It’s a new year so it’s time to predict the interior design trends for 2024. Whilst design is cyclical and the core interior design trends are timeless in so many ways, this year we’re expecting to see a focus on contemporary elegance combined with sustainable practices.

Over the coming weeks the Wylde blogs will explore some of the predicted themes and trends we’re expecting to see over the year ahead. We’re always taking note of what’s in and whats out, but love the feeling of a new year – ready to embrace fresh ideas and innovative concepts. In 2024, we anticipate a shift towards a harmonious blend of contemporary aesthetics, sustainable practices, and a touch of timeless elegance.

We’re starting with ‘sustainable chic’ – environmental consciousness continues to influence design choices, and thankfully, this year is no exception. We’re expecting to see a surge in sustainable and eco-friendly materials, such as reclaimed wood, recycled metals, and organic fabrics. From furniture to decor, designers are leaning towards pieces that not only look good but also contribute to a greener planet.

The trend we’re are always championing here at Wylde is the beautiful biophilia! Connecting with nature in interior spaces is a trend that’s here to stay. Biophilic design, which integrates natural elements into indoor spaces, is set to thrive this year – Think large windows allowing ample natural light, indoor plants creating lush greenery, and earthy tones or natural materials that evoke a sense of calm and tranquility.

One of the trends we’re expecting to see this year is ‘Modern Vintage’ – the nostalgia for the past meets contemporary sophistication. Combining classic design elements with sleek, modern finishes, this style adds character to any space. Think mid-century furniture paired with bold, vibrant colours or antique accessories blended seamlessly with minimalist surroundings. Excited to see what this one brings!

A perhaps obvious one, is the continuing trend of tech-integrated spaces: as technology continues to advance, our spaces are becoming smarter and more integrated. This year, we anticipate a surge in tech-savvy interiors, with automation systems seamlessly integrated into the design be it at home or in the workplace.

There seems to be a welcome push back to artisanal craftsmanship. In a world dominated by mass production, the appreciation for artisanal craftsmanship is making a welcome comeback. Handcrafted furniture, bespoke textiles, and unique decor pieces are gaining popularity. Interior designers are seeking one-of-a-kind items that showcase the skill and artistry of talented craftspeople stepping away from the pieces that everyone else has!

And our final prediction for this years interior design is using moody hues! While neutral tones have dominated interior palettes in recent years, 2024 is set to introduce a more dramatic and moody aesthetic. Rich, deep hues like forest green, navy blue, and burgundy are expected to make a statement, adding a sense of luxury and opulence to living spaces. We can’t wait to see it!

As we embark on a new year, the interior design landscape is poised for a transformation that combines sustainability, technology, and a timeless aesthetic. Whether you’re a design enthusiast or planning a home makeover, these trends offer a glimpse into the exciting possibilities that await in 2024.
