Peach Fuzz in Action as Color of The Year 2024

Peach Fuzz, Pantone’s 2024 Color of the Year,  exudes a sense of warmth, comfort, and coziness that instantly captivates. Its very name evokes the exact tactility the shade was chosen for: a soft, velvety embrace. The hue falls at the intersection of orange and pink, conjuring a gentle sunrise or an inviting summer’s breeze. Pantone’s selection of this color reflects a deep understanding of our need for moments of respite, creativity, and human connection amid the hustle and bustle of modern life.

The rise of Peach Fuzz marks a subtle yet significant shift in the design landscape. From dominating fashion runways to gracing red carpets and even infiltrating interior spaces, peach tones have emerged as the go-to choice for those seeking a blend of sophistication and serenity.


Peach shades were a staple of spring-summer 2024 fashion runways, particularly at shows presented by houses like Gucci, Jil Sander, and Sportmax. At the 2023 Women Making History Awards, Uma Thurman sported a monochromatic, peach Prada dress.


While at last year’s Oscars ceremony, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson gleamed in a peach, satin Dolce and Gabbana jacket. More recently, models like Bella Hadid and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley have also been spotted flaunting chunky, peach-colored sunglasses.

In response to the turmoil the past few years have wrought, interior designers have also been turning to shades of peach to conjure organic, calm spaces for their clientele. Designer Elizabeth Drake pairs peach walls with terracotta flooring to “bring a soft, warm feeling” to rooms with less sunlight: “’the peach brings a glow to the room, regardless of the amount of daylight.’”


Designer Tracy Morris includes peach accents in modern spaces because of their special ability to “’bring warmth to a potentially cold space.’” Ultrafabrics has also joined the peachy conversation by curating an interior focused color palette called Sanctuary, which grounds Peach Fuzz with warm shades to create spaces of comfort and togetherness.

Not to be outdone, Peach Fuzz has also found its way into the realm of technology design. Motorola recently launched their Edge 40 Neo and Razr 40 Ultra phone models in the signature peach shade. The combination of Pantone’s color expertise and Motorola’s engineering mastery is meant to usher in a new era of phones; ones that aren’t just gadgets, but “artistic design innovations.”


In every facet of design, from fashion to interiors to technology, Peach Fuzz stands as a beacon of warmth, comfort, and creativity, inviting us to embrace its soothing embrace in our daily lives.
