I cannot believe I’m typing these words…but it’s 2024! With the post-Christmas clean-up blues setting in, I started to think to myself about the year ahead. More specifically, I wondered what 2024 home trends will look like. I always get excited thinking about the new ways people style their homes and wanted to share with you some home trends I’m forecasting in 2024!

Home Décor

In 2024, I think we will start seeing a turn towards more neutrals. I expect people to utilize different materials to show depth in their space such as plush fabrics and lots of texture. I believe the minimalist, “less is more” approach will ring true all year long. But, I believe we’ll notice a more intentional shift in the variety and diversity of the textured materials.

Furnishings | Mixing in Darker Materials and Fabrics

I love light, bright, and airy coastal decor as much as the next person. But, I do see the value in blending in darker colors, woods, and materials to create a more cozy, inviting space. In 2024, I expect there will be a shift to darker wood tones to mix with the lighter pieces we see in coastal decor. Homeowners will look to invest in furnishings and finishes that will stand the test of time. Performance fabrics that will hold up to children and pets. As a result, we may see more solid wood flooring instead of LVP.

Home Layouts and Floor Plans | A Move Away from Wide-Open Spaces

We’ve been seeing this in recent new home layouts and floorplans, but buyers are moving away from the big open room concept and are looking for some separation of space. This helps to create that cozy, comfortable coastal vibe that makes your home feel like a true sanctuary.

Walls, Ceilings, and Trim

In 2024, we will see a lot of rich, earthy tones. There will be a trend to paint entire rooms the same color… ceiling, trim and walls.  People are moving away from grays as well as all-white walls, ceilings, and trim.

We will also continue to see lots of wallpaper and wall molding!  I love adding wallpaper to bathrooms and bedrooms as it can show your personality. Adding the vertical shiplap in our primary bedroom was such a great decision. It adds some dimension without overtaking the space.

As we lead into 2024, I cannot wait to see what home trends unfold. I am looking forward to another year of perfecting my style, purchasing intentional pieces, and continuing to create a space where my family and friends can spend time together. Cheers to 2024!
