Flower Market Prints
Floral art is in bloom and flower market prints will remain a popular home decor trend in 2024. These prints, often featuring the names of various cities, serve as an accessible form of personalized art and can be found in stores like Opposite Wall, Dessenio and Etsy.
Bloemenmarkt Poster, Opposite Wall, $60.
The Quiet Luxury Aesthetic
The quiet luxury aesthetic has been a popular fashion choice over the last year and will transition into interiors in 2024. Joy Chao, the lead designer at JHA, recommends achieving this trend at home by combining items in similar colours but in different textures for a cohesive and layered look. Details like European white oak, Italian limestone, flax linen and alpaca wool are truly timeless and should be incorporated in your home wherever possible.
Alpaca Wool Throw, Silk & Snow, $250.
Spindle Decor and Furniture
Spindle accents — detailed notches or bulbs on furniture such as chairs and bookshelves — are poised to become a significant home trend in 2024. What was once a Victorian armchair design element is now making a comeback, reflecting an overall growing appreciation for antique furniture in modern pieces.

Are you planning a bathroom or kitchen renovation in 2024? Textured stone will be the more popular choice in the coming months. Opt for more eclectic-looking textured stone and marble finishes with deeply-coloured veins for countertops, backsplashes and even tabletops.
Imagine a sofa that’s like building blocks for your living space – that’s what modular sofas are all about. Whether you have a small studio apartment or are looking for spacious seating for the whole family, you can easily switch, swap and rearrange the pieces to fit any room perfectly. As we all try to lower our carbon footprints, the modular sofa trend is both a cost-effective and sustainable choice.

If the trendiest home colour palettes of 2024 are any indication, we are moving away from the idea of a completely neutral home. “There will be a growing preference for incorporating richer, bolder tones, even within the neutral palette, in the upcoming years. Blues, in particular, continue to enjoy enduring popularity,” says Jennifer Ertel, the Senior Colour Designer at Brooklinen. So, get ready to be on the lookout for blue accents for your home. And remember, the more textured they are, the better!
