If you're seeking design or DIY inspiration for your next paint project, dive right in!


  1. Medium Blue - "I am expecting to see more moody blues in 2024. Not the deep navy's of the past, but medium hue's like Sherwin-Williams' Interesting Aqua. It's an updated way to add some drama without the room feeling totally cave-like." — Allison Garrison of Allito Spaces
  2. Rich Brown - "The new year is set to embrace a rich tapestry of warm earthy tones, creating a design landscape that feels both grounded and inviting. The spotlight will be on the bold entrance of rich brown, adding depth and sophistication to the design scene." — Ginger Curtis, CEO and founder of Urbanology Designs
  3. Earthy Green - "Green is having a moment and I'm here for it. There is something about its warmth, depth and connotation of nature that makes it a go-to color when selecting paint. My favorites are Farrow & Ball’s Breakfast Room Green (featured here), Beverly and Studio Green." — Jason Saft, interior designer, luxury stager and CEO of Staged to Sell Home
  4. Rich Neutrals - "Comfy neutrals are here to stay. And by neutral, I don't just mean white and cream — It’s more of a relaxed palette, featuring mellow colors like light rust, olive, warm coral and rich browns." — Christine Vroom of Christine Vroom Interiors
  5. Pastel Green - "In 2024, we're going to see a big resurgence in colors that calm and soothe. Gentle pastels will re-emerge after a long period of absence from the color scene. This will include some refreshing and cooling greens from mint to watercress, powdery lilac and fresh, zesty lemon-drop yellow. Cabinetry in this laundry room are painted in fresh Sherwin-Williams' Lounge Green." — Andrea May, interior designer
  6. Warm Red - "I predict reds! Warm rusty reds, burgundy, auburn and muted mauve." — Kelsey McGregor, founder of Kelsey Leigh Design Co.
  7. Dark Mauve - "Dark mauves have been popping up and it's going to be a big color trend in 2024. It's one of those colors that can read neutral but still happy and bold. I used Cocoa Berry by Sherwin-Williams in my powder bath and I couldn't love it more. It's unexpected yet calm." — Emily Henderson, interior designer
  8. Dusty Pink - "Peach Fuzz's [Pantone's 2024 Color of the Year] warmer, pinker and more flattering cousin is Farrow & Ball's Setting Plaster. It's neutral but not, and works with pretty much any other color." —Colleen Simonds, interior designer
  9. Shades of Blue - "Expect to see paint colors in shades of deep sea foam, teals, navy blues and other hues in the blue-green family ranging from medium to dark." — Breegan Jane, interior designer
  10. Soft Black - "People have been working with light, warm neutrals for the last few years, and Cracked Pepper (Behr's 2024 Color of the Year) is a color that can create a comfortable atmosphere... It's a bold, strong color that is very adaptable and easy to bring into any decor style." — Erika Woelfel, vice president of color and creative services at Behr Paint
  11. Wine Colors - "People are taking more risks with color in their home. This means less grays and whites and more colors that pack a punch, like Sherwin-Williams' Merlot in one of my recent clients' home library." — Nikki Klugh, interior designer
  12. Emerald Green - "Jewel tones, particularly emerald green, are here in a major way. Benjamin Moore Buffet Green is rich and saturated without being bright. Bring on the mood and depth of color." — Sarah Storms, founder of Styled by Storms
