Interior Design Trends for 2024
In the Truline interior design studio we’ve been researching what trends will be popular in 2024. In 2023 there was plenty of changes globally, creating challenges domestically. Which has resulted in a want to slow things down and create calm & joy where we can control this. This is being explored through 2 opposing trends even though the underlying reasons for them are the same.
Neutral not minimal interior design
A desire to connect to nature and to relax is where this interior design trend is rooted. Creating a cosy environment which is more lived in rather than a pristine and perfect spaces.
Use neutral tones and an earth colour palette with browns, reds, and terracotta accents to create comfortable surroundings. There’s also the re-emergence of magnolia rather than pure white as a main balance colour.
For textures there’s a lean towards the natural looking fabrics. However, this is not compromised by focusing too much on authentic fabrics, but focus more on comfort than previously within the more minimal approach to this trend.
A boucle accent chair in magnolia would be the perfect way to summaries this trend.
Personalised vintage maximalism in interior design
Embracing the reuse, recycle and refurbish culture, this trend is all about building and growing an aesthetic organically through hand-me-downs, thrifting, and unique antiques.
Going bold and on the darker side with colours, and experimenting with application. Early adopters are painting woodwork and ceilings to match walls to create a dramatic and cosy environment.
This trend is all about eclectic rather than matching. Chrome and silver metals are increasing in popularity again. The mix of these cold tones and the warm tones which have become more popular over the last decade, will add to this eclectic look.
Art gallery walls are still popular however more people will be choosing one large statement piece or mural on a wall rather just a mix of frames.
The dark kitchen is still popular but there’s a shift from marbles to other surfaces, for example stone, quartz, and granite.
Interior design trend overview
A trend that bridges both styles is the rise in bespoke and artisanal furniture and artwork. As well as these main trends are a few other trends that can be spotted across multiple styles. You might have noticed more and more Instagram and TikTok videos of people adding traditional style panelling to walls, especially on staircases and in hallways. The juxtaposition of right angles and curves is becoming popular with architects and designers. We’ll also see a trickle effect of these trends into commercial design over the coming years, as flexible working and heterogeneous work environments increase in popularity.
