Besides her acting talents and quirky personality, Zooey Deschanel is known for her knack for color. From her green couch to her turquoise kitchen tiles, the actress and musician seems to be able to sniff out a color trend from a mile away. The walls of the home Zooey shares with her husband Jonathan Scott are no different. The cream wallpaper with deep berry and pink trees is so stylish and versatile.

Furthermore, the rich berry shade in Zooey Deschanel's wallpaper embodies one of the biggest upcoming color trends for 2024, according to experts.

Chelsea Clark, Head of Brand at wallpaper company Lucie Annabel, states: 'A trending shade for this autumn, damson has a timeless quality, meaning as trends come and go throughout the years, this classic color will remain stylish.' Not only is the shade on trend, but the allure of Zooey's wall decor will last for years to come.

Chelsea continues, 'Perfect for spaces where you want to evoke a sense of coziness, this rich shade creates a great backdrop, adding depth and enveloping the room in an inviting and warm ambiance.' 

Hebe Hatton, Head of Interiors at Homes & Gardens adds: 'The mix of light pink and deeper berry add dimension and an artful edge to the room. The traditional pattern paired with the non-traditional color of Zooey Deschanel's wallpaper makes for an extra cool look.'

Experts also love the way Zooey Deschanel's wallpaper design pairs with the trim in her living room. Hebe says, 'I love the contrast between the traditional, berry-colored wallpaper and the dark wood in Zooey's space. The chocolate brown and pink color scheme is warm and inviting, while the stylish, conventional design adds an air of sophistication.'

On the wallpaper and trim pairing, Chelsea states, 'This rich berry hue pairs perfectly with dark wood, as the complimentary undertones give a dramatic yet cozy feel. A striking but harmonious contrast, these colors paired together to add depth to a room, adding a level of sophistication.'
