What are the Latest Design Trends?

With a new year comes fresh home design trends. Here’s what we’re loving for 2024:


Squares are so, well, square. In 2024, rounded edges and curves are back in a big way. These curvy lines can be used in sectional sofas, dining tables, and even coffee tables. Soft edges promote a soft, calm energy that makes for a welcoming space whether it’s your living room, den, or bedroom.

Mixed Metals

Design experts tell us that mixed metals will be a hit in bathrooms and beyond in 2024. There are many opportunities to use a mixed metal light fixture to harmoniously combine brass and black or bronze or brass and nickel.

We love the idea of combining the aesthetics of mixed metal with a paint hue like Ironside from Dutch Boy Paints or Cyberspace from Sherwin Williams.

Window seats

Who doesn’t love the idea of a cozy nook, a cup of coffee, and a book? All that is missing from spending your Sunday morning in peace is the perfect window seat! It’s more than just great for aesthetics, though. Window seats are a really useful space-saving trick in small kitchens or under awkward bay windows, where you can combine handy extra seating with concealed storage.

Spa-Like Bathrooms

When creating your perfect place of peace, your sanctuary after a long day, you’re going to want to focus on the bathroom. This is why, according to multiple designers, creating a bathroom oasis will be a top priority for both new build constructions and renovations.

Enhanced bathrooms that mimic the amenities of a spa are going to be on the rise, making a big splash in 2024. The “spathroom,” or spa-inspired bathroom, has been influenced by the growing popularity of self-care spaces. In order to achieve it, look to incorporate steam showers, infrared saunas, and cold plunges into your bathroom. All of these features are becoming more affordable and accessible. Don’t forget the gentle spa-like lighting too, like backlit mirrors and integrated ceiling lighting.

To create the perfect spa, you’re going to want a calming hue on the walls. We love the idea of Minwax’s Bay Blue in your new place of tranquility.

What are the New Colors in Home Decor?

Speaking of colors, there are some gorgeous new hues on tap for 2024. Whether you’re choosing your colors for living room paint for the first time in a brand new home or seeking a refresh to make your old living room new again, the decision of your paint color is an important one! 

If you’re ready to embrace a moodier, edgier color palette in your home, Behr Paint Company’s color of the year, Cracked Pepper, is a stunning option. Greens and earthy hues have shown to be soothing, especially in the bedroom. If you’re looking to create your own personal oasis, look no further than Sherwin Williams Oakmoss. Want your home to be a bright spot after a long day? Opt for Sherwin-Williams Upward.


Productive Spaces

Having an office that feels cozy and allows for productivity is an ongoing home trend, and now homework rooms are a welcomed addition to the interior design trends. Bright walls, natural light, an interactive smart board, affirmations, and even a small fridge, can make homework seem way less daunting and give the child or children an opportunity to showcase their version of design home trends. Speaking of office and schoolwork, the home decor trend of having an office space where you can work out or a bedroom with a couch for reading or work has become more popular. Gone are the days of homes with too much room. The new home decor idea is to make the most of all that you have. 


How do You Update Home Decor with New Styles?

Lighting, painting, new cabinetry, changing the floors, or even switching out bedding and window treatments are good ways to add interior design trends or update a space. Pictures, candles, candleholders, and light fixtures will also add to the new home decor plan you may have in mind. 


Make 2024 the Year You Absolutely Adore Your Home

It’s clear to see that this year brings a harmonious blend of innovation, comfort, and personal expression to our living spaces. From cozy window seats to spa-like bathrooms, the trends of 2024 invite us to reimagine our homes as more than just four walls and a roof.
