Pantone colour 2024: Peach Fuzz, a delicate peach shade

The Pantone Colour Institute, the American institute specialising in the study of colours, has once again presented the Pantone Colour of the Year 2024, the colour that will dominate trends in fashion, make-up, interior design and multimedia design. The choice for 2024 fell on PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, a delicate and velvety peach shade that enriches the soul, body and mind.


A refined and elegant peach shade 

Somewhere between pink and orange, PANTONE Peach Fuzz 13-1023 is a refined and elegant peach shade that immediately conveys a sense of tranquillity. 

As Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, explains, "PANTONE Peach Fuzz 13-1023 is an enveloping peach shade that inspires a sense of belonging, new equilibrium, and an opportunity to take care of oneself, finding one's own space in which to feel good and improve. By drawing comfort from Peach Fuzz 13-1023 we can find inner peace, with a positive impact on our well-being. 

Delicate, tender and sensual, PANTONE Peach Fuzz 13-1023 evokes a new modernity: on the one hand it has a vintage feel that reflects the past, yet on the other hand it has a very contemporary look.


A message of love and sharing 

In an age full of difficult situations, the need for comfort, empathy and compassion grows by the day, as does the desire for a peaceful future. Peach Fuzz is a compassionate and inclusive shade of peach that emphasises the desire for solidarity with others, communicating a message of love and sharing, a sense of community and collaboration.


25 years of Pantone Colour of the Year 

The presentation of PANTONE Peach Fuzz 13-1023 coincides with the 25th anniversary of the Pantone Colour of the Year programme. Introduced by the Pantone Color Institute in 1999, the Pantone Color of the Year is now a global event that represents the ultimate expression of a mood, trend and consumer attitude. Over the years, the Pantone Colour of the Year programme has become a global benchmark that reflects the reality of the world by expressing it through colour.


Peach Fuzz in interior design 

After two years of very bright colours, the choice of the Pantone Colour Institute has turned towards a delicate shade that breaks the series of striking colours and brings back lightness.

 In interior design, the soft, enveloping Peach Fuzz 13-1023 creates a cosy ambience: it evokes feelings of calm and offers a space in which to be ourselves, with new vigour and strength. This shade fits more easily into all rooms in the home, blending well with natural materials such as wood, with neutral or earthy colours or even with pastel shades.
