2024 Design Trend Predictions and our own Moodboards

Following your own interior design instincts that reflect your personality and tastes has to be at the heart of choices for your home.

As I’ve shared previously, my personal approach to interiors and ‘trends’ is to choose a timeless neutral foundation, especially for more expensive permanent fixtures such as kitchens, flooring and large furniture. This creates the freedom to refresh designs with accessories, wall treatments or soft furnishings if a trend or style comes along that inspires you.

My favourite thing to do is to create a timeless transitional scheme by layering modern with classic as it will never look out of date and always be individual. 

Here I’m sharing my 2024 Design Trend Predictions and some of our own Moodboards for the forever home renovation we’re starting this month.


Post covid there was a shift from cool greys and whites towards warmer neutrals where home owners could feel relaxed in their surroundings, particularly as more of us began to work from home. In 2024 I think we’ll still see those calming neutrals but there’ll also be muted colours such as greens, taupes, natural clay, rusts and warm charcoals. Dulux’s Colour of the Year for 2024 is in fact a muted soft blush.

Pale woods will be blended with darker rustic pieces and cool chromes and steel will be mixed with warm antique brass and dark iron. This will create the look that the space has been developed over time.

In our own renovation plans, i’m introducing some moodier tones along with re-imagined nostalgic fixtures and hardware. The traditional pantry is also back in a big way and I’m beyond happy that we managed to fit one in our house plans!

The muted colours and tones will bring with it a shift towards a more relaxed lived-in style that will be a nod to designs of the past. Think warm tan leather, checked patterns, fringes and frills, comfy inviting furniture and more antique-like details on pieces such as lighting, picture frames and hardware.

We ourselves are bringing an old gentleman’s club with modern twist to Dan’s new office, and we’re updating the classic black and white chequerboard floor with a warm grey and linen white version in the bootility.

Looking at my own homeware collection I’ve seen a huge increase in the love of my raw textured pieces such as the antique marmalade pots in my Vintage Collection, hand carved dough bowls in mango wood, antique brass cowbells and rustic vases. This shows a move towards a home that feels lived in, with weathered pieces that tell a story blended with clean modern pieces such as white ceramics and veined marble trays.

In the kitchen, expect layers of rustic wooden boards and utensils in vintage pots that bring personality. In our kitchen designs I’ve opted for a modern slab oak wood island and shaker linen white surrounding cabinets, both with Caesarstone Empira White Marble Quartz to create an elevated twist on the classic shaker kitchen. I’ll also use darker tones and a mix of brass and brushed steel to add contrast and personality.

Outside the trend will continue so expect rattan, wicker and woven garden furniture. We’ve just bought a hammock in a fair-trade fabric to enjoy in the spring. You can find similar here

Textures on walls will trend too, with imperfect or ribbed tiles (making a bigger statement up to the ceiling), stone brick fireplaces, fluted wall panelling and sisal effect wallpaper. Panelling doesn’t seem to be going anywhere but in line with the move towards the traditional, perhaps it’ll be less modern in style.

In our own living room alcoves we’re opting for textured wallpaper and I’m hoping for a stone fireplace in the open plan living room plus a DIY ribbed tile fire surround in the snug.
