2024 Color Of The Year
So, not everyone agrees on the 2024 Color of the Year… Better Homes & Garden has come out with an extensive list of 2024 colors of the year and it appears soothing earth tones, deep moody hues, and various shades of blue are among the most popular colors for 2024.
Earthy, nature-inspired tones will be especially big, according to the color experts that have released their predictions already. 2024 trend forecasts feature earth tones like terra-cotta and moody forestcore-inspired picks that include a rich deep green. We’re also seeing an influx of coastal-inspired blues, from light pastels to bold teals.
These are all the 2024 colors of the year that have been announced… so far.
Blue Nova by Benjamin Moore’s 2024 Color of the Year
Blue Nova 825 by Benjamin Moore is their selection for the 2024 color of the year and it is a rich, grounded blue that works just as well on an accent piece as it does covering a color-drenched room. “Blue Nova 825 is an alluring mid-tone that balances depth and intrigue with classic appeal and reassurance,” Andrea Magno, color marketing and development director at Benjamin Moore, said in a press release.
Benjamin Moore released a 2024 color trends report with other colors that complement the mix of modern and traditional. Creamy gray, muted orange, pewter gray, deep green, and hazy purple are all featured.
Thermal by C2
C2’s 2024 color of the year is Thermal, a mid-tone blue reminiscent of crisp fall skies and cozy winter scenes. “C2 Thermal reminds us of a vast blue sky and the infinite array of blue hues nature offers to help restore and redefine our mood,” Philippa Radon, interior designer and paint color specialist for C2, said in a press release.
“This bespoke pale yet punchy blue is poised for adventure and brimming with hope, evoking feelings of loyalty, trust, and confidence,” Radon says. “Its contradictory nature has the dual ability to uplift us and provide a sense of calm and tranquility.”
The paint experts at C2 created a 2024 color capsule that includes a soft, warm neutral and a moody, deep green. “Color is never seen in isolation,” Radon says. “Our annual capsule tells a story where our colors become the characters: the lead being Thermal, with Brulee and Marshland as support roles.”
Skipping Stones by Dunn-Edwards
Skipping Stones by Dunn-Edwards is the 2024 color of the year and is a cool, breezy blue that pairs well with warm whites, beiges, and natural elements.
“Skipping Stones feels like a daydream and can add a sense of mystery and thoughtfulness to any space,” DeMing Carpenter, color expert at Dunn Edwards, said in a press release. “It’s part of the resurgence of blue and represents a shift away from the bold, warm-toned colors we’ve seen gain popularity over the past few years.”
Bluebird by Krylon
Krylon’s 2024 color of the year combines the popularity of pale, patel blues that have a bold, bright tone. Bluebird is designed to be an uplifting color that sparks joy in any area of the home.
“Bluebird evokes joy and contentment within a space, embracing consumer desire for ‘dopamine decor’,” Ashley Banbury, Krylon’s color marketing manager, said in a press release. “Bluebird is a welcoming color that harmonizes effortlessly with both warm and cool shades and facilitates a balance in pairing accent colors, vintage furnishings and modern elements.”
“Its soft yet sophisticated tone pushes the boundaries of transformation that pale shades can achieve on a wide range of materials,” Banbury says.

“It brings to life that carefree, sunny day energy that elicits a notion of contentment and peace. With this color, we invite our consumers to take a pause and infuse a new sense of ease and possibility into their spaces—one that doesn’t overwhelm, but rather establishes meditation and tranquility.”

Bay Blue by Minwax – 2024 Color of the Year
Minwax’s Bay Blue stain brings a breezy, coastal feel or more of a moody, sophisticated aesthetic. This ocean-inspired shade has risen in popularity and is a trend that’s no doubt inspired by the coastal grandmother aesthetic that’s sweeping home design right now.
“Bay Blue is at the intersection of contemporary and classic,” said Sue Kim, director of color marketing for Minwax, in a press release. “This year’s color is meant to ignite the creativity of DIYers to think of bold and rich color stain options when planning their next home project. With Bay Blue available in both solid and semi-transparent wood stain opacities, the possibility to create custom looks is easily within reach.”
Limitless by Glidden – 2024 Color of the Year
Glidden’s 2024 color of the year is a warm, nearly-yellow neutral that can be paired with almost any color scheme. The color experts at Glidden call Limitless an “anything-but-yellow honey beige,” designed to blend with both warm and cool tones—though they’re embracing the warm-tone trend.
“This modern neutral is as adaptable as its name implies and is taking the place of cool neutral tones that are so last year,” said Ashley McCollum, color expert for Glidden, in a press release.
Renew Blue by Valspar – 2024 Color of the Year
Valspar’s pick for 2024 color of the year is Renew Blue (8003-37D), a calming, meditative shade of soft sky blue that you can use with coastal accents, like a jute runner or driftwood accessories. Use with bright white for a crisp, clean look with the perfect pop of color.

Inspired by fleeting elements like fog, mist, clouds, and glacier lakes, Renew Blue elevates the everyday mood, encourages self-expression, and evokes a feeling of balance and calm, with a twist of unique spontaneity,” said Sue Kim, Valspar director of color marketing, in a press release.
Cracked Pepper by Behr – 2024 Color of the Year
Behr’s 2024 color of the year is Cracked Pepper (PPU18-1), a deep almost-black charcoal hue. “We recognize the growing desire for using darker colors throughout spaces,” said Jodi Allen, global chief marketing officer at Behr Paint Company, in a press release. “Adding a soft black like Cracked Pepper evokes a sense of confidence and individuality that we want all of our customers to feel after completing a project.”
Cracked Pepper is neutral enough to adapt to any design style and plays well with a variety of textures and fabrics. “It truly feels very organic,” says Sarah Fishburne, The Home Depot’s director of trend and design. “And it feels like it definitely blends in with the landscapes and the plants. I think it’s like a really inky soil-y color, which is nice.”
