Today, we're excited to be bringing you a curated list of the hottest interior design trends and styles for 2024, helping you stay ahead of the curve and create spaces that are not only stylish but also timeless.


The Cosy Window Seat

This cosy nook is perfect for reading, lounging, or simply enjoying the view. Integrating a window seat into your living room or bedroom adds both functionality and charm. It creates an intimate space that invites relaxation and reflection, making it a practical yet stylish addition to any home. House Beautiful agrees!


Vintage Lighting

Lighting is a crucial element in interior design, and vintage lighting fixtures are set to shine in 2024. From ornate chandeliers to retro sconces, these pieces add a touch of elegance and history to modern spaces. The warm soft glow of vintage bulbs, combined with modern decor adds a classic and timeless feel to your space.


Vintage lighting not only provides warm, ambient light but also serves as a statement piece that can transform the mood of a room. The resurgence of mid-century modern and Art Deco lighting styles is because of their ability to blend seamlessly with contemporary decor.


Bespoke and Beautiful

Supporting local artisans, makers and designers by incorporating their creations into home decor is a trend gaining momentum in 2024. Locally made furniture, textiles, and decor items add a unique and authentic touch to interiors. This movement not only promotes sustainability but also celebrates the rich cultural heritage of local communities.

As Elle Decor says, "Artisanal Everything Is In" and Vogue and House Beautiful agrees when they both published predictions for one-of-a-kind pieces or statement pieces to be a booming trend this year! We are very lucky to be based in London, where there are numerous designers and makers. We promise to dedicate a whole blog post to them, the makers of our local community and find out more about what they do and why.


A Mix of Textural Variety

Mixing textures is an exciting trend that adds depth and interest to any room. Combining textured materials like suede, wool, velvet, leather, wood, marble and metals, particularly Chrome this year, will create a dynamic and layered look. Obviously the combining of these textures is a process, one that requires styling and planning. This approach is all about contrast—pairing smooth surfaces with rough, shiny with matte, and soft with hard. This trend is perfect for those who love to experiment and push the boundaries of traditional design. Vogue, Elle Decor and Cosmopolitan agree.



Textured Finishes

Textured finishes are a fantastic way to add character to your home. From textured wallpapers to plaster finishes and tactile fabrics, these elements create visual interest and depth. Offering an opportunity to create a unique aesthetic and feel to your space. We particularly love bricked kitchen island bases and soft concrete finished walls. Textured finishes are particularly effective in neutral colour schemes, where they add dimension without overpowering the space. Elle Decor predicts, "Alternative materials Will be the Standard": House Beautiful, Elle Decor, Cosmoplitan, Architectural Digest, and Vogue all agree!


Boucle Boucle, Never go Away

Boucle, the cosy and textured fabric, continues to be a favourite in 2024, but with modern updates. This year, expect to see boucle in bold colours and unexpected furniture pieces. Its soft, looped texture adds a luxurious feel to sofas, chairs, and cushions. Boucle's versatility and comfort make it a lasting trend that adapts well to contemporary style. House Beautiful titled their prediction, "New Ways with Boucle", Elle Decor matched that with, "Boucle is here to stay, but with fresh updates".



L-Shaped and Chaise Sofas

We all love a comfortable and cosy sofa. Comfort meets style with L-shaped and chaise sofas, which are becoming a staple in living rooms this year. These sofas provide ample seating while enhancing the room's flow and functionality; their versatility and ability to define a space without overwhelming it make them ideal for both large and small spaces. They create a cosy corner for family gatherings or lounging. We love this beautiful and innovative piece of furniture and so does House Beautiful.


Bridging the Gaps in Time: Victorian and Classic meets our Modern Homes

KCJ Builders have prided ourselves in our ability to Preserve the Old for the New Generation. Coming from our home, Kentish Town, which is rich in Victorian architecture and classic features, we love this trend the most! "The Heritage Revival" as The English Home calls it, and agreed by Elle Decor as they predict "Victorian Era Details Will Have a Revival: , or "Now & Then: Mixing and Matching Historical Eras" according to Architectural Digest, and agreed by House Beautiful and Cosmopolitan, this is definitely a major trend in 2024! Mixing historical eras is a trend that brings a sense of timelessness and sophistication to interiors. This year, Victorian era details are making a comeback, blending with modern elements to create a unique and timeless composition. Think ornate mouldings paired with minimalist furniture or antique accessories mixed with contemporary art. This trend allows for a rich, layered look that feels curated and personal.


Warming Colours

Warm colours are set to dominate the colour palette in 2024. Shades of terracotta, mustard, and rich browns bring a sense of cosiness and comfort to interiors. These colours work well in living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens, creating an inviting and homey feel. The English Home agrees.


Another prime example of a trending warming colour is The Pantone Colour of the Year 2024, Peach Fuzz, which brings a fresh and vibrant touch to home decor. This soft, warm hue is reminiscent of ripe peaches and apricots, evoking feelings of warmth and happiness. Incorporating this colour into your interiors can brighten up spaces and create a welcoming atmosphere. Architectural Digest suggests using Peach Fuzz in accent walls, cushions, and decor items to add a pop of colour without overwhelming the room.


Dark Wood Panelled Walls, Warm Wood and Earthy Tones

Natural materials and earth tones continue to be popular in 2024. Warm woods like oak and walnut add a touch of nature and sophistication to interiors. These materials are versatile and timeless, blending seamlessly with various design styles. Incorporating natural elements can create a calming and grounding atmosphere in your home. Dark wood-panelled walls are making a comeback, bringing a sense of luxury and tradition to interiors. These walls add depth and richness, making a strong statement in living rooms, studies, and dining areas. Dark wood panels create a cozy and dramatic backdrop that enhances other decor elements.

Lots of Green

Green is a colour that symbolises renewal and growth, and it’s becoming a favourite in interior design for 2024. From deep emeralds to soft sages, green hues can bring a touch of nature indoors. This colour is versatile and can be used in various ways, from wall paint to furniture and decor accents. Cosmpolitan agrees!


Yellows

Yellow, with its cheerful and uplifting qualities, is another colour trend for 2024. Whether it’s a bold mustard or a soft pastel, yellow can brighten up any space and add a sense of optimism. Yellow works well in kitchens, living rooms, and even bedrooms, where it can create a sunny and welcoming atmosphere. You can decide if you prefer to paint your walls in a soft yellow, or have it in a bright, vibrant shade on a feature wall. Our favourite is when a feature wall is paired with yellow accents and soft furnishings. Vogue agrees!


Oversized Lighting

Oversized lighting fixtures are set to be a major trend in 2024. These statement pieces can transform a room, providing both illumination and a focal point. From large pendants to grand chandeliers, oversized lighting adds drama and elegance to interiors. These fixtures are particularly effective in making a bold statement in dining rooms and entryways.


Stripes

Stripes, especially candy cane stripes, are making a bold statement in interior design this year. These playful patterns can be used in various ways, from wallpaper to upholstery. Remember, stripes are not only for the kids this year, as more internationally renowned interior designers and stylists have featured them in more communal areas of the home such as living rooms and hallways. Adding a dynamic and energetic feel to any room, making them a great choice for accent walls and statement furniture. Vogue agrees!

Pop Art Inspired Florals

Pop art-inspired florals bring a vibrant and modern twist to traditional floral patterns. These bold and colourful designs can add a fun and artistic touch to your home. This is an expressive and playful way to add colour and joy to your space. You decide if you will add hints of pop art florals in small doses, such as throw pillows or art pieces, to create a lively and contemporary look without overwhelming the space; or if you are a proud and loud maximalist. The possibilities are endless and House Beautiful agrees!
