Colour Trends 2024
Incredibly it’s that time of year again. Benjamin Moore’s Colour of the Year 2024 has been revealed!
Blue Nova 825/CC-860
A moody blue with a strong lean towards purple, like a deep, periwinkle tone.
And guess what? Blue Nova is a similar tone to colours that I’ve used recently for custom cabinetry on two different interior design projects.
Yes, I am the interior design colour trendsetter. 🙂
First up is my own kitchen design where I selected the cabinet colour Kensington Blue.
While Blue Nova is slightly less intense than Benjamin Moore’s Kensington Blue, take a look below at just how similar these two Benjamin Moore colours really are.
Now check out a basement laundry room we designed in 2022. We used the colour Indigogo by Benjamin Moore for the custom cabinetry.
Although not every colour of the year becomes the next big thing, it will be interesting to see if people will embrace (and really commit to!) Blue Nova in a similar way that I did in these Burlington interior design projects.
I absolutely adore this colour tone and the way in which my entire kitchen design came together.
But it’s not easy to pull off this colour successfully in design as it is to do with the neutral look of a style such as ‘farmhouse’.
That is why many tend to play it safe when decorating, by using popular white paint colours. But I find safe and neutral to often equal boring or uninspiring.
I say – Give me colour!
In addition to the Colour of the Year announcement, Benjamin Moore has also released their entire Colour Trends palette for 2024.
Look at the Colour Trends 2024 palette and then this image showing the different finishes used in my kitchen.
The paint chips I matched from my Spode wall plates with brass rims create a very similar colour palette. These plates from my mother-in-law were the jumping-off point for our entire kitchen design.
Finding inspiration in meaningful decorative items such as these is a great way to determine how to choose the best paint colour for a project.
This is proof that you can create an entire room or even a full home colour palette from the helpful downloads I’ve personally created, my Perfect Colour Palettes.

Blue Nova 825/CC-860
Blue and orange are opposite on the colour wheel. You can see how these similar colour tones when combined together in a space can create a striking pairing.
White Dove OC 17
Regent Green 2136-20
Painted ceilings can add incredible drama to a room. Here you can see the dark Regent Green ceilings and trim contrasting with White Dove on the walls.
Below is one of our dining room designs where we used the contrasting colour combination of Hale Navy on the ceiling and in the niche while painting the wall the soft, beautiful neutral that is White Dove.
When Benjamin Moore announced Aegean Teal as the Colour of the Year for 2021, I already had that colour painted on the ceiling of my outdoor interior design studio.
See, I am the interior design colour trend-setter 🙂
