“Relaxing and vibrant, Minwax’s Bay Blue is an ocean-inspired mix of blue and green that makes for a splashy accent colour indoors and out.”

Not content to let Pantone be the sole arbiter of colour trends this year? (Their colour of the year is a velvety peach tone, by the way.) Then you’ll be happy to hear that several paint companies have released their own picks for the coming year’s hottest hue. Here’s a roundup to inspire your home decorating projects in 2024.

Company: Behr

Colour: Cracked Pepper  

Vibe: A versatile soft black, it’s a sophisticated and dramatic choice for accent walls, furniture and maybe even that small powder room.
