Coral, one of the major paint brands in Brazil, has chosen Winter Square as its 2024 color of the year. Inspired by the morning sky, this shade is in harmony with the future as well as the connection we make with family, friends and nature.
According to Coral, “Square in Winter” is a versatile and soothing color. It gives incredible palettes and can be used in different rooms of the house, including the living room, bedroom and kitchen.
Eucatex, another paint brand, has chosen “Modernismo” as its 2024 color of the year. It is a light pink shade that reflects feelings such as love, affection, sweetness, tenderness and prosperity. It is the best choice for repairing the walls of the house and improving well-being in times of crisis.
Other shades of light pink are also on the rise and make the interior design more delicate.
Pantone, the global color standard, has named Classic Blue 19-4052 one of the biggest sensations of 2024. This shade indicates clarity and communication, and is also reminiscent of the sky at dusk.
The classic shade of blue is timeless, simple, calm and has a high level of stability. It signals protection, calmness and confidence, but also carries the inspiration of nature, especially from the bottom of the sea.
However, in the group of shades of blue, Sherwin-Williams chose “nautical” ink as the color of the year. It is a calm and versatile dark blue color, reminiscent of the night sky or even the depths of the sea.
Shades of dark green have been very successful abroad and have now arrived in full force in Brazil. They are ideal for embodying balance, security and tranquility. Not to mention, darker shades represent the healing power of nature.
Dark green is a delightful, therapeutic and sophisticated color. The tone, which stands out as the trend of the season, is ideal for all interiors and can also be used to paint facades.
It is important to be careful when applying this color in small spaces, as there is a risk of making it too dark.
There is a minimalist vibe in the air, which is why many people opt for palettes that value cream tones. In this case, the walls are painted in beige, white, cream and other light neutral tones. This timeless simplicity goes with all types of lighting, furniture and decorative items.
Grey, a particularly light shade, is on the rise. Since it is a neutral color and easy to match, it can be used in home cladding as the “new white”.
Nature was a strong inspiration for the color palette. In addition to green, residents can also bet on earthy tones, which represent the earth and the search for roots. Light brown, mustard, and burnt orange are some options.
Pastel colors are ideal for interior decoration in a minimalist style. They are soft, elegant and add charm to any room in the house.
Tips for using colors in decoration and facade
Here are some interesting ways to use colors and recommendations:
If you want to use one of the colors in your decor, consider painting the fifth wall. A ceiling of a different color can be visually interesting in a room layout. In some spaces, even the use of graphic patterns, such as stripes, is possible.
An interesting tip to make the space look bigger is to create sections in the wall art. Use two colors in the composition, achieving contrast at the top. This strategy is super hot and can push the ceiling higher.
There are other techniques that combine two or more colors on the same wall, such as ombre on the wall. The result is a gradient composition that is ultra-modern, sophisticated and bold. So keep this trend in mind when painting your home.
The geometric painting technique is a decorating trend that is in line with contemporary homes. It can be put into practice in the living room, bedroom, kitchen or any other environment, enhancing shapes such as triangles and circles.
The chosen color should emphasize the architectural style. Neutrals and light tones, for example, work well with modern designs. These soft colors can be explored not only through painting, but also through stones such as canjiquinha.
In the case of a rustic-style property, such as a country house, it is worth working with earthy colors on the façade.
Get to know the feel of each color
Each color conveys a feeling and has a special meaning, at least according to feng shui.
White represents infinity and emptiness. Lavender restores a sense of calm. Pink is a synthesis of love and tenderness. Red is a stimulating color, just like orange, which fuels creativity. Yellow has the ability to stimulate the mind to the fullest.
There are also green and blue colors that are directly related to well-being.
When choosing colors for your home, keep in mind that the richest and brightest tones fade faster. The color loses its saturated shade over time, especially when applied to the facade of the house.
5 trending wall colors for 2024
Calm colors are in trend now. These are the right colors for an increasingly hectic pace of life. They have become almost a necessity.
And among the soothing colors, grayish-green is the leader in its properties.
Green, as we have seen, is the most soothing color. A color with which the eye rests, which gives a feeling of calm like no other.
In this way, greyish green combines the soothing properties of the standard green, but is further enhanced by its low saturation and strength, resulting in one of the softest, softest and most soothing tones in the entire color range.
In fact, Bruguer’s color of the year, Tranquil Dawn, is a color that is born in opposition to this increasingly hectic and digital world, and do you know where that color is? Precisely, among the grayish greenery.
It has already become clear that grayish green is one of the trendy colors due to its characteristics and soothing properties. Now I will tell you how to combine it.
Luckily, since it is a shade of grayish green, it pairs well with just about any color. But it pairs especially well with warm tones such as beige, wood or plant fibers, which add a warmth that this color lacks and can create a palette for your home in perfect harmony.
So, if you want a space that is soothing yet warm, cozy and bright at the same time, pair grayish green with wood, plant fibers and a beige tone.
If you want to see other combinations, here you can see 15 colors that go well with green.
Now let’s move on to the next trending color of the year 2024 for walls.
As we have seen on the blog and I have commented many times, blue and green are the most relaxing colors.
In fact, blue and green have very, very similar characteristics.
Both are in the cold part of the chromatic circle, both are relaxing, and both are part of “natural” colors, as these are the colors we find in nature itself, such as the blue of the sky or water.
With calm and soothing colors winning by a wide margin this year, it’s no surprise that blue-gray is among the most popular.
And as I said, blue, and especially shades of grayish blue, which have little saturation and are soft, almost neutral, along with greens, are the most soothing tones we can find in the chromatic circle.
Another advantage of greyish blue is that it is an elegant and versatile color. It fits very well in any space.
We can paint grayish blue both a nursery and a living room with full success, as well as an office or any other room, as it adapts to all of them.
It is also a color that pairs very well, but some of the shades that it pairs best with are beige and pink.
What color do I recommend if you want to paint your house like this? I recommend two:
The first one is in case you want a soft greyish blue tone and this is Bruguer’s Tranquil Dawn. Remember I told you earlier that Brueger’s Serene Dawn was greyish green? It is also bluish gray. It’s halfway between both.
The second, if you want a more intense bluish gray, is Bruguer’s Denim Gray, which we see right above those lines.
This beautiful color belongs to Valentine, who named it a trendy wall color last year. Warm tone and, of course, relaxing.
As you can see, all the trend colors for 2024 are going in this direction: peace, relaxation and well-being.
Unlike the two colors we looked at at the beginning, grayish green and bluish gray, Shavasana Valentina is a color that is in the hot part of the color wheel, so it is a warm color. Warm yes, but also relaxing.
It’s somewhere between off-white and off-white. Tone with a slight saturation, very bright and friendly.
So if you are looking for a color that will brighten up your home by painting the walls as well as creating a feeling of relaxation and cosiness, Shavasana Valentina is the one for you.
It is also worth highlighting the endless combinations of this color, and it is a color that can be very well combined with everything, but especially with shades of wood, plant fibers, earthy greens and reds such as terracotta or tile color.
So, for example, if you want, you can paint one wall of your living room terracotta red and the rest of it this glowing color, creating a modern, warm, light and relaxing palette. This is just one example of how much you can do with this color.
Yes, blue again, but this time the classic blue, recognized by the Pantone Color Institute as the color of the year.
While it’s a stronger and more powerful color than any we’ve seen, Pantone is also based on the same qualities as other colors: relaxation.
Remember I told you that blue is one of the most relaxing colors?
No wonder this color has become so trendy lately.
And that Classic Blue is a timeless color, but also elegant and simple.
“Blue inspires calmness, instills confidence and creates connection, highlighting our desire to strengthen the reliable and stable foundation on which we build our way to the threshold of a new era.” Here’s how Pantone defines it.
A color that brings peace, promotes concentration and reflection, and increases resilience. Is on.
So if you’ve been looking for a trendy wall color that’s brighter than the soft tones we’ve seen, Classic Pantone Blue is for you.
If you want to enhance its qualities, you can combine it with wood tones, plant fibers and accents of browns and beiges to add warmth to the cold color of nature.
In addition, you can also see 14 other colors here that go well with blue.
Pink was trending years ago, especially Pantone Rose Quartz, and it hasn’t faded since.
What it did is it evolved from a dusty pink or pale pink to a pinkish earth tone.
Earthy pinks are in the hot part of the chromatic circle, so they are warm colors that can easily create a very cozy environment.
In addition, they also stand out for having a very bright color due to their pigmentation.
Another advantage of these colors is that they go very well with wood tones and plant fibers, like the rest of the ones we have seen, which today abound in many homes in the form of baskets, furniture and other accessories of a natural nature.
But not only, as you understand, these tones are also in trend for this reason, and even because they are also relaxing.
In addition, it is very easy to achieve an elegant and sophisticated environment with them. Much easier than with blue or green, for example.
