York Wallcoverings reveals their 2024 color of the year

The design industry leader presents the color of the year “Bay Brown” with a 2024 Trends Palette featuring organic hues. 

YORK, PA (November 2023) – York Wallcoverings, the oldest and largest wallcoverings manufacturer in the U.S., reveals Bay Brown as its 2024 Color of the Year. Inspired by organic hues of wood, soil and roots, Bay Brown inspires intimate, luxurious living spaces. 

“With the emergence of quiet luxury, we’re seeing a gravitation toward warm, understated neutrals across fashion and furnishings alike, and Bay Brown reflects a rich base color that’s incredibly versatile, yet very personal and unique,” said Carol Miller, color and trend expert, York Wallcoverings.

“Bay Brown is a staple hue seen in many current and emerging trends. In the design category, we continue to be drawn to the natural world: the forest, mushrooms, the equestrian lifestyle. Academia aesthetics are surging, and this color is front and center in dark leather upholstery, wood furniture, and the retro styles of the 60s and 70s.


Bay Brown is on the rise in fashion, with chocolate-y tones making waves on the runways this fall. We’re eager to see how designers choose to layer browns with other neutrals, biophilic greens and bold bright tones in their projects next year.
