More Than a Tasty Fruit: Embrace Persimmon, HGTV's Color of the Year


Persimmon trees are a true marvel this time of the year, with their leafless branches becoming a canvas for the vibrant fruits that hang elegantly, stealing the spotlight with their captivating color.

In Gridley, where Dianne grew up, it's not common to drive by orchards of the delicious beauties. It's a favorite winter treat!

Now step into the world of interior design with a burst of energy and warmth as HGTV unveils its Color of the Year for 2024 – the captivating 'Persimmon.' Orange is my favorite color (Dianne is not too keen about the vibrancy) but this hue is a very approachable version. I love it!


Let’s explore creative ways to incorporate Persimmon into your home, adding a touch of modern elegance to your living environment.

Here are a few ideas.

Create an Inviting Entrance: A Persimmon-colored front door not only adds curb appeal but also says, “Welcome.” Pair it with neutral exterior tones to let the vibrant shade shine.


Accent Walls: One of the simplest and most impactful ways to introduce Persimmon is by creating an accent wall. Choose a focal point in a room – whether it's the wall behind your sofa, the fireplace, or in the entryway behind a console table – and paint it this lively shade. The result is an instant pop of color that elevates the entire space.

Statement Furniture: For those who prefer a subtler approach, consider incorporating Persimmon through statement furniture pieces. A bold sofa might be pricey, but accent chairs, or a vibrant coffee table can transform your living spaces.


Accessories and Decor: Infuse Persimmon into your decor through accessories like throw pillows, rugs, and curtains. These accents can add warmth to a room without overwhelming the space. Mix and match with complementary colors like muted greens, navy blues, or soft grays to create a well-balanced aesthetic. Sherwin Williams has a great color palette to complement Persimmon.


Kitchen Delight: Revitalize your kitchen by introducing Persimmon elements. This could be achieved through small appliances, dish ware, bar stools or even a carefully chosen backsplash. Pairing Persimmon with neutral tones in the kitchen creates an inviting atmosphere.

Artwork and Wall Decor: Elevate your walls with Persimmon-colored artwork or wall decor. Whether it's a vibrant painting, wall decals, or framed prints, adding this lively hue to your walls can make a delightful change.


Outdoor Oasis: Extend the vibrancy to your outdoor spaces by incorporating Persimmon in your patio furniture, cushions, or even as an accent color for your outdoor cushions and rugs. This lively shade will make your outdoor areas feel welcoming.

The Takeaway


Embracing HGTV's Color of the Year, 'Persimmon,' allows you to infuse your home with a burst of energy and warmth. From accent walls to statement furniture and accessories, there are countless ways to incorporate this lively hue into your living spaces.
