Continue reading for Bluethumb’s Head of Art Advisory and in-house Interior Designer, Alexandra Guglielmino, tips and tricks to infuse your space with 2024’s Colour of the Year!

Style Peach Fuzz Like a Pro

With its warm, comforting tone, Peach Fuzz is a versatile colour that can bring a sense of tranquillity to your home. A year-round colour, it effortlessly transitions with the changing seasons, from bright and airy in the spring to cozy and warm in the winter. “Styling with Peach Fuzz is all about embracing the ‘less is more’ philosophy,” advises Alexandra. She emphasises the importance of infusing colour into a space without overwhelming it.

1. Paint a Feature Wall

“A feature wall is the most effective way to introduce Peach Fuzz to your home’s interior,” says Alexandra. “To create a balanced design, it’s best to pair this striking focal point with neutral furniture and decor, such as whites, greys, and beiges.” These subdued tones create a clean and elegant backdrop, allowing Peach Fuzz to stand out as the room’s central focus.

2. Style Soft Furnishings and Decorations

“You can add a touch of Peach Fuzz to your room by scattering its soft hues throughout,” says Alexandra. For example, soft furnishings like throw pillows on couches and chairs are a subtle yet impactful way to add colour. “Opt for small decor elements like Emma Young’s glass vases, candles, or even a Peach Fuzz rug.” Subtle hints of peach create a harmonious design that feels modern and timeless.

4. Add Complimentary and Contrasting Colours

Alexandra says, “Light pastel green and pinks enhance [Peach Fuzz]. While contrasting colours –navy blue, dark grey and burgundy– add depth and richness.” Take the artworks photographed below, for example, and see how the artists’ palette influences the vibrancy of Peach Fuzz.

Wooden furniture and decorative elements can add an organic feel to the space, creating a balanced and inviting atmosphere. “Framing your artwork in natural oak is an easy way to enhance Peach Fuzz’s warm, soothing tones,” says Alexandra. For an extra layer of visual intrigue, she suggests mixing and matching patterns, being careful not to overwhelm the space.
