Peach Fuzz: Pantone’s Colour of the Year
The word is out on Pantone’s 2024 Colour of the Year! They’ve chosen Peach Fuzz as an emblem for a year in which, after so long spent in isolation, we finally came together again. There’s a very tactile quality to Peach Fuzz, evoking the feeling of stepping out of hibernation and towards loved ones, experiencing those face-to-face, skin-to-skin interactions we’d been missing. The hue has also got a very natural, human quality to it. It’s familiar and grounding while light and gentle. It offers a moment of respite while emitting a soft and soothing tone. Even the name itself is warm and welcoming!
Peach Fuzz has a velvety pinkish-orange quality to it, taking on a nurturing character. That, in tandem with its innate beauty as a colour, makes it a fabulous choice for an interior. We find it works wonderfully as a wall colour, giving off a sense of warmth and quiet energy. It looks great in a monochrome palette, so adding some matching furniture to the mix really ups the ante. Consider going all-out with upholstery, opting for an armchair or sofa in this glorious glow. We’d recommend our Lupine fabric in the Apricot colourway to get the look.
If you’re not entirely sold on Peach Fuzz yet, you can start small! Try it out as a throw cushion or a footstool. These small pops are sure to bring an element of cosiness and contentment to your space, setting the ideal tone as we stride into 2024.
