Brunswick West, VIC.
The ever-evolving world of interior design never fails to surprise and inspire. As we step into 2024 a blend of nostalgic hues, dynamic colour schemes, rustic textures, evolving shapes, sustainability and bold colours promise to redefine our living spaces.
Let's dive into these trends and explore how to incorporate them in your home without breaking the bank.
Peach Fuzz: A Heartfelt Hue
Pantone's colour of the year for 2024, Peach Fuzz (PANTONE 13-1023) embodies a sense of warmth, comfort and connection.
According to the team from Pantone, “introducing soft and cosy PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz into home interiors creates a welcoming ambiance. Promoting feelings of gentle warmth whether appearing on a painted wall, in home décor or acting as an accent within a pattern, PANTONE 13-1023 Peach Fuzz infuses our most personalised worlds with a comforting presence.”
To introduce this colour into your home affordably, consider accent walls or small décor elements like cushions, throws, or artwork. Op shops or DIY projects can offer budget-friendly options to infuse this comforting shade into your home.
Layered Colour Schemes: Mix and Match
Gone are the days of monochromatic rooms. In 2024 we’ll see purposeful colour combinations, where you are encouraged to experiment with blending warm and cool tones within your space.
Hit up garage sales, pre-loved markets and op shops for unique pieces that could serve as accent furniture or focal points in your layered colour scheme. Mixing tones doesn't necessitate an entire renovation; sometimes, a few carefully chosen items can work wonders.
Rustic and Natural Textures
Texture is front and centre this year, so look for ways to bring in organic elements. You can upcycle old wooden furniture with a distressed finish or explore handcrafted textiles from local artisans.
Bric-a-brac stores often hide treasures like ceramic vases or quirky decor pieces that can add that much-needed touch of texture to your interiors.
Curves and Edges: A Blend of Shapes
Fluid curves and angular edges continue to shape our spaces. Incorporating this trend into your home can involve getting creative with DIY projects such as experimenting with reupholstering or repainting furniture to introduce these shapes. You can even revamp your space by adding architectural elements like archways or mouldings which can make a significant impact without a hefty price tag.
A Spotlight on Sustainability
In 2024, sustainability takes the spotlight in interior design. A growing collective consciousness around environmental impact drives designers and clients to make more conscious choices. Whether it's understanding different materials' environmental footprint or investing in brands that are actively prioritising sustainability, the focus is shifting towards eco-friendly and mindful selections.
Consider repurposing items, exploring second-hand stores, or opting for sustainable materials for a budget-friendly yet eco-conscious makeover.
Bold and Vibrant Colours
This year, expect a departure from neutral palettes towards bold, audacious colour choices. Grey and white kitchens are giving way to vibrant, edgy combinations. Embrace unique hues and striking colour contrasts to invigorate your space.
