Interior Colour Trends for 2024

“Colour is one of the most important aspects of interior design because of the impact it has on our emotions” Emma Hooton, founder Studio Hooton.

Fresh back from Decorex 2023 we can confirm the trend for rich, cocooning interior colours will continue for 2024, with earthy, nature-inspired colours remaining popular throughout. Warm, yellow-based neutrals will continue to replace the once-everywhere cool, grey-based neutrals. The browns synonymous with 70s home décor will also take centre stage, albeit in refined shades that make them the “perfect backdrop to natural materials including wicker, rattan, warm woods and stone”, according to Ruth Mottershead at Little Greene.

An all-over honeyed shade pictured above drenches walls, woodwork and cabinetry to create a warm, comforting glow. Part of the Little Greene Sweet Treats collection and inspired by bomboloni, the signature Italian doughnuts perfect for breakfast or as an afternoon treat, the colour pairs well with complementary neutrals and pops of marine blue or woad.

Interior colour trends for 2024 will also see earthy neutrals pair with more vibrant nature-inspired blues, greens and reds. Eco-friendly paint specialists Lick says: “While grounding earth tones will continue to form the anchor of interior colour palettes in 2024 and beyond, these will be paired with brighter, zestier, more uplifting colours that reflect a new-found energy, optimism and desire to have fun with our interior.” As such, modern colour palettes will encourage us to slow down, connect with nature and embrace new beginnings.

This relaxed zen-like space above takes its cues from the outdoors. Blending outdoor elements with the interior’s organic textures, earthy beiges and warms browns, it has a modern rustic charm reminiscent of country retreats. The taupe walls are part of the Lick X Soho House inspired by Soho House locations. This kitchen captures the upmarket Soho Farmhouse look.

Our colour crush at Studio Hooton is Beige 02 Soho Farmhouse. Supportive and earthy, the warm yellow and grey undertones give this beige a cocooning quality.

Browns of many shades are making a comeback thanks to their calming and warm qualities. Little Greene’s rich chocolate “Ganache” or “Chocolate Colour” (for an even greater interior design statement) are deeply relaxing, making them the “perfect choice for bedrooms, bathrooms and living rooms, or any space you wish to create a restful and indulgent feel”, says Ruth Motterhead, Creative Director at Little Greene. Complement the shade with soft, warm whites for a traditional feel or add a bright accent for a more dynamic look.

Choosing an on trend paint colour is just one part of making a room a space you truly want to spend time in.
