Looking for a simple yet dazzling way to give your space a new look for the new year? Check out the Sherwin Williams 2024 Color of the Year, Upward, which the company describes as a breezy and blissful shade of blue. 

"This color represents the gentle forward momentum in all of our lives," says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing at Sherwin-Williams. "It brings to life that carefree, sunny day energy that elicits a notion of contentment and peace. With this color, we invite our consumers to take a pause and infuse a new sense of ease and possibility into their spaces – one that doesn't overwhelm, but rather establishes meditation and tranquility." 

Amber Shay, Vice President of National Design Studio for Meritage Homes says she’s excited that blue is a hot hue in 2024. “Blue is such a classic color that can be used in so many different styles and is also known for having a calming effect in interiors,” she says.  

As for how to use Upward in your home, Shay says the possibilities are endless. “This shade of blue is such a pretty color for coastal design, and it works so well with marble and other natural stones. It’s versatile enough to use on an entire room, an accent wall, or to add a splash of color through small items like pillows, artwork and decorative accessories,” says Shay.
