Peach-colored tiles are about to have a moment thanks to Pantone’s Color of the Year (COTY) pick for 2024.
Pantone’s annual proclamation sets the tone (pun intended) for influencing color trends ranging from fashion to interiors.
What Is Pantone?
Pantone LLC is historically well-known for the Pantone Matching System (PMS), a standardized color matching system used to assign unique alphanumeric codes to colors for consistent use of specific color.
The PMS system allows designers, and those who print or produce products, to precisely reproduce colors, which is crucial for color accuracy in branding and logo use.
Importance of the Pantone COTY
Because of Pantone’s long-standing trust as experts in the color reproduction world, the Pantone COTY holds significance as a trendsetter for color choices in diverse design fields. Designers and marketers from fashion and beauty to home decor and product packaging pay close attention to this selection and often incorporate the COTY into their products, marketing materials, and overall design strategies to stay current and appealing to consumers.
The COTY often reflects broader cultural, social and environmental influences. The selection process considers global trends, societal shifts and recent events, making the color a reflection of the year’s defining mood. Incorporating the most recent COTY allows companies align their products and marketing campaigns with the latest trends to appear modern, relevant, and in tune with consumer preferences.
Pantone COTY 2024: Peach Fuzz
This year’s color is PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz, described by Pantone as a color reflecting our desire to nurture both ourselves and others — an important reminder during global turmoil.
Peach Fuzz is soft and velvety looking. It’s a gentle tone that’s not only easy on the eyes, but is also meant to enrich the mind, body and soul.
“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and modern elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.” — Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman, Pantone Color Institute
Peach is a calming, yet cheerful color to incorporate into your home or business and ceramic tile offers many hue and style variations. Peachy pinks and corals, as well as brilliant peach tones, work well in a variety of applications.
- Peachy pink instills gentle energy into spaces
- Pastel peach embodies quiet strength, serenity, and sophistication
- Earthy peach adds warm, neutral tones
- Punchy peach provides electric optimism
- Vibrant peach works well as an accent color or for feature walls (take note of 2023’s COTY, Viva Magenta)
