After a Barbie pink-filled year, color experts are dubbing 2024 the year of peach — but not just any shade of peach. Peach Fuzz 13-2023, to be exact. In December, the Pantone Color Institute announced Peach Fuzz as its official color of the year, describing the velvety color as a "heartfelt peach hue bringing a feeling of kindness and tenderness, communicating a message of caring and sharing, community and collaboration."

Called "sensitive but sweet and airy," Peach Fuzz is predicted to set the tone for "a new modernity" while also paying homage to a "vintage vibe." In terms of interior design, Pantone says that incorporating Peach Fuzz decor can help create "a welcoming ambiance" and promote "feelings of gentle warmth."

What does Peach Fuzz look like?

According to HomeGoods style expert Jenny Reimold, the color is "a warm, soft tone falling between pastel pink and orange." The soft, bubbly color is a huge shift from last year's Viva Magenta, but Reimold assures that Peach Fuzz is actually a very adaptable color that can fit into many different and pre-existing aesthetics.

"With its warm, welcoming appeal and carefree, lighthearted vibes, Peach Fuzz works in many different capacities and in a variety of rooms. I like to emphasize its coziness by going for plush knits and faux furs," she tells Scary Mommy.

If you're trying to play it safe, Reimond suggests leaning into the "peaches and creams" color palette, which can look lovely in nurseries, offices, and bedrooms where you want a softer and more relaxed feel. Go crazy and play around with different textures, too, Reimond says. Layering stitch quilts, cashmere blends, and intricate embroidery can lead to something beautiful.

What if you want to really lean into the Peach Fuzz aesthetic?

You may have better luck shopping for an area rug, duvet cover, or artwork. Conversely, Reimond points out that those who prefer a bohemian or Indonesian vibe will have no problem mixing in tons of peachy items.

"Peach Fuzz lends itself perfectly to a bohemian-style space. Combine peach tones with terracotta, sage, and wheat for an earthy and grounded mood," she suggests. "Indonesian rattan cabinets rest beautifully on globally-inspired fringed rugs, with warm tones of peach, neutrals, and golds, too."

When incorporating Peach Fuzz into your wardrobe, standalone items like slippers, handbags, and robes are always easiest. Lounge sets can also work.
