The year 2024, in terms of colors, is very inspired by the seventies. The colors are bolder, stronger and more powerful and breathe character and dynamism into our interiors. They seem to want to shake up our universe and uninhibit our decoration with blues, greens and yellows, tangy and lively. It feels a bit like the world is waking up after a latency period due to the epidemic that turned our lives upside down. Even if neutrals and softer shades are always well established, stronger tones are essential!
Yellow continues its ascent quietly in 2024. It may even last for many more years. If it imposed itself in slightly light tones, this summer, it returns in more seventies colors by relegating blandness and sobriety to the background. It becomes lively with a lemon yellow and goes as far as mustard yellow. It is present on the walls of the house for its very sunny, refreshing and tangy side, but also on the accessories and even certain pieces of furniture.

Between wine lees and red, burgundy has a slight hint of carmine red, which also occupies a prominent place in the decoration of 2024.
Green has always been present in our decoration, but it is making a strong comeback in 2024 in more invigorating and invigorating tones.

These tones adorn certain pieces of furniture to give them a more intense and charismatic life. It’s a way to bring vitality through a sofa, in the living room or a lamp, in the entrance or the bedroom. It also has the power to give a lot of modernity to lines that sometimes remain rooted in a certain classicism.

This color harmonizes perfectly with different shades of white, from the purest to the most elaborate. It is equally at home with natural, neutral, understated tones and softer greens and blues.

This is certainly what can appeal to color lovers who prefer to stay in easy-to-use shades.

Enough to prolong the craze for natural shades, inviting you to travel and daydream.
