Reconnecting with Nature and Serene Simplicity: Jackson Design and Remodeling Reveals 2024 Design and Remodeling Trends Forecast
Creating a calming home integrated with natural surroundings is a prevailing theme for 2024, while spaces designed to feel like a tropical retreat are making waves
(San Diego, CA – November 20, 2023) Jackson Design and Remodeling’s critically acclaimed designers and architects, who have been featured in major national print and online publications including The Wall Street Journal, Dwell, HGTV, Architectural Digest and USA Today have revealed their list of the top interior design trends for 2024. While last year’s trends focused on home as a retreat, 2024 will see that interest in comfort expanded to embrace the outdoors and dream destinations with an emphasis on organic materials and greenery. On the other end of the spectrum, joy and positivity are making an impression with imaginative combinations of style, texture, pattern, and color.
According to award winning Senior Interior Designer at Jackson Design and Remodeling Jen Pinto, “Relaxing home design that balances simplicity and luxury with the calming influence of nature and the tranquility of a Bali retreat will continue to gain in popularity as we head into 2024. We’re also inspired by the colorful creativity of ‘Dopamine Decor’ and the resurgence of interest in mixing styles from different eras.”
This high energy trend is about designing spaces that inspire joy and positivity, typically by accessorizing with decorations that have personal meaning to you and experimenting with a free mix of bold colors and patterns. Tempted to wallpaper your powder room in animal print or paint a living room wall hot pink? This is the trend to inspire you.
Organic Modern Design
The organic modern style is becoming a classic, especially in California. A connection to nature is emphasized with elements of minimalism, boho, and modern design. The palette is neutral and warm, while the lines are clean and uncluttered. Textures are essential, from raw, repurposed woods, to smooth natural stones.
Embracing the charm of simpler living, farmcore is a progression of cottagecore with a more rustic take on the concept. Vintage and antique pieces, from tin containers to repurposed farm equipment, are at the heart of this trend, complemented by earthy hues and natural materials.
This “animal-first architecture” trend first started gaining momentum in 2021 when everyone was spending more time at home with their pets. Homeowners are continuing to invest significant thought and resources into designing their homes to make their beloved pets safe and comfortable. From electronic entrance doors and custom designed feeding stations to custom showers and full-on “pet condos”, barkitecture blends the daily needs of pets with high-end architecture and design.
Biophilic design stimulates all the senses with homes that connect us more deeply to nature. Think indoor gardens and natural materials like wood, stone, and sustainable textiles, or outdoor living spaces that integrate seamlessly with your interior.
Like the “no makeup makeup look” this less-is-more “quiet luxury” aesthetic is expressed with comfortable, pared-back, yet opulent statement elements that aim to make a space look less “decorated”. Minimaluxe focuses on bringing fewer elements into a space and carefully selecting each piece to be designed with the highest level of craftsmanship for maximum beauty and durability.
Japanese and Scandinavian design are the perfect duo to accomplish serene functionality in your home. Clean lines, neutral colors, and natural light are prominent, accented with materials like wood and stone. While similar to other trends focused on minimalism in this year’s roundup, Japandi has a more casual, easygoing feeling.
Expressing individuality is big in 2024: mixing styles from different eras such as Mid-Century, the 1970s, and the 1980s is a creative way to make a personal statement. Adding unique vintage and antique elements makes your home feel one-of-a-kind.
As minimalism begins to make way for maximalism in the coming year, pattern and texture are coming to the forefront. Experimenting extravagantly with combinations of contrasting colors and materials creates a tactile and visual experience where personal expression reigns.
Inspired by the tropical luxury of a Balinese indoor/outdoor oasis, this style is achieved with natural stone, bamboo elements, and attention to natural light, greenery, and organic texture. Modern Balinese interior design balances a peaceful island vibe with the clean lines of a modern home for the ultimate open, earthy, and airy oasis.
Reclaimed materials, organic fabrics, and renewable resources continue to be essential to eco-conscious homeowners who want to understand the impact of the materials in their homes. This trend is about consuming less and giving thoughtful consideration to each material used in a home – its source, manufacturing process, and ability to perform multiple functions while conserving energy and space.
First sparked a few years ago when traveling was limited, this trend to bring resort living home continues to grow in popularity. Whether it’s a spa-like bathroom with all of the amenities or an expansive outdoor living space with a pool and lounging area, homeowners love the feeling of living in a luxury 5-star hotel.
Warm is the New Cool
Warm neutrals are overtaking cool grays in the coming year. The new beige is softer, lighter, and creamier than the beige of decades past, while ivory, cream or vanilla are fresh new alternatives to white. This move toward warmer neutrals works nicely with spaces focused on nature, minimalism, and comfort.
From timeless checkerboard tile, to darker flooring with bold patterns, to patterned stone or marble, innovative ideas in flooring are underfoot in 2024. Wood flooring remains a timeless choice, trending toward the natural, rustic and minimalist in keeping with the other home design trends on the rise this year.
