Planning a big home décor upgrade in 2024? We’ve been seeing a lot of excitement in the interior design arena in recent times—the revival of some classic styles, and the renewal of socially aware and environmentally conscious design. 

We’ve curated the home decor ideas that are predicted to be on top of designers’ hot lists this year. Read on to get a glimpse of the direction that home décor will take in the year to come, as anticipated by our top HomeLane designers!

Trend 1: Sustainable and Eco-Friendly Interior Designs

The world is waking up to the numbing realisation that global warming is already happening, and climate change is a very harsh reality. Sustainability and mindful living are concepts we should all aspire to, in order to reduce the harmful impact our collective actions have on the planet. Eco-friendly interior design is a small way in which each of us can contribute to keeping the planet safe for our future generations. 

Here are some eco-conscious ideas for designing an environmentally friendly home:

Upcycle and recycle: Choose furniture made from reclaimed or recycled materials. Upcycled pieces are a great idea to add a unique touch to your home, and will also reduce the need for new resources.

Use sustainable materials: Eco-friendly materials like bamboo, wicker, reclaimed wood, or recycled tiles have a lower environmental impact and are sustainable.

Opt for energy-efficient lighting: LED or CFL bulbs are energy-efficient and have a longer lifespan, when compared to traditional incandescent lamps. 

Choose organic fabrics: When selecting textiles and furnishings, choose natural and organic fabrics such as cotton, linen, hemp, or wool. These materials are biodegradable and have a lower carbon footprint.

Buy energy-efficient appliances: Invest in energy-efficient appliances with five-star ratings, that consume less energy and will reduce your electricity bills a great deal. Appliances that use solar energy are an even better option.

Install solar panels for renewable energy: You can install solar panels to harness clean, renewable energy. This can significantly reduce your reliance on traditional energy sources. Any excess energy can be given back to the grid and you will receive compensation.

Trend 2: Vintage Revival and Timeless Classics

Anything that’s good will eventually find its way back into our homes, and it’s no surprise that retro trends and classical designs  are making a comeback! 

  • Mid-century modern influences from the 50s and 60s are seeing a resurgence, with clean lines, functional design, and organic shapes coming back on trend. 
  • Retro colours and patterns are again in the limelight. Think mustard yellows, avocado greens, and bold wallpaper prints, and you’ll know what we are talking about!
  • Furniture and decor with distressed or weathered finishes lend a rustic and well-loved appearance that many modern homes aspire to achieve.
  • Accessorising with antique items, such as aged brass or copper decor, old-fashioned mirrors, and wind-up grandfather clocks, adds vintage charm to your home.
  • Chandeliers, pendant lights, and wall sconces with timeless designs can serve as focal points in classic interiors.
  • Investing in high-quality furniture with classic lines and natural materials, such as rose wood and top-grain leather. Even if you have to pay a little more, these pieces will age beautifully and last long, lending enduring appeal to your home.
  • Old-fashioned cabinets with hand crafted elements are coming back on trend. Budget-friendly options, such as kitchens with membrane shutters that mimic the look of classical kitchens, are also popular.

Trend 3: Biophilic Design and Indoor Greenery

One of the most popular home décor trends in recent years, biophilic interior design is not going away anytime soon! 

During the years of COVID, all of us felt the loss of outdoor spaces in our lives. The very real ennui that came from staying cooped up indoors all day renewed people’s appreciation for all things to do with nature, and brought in the biophilic trend into our homes. More than just an aesthetic fad, biophilic design reconnects us with the outdoors, and is known to instantly refresh and restore our energy.

Adding plants to your home is just one of many ways to embrace this trend. You can also cultivate green living walls both inside and outside your home, or even incorporate botanical prints and posters if you don’t have the space for indoor greenery

Nature-inspired textiles and furnishings also help to restore our connection with the outdoors; as also materials and finishes that are derived from nature, such as stone or mud. Celebrate elements of nature in your home, and show your love for the earth by being a little kinder to the planet.

Trend 4: Unique Home Furnishing Ideas

 Your home is uniquely all about you—and even if you are following the hot and happening global design trends, you should always look for ways to add your personal touch to your home interior. Think creatively, and look for out-of-the-box décor ideas that cannot be duplicated easily.

Outlined below are just a few ideas, but you can experiment with a whole lot more!

  • Green Gallery Wall:

Create a gallery wall with a twist, by working all the pictures around a common theme. This homeowner has crafted a medley of leafy patterns and prints for a unique and very refreshing touch. You can try doing this yourself, or you can use prints of leafy shapes taken off the internet.

  • Personalised Wallpapers:

It’s very easy to capture digital photographs these days, and with the high-tech smartphones most of us have, editing images is even easier. Pick your favourite holiday photographs and take large, life-sized prints that can be used as wallpaper. Keep those cherished memories alive! 

  • Recycle and Repurpose!

Put your creativity to good use by finding unique uses for old, discarded items that would otherwise end up in a landfill! You can consider using recycled crates as storage units, or an old wooden cable drum wheel as a table. 

You can also give new life to old furniture by repurposing it. For example, try turning an old door into a unique dining table or transforming a broken ladder into a bookshelf!

  • Family Heirlooms: Look around in your grandmother’s store room and you may find vintage tables, chairs that are literally on their last leg, or a rickety old dressing table. Restore it with the help of a trusty carpenter and give it pride of place in your living room.
  • Get Crafty with DIY:

The best way to add your own unique touch to your home décor is by incorporating DIY craftwork. This could be anything from abstract paintings or embroidered cushions, to DIY sculptures or hand-knotted macrame. Not only does craft give you a lot of joy, it will also add to your sense of accomplishment! 

Trend 5: Wall Decor Ideas for Home Interiors 

Transforming a bare wall into an eye-catching display is a fun way to breathe new life into a tired room. A gallery wall can spark off interesting conversations and showcase precious memories. 

Wall décor that is unique and hand-curated is an increasingly popular home décor trend. You can adapt your gallery wall to suit the space you have. Choose to add artwork to a plain white wall, or paint your gallery wall a bold colour to dial up the drama!
