My 2024 Home Decor and Design Trend Predictions

January 3, 2024

As we turn the page to 2024, I’m sharing my predictions for the top home decor trends and interior design styles we should expect to see more and more of. These themes will spill into all facets of home, from decorating inspiration to kitchen and bathroom designs.

Based on what I’ve observed coming out of the 2024 fashion previews, as well as simply paying attention to common themes I’m noticing across social media, I feel confident sharing these predictions for the coming year. And let me just say, I’m not mad about any of them! In fact, I feel this just might be my year, as many of these truly resonate with my own style. Without further ado, lets get to it!

Prediction #1: Color

When I say color, I mean COLOR. Get ready for bold and rich hues of blues, reds, greens and yellows. Green made a big splash last year, and I think we’ll continue to see it stick around, but get ready to see more reds. Specifically, I’ve been noticing an earthy, brown hue of red popping up more and more. It’s a bold choice, but when done correctly it’s high impact.

Prediction #2: The return of Chrome & Nickel

Brass fixtures have been reigning supreme over the past several years, and while brass certainly isn’t going anywhere, you should expect to see more and more silver tones coming into the fold this season. We’re seeing this in fashion and I think it’s time for the cycle of home finishes to start to slightly shift. Expect to see more and more mixed metals as part of many interior designs.

Prediction #3: EXTRA!

The days of minimalism and white boxes for rooms is gone. Get ready to swing hard in the other direction with a new trend of maximalism. Think layered textures, bold colors and a truly collected space.

Prediction #4: High Gloss

We’re seeing the return of patent leather in fashion and I expect to see this trend translate into home design through high gloss finishes. This could be with high gloss paint or even more mirrored backsplashes. Expect to see some shine in 2024!

Prediction #5: Pattern

Pattern has made its way back into the fold via the comeback of wallpaper of the past few years (more on that below) but expect to see more and more of it. Patterned drapes and even pattern coming back on furniture. I anticipate seeing pattern on pattern as well, whether a patterned sofa in a wallpapered room or a juxtaposition of geometric prints against floral designs. While this could leave some of us that lived through the late 80’s and 90’s a little shook, I encourage you to get excited. I think there is a tasteful way to do this and I’m excited to see how this trend emerges with a new spin!

Prediction #6: Wallpaper to the max!

Spilling off the theme of pattern, wallpaper is here to stay. We’ve seen it making a slow comeback over the past few years leading as a solution to add texture into rooms and then finally incorporating pattern. Get ready to see it make a big splash this year, and watch people get bolder with it. I’ve been seeing more and more wallpaper on the ceilings and its been quite fun.

Prediction #7: More natural woodwork

This past year we started to see the return of wood cabinetry and I expect that trend to continue into 2024. Along the overall theme of rich colors, I think we’ll start to see some rich and warm wood tones come back into the fold via cabinetry, furniture and even trim.

Prediction #8: Secondhand + upcycling

This should come as no surprise but expect to see more and more people embracing giving new life to old items. Whether sourced through Facebook marketplace, estate sales or thrift stores, the trend to shop used vs buy new is here to stay.

Prediction #9: Less Trends

How exciting is this one? I hope I’m right about this. I think we’ll start to see more of an “anything goes” mentality to design, as long as it’s in good taste.

Prediction #10: The re-invention of Traditional

I’ve seen more and more traditional design over the past year and I believe that is here to stay, but with a little twist. Expect to see a reimagination of traditional design this year, and unique spins on what tradition means to each person.

In Conclusion: 2024 Home Decor and Design Trend Predictions

While these are my personal predictions for the year, I truly hope I’m right about all of them! I am ready to see more styling, textures, colors and pattern across interior design, and truly believe a home is collected not decorated. Your home is a representation of you, and I don’t know anyone who is a plain white box.

What do you think about these design predictions? Is there anything you would add? Take away? What are you most excited about?
