Experts reveal colours of the year

With a surge of over 80% in searches for ‘interior trends 2024’ in the past month1 and brands unveiling their designated ‘colours of the year’ for 2024, it’s now time to explore the anticipated colour trends that are poised to be popular in the coming year.

As the new year unfolds, it presents a canvas of possibilities for homeowners and design enthusiasts alike to embark on a journey of exploration and creativity in the realm of interior design.

The transition to a new year often sparks a desire for change and innovation, making it an opportune time to embrace fresh interior trends. Whether it’s experimenting with bold colour palettes, incorporating innovative furniture designs, or adopting novel decor concepts, the dawn of a new year signifies a chance to reimagine living spaces.

With this in mind premium window and door designer, The Residence Collection, have pulled together the top four colours that are upcoming big trends, and how to incorporate them into the home:

Warm Neutrals

For 2024, Pantone has designated ‘Peach Fuzz’ as its colour of the year. This gentle and vintage-inspired peach hue is set to introduce a new modern aesthetic, infusing homes with a sense of kindness and tenderness.

As traditional white is becoming less favoured, the compassionate and nurturing qualities embedded in warm neutral tones are expected to cultivate a soft and calming atmosphere within homes, replacing the bolder colours we have seen dominate over previous years.

The spotlight will be on cosy and inviting spaces created by warm neutrals. Applying these hues to walls close to windows or incorporating them into window dressings like curtains and blinds enables the natural light to emanate a more authentic colour.


The post-barbiecore trend revolved around embracing various shades of pinks, as seen in the infamous Barbie movie, is a trend expected to persist into the new year. Dulux’s colour of the year, ‘Sweet Embrace’, is a perfect embodiment of these soft pink tones, making it a highly anticipated and popular colour trend.

Anticipate encountering pinks in various home elements such as soft furnishings, curtains and decorative items for those wanting to test the waters with this particular tone. However, its versatile appeal in the range of different tones it comes with allows for usage in statement walls as well as furniture pieces and across entire rooms.

Earthy Tones

Earthy tones have been a popular interior shade in recent years, and it is not anticipated to go away anytime soon. Farrow and Ball have also announced that Clay Tones are their colour of the year for 2024, homing in on the idea of the earthy interior tones trend continuing to gain popularity.

These hues serve as great foundations for numerous home interior designs and complement prevalent interior styles such as Japandi and Biophilic homes. This emphasises that blurred line between the indoor and outdoor that homeowners are now incorporating into their own spaces.


As also predicted by Farrow and Ball, these sunset hue colours are set to become a huge trend in 2024. We are beginning to see the return of popular retro-style interiors, echoing styles from the 1950s to 1980s. Think bold colours, patterns, and geometric shapes to create that sense of nostalgia.

The Newstalgia interior style is one we have seen crop up time and time again, combining vintage and retro pieces with contemporary accent, allowing homeowners to express their personalities through the art of interior design. Incorporating these colours in furnishings such as cushions, curtains, and throws offers an excellent method to infuse them into a home.

Commenting, Jo Trotman, Marketing Manager at The Residence Collection adds: “As we step into a new year, the thrill of possibilities is palpable, and one of the most exhilarating aspects is discovering the fresh trends awaiting us in home improvement and beyond.

“Embrace the excitement of a trendsetting journey, turning your living space into a canvas for personal expression and style evolution. Because in every trend, there lies an opportunity for you to shape your surroundings and make your space uniquely yours from your front door right to your window dressings.”
