Colour has the power to transform a space, and as we step into 2024, it’s time to explore the colours that will inject some personality into your humble abode. We’re not just talking about your run-of-the-mill beige or off-white; 2024 has big plans for timeless soft black, relaxed sky blue, and energetic terracotta. This year’s colours of the year are anything but mundane.

Here are the 2024 colours of the year from some of the top paint and design companies.

Pantone: Peach Fuzz

Pantone’s highly anticipated colour of the year is Peach Fuzz, which the company says “captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others. It’s a velvety gentle peach tone whose all-embracing spirit enriches mind, body, and soul.”

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

So how can you incorporate Peach Fuzz into your home? Aside from the obvious choice of painting a room or accent wall, you can look to add Peach Fuzz through smaller, more flexible elements in your space. Pantone partnered up with Ruggable and Spoonflower to provide Peach Fuzz rugs, door mats, bath mats, wallpaper, fabric, and other home décor items that give you the chance to bring the Pantone Colour of the Year into your home in 2024.
