If I were to create a poll on the most difficult parts of designing a home, I can almost guarantee picking paint colors would be near the top of the list. There are a million options out there, and it can feel almost impossible to narrow down the choices, especially when it’s hard to visualize what those colors will actually look like in your home.
My goal is always to help make creating a home you love as simple as possible, so I’ve researched the most popular, tried and true paint colors from top brands, along with current paint color trends for 2024. After narrowing down almost 100 options, I created a list of 24 beautifully coordinated colors that will help you transform your spaces with both style and confidence. These are colors I believe we’ll be seeing a lot of this year in interiors, and many of them have been designer favorites for years already.
Whether you’re looking for a soft, light neutral or something more bold and moody, these trending paint colors are just what your home has been waiting for.
If you want your space to feel light, casual, soft, and effortless, these neutrals are just what you’re looking for. Simple and subtle, these colors could easily be carried throughout an entire house or a main level. Du Jour is the color we had in our living for many years, and it’s the prettiest creamy bright white. The rest of the colors are a bit cozier with Natural Linen being a bit warmer and Mindful Gray leaning more to the cool side, while still feeling inviting. I’ve been dying to try Pale Oak somewhere in our home and think it would pair beautifully with Du Jour for the trim.

If you’re craving a more intimate, moody space and not afraid to go to the dark side, these colors are to die for. Ranging from softer shades of gray and brown to rich, saturated versions, you’re going to love the drama these colors will add to your space. Cracked Pepper is Behr’s Color of the Year for 2024, and Sherwin Williams Urbane Bronze and Tricorn Black have been widely popular, especially for exterior accents. If you’re wanting to try a dark color somewhere in your home, I recommend either a room that has a lot of windows and natural light to keep the space from feeling too heavy OR a small powder room to make a big impact in a small space. I’d love to try Sealskin and Caviar that are both slightly softer and feel a little more lived in.

If you want to step outside of neutrals, these dusty blues are a great place to start. Upward is Sherwin Williams Color of the Year, and Whale’s Tale feels like the perfect gray with just enough faded blue mixed in. Hague Blue would be so beautiful paired with a crisp white, and I love that these colors could be incorporated into any style from contemporary to coastal or collegiate. How gorgeous would these blues be in a bathroom or boy’s bedroom?

Green probably isn’t the first color you think of when picking paint colors for a space, but I love the relaxing, tranquil quality it has – perfect for a bedroom. I could easily picture Sage Gray or Retreat in a master suite, and Sea Salt is a really soft, pretty twist on a neutral that could be used anywhere. Pewter Green has an old-fashioned feeling to it, and I would love to see it paired with antique gold accents. But if your style is more chic and polished, I highly recommend giving Regent Green a try.

Red is definitely having its big moment this year in paint color trends, and if you want to try this bold punch of color in your home, I love both of these shades. One is a deep, muddy wine color with plenty of brown mixed in, and the other is slightly warmer and softer – the perfect “spice”. If you’re hesitant to jump on this trend, try painting just an accent wall or only on the top portion of your walls with white wainscoting underneath.

I hope this helps take a little bit of indecision and overwhelm out of picking paint colors for your home, and let me know if you’d like to see more paint color trends again for next year!
