It’s hard to believe, but 2024 is almost here — and with a new year comes new color trends! Popular paint brands like Sherwin-Williams, Behr, and others have already named their “colors of the year,” with picks including various shades of blue, honey beige, and even charcoal hues. No matter which color you like, here are ways you can make the most of new paint colors in 2024.
Start with a Focal Point
When deciding on a color for a room, it’s best to start with a grounding item or reference point. This focal point could be as simple as a throw pillow or piece of furniture, or it could derive from a specific pattern or family heirloom. Building a color profile around a tangible object creates a story for your color selection, and instantly makes your space more cohesive and memorable.
Mix it Up
Color plays an important role in building a sense of cohesion throughout your home. However, you shouldn’t be afraid to mix things up in some spaces. The use of accent colors can make a bold statement or draw attention to a particular part of the house. For example, many of the shades of blue that have been chosen as “color of the year” selections can really pop when used near white surfaces, making them perfect for cabinets, doors, and other accent areas.
The use of color also establishes a mood for each room, helping to further round out your interior design. The right color selection can help a room feel bright and welcoming for social gatherings, or peaceful and cozy to create a refuge from the outside world. Consider how different colors make you feel to create the right vibe for your home.
