Here are the most significant interior design trends of 2024.
Go beyond giving just a design makeover to your space and pair them with Feng Shui solutions for potent results.


Color magic

Nature’s main color, the freshest of all is GREEN. Growth, rebirth, harmony, security, healing are the psychological associations of this color.

We will see lots of deep and muted greens, emerald, olive, chartreuse.

The color of calmness, reliability, sincerity, stability, creativity, BLUE is also favored. From sophisticated navy for a dramatic feel to watery aqua for a more spacious atmosphere.

Earth tones are huge. Shades of BROWN (mushroom, taupe, mocha, chocolate), greys (less than last year), mustard, yellow and golden shades, warm, creamy whites, rust, and muddy colors.

The choice of earth tones reflects our craving for stability, security, support, warmth, and comfort.

A shade of RED, anyone? Peaches, oranges, reds are alluring with their radiance. They convey vibrance, enthusiasm, confidence.

Shades of PINK have been increasingly popular as they emit playfulness and positivity. Choose these for rooms drenched in natural light, so you can enjoy more brightness.

Feng Shui tips:

Enhance the Wood element with green and blue for vitality and growth.

The Water element with dark blue for boosting the flow of energy/money/people, to have clarity, to express yourself better.

The Earth element with browns, to feel more grounded and balanced.

The Fire element with reds, for power, recognition, wealth, and to be able to deal with change.

Minimalism and Maximalism

Minimalism, where functionality and simplicity serve comfort and serenity, is still in. (But all-white and extremely minimalist are out.)

Visually stimulating Maximalism rules the 2024 interior design arena. Mix and match! Your interior becomes the artist’s (You) playground, where you can unleash your talent for décor and tell your personal story.

The space becomes vigorous with ornate details of 1800’s design elements and dark, moody (but cleaner) colors, like black, forest green, jewel tones creating sophistication or even drama.

Effortless comfort and relaxed extravagance talk to our Venusian side.

Feng Shui tips:

Maximalism is eclectic, not chaotic!

Refrain from accumulating clutter that drains your energy and causes stress.

Vintage and handmade

Scandinavian modernist landscapes, handcrafted Americana, minimalist geometric compositions, Pop Art. Collecting and showcasing these in your space is an important feature of Maximalism.

The imperfection of handcrafted pieces is refreshing, as the human touch is reaffirming. Quietly shining rebellion against mass-production in today’s world.

These unique works show personality and character.

The rule for 2024 is that the ambiance needs to stay contemporary.

Feng Shui tips:

“Mismatching” can bring loads of interior décor ideas. You can generate a cohesive look by:

  • Focusing on one era
  • Grouping patterns together
  • Choosing one or two materials
  • Picking same material objects from different eras
  • Choosing one color with one or two accent colors

Hardware shines

Door, window, and furniture hardware, bathroom accessories are significant parts of a visually appealing environment.

From modern minimalism to fingerprint recognition with a lot in between, the possibilities are endless to create visual fluidity even with the small details.

Recycled materials (wood and metal) in the name of sustainability, eye-catching shapes, textured surfaces, and customized solutions are emphasized.

Feng Shui tip:

Enhance the Metal element with metallic objects (gold, silver, copper, brass, iron, steel…) to boost communication, empower projects, improve planning.

Sustainability and bringing nature in

Sustainability is not a novelty or a trend anymore. It is a practical way of serving environmental consciousness and the well-being of all.

Natural materials, textures, patterns, and colors are easy to bring into any style of interior. They are vital to our health and well-being.

Locally made artisanal objects, recycled, and upcycled materials are key.

Can a piece of furniture be trendy and timeless? Absolutely!

Natural textures provide dimensions, make your home cozier and more intriguing.

Patterns of nature reduce stress, as they resonate with our psyche at the deepest level by recalling the sacredness of creation.

Natural colors, earth tones are serene and elegant in a casual way.

The super diverse color green vitalizes everything it touches. Dark green heals, emerald aligns the heart chakra, balances the nervous, digestive, and respiratory systems.

Feng Shui tips:

Surround yourself with lush plants to improve your mood, concentration, productivity.

The element of Wood represents vibrancy, nourishment, growth, longevity, expansion. Beside live plants, strengthen it with greens, columns, stripes.

Curves and scallops

Flowy furniture pieces and scalloped details (huge in 2024) soften or break up straight lines. Oozing the organic, the natural, bringing nurturing vibes, they are essential components of an inviting environment. As they are feminine design element, they should be balanced by masculine elements.

Feng Shui tip:

Undulating lines can enhance the Water element.

Texture(d) reinvented

Dynamic wallcoverings are in the spotlight this year.

Wallpaper can be geometric, striped, in frames, dramatic, with jungle motifs, wall-artsy or lace-like patterned. It can flow onto the ceiling, cover only one accent wall in a room, or surprise us in a previously forgotten nook.

Sculptures are mounted on the wall, make a statement as sculptural furniture, or whimsical accents.

Rugs can be the focal point in a room when they are artworks themselves. Companies have been experimenting with mixing wool and sustainable materials for eco-friendly choices.

Recycled fibers, hemp, rattan, bamboo, seagrass are featured.

Limewash, plaster, or Roman clay treatments energize walls.

The beauty of rough stone is highlighted in the form of stone sinks.

Terracotta tiles are back, elegant, charming as they blend with any style.

Lavish or playful? Bouclé, the classic Chanel piece of the interior might stay. The version with thicker pile looks more luxurious and adds depth.

Feng Shui tips:

Stones represent the Metal element.

Ceramics, tiles, brick can enhance the Earth element, for example in the center of your home, the Health area.

Lighting tuned up

To work as natural daylight, layering various types of light sources is of utmost importance. Lighting intensifies colors, materials, textures, provides illumination for works of art and décor. Aim to get the most of your experience in your abode.

The hottest trends include sculpture like chandeliers, lamps/light fixtures made in organic shapes from natural materials, high polish fixtures.

Feng Shui tip:

Enhancing the Fire element, ambient lighting plays a great role in designing a welcoming atmosphere.

Home office

Sprucing up your workspace at home is crucial, as home office is here to stay.

Get ergonomic furniture, make sure the space supports your needs, is inspiring, well-lit, and organized. Where you can be in the right mindset, focus, and accomplish your goals.

Feng Shui tips:

Turn your whole room/work area into a manifestation board.

Do not sit with your back to the door or in direct line with it.

Keep the windows unblocked.

Smart homes

Voice-activated commands, systems that adjust the environment based on our preferences, solar panels, energy efficiency, biophilic elements…

Greater comfort for us, less burden on the environment.

From technology to holistic care. The living space of the future is here now.

Feng Shui tip:

From time to time, you want to step away from AI-driven home management to have the grounding experience of switching the light on yourself, for instance in your bathroom, where you can relax, unwind, and enjoy some well-deserved spa time.


Together with the new interior trends, apply Feng Shui principles and elevate your home, so it can become the gorgeous, functional, supportive nest you deserve!
Balance the 5 Elements, align with the energies of nature, the universe, so you can have harmony and abundance in all areas of life.
