'Peach fuzz 'color of the year', how I use peach in my art + our favorite peachy color palettes'

Each year, The Pantone Color Institute selects a shade that they feel will best reflect the color trends in the upcoming year. Pantone’s color of the year for 2024 is ‘peach fuzz’ and as a long time lover of the color peach, I’m all for it.

Peach is a delicate orange-y pink color that exudes warmth, softness and playfulness. It’s muted tone makes it the perfect, warm neutral that can play nicely with so many colors. I personally love to use a peach color in my artwork to add a bit of femininity and lightness. I am also and a huge fan of peachy retro/vintage style color palettes.
