As we enter 2024, a number of interior design trends are emerging that promise to shape home aesthetics over the next year. From expansions of existing styles to completely novel concepts, there are many exciting developments ahead.
This comprehensive guide outlines 15 key 2024 interior design trends to help you understand what’s on the horizon.
Dedicated Home Offices
The pandemic solidified home offices as an essential space for many. With remote and hybrid work arrangements on the rise over the last couple of years, having a dedicated, well-designed workspace at home has become a high priority. We expect to see this trend continue strong into 2024 and beyond.
When looking to design a functional home office, focus first on an ergonomic layout suited to your work tasks. Include key details like sit/stand desk capabilities, monitor mounts, proper lighting, and USB charging ports.
Don’t forget storage needs for supplies, files, and equipment. The right organizational solutions will keep clutter at bay. Select comfortable, supportive seating that also conveys professionalism for client video calls. Finally, add personal touches like artwork, greenery, and warm accessories to finish the inviting, productive environment.
- Remote work fuels the ongoing popularity of home offices
- Prioritize ergonomic, functional layouts to support work
- Organization and storage essentials reduce desk clutter
- Professional yet comfortable furnishings balance demands
- Personal accents boost focus while humanizing space
Another trend that maintains momentum is biophilic design – interiors shaped by connection to nature. Expect ongoing incorporation of natural materials like stone, wood, bamboo, and sustainable fibers. Living elements such as plants, indoor gardens, and water features will further roots.
Cues from nature also translate in free-flowing curved forms, natural light, and organic shapes, breaking rigid, straight lines.
Creating a multi-sensory experience, biophilic elements engage more of our senses. Examples include woodsy scents, textural plants, the relaxing sound of water, or a visual mural depicting nature.
Bringing nature’s beauty into the home promotes organic well-being. Sustainable approaches also characterize this trend from renewable materials to energy-efficient building techniques.
- Natural materials and living elements trend for their beauty and wellness benefits
- Curved lines and asymmetric shapes reflect irregularity in nature
- Sensory experiences strengthen connections through sight, sound, scent
- Sustainable construction materials and techniques align with ethos
- Accessible biophilic additions personalize spaces at varying budgets
Bold Statement Stones
In 2024, we’ll see bolder use of statement stones moving from countertops into stunning feature walls, fireplace facades, flooring, and beyond.
While staples like marble, travertine, and quartzite remain constant, unique statement stones in vivid jewel tones, striking graphic patterns, or most smooth flows will capture attention.
Alternative finishes to polished gloss open new possibilities. Honed, flamed, weathered, and leathered stone finishes relay texture and depth. Get creative by mixing statement stones with contrasting materials like wood or colored concrete for innovative combinations.
When selecting statement stones, visit suppliers to view the unique personality of individual slabs. Precision digital cutting maximizes visual impact. Statement stone tiles offer a cost-effective way to incorporate this drama.
- Vivid hues, striking patterns, and fluid movements define statement stones
- Alternative hand-finished textures add dimensionality
- Mix with contrasting materials for innovative pairings
- View slabs to select pieces with maximum visual impact
- Statement stone tiles create a bold impact for less than slabs
Playful Punches Of Color
While rich saturated shades make confident statements in 2024 design, it’s all about getting the color balance right. Use vibrant hues strategically in doses to uplift neutral backdrops. Consistent color schemes ensure cohesion across bolder touches.
Think accent walls, vivid tile work, brightly colored decor items, or just the front door awakened with a saturated statement shade.
When working bold colors into overall neutral interiors, avoid overwhelming the senses with competing colors vying for attention in every direction.
Find harmony with tones and tints that complement your core color palette. Don’t shy away from color experiments, but include built-in flexibility with paints to refresh the mood if inspiration strikes. Have fun and fearlessly incorporate pops of colors that bring you joy.
- Strategic bold color infusions uplift neutrals without overwhelming
- Consistent color scheme integration ensures harmony
- Add color first in less permanent ways like decor items and paint
- Built-in flexibility allows easy color changes down the road
- Choose vibrant hues that spark inspiration, creativity and joy
The pattern is back with a renewed sense of freshness. Expect to see more striking geometrics, cheerful dots, and stripes worked into 2024 design schemes. Incorporate these classic prints on furniture, area rugs, walls, or decor accessories for uplifting focal points.
When repeating patterns in doses across a well-designed space, the overall effect delights rather than overwhelms the senses.
What sets patterns apart from bold colors is versatility. The same print feels at home in a range of decorated room aesthetics from modern to traditional spaces.
Play to this strength by sticking to one or two statement patterns in a single room for cohesion rather than competing prints. Find inspiring pattern mixes by limiting variables of color and scale or echo shapes elsewhere in the space. The visual interest and sense of whimsy patterns relay when balanced, perfectly suit the 2024 interior mood.
- Classic patterns like checks, dots, and stripes feel novel again
- Use patterns decisively as anchoring focal points
- Coordinate patterns successfully, limiting colors and scale variables
- Echo pattern shapes in other room details for cohesion
- Embrace the uplifting whimsy and interest of patterns in doses
Tactile Textile Layers
In 2024, interiors will reveal more personality and depth through decorative textures. Luxurious textiles like nubby boucle, cozy shearling, and textural woven blankets upgrade sofas or chairs and bring covetable texture.
Performance fabric treatments add durability to indulge freely. Mixing tactile, textural statements grounds aesthetics in the livable luxury lane.
While neutrals will continue providing an adaptable, clean backdrop, textural layers breathe visual interest and dimension into pared-back spaces.
Get creative combining mattes and shines, nubby wovens with smooth velvets, or contract durable indoor/outdoor fabrics alongside more delicate accents. Then, sculpt further interest with trims, fringing, and embellished details across accessories. Don’t be afraid to play favorites with textiles you love to live with.
- Textural fabrics in finishes from nubby to smooth upgrade livability
- Performance treatments increase durability for worry-free use
- Luscious tactile textures allow neutrals to shine
- Mix mattes with shines, indestructible with delicate
- Sculpt visual depth through textured embellished accents
Concealed Storage Solutions
Open-concept living enjoys ongoing popularity, but that doesn’t doesn’t mean every belonging must remain exposed. Cleverly concealed storage offers the best of both worlds in 2024.
Hidden cabinetry, lifting TV mounts, and Murphy desk solutions keep visual clutter out of sight while still being easily accessible.
Discover inspiration on social media for concealed coffee bars, display shelves, or wine racks that emerge cleverly from cabinetry fronts when needed.
Disguised pull-out pantries, appliance garages, charging drawers, and hidden bins offer invaluable organization without constant visual reminders of stuff accumulating. With the flexibility to stow items out of sight or creatively put frequently-used items within reach, concealed storage has wide-ranging design appeal.
- Hidden storage preserves sleek sightlines
- Innovative lifts and slides keep items accessible
- Find social media inspiration for clever reveal designs
- Out-of-sight organization reduces visible clutter
- Flexibility to conceal or make items convenient
Blended Multi-Purpose Spaces
Open-concept living spaces remain preferred for their sense of freedom and flow, but segmenting specific functional zones is equally important for 2024 design. Blending rooms without totally isolating every area strikes an ideal balance of seamless movement yet a defined purpose.
Use smart furniture placement, partial screens or walls, and strategic changes in flooring to delineate living room, dining, and kitchen areas without totally disconnecting experiences. Play with ceiling height, cove lighting, or color/finish changes to define zones while maintaining an open feel.
Keep plans flexible enough to modify layouts as family needs evolve. Achieve purpose and openness through this savvy blended space design trend.

Soothing Sanctuary Shades
As an antidote for uncertain times, darker-hued interiors in soothing deep greens, navy blues, and charcoals provide intimate sanctuary. These rich, enveloping backgrounds invite relaxation while allowing bolder textures, patterns, and metallic accents to shine.
Contrast properly positioned lighting and cabinetry color to prevent overwhelmingly dark spaces.
Repeat a single dark, dramatic color throughout a room in varying sheens, from soft matte walls to high-gloss built-ins. Or opt for a moodier color palette, blending shades of green from sage to emerald green paired with wood tones and black accents.
Design flexibility exists thanks to the many tones that are able to coordinate within a cohesive escape-evoking color scheme. Just ensure lighting keeps pace so soothing doesn’t equal somber.
- Darker colors craft intimate, relaxing environments
- Integrate strategic lighting to prevent gloominess
- Sophisticated metallic and wood accents complement the rich base
- A single dark, dramatic color repeated across varying sheens unifies
- Flexibility in coordinating schemes from a blended color family
Bold Color Immersion
While a hint of color proves uplifting, design trailblazers in 2024 will embrace full-color immersion through color drenching. This application of one vibrant color across walls, ceilings, millwork, and furnishings makes a bold sensory statement. Contrast white trims prevent overwhelm in spaces fully drenched in vibrancy.
Success lies in the color selection and room choice. For lower traffic zones like powder or laundry rooms, vivid, punchy colors feel invigorating. In main living areas, grounded deeper hues make relaxing statements. Ensure colors complement existing elements, staying or keeping surrounding rooms neutral.
Paint allows reversible flexibility but maximizes visual impact by selecting intense colors you genuinely enjoy, as passion projects risk rapid burnout through color oversaturation. Proceed with vibrant confidence but prepare contingency plans.
- Color drenching fully immerses a space in one vivid color choice
- Contrast trims prevent overwhelm
- Vibrant colors feel energizing in lower-traffic rooms
- Grounded tones make expansive living room statements
- Paint color changes provide built-in flexibility
Warm metallic finishes take a healthy share of the 2024 spotlight. Polished brass, blackened steel, and unlacquered brass fuse sophisticated moodiness with glamour and shine.
Bold metallic tiles or statement light fixtures uplift powder rooms and entryways when paired with marble, wood or concrete.
Metal finishes feel cutting edge in black nickel, champagne bronze, and oil-rubbed elements. Matching mixed metal finishes avoids chaos, so pair blackened bronze with charcoal steel or walnut wood accents.
Beyond expected roles as hardware and pendant lights, metallic finishes make intriguing statements across mirrors, built-in cabinetry panels, kitchen sinks, or freestanding sculptural furnishings. Metallics add the perfect punctuation while harmonizing beautifully with other finishes in 2024’s2024’s welcoming, livable interiors.

Lighting pushes creative boundaries in 2024 design, with artistic sculptural forms stealing focus. From organic sea-inspired wooden wave fixtures to 3D geometric laser-cut metal pendants, lighting makes literal and figural statements.
Check scale when designing impactful fixtures to match room proportions. Enormous chandeliers overwhelm modest rooms but prove perfect for two-story foyer statements. Custom creations needn’t break budgets – blackened steel pipe configured and mounted ingeniously impresses with minimal financial impact.
Consider sculptural sconces flanking beds, a customized LED installation overcoming awkwardly angled ceilings, or shapely hand-thrown ceramic table lamps bringing irresistible texture to nightstands. Make lighting a literal bright spot sculpting artistic interest.

Perfectly imperfect collected assortments allow refined Restoration Hardware-worthy elements to coexist beautifully alongside cozy flea market scores. Also, check the boxes for design individuality.
Ensure every piece relates through a coordinated color scheme and style aesthetic, whether building upon sleek mid-century foundations or vintage traditional bones. The ongoing sustainable antiquing craze clicking with customized collected interior personality predicts it will continue to rise.

A thoughtful infusion of naturally textured ceramics, touches of wood, woven accents, and collected artistry injects a cozy, organic personality without clutter.
Where rich colors lay the groundwork above, warmth weaves through neutral schemes here with wooly throws beckoning, curling up fireside atop sheepskin rugs, sharing stories over an intricately carved cocktail table.
Grounded glam interiors feel livable and levity by wearing a cashmere cable knit sweater over the party dress. Clean lines allow warmth’s adornment to feel curated and considered rather than overwhelmingly dressy. Find that sweet spot for accessible opulence through a cozy edit.
