Trendy Interior Design Styles 2024

If you plan to renovate your new house or are going to update the environment that has become familiar, you are probably already looking for suitable solutions, or at least thinking about them. Designers recommend starting not with furniture, decoration, or decor – but deciding on a style. Thus, researching trendy interior design styles is a great start. 

We have repeatedly said that stylistic accuracy has ceased to be obligatory over the past years, and a discreet mix of techniques and solutions borrowed from different directions comes to the fore. However, you need some foundation for this mix, based on which you create your dream design. 

Today, designers have outlined a particular division between styles firmly inscribed in the design encyclopedia, which have become classic. Such trends are known even to those not interested in interior design – these are the same Classic, Modern, Contemporary, Art Deco, and Minimalism. However, some styles either emerged relatively recently under the influence of other directions and the current world situation or do not enjoy stable popularity and break into the hit list of current trends from time to time.

However, this does not mean that interior design will quickly cease to be fashionable. On the contrary, such directions allow one to fully show individuality and avoid the situation “like everyone else.” The trending interior design styles feature all-time favorites with timeless prospects and less popular yet hitting styles of the season for more personalized design projects. 


Closeness to nature is regarded by residents of big cities as a luxury. The new season is the time to afford such a “luxurious” interior. We all need relaxation, naturalness, and freshness, and Eco can fully provide all this. We cannot help but mention environmental awareness and sustainability as part of the Eco-style, one of the top interior design styles. The most important thing is to adhere to the following principles:

  • Maximum free layout. Nature does not tolerate any restrictions and barriers – and open and combined spaces and the absence of doors will help recreate this feeling of extreme lightness on the verge of nature. If you cannot do without zoning, choose sliding glass partitions and charming Japanese folding screens.
  • Natural tones. The ideal palette for Eco is the one created by nature itself. Shades of earth, sand, vegetation, and water remain a must-have for designing and decorating such interiors.
  • Natural materials. Eco fans reject plastic and everything related to it. Wood, stone, glass, wicker, sisal, cotton, vegan leather, and organic linen create an incredibly harmonious and healthy atmosphere. Also, do not forget about living plants used to the maximum in all rooms in a similar style.
  • An unusual approach to lighting. The more light, the better for Eco. Simultaneously, the simplest lamps and hidden lighting systems are used for artificial lighting. Stylish and practical nuance – Phyto lamps are especially organic in a similar setting.

A new trend for Eco in 2024 is modern energy-saving technologies that create an individual microclimate. Ionizers, humidifiers, and smart home systems create a new generation of style.

Everyone knows what minimalism is. Many people find this concept very attractive. However, today, there are more and more owners of houses and apartments for whom the simplicity of lines and neutral tones seem boring and impersonal. Tired of one extreme, they rush to the other – this is how maximalism appeared, which is undeniably part of the trending interior design styles. The name of this style clearly implies the idea of “a lot of things” – however, “everything” is carefully thought out and selected with taste and imagination. The main principles of this trending interior design style are:

  • Minimum free space. Maximalism does not tolerate emptiness and allows itself to be surrounded by everything that pleases. Cushions on sofas, armchairs, chairs, banquets, accent tables, and mirrors combined with wall paintings are just some techniques to create a sense of presence.
  • Bright, saturated colors. The color rules this style – and in the most animated version. Juicy and clean tones of furniture and accessories and strong color accents against a light background make staying in such rooms a permanent holiday, especially when those are the trendiest colors of the season.
  • Creative wall decoration. Monochrome and smooth-painted walls are not for maximalism. Spectacular tones, patterned wallpapers, exclusive panels, mirrors, and bas-reliefs will avoid boredom and create an exceptional rhythm.
  • Spectacular furniture. The furnishings in this style combine physical and visual hedonism. Large, bright, ornate yet plush, and incredibly comfortable armchairs, sofas, banquets, and poufs go well with carved dining tables and quirky accent glass tables.
  • Eclectic decor. There are simply no restrictions on the selection of decorative elements. Carpets, curtains, beautiful pots for plants, figurines, photo frames – the more pleasant things in your field of vision, the better!

You should be aware that you need to be extremely careful with maximalism – if you are unsure that you can avoid visual overload and “clutter,” you should invite a designer. However, if you lack brightness, various shapes, and cute gizmos in the environment, you will be happy with this choice!


One of the most popular interior design styles is here to join the top in the new season as well. Traced to the Nordic countries and bearing what we crave most – comfort- this style remains one of our favorite design directions. Little do we know that the original Scandi style looked pretty different from how we see it now. It was mostly an adaptation to the Northern European countries’ climate. Yet, the design solutions developed up to our days into a sought-after approach for top-tier interior designs. These are the key features of a contemporary Scandinavian interior:

  • Simple layout. Scandi doesn’t allow clutter and show-stealing furnishing. Only decluttered surfaces, clean lines, and lots of free space work for the style that pays tribute to simple yet tasteful layout solutions.
  • Airy space. Combined functional areas, large windows with translucent or no window treatment, plenty of natural light, and light colors for the walls, ceiling, and flooring are must-haves for a Scandi-designed room.
  • Natural materials. Using what you have at hand was a core principle for the original Scandi style. Time has passed, and untreated wood, in its natural beauty, has stayed the same for true style devotees. Additionally, organic linen, leather, and soft fabrics are allowed. Metal and glass for accents also adhere to the Scandi principles.
  • Light colors. The harsh Nordic climate made people favor paint colors with a high light reflectance value. However, bolder variations have penetrated the palettes in the past few years, with black as a great addition to light-colored spaces for a more expressive effect.
  • Hygge effect. The Danish concept of enjoying the little things is the main pillar behind a Scandi-decorated space with extra-comfortable furniture, celebrating old-time furnishing with well-known pieces like the Egg and Swan chair. 


Japandi is one of the newest trendy interior design styles, combining the essential features of Japanese and Scandinavian design trends. The combination of laconicism and naturalness of the Scandinavian style and oriental craving for warm shades, harmony, and the absence of everything superfluous made it possible to formulate a style concept with the following principles:

  • Calm natural textures. First of all, these are wood, stone, concrete, and textiles. Minimal relief, gloss-free polish, and subtle gradations create an incredibly atmospheric space.
  • Functionality. In this regard, the Japanese style prevailed. Therefore, Japandi involves the minimum use of things when each is in its place and has a specific purpose.
  • Simple, precise lines and shapes. They can be straight, rounded, or angular, yet without unnecessary curves, curls, and zigzags.
  • Low furniture. Low chairs, poufs, sofas, armchairs, and tables open a new facet of comfort and a fresh look at home interiors.
  • Natural palette. Discreet shades as close to neutral and natural as possible create a welcoming and relaxing space.
  • A minimum of decor. The combination of two minimalistic directions implies an appropriate approach to decoration. The predominance of living plants and the use of no more than 3-4 items offer individuality to the setting.

Soft Industrial

The industrial style in the interior can be called the “brother” of such a popular trend today as Loft. It originated in the early 20th century and derived from the residential environment created in industrial buildings converted into apartments. While the original Industrial style may seem too harsh and not as welcome as we would want it to be, designers switch to what is known as Soft Industrial – the same raw surfaces, sharp edges, and metallic accents combined with soft textiles, curved lines, and new pops of color for a space that you can really live in and not only admire. Soft Industrial has distinctive features that give it a unique charm:

  • Accent on metal. Like in a loft, metal elements are mostly in demand in an Industrial-style setting. However, if Loft still gravitates more towards glass and wood, then there is much more iron, steel, tin, and aluminum in Soft Industrial – it is not for nothing that designers call Industrial an illusion of the industrial past.
  • Concrete rigor with a twist. Industrial and Loft share a love for rough brick and plaster. Still, the former uses concrete textures more often, with natural materials and imitations like large-format porcelain stoneware with this fashionable texture. To soften the rough surfaces, this style likes to cover them with paint, and warmer shades are held dear by the new version of Industrial. 
  • Almost neutral palette. In this regard, Industrial is often compared with the urban style, characterized by large cities’ color schemes, and this is a background gray color combined with smoky white, beige, and khaki. At the same time, bright accents are acceptable and warmly welcomed, making the space feel less unapproachable and more inviting.
  • Flexibility in terms of furniture. Classic and minimalist sofas, armchairs, and tables easily fit into the Industrial decoration – however, now, you can safely consider lush decor with comfortable upholstery, appealing colors, and a bit less roughness.
  • Rich textiles. Challenge the raw effect of exposed bricks, rough concrete, and eye-catching metals with soft textiles, such as rich-textured window treatment, soft cushions, extra-comfy blankets, and shag area rugs.

After considering all this, Industrial will not seem too emasculated and uncomfortable. Simultaneously, the decor peculiar to the original Industrial, including various installations, fragments of signs and billboards, graffiti, street-style lamps, and many hand-made things, will create a stylish interior with a unique personality.

Mid-Century Modern

You will encounter this term more than once in the new design season since this trendy interior design style of the 20th century is reaching impressive heights. The design solutions that developed during the middle years of the last century reveal such conceptual values as simplicity, comfort, enjoying the small things, cheerful spots of color, and hope for the best, which is more than relevant in today’s busy world. How do you put them together? Follow the core principles of the Mid-Century Modern style:

  • Free space. As large windows as possible, a convenient layout, open floor plans, lots of natural light, and panoramic views make the style appeal to those who appreciate the freedom to move and explore while being close to nature.
  • Combined materials. Mid-Century Modern interiors’ visual and mostly on-touch appeal relies on the simultaneous use of contemporary materials, such as vinyl and plexiglass, with natural textures, leading to unexpected results.
  • Cheerful palettes. In the same way, people tried to bring color to their lives in the post-war era in the 20th century with bright shades, the bold pops of color are as welcome in the contemporary world when homeowners would benefit from a few splashes of hope when they return home.
  • Clear shapes. To increase the visually pleasing appearance of a space decorated in this style, clean lines, and well-defined silhouettes, favoring geometric forms particularly, are recommended, which are a great asset in ensuring the much-desired sense of comfort.

New Mediterranean

On the opposite side of the Scandinavian style, rooted in the Nordic countries’ traditions, the Mediterranean style promotes the warmth and slightly exotic beauty of a Spanish villa or a Greek vacation house. The exciting part is that people from northern countries would be the ones to choose this trending design style for the tiniest feel of breezy warmth in their home, besides the true representatives of the style located in the Mediterranean zone. For a complete interpretation of a Provence villa or Greek terrace environment, follow the main Mediterranean-style characteristics:

  • Earthy colors. Terracotta and warm earthy shades in combination with lighter colors are the formula for a perfect Mediterranean background on which the prominent features of the style will stand out organically.
  • Natural finishes. Explore texture fully while recreating this coastal style with a twist, revealed through richly-grained plastered walls.
  • Local materials. By local, we mean Mediterranean textures, such as olive wood, clay, and organic linen, which reveal the natural beauty of those surroundings bathed in sunlight and refreshed with the cool sea breeze.
  • Mosaic tiles with Mediterranean motifs. The engaging tiles with eye-catching patterns and joyful colors render the essence of those summertime destinations we all rush to for relaxation that happily lend their cheerful and traditional patterns to be integrated at home as well, even if the home is thousands of miles away.
  • Tradition-inspired decor. Starting with the peculiar-to-the-region plants and reaching the original ceramic tableware with rich patterns, a Mediterranean interior doesn’t look complete without those defining details.


The opposite of modern and contemporary, Rustic is an organic, natural, and sometimes distressed design style that celebrates the beauty of nature in its authentic style on the list of the most voguish interior design styles. Moreover, Rustic should feel approachable and welcoming, decorated with a traditional color palette that invites you in and muted accents that help you relax. A remote cabin in the woods or a charming farmhouse can also be safely decorated with rustic details. Then, what makes Rustic stand out? Let’s find out!

  • Muted color palette. Rustic is all in for neutral yet natural colors like white, cream, brown, and gray.
  • Natural wood. Don’t dare use fake wood in a Rustic-designed home. Only organic texture is acceptable. Yet, consider weathered wood as well. Rustic thrives in imperfection.
  • More texture. Don’t expect sheen in a Rustic design. Opt instead for as much textured finish as possible. The irreplaceable wood surfaces perfectly pair with stone or jute.
  • Artisanal decor. Avoid furniture and accents that look “like the others” and opt for handmade pieces that render a unique character.
  • Material over design. Rustic focuses on organic materials and natural textures rather than on a beautiful design. The beauty is in the texture itself.
  • Wooden beams. By no means replace the existing wooden beams with something more modern, especially when those have a natural worn-out effect.

By the way, you can also consider Modern Rustic, which adapts the traditional cabin style to contemporary standards unless you enjoy the authentic cottage vibe as if you’re indeed in the woods.

English Country

More Americans are embracing the new cottagecore aesthetics, and English Country is taking the lead. According to designers, this is one of the most outstanding and trendiest interior design styles in 2024. It has no rules, and comfort is its core principle. How do we achieve this calm and comforting trendy design style this season? Read on!

  • Mix new with old. Antique pieces are paired with modern units of furniture or decor in a cohesively designed space.
  • Adaptation. As already mentioned, there are no rules. New pieces are added over time, leading to authentic combinations in the same room that feel inviting.
  • Lavish upholstery. Be it a sofa or accent chair, it cannot go in an English Country-style home without rich upholstery.
  • Weathered effect. Furniture and accessories that have passed the test of time aren’t renovated or replaced. Their worn-out effect is exactly what an English cottage is known for.
  • Handmade details. Cushions decorated with needlework or an elegant trim for the lampshade will do.
  • Collected decor. The true beauty of English Country is the collection of accessories you gather over time and use to personalize the space, such as plenty of displayed books, photographs, or wall art.

French Country

The countryside aesthetics is a true love for devotees of a calm and remote life far from the city hustle. Moreover, you don’t necessarily have to live in the French countryside to feel its charm. Today, interior design solutions offer lots of possibilities. Recreate the inviting combination of rustic and elegant, and experience the provincial lifestyle even in your urban abode. Follow the primary principles:

  • Natural materials. An abundance of natural surfaces stands at the basis of this gorgeous and trendy interior design style, such as wooden beams, wooden or stone flooring, and exposed stone or brick.
  • Warm colors. Give preference to welcoming yet soft yellows, pinks, blues, and creams simultaneously with accent clay features that remind us of the French countryside’s natural landscape.
  • Toile de Jouy. The beloved print in the French Country style used on wallpaper and textiles is a prominent representative of the style. Interestingly, this traditional one-tone landscape print on a light backdrop perfectly pairs with other patterns, such as stripes, checkerboards, or florals.
  • Weathered furniture. French Country stands out with elegant wooden pieces with a worn-out effect and carved features.
  • Comfy seats. You’ll always see cozy upholstered sofas and accent chairs accompanied by elegant cushions in provincial interiors.
  • Vintage accessories. Accents that seem to have passed the test of time are welcome in such interiors. Think of vintage candlesticks in the living room, chandeliers in the dining area, weathered vases in the hallway, and retro table lamps in the bedroom.

Note that Provence slightly differs from French Country. The former features a more elegant French countryside design with a more formal touch on furniture and decor. Experts regard it as an affordable reinterpretation of the luxury Rococo style.  


The mix of Scandi and California styles will be all the rage this season. Still, what makes it different from other styles? As experts state, if you love Scandinavian but want to add an unusual twist, you’ll surely rediscover yourself in Scandifornian, one of the trendy design styles that focuses on airy and light spaces. Although the improvised design style is one of the newest on the list, it is confidently gaining popularity. Aiming to create a calm space, this design style combines Scandi, Mid-Century Modern, Industrial, and Boho all together. These are the key elements:

  • Light walls. Preferably white, these light walls are an immaculate canvas for furniture and accents.
  • Light wood flooring. Since Scandi is a fan of blonde wood, don’t hesitate to stick to this rule regarding floor covering.
  • Organic materials. Integrate as much natural texture as possible, from wooden chairs and tables to upholstered seats, richly-grained textiles, and live greeneries, such as cacti, since it is Californian as well.
  • Mid-Century Modern furniture. The Scandifornian style loves furniture inspired by the middle of the last century. Even more, try Vintage units as well. Yet, everything should look simple and unsophisticated.
  • Natural source of light. The larger the windows, the better. Scandifornian is a fan of natural light, which ensures the desired airy effect.
  • Contrasting color palette. This relatively new design style likes experimenting with warm color accents on a neutral background. We start with white and use feature shades of gray, beige, brown, green, yellow, and even orange.


Boho is a free-spirit style that combines color, texture, and pattern in a way no other style can. Highly eclectic and part of the trending interior design styles, Boho appeals to those who want to add a personal touch to their homes. We all know how important originality is in contemporary design. Undoubtedly, Boho will continue to be all the rage in 2024 as well. How do you achieve this stylish look? Read on!

  • Mixing styles. One of the defining features of Boho is pairing elements from various design styles, such as a modern sofa with a handmade macrame on the wall in the company of a Moroccan rug, a Mid-Century Modern side table, and exotic wallpaper, all in the same room.
  • Stay bold. Boho loves bright colors and catchy patterns. There are no rules. You’ll often see rich greens, reds, and purples alongside stripes and medallions in pattern.
  • Unique rugs. High-pile rugs are a must. Get inspired by various cultures and bring in as much color and pattern as possible.
  • Interesting decor. Story-telling pieces like books or art from places you traveled to are great conversation starters.
  • Handmade and natural. Boho cannot go without artisanal pieces made of natural materials that add authenticity to any space.
  • Indoor greeneries. Boho is a huge fan of botanical motifs. Without indoor plants, Boho would look flat and incomplete. Reconnect with nature and uplift the mood with live greenery in your Boho interior.

Although we haven’t tackled the entire range of trendy interior design styles that look appropriate for the new season, our list of the top design styles comprises the trendiest directions. The Eco-style responds to the urgent need to rethink our lifestyles and respect nature. The all-time Scandi stands undisturbed on its pedestal and continues to grow its number of connoisseurs, and not without reason when it offers the most comfortable approach to any design solution, followed by Scandifornian and Japandi. 

Maximalism firmly replaces the simple layouts and neutral schemes, encouraging self-expression. Soft Industrial gives Industrial another chance to stand out and be closer to what people want to feel and see in the place they call home. Mid-Century Modern is a go-to and versatile style you won’t regret, and the Mediterranean passes the threshold as a brand-new style some of us have probably never thought of falling in love with, but here we are. Next, cottagecore-aesthetic styles like Rustic, English Country, and French Country follow suit. Not least, Boho allows us to express our perspective on design through a personal choice of color and pattern. Which one feels closer to your lifestyle?
