Texture Is In – Thank You ELLE Decor

Palm Beach–based interior designer Lori Deeds of Kemble Interiors says “Brushed or hand-applied finish is where it’s at, like Roman clay or limewash (with its sueded texture) or hand-tooled plaster, which I love doing.” while Los Angeles designer Oliver Furth notes “People want some action to their surfaces”+ “Straight painted sheetrock doesn’t feel exciting right now.”

Brown Renaissance – Beauty with House Beautiful

“For 2024 we will continue to see designs trending out of grays and into browns. Not only will this be seen in fabrics and textiles but also in cabinetry and casegoods,” says Next Wave Designer DuVäl. This wave of chocolate neutrals has also been noted by a survey on design trends the New York Design Center conducted. Over 90 percent of respondents predict that brown will be the color of choice in 2024.

The New Romantics | Aspirational in Architectural Digest

Unspool your ribbons: Romanticism isn’t just for the 19th century—or the 1980s. When embraced with confidence, pinks, reds, florals, lace, and ribbons can be sensual and provocative. Though we may be in the midst of a “bow backlash,” according to Times commentators and Instagram’s peanut gallery, romanticism is undoubtedly having a moment.

Curves, Meet Straight Lines | More from Elle Decor

Wishbone chairs and Serpentine sofas are among the most coveted by designers—both of which share one distinct attribute—curvaceousness. “I’m over the straight line—we’re all about some curves and softer shapes in the new year,” says designer Liu.

Quiet Luxury | So En Vogue the same way a “quiet luxury” wardrobe is assembled, within design, there will be a continued emphasis on classic, investment pieces that you can build a room around. Pieces that are timeless, in classic shapes and silhouettes that can have many lives and evolve through reupholstery —Jake Arnold

Spa-Like Bathrooms | Sprucing Things Up 

Creating a bathroom oasis will be a top priority for both new constructions and renovations, according to multiple designers. “Enhanced bathrooms that mimic the amenities of a spa are going to be on the rise, making a big splash in 2024,” Ginger Curtis, founder and CEO of Urbanology Designs, says.

High Class Coziness | The Business of Home

“Picture the vibe of 2024 like a cozy hug from your favorite sweater—rich harvest tones in furniture, classic florals popping up and walls painted in soothing shades, all coming together to create homes that feel like a quietly luxurious escape..” Mikel Welch, designer and TV personality, New York

Bring on the Butler’s Pantries | Kitchens Coming in HOT at ELLE Decor

Butler’s pantries continue to be the hottest thing going in kitchens,” says Adams. “A dedicated space to store your china and sometimes even a wet bar make these kitchen annexes the height of luxury living.” ..Homeowners are exploring innovative layouts, such as “hidden” kitchens and pantry walls, allowing them to tuck away the cooking area when it’s not in use to maintain a clutter-free, minimalist look.

And there you have it, Abode Realty’s top pick of design trends for 2024.

An undertone of luxury is very evident in the top design trends of 2024, which is somewhat ironic given the economic climate.  If you have the funds to deploy, creating a spa-like bathroom or updating your kitchen to include hidden pantries or appliance storage can go a long way in increasing the market value of your home.

However luxury need not be expensive. As they say, you don’t buy style.  For those on a budget, start with some fresh paint, a DIY plaster wall to add texture in the powder room, vintage finds from a local thrift store, even a candle in a room to help to create an elevated feeling of luxury.

Remember style is merely an expression of how you feel or want to feel, so go on – you do you!
