Have you ever walked into a space where you felt an immediate sense of calming, inspiring, and peaceful energy? The secret behind this effect often lies in a simple yet powerful element: color!

For a quick and effective way to transform your Camden apartment, start by thinking of what kind of mood you want to achieve, then take some time to research a color or two that emits that feeling or emotion.

Marking its 25th year, Pantone announced Peach Fuzz (Pantone 13-1023) as its Color of the Year for 2024! As the leader of color matching, Pantone chooses one color a year to bridge the gap between colors and culture. Colors can speak louder than words, and Pantone’s goal is to increase the understanding of the deeper meaning behind a specific color.

You’re probably wondering, then, why Peach Fuzz?

Peach Fuzz – The Why?

Whether you’re looking to transform a dull corner into a vibrant nook or create a sense of serenity, the right color will work wonders for your apartment.

Leatrice Eiseman, the executive director of the Pantone Color Institute, explained, “We selected Peach Fuzz very thoughtfully because it's the tactile aspect of the color that's so very important as well as the vision of the color.” This delicate shade of color falls between pink and orange, and although it may seem hard to decorate at first, it’s quite achievable!

Where to Start?

When incorporating the delicate hue of peach fuzz into your apartment, the key is to start small and build from there. Begin by selecting a few accent pieces that introduce this soft, inviting color without overwhelming your existing décor.

You can gather inspiration for your space by checking out your Camden amenities, resident lounge, or even the leasing office to help build a vision that you can translate into your apartment home!

Consider adding throw pillows, a cozy blanket, or even wall art to create subtle pops of color. If you’re feeling more adventurous, you might opt for a statement piece like an accent chair or a small area rug.

Balancing these additions with neutral tones like white, beige, or grey will help maintain a harmonious look, allowing the peach fuzz elements to shine without clashing with your current style.

Remember, the goal is to enhance your space with a touch of warmth and softness rather than completely transforming it all at once.
