Home décor trends for 2024

And just like that, another year is over, but what does 2024 have in store for the UK’s most stylish homes? We reveal the top interior design trends for the year ahead… 

Decorating with intention 

As the minimalism trend continues to be commodified into a means of simplifying the home, we might see fewer solid blocks of colour and more well-placed, thoughtful accent pieces to catch the eye. The ‘everything has a place’ look has taken centre stage in recent years, but it isn’t an easy aesthetic to achieve. A good place to start is focusing on smart storage solutions and organisation to cut out the clutter and give your home that brand-new feel. 

Victorian era accents 

For a seamless blend of old and new in the home, we’re seeing a rise in interest in the aesthetics of the 19th century. With ornate oak pieces, delicate tiles and simple shapes, the Victorian era adds texture to the home as well as a timeless, opulent aesthetic.


This year, we’re transforming old into new through creative reuse, or ‘upcycling’. The home accumulates a wealth of waste products yearly, but some are better off transformed than thrown away. Breathe some new life into your home without having to replace a thing. Painting, fixing, and transforming old furniture items will leave your home with a unique and original feel.  

Statement tiles 

Bold backsplashes and statement shower walls can break up the monotony of a room with a touch of colour and texture. Tiles are easy to clean and maintain, which would explain their rise in popularity within modern family homes. From porcelain and ceramic to glass and natural stone, there is an endless array of shapes and styles to choose from. 

Window seats 

Window seats with hidden storage and big, fluffy pillows are the perfect way to kick back with a book and take in the views from the outside world. The best part is that you don’t need to chop into any floor space to implement this extra seating area, making it ideal for smaller living rooms and bedrooms.

Understated luxury

Understated luxury is a subtle and thoughtful application of elegance in the home to enhance everyday living. Interiors with this theme will feature plenty of discreet smart technology, sustainable materials, and classic design elements to balance the contemporary style.

The renaissance of brown interiors 

2023 was a big year for soft, muted greys, but the next natural transition appears to be classic browns. Chocolate neutrals are likely to be seen in fabrics, textiles, and cabinetry, introducing a much needed sense of warmth into the home.
