Benjamin Moore's Color of the Year 2024
Every year, we eagerly anticipate Benjamin Moore's annual trend forecast and the industry-leading paint company has just unveiled its color palette for 2024. Among the array of influential hues, our curiosity was piqued to discover Benjamin Moore's chosen Color of the Year – a shade experts predict will dominate the world of interior design and decoration in 2024. The honored hue for 2024 is Blue Nova 825, a mid-tone blue evoking the depth of the night sky and the radiance of a nascent star in space.
This unique shade melds blue with hints of violet, conjuring images of the celestial realm and beckoning us to explore uncharted realms. The presence of red undertones in the violet infusion ensures that Blue Nova exudes a welcoming warmth, countering the potential coolness associated with blue. Rather than feeling aloof, it encourages contemplation of the sky's transcendence while providing a comforting sanctuary. Blue Nova 825 aligns with the trend of employing captivating colors that command attention, coupled with the desire to fashion homes into sanctuaries reflecting individual style.
For a striking contrast and invigorating ambiance, pair it with a vibrant terracotta. Alternatively, for a more subdued effect, use it as an accent to emphasize architectural elements like picture rails or skirting boards. This technique particularly enhances small spaces, where Blue Nova 825 serves as the anchor, allowing the contrasting color to infuse warmth, resulting in an unexpected and dynamic environment.
In 2024, Benjamin Moore foresees a preference for gentler hues – leaning towards faded, dusty, and vintage-inspired shades that offer timeless versatility. The palette comprises ten shades, ranging from the boldest, a radiant burnt orange, to the softer end with a summery sky blue and two variations of blushing rose pink. Neutrals include a versatile off-white, a gentle warm yellow, a weathered silver, a gray with lilac undertones, and a plush dark green. This diverse selection offers limitless possibilities for home renovating projects.
