We are excited about Peach Fuzz, Pantone’s Colour of 2024. Here’s how to use it in your home!

Bring the nurturing shade of Peach Fuzz into your space with the Mutina Punto Down Rose tiles for a soft cocooning ambience

There’s no place like home. After the pandemic years and a bout of revenge travel, 2024 is going to be a year of coming back to basics and focusing on what is truly important – family, friends, and physical and mental well-being. Pantone, the influential US-based organisation which produces the proprietary colour chart used in many industries, has called the gentle Peach Fuzz its colour of the year for 2024. This shade of peach, which falls between pink and orange, is a soft, warming and delicate hue. It connotes a feeling of kindness and gentleness, compassion and empathy. The last time we might have seen it trending was in the 1980s, and Peach Fuzz could also bring about romantic, vintage undertones when used in modern homes as well. Call it peach, rose or salmon, this shade of pastel pink-orange has had increasing presence in the tile industry in recent years, a popular inclusion particularly in Mutina tile collections. It’s a complex shade that can be old school or very modern, depending on how you style it. Want to see how Peach Fuzz can transform your own space? Get your inspiration below!

Abacus Cipria

Peaches and cream are a classic pairing, but they look absolutely contemporary in a zig-zag pattern on the wall of this trendy cafe. Here, matte tiles in two colours, Calce (cream) and Cipria (peach), from the Abacus collection form the design. These subway tiles come in a size of 7.5cm by 20cm and bear the textures of traditional majolica with their gently undulating and softly imperfect surface. Abacus Cipria Plisse tiles which have a 3D ribbed texture and glossy surface clad the footboard under the banquette seats to continue the colour downwards. The tiles of the Abacus collection also come in 8 other bold hues.


Biscuit Terra

Use a darker shade of peach, such as the colour of traditional terracotta, in your home for a similar cocooning effect but with a grounded earthy appeal. We love the graphic style of the Biscuit collection, with its six different surfaces on 5cm by 20cm tiles. Besides the plain tile, there are embossed patterns of Waves, Strip and Stud, and 3D volumes of Peak and Dune. Pictured are the tiles in the Terra colour, combined in various ways to produce surfaces that play with light and shadow to create either subtle or dramatic visual statements. The collection also comes in three other colours.

Mutina Punto Rose 

The pastel peach colour might look a bit flat when plastered over a large surface, so how about adding some volume in the shape of dots? The Mutina Punto collection by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec captures the gentle spirit of Peach fuzz with its Rose shade, but with large raised or sunken dots on each 4cm by 31.5cm strip tile. The resulting surface is not just pretty, it’s also fun and whimsical. Punto is also available in four other colours and in a matte finish.

Mutina Tierras

Think Peach Fuzz but in a collage of colour variations. The Mutina Tierras collection delivers that with a range of terracotta-inspired unglazed porcelain stoneware in plain and printed versions. Designed by Patricia Urquiola, Tierras presents the natural, rich shades of primitive earth in designs that go with any contemporary furnishing scheme. Pictured above are tiles in the Triomix pattern, which come in a size of 120cm by 120cm.
