Amid 2024’s rising tide of cool tones, Pantone’s Peach Fuzz is a warming counterweight. Whether as a rug offering a textural contrast to harder surfaces or deployed as a dining room accent wall to create a convivial atmosphere, Peach Fuzz brings comfort, compassion, and connectivity to any space where people want to feel at ease. Capable of both standing out amid traditional neutrals and holding its own among today’s landscape of brighter, bolder colors, expect to see Pantone’s pick pop up anywhere that calls for chilled out vibes or creative inspiration.
