The official Pantone colour of 2024 is ‘Peach Fuzz’. It’s a delicately warm orangey-pink hue that’s calming and reassuring.

Geum ‘’Totally Tangerine’ in flower.

It’s a colour reminiscent of sunrise or a nice summer’s day, says Lauren Labrecque, a marketing researcher specializing in colour at the University of Rhode Island.

Labrecque says, adding that after years of conflicts, crises and economic struggles, there’s a yearning in the air for something soothing and warm. This year’s softly bright shade, she says, “sort of captures the zeitgeist: moving forward, hoping to focus more on positivity and warmth.”
