Intentional Design

Looking ahead to the rest of 2024, the world of interior design is expected to continue to evolve and adapt to new trends, technologies, and societal changes. Here are some anticipated trends and styles that are expected to shape the design landscape.

Sustainable & Eco-Friendly Design

With a growing focus on environmental sustainability and the impact of climate change, we anticipate a continued emphasis on eco-friendly design practices in 2024. From using sustainable materials and incorporating energy-efficient appliances to maximizing natural light and incorporating green elements like indoor plants, the push towards sustainability will continue to drive design choices.

Biophilic Design

In 2024, biophilic design is expected to become even more popular as people prioritize sustainability. This design approach incorporates nature and natural elements into interior spaces, which look beautiful and have proven benefits for mental health and well-being. For instance, a living wall with lush greenery and a water feature can provide a sense of calm and tranquility in a busy office environment. Similarly, a bedroom with large windows and natural wooden furnishings can create a cozy, inviting space that promotes restful sleep.

Connected Spaces

Minimalism with a Twist

Minimalism has been a popular trend in interior design for quite some time now. 2024, we expect this trend to evolve into a more personalized and curated approach. Although clean lines and simplicity will still be essential for people who love these spaces, we anticipate a shift towards incorporating more statement pieces, unique textures, and pops of color to add character and warmth to minimalist spaces.

Intelligent and Connected Homes

With technological advancements, incorporating smart home features into interior design will become more effortless and intuitive by 2024. The connected home will provide convenience, comfort, and control over living spaces from your smartphone through integration with home automation systems (Crestron & Savant still take the lead).

Color Blocking

Bold Colors & Mixed Patterns

The industry is set to become more adventurous in 2024, departing from the popular neutral color palettes with increased bold jewel tones, vibrant hues, and mixed patterns. This trend reflects a desire for self-expression and individuality in design, encouraging people to break free from traditional norms and create spaces that reflect their personalities and preferences.

Flexible & Multi-Functional Spaces

As the way we live and work evolves, flexible and multi-functional spaces will become increasingly crucial in interior design in 2024. With many people now working from home and seeking versatile living arrangements, designers will focus on creating spaces that can quickly adapt to various needs, whether a home office transforms into a guest bedroom or a dining area that can double as a workspace.

Personal Spaces

Cultural Influences & Global Design

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, we predict interior design trends in 2024 will be heavily influenced by global diversity and cultural traditions. Designers will incorporate elements from various cultures, celebrate artisanal craftsmanship, and embrace handmade goods to create a rich and diverse design landscape. The result will be a beautiful tapestry celebrating influences from around the world.

Texture Play & Layering

In 2024, interior design is expected to focus more on texture play and layering, adding depth and visual interest to spaces. Mixing different materials such as wood, metal, and stone to create unique textures will be standard. Additionally, designers will employ layering of textiles and upholstery with different tactile qualities, resulting in inviting and sensory environments.

Personalized & Meaningful Design

The trend towards personalized and meaningful design is set to continue in 2024. The focus is on reflecting the individuality and stories of the people who live in a space. This can be achieved through showcasing treasured heirlooms, incorporating art pieces with sentimental value, or creating spaces that evoke specific memories and emotions. The ultimate goal is to design interiors that genuinely resonate with the human experience.
