Observing these trends evolve each year is truly captivating, offering an opportunity to discover whether any of them resonate with your personal style.
Let’s kick off with Pantone!
Pantone – Peach Fuzz
Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz is a velvety gentle peach whose all-embracing spirit enriches heart, mind, and body.
In home interiors it creates a welcoming ambiance. Promoting feelings of gentle warmth whether appearing on a painted wall, in home décor, or acting as an accent within a pattern, PANTONE Peach Fuzz infuses our most personalized worlds with a comforting presence.
Your colour tolerance will significantly influence how you integrate it into home interiors. To embrace the warmth of this soft tone, painting walls might be a nice way to enjoy it.
Accessorizing using the peachy colour is a less committed approach of indulging it.
Benjamin Moore – Blue Nova
Benjamin Moore has announced that their Color of the Year 2024 is Blue Nova 825, a saturated, vibrant blend of blue and violet that the brand says was inspired by the brilliance of a new star formed in space. It is a more complex grayed lavender blue, so that gives it some intrigue, and blue is associated with calm, loyalty, and steadfastness.
If you love the unusual mix and don’t shy away from bold choices, going for a backsplash or custom cabinets in Blue Nova is an exciting way of celebrating it in your home.
For a more understated approach, selecting throw cushions or other textiles ensures a foolproof solution as time progresses.
