This year’s Colormix® forecast is made up of 48 colors that fit in one of four curated palettes:
Palette No.1: The convergence of blues and greens
Palette No.2: The poetry of reds and purples

Let’s dive right into the palettes and explore how best to utilize each throughout your home!
Palette No. 1: The Convergence of Blues and Greens
Whether your style leans towards a subtle and understated palette or a vibrant and bold one, the wide range of blues and greens in palette No. 1 are sure to leave your space feeling calming-yet-invigorating. If you’re looking to give your bedroom a revamp, try choosing one of these from this palette:
Jacaranda SW 6802

Blues and greens, especially lighter ones, are traditionally successful in respite rooms like bedrooms. There is a natural association with calmness, resting, coming back to earth and recharging that is perfectly represented by this palette.
Palette No. 2: The Poetry of Reds and Purples

Palette No. 3: A Gathering of Deeps and Darks
If you’re looking to create an environment that feels tranquil yet impactful, look no further than the hues from palette No. 3. This deep and dark palette can introduce powerful contrast, play beautifully with colored light or gilded metallic accents, and make an impact in a variety of finishes and applications.

Dark and deep colors are great in TV rooms because they create a ‘theater-like’ environment.
Palette No. 4: A Study in Delicate Tints
The airy and barely-there colors in this palette are perfect for those who classify their design style as “neutral.” While the hues are subtle, you can still feel the impact of these colors on the space.
“The airy tints and soft whites with warm and cool undertones of this palette lend serene sophistication to spaces that invite deep thought and elevated style with the gentlest hint of color—or none at all,” Wadden tells Forbes Home. If you’re looking to create a space that exudes “mindfulness,” Wadden says to try one of these colors:
Snowbound SW 7004
Drift of Mist SW 9166
Light French Gray SW 0055
Heron Plume SW6070
Modern Gray SW 7632
Sand Dollar SW 6099

Love the neutral look of these colors but aren’t sure where they’d best fit into your home? They’re perfect for the kitchen: Delicate tints are always a go-to in kitchens because they offer a hygienic and serene look in a busy space. The neutrals and brights in this palette also pair beautifully with wood tones commonly found in kitchens.
No matter the design style or emotion you’re hoping to evoke throughout your home, the 48 colors featured in Sherwin-Williams’ 2024 Colormix® Forecast can help make your home look and feel better than ever.
