Blue Skies Ahead: Here’s What Paint Companies Foresee as the Leading 2024 Color Trends


This year’s color predictions from leading paint companies bring us an array of uplifting shades from the delicate to the bold.  Soft terra cotta and warm neutral shades from HGTV Home by Sherwin Williams and Glidden remind us of a calming desert oasis, while the deep gray at Behr prompts daydreams about a comforting cocoon at home.

But there’s no denying that blue is the prevailing color foreseen for 2024. From the happy sky blue “Thermal” at C2 to the deep outer space-inspired “Blue Nova” at Benjamin Moore, blue commands attention in a variety of shades. In interior design, blue is most often used in those spaces in which we want to feel calm and relaxed, such as bedrooms and bathrooms. Here’s a look at the 2024 color trends for inspiration in your own home!
