What’s In and Out for 2024
Similar to the fashion industry, the realm of interior design is also influenced by the ever-
changing trends that evolve at a rapid pace. Determining what designs are timeless and what
are fleeting can be quite a challenge. Additionally, predicting the upcoming trends pose a
significant challenge as well.
I feel quietly confident that we have veered away from the path of unattainable and impractical
home minimalism that seemed to dominate interior trends in the past decade. Instead, we are
witnessing a shift towards embracing patterns, displaying book stacks, utilizing open shelving,
and adorning walls with art arrangements. The focus is not on creating a messy environment,
but rather on crafting a timeless space that feels lived-in, functional, and enjoyable.
Allow me to guide you through the 2024 journey to stay current with a scaled-down version that
complements and fits in with the classic La Maison style … a space you can always grow
with—even when your style or trends change.

OUT – TRENDS THAT BID ADIEU:
Ultra-Modern Minimalism: Shift away from stark minimalism to embrace a more vibrant and personalized maximalism.
Bright White Lighting: Soften the ambiance with warmer lighting.
Dark Walls and Grey Walls: Opt for lighter tones to create an airy and inviting space.
Sliding Barn Doors: Step away from the rustic charm of sliding barn doors.
Uncomfortable Sofas: Say goodbye to seating that sacrifices comfort for style; 2024 calls for a perfect fusion of both.
Precious Rugs that are too nice to walk on: Embrace practicality without compromising aesthetics—rugs should be enjoyed, not just admired.
Fiddle Leaf Figs: Make room for alternative greenery options as the iconic fiddle leaf fig takes a step back.
Pans Hanging Over the Island Bench: Opt for sleek and organized kitchen spaces, bidding adieu to the trend of pans hanging overhead.
Geometrics, Gingham, and Insect Motifs Pattern Designs: Step away from these patterns and embrace a diverse range of textures and designs.
Dining Benches: Mix it up with unique dining chairs, leaving the era of dining benches behind.
All-White Interiors, Kitchens, or Bathrooms: Explore a more eclectic and vibrant color palette, moving away from the simplicity of all-white spaces.
Pale Greens: Richer and bolder shades take the spotlight as pale greens make their exit.
Curved Sofas: Clean lines and bold statements are in; say farewell to the era of curved sofas.
Ginghams: Make space for a more diverse range of patterns and textures, leaving behind the classic gingham patterns.
As Susan Klimala of TKS Design Group suggests, 2024 welcomes a grown-up maximalism, where color, texture, and geometric shapes take center stage. It’s a celebration of individuality and a departure from the constraints of ultra-modern minimalism.

This year invites you to merge timeless elegance with contemporary freshness. From captivating patterned wallpapers to comfortable yet statement-making sofas, the options are as diverse as they are exciting.
