As a new year gets underway, homeowners often look to the latest home furnishing trends to help them refresh and renovate their spaces for the coming year. Drawing inspiration from the Fall 2023 High Point Market and insights from interior design experts, we've curated a list of home decor trends for the new year.

Whether you're looking to infuse your space with statement colors, experiment with new textures or patterns, or embrace the convenience of smart home integrations, here are several trends for updating and elevating your home in 2024.

Colorful Revival: Blues, Greens, and 'Peach Fuzz'

We've collectively endured a lot over the past few years, so it's no wonder colors are trending toward calming tones. That's why consumers today embrace nature's soothing influence by incorporating both blues and greens into their homes.

However, keep an eye on the color of the year, Peach Fuzz, a warm-toned peach, signaling the rise of orange hues—and a great way to add a pop of color to your space. From furniture finishes to decorative elements, these colors can easily be incorporated as a complementary accent color or the overall hue in your room.

A Revival of Soft Geometry

Angle your way into the new year with a nod to the soft geometry of the past century. This trend is inspired by a geometric mix of patterns, colors, natural wood finishes, and other influences that can add just the right modern vibe.

Elevate your living space with the timeless elegance of geometric patterns that pay homage to Mid-Century, Bauhaus, Art Deco, and Memphis design influences. This trend allows you to infuse your space with timeless elegance, marrying contemporary aesthetics with classic lines and shapes that defined these iconic design eras.

Metallic Moments

Warm metallic finishes will pull focus in 2024. Beyond furniture, metallic accents are being incorporated in everything from wall coverings to countertops and even stonework. From bronze and brass to brushed carbon and nickel, these finishes add a touch of glamour and warmth to interior spaces. Darker metallics like iron can offer a hand-forged and matte appearance, creating a sophisticated and modern ambiance.

But while a few metallic accents can go a long way toward elevating your interior spaces, remember, less is more. Be sure to soften your spaces with other finishes, textures, and materials to enhance the overall aesthetic.

Stunning Stone-Inspired Pieces

Monolithic design—which creates a piece from a single type of material—made its way into homes earlier this decade. This year, monolithic stone pieces or designs with stone or faux stone finishes, especially on occasional tables, will dominate.

Colorful marble and realistic faux-marble finishes add a touch of luxury to your living space, providing a contemporary twist to traditional stone materials. And, bonus, these stone pieces promise to play very well with metallic accents throughout the space.

Warm Wood Finishes for Modern Luxury

The popularity of various wood finishes tends to ebb and flow each year, yet warm wood tones continue to take center stage in homes today. This year, designers predict darker woods or darker finishes on lighter woods will reign supreme.

Opt for furniture or accents made from naturally dark woods such as walnut or teak. Lighter woods are also being stained in rich chocolates, deep ash brown tones and warm coffee tones.

Smart Home Integrations

In a tech-driven era, smart home integrations are becoming more prevalent. We're seeing this in everything from smart home and security systems to lighting and kitchen appliances. Even furniture is becoming "smarter" with tech-incorporated features.

If you're wanting to transition to a smart home, consider starting with smart switches, outlets, and lightbulbs. You can also look for furniture with built-in technology that allows you to keep devices charged and near at hand. Be sure your furniture includes ways to manage and hide cords and cables to keep your spaces tidy.

Multi-functional Spaces

Versatility is key in 2024, and multi-functional furniture effortlessly transitions spaces from one function to the next. This could mean carving out a convertible workspace in your dining or living room with furniture that can go from work to relaxation with a few simple adjustments.

Whether it's a home office, dining room, or entertainment area, look for pieces optimized to complement multi-use spaces. Explore storage solutions that fit under stairs, in hallways, and in mudrooms to maximize functionality without compromising style.

As you look to refresh your spaces or start anew in 2024, let these trends guide you toward creating a home that reflects your style and embraces the functionality you need. 

From vibrant hues inspired by nature to the integration of smart technology, you can ensure your home is on-trend, highly functional, and reflects your unique personality. Celebrate the new year with a fresh perspective and a home that elevates your lifestyle.
