Blue continues its reign as a timeless choice for interior spaces. You can expect to see a range of blues, from calming and muted shades reminiscent of tranquil waters to bold, deep blues that add a touch of drama. Check out a few blue-toned 2024 Colour of the Year, including Sherwin-Williams’ Upward, Benjamin Moore’s Blue Nova, and Valspar’s Renew Blue.
2. Earthy Greens
As seen in 2023, 2024 continues to celebrate our connection with nature, and earthy greens reflect this harmonious relationship. Mossy greens, olive tones, and muted sage bring the beauty of the outdoors inside, creating a sense of calm and balance. They work exceptionally well in bedrooms, home offices, and kitchens. Take inspiration from Graham & Brown’s colour of the year, Viridis.
3. Lustrous Yellows and Oranges
Inject some vibrancy into your living spaces with lustrous yellows and oranges. Whether used as accent walls or as pops of colour in artwork and accessories, these shades can invigorate any room. Sico’s Satin and BeautiTone’s Illumina are just a few examples.
4. Soft Blacks
Black is back but in a softer, more versatile form. Soft blacks are elegant, sophisticated, and mysterious, making them an excellent choice for accent walls, cabinetry, and ceilings. Pair soft blacks with whites and light neutrals for a timeless and balanced look. The most well-known of these rich shades is Behr’s Colour of the Year, Cracked Pepper.
5. Pinks and Reds
For those seeking to make a statement, bold pinks and reds are in vogue for 2024. These hues exude passion and confidence and can be captivating focal points in living areas. Deep reds (HGTV Home by Sherwin-Wiliams, Dark Auburn) and rich pinks can add a touch of drama, while lighter shades like Sashay Sand create an inviting and playful atmosphere.
