I spend a lot of time shopping and following design trends. Here's what I see for 2024. It's going to be good! You can see that we've been using these trends in our own designs for the last year. (All photos are from House Candy Home projects- in no particular order) If you need some help and guidance in your own home, we're here for you. Happy New Year!

Curved Furniture: Soft, rounded edges in furniture pieces, deviating from sharp lines for a more organic and inviting feel.
Statement Lighting: Can lighting is not enough. Lighting is jewelry and should be incorporated into your home design. Indulge in oversized pendants and sculptural sconces. Make a statement with interesting table lamps and floor lamps. Replae your shades for a quick update. There are also many cool cordless options hitting the market too. A little lighting goes a long way.
Light and Midtone Woods for Flooring and Cabinetry: Gray stained woods are finally out. Natural wood colors are in! I always say "nature never goes out of style, so if nature makes it, then we instinctually like it. You just can't go wrong with mother nature." You'll also notice that wood cabinetry is back, but with a modern twist.
Flexible Spaces: Adaptable layouts that serve multiple purposes, especially with the rise of remote work and multi-generational living are increasing in popularity.
Be Bold: Make your space personal and don't be afraid to be bold. Your home should not look like your neighbor's house. Avoid cookie cutter style.
Arches: The curves continue, look to see arched doorways, windows and mirrors.
Welcome Cozy Neutrals: Taupe and creamy whites are calming and on trend for walls, cabinetry, furnishings and decor. Look to see more taupe cabinets in lieu of an all white kitchen. And don't forget to add texture to these soft looks for an extra cozy feel.
Warm, Earthy Tones including Brown: Tans, greens, terracottas, and other warm, earth-inspired colors are dominating interior palettes. "We'll be drowning in brown in all the best ways in 2024. Think about coffee, cappuccino and lattes and how those warm colors hit the spot just like your afternoon Starbucks fix." says Brad Ramsey Interiors
Natural Stone Surfaces:. Did you know that they are banning engineered stone counters like quartz in Australia? They found that they can cause harm to the fabricators. Look to granite, quartzite and marble as a natural and timeless solution. Quartzite is the most durable, heat and stain resistant of the lot.
Wallpaper: Wallpaper continues to add depth, style and liveliness to spaces. Just don't go overboard as it's not fun to remove.
