Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2024 & how to use it in your refurbishment

The Era of Peach Fuzz: A warm, fuzzy feeling

For over two decades, Pantone has played a pivotal role in shaping trends across various industries. This year Pantone’s Colour of the Year is Peach Fuzz and it is set to dominate the world of fashion, makeup, design and, of course, interior design.

Pantone Color Institute says 2024 will be imbued with the delicacy and warmth of this soft orange. Peach on its own can be described as a blend of orange and pink pigments with a subtle hint of yellow. However, Pantone Peach Fuzz goes beyond the visual, engaging the all the senses, evoking the velvety feel of the fruit, making you think if its sweet taste, and the memory of warmer months.


In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.
