2024 Design Trends

Burgundy and Plum: The Bold and Elegant Colors

As we move into 2024, there are several design trends that are going to be popular. One trend that is gaining traction is the use of burgundy and plum in interior design. These deep, rich colors add a bold and regal look to any home. Whether it’s in the form of paint colors, furniture, fabrics, or small decor pieces, you will start to notice these colors everywhere. They are perfect for small closed-off rooms like powder rooms, laundry rooms, offices, or Butler’s pantries. You can have a ton of fun with these colors by going all out and painting the trim, walls, and ceiling in the same color. This creates a color-washed effect that is extremely elegant. Burgundy and plum also pair nicely with warm neutrals, making them versatile choices for any space.

All-Out Paint Colors: Farewell to Accent Walls

Another design trend that is fizzling out is the use of accent walls. Instead of only painting or wallpapering one wall, the new trend is to go all out and include the bold touch on every single wall. This creates a more cohesive and modern look. If you have participated in the accent wall trend in the past, consider taking the paint color you already have and running it around the entire space to bring your home up to date. An alternative to accent walls is painting a door. This adds a pop of color without the need for an accent wall.

Midtone Wood: A Rich and Versatile Option

When it comes to wood tones, we have seen a lot of light white oak in recent years. However, in 2024, midtone woods are making a comeback. These woods are easy to pair with and bring a rich color to any space. They are not too dark or too light, making them a versatile choice. Midtone woods also make it easier to pair paint colors, furniture, and accessories without clashing. While light tone flooring remains a safe option, you will start to see more midtone options this year.

Natural Stones: Embracing Weathering and Patina

When it comes to countertops and flooring, natural stones are going to be a popular choice in 2024. Embracing the weathering and patina that can happen with natural stones adds character and beauty to your home. These stones, such as travertine, limestone, soapstone, slate, quartzite, granite, and marble, have more texture and a matte, weathered, or honed look. This trend moves away from the high gloss look that was popular in the past. Natural stones add warmth, texture, and timelessness to any space.

Architectural Arches: Adding Custom and Detailed Touches

Arches are another design trend that is sticking around in 2024. Architectural arches and arched shapes in furniture and decor instantly add a custom and detailed look to any home. They provide a soft effect and help even out square and angular spaces. While painted arches are currently out of trend, arches in furniture, cabinets, and mirrors continue to add a special effect to any space.

Modern Cottage: A Cozy and Elegant European Look

The modern cottage or English cottage style is becoming increasingly popular in 2024. This style incorporates built-in pieces that look like furniture, adding a cozy European look to your home. Built-in hutches, inset cabinets, and other architectural details create a timeless and elegant atmosphere. If you lean towards a traditional or transitional look, consider incorporating modern cottage or English cottage style into your renovation or redecorating plans.

Warm Color Palette: Goodbye Cool Gray Tones

2024 is all about warm color palettes. The cool gray tones that have been popular for so long are now being replaced with warm tones. Deep chocolate brown is especially trending, adding contrast, elegance, and warmth to any space. It is a versatile color that can be introduced gradually through smaller items like pillows and throw blankets, or as larger pieces of furniture. Chocolate brown pairs well with a variety of design styles and is a timeless choice.

Quiet Luxury: Simple and Quality Design

The quiet luxury look is all about simplicity and quality. It involves tailored, simple, and clutter-free design elements that create an elegant and timeless look. Muted color palettes, clean lines, and good quality fabrics are key to achieving this style. By investing in larger pieces that speak for themselves, you can create the look of an expensive space without going overboard on details and clutter.

Monochromatic Spaces: Doubling Up on Colors

If you want to make a statement with your design, consider creating monochromatic spaces. This involves matching your furniture or fabric color with your wall color. By doubling up on the same color, you can create a luxurious and expansive look. This trend works particularly well with fabrics like velvet, corduroy, linen, or leather, as they stand out against the matching wall color. Monochromatic spaces also tend to look larger due to the lack of definitive lines.

Create Your Own Style: Eclectic and Unique

Instead of sticking to a specific design style, 2024 is all about creating an eclectic look that speaks to your personality and style. By thrifting, antiquing, and choosing furniture and decor pieces that you truly love, you can create a beautifully unique space. The key is to mix impactful pieces with neutral elements to achieve a balanced look. Don’t be afraid to step outside traditional design styles and create your own.

These are just a few of the design trends that you can expect to see in 2024. Whether you’re planning a renovation or thinking about redecorating, incorporating these trends can help you stay up to date and create a stylish and timeless home.
