Before we get into the design themes of the new year we are going to quickly discuss the predicted colour palette for 2024 as it brings some fresh changes to colour design.
Especially the use of patterns to introduce colour into a space. This sophisticated introduction of colour creates interest and wow in space compared to the sterile designs of yesteryear.
Sky blue is set to be one of the statement colours of the year. Some designers are loving the use of sky blue alongside a palette made up of sunset hues. Sky blue enhances and softens these usually sharp tones to create a warm fuzzy aurora.
Watercolours are an excellent way to soften feature walls. Whether it is a watercolour wallpaper or textile; they break up a space and invite curiosity.
Prolific in the 60’s and 70’s burnt orange is set to make its comeback in 2024. Burnt orange creates warm spaces and allows for other colours to pop out against it creating mesmerising features in your home.
Ultraviolet is making a resurgence with many designers combining ultraviolet backdrops with furniture and accessories styled in sunny dyes. Allowing these accessories to pop creating a luxurious space.
Kahki is set to dominate in 2024, it has been notably styled alongside purple and earth-tone accents at recent trade shows. This colour combination creates a clean transformation from inside to outside promoting a peaceful and calming atmosphere.
The sterile whites from the 2000 are on the way out and warm neutral whites and browns are in. Not just paint colours some designers are starting to incorporate different textures into their homes through woods, fabrics and art pieces to create interesting and warm areas.
There are some big changes set to come in 2024 with some of the prolific themes of the past decade on the way out.
Intricate tiled backsplashes have become prolific in recent years however some interior designers are looking to break up these intricate designs. The use of stone slab (typically the same stone as benches) backsplashes behind stoves and range hoods introduces an interesting change in patterns.
Herringbone tiles have been in for a few years now however designers are looking to switch it up in 2024. Existing verticle and horizontal angled herringbone patterns are making way for new 45° designs to create modern designs that separate themselves from past herringbone designs.
Mudrooms have been on the rise in recent years and they are the perfect pairing with a laundry to increase the efficiency and usability of your home. They can become an all-in-one room for dirty clothes from inside the home and dirty shoes and clothes from outside, keeping the rest of your home free from outdoor dirt.
Handmade and custom design elements are on the rise heading into 2024. Many choose to integrate custom lighting or personalised bespoke vanities and fixtures into the home to add character and make a one-of-a-kind home.
Appliances garages are set to become the kitchen storage norm in 2024 these garages allow for ease of access to your appliances such as toasters and coffee machines while still allowing for them to be stowed away with ease. They can span from a little cupboard at the end of your kitchen bench to a whole butler’s pantry-style room.
These elements have been on the rise in past years and aren't set to slow down coming into 2024. With more and more emphasis being placed on environmentally friendly homes these designs are perfect. They allow for the easy introduction of different textures into a space to cut through the sterile white-on-white designs of the early 2000s.
These designs can introduce depth and roughness to your home. They can be introduced into bathroom cabinets, under kitchen islands and in bedroom feature walls.
Statement floors are making a resurgence. Many home builders are welcoming marble and patterned stone floors into their homes to create depth and cosmic spaces that draw attention into the room.
2024 is set to be the year of eco-friendly and native gardens to create rustic and relaxing outdoor areas.
Planting in-between pavers is increasing in popularity, as it breaks up larger lawns or open spaces it also softens areas with paver paths. Allowing for creative patterns and other features to be integrated into your landscaping.
Edimentals are perennial plants that combine edibility with beauty. These include flowering fruits and vegies, berries (currants, elderberries etc), and herbs. These plants break the homage that veggie gardens can't be aesthetic and can easily be incorporated into a garden space.
Naturalistic planting in combination with native plants can implant your home into the surrounding wilderness. This creates a strong link with your home and the ecosystem that surrounds it.
Gravel gardens use a layer of gravel instead of mulch and topsoil to encourage deeper root systems and more drought-resistant plants. This is growing in popularity as summers are getting hotter and dry periods are getting longer.
Landscape design is growing more and more fond of pollinators as a way to help keep gardens and ecosystems vibrant and thriving. These gardens combine flowering native and non-native plants and will entice not just bees but also butterflies and other pollinators into your yard. When used in conjunction with a bee box can provide you with a near-infinite supply of honey.
