Looking for colour inspiration for your next painting project? We’re always excited to know what trends and colours will emerge, or which beloved oldies will be making a dramatic comeback. That’s why we rounded up every colour of the year for 2024 so you don’t have to do the research.
One particular hue is taking the paint world by storm. Can you guess what it is?
Benjamin Moore: Blue Nova

Blue Nova is inspired by a new star forming in the sky and inspires a quest for adventure. This intriguing, yet reassuring and elevated colour works as a main colour palette, on an accent wall, or even on pieces of furniture throughout the house.

Sherwin-Williams describes their colour of the year as a “breezy and blissful blue.” Upward is reminiscent of ascending to a calmer state, of gazing into the sky on a clear day. It’s the perfect colour to add to a bedroom or bathroom.
Behr: Cracked Pepper

This deep, dynamic hue transcends modern, classic, casual, retro, and other decorating styles, while blending perfectly with other colours, finishes, patterns, and textures. Cracked Pepper will transform any space by enveloping the walls to create a striking impact and add a hint of sophistication.
Graham and Brown: Viridis

Viridis is a refreshing, earthy green that is both luxurious and calming. Green tones create a soothing atmosphere in any room, and Viridis is the perfect option if you’re looking to update your home. It looks great on walls or on furniture.

With this fresh, buttery yellow, Glidden claims that the possibilities are “limitless.” This hue is a great option if you are looking for a neutral tone but are tired of the usual greys and beiges. It’s bright without being overwhelming, and works great in any room (but we love it in a kitchen).

Thermal is a bright blue sky, a clear summer day, the vastness of a winter scenery, and anything else you want it to be. Although blues are cool colours, Thermal is still inviting and illuminating.
Valspar: Renew Blue

Renew Blue is a soothing tone that almost looks aquamarine and is reminiscent of retro decor and the colour trends of the 1950s. It is calming and luxurious, unique and classic all at once. It makes us feel like we’re basking in the sun. Envelop your bathroom or powder room in Renew Blue to add “seafoam-y” vibes or add accents and accessories throughout the house.
Mixwax: Bay Blue

A shade that feels like you’re plunging into the deep blue sea, Bay Blue is “intriguing, yet uncomplicated.” It looks great as an accent wall or painted over wood, and works in any room of your house.
Dunn Edwards: Skipping Stones

Skipping Stones is a serene and steely hue that lies somewhere between the blues and the greys. It adds a touch of modernism to any interior without overpowering the overall decor.

Bluebird is a bright colour that both comforts and uplifts. It’s unexpected and unique and is sure to turn heads. Use it to paint the outside of your house or add it as accents to contrast with more natural tones and textures.
HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams: Persimmon

The gentle yet uplifting energy that is created by this earthy, natural hue will look gorgeous wherever you decide to incorporate it. Persimmon is a terracotta and tangerine shade that adds warmth to any interior. We love it paired with other natural, earthy tones.
Dutch Boy: Ironside

The perfect backdrop for any decor style, Ironside is calming and welcoming. It is a deep olive shade, with rich and multidimensional tones. It compliments wood furniture and luxurious fabrics such as velvet.
Rust-Oleum: Chocolate Cherry

We’ve all witnessed the comeback of brown tones in fashion during the past couple of years, but what about brown as a paint colour? Rust-Oleum gives us a beautiful, deep brown that will make you feel like your home is a chocolate fountain. Contrast it with blues and greens or compliment it with natural tones.
