Peach Fuzz was named the Pantone Color of the Year for 2024. Expect to see this color woven into home decor, art, and of course – flowers.

A hope for calm is clearly motivating this choice which is found so often in nature.  “At a time of turmoil in many aspects of our lives, our need for nurturing, empathy and compassion grows ever stronger as does our imaginings of a more peaceful future,” company officials said.

“With this year’s Pantone Color of the Year 2024, we see an increased focus on community and people. across the world reframing how they want to live and evaluating what is important – that being the comfort of being close to those we love. The color is one whose warm and welcoming embrace conveys a message of compassion and whose cozy sensibility brings people together and enriches the soul,” added Laurie Pressman, Vice President of the Pantone Color Institute.”A warm and cozy shade highlighting our desire for togetherness with others and the feeling of the sanctuary this creates.”

PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz is described as a “a cozy peach hue softly nestled between pink and orange.”

The introduction of PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz also marks the 25th anniversary of the Pantone Color of the Year program.

Ball Horticultural, Coreopsis

As we all know, color activates our senses and unlike more bold colors of the past, this choice hits all the right notes. Here are some flowers in this color palette to complement the Pantone color. It’s all interpretive and subjective. Could peach fuzz be the Island Blush from Schreiner’s Garden? Or even the David Austin Phoenix and Salmon Ranunculus from Rosaprima?  Or maybe the Princess Miyuki and Juliet from Alexandra Farms? Or maybe the light apricot lisianthus of Farmer Bailey Plugs? Ball Horticultural, the planting giant, has a lovely Coreopsis verticillata Crème Caramel if you love perennials or a Matthiola Column Stock Apricot, PanAmerican Seed.

The options are endless and so is the fun. These lists also root us to cultural trends that collectively uplift our creative spirits and relevance.

Happy decorating and planting.
