We are thrilled to present the highly anticipated Haymes Paint Colour Library Origins Volume 17 – a captivating journey through the latest trends in colour for 2024.
Produced alongside our Partners in Design, Colour and Style, Adairs. Here is a palette that embraces the comfort of our past by utilising colours and patterns that recreate a nostalgic feeling. This colour palette wholeheartedly welcomes feelings of nostalgia. It’s about drawing upon our roots to create a new sense of belonging through storytelling and history.
New Narratives invites a familiar sense of calm with pops of bright pastels and bolder tones that work cohesively. Picture those familiar spaces from times gone by; from the pale blue of your childhood bedroom to the cotton candy-coloured tiles in your grandparents’ 1960s bathroom, these hues will take you back and allow you to reinterpret the past in the present. New Narratives brings this into 2024 through a reinvigorated colour palette in unexpected ways.

Consider what feels nostalgic to you, this could be in the form of colours but also textures and materials that feel familiar. Think textured cushions, cosy throws that have a handmade quality or pieces of vintage furniture that you feel a connection to.
The colours in this palette are predominately subdued to help create a warm, welcoming feeling. ‘Clare De Lune’ and ‘Pale Cordovan’ give understated vibrancy and are a nod to recognisable tones we may have experienced growing up. The inclusion of ‘Heat’ or ‘Debonair’ each adds an unexpected touch of brightness; If you’re feeling a little bold, you can draw attention to architectural details such as cornice or ceiling by using a contrasting colour from the palette to make these a focus.
If the idea of painting a wall isn’t for you, these colours can be easily introduced through furnishings and objects like cushions, vases or a feature chair that ties into the overall warm and welcoming space. On the subject of warmth - when we speak to warm versus cool-toned colours, we’re referring to warm being those in the red, orange and yellow families. These typically breathe energy, positivity and a sense of happiness and passion into a room. Cool-toned colours are those in the green, blue and purple families; these typically evoke feelings of relaxation, calm and being nurtured.
