How to Bring 2024’s Coolest Colour Trend Into Your Home

‘Peach Fuzz’ may be Pantone’s colour of the year, but you’ll need to look to the other side of the colour wheel to discover the shade dominating the 2024 forecasts of interior trend experts.

From luxurious navy to peaceful cornflower, blue is the “new neutral” you can expect to see splashed across walls, accessories, and soft furnishings over the next 12 months.

With earthy shades of green in vogue last year, blue is a natural and versatile extension of the trend for bringing nature-inspired tones indoors.

If the idea of repainting your entire living space fills you with dread, the easiest way to inject 2024’s coolest colour trend into your home is with a few artfully placed accessories. From investing in fresh bedding to updating your crockery, making a few key purchases is a low-commitment way to embrace this ethereal hue.

Even better if these pieces are multifunctional – just like our R1 Mk4 radio, which combines impactful aesthetics with an immersive, class-leading audio performance that belies its compact build.

Now available in an elegant Midnight Blue finish, it delivers a pop of subtly sophisticated colour as well as filling any room with the sound of DAB/DAB+/FM radio and high-quality Bluetooth streaming.

The allure of the R1 Mk4’s new colourway goes beyond its striking appearance and great sound. Boasting an OLED display, versatile USB-C charge and playback port, switchable auxiliary input, and headphone output, it’s designed to elevate your everyday life with sweet symphonies.

A refreshed look for an essential piece of Ruark design, R1 Mk4 Midnight Blue is available exclusively at John Lewis.
