Pantone announces ‘Peach Fuzz’ as Colour of the Year 2024

13th December 2023 | All About Kitchens

The global colour experts, Pantone, have announced their Colour of the Year 2024, Peach Fuzz (PANTONE 13-1023). Soft and welcoming, this shade encourages you to ‘embrace the warmth.’

Latrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Colour Institute™ comments, “In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearnings 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.

A Heartfelt Hue

Going into 2024, it is important to find moments of respite and human connection amid the busyness of modern life. Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2024 expresses the desire to be close to those we love and savour every moment.

Peach Fuzz is a velvety tone that captures our desire to nurture, bringing a feeling of kindness and tenderness. Nestled between pink and orange, Peach Fuzz is quietly sophisticated with a gentle lightness that is understated yet impactful. Communicating a message of caring and sharing, this shade highlights the feeling of sanctuary and stillness. Peach Fuzz is the perfect colour to help soften a bold colour to bring balance to your space, such as a statement painted wall paired with a Heritage Green kitchen.
