Pantone Colour ofthe Year 2024

For almost 60 years, the Pantone Color Institute has been instrumental in creating a language of colour which can be used across a wide range of industries – from designers, brands and manufacturing companies. It is probably the most important colour-matching system in the world and it ensures that whatever the product or company, everyone involved in a project will be working with the exact same colour.

Every year they also play a pivotal role in predicting seasonal colours, from influencing fashion trends on the catwalk which filters down to the high street, to interior design and decorations.

Just as we have seen in the world of flowers, colour plays a powerful role in our emotions and in conveying different messages. Warm tones consist of oranges, reds and yellows and are said to evoke feelings of happiness, joy and even passion. Cool colours are the calm and relaxing ones and are tones of blues, greens and light purple.

We’ve rounded up all you need to know about 2024’s chosen colour and what flowers are the perfect match.

Pantone Colour of the Year 2024: Peach Fuzz

Drum roll please, it’s time to embrace the warmth and share some kindness because in 2024 we're all going crazy for Peach Fuzz. If you hadn’t guessed from its name, this one is all about heartfelt peach hues.

So, what colour is Peach Fuzz exactly? Nestled cosily between pink and orange, this colour isn’t too sharp a turn from last year’s Colour of the Year Viva Magenta (link to new 2023 page when live).

Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director at Pantone Colour Institute sums it up beautifully: “A cosy peach hue softly nestled between pink and orange, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz brings belonging, inspires recalibration, and an opportunity for nurturing, conjuring up an air of calm, offering us a space to be, feel, and heal and to flourish from whether spending time with others or taking the time to enjoy a moment by ourselves.”

In Pantone’s 25th year of choosing colours, Peach Fuzz emits that perfect vintage vibe. Yet, it has enough of a twist that gives it a lightness and softness to perfectly represent the world today.

Let’s be honest, a pop of peach is just what we all to brighten up our days. Bring it into your home and it's guaranteed to deliver a burst of happiness. Just like the spring shades it delivers, it reminds us of good health and new beginnings; a chance to reframe our lives and decide what is important to us.

Have we convinced you to add a touch of Peach Fuzz into your lives? You’re in luck because the flower world is simply awash with blooms in shades of this colour. However, getting the exact colour of Peach Fuzz might be a little hard to pin down. That’s because with peach flowers, sometimes they look a little apricot in colour and sometimes slightly more salmon. Read on to find out some of our favourite peach flowers.

Joyful Blush

Did you know that this year's Pantone Colour of the Year is Peach Fuzz? We've taken inspiration from this trending colour palette to create a fabulously peachy bunch - peach roses are paired with peach carnations, pink alstroemeria and orange tulips. Add some sunshine to any space with this joyful spring bouquet, to make you feel fuzzy and warm inside.

Let’s start with the stunning Zantedeschia ‘cameo’ calla lily which just about sums up the true colour of Peach Fuzz. You could then add in some firm favourites, such as peach carnations paired with Aazur Peach ranunculus. Ta da, you've a gorgeous bouquet for Mother’s Day.

Next up is the fabulous rose which is available in every shade of peach imaginable. You could go with The Lady Gardener, or the slightly pinker The Lark Ascending, or the perfectly peach colour of Charmant. Failing that have a look at Port Sunlight which is a flat rose with a dark centre and pales towards the edges. Absolutely blissful for a summer wedding!

For a birthday bouquet that manages to deliver every shade of peach, why not pick Prince of Orange sweet pea mixed in with achiellea Summer Fruits Salmon. You could even pop in some white scabious Caucasia to tie the look together.

If you’re looking for some blooms that will gently bring in the last part of the year, choose the aptly named Peaches and Vanilla dahlia. Or you could opt for the incredibly gorgeous pompom shape of Sweet Suzanne in your vase. Mix these with the red of Dark Spirit and violet of Bristol Stripe and it delivers all the autumn tones.

Embrace the Warmth

This year, Pantone was very careful to choose a colour for 2024 that represents a feeling of unity and shared that “The colour is one whose warm and welcoming embrace conveys a message of compassion and whose cosy sensibility brings people together and enriches the soul.” The colour for 2024 communicates compassion, sharing and hopes for a peaceful future. Basically it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy inside! These feelings of warmth are also perhaps also linked to the fact that Peach Fuzz is such a tactile colour – it’s like a warm hug – with Pantone sharing that thay have seen “an increased focus on community and people across the world reframing how they want to live and evaluating what is important – that being the comfort of being close to those we love.”

During a time of turmoil for many, Pantone also felt Peach Fuzz reflected our need for empathy. These feelings of compassion are something that we fully undertsand here at Flying Flowers and it’s for this very reason that we are proud to support Marie Curie as our charitable partner. Marie Curie nurses not only provide hands-on care for people living with terminal illness, but they also offer the vital emotional support and companionship they and their families need. With your support, we can help raise money for Marie Curie so their nurses can be with those who need it to the end, whatever the illness.

Add some warmth to your home, whatever the weather, with seasonal peach flowers.
