2024 Interior Design Trends That Are Making Waves

Eager to revamp and refresh your home in 2024? If so, then it may be time to brush up on some of the latest interior design and home decor trends.

From bold, eye-catching accents to sleek and stylish furniture choices, we're seeing quite a few trends shake up modern interior design. 

1. Statement Artwork

Never underestimate the power of a great piece of wall art when decorating your home. In 2024, we're beginning to see the use of statement wall art pieces and decor as a means of creating focal points while highlighting color schemes.

If you have a multi-story space in your home (such as an open-concept living room with high ceilings), then a large piece of wall art can be a great way to fill space while drawing the eye upwards. Even if you don't have a multi-story living space, you might consider replacing an existing gallery wall with one or two statement pieces of wall art. Playing with the scale and proportion of your art pieces will create a statement!

2. Bold Area Rugs

Eye-catching area rugs with bold designs are also in for 2024, giving you an opportunity to display a work of art not just on your wall, but as a floor covering. Adding a bold area rug to a larger space in your home (such as an open living room) is an effective way to better define gathering/seating areas while incorporating your own unique sense of style in the process. Plus, area rugs can serve the practical purpose of giving your home a cozier feel and simultaneously protecting your flooring from damage.

Not sure where to begin with choosing an area rug for your space? Start with the size. As a general rule, it's best to maintain roughly 18 inches of visible floor space surrounding an area rug. However, make sure to factor in the overall dimensions and layout of the room. The 18-inch guideline works for enclosed rooms with distinct boundaries. Smaller spaces, on the other hand, might benefit from more exposed floors.

Remember, if you go for a smaller rug, you can inadvertently make the room look smaller and disrupt the visual harmony of surrounding furnishings. With area rugs, you can go big.

Next, consider the color scheme; from there, you can select a rug that complements the color scheme or contrasts it for an eye-catching look.

You can also get creative with unique patterns, such as this popular Hagen Slate/Denim Area Rug that's sure to turn heads.

3. Curvilinear Furniture

Curvilinear furniture has been a dominating trend for the past couple of seasons, and it continues to remain a strong theme for 2024. There is something about the softness of curvy elements in a space that draws you in.  This includes not just sofas and sectionals, but coffee tables and just about every other furniture piece you can imagine. 

The addition of uniquely shaped furniture pieces in your space can help you achieve a more modern interior design without sacrificing functionality in the process. You can embrace this trend fully by incorporating lots of curvilinear designs—or choose to be a little more subtle with a combination of linear and curvy furniture for contrast. Either way, you'll be creating a look that's unique and on-trend.

4. Dark Woods and Metals

When it comes to home interior design, 2024 also seems to be the year of dark woods over lighter shades—and the incorporation of more metals into furniture and decor. When paired together, these materials can add an unexpected air of elegance to any space. Plus, shiny surfaces like metal tend to reflect light, which can make smaller spaces feel roomier and more open.

In the past, decorating with metals and wood might have automatically conjured up images of industrial design. However, with the right design choices (like picking matted metals over shinier ones), you can achieve a warm and inviting look with these materials in any space of your home.

Consider, for instance, the impact of this block-shaped cocktail table and this metal and wood low-side table in the same room.

5. Unique Lighting Choices

We anticipate that 2024 will also be the year of unique, sculptural lighting in home interior design. By choosing the right lighting fixture, you can add an artistic touch to your space without sacrificing practicality in the process. From pendants and floor lamps to statement chandeliers and table lamps, there are plenty of ways to get creative with your home's lighting.
