As we approach the year 2024, the world of interior design is already preparing to welcome new and exciting trends. Sustainability and eco-friendliness are at the heart of these trends, with a shift towards materials that are not only attractive but also respect our environment. Let's delve into what 2024 has in store for us.
Sustainable Materials Steal the Show
Already visible, the leaning towards eco-friendly and sustainable materials is set to continue in 2024. Top of the list is cork, a natural substance derived from the bark of the cork oak tree. The versatile nature of cork sees it being increasingly used in floor coverings and decorative accessories.
Next up is tweed, a longtime favorite making a triumphant return. This material, often used in furniture upholstery, imbues any room with a sense of warmth and elegance.
Not to be overlooked is corduroy. This material's textured look and feel continue to captivate, adding a comforting touch to any interior space.
Last but not least, wallpaper is back with a bang. Expect to see bold patterns and vibrant colors adorning the walls of stylish homes in the coming year.
Farewell to Out-of-Fashion Materials
Just as some materials are gaining popularity, others are set to take a backseat in 2024. Among these are curly wool, leather, raffia, and silk. Notably, raffia is expected to be replaced by eco-friendlier options like jute or hemp.
New Decoration Trends for 2024
In addition to materials, the year 2024 also promises a host of fresh decoration trends. Leading the charge is aluminum, which is making a surprising comeback. Look out for this versatile metal in furniture, lighting, and wall coverings, where it replaces its counterparts, brass and chrome.
For those looking to add an exotic touch to their interior, zebra patterns are the way to go. Secondly, the rounded shapes and seventies style continue to persist, adding a retro feel to modern spaces.
In terms of color, metallic blue is set to be the shade of the year, closely followed by the mesmerizing jellyfish style, both predicted to be significant trends by Pinterest Predicts.
