Pantone 2024 Color of the Year: How to Use Peach Fuzz in your Home by Meaghan McGlyn

The gentle color brings to mind an embrace that’s calm and nurturing. Reminiscent of the sun on the horizon, or a fruity drink that promises refreshment, Peach Fuzz has a lot of potential in our homes this year.

Pantone Color of the Year: Peach Fuzz

Peach Fuzz is a light pink-orange hue and is described by Pantone Color Institute as subtly sensual, calm, and comforting. Chosen because of its ability to conjure feelings of tenderness, community, and collaboration, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz is as modern as it is vintage and “reflects the past yet has been refashioned with a contemporary ambience,” making it accessible for homes and décor of any decade.

How to Use Peach Fuzz in Your Home

While recent trends have leaned into the monochrome look, Peach Fuzz is versatile in palettes that range from earthy to colorful to neutral. The warm hue can be integrated with a variety of existing décor styles and is only restrained to the homeowner’s preferences.

Using Peach Fuzz with an Earthy Aesthetic

If you’ve already developed a warm palette in your space using earthy browns, greens, and blues, Peach Fuzz can offer warmth and interest. Similar to that pink-orange golden hour that casts a warm light across the landscape, this color of the year can bring sunshine to your space through glass elements like candle sticks, vases, and pendant lights.

Consider lighting your space with tapered candles in transparent orange candle stick holders, or tea lights in short peach hurricanes. Or hang a light with an orange pendant to diffuse the lightbulb and bring that sunset look inside your home all evening. Peach vases are another option to combine your love of nature with the sunny warm hue. Consider a translucent glass vase, or maybe one shaped like a mushroom.

Adding Peach Fuzz to a Colorful Room

Do you prefer a colorful approach to your home’s décor? Peach Fuzz can add a lovely backdrop to help gemstone colors pop out even more. Any good palette is a balancing act, and this peach color can sway that balance supporting your jewels and highlighting their rich shades. Add PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz to your background pieces, like throw blankets, rugs, and walls, then layer your gemstone pieces atop.

Peach Fuzz in a Neutral Room

Many homeowners find that a neutral palette of light and warm off-whites, beiges, and natural woods is more pleasant and easier to maintain. If your home enjoys this minimalist simplicity, and you would like to add another warm color to your aesthetic, Peach Fuzz may be the right one for you.

Adding throw blankets and pillows is a great way to add color to your neutral room, as is replacing your rug with one that includes the pink-orange color in the design. You may also consider swapping out some decorative pieces like coffee table books, vases, and figurines for Peach Fuzz colored replacements.
