I can’t believe we’re almost at the end of the year! As we eagerly anticipate 2024, I’m thrilled to welcome the upcoming house design trends that promise to transform our living spaces. Get ready to embrace the resurgent charm of brown, the timeless allure of wood, and the refreshing touch of green. 

The Resurgence of Brown

The Resurgence of Brown

We’ve been heading this way for the past couple of years, but now the beauty of brown is in full effect. Gone are the days of gray, as we enter a new era.  Warm, cozy, neutral spaces are making a comeback, offering a break from the cool gray tones of the past. The 2024 design trends welcome wood tones, adding a touch of nature to interiors and creating spaces that have a timeless elegance.

Design Trends-Wood Tones

More than ever, I’m seeing wood tones take center stage throughout homes in 2024. This design trend is no longer reserved for mountain or country retreats.  It has found its way into all spaces, imparting a warm and cozy feel with a lot of depth and texture. In the kitchen, the allure of wood cabinets is undeniable, offering a touch of sophistication (if your budget allows).

Personally, I’ve embraced this trend in my own kitchen remodel by mixing classic white cabinetry with a wood stained island, hutch, and floating shelves.  It adds a warmth and softness, while still being classic and timeless.  And from what I’ve seen, wood tones are transitioning from the once-popular white oak of recent years to richer wood tones.  

Beyond kitchen and bathroom cabinets, I’m also seeing a surge in wood furniture with interesting graining and details.  And if you’re looking to embark on a DIY journey, Retique It is a great option to try.  With a simple paintbrush and paint you can transform pieces in your home and embrace the timeless look of wood.  

Bold Colors

Bold Colors

After years of white on white homes dominating the design scene, 2024 is ushering in a refreshing change with bold pops of color. We’re steering away from bright neons and opting for more saturated, moody hues that add depth and drama to living spaces. It’s a significant shift from the subdued interiors of recent years, and the results are nothing short of striking. Purples, reds, blues, and dark greens are taking center stage, injecting a sense of vibrancy and personality into homes, creating spaces that not only captivate the eye but also evoke a feeling of warmth and individuality.

Design Trends-Green in Design

Speaking of green, the last design trend to watch for is green in design. Green in design encompasses more than just a color preference; it also embraces eco-friendly practices and the philosophy of biophilic design, which aims to seamlessly integrate nature into our living spaces.

Why Green is Blooming:

      • Biophilic design, at its core, is about bringing nature indoors. The 2024 trend is all about fostering a connection to nature within the living or working environment, creating a harmonious and refreshing atmosphere.
      • The use of green is experiencing a delightful surge in popularity. Home enthusiasts are incorporating this color through real or faux greenery, furniture, accents, rugs, fabrics, and pillows, bringing a touch of the outdoors inside.
      • Beyond aesthetics, green in design signifies a commitment to eco-friendly living. With an upcoming episode dedicated to eco-friendly design, the trend emphasizes the importance of considering the environmental impact of our homes.

The Green Lifestyle:

      • There’s a noticeable desire to recycle, repurpose, and reuse older furniture, merging the charm of vintage pieces with modern elements. This not only adds character to spaces, but also aligns with the growing call for sustainable living.
      • Opting to modify existing furniture rather than buying new is a trend that’s gaining momentum. This not only makes economic sense but also minimizes waste, offering a personalized and sustainable approach to interior design.
      • Join the movement by exploring thrift and consignment stores for unique, pre-loved furniture. By doing so, you contribute to the reduction of new production, making a positive impact on the environment—one stylish find at a time. Every little bit helps, right?

Whether you’re introducing touches of green, incorporating eco-friendly practices, or delving into the art of biophilic design, remember, the essence of green goes beyond aesthetics—it’s a commitment to a greener, more harmonious future. So, as you embark on your design journey, let the color green guide you towards spaces that resonate with tranquility, sustainability, and timeless style. Cheers to a greener, brighter tomorrow!
