biophilic interior

As we step into a new year, the interior design landscape is changing before our very eyes as design harmonises with function. 2023 has seen the rise and fall of trends as new ideas replace the old, to say nothing of the evolution taking place in those trends that have stood the test of time. Let's explore some key upcoming interior design trends that will shape interior design in 2024.

Biophilic Designs

Biophilic design continues to be a dominant trend with more and more of us longing for the warmth of a tropical paradise, especially as we emerge from winter. Incorporating foliage into our homes brings a much-needed connection with nature.

Rich, botanical wallpapers, textured surfaces, tropical houseplants, and earthy colour schemes all come together to create an uplifting space that pushes back against the winter gloom.

One design choice that works particularly well with a Biophilic Interior is the use of metallics. Golds and rose golds pair beautifully with rich wallpapers to create a light layering effect. Contrast matt textures with a reflective shine for the optimum effect.

Smart Technology

Home automation is becoming more and more reliable as technology advances and remains a popular choice for tech-savvy households. We are set to see this trend rise through 2024 with new levels of sophisticated technology.

From fully automated lighting to remote heating control (not to mention home security) the integration of smart technology is advancing the way that we live. It helps us to make the most of our living spaces, and making our comfort far more accessible.

Sustainable and Recyclable Materials

The Ocean Collection uses reclaimed fishing nets to create stunning 3D printed designs.

There’s a growing number of interior designers, electrical professionals, and homeowners that are opting for more eco-friendly materials, with a growing focus on sustainability. We expect to see a shift away from mass-produced plastics and synthetic materials, and toward recycled woods and glass, as well as upcycled materials that minimise the environmental footprint.

Hand-made furniture, and lighting will become a staple, adding a personal touch to interiors, as well as contribute to more sustainable living. Expect to see distressed finishes, handmade ceramics, and furniture with a weathered charm as we break away from uniformity.

One company that nurtures their appreciation for handcrafted artisanal pieces is Soho Lighting, whose sustainable approach is shaping the way we light our homes. Their superb Ocean Collection showcases unique 3D printed designs, carefully crafted from fishing nets reclaimed from our oceans.

Peach Interiors

The exciting release of Pantones Colour of the Year 2024 brings warmth to our interiors with 'Peach Fuzz', a soft hue described by Pantone as “a velvety gentle peach whose all-embracing spirit enriches heart, mind, and body”.

Whether introduced as a minimalist statement wall, or as stylish accent pieces paired with a wider, maximalist colour palette, peach tones will take centre stage in style conscious homes. We will see designers embracing peach to create strategic focal points in 2024, as well bringing comfort and serenity to a space.
