The Color of the Year selection is a highly anticipated one, as the color choice sets the landscape of design for the year, allowing trends to either flourish or fall. Pantone’s selection of Peach Fuzz is already shaping the aesthetic landscape of 2024, due to its subtle allure and versatile charm. We’ll unravel the significance of this color selection and explore its underlying meanings all while discovering how to effortlessly infuse this trendsetting shade into your living spaces as we transition into spring.


Why Peach Fuzz is 2024’s color of the year​

While each color of the year selection brings excitement, 2024’s color, Peach Fuzz, is special for a multitude of reasons, especially in the decor and design space. We reached out to experts from across the country to get their take on 2024’s color of the year. Here’s what they had to say:

Psychological benefits​

“Peach Fuzz isn’t just a color; it’s a mood enhancer,” Muralist Angelina Villalobos says, “it exudes a quiet strength, adding depth and warmth to any palette or room.” Taylor Lewis-Costa, Owner and Creative Director of TLC Homes, notes, “Peach Fuzz ignites energy and should be utilized to uplift your space. Artist Pamela Caughey further emphasizes the transformative qualities of Peach Fuzz, especially when paired with neutral colors, suggesting that it “brings a lasting sense of peace and joy to your soft, glowing surroundings, that’ll be enjoyed day after day.”

While these takes may sound contradictory, they underscore the complexity of this color. Managing Partner of Boylston Writes, Melissa Pallotti, perfectly explains this by saying, “Peach Fuzz strikes a balance between energy and calm that is difficult to achieve.”


The complexity of Peach Fuzz also enhances the color’s versatility.“Peach Fuzz combines the optimism and warmth of orange with the calming feel of a pastel hue,” notes Artist Kerwin Blackburn. He further explains, “It manages to be both light and airy yet also warm and inviting, making this a flexible color choice for many types of homes, both modern and traditional.”

The color's duality doesn't end with its appearance. Moschburg, a Floridian Muralist, describes Peach Fuzz as “having a unique ability to blend the vibrancy of orange with the gentleness of pink making it an ideal choice for adding a touch of warmth and luminosity. Peach Fuzz is perfect for those looking to refresh their living spaces with a cozy, inviting glow.”



Timeless colors, like Peach Fuzz, maintain their charm and relevance while withstanding the test of changing trends. Graphic designer and muralist Rita Carr touches on the timelessness of this color explaining that “there isn’t a backdrop the color doesn’t harmonize with, it complements nearly every color palette and it’s hard to find a tone it clashes with. Peach Fuzz is the new neutral.” Using a timeless color, like Peach Fuzz, allows you to decorate freely from the shackles of trends, free from worrying about how long a color will be deemed in style.

Timeless colors are also characterized as those that weave narratives across eras. Picket Fence Art Studio Owner and Painter, Jamie Lightfoot, echoes this sentiment: “Peach Fuzz reminds us of the softness and light found in life. Look for it in art, where it is used as a hint of warmth in a shadow or a soft glow on a flower petal, the whisper of dawn or the blush of a secret shared. It softens edges, blurs boundaries and whispers stories of sun-kissed mornings.”


Infusing Peach Fuzz into your living spaces​

Effortlessly infuse this trending color into your living spaces, creating an ambiance of warmth and elegance with these expert tips.

Accent wall​

A great way to bring a pop of color into your home is through an accent wall. Ryan, Owner of Patch and Paint Pros, offers this recommendation: “Incorporate this delightful hue as an accent wall in your living room or bedroom, which will create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Pair it with neutral tones for a sophisticated look or complement it with soft blues and greens for a refreshing touch.”


Wall art​

A renter-friendly way to harness the power of Peach Fuzz is through wall art. You can update an entire room with a new piece of original art that features the color Peach Fuzz,” Artist Heidi Ann Harner explains. “The textures, tones and dimensionality of an original painting carry a lot of weight while adding value to your space. At the same time, you can feel good about supporting working artists.”

Artist Jennifer Taylor echoes the same sentiment, saying that “Accenting your space with original art will help set the tone for conversation or admiration. Original art can have hints of peach fuzz, or even be the dominant color, offering flexibility.”


Sarah Seung-McFarland, Psychologist, Interior Designer and Founder of Trulery, recommends furniture accents for a more subtle use of Peach Fuzz. “As an accent on furniture and fabrics, Peach Fuzz can add a bit of sparkle,” she notes. Seung-McFarland also recommends employing the color wheel to carefully curate the vibe within a space, especially when selecting furniture. “If you want your space to feel soothing, add peach fuzz to richer colors, closer on the color wheel such as burgundy and deep reds. But if you’re looking for more of a contrast, you can pair it with teal or blue greens to create balance and energy,” she explains.



The simplest way to infuse Peach Fuzz is through accessories. “Incorporate Peach Fuzz in small accessories like vases, candles, picture frames and decorative objects to add warmth and dimension to the room,” suggests Kim Duncan, Designer and Co-Founder of KayDeez Paint and Design. “Display green plants in Peach Fuzz-colored pots or planters to complement the soft hue and add a natural element to the room,” Duncan adds.
