Julia and Nick met in 2016 during what they now refer to as ‘The Summer of Love.’ “I was getting ready for my senior year at the University of Michigan. I had an internship at Booz Allen Hamilton in Washington D.C. and found a sublet to stay at with some girls from George Washington University,” Julia remembers. The night after she moved in, her new roommate invited her to a house party across the street. New to the city and up for meeting people, she gladly accepted. “I walked in and quickly realized I was an outsider. Everyone knew each other and went to GWU,” Julia says. She would also learn that the house they were at was nicknamed ‘The Barn’ and among its residents was Nick, a soon-to-be senior interning at a lobbying firm. Nick was immediately drawn to Julia – they ended up talking the whole night and said ‘goodbye’ by exchanging numbers.

Caroline and Darius first met during their first year of college in New York City – she was going to FIT, and he was going to NYU. The sparks were apparent to both, so much so that Darius went home to tell his roommate (and best friend) that he had just met the woman he was going to marry. But it wasn’t until after both had studied abroad for a year that Caroline and Darius were able to truly connect. “We met up again at a New Year’s Eve party, and we have been inseparable ever since,” Caroline recalls. “I think we both knew immediately – it felt this was the way it was supposed to be.”

If you were to imagine a painterly sunset vista, a picture awash with graduating pink and orange may come to mind. Sauntering throughout the composition, harmonizing its alluring scheme is Peach Fuzz, Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2024. Where as last year’s color, Viva Magenta, announced itself in dramatic fashion, Peach Fuzz greets with soft caress. Pantone Color Institute Executive Director Leatrice Eiseman elaborates:

“In seeking a hue that echoes our innate yearning for closeness and connection, we chose a color radiant with warmth and elegance. A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless.”
