5 Interior trends for 2024

5 Interior trends for 2024

Hello, and welcome. Today, we're thrilled to explore five exciting trends that are predicted to influence indoor design in 2024.

Over the past few years, there has been a shift in interior design trends from both ends of the minimal to maximalist spectrum towards a more balanced approach. While cool colors and uber minimalism were popular in the past, there is now a growing interest in warm minimalism. This trend reflects our desire for a softer, warmer, and more sustainable approach to minimalism. On the other end of the spectrum, maximalism is also evolving with a more controlled approach that still incorporates layers of interest for those of us who prefer more vibrant environments. The trend towards balance allows for a personalized expression of our individual styles.

This desire for balance has also led to the emergence of designs that feature clean lines and open spaces but incorporate warmer shades and natural textures and materials. Warm, natural, and nature-inspired spaces continue to be popular in 2024, which is great news because nature never goes out of style. Organic modern design has seen a surge in popularity and shows no signs of slowing down. This style combines organic shapes and natural textures to create a sophisticated yet relaxed aesthetic that we can all appreciate.

One unexpected trend that has gained traction this year is silent luxury, also known as stealth wealth. It is more of a lifestyle movement than a design trend and emphasizes understated elegance, timeless beauty, and high-quality materials. This aesthetic is perfect for those of us who enjoy blending contemporary and traditional elements in a relaxed yet sophisticated manner.

Biophilic design, which is inspired by the underlying philosophy of biophilia, has also influenced many warm and natural designs in recent years. Designs based on biophilia have lasting power due to their calming appearance and soothing effects. To enhance our experience of nature in our homes, we can incorporate elements such as fresh air, natural light, water features, fireplaces, plants, and even spending time with our pets. Additionally, we can indirectly experience nature through materials and decor that represent nature, such as natural fabrics, colors, and shapes.

Blending finishes, furniture, and features from different styles and eras can help create timeless interiors that strike a balance between old and new. Traditional patterns, details, and materials are making a comeback in a fresh way.

Herringbone, an ancient pattern dating back to the Roman Empire, is experiencing a renaissance, adding movement and texture in a classic yet modern way. Fluting and reeding are timeless details that continue to be popular for furniture, cabinets, and accessories. These techniques add texture and interest to clean and modern forms. Zellige tiles, traditional hand-made Moroccan tiles dating back to the 10th century, are also trending. They offer a natural and artisanal look and can be used in kitchen backsplashes, bathrooms, or anywhere we use ceramic tiles. The square shape and varying shades of white make them versatile for modern, neutral, and natural interiors. For those of us who prefer more color, there are deep and bold options available that create a strong visual impact.

Neutrals are timeless, classic, and easy for us to incorporate into any design scheme. The trend is leaning towards warmer neutrals, such as warm whites, grays, off-whites, taupes, and tans, accented with deep browns or blacks. Neutralized versions of colors from the color wheel, such as clay reds, oranges, earthy greens, and yellows, or ethereal blues and violets, are also gaining popularity. Blue has been increasingly used in interior design, and two major paint manufacturers in the United States, Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams, have embraced the color for 2024. Benjamin Moore chose Blue Nova, a deep blue-violet shade, while Sherwin Williams opted for Upward, a neutral light grey-blue that pairs well with warm neutrals for a cool and airy feel. Behr, on the other hand, surprised us by choosing Cracked Pepper, a soft black, as their color of the year for 2024. It can serve as a perfect accent or create a deep backdrop for a dark and moody look.

In conclusion, the trends for 2024 are leaning towards warm, natural, and understated interiors. The balance between minimalism and maximalism allows for our personalized expression of style. Biophilic design continues to influence warm and natural designs, while traditional patterns and materials are making a comeback in a fresh way. Neutrals remain a timeless choice, with a focus on warmer tones. Blue is also gaining popularity, with Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams embracing the color for 2024.
