Organic Textures

Vancouver Island home renovated by designer Tracey Ayton as featured on HGTV Canada featuring white painted brick walls and shiplap ceiling, white shutters and a black metal ceiling pendant light.

In 2024, one painting trend we’re going to see is the rise of organic, textured walls — either by adding plaster and painting or letting the original underneath material shine through. Here, we can still see the grain of the shiplap ceiling and the peaks and troughs of the brick.

Dark(er) Materials

Neutrals are always going to have their place in the pantheon of paint colours, but for 2024, we expect that they’re going dark.

Think Pink
