Many people commit to reshaping their bodies when the new year arrives, but it’s also a fantastic time to make over the interior of your Chicago home. Our experts have tracked down the top interior design trends for 2024, and we’re sharing them with you.
Bring On The Brown
In 2024, gray’s popularity will wane while brown rises to its rightful place in the color pantheon. Trend forecasters predict dark browns, like Benjamin Moore Chocolate Pudding 1014, will be the primary color of earthy palettes that include lighter shades, like Benjamin Moore Lingerie AF-200. If brown is a bit blah for you, take comfort in knowing that rich terracotta and deep oranges are also an upcoming design trend for 2024.
Sustainability Steps Up
Biophilic design maintains its high-style status as more trendsetters embrace sustainability as an aesthetic and a way of life. This trend includes using natural materials, lots of texture, and organic shapes. Fast furniture will go by the wayside as people embrace artisanal pieces made to last, and limewashed or matte walls will replace the standard semi-gloss look. Look for curved and organic elements like sectionals and coffee tables to bring calm, welcoming energy to a room.
Have you been wondering how to bring some excitement to the walls of your staircase? If you want an on-trend home, consider adding a mural to the space. It’s an unexpected place for art and adds a lot of depth and visual interest to an otherwise humdrum spot. Don’t be afraid to add bold artwork and sculptures to your home. The colors and shapes will contrast the curves and earthy hues found elsewhere in your space.
Window Treatment Trends for 2024
Unsurprisingly, sheer shades will maintain their status as one of the top window treatments in 2024. The UV protection and gentle light diffusion of sheers and shadings are unmatched by other shades. We also look forward to seeing bold prints and patterns on Roman shades and roller shades that will pop nicely against an earthy color palette. Metallic accents will also be on the scene, blending well with the mixed metals trend in other décor.
Welcoming Living Rooms
Interior designers predict that minimalist living rooms with gray and white as their primary colors will be a thing of the past. The look will still have a minimalist feel but with warmer, textural elements and moodier palettes focusing on browns, creams, and muted greens—think an updated mid-century feel with modern elements. Bouclé will remain at the forefront of interior design but in bolder colors.
