Every year, Pantone’s colour of the year has been a good indicator of where interior design is as headed, as well as the general sentiment in the world. In 2024, the home colour authority said peach fuzz will be the most popular hue in people’s homes.

“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a colour radiant with warmth and modern elegance,” says Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of Pantone Color Institute. “A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”

The popularity of peach fuzz in homes is part of a bigger interior design trend we’ll see next year, says Kate Lewis, Creative Lead at furniture and homewares brand Mocka. She says we’ll soon start seeing more and more of the revival of 80s interiors, and peach fuzz is just a part of that.

“80s influences have been creeping into mainstream interiors over the past few years – with light hues of blush tones popping up throughout interior design,” Lewis says.

“This colour of the year certainly has that old-school femme appeal. Peach Fuzz is a warm tone, highlighting the feeling of comfort in a cosy environment, but it can also add light and energy to a dull space.”

Colour, Lewis says, has an incredible ability to transform a space and evoke powerful emotions. And when it comes to peach fuzz, she says she can’t help but feel a wave of nostalgia, as this timeless colour draws inspiration from past era. Its optimistic hue radiates a sense of nurturing and compassion that instantly uplifts any room.

“It envelops a space in a warm embrace, offering reassurance and a sense of quiet,” says Lewis. “Imagine walking into a space bathed in the soft glow of peach fuzz. Instantly, you’ll feel a sense of serenity and comfort wash over you. This colour can make you feel right at home, creating an environment where you can truly unwind and find solace.”

If you’re not keen to go all in by painting your walls in peach fuzz, the hue can easily be more subtly incorporated into your home, helping to make you feel comfortable and peaceful. You might want to consider furniture in the colour, such as sofas of occasional chairs, unholstered in peach fabrics to create a sophisticated and relaxing ambience.

“In the bedroom, duvet covers of headboards in peach tones can introduce a sense of lightness,” she says. “For décor, bright and airy curtains in peach tones can add a delicate touch to windows. Cushions and blankets in peach tones can be placed on occasional chairs, sofas or beds to give them a cosy look.”

Rugs with a peach undertone can be added as a final touch to add warmth to the space. Or you might simply choose a lampshade with a peachy hue, some fresh flowers, which can cost you as little as $15, or potted plants with peach flowers or foliage to add a natural touch to your room.
