Soft, warm, and sophisticated. These are the words our team would use to describe Pantone Colour of the Year for 2024. Still sitting within the ‘pink’ palette, but in stark contrast to last year’s Viva Magenta 18-1750, is the beautifully amiable and inviting Peach Fuzz 13-1023.
Peach Fuzz connotes feelings of kindness and warmth and evokes a sense of feel-good fuzziness that powerfully embraces the human desire for connection and closeness. This affable colour opens up opportunities to nurture our well-being and focus on taking time to nourish, recharge, and embrace stillness in a fast-paced technology-driven world.
What is the Pantone Colour System?
The Pantone Colour System is a standardised colour-matching system designed to help printers and designers across the world control colours during the print process. The Pantone colour reference is unique and stands alone from the CMYK digital printing process.
CMYK stands for the 4 following colours, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black. The printing press uses dots of ink to make up the image from these 4 colours. In contrast, the Pantone colour is already mixed with your chosen colour so it will immediately improve your print output. A Pantone colour ensures consistency and continuity of your print projects especially if you’d like a specific shade of colour!
This year’s colour is synonymous with a feeling of peace and a sense of serene positivity that will no doubt resonate well throughout colour themes and fashions this year.
Where will Peach Fuzz feature?
Interior Design & Home
Because of the modern yet timeless elegance of Peach Fuzz, we’re bound to spot its influence on interior design trends this year. With its cosy and inviting personality, Peach Fuzz is ideal for a feature wall, and we think it will play a starring role as a subtle lift to neutral rooms via soft furnishings; block-coloured or patterned Peach Fuzz cushions, rugs, and ornaments.
Packaging & Multimedia Design
Peach Fuzz’s charm will lend itself beautifully to packaging design, and the tactile nature of the colour makes it an enticing shade for a variety of products in the retail industry, from food and beverage to cosmetics and accessories. With its gentle and delicate character, Peach Fuzz will be a sight for sore eyes and tickle our tastebuds with a sense of sweetness and purity.
Hair & Beauty
The peachy-pink presence and prominence in the Hair & Beauty industry is well established, filtering its way through hair colour and lipstick shades, and accentuating a wide variety of skin tones. Peach Fuzz is a wonderfully versatile shade that will no doubt complement an eclectic mix of colour trends in the hair and beauty world in 2024.
What an exciting year of colour ahead!
