The Californian paint manufacturer Behr has elected the color Cracked Pepper color of the year 2024. It is a matte black whose intensity varies depending on the ambient light. Regardless, it is an elegant color which confirms the trend for dark colors in our interiors, reflecting the need to assert oneself and create a protective cocoon in the face of increasing external aggressions.
"AN ELEGANT COLOR THAT CREATES A PROTECTIVE COCOON."
Every year, the American paint manufacturer Behr elects the color of the coming year, the one that we will see everywhere in the world of interior decoration. The black color Cracked Pepper, which can be translated as Crushed Pepper, therefore radically replaces the “White Canvas” of 2023. A 180-degree turn that reflects a need for boldness and affirmation.
This matte, dark color transforms any interior into an elegant setting thanks to the sobriety and minimalism it evokes. It can be applied in all rooms of the house and goes ideally with high-end materials such as marble and stone, whose veins it brings out, noble wood species and leathers. It harmonizes ideally with neutral tones such as whites, ochres and warm beiges to create a refined and friendly atmosphere. Also, it goes well with leopard print and small geometric patterns if you want to recreate a bourgeois and bohemian atmosphere of the 30s and 70s.
