13-1023 Peach Fuzz Pantone.com
Well it’s almost the new year again and time to look at the 2024 Color Trends and how to update your home with color! The last year has seen many of my clients leaning toward earth hues, especially greens and some blues. Think mid-tone pastels, but muted earth tones are still in the forefront too. Along with whites, off-whites, creams, and light neutrals, we’re seeing requests for lighter warm grays, dark browns and charcoal blacks, updated sandy beiges (not yellowy beiges), and grayed greens as well as deep greens, all shades and tones of blue, and muted oranges and peaches, like HGTV’s Persimmon and Pantone’s Peach Fuzz.
SW 6239 Upward Sherwin-Williams.com
One of the first reveals was Sherwin Williams SW 6239 Upward. Their website describes it as “a breezy, blissful blue. The color found when we slow down, take a breath, and allow the mind to clear.” Slowing down and giving our minds breathing space cultivates creativity, a sense of peace, and well-being. Upward is a light blue from the Purple-Bue hue family. Bringing a calming blue into a bedroom, a sitting room, or a meditation room helps us carve a much-needed space into our lives.
Rich Worldly Blues
Next up, Benjamin Moore announced their reveal date and kept customers in suspense. They finally announced 825 Blue Nova, a medium blue also from the Purple-Blue hue family along with a coordinating palette described on their website as “softly saturated with a nuanced approach to contrast, the Benjamin Moore Color Trends 2024 palette takes inspiration from the hues experienced through travels and moments that span beyond routine. On adventures near or far, we encourage collecting poignant color moments with verve and personality that are unexpected and boundlessly magical.” Travel increased in 2022 and again in 2023. With 2024 travelers expected to increase the trend further, Benjamin Moore created a palette inspired from around the world. Colorful spaces in our homes will remind us of the colors in our travels. Art chosen from special places can be a starting point for more chromatic schemes in our homes.
PPU18-01 Cracked Pepper Behr.com
Finally, Behr’s 2024 Color of the Year is Cracked Pepper PPU18-01, “a versatile soft black” which can be used in a whole room to make a statement or as an accent to create a distinctive look. The coordinating palette ranges from light neutrals like Even Better Beige DC-010 to dark, saturated colors like the muted-wine color Rumors MQ1-15.
