New Hues for a New Year

Posted on Sunday, January 28, 2024

What’s new in hues? Quite a lot, it seems. The watchwords for 2024 include “high-contrast,” “tone-on-tone” and “tranquility.” There’s also going to be a lot of blue. Read on to discover what’s trending, then speak to your builder representative to see how you can get the look for your new Sierra Vista home.

New Shades of Blue

We could say blue is back, but blue never really goes out of style. Prognosticators predict a shift from bolder blues to lighter, more ephemeral ones. A prime example is Sherwin-Williams’ color of the year, Upward. The soft color is perfect for adding a touch of tranquility to bedrooms and home offices.

Color Play

It’s always fun to play with color, but this year, designers predict people will be drawn to tone-on-tone color palettes. This type of decorating creates a sophisticated look by layering colors from the same family.  Choose a warm earth shade for the walls then add furniture and rugs in a similar shade for a chic look.

Bolds Go Neutral

The new year is going to switch neutrals up in a big way with beige being replaced by rich purples, deep greens and vibrant yellows. These bold neutrals won’t be found all over the house, just in small rooms homeowners want to make a big statement in. Use bold colors in your guest bath, office or laundry room.

Getting Warmer

Homeowners are gravitating away from cool grey toward warmer creams, browns and rusts. One of the main reason warmer neutrals is trending is the ubiquitous presence of LED lighting. This type of lighting tends to cool colors down, so get the shade you want, you need to go warmer.

Opposites Attract

Dark, rich colors are going to play huge role in taming the lighter, brighter colors that will be popular this year. While much of the heavy lifting will be done by chocolate browns and forest greens, black is set to star. Behr’s color of the year, Cracked Pepper, is the perfect accent color as it is soft enough to be inviting and timeless.

Prepare for Pink 

Thinking of building a dream home? You can’t go wrong with pink. This year pink hues are set to be alluring and sophisticated — think mauve, not bubble gum. It’s an excellent color for intimate spaces like bathrooms but done right, it can enhance entire game room.
