INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS 2024
5 decorating trends to watch out for 2024
interior design trends 2024 / #01 Moody Hues and Old Fashioned colors
While neutral palettes have dominated interior design in recent years, 2024 is ushering in a resurgence of moody and old-fashioned hues. Burgundy red, deep teal, chartreuse – old style colors are making a comeback, for a whole style which is elegant, sophisticated but at the same time expresses a sense of melancholy which perfectly fits the current times we are living.
interior design trends 2024 / #02 Curves only where needed
As I was predicting last year, 2023 would have been all about curves and arches – and so, it was. The use of curves brings a sense of playfulness and movement, encouraging a dynamic interaction with the environment and curves are also often good for ergonomics. In some cases curves make sense – in others, definetely not. Next year will be about using curved shapes only where they are needed and if they really fits into the design, matching them together with a return of straight and sharp shapes.
interior design trends 2024 / #03 The year of aluminium
On top of my material predictions of this year ( including those shared in the Trendbook | Interior Trends 2024 From Milano ), aluminum is already renowned for its exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, providing durability without adding excessive bulk. Its corrosion-resistant properties make it ideal for both indoor and outdoor applications, ensuring longevity and minimal maintenance. Furthermore, aluminum is highly malleable, allowing for intricate and versatile designs that cater to a wide range of styles. Its versatility, durability, and eco-friendly profile collectively make aluminum an excellent choice for designers seeking a combination of functionality, aesthetics, and environmental responsibility.
interior design trends 2024 / #04 The semi-open plan
Open space has been a huge trend in home design for many years – often synonymous with modernity and being in step with times. But before it was not like this – for example, Italian houses used to have living and kitchen separated until the 2000s, when big open plans became one of the most desired features of a house design. The adjustment for many to work and oversee children has brought a need for separated spaces, where we can just close the door to switch functions. Other than this – a semi open plan allows to decorate space differently and be more creative with colors, wall decorations, or creative partitions.
interior design trends 2024 / #05 Upcycling becomes mainstream
Upcycling is the practice of repurposing discarded or unused items to create new and often more valuable products. As sustainability takes center stage in consumer consciousness, upcycling aligns seamlessly with the ethos of reducing waste and promoting environmental responsibility. Plus, upcycled pieces are totally unique and tell a story. In a world full of generic stuff, having something with character and history is where it’s at. It’s not just about being trendy; it’s about being smart and doing our something good for the planet at the same time.
As we embrace the design landscape of 2024, these trends offer a glimpse into the future of interior aesthetics. To get a deeper and better understanding of trends, I invite you to join my trend program TRENDBARK.
