Green has been famous in interior design for years—and it’s not going anywhere in 2024. We can expect to see darker shades of the colour in interiors across the world, for example, forest and olive green. The nature-inspired feeling of these shades gives them a calming effect, and people especially love the sense of comfort they bring to their interiors.

Along with deep greens, earthy and muted tones are expected to make a splash in the coming year. This is because they add a sense of stability and groundness to interior design—all while creating a soothing atmosphere.

Colour of the Year 2024 announced by Graham & Brown: Viridis, a midtone green



Whether it’s a light dusty blue or a deep navy shade, this colour is going to be one of the best in 2024. Very simply, blue will never lose its popularity because of its innate connection with Mother Nature. It is equal parts sophisticated and earthy, adding elegance to any space.

Light shades of blue can make a room feel spacious and airy. You can use them to create a tranquil kitchen or spa-like bathroom—and even a fun kids’ room. Light blue is also a great colour to mix and match all across the home.

If you’re someone who looks to the sky when thinking of blue, 2024 is going to be your year! Mixtures of violet and blue—similar to the bright blue sky you adore—are one of the top colour trends in interior design for 2024.

Other brands that chose similar shades for the colour of the year 2024 are Minwax, C2, and Dunn-Edwards—blue really is one of the top picks for the coming year.

A warm and earthy tone set to do big in 2024 is brown. This colour adds coziness to any interior—and keeps the palette somewhat neutral—while adding to the visual interest. Mushroom brown, taupe, mocha… the possibilities are endless! Plus, if you opt for dark browns, you can add drama to your space (without using black).

Colour of the Year 2024 announced by Rust Oleum: Chocolate Cherry, a warm brown colour with red undertones

For some, Chocolate Cherry may be too bold for their liking. If that’s the case, step down various tones and shift to soft buttercream hues that are versatile and work for every room. These are especially suitable to use as a paint colour across the home.

Yellows and oranges, when blended together, can create a head-turning statement in your home. Their luminous beauty can invite and captivate—especially when showcased in textiles and accent pieces. Our favourite would be using these colours for solid and fun-printed cushions.

With warmth becoming the new ‘wellness’, these blazing yet mystical colours are securing their spot on the top colour trends in interior design for 2024. Plus, as people are looking towards their homes for comfort and ease, the warm tones of soft yellows and oranges give them the safe haven they crave in cool-hued interiors.

Moody Tones

Dark, moody colours—especially jewel tones—rightfully continue to enjoy their position among the top colour trends in interior design, even in 2024. They lend an elegant yet dramatic touch to any space while keeping the atmosphere sophisticated.

While we love a black accent wall (or ceiling), not everyone may be ready to immediately commit to such a dark colour. If you’re hesitating, consider adding moody tones through accents, such as arts and crafts, or by painting an old piece of furniture. When you live with the colour in your space for a while, you will be more sure of your decision to commit to it.

Some jewel tones famous in interior design are sapphire, emerald, and ruby—each one of them has its own unique presence and can instantly add drama to your space.

Pinks and Reds

Barbie’s reign over culture will continue in 2024 as we see vivacious shades of pink becoming dominant in interior design. And, despite not being talked about since the 90s, red and terracotta shades are also making their way into colour trends. These warm and energizing hues are great to add personality—and also contribute to the ‘dopamine decor’ trend becoming all the rage in 2024.

We particularly love the surge of light and dusty shades of pink, perfect for adding tranquility to any room of your home. These are great shades to use for the entire paint palette of a space without overwhelming it—a task earlier achieved with neutrals.

Pinky peaches are also having their moment in 2024. Choosing light versions of the colour add a romantic feel to your space—reminding you to slow down and enjoy the moment.

Colour of the Year 2024 announced by Pantone: Peach Fuzz, a compassionate soft peach shade

When adding reds, consider choosing textiles to serve the purpose. For example, bedding sets and throws.

Final Words

A sense of comfort and belonging drives design decisions—especially those involving the top colour trends in interior design for 2024. The colours for 2024, as announced by different brands, can make for great picks while decorating your home in the upcoming year. But if they don’t exactly resonate with your personality, you can use them simply for design inspiration, too! Come up with your own personal favourites and curate a palette of your own, so your interior speaks to who you are 🤍

P.S— If you love whites, fret not! Neutrals may be taking a step back in 2024, but whites with warm undertones, such as vanilla and cream, are still being wholeheartedly welcomed.
