Trendy or timeless? Decor for ‘24

___

How does a trend become a trend, anyway? If you think about it, one person — in this case a designer — might do something a tad different and everyone else likes it and begins doing their takes on it. Then it’s everywhere. But sometimes you only need a touch or two to update your decor. Paint. A new piece of furniture or a furniture rearrangement. Or a new area rug.

Perhaps that’s why these “lists” come out each year — the ones that tell you what different rooms in homes might look like in the coming year. In this case, it’s the living room, and Realtor.com’s Jennifer Kelly Geddes says the new year ushers in a sense of endless possibilities and a chance to start fresh.

Gray has to fade to nothingness at one point, just for the sake of change. So this is evidently the year for sage green and deep terracottas. “It’s time to push away the 50 shades of gray paint that have been dominating our main living spaces and embrace something with a little more oomph,” says Geddes.

Earth tones are a refreshing change, with plush sofas being best showcased when draped in olive green and warm taupe. Pair them with black and white checked patterns on a small pillow, lampshade, or small rug, and you have a look that is incredibly versatile and lends itself to both ultra transitional and elegant spaces, but also works well in funky, eclectic homes.

Geddes has written about cozy nooks becoming the go-to spaces since the pandemic and that touch persists into 2024. If you have a newer home with an open floor plan, you might use the space under a set of stairs or a window seat with cushions and drapery to get this small slice of heaven to sit, read, or work from home. “For example, a desk can be placed in a corner with a folding screen for some privacy, or two chairs and a small table can be arranged at one end, resulting in a coffee spot for two,” says Geddes.

As for furniture, try getting eco-friendly and combining pieces from different decades for 2024 — like an antique woven chair next to a chunky modern table in your living room corner.

“Mixing pieces from vastly different eras and styles should be done unapologetically, and it’s exactly what we’ll see more of in the new year,” says one designer Geddes consulted. Another example she likes is a Victorian table lamp in a modern living room. Or consider a vintage sofa with a sleek glass coffee table.

While some felt wallpaper might not stand the test of trend design, they were wrong. Geddes says it will never go out of style, whether you apply it on an accent wall in your living room, in a half-bath, or even on the ceiling of your dining room. Whether the designs are classic, monochromatic or ornate, you can use it all over the house —from a powder room to a dining room wall.
