The Modern Farmhouse Aesthetic
While this design style has been in vogue these past few years, it appears to be running out of steam. Shiplap clad walls (wood planks of various dimensions), barn wood doors, open shelving in the kitchen are all decor features that seem to have vanished from the pages of interior decorating magazines and blogs. If you adore this cozy and nostalgic ambiance, you might like to integrate elements of the English cottage style (fashionable this year!), such as bookshelves filled with tomes and floral-patterned textiles. This way you won’t have to start from scratch!
Black Plumbing Fixtures and Accessories
Have you succumbed to the charm of jet-coloured bathroom fittings, to the point of having changed your kitchen and bathroom cabinet knobs and other accessories to match? What we are seeing for 2024 is the use of a mix of metals. The easiest solution is to swap out some of the black components for chrome or brass.
Open Concept Rooms
Open concept and multi-purpose rooms have dominated house layouts these past decades but are now gradually being abandoned. People are falling back in love with well-defined spaces and rediscovering their appreciation for the privacy they provide to the occupants. Some homeowners are going so far as to re-erect walls they had previously removed. If this isn’t an option for you, employ furniture to delineate zones and try to re-establish a degree of intimacy with temporary partitions, like bookshelves.
