Styling With The Pantone Colour Of The Year

January 2024 In Entertaining

Pantone has announced Peach Fuzz as the 2024 Colour of the Year, encouraging us to bask in the warmth of this delicate pink-orange hue.  

Gail Connor, the Senior Interior Designer at Dennis Family Homes, says Peach Fuzz is not just a colour, “it’s a vibrant and playful shade that brings to mind thoughts of summer parties and carefree fun.” 

For a dose of contemporary inspiration that aligns with 2024 trends, check out Dennis Family Homes‘ interior decorating styles, Organica Luxe and Melody. These styles incorporate highlight colours and comfort elements seamlessly to create inviting spaces in your kitchen, living areas, and bedrooms. 

The Boardwalk façade, when paired with the Bellarine or Robinvale home designs, cleverly extends the on-trend interior styling with a lighter palette on the outside, creating a harmonious flow. 

Described by Pantone as a “velvety gentle peach tone,” Peach Fuzz captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others.  

Gail Connor emphasizes that this colour “reflects a shift from greys to warmer tones, making Peach Fuzz a perfect fit for the ongoing warm colour palette trend.” 

“Time will tell how it filters through furnishings and bounces off other influential colour sources. Keep an eye out for it in fashion, graphics, homewares and interior furnishings to track how designers and stylists are using it. Then adopt what works for your living spaces.” 

In a departure from the bold Viva Magenta of 2023, Peach Fuzz brings a sense of calm and inclusivity, aligning with timeless and luxurious interior design concepts. 

Gail suggests embracing a hand-crafted feel with unique interior features against fresh warm colours in 2024.  

“The focus is on natural materials with curved edges, underpinned by sustainable choices.” 

“For a new home build, start with a few confident and timeless selections—cabinet colour, benchtop colour, or tiles—and watch everything fall into place.” 

Gail’s advice for people wanting to incorporate Peach Fuzz into home decor? 

“Look for temporary ways to accent the interior, to see if it fits and can be present longer than a season.” 

“There’s a rising trend of vibrant colours in both fashion and interiors as people seek the joy of life and a return to normalcy.” 

Expect to see statement pieces in homes as individuals make more thoughtful decisions about long-term additions. 

When it comes to furniture, lighter timbers like oak are making a comeback, complementing the fresh colour palette.  

Sustainability in furniture becoming a must, but you don’t have to break the bank chasing down brand new solid oak. Second-hand furniture stores or online marketplaces can often have the perfect piece waiting to be found. 

Sustainability also extends to home décor, with natural materials becoming more prevalent.  

Gail emphasizes “the strong presence of green in interiors, making Peach Fuzz a versatile choice that pairs well with various greens, from earthy olives to vibrant emeralds.” 

“I think the Japanese concept of Wabi Sabi, finding perfection in imperfection, will continue to be reflected in the artisanal trend of homewares that appear to be handmade.”  

Fresh flowers and indoor plants add life to your interior. 

Gail points out that plants in the home encourage a sense of tranquillity. 

“Bring the outdoors in and create a sense of well-being so they will continue to play an important role in interior decor. As a low-cost item, they are within the reach of everyone.” 

Aim for flowers that complement your interior style and colours.  

Whether an arrangement of fresh-cut flowers or adding indoor plants, these natural elements bring a touch of nature into your home with minimal maintenance. 

So, get ready to embrace the inviting warmth of Peach Fuzz in 2024, making your home a comfortable and stylish haven for all seasons!
