Like most things in this world, interior design is constantly evolving. If you’re looking to rejuvenate your home but aren’t sure where to start, painting is always a good first step. Painting is a (relatively) easy home improvement project—if you don’t like the final results, you can always start over with a fresh coat.

In this blog post, we’ll explore the six most popular interior painting styles we expect to see more of in 2024.

#1: Tranquil & Comforting Hues

Life is often stressful and unrelenting. If there’s one place you can relax in, it has to be your home. That’s why so many homeowners opt to use soft pastels and warm earth tones as an antidote to the hectic pace of modern life.

Soft pastels, in particular, bring a light and airy feel to a room, specifically bedrooms and living rooms, and are ideal for creating a soothing atmosphere that promotes relaxation and mental well-being.

Comparatively, warm earth tones, like terracotta, taupe, and beige, are natural, versatile, and welcoming for living rooms and dining areas. They also pair beautifully with different types of décor, making it easy to improve the room’s design without overwhelming it.

Additionally, what’s great about both soft pastels and warm earth tones is that they blend seamlessly with modern and traditional styles, so they suit all design preferences.

Why It’s Popular:

  • Makes spaces more welcoming and tranquil

#2: Matte Finishes

Matte finishes are continuing to rise in popularity. These finish types absorb light rather than reflect it, providing a soft, velvety texture that improves the depth of color on walls and reduces the appearance of imperfections, like bumps, cracks, or patches, which glossier finishes might highlight.

Matte paint is also versatile and can be used in almost any interior space. It’s particularly popular in areas focused on art or other wall hangings.

Why It’s Popular:

  • Hides imperfections

#3: Bold Accent Walls

While some homeowners want to return to a relaxing, calming space, others are opting to display their vibrant personalities with bold accent walls. This design choice can transform a room from simple to spectacular and allows homeowners to experiment with daring colors or patterns they might hesitate to use on all four walls.

Bold colors or patterns also alter the perception of a room’s size and shape. For example, a dark color can make a large, stark room feel cozier, while a bright color can make a small room seem larger. Additionally, accent walls are less expensive and require less effort than painting an entire room, but they still achieve a transformative effect.

Why It’s Popular:

  • Less time-consuming while adding vibrancy to a room

#4: Monochromatic Color Schemes

Monochromatic schemes involve using different shades, tints, and tones of a single color. This design choice is inherently simple yet incredibly elegant, allowing homeowners to create a clean look that can be both modern and timeless.

A monochromatic palette also serves as a solid foundation that can be accented with various textures and materials, whether it’s artwork, furniture, or fabrics.

Choosing a monochromatic color scheme also simplifies decision-making and makes it easier to select and match furnishings, curtains, and accessories. Additionally, using shades of the same color can help achieve a balanced and stable atmosphere, making spaces more comforting and inviting.

Why It’s Popular:

  • Simple and easy to implement

#5: Geometric Patterns & Shapes

Like accent walls, geometric patterns and shapes are gaining traction with homeowners who want to add dynamic visuals and contemporary flair to their space. Geometric patterns create striking focal points while complementing various styles. They also possess a timeless quality, as they’ve been used frequently throughout history, from the Ancient Greeks to the Art Deco phase of the 20th century.

For some homeowners, the repetition and symmetry in these designs can also have a calming psychological effect while allowing them to play with artistic expression in their décor.

Why It’s Popular:

  • Cost-effective, versatile, and adds balance to a room

#6: Eco-Friendly Paints

Lastly, many younger homeowners are influenced by sustainability. In 2024, ‘sustainable’ and ‘eco-friendly’ aren’t just buzzwords—they are becoming significant lifestyle components. The lean towards environmentally friendly alternatives is why some homeowners choose paints with lower levels of volatile organic compounds (VOC), which are chemicals that can release toxic emissions into the air. Lower VOC levels contribute to better indoor air quality while remaining durable and versatile.
