When I first moved into my apartment, the first thing I did was unpack a roller and paintbrush and paint over the only non-white wall in the space. It was was dark green feature wall around the fireplace, and even from when I first viewed the place, I knew it had to go. And I don’t regret that decision. 

However, after living in my home for almost 3 years I am starting to reconsider my choice to paint every single wall with Brilliant White paint. Not even a warm white, or an off-white, nothing nuanced, just a bog standard pure white. My thought process behind it was twofold – I like my decor to be the focus of any room, I add character through a lot of books, crockery, and patterned fabrics. So having white walls as a backdrop to all this did make sense. The apartment also isn’t huge and we all know interior design 101 is lighter paint ideas make small spaces look bigger.

But, I am now getting a feeling it’s time for a change.

Admittedly this change is led by color trends I am seeing for 2024. White is hardly on trend anymore, it was replaced by plaster pinks, beiges, and soft creams a while ago. But, 2024 is seeing us be even braver with color, everything is a neutral nowadays – reds, greens, blues. So I am inspired to try something bolder, that will make my small apartment feel more cozy, more characterful. These are the colors and paints I am considering to replace my boring white walls.

Let’s start with the safest option. I have had swatches of various plaster-toned paints on my bedroom walls for the best part of this year and each time a guest catches them they always ask what am I waiting for?
