Every year, tastemakers from the design worlds of interiors, fashion, products, graphics and marketing wait to discover Pantone’s® “Color of the Year.” Pantone®, the color experts and leading source of trend forecasts and standards for matching colors, has announced the hue for 2024, “Peach Fuzz.”

Peach Fuzz is a color that seems to capture the soft light of a sunrise. It’s like the flush of warmth on a cheek when it’s tickled by the first rays of morning. It’s a subtle, muted shade that’s not quite pink, not quite orange, but somewhere dreamily in between. It’s reminiscent of the delicate fuzz on a ripe peach, suggesting softness, comfort and a touch of playfulness. The hue whispers of early spring blossoms and the velvety skin of a summer fruit, holding a promise of new beginnings and gentle, joyous days within it. This comforting color enriches the mind, body and spirit, capturing our need for compassion and nurturing in a turbulent world.
