Every year, for the past 25 years, Pantone has selected a color to represent the global mood, to inspire creators and designers, and to symbolize our collective aspirations for the future. This year’s thoughtfully chosen color is PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz.
After the boldness of 2023’s Viva Magenta, Peach Fuzz may feel tame by comparison. But don’t underestimate the versatility and power of this warm peach hue. As its name suggests, the color is a soft pastel that floats radiantly between pink and orange. It gives an impression of warmth, calm, and wellbeing. While evocative of a nostalgic past, it is also clean, modern, and quietly sophisticated.
Why was this color chosen to represent 2024? With the turbulence in our world and lives, Pantone chose a color deliberately intended to evoke a sense of peace, coziness, and simplicity. This color would encourage connection, community, and wellbeing. In their words: “The color we selected to be our Pantone Color of the Year 2024 needed to express our desire to want to be close to those we love and the joy we get when allowing ourselves to tune into who we are and just savor a moment of quiet time alone.” What do you feel when you look at PANTONE 13-01023 Peach Fuzz?
