Podcast, Ep. 346: 2024 Trend Report

Guests and Hosts of How to Decorate, the Podcast

It’s all about upcoming trends this week as we forecast what will be “in” for 2024, and what things we are happy to leave behind in the past. We are joined by Will and Hillary, both part of the product design team at Ballard Designs, who are on the front lines of seeing all the upcoming trends in design.

We discuss the resurgence of classic colors navy blue, the growing interest in environmentally conscious design, and the emergence of new trends like celestial yellow and pink. We also chat about materials used in furniture making, with a focus on personalization and blurring the lines between indoor and outdoor living.

What You’ll Hear On This Episode:

  • Is beige no longer the go-to neutral?
  • The trend alert for finishes, wallpaper, patterns, trims, and color.
  • Will the explosion of soft colors carry over in 2024?
  • The trend of bringing nature indoors through plants, materials, and decor.
  • A few of our favorite “trendy” color patterns.
  • The use of natural materials like bamboo, wicker, and even mushroom leather helps expand our eco-friendly options.

  • What are some on-trend items that surprise us to the core?
  • A few of the trends we are over and feel are so oversaturated.
