Matt brings tech and retail experience to his role as Head of Home at Pinterest UK, where he works closely with major retailers and top interior creators to forecast and share emerging home trends.

Before we deep-dive into the Pinterest color palette, we had to speak to the pros— starting with Pinterest's Head of Home, Matt Siberry.

"As the ultimate destination for home inspiration, we’ve created our very own colour palette inspired by our Pinterest Predicts trends report for 2024," he says. "We're here to help people plan which colours to shop and use for their homes, and this is the first time we’ve ever released color palette predictions."

When it comes to translating these tones to home spaces, color expert and content editor for Livingetc, Aditi Sharma Maheshwari, recommends leaning into a few tones in particular.

"The Pinterest palette is wonderfully wide-ranging and has something for everyone," she says. "I can see the Desert Orange, Moss Green, and Mocha Brown playing out well in interiors, with the Gummy Pink adding a pop of color.

"These colors are in line with the current mood across both fashion and interiors, and can create the perfect, on-trend environment."

We're welcomed to the 2024 Pinterest color palette with one of its most inviting shades: Desert Orange. Similar to Pantone's Peach Fuzz — their 2024 Color Of The Year — this orange hue brings a cozy, comforting feel, making it perfect to surround yourself with in a snuggly bedroom.

"We’ve seen warmer colors being top of the small space color trends for 2024, with designers leaning toward shades ideal for making homes feel cozy and inviting," our trends writer Eve Smallman says. "Desert Orange, in all its hues, will do all this and more."

Meet Gummy Pink: the cooler, more sophisticated older sister of the Barbiecore-esque magenta hues we saw dominating the fashion, pop culture, interiors scenes in 2023.

"At its full saturation, Gummy Pink is a super-vibrant shade, so you wouldn’t want it to dominate the space," Eve explains. "Think of it as an accent to use with art prints and soft furnishings, or lean into the pastel and light versions for a full bedding set."

Pinterest's Head of Home, Matt Siberry, agrees.

"Those looking for a more subtle approach can flush their rooms with seasonal pink tulips or blush-toned candles," he says.

Last year marked the arrival of coastal grandmother and coastal cowgirl decor inspiration. This year, Pinterest is predicting a continued rise in our love for the sea through makeup looks, ocean-based aesthetics, and of course, home decor.

"Aqua Blue is a color known for its calming qualities, thanks to its ocean-like serenity," Real Homes trends writer, Eve, explains. "Drifting off to sleep with blue skies and fluffy clouds in mind is such a dreamy thought, which is why this shade is one of the best for bedrooms."

"Not only does the color evoke relaxed and calming undertones, but it can also help to create the illusion of a larger space," Matt adds.

"As homes are becoming more like sanctuaries, there's a newfound love for nature-inspired hues that have an inherently calming effect," color theory expert, Aditi explains. "Moss Green can create a perfect, calming mood and environment in a bedroom."

Moss green can easily be brought in to your small bedroom with tropical indoor plants, which will refresh your small bedroom and give it a natural-looking finish.

Coffee lovers, rejoice. Pinterest's final color in its palette is perfect for you. Inspired by all the best aspects of your morning brew, Mocha Brown is a versatile, elevated neutral, and can be used in every element of bedroom decor.

"For those who prefer more neutral interiors, Mocha Brown balances out colourful spaces with deep earthy tones," Matt says. "Inspired by the Cafecore and Western Gothic Predicts trends, the palette ranges from greyish browns to deep caramel hues."

"Whether you like a milky latte color or a deep americano hue, Mocha Brown comes in lots of delicious shades," Eve says. "It brings a cozy vibe that aligns with Pinterest's wider interiors predictions for 2024, and I love the idea of carrying the coffee shop vibes to your home beyond the kitchen."

Making use of Pinterest's color palette in your small bedroom is the perfect way to stay in touch with your favorite aspects of 2024's trends, even outside of the world of interiors.

"Trends in interiors and fashion are always entwined, with people building their desired aesthetic through their clothing and decor choices," Eve concludes.
