As we step into the new year, we’re expecting a lot of change. For now, we’re shifting our focus to interior design. It seems that 2024 design trends are reminiscent of days past, with a splash of modernism – a wonderful and intriguing twist.

Let’s take a peek at what’s fashionable this year!

2024 Design trends to look out for


Sustainability is in

In 2024, sustainability is not just a trend; it’s a necessity. Over the years, interior designs have increasingly incorporated eco-friendly materials. These days, you can’t find anything that doesn’t have recycled textiles or sustainably sourced wood.

This is not going anywhere in 2024. Thrifting and restoring furniture continue to gain popularity, too, along with the use of vintage-style pieces.

Smart homes remain popular

Smart home systems remain popular, even with the hints of vintage aesthetics making a comeback. Especially smart lights that can help transform the mood of a room with a push of a button or voice command.

Luckily, smart home hubs look better and often blend seamlessly into most spaces. So, we won’t need to worry about tech looking a little garish on our thrift server table.

2024 Design trends to look out for


Be bold, baby

However, we won’t have to worry about blending things in too much, because bold colours are in! Gone are the days of playing it safe with neutral colours like grey and beige. 2024 sees a resurgence of bold and vibrant hues, like brown, forest green, and splashes of pinks and reds.

Even better, bold patterns and textures are also making a comeback. These elements are used to create focal points in a room or to add a layer of warmth and personality.

Textured surfaces are here

Speaking of texture, it’s taking centre stage this year.

This trend includes the use of various fabrics, wall coverings, and textured paints. Textured surfaces add depth and interest to spaces, creating a more dynamic and inviting environment.

Bye, bye minimalism (sort of)

While minimalism continues to be a strong influence, it’s evolving.

The new minimalism of 2024 is about clean lines and uncluttered spaces, but with injections of personality – be it through a statement piece of art, a bold colour accent, or unique furniture designs.

Local and artisanal touches

As a response to the globalised world, there’s a move towards embracing local and artisanal crafts. Handmade ceramics, local artworks, and artisanal textiles are being used to add a unique and personal touch to interiors.

We’re here for wellness-centric design

Finally, the importance of wellness is reflected in interior design choices. With 2024 being crowned the year of self, this is truly not surprising.

This includes the use of colour psychology, aromatherapy diffusers, meditation spaces, and even the incorporation of workout areas within the home.
