Peach Fuzz is Pantone’s 2024 Color of the Year

Pantone 2024 color of the year

Since 2017, Good Earth Plant Company has been keenly following Pantone’s Color of the Year. We keep current with design trends including color, so our projects fit current tastes and times, especially as we embrace the vibrancy of spring. 

Forward-thinking businesses need to stay current with design trends to create the best possible experience for their customers. This is the reason so many companies are incorporating the principles of biophilic design into their buildings, and why they’re keeping us busy at Good Earth Plant Company by adding workplace plants, living walls, and other natural design elements. This trend is particularly pertinent during spring when the essence of growth and renewal is celebrated, making it a perfect time for businesses to rejuvenate their spaces. 

Pantone dedicates six months to forecasting the Color of the Year, delving into emerging trends across fashion, cosmetics, home décor, paints, architecture, and even toy design. For 2024, Pantone has chosen Peach Fuzz (Pantone 13-1023), a color that embodies warmth and modern elegance. Laurie Pressman, Pantone’s Vice President, remarked that Peach Fuzz embodies “our desire to nurture ourselves and others”, highlighting themes of “caring and sharing, community and collaboration” which resonate deeply with the essence of spring.
