Understanding Pantone's Colour of the Year

Peach Fuzz, like its predecessors, isn't just another shade; it's a reflection of collective moods, thoughts, and the undercurrents fusing our society. This peachy tone balances the softness and tranquility of pastels with an energizing burst of zest. It is indicative of hopefulness and, certainly, an advocate for a more spirited approach to interior design.


Incorporating Peach Fuzz in Interior Design

Colour Psychology and Mood

Every color impacts mood, and Peach Fuzz is no different. Its soothing undertone promotes comfort, while the vividness inspires creativity and social warmth. It’s a perfect choice for rooms where conversation and community merge, like living rooms and dining areas.


Accent Walls and Statement Pieces

An accent wall in Peach Fuzz can become the focal point of any room, offering a modern, artful backdrop for furnishings. For the more adventurous, consider statement pieces like a Peach Fuzz-coloured chaise lounge or a plush armchair to create a standout feature.


Furniture and Accessories

Not ready for full immersion? Start with Peach Fuzz furniture accents like ottomans, side tables, or even picture frames. The colour pairs gracefully with a range of materials, including woods and metals, adding a sun-kissed glow to urban and rustic aesthetics alike.


Textiles and Fabrics

Throw pillows, area rugs, or curtains in Peach Fuzz bring gentle warmth to spaces without the commitment of paint or furniture. It's an excellent way to trial the color in different settings and light conditions.


Creating Harmonious Colour Palettes

Peach Fuzz offers a broad canvas for complementary, monochromatic, and analogous color schemes. Pair it with crisp whites for a fresh, clean look or with lush greens and blues for an earthy, sea-kissed palette. Adventurous designers can contrast it with dark teals or greys to bring a contemporary edge. 


1. Crisp Whites

To allow Peach Fuzz to truly shine, nothing works better than pairing it with crisp whites. The freshness of white provides a stark contrast that makes Peach Fuzz pop without overwhelming the senses.


2. Sage Green

Introduce sage green into a Peach Fuzz themed room for a soothing natural escape. These two colours share a low-key brightness that works together to create an environment that feels both grounded and ethereal.
