As we move deeper into 2024, the world of interior design continues to evolve, offering exciting new trends that help us redefine or upgrade our living spaces and inspire our creativity. From playful accents to soothing hues, here’s a glimpse into the top home decor trends shaping the year ahead.
1. Chunky and Playful Accents: In 2024, home decor takes a bold turn with chunky and playful accents stealing the spotlight. Oversized vases, sculptural furniture, and quirky decor pieces inject personality and individuality into any space. These statement pieces not only add visual interest but also exude sophistication. Consider dusting off old objet d’art and family heirlooms, review the pieces that you relate to the most and that fit in with your colour scheme, then find the best places to showcase them. We have a range of Room Dividers, Bookshelves and Cubes for your eclectic mix of decor pieces.
2. Soothing Blues: Serenity meets energy with soothing blues dominating the colour palette for 2024. From tranquil sky blues to deep navy hues, various shades of blue have been named the colour of the year by leading paint companies. Blue rooms create a sense of calmness while infusing spaces with vitality, making them a popular choice for interior designers and homeowners alike. If a blue wall demands a little too much commitment to the trend, consider painting some of your furniture in hues of blue. We have a wide selection of chalk paints and stains for the DIY enthusiasts or try our in-house services where we can elevate your furniture through painting techniques. Ask in-store about colours, options and styles.
3. Statement Ceilings: Plain ceilings are a thing of the past as statement ceilings take centre stage. Decorative trim moulds, wainscoting, coffered designs, and other intricate details elevate the look of any room, adding depth and character to the ‘fifth’ wall. Whether adorned with wallpaper or painted in bold hues, statement ceilings are sure to make a lasting impression.
4. Biophilic Design: In an age where connection to nature is more important than ever, biophilic design continues into 2024 from last year, as a prominent trend. This design approach incorporates natural elements and materials into interiors, blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. From living green walls to organic textures and earthy colour palettes, biophilic design fosters a sense of well-being and harmony with the environment.
