As spring approaches, it’s the perfect time to infuse your home with the hottest home decor trends for 2024. In this blog post I will explore the top 6 home decor trends for spring, and provide styling tips to help you add them into you home with ease.
Top 6 Spring Home Decor Trends for 2024 And How To Style Them
1. Earthy Tones
In 2024, we’re all going to be embracing the beauty of nature by incorporating tones inspired by the natural world like greens, browns, and warm neutrals into our homes.
As a starting point you can look at the colours of the year picked out by leading experts:
- According Pinterest the on trend new colour for 2024 is Apricot Crush. This a warm peachy shade that looks so good in so many rooms – and it will sit beautiful with creams, tans and neutrals.
- While Valspar paints announced it’s 2024 paint shade of the year as ‘Renew Blue’ which is a soft shade inspired by the sky which will create a soothing environment in your home. Blues are notoriously difficult to decorate with as they can appear cold but this shade has one has a hit of warmth to it so it is a good alternative.
- While Dulux has picked out Sweet Embrace as it’s colour of the year. It’s a pale plumy shade which is also a good neutral tone that adds warm and depth to our interiors.
Which ever shade you pick, all these soft, neutral colours create a sense of calm and serenity in our interiors, perfect for the spring season. Opt for furniture pieces, such as sofas or chairs, in shades of moss green or rich terracotta.
Styling Tip: Pair earthy tones with natural materials like rattan or bamboo to create a cohesive and organic look. Consider adding plants or floral arrangements to enhance the natural ambiance. Then add pattern like botanical prints or leafy wallpaper to bring the outdoors inside.
2. Sustainable Decorating
We’re going to see this year ahead, a strong movement towards sustainable and eco-friendly materials which are going to dominate our home decor.
This trend is more of a social movement – where home purchases will become more thrifty. Rather than buying new, we’ll be looking for that bargain of the century in vintage shops or junk stores. Whether that means trawling your local forums or swapping goods on apps like on eBay, Facebook Marketplace or Car boot sales, you’ll want to decorate your rooms with unique treasures.
The cost of living crisis is a giant excuse to hop on this interior trend for 2024. Perhaps it will change our perception of money and make us savvy spenders – perhaps even eco-warriors who get a kick from the swap, share and recycle idea.
If you do need to buy something new, then this trend is about investing in furniture made from recycled materials or renewable resources, like bamboo or cork. Add eco-conscious accents, such as organic cotton or linen textiles, to create a stylish and environmentally-friendly space.
Styling Tip: Incorporate natural textures like jute rugs or wicker baskets to complement the eco-friendly theme. And make small changes like opting for energy-efficient lighting options like LED bulbs to reduce your home’s carbon footprint.
3. Contemporary trompe L’Oeil
This trend is brilliant for the crafty ones among us. Trompe L’Oeil means literally ‘deceive the eye’, and it is an artistic device and an interesting paint technique for walls that has been used for centuries. It adds a bit of unexpected humour to the home, a talking point that will make both you and guests marvel with amusement, something that folds nicely into living room trends.
I think if you love to add an instant trend into your home, this could be the look for you. But rather than painting a realistic countryside scene, I think you could be more creative with it – turning your walls into a canvas for brushwork art!
Styling Tip: Start small using tester pots of paints. And then mix and match on trend patterns and colours in your artwork to create a visually exciting look. Embrace a relaxed and eclectic style with vibrant colours, global patterns, and unique textures in the rest of your room to pick out your design.
4. QuieT Luxury
Quiet Luxury is about paring back your home to what’s essential, and seeking out the chic design elements found in high-tech minimalism of the 90s. But what you do have in your end, is luxurious, tactile and elegantly beautiful.
This look features a pared-back colour palette that allows you to showcase your treasured items things, and it’s characterised by soft textures, shapes, and colours, bringing airiness and light to our homes. And statement materials like marble, polished wood and textures like wool and boucle.
Not good news for the maximalists or colour lovers among us! But don’t worry there are plenty of other home decor trends you can try.
Styling Tip: Create focal points using statement furniture pieces, like a curved shaped sofa, a sweeping rug or an oversized, ornate mirror. Don’t be afraid to mix contrasting patterns and colours, but keep the overall aesthetic cohesive by incorporating a unifying colourscheme.

5. OUtdoor bathrooms
Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow debuted her outdoor home spa to the world, designers have been thinking of new ways to fold this feeling into the decor. The materials, the textures, the steam rooms…and now, the return of the outdoor shower and bathtubs has become a part of bathroom trends.
When designing your outdoor bathroom, incorporating lots of natural elements into the scheme like stone, pebbles, ceramics and marbles. Then add lots of greenery as well as a roof open to the sky to flood that space with natural light.
Styling Tip: If you can’t have an outdoor bathroom in your garden, then consider adding large windows or skylights into your current bathing space to maximise natural light and add lots of indoor plants to complete the look.
