It’s official: a fresh assortment of hues have arrived to ring in the year ahead. From warm corals to deep greens and rich yellows, these paint colours will be adorning interior walls everywhere in 2024. So, get out your brushes and rollers and paint the rainbow.
Into the Deep
Meet Behr’s 2024 Colour of The Year — Cracked Pepper. Bold and luxurious, yet warm and inviting, this high-impact hue is surprising versatile. When thoughtfully employed, it can conform to any interior space or design style.
Calm and clear, this moody blue paint colour pulls its hues from the world around us. Look for a deep, dreamy blue that reminds you of the sky at dusk or the depths of the ocean. (Yep, we’re getting poetic over here.)
Bet on Brown
Yep, we’re going to say it: brown is the new black. A deep, rich brown paint colour gives a similar sophisticated feel as black paint — but with warmth. Behr’s Wild Mustang (N240-6) has a lovely gold undertone that pairs beautifully with soft yellows and creams.
In 2024, one painting trend we’re going to see is the rise of organic, textured walls — either by adding plaster and painting or letting the original underneath material shine through. Here, we can still see the grain of the shiplap ceiling and the peaks and troughs of the brick.
Neutrals are always going to have their place in the pantheon of paint colours, but for 2024, they’re going dark. A prime example is Benjamin Moore’s Bleeker Beige (HC-80), which blends medium buff with warm grey undertones for a great grounding effect.
Think pink will be passé next year? Think again. In 2024, this paint colour will be everywhere. Mauve, salmon and coral have long been desirable accent colours, but now they’re taking centre stage as the stars of the show.
Pulling inspiration from those quiet spots found in nature, this paint-colour trend is all about tranquility. Watery blues, soft sages and warm sunshine, these soft, milky pastels help create a space that prioritizes serenity. Pictured here is Behr’s Healing Aloe (S400-3).
As an on-trend paint colour, green’s star has been on the rise. But in 2024, it’s going to hit new (vibrant) heights… with an injection of yellow. Green citrine, Sherwin-Williams’ Chartreuse (SW 0073) and pear, these bold yellowy greens are fresh and fun — something we’re all craving right now!
Even if you don’t have your own berry patch, with this rich-raspberry paint trend you can still enjoy the fruits of your labour. Easy to pair with wood tones, creams and browns, Behr’s Raspberry Crush (M120-7) is a sweet example of berry-red done right.
With a blend of creamy terracotta, saffron and dried citrus fruits, this on-trend paint palette exudes warmth and wellness. For the ideal base colour for this sunbaked look, Sherwin-Williams’ Redend Point (SW 9081) is en pointe.
Emerald green, with its bold, saturated tones, is right on track to be the latest green to rule the decor scene. Tranquil and luxurious, this gem-inspired green is a great choice for an accent wall or creating depth in a smaller space.
Even More Yellow
We’re all hoping for sunnier days ahead, and no colour is more optimistic than yellow. With bold gold, sunshine yellow and butter beige (see Dunn-Edwards Paints Honey Glow DE5354) all being trending paint colour options for our interior walls, the future is bright.
