It's Peach Fuzz and it's glorious.
Happy Pantone-mas to all who celebrate. For design nerds, the reveal of the brand’s official Colour of the Year is as eagerly awaited as a visit from Santa. And this year, Pantone hath bestowed upon us a juicy, juicy hue: Peach Fuzz.
In stressful holiday times, at least we have something bright and beautiful to turn to. Peach Fuzz (the 25th official Colour of the Year) hits that sweet spot between orange and pink: energizing, but gentle; feminine without being too bubblegum; fresh but full of warmth.
Forget about your holiday decorating. It’s time to put up your new Pantone decorations—pieces that live on the Peach Fuzz colour spectrum.
A neutral sofa may be the safe choice—but is it the fun choice? Live a little and embrace this perfectly peachy edition of the EQ3 Oskar Plush apartment sofa ($3,349). Though the colour swatch says “Onno Light Orange,” in our humble opinion, Peach Fuzz is a state of mind.
Again, this BoConcept Hamilton dining chair ($969) is technically “Dusty Rose,” but we say: close enough. It’s hard to be ahead of the curve, OK? The modern form helps keep this fresh, peach-blush seat from being overly frou-frou.
This sunset print from photographer Shelan Markus (from $168) captures the vibrant colours of a fresh Okanagan peach. The gelato shop in the shot just doubles the sweet effect.
A feature wall in graphic peach paper seems like the ideal way to pledge alligence to 2024’s delicious hue. This Otto Studio Arcs paper (from $64 a roll) will do nicely.
Whether you’re sipping water or negronis out of these pretty, peachy highball glasses from Simons ($14 for 2), this is a glassware design worth toasting.
We love a colour of the year that dares us to ask, “where does peach end and pink begin?” This Muuto Ambit pendant lamp ($815) will help brighten our perspective.
Farrow and Ball’s Faded Terracotta paint ($46 for 0.75L) is a near-perfect match for the Pantone colour of the year. Paint your whole bathroom, we dare you.
This Welles Double-Blown glass table lamp ($2,595) looks like—in our expert design opinion—a beautiful, melty ice cube diamond. The fact that it comes in this warm, peach-amber shade gives us the perfect excuse to watch it sparkle.
