Interior Design Trends of 2024
Here is a look at some trends we expect to see in the year to come, and what we saw trending in the latter part of 2023.

Warm Brushed Gold or Brass Finishes
A luxurious aesthetic with timeless elegance. Gold and brass finishes often exude a sense of luxury and sophistication. They can add a touch of opulence to any space, making it feel more high-end and elegant. Unlike some trends that come and go, gold and brass hardware have a timeless quality. They have been used in various design styles throughout history and can seamlessly blend into both contemporary and traditional settings. The warm tones of gold and brass add a richness to a room’s color palette. This warmth can create a cozy and inviting atmosphere, making the space more visually appealing. Gold and brass hardware can serve as statement pieces in a room. Whether it’s a bold faucet in a kitchen or a set of eye-catching doorknobs, these elements can draw attention and become focal points in the overall design. There has been a resurgence of interest in vintage and retro styles, and gold and brass hardware align with these aesthetics. Using these finishes can help achieve a vintage or mid-century modern look

Green and Blue Cabinetry
Coming in a variety of shades, blues and greens offer a wide range of colors, from soft pastels to deep, saturated tones. This variety allows for customization, enabling homeowners to find a shade that suits their taste and complements the overall design scheme. In neutral or monochromatic spaces, blue or green cabinetry can be used to introduce a pop of color without being overwhelming. This can add visual interest and break up the monotony of a single color palette. Influences from design trends, such as the popularity of coastal or farmhouse styles, can contribute to the rise of blue and green cabinetry. These colors align with the fresh, airy, and relaxed aesthetics often associated with these trends. Green and blue are colors commonly found in nature, evoking feelings of tranquility and connection to the outdoors. As people seek to bring elements of nature into their homes, these colors are chosen to create a calming and serene atmosphere.

Quiet Luxury
This term often leans towards timeless design elements and avoids trends that may quickly become dated. Classic materials, such as marble, fine woods, and quality textiles, are chosen for their enduring appeal. Every aspect of the design is carefully considered, and there is a focus on meticulous craftsmanship. From intricate moldings to handcrafted furniture, attention to detail is a hallmark of quiet luxury. The color palette tends to be muted, featuring neutral tones and subtle hues. Earthy tones, soft grays, and muted pastels create a serene and sophisticated atmosphere, avoiding overly vibrant or bold colors. The use of luxurious, high-quality materials is a key characteristic. This may include materials like fine woods, natural stones, plush fabrics, and polished metals. These materials contribute to the overall sense of richness and refinement. Rather than using an abundance of flashy accessories, quiet luxury often opts for a curated selection of sophisticated and meaningful items. These accessories may include carefully chosen artwork, elegant sculptures, or statement pieces that complement the overall design. Embracing natural light is common in quiet luxury design. Large windows, strategically placed mirrors, and light-colored surfaces contribute to a bright and airy atmosphere, enhancing the overall sense of luxury.

Statement Wallpaper
Statement wallpaper is experiencing a resurgence in interior design for several reasons, reflecting shifts in design trends, lifestyle preferences, and a desire for personalized and bold spaces. In an era where individuality is celebrated, people are seeking ways to make their homes unique. Statement wallpaper allows individuals to express their personality and style through bold patterns, colors, and designs that may not be achievable with traditional paint. The market for statement wallpaper has expanded, offering a wide range of designs to suit various tastes and aesthetics. Whether it’s botanical prints, geometric patterns, or bold colors, homeowners can find wallpaper that complements their design vision. Retro and vintage designs have made a comeback, and statement wallpaper is often associated with mid-century modern or vintage aesthetics. Nostalgia and a desire to incorporate elements from the past contribute to the resurgence of wallpaper as a design choice.

Bold Accent Walls
Speaking of accenting walls as a focal point, there has been a higher demand for a unique space in homes. Creating an accent wall in your home can add visual interest and impact to a space, serving as a design feature that draws attention and enhances the overall aesthetics. By introducing a different color, pattern, or texture, an accent wall can break up the monotony of a single-color scheme, adding visual interest and depth to the room. It becomes a canvas for creative expression and design experimentation. In bedrooms or living areas, an accent wall can create a sense of coziness. This is especially true when using warm or dark colors, rich textures, or materials like reclaimed wood or exposed brick. Compared to fully redecorating or repainting an entire room, creating an accent wall is a relatively inexpensive way to transform the look and feel of a space. It allows for a change in style without a major investment.

Natural Wood Tones
Natural wood tones have become increasingly popular in renovation projects for a variety of reasons. Natural wood tones add warmth and a sense of coziness to a space. The organic and earthy feel of wood creates an inviting atmosphere, making rooms feel more comfortable and welcoming. Wood tones help to incorporate natural elements into interior spaces. It has a timeless and classic aesthetic that transcends trends. It can seamlessly integrate into various design styles, from traditional to contemporary, ensuring longevity in its appeal. Natural wood tones are versatile and can be used in different applications, such as flooring, cabinetry, furniture, and accent features. The ability to use wood in diverse ways allows for continuity and cohesion in design. Pairing wood with modern materials like glass or metal creates a visually interesting contrast.

Cozy, Romantic Living Spaces
Cozy living spaces have been gaining popularity in interior design. In recent years, there has been a notable shift towards prioritizing comfort and well-being in interior design. Cozy living spaces with plush furnishings, soft textiles, and warm lighting contribute to a sense of comfort and relaxation. The idea of the home as a sanctuary has become more pronounced, especially considering the increased amount of time people spend at home. Creating a cozy and romantic atmosphere helps to turn the home into a place of refuge and relaxation. The Danish concept of “hygge,” which emphasizes a feeling of coziness and contentment, has influenced interior design trends. Hygge-inspired spaces often feature soft lighting, natural materials, and comfortable textiles, creating a warm and inviting ambiance.
