Colours for home walls

What Colour to paint your home walls in 2024.

Owners of properties here in Malta are always busy remodelling, upgrading and updating their homes to reflect the latest design trends. This includes painting the home’s interior to befit one’s personal taste, but also to reflect with what are the most popular choices from leading international interior designers and decorators. We did some research on what is happening out there regarding home colours, so whether you’re planning a full room makeover or just want to refresh your space, these trending colours below will help you create a stylish and up-to-date home. Let’s explore the exciting world of interior paint trends for 2024!

Damson hues

One may well ask what colour damson is, should you not be in the know. It primarily describes blue-black reds or purple, the colour of fortified wine…described as a mauve-grey when it comes to home interiors rather than the awful electric purple reminiscent of the seventies! It is soft on the eye, rich, velvety and very luxurious. This autumnal shade is currently reigning supreme and is expected to continue well into 2024. Imagine deep, rich reds reminiscent of ripe berries. From kitchen units to entire living rooms, damson interiors have been making waves on social media. These berry shades are a step forward from previous pink tones and add drama and warmth to any space.

The warmth of cocoa hues

Think of cosy, comforting chocolate browns that evoke the feeling of sipping hot cocoa by the fireplace. These earthy tones create a sense of warmth and sophistication in your home. Choose to paint an entire room or a simple accent wall, you won’t get it wrong with cocoa!

The sweetness of caramel tones

Believe it or not, caramel shades are making a comeback! They’re versatile and work well in both modern and traditional interiors. Use them on walls, furniture, or even as accent colours. Caramels work well when paired with wood, stone, leather, brass and copper when decorating a room.

Grounding neutrals

Neutrals never go out of style and blends with everything. If you do not want to repaint walls often, then neutrals are your go-to choice. Look for warm beige, taupe and ‘greige’ (a mix of grey and beige) to create a timeless backdrop for your home.

Dark and dramatic

If you’re feeling bold, consider dark colours like charcoal grey, navy blue or forest green. They create a moody, sophisticated ambience and if used in the right location, can be very stylish when used in the right setting.

Yes, it is peachy hues too

Reminding us of some Laura Ashley decorated homes all those decades ago, soft peach tones again bring a touch of gentle playfulness and soft elegance. Peach pairs beautifully with other light neutrals and can be used in bedrooms, living rooms or home offices.

Blissful blues

Blue has always been a classic choice and here, in 2024, we’re again seeing the rise of serene blues that evoke calm and tranquillity. Consider using muted, soft blues in bedrooms or bathrooms.

Plaster pinks

Muted pink shades can add a subtle blush to your walls, but we call for restraint as it can quickly become tiresome. Pinks can create a soothing atmosphere in bedrooms and nurseries.

Are greens always good for you?

As the world goes back more and more to nature for inspiration, greens and blue-greens derived from the great outdoors are very much in vogue. Think of hues like moss green, seafoam and sky blue. They bring a sense of freshness and harmony.

Sunshine shades

Yellow is associated with positivity and energy, so opt for sunny yellows to brighten up any space, especially in kitchens and dining areas. We definitely prefer to err on the side of caution when it comes to using yellows on walls.

Head-turning reds

Besides damson, other reds are also making waves this year. From fiery scarlet to deep burgundy, these shades add vibrancy and personality but here again, think twice before committing to painting large areas in this powerful colour range.

Remember, the right paint colour can significantly impact your emotions and well-being, so choose wisely and enjoy transforming your home with 2024’s trendy hues!
