Is it just me, or have the years just been flying by? As we begin a new year, we reflect on what means the most to us. We live in a world of chaos, emotions, and what seems to be a time when no one wants to slow down for the little things. This year’s Pantone is a gentle reminder to stop and reminisce, take care of yourself, and remember what’s essential as we ring in the new year of 2024. We hope for a better tomorrow—one of warmth and endless possibilities. Pantone’s color of the year – PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz – is based upon the tangibility of warmth. As TIME emphasizes, “Peach Fuzz is a fitting color for the moment we’re living in, a reflection of the basic human needs and desires many may be feeling in the midst of challenging times.” So, as the year begins, stop to watch a sunset, sit fireside with friends, take a moment to breathe, and remember the tangibility of the life that you are living.
For designers, Peach Fuzz is just the color we need in life. After years of neutral tones, peach fuzz is “a warm and cozy shade highlighting our desire for togetherness with others or for enjoying a moment of stillness and the feeling of sanctuary this creates.” (Pantone) This sensation of warmth added into interior design will bring comfort to both our body and soul. Feature it on an accent wall, with new velvet throw pillows, in a fluffy shag rug, or a textured tonal countertop that perfectly matches the color scheme. Create a foundation to develop your design ideas while launching a cozy atmosphere in your space.
For our design team, the perfect way to stage Peach Fuzz is among the warm colors with textural qualities. We love the way this color romanticizes femininity and cusps the nurturing quality of life.
Peach Fuzz can be featured tonally on walls with mixed tints or in various tangible fabrics that make any furniture irresistible. We chose a warm neutral marble countertop from our Ultracera collection that we think pairs perfectly with the warmth of Peach Fuzz. Monacle Coyote is an ivory surface with thick tan marbling that integrates perfectly with the warmth of the color scheme. Our Quietlok Alpine flooring keeps things light and bright in the chosen color, Heathered Bisque. To enrich your room design, browse our rug selection for diverse colors and patterns that will create the perfect final touch. For our design team, ORG-33304 or ORG-1, complement peach fuzz in shade and texture. Whether you need a complete renovation or just some romantic touches, we have the right products for you!
