With the new year well and truly upon us, it’s becoming clear that there are some interior design trends that are here to elevate your space.
From colour to curves let’s explore the hottest 4 interior trends that are set to dominate 2024 and how you can feature them in your home.
Curves and Organic Shapes
The last few years have seen curves take the furniture and décor world by storm and this doesn’t look to change in 2024.
However, this year will see a new iteration of them in architecture in the form of arched hallways, shower entries and built in shelves.
Curved furniture works well in any space as the shape fits well into a host of spaces.
Organic shapes are also super popular as they provide a focal point to a room and can be used in lighting, homewares, mirrors or artwork.
The use of timber has always been popular in interiors as it brings a certain warmth to a space.
Over the past few years, paler coloured timbers have been a common finish for most furniture, however this year will see the return of dark timber.
If your home features lighter coloured floors, dark timber furniture is ideal for creating contrast, depth, and sophistication to a space.
Picture sweet and tangy gelato in a peach or apricot flavour and you have this year’s colour trend.
At the end of last year, Pantone declared Peach Fuzz as the colour of 2024 and there’s no shortage of this vibrant colour in modern home interiors.
This warm hue works well with neutrals and is especially suited to cushions, textiles, vases, or ceramics.
Engineered Stone Alternatives
Over the past few years there has been a move to ban engineered stone due to the increased risk of Silicosis.
In Australia, from the 1st July 2024 there will be a phased out approach to prohibit the use of engineered stone for kitchen and bathroom benchtops and other joinery.
So, what materials can we expect to see as alternatives?
Porcelain bench tops have increased in popularity due to their durability in indoor and outdoor settings. As have timber and concrete materials.
Natural stone is still a popular choice for creating an organic look, however due to its nature, it’s prone to being porous, meaning it requires more maintenance over time.
If stone is you favoured choice, varieties such as granite or quartzite are a better option as they offer a marble like finish whilst still being a hard-wearing surface.
