Each year, the renowned leading source of color expertise, Pantone, gathers its elite team to carefully select one color that will set the tone for the year. This year, for the 25th anniversary of this color selection, Pantone announced Peach Fuzz as the 2024 Color of The Year.

In an interview with the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute,™ Leatrice Eiseman, she explains the reasoning behind this year’s selection.

“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion offers a tactile embrace and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless,” Eiseman said.

With a tone that relaxes, as much as it does warm the soul, we couldn’t have chosen a better color ourselves!
