Whether you’re planning a gut renovation or simply looking to complete a budget-friendly home refresh, this list of 2024’s biggest home trends is sure to help!
Peach & Apricot Colors
- Described as “radiant with warmth and modern elegance”, Pantone’s color of the 2024 “Peach Fuzz” will be popping up in all sorts of different home spaces. Peach and apricot colors can easily be paired with neutrals and naturals, but also looks excellent with greens, purples and blues for a vibrant contrast. Start small with throw blankets, pillows, rugs, etc. or bump it up a notch and paint an accent wall in peach or apricot.
Wallpaper in Unexpected Places
- Wallpaper has definitely made a comeback! Bring a little fun and surprise to your space by placing wallpaper in unexpected places like coat closets, linen closets, small bars, and half baths. Give your small spaces a little glow up because every space in a home should feel special, even if you don’t see them everyday.
- Fluted elements like below bring a distinctive texture and visual interest to your surfaces and finishes. It’s extremely versatile across different design types and adds a certain sophistication that makes the space feel considered.
- Metals can amplify whatever vibe a room is already giving. Bright aluminums and silver are going to make a splash this year after years of gold and black dominating metal hardware and accessories. Adding metals to your home doesn’t always have to be in hardware or accessories though. Try using them in your furniture pieces or light fixtures.
- This year, we’ll see more and more people wanting to expose their original wood millwork. Opt for rich woods like walnut, maple, and mahogany over paint-grade millwork.
- Unspool your ribbons! Romanticism isn’t just for the 19th century (or the 1980s!). It’s a carefree style that exudes confidence, pinks, reds, florals, lace, and ribbons which can make a space feel sensual and provocative. Try this trend out with floral pillows, botanical textiles, and jewel tones.
- I don’t think vintage furniture will ever go out of style. Although investment pieces like vintage furniture may take a toll on the wallet, the quality and longevity you’ll get out of them will far surpass big box store “fast” furniture.
Intimate Dining Areas
- “In the past decade, there has been a noticeable shift in preferences—many now favor separating the kitchen from the dining room, moving away from the once-popular open concept. This change reflects a growing inclination, reminiscent of today’s popular period dramas, to create more intimate dining experiences for gatherings with family and friends. This often involves blocking direct access to the busy kitchen, immersing guests in beautifully designed dining rooms.” — Rayman Boozer, Apartment 48
- The idea of quiet luxury is to use innovation and timeless elegance to transfer a space that inspires and elevates everyday living. Sustainable materials, discreetly integrated smart technology and a revival of classic design elements evokes nostalgia while embracing the modern era.
- We’ll see a lot more statement tiles this year, especially in showers. By using a statement or accent tile, you’ll break up any monotony in these mostly plain spaces.
That’s all for now – I hope you all had a wonderful month!
