One of the best parts of our jobs as interior designers and design partners is keeping our finger on the pulse of the latest interior design trends expected to shape our spaces.
After working with our partners and preparing for the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s Kitchen & Bath Industry Show as well as the National Association of Home Builders’ International Builders Show, I’m excited to share my insights on what’s hot in the world of interior design and how you can infuse your home with fresh ideas to stay ahead of the curve in 2024.
1. Joy of Living
A captivating interior design trend focusing on infusing spaces with positivity and happiness takes center stage for the new year. It’s all about creating environments that radiate joy and celebrate the little moments of life. Rich colors, playful patterns, and an emphasis on comfortable, inviting furnishings are key to bringing this trend to life, making your home a place where you can truly revel in the art of gathering and the joy of living.
2. Sustainable Chic
Sustainability continues to dominate the design world, but in 2024, it’s all about “Sustainable Chic.” We’ll see a fusion of eco-friendly materials, energy-efficient solutions, and stylish aesthetics. Think reclaimed wood, recycled fabrics, and energy-saving lighting, all coming together to create beautifully sustainable interiors.
3. Biophilic Bliss
“Biophilic design” is the buzzword for 2024. Embracing the connection between nature and our well-being, this trend incorporates natural elements such as indoor greenery, organic textures, and earthy color palettes. It’s about bringing the outdoors in and creating spaces that enhance our sense of calm and rejuvenation.
4. Tech-Infused Comfort
Our homes are becoming smarter and more comfortable than ever before. “Tech-Infused Comfort” is about seamlessly integrating technology into our daily lives while maintaining a cozy and inviting atmosphere. From smart thermostats and lighting to voice-activated appliances, the future of design is all about convenience and ease.
5. Muted Tones & Bold Pops
In 2024, we’ll see a shift towards muted color palettes with pops of bold, contrasting accents. Subdued neutrals provide a soothing backdrop, while vibrant hues inject energy and personality. It’s a delightful juxtaposition that creates depth and visual interest in every room.
6. Flexibility & Functionality
The way we live and work is evolving, and so is our home design. Versatile and multifunctional furniture and spaces are key. We’ll explore how to make the most of your square footage, with adaptable layouts and furniture that can transform to meet your changing needs.
7. Artisanal Craftsmanship
Handcrafted, one-of-a-kind pieces are making a comeback. In 2024, we’ll celebrate “Artisanal Craftsmanship,” with a focus on unique, locally made items that tell a story and add character to your space. Whether it’s handmade ceramics, custom furniture, or bespoke textiles, this trend honors the beauty of craftsmanship.
These trends are sure to inspire your interior design journey in 2024. Whether you’re a design enthusiast or just looking to refresh your space, these ideas will help you create a home that’s both on-trend and uniquely your own. Stay tuned for more design tips and insights here on the blog.
