6 Living Room Trends That Will Dominate 2024 Decor

6 Living Room Trends That Will Dominate 2024 Decor


January 4th 2024

The arrival of the new year brings with it a feeling of boundless opportunities and an opportunity for a fresh start, which extends to revamping your home decor. Consider giving the central spaces in your home a makeover with a fresh coat of paint, new furniture, or a modern floor treatment.

While these changes may not transform your life, they will certainly elevate your style. To guide you in this venture, we've consulted design experts to discover the hottest trends in living room decor for 2024.

Excited to embark on this journey? Let's explore some of the insights shared by the experts that will shape the upcoming year.

1. Sage green

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. For Susan Hayward of the eponymous design firm, that palette skews toward earth tones.

“Beautiful sage green and deep terra cottas are a refreshing change from the grays we were seeing in 2023,” she explains.

Ariel Barrionuevo, the designer at La Coralina Island House, agrees, adding that plush sofas are best showcased when draped in earth tones, particularly olive green and warm taupe.

2. Checkers/Plaid

Think checks are old-fashioned or a little too country for most decor schemes? Jennifer Verruto, founder and CEO of Blythe Interiors, begs to differ, especially when they’re black and white.

“Checkers are here to stay in 2024 as the look is incredibly versatile and lends itself to both ultra transitional and elegant spaces, but also works well in funky, eclectic homes, too, ” she points out.

Try checks in your living room in a small way on a throw pillow or lampshade. Or go for a bigger statement by layering a checked rug underfoot or on top of a more neutral sisal floor covering.

3. Smaller spaces

If there was one practical thing to emerge from COVID-19-inspired home design, it was separate but cozy nooks. Of course, when it comes to new builds, the open floor plan—with living and dining rooms plus kitchen combined into one great room—will probably never leave us.

But within these large spaces, you can still try this hot trend by carving out a smaller area 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.

4. Mixed styles

In an effort to go green and buy less in general, the trend of combining pieces from different decades is right on the money for 2024. So yes—go ahead and put 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 Verruto.

One example she likes is a Victorian table lamp in a modern living room. Or consider a vintage sofa with a sleek glass coffee table.

Lindsey Zborowski, a hospitality design manager at Wayfair Professional, calls this trend “creative play.”

“It’s about leaning into different materials, colors, and patterns for energizing a space—and it includes lots of nostalgia and era mixing,” she adds.

5. Wallpaper everywhere

It seems that wallpaper 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.

Pamela O’Brien, principal designer at Pamela Hope Designs, confirms that love for every kind of paper is strong for 2024.

“I’m seeing continued interest in wallpaper, both in iconic, classic, and ornate designs, along with simple monochromatic patterns that feel hand-painted or sketched,” she reports.

O’Brien predicts she’ll be hanging paper for clients all over the house in the coming year, “and not just in the powder room—any room is fair game.”

6. Bugs (yes, insects!)

It might be hard to believe, but bugs are on the horizon in the new year, says Noel Fahden Briceño, vice president of merchandising at Charish.

“We’re predicting bug decor in a variety of mediums—not just in accessories—but in traditional wall hangings, tapestries, wallpaper, pillows, and even furniture upholstery,” she explains.

Try the look on your living room wall with a simple black-and-white drawing of a scarab beetle, or go for something a little more subtle, such as ladybugs printed on throw pillows or coasters.
