peaches, and yellows in particular help to take our minds to a place where we feel at peace.

Executive Director, Leatrice Eiseman at Pantone talks about the reasoning behind their 2024 colour choice by stating “In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a colour radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.

We agree! We see a timeless colour in Peach Fuzz reminiscent of traditional 1940’s wallpapers, 1960’s dresses, 1980’s satin shirts and 1990’s interiors! Peach is a staple of times gone by and remains a colour often misunderstood. With exceptional complementary colours, even multi-tonal peach colours, Pantone’s Peach Fuzz really could be your reclamation of peace and tranquillity in your home!
