Another year has come and gone, showing a vast mix of different styles and designs throughout 2023. What may be considered ‘trending’ has been constantly changing as of late, and keeping up with the latest fads proves easier said than done. With these round-the-clock shifts on what’s ‘in’, how is it possible to keep up and stay stylish in your home? How can we determine what will be popular in the coming year, and how do we stay up to date without completely reworking what’s already in place? That’s exactly what this blog is for: we’ll be discussing three broader trends that are making their way into 2024, and how you can incorporate each of them into your current home aesthetic without breaking the bank. Now, let’s see what’s in store for the coming year!


Trend 1: Natural Materials

In a society that’s surrounded by technology and urban city conditions, the desire to reconnect with nature has never been greater. The simplicity, durability, and longevity of natural materials has become a priority in interior design, with an emphasis on purchasing pieces that will stand the test of time. Some of the more common natural elements found in home design include wood, stone, and leather.



A staple element, wood is a material that can be found almost everywhere: flooring, paneling, furniture, décor, and more. It is structurally sound, naturally strong, and lightweight; this is mainly why it’s been a popular furnishing material for hundreds of years. Along with this, there are many different types of wood (e.g., oak, pine, sheesham, etc.), allowing for a range in styles and aesthetics.



Similar to wood, stone is a material that can be found and used just about anywhere. It’s another significantly strong element, and highly resistant to being scratched, burned, or stained. Stone is mainly used for table or counter tops, flooring, and décor pieces. Also like wood, there are multiple types (e.g., marble, slate, sintered stone, etc.) to find that perfect fit for your home.



If you’re looking for a low maintenance, long-lasting upholstery material, leather is the way to go. It's estimated to last up to four times longer than any other type of upholstery, perfect for a long-time purchase. Leather is flexible yet tough and naturally resistant to tears. Its easy-clean surface is something that most family homes will love. If you’d still like the leather look without the leather price tag, faux leather has the same qualities with different materials (i.e., a plastic base treated with wax).


Again, natural materials are desired for their simple yet durable style. To learn more about natural materials and how they can fit into your current home design, click here.


Trend 2: Style Revivals

As we’ve seen, trends are constantly changing - but these shifts are not always linear. Many times over, previous styles have resurfaced with a new twist. This gives an opportunity to repurpose for environmental benefits, and lets the current trendsetters add a unique touch to a former style staple. Below are three styles that will been seen throughout 2024.



This is the concept of having fewer, but carefully selected possessions that embody a sense of calm and clarity. With a lesser number of things, this style calls for pieces that fill both functional and design needs. Every piece has a place and a purpose.



This style focuses on simplicity, with an emphasis on function and beauty. Scandinavian style is minimal by nature, but has a warmer and cozier feel in the home. With a neutral base and small pops of color, this style relates to many of the cottage and rustic type designs. To learn more about Scandinavian style, click here.



Classic style is mainly focused on the overall value and wealth of materials, detailed finishes, and decorations. The emphasis is on the construction and design of pieces, the articulate attention to detail.


Although these styles have been seen for decades, this new year brings a brand-new twist on how each of these will look.


Trend 3: Geometry and Color Coordination

Coordinating shapes and colors has always been a focus of interior design, but 2024 will be pushing the limits to the extreme. Visual interest and personal storytelling embedded in one’s home aesthetic is a priority for the upcoming year, and the relationship between colors and shapes will be redefined. From simple décor additions to room remodels, this emphasis on visual appeal and scenic eccentricity will be seen in all aspects of home design.
