Without completely erasing the joy of the holidays, let me be the first to remind you that the new year is almost here, bringing with it a fresh start and, most importantly, fresh trends. And nowhere are we more excited than Livingetc, where color, design, and stylish interiors are our raison d'etre.

To prepare for 2024's new interior design trends, I spoke to Tiffany Duggan, founder of the London-based Studio Duggan and one of Livingetc's favorite industry voices, to hear more about the color combinations she's loving — and I'm betting these pairings will persist well into January, February, and beyond.

"I’m really loving Dutch Orange by Edward Bulmer – it’s not for the faint of heart, but it is such a warm happy color," Tiffany told me. "I love it with cream, blue, or deep [eggplant]."

Pictured above, Dutch Orange is Edward Bulmer's homage to John Fowler's iconic paint schemes. It's bright and inviting, so perhaps heed Tiffany's warning if you're not a fan of such tones, but it's also unique and stylish, certainly unlike the palette of most of your friends' living rooms. 

If you'd like to stand out next year, this could very well be the color trend for you. Just pair it with one of Tiffany's suggestions and you're off to the races. To help you get a headstart, I've compiled a bit of shopping below — some classic pieces in colors as similar to Dutch Orange as possible, followed by accents in cream, blue, or eggplant. Mix and match as you so choose and watch the compliments just rush in.
