Shades of the future: colour trends for 2024 and suggestions from VALPAINT

Interior design has always been an ever-shifting kaleidoscope of different factors: from setting up spaces to selecting furniture, and from picking out materials to using colour to make the most of every room.

That’s why for those involved in this world, the colour trends that come and go year after year play a central role in bringing the spaces we live in to life.

Specifically, 2024 heralds the arrival of a thrilling journey through the colour palette, inviting us to explore new aesthetic horizons where every colour has a story to tell, every hue is rich in emotion and every shade creates a unique atmosphere.

In this guide, you’ll find out about the colour trends for 2024 and the decorative paints from VALPAINT that best show them off, in order to redefine the spaces we live in, translating feelings and ideas into a visual language.







1. Shades of emotions: pastel colours are in vogue for 2024


The delicate, relaxing hues of pastel colours are sure to conquer the world of interior design in 2024.

From powder pink to mint green, these shades can create a welcoming and soothing atmosphere, bringing a unique sense of personality to all your living spaces.

But that’s not all: their potential also includes the possibility of playful shading and unusual brushstrokes.

In fact, as these shades are particularly light and delicate, they offer unprecedented creative opportunities. Harmonious combinations of such hues allow remarkable effects to be achieved, transforming walls and furniture into modern works of art. Pastel tones, accentuated by shading and soft materials with rough finishes, represent a new concept of timeless elegance.

Unusual brushstrokes,used strategically, can be an expressive way to create intricate decorative motifs or simply to infuse vibrancy through pops of colour. Whether taking pride of place on a wall, or simply hinted at on furniture and details, these brushstrokes constitute a visual language expressing individuality and creativity, making every room a statement of style.



2. Contemporary nostalgia: the colour palette that brings past and present together


fusion of timeless classic style with contemporary practicality comes to life in neutral hues like white, beige and brown.

These tones, which are often associated with solid, low-saturation colours, help to create an atmosphere of calm and serenity. Neutral tones in a harmonious symphony of colour provide a canvas on which to paint a design narration that bridges past and present, elegance and functionality.


3. Poetic materials: the luxury of metropolitan style


Metal and cement are the stars of 2024 furnishing trends, with rough, irregular surfaces bringing a truly original appearance to furniture.


These innovative and changeable surfaces form a distinctive element of modern design and allow creatively personalised spaces, giving rooms an authentic, lived-in look at odds with cookie-cutter contemporary perfection.


In this way, luxury is redefined to embrace a “run-down” style which remains aesthetically elegant and technologically advanced.




4. Earth tones: new colour trends embrace materiality and sustainability


At a time when reality seems to be slipping further and further into the abstract, design is embracing the language of the material world, bringing us back to the tangible, authentic roots of things.

The colour trends for 2024 invite us to engage seriously with materials and with sustainability. Interiors come to life with a wealth of natural elements, where masterfully crafted raw materials and warm hues become the beating heart of rooms, characterised by an imperfect beauty that makes them truly charming and unique.

Interiors become a harmonious extension of nature itself, with every detail carefully studied to exist in perfect balance with its surroundings.

5. Colour contrasts: drenching spaces in a full immersion of colour


An explosion of vibrant colour boldly defining the character of a room: Colour Drenching is a key trend for 2024.

At the heart of this aesthetic is the use of large blocks of solid colour, which can create dynamic motifs and accents within the room. The colour block becomes a magnetic focal point, whether in the form of a vibrant wall or an eye-catching piece of furniture.
