It’s that time of year again when we look to interior designers, influencers, architects, and homeware brands to spot the biggest trends for 2024. At Legacy South, we love the new opportunities each year brings to find a new sense of home and infuse it with your style, so we’ve sought out 10 trends set to take 2024 by storm. This year’s trends are all about making your home somewhere you feel at ease, love to be, and can’t wait to entertain in. Let’s dive in!
10 Top Interior Design & Architecture Trends for a Stylish 2024
1. Peach and Apricot Hues
Pantone named “Peach Fuzz” 2024 Color of the Year, which heralds a shift toward warm, inviting shades that strike the perfect balance between muted pastels and vibrant bright shades. These hues work wonders across various textures and fabrics, offering flexibility in pairing with neutrals or bold colors. This tile at Markham East perfectly complements the light tones in this bathroom, creating a cozy and whimsical feel.
2. Mixed Metals
Chrome, steel, bronze, and aluminum are taking center stage in 2024’s design palette, and you don’t need to pick just one. As predicted by Pinterest (see their “Hot Metals” board for some inspiration), these metals offer a sleek contrast to softer textures, such as patterned rugs and velvet cushions, creating a harmonious blend of warmth and modernity.
3. Jewel Tone Comeback
The rich, saturated hues reminiscent of precious gems are making a grand return, offering rooms an air of warmth and luxury. Whether used extensively or as bold accents, these colors promise to elevate any space with their deep vibrancy. The Arlo Floorplan at Markham East easily mixes in this emerald-tone backsplash with the rest of the kitchen seamlessly and elegantly.
4. Feminine Romance
For those with a penchant for florals, lace, and shades of pink and red, this year offers an abundance of choices. This bedroom in our Caraway community is the perfect girl’s room, and its clean layout provides the perfect blank canvas for adding lovely and delicate details. Moving away from cottagecore, this trend will see homeware manufacturers offering us bright, spring-like colors and romantic details.
5. Blending Historical Eras
Throw out the rulebook in 2024, as this year encourages a mix-and-match approach to interior design, blending different historical styles in one space, like this unique East Nashville historic home built by Legacy South. It’s an invitation to explore antique markets and thrift stores in Nashville and beyond, allowing you to create a unique space that speaks directly to you.
6. Bringing the Outdoors In
Emphasizing a connection with nature, architects are focusing on large, sun-facing windows that flood spaces with natural light, as seen on this gorgeous home at Fanning Bend on Tims Ford Lake. Not only does this make your space one you want to spend time in, but doing so will give you a healthy dose of vitamin D and boost happiness. Pair these light spaces with desert tones for a tranquil environment that invites you to take a deep breath whenever you use it.
7. Multi-Purpose Spaces
Architects understand that homes need to serve a wide range of purposes, and so new home floor plans are designed to offer flexibility. Dining rooms can be playrooms, bedrooms can transform into offices, and it’s entirely up to you and your evolving needs. Better still, in a Legacy South home like this one at Fanning Bend, you’ll also find functional spaces, such as closets, mud rooms, and spacious garages that will keep your living spaces free of clutter.
8. Earthy Color Palettes
For those drawn to natural aesthetics, earthy tones like moss greens, browns, and muted beiges and stones continue to be popular. These colors offer a serene and grounded ambiance to any space. Combine these colors with natural fabrics, such as leather, suede, and wool for a truly grounded feel.
9. Zero-Waste and Energy-Efficient Living
Architects and manufacturers are looking for new ways to innovate their processes and produce zero-waste and energy-efficient products and homes. This shift not only helps reduce environmental impact for new home buyers but also helps reduce monthly expenses. A win-win.
10. Bathroom Oasis
Bathrooms are in the spotlight in 2024; dark rooms are out, and light, spa-like bathrooms are in. Full-tile designs with gentle ceramics from floor to ceiling in airy, bright colors make these spaces perfect for relaxation and self-care.
These 2024 trends are all about creating spaces that are not just aesthetically pleasing but also resonate with your personal style and functional needs.
