Peach Fuzz!

Pantone released their colour of the year for 2024 as Peach Fuzz. They have described this as a soft colour sitting between pink and orange, Peach Fuzz is meant to express kindness, compassion and connection as we move forward into what we hope will be a peaceful new year.

With these characteristics in mind, for this month's blog we have picked out some of our favourite ways in which to create a cosy and peaceful atmosphere, in the hopes to inspire your next interiors project with an injection of peach fuzz!

Home accessories

Soft furnishings are a fantastic way of adding in a new colour without having to commit to re-painting a room. Cushions for example are a fail safe option for trying a new colour or pattern inexpensively. Explore through your choice of cushions not only new colours, patterns and textures, but also how you can change up your interiors with the seasons. Heavily textured or even faux fur cushions are fantastic for the winter months, while printed cotton fabrics make for beautiful summer cushions. Layering cushions of the same colour palette but in differ fabrics creates a lovely mix of texture, as seen here on this bed we adorned with a gorgeous mix of peach fuzz coloured cushions.


Colour schemes

Pastel colours are perfect for if you are wanting to add colour to a room but are worried about choosing something too bold that you could grow out of. Duck egg blue is the type of pastel that can work with almost all neutral colours and mixes well with others such as yellow, green and peachy pinks. Pastel colour schemes always feel calming and help to create a tranquil atmosphere, making them perfect for bedroom schemes. Consider using pastels in a variety of interior items, from curtains, to bedding and even upholstery. As your colour scheme will be very light you can add in several different colours and not have to worry about creating anything too bold or bright.


Trimmings

Often overlooked and underappreciated, trimmings are now making a comeback and we think they’re a great way to add a unique touch to your interiors. Whether that be a peachy pink fringe on a cushion, a geometric border on a blind, or even tassels round the bottom of your occasional chair. Think of trimmings as an accessory adding that perfect final touch to your outfit. Peach fuzz being so light in colour would work perfectly as a trim on any soft furnishing that is bold in colour or highly patterned. Choosing something more subdued to edge a curtain or sofa for example, can help soften a bold design and also enable you to update that piece with modern colours and textures.
