The Pantone colour of the year for 2024 is peach fuzz, a delicate, soft and mellow colour made for relaxation and feel-good vibes. If you fancy giving your home a bit of an update this year, particularly if you're hoping to attract first-time buyers, read on for our tips on how to incorporate this dreamy hue into your home.
For those old enough to remember the last time peach was popular, it was back in the 1980's when everything from sofas to bathroom suites were available in a peach hue. Often associated with a cottagecore aesthetic, peach however brings warmth back to homes that might have spent many a year with dull grey walls or cold, minimal white walls.
The colour is particularly good for those who aren't keen on brighter hues and who may not want to go all-out in choosing an accent colour that stands out in a big way, making Peach Fuzz a great choice of colour to introduce into your home.

Pair it with neutral tones for a calm and harmonious atmosphere that's bang up to date.
