Peach Fuzz: The Pantone Color of the Year

If you're looking to infuse a sense of freshness and warmth into your living space, nothing does it better than Peach Fuzz, the Pantone Color of the Year. In this article, we will explore the meaning and inspiration behind this choice, taking a glimpse into Pantone's process of selecting the Color of the Year and uncovering the fascinating history behind the global authority on color.

The Meaning Behind Peach Fuzz

Leatrice Eiseman, the Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute, guides us through the intrinsic meaning of Peach Fuzz. She describes this color as a reflection of our innate desire for connection and closeness. This radiant tone brings with it an enveloping warmth and modern elegance, creating an atmosphere of compassion that embraces both the young and the eternal.

Choosing the Color of the Year

The question arises: how does Pantone choose the Color of the Year? Behind this decision lies a careful and accurate process. The Pantone Color Institute relies on a combination of trend research, social analysis, and reflections on the global mood. The goal is to identify a color that not only reflects the current aesthetic but also encapsulates the emotions and aspirations of society.

The History of Pantone

Founded in 1962 by Lawrence Herbert, Pantone has deep roots in the world of color. Initially providing color identification systems for the printing industry, the company has expanded its role over the years, becoming a global authority in the field of color. Pantone has influenced design, fashion, art, and many other industries.
