Looking for a quick, easy change to help your home feel fresh for the new year?
One of the easiest (and more inexpensive) ways to update your home is by
changing up your color palette.
Depending on your current décor and overall aesthetic, there are a number of
directions you can go. Here are paint manufacturers’ top suggestions for 2024.
Warm and Soft
Creating a comfortable environment is critical for a space where everyone can
live, play, and work. These warm, soft hues for 2024 are sure to elevate the
ambience of your home and create a place to draw you, your family, and your
friends together.
 Peach Fuzz, from Pantone, is a cozy peach hue that highlights both a desire
for togetherness and enjoying a moment of stillness.
 Persimmon, from HGTV Home by Sherwin-Williams, is a naturally
inspired terracotta-based hue that feels both uplifting and refreshing.
 Limitless, from Glidden/PPG, is a warm honey beige hue that draws on its
power as a primary color while serving as a strong neutral at the same
time.
Peaceful Blues
The idea of creating a sanctuary within the home extends to other shades as well.
Look toward the blue color spectrum for a variety of shades to create a serene,
uplifting environment.
 Upward, from Sherwin-Williams, is a breezy, blissful blue that encourages
you to slow down, take a breath, and clear your mind.
 Blue Nova, from Benjamin Moore, is an alluring mid-tone that’s equal
parts enchanting and timeless.
 Thermal, from C2, is a punchy blue poised for adventure while evoking
feelings of loyalty, trust, and confidence.
 Skipping Stones, from Dunn-Edwards, can add a sense of mystery and
thoughtfulness to any space.
 Bluebird, from Krylon, complements natural tones and textures while
creating an environment where everyone can be at ease.
 Bay Blue, from Minwax, is a relaxing mix of blue and green that invites you
to create a home that’s authentically personal.

 Renew Blue, from Valspar, is a nourishing, green-influenced blue that
creates a sense of peace wherever you place it.
Statement Colors
Sometimes a new year calls for a fresh look, with a bold shift in appearances. If a
pop of fresh color is what you’re looking for, here are a few selections to help
make a statement:
 Cracked Pepper, from Behr, is a versatile soft black that accentuates the
spaces you create life moments in.
 Ironside, from Dutch Boy, provides a sense of sophisticated comfort, as
well as the perfect backdrop for showcasing furniture, art, and accessories
 Chocolate Cherry, from Rust-Oleum, stands out but also provides a strong
neutral backdrop that adds a sense of authenticity.
