Dutch Boy® Paints unveiled its 2024 One-Coat Color of the Year: Ironside, a deep olive shade with dark undertones that creates a level of comfortable sophistication.

“Creating a space for wellness should be a driving factor in everyday life,” says Ashley Banbury, NCIDQ and color marketing manager, Dutch Boy® Paints. “That’s why taking a natural approach to healthy living and safe spaces is a pivotal part of the current landscape. Dutch Boy® Paints’ 2024 One-Coat Color of the Year—the stunning, strong Ironside—incorporates all the above in one bold color and can be applied in one single coat.”

Ironside is rooted in comfort and creates a space that is elegant and charming. As dark shades become more appreciated in the home, this deep olive is versatile in wide-open spaces or enclosed comfy places, reflecting well-being from all angles.

Ironside lays the foundation for three designed color palettes that make up the Dutch Boy® Paints’ 2024 One Coat Color Trend Forecast. By building on the deep, olive tones of Ironside, these palettes deliver a multifaceted look that’s comforting and simple, while also embracing individual design styles:

Embrace Palette

As homeowners place an emphasis on the comfort of slowing down, the Embrace palette elevates a room as consumers make their homes a primary place for self-care and wellness. The calming hues paint the picture of a retreat to rest and recharge with shades including Antique White, Whale’s Tail and Heritage Brown.

Retreat Palette

In a quest to be present, we crave simplicity in our surroundings. The Retreat color palette gives us peace of mind to explore new angles in our lives as we take extra time for ourselves. Ironside is the color that ties Sanded Grout, Wild Orange and Antiquated Olive together, bringing both cleanliness and warmth to the home.

Inspire Palette

Personal expression and creative outlets have become therapeutic. Bold uses of pattern, color and curated spaces in this color palette create self-inspired trends and environments. Explore color by combining shades like Ultra White, Pineapple Flan and Strawberry Shade.

“Dutch Boy’s 2024 One-Coat Color Trend Forecast speaks to homeowners, DIYers and anyone with specific tastes in color selection,” says Michelle Bangs, senior brand manager, Dutch Boy® Paints. “We’re taking a comforting approach; embracing restoration and nature, while bringing harmony into the home. These color palettes are easy to customize to complement the personal style and preference of DIYers everywhere.”
