Each year my favorite paint companies release their color of the year. I choose paint colors from any manufacturer but my top three are Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore, and Dunn Edwards so I am featuring them here. Keep scrolling to see the predictions for 2024. (I hope you like blue!)
Used as an accent or all over, in classic coastal or casual Nordic styles, the airy, misty-hued beauty dwells where the fairest-weather blue finds just a hint of silver lining. Additionally, the commercial appeal of pale blue hues resonates widely, manifesting in furniture, lighting, textiles, and accessories in ranges that seamlessly blend aesthetics and functionality.
Blue Nova by Benjamin Moore
This rich, grounded blue works just as well on an accent piece as it does covering a color-drenched room. The color was chosen to represent the blend of modern and traditional styles that are popular in home interiors right now. “Blue Nova is an alluring mid-tone that balances depth and intrigue with classic appeal and reassurance.”
Dunn-Edwards Skipping Stones
is a serene and steely blue with hints of green and gray and is meditative and energizing like the sea. As we move into 2024, Skipping Stones lets you capture the feeling of dreamy nostalgia blended with a future of unlimited possibilities. Skipping Stones evokes the meditative tranquility of the sea, inviting us to pause and find moments of stillness in our fast-paced lives. Its calming influence encourages optimism and embodies the essence of coastal serenity.
