What does it make you think of?

“Summer sunsets, champagne, warm temperatures, baby snuggles, natural beauty and understated luxury.”

Can you see yourself using it?

“Yes, I can. Probably in future photography backdrops for my ceramics. I think it pairs really well with the light-textured tones of my glaze. I also like the idea of layered different tonal gradients of this shade.”

Why do you think Pantone chose it?

Because we’re still loving soft neutrals!

First impressions of Pantone’s Peach Fuzz?

“My first impression of the new colour is a feeling of cosiness and comfort, and something fresh like spring. It makes me think of warm and fuzzy things. And it is also playful and sweet; maybe it is a fancy cotton candy with a peachy taste.”

Can you see yourself using it?

“I would absolutely use it in my art and also in my choice of clothes like some soft peach colour fuzzy things.”

Why do you think Pantone chose it?

“Because it gives a very warm and loving feeling.”

Can you see yourself using it?

“In exactly this hue — no. But I do see myself using deeper tones of this colour, which can look very earthy and comforting.”

Why do you think Pantone chose it?

“In times when we’re collectively going through so much turmoil and upheaval, this fleshy peach tone almost nudges you to recalibrate and take a deep breath. It’s gentle, comforting and a little poetic. Who can say no to that?”

Lukas Peet, co-founder of Andlight

First impressions of Pantone’s Peach Fuzz?

“Positive, bright, uplifting.”

What does it make you think of?

“Morning sunrise, spring, warmth and freshness, citrus and crisp, vibrant sweet.”

Can you see yourself using it?

“Yes, I have been using this colour for years. As a lighting designer, this colour and hue remind me of a warm light 2000-2500K. Not used in the context of a paint or material but as light in a space.”

“Beyond using this colour as light, I could imagine it would also work well as an accent to bright and muted spaces to add some vibrancy.”

Why do you think Pantone chose it?

“Hopefully in the context of freshness, new beginnings, a brighter future.”

Carmen Ciesielski, home furnishings and design at Ikea

“According to Ikea’s recent Life at Home report, the most important aspect of an ideal home for Canadians is that it helps them unwind and relax.”

“When Canadians imagine their life in an ideal home, the top outcomes are feeling happy, relaxed and content, and secure. So the cheerful yet soft and relaxing colour of Peach Fuzz is a great fit.”

How would you use it?

“At Ikea, we have four key style groups that help us steer product development and range presentation. Peach Fuzz is a natural reflection of our Scandinavian modern and international modern styles; it’s modern and simple yet bold and playful. And I personally love modern design, so it fits my style.”

Kate Snyder, co-principal of Studio Roslyn

First impressions of Pantone’s Peach Fuzz?

“Love it. I find this colour acts as a neutral. It transitions so well depending on the other colours you pair with it.”

What does it make you think of?

One of our team’s favourite colours we consistently use in projects is Winthrop Peach from Benjamin Moore — a similar colour.

How would you use it?

We’ve used this colour in Just Another’s patio (cafe + bar), in Casa Versace’s home office, Casa Barrera’s ensuite, Bricklayer Brewing, La Bomba Floristry’s floors, and Qali Hair Salon.

Why do you think Pantone chose it?

“This is a ‘happy and healthy’ colour. I think the choosing of this colour is a reflection of the focus on our individual health and wellness.”
