Pantone's Colour of the Year, Peach Fuzz
The arrival of a new year is concurrent with the announcement of Pantone’s Colour of the Year and this January is no different! As the leading global colour authority, Pantone celebrates the 25th anniversary of this yearly anticipated announcement by heralding Peach Fuzz as the hue that will influence brands, trends and industries for the year ahead.
A quietly sophisticated colour with contemporary ambience, Peach Fuzz is warm, nurturing and enriching and a dramatic contrast to last year’s, Viva Magenta. Described by Pantone as a shade which “captures our desire to nurture ourselves and others” it is a velvety gentle peach tone which effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.
At Coco & Wolf we not only love the unexpected sherbet-inspired hue taking centerstage but the meaning behind Pantone’s selection. Delving into our human desires for togetherness and nurturing, this cosy and inviting tone works perfectly in enhancing sanctuary-like spaces, think beautiful bedding and cosy quilts, and as part of convivial gatherings as table linen and sumptous cushions.
“Peach Fuzz awakens our senses to the comforting presence of tactility and cocooned warmth”
Leatrice Eiseman, executive director at the Pantone Colour Institute
Peach Fuzz Palettes
We love nothing more than empowering our customers to embrace new colour combinations and print pairings in their homes. Peach Fuzz can illuminate any room and its cocooning nature lends itself particularly well to living spaces and bedrooms, whether introduced in bold, statement-making colour blocks or in more subtle references across accessories and soft furnishings. When thinking about combinations, this soft peach hue works in harmony with rust, turquoise, yellow and navy, and creates dynamism when used together with pinks and greens.
Tones of peach feature abundantly across Liberty’s stunning fabrics, making curating triumphant palettes a breeze. Here we’re highlighting fabrics which are already used in Coco & Wolf collections or, perhaps most excitingly, will be coming soon to our beautiful products. A glimpse into the future, because January always needs some extra joy! If you’re considering illuminating your bedding, homewares and table linen with this year’s must-have colour then look no further.
Inspired by a plethora of hollyhocks found in a typical English cottage garden, Hollyhocks mixes watercolour tones of peach, turquoise and lemon on a grey-green background, creating a dreamy allover pattern tilled with gentle nuances of light and shadow. Coming soon to Coco & Wolf.
A Coco & Wold favourite, Linen Garden features an array of florals in a riot of colour, including pretty peach highlights, with texture added through layers of gouache, applied thickly. Available now at Coco & Wolf.
New to Coco & Wolf for Spring Summer 2024, Astrid Niva features charming illustrations of bluebells, in a design first created and printed for Liberty in 1965. Miniature berries, leaves, roses, tulips, daisies and morning glory flowers are densely packed together, appearing like twinkling jewels strewn across the fabric, in shades of peach, yellow, aquamarine and pale blue. Coming soon to Coco & Wolf.
Inspired by the luminous shades of Liberty’s early Art Silks from the 1880s, Archive Swatch captures a spectrum of hypnotic stripes and tactile textures. Calm yet contrasting, its planes of colour explore spatial relationships through the illusion of optical vibrations. Coming soon to Coco & Wolf.
