The colour brown is taking centre stage in 2024 as the statement interiors colour

According to the colour experts at Irish paint brand Colourtrend, brown brings a subtle but impactful depth to spaces, giving off a sense of cosiness and tranquillity – unlike the boldness of recently popular greens or blues.

Brown effortlessly transforms rooms into inviting sanctuaries. From rich chocolate tones to warm caramel hues and soft sandy shades, there’s a brown palette to suit every taste and style.

When paired with earthy tones like beige, tan, or cream, it creates a harmonious and balanced aesthetic, according to the experts.
