On-Trend Paint Colors for 2024

On-Trend Paint Colors for 2024

Embracing the Pendulum Swing: From Bold to Serene

As I moved into my new home last year, I couldn't help but notice how much paint color trends have evolved over time. My previous abode was stuck in the 80s and 90s, with each room a drastically different hue - a bold, almost unnatural mix of intense shades. But now, it seems the pendulum is swinging in a new direction.

For a while, the trend was all about having a different bold color in every room. Then, we gracefully transitioned into the era of all-gray walls and white trim - a look that's still quite popular and frequently chosen by home remodelers. But after too many icy blue-gray surprises and a collective case of the "blahs" from the sameness, the whole gray-on-gray craze appears to be shifting.

Don't get me wrong, I still love a good gray room. But these days, I recommend opting for a more neutral gray, one that's not too heavy on the blue or red-pink undertones, to keep it feeling fresh and modern.

The Rise of the All-White Movement

I'll admit it - I'm fully on board with the all-white wall color trend. Back in 2019, I remodeled a home and painted every inch of it in the crisp, clean hue of Chantilly Lace, and my love for this neutral white is still going strong.

Pulling off an all-white look can feel a bit risky, but I Living Homes has some fantastic tips to help you nail it. The key is finding the right neutral white that feels fresh and clean, not too creamy or warm. I'm seeing more and more homeowners lean in this direction, opting for those cooler, modern white tones over the cozier, warmer shades that may have felt dated.

Embracing Nature-Inspired Hues

Another emerging 2024 wall color trend that's caught my eye is the move towards more organic, modern colors. This includes a delightful blend of dark and light shades, all while embracing the beauty of nature. Think deep, moody blacks contrasted with crisp whites, earthy greens, and soothing natural blues.

Both Sherwin-Williams' Upward and Benjamin Moore's Nova have selected stunning blue shades as their 2024 Colors of the Year, which I see working best as accent walls or in smaller rooms like bathrooms and studies. Paired with organic textures and natural materials, these blues can completely transform a space.

Embracing the Dark Side (of Paint Colors)

As a self-proclaimed member of the black paint fan club, I'm thrilled to see this moody hue continuing to gain popularity as an interior wall color trend. When used strategically and combined with the other elements I've mentioned, a true neutral black can be an absolute showstopper, completely transforming a room.

The trick is finding the right black paint - not too blue, not too brown. I Living Homes has a fantastic guide on Neutral Paint Colors for Any Home that you'll definitely want to check out if you're considering a moody black accent wall.

Embracing Contrast

An overarching theme for 2024 wall color trends seems to be contrast - whether that's crisp white walls with a bold black accent, or darker cabinetry and doors paired with lighter wall tones. This interplay of light and dark, warm and cool, really helps to elevate a space and add visual interest.

If you're looking for more ways to incorporate contrast into your home, I Living Homes' guide on Adding Contrast is a must-read. From paint colors to furnishings and decor, they've got tons of practical tips to take your design game to the next level.

Embracing the Future, One Color at a Time

As a home stylist, I always hesitate to jump wholeheartedly onto any trend bandwagon. But I have to admit, I'm loving the more modern, authentic approach to 2024 wall color trends. There's a sense of balance and harmony, a yin-and-yang that feels both timeless and freshly-minted.

Whether you're drawn to the crisp, all-white aesthetic, the moody allure of black, or the soothing embrace of nature-inspired hues, these emerging paint color trends offer endless possibilities to help you create the home of your dreams. So why not embrace the future, one brushstroke at a time?
