Noteworthy Interior Design Trends for 2024

by Rebecca Brown, Design Studio Consultant

Ringing in the New Year means ringing in new design trends — or at least elevated ones. From stain tones and aesthetics to shapes and paint swatches, there’s no shortage of trending interior design ideas. Let’s take a look at what’s destined to take off in 2024.

Color Theory

This year, we’re seeing shifts in color palettes. It’s out with the cool grays and in with the deep browns, warm grays, and strong neutrals. Here’s what to know about the New Year’s color scheme.


Warm tones are coming in strong and making their way throughout the entire home. Whether in cabinetry stains or fabric choices, rich and inviting colors like chocolate brown are becoming a home showstopper.

More than white:

We’re seeing people stray away from the days of all-white cabinets. Along with deep tones on cabinetry, expect to see pops of muted colors like sage green or wedgewood blue featured on select cabinets like the kitchen island or in the mudroom. With the walls painted in neutral shades, this is a great way to give your living areas a little extra oomph.

Edgy and dramatic:

This year, we aren’t saving the drama strictly for the powder room. We’re exploring the trend in new ways by taking it into the rest of the home. Like the primary bedroom.

With this edgy trend, the color scheme is dark and brooding. Think charcoal and forest green on the walls. But to keep the space welcoming, it’s juxtaposed with lighter stain tones. You may even see a terracotta as a pop of contrasting color.

Be bold. Add a little dramatic flair to your home with color.

Moody and Organic

Using these color trends, you can achieve a moody and organic aesthetic. Adding simple, slightly enlarged tile in rectangular, hexagonal, or square shapes to backsplashes, shower walls or flooring creates an organic feeling. Playing with the orientation takes a familiar technique and makes it fresh and modern.

Additionally, leaning into the earthiness of certain colors — like greens and blues — and natural materials to bring that organic feeling throughout the home. Bamboo-textured tiles, neutral fabrics, and nature-focused decor complete the look.

Or even consider using decor to play with shape throughout your home. Organically shaped mirrors or geometric accent pieces are easy, low-commitment solutions.

Putting It Into Practice

The 2024 trends are all about taking risks by using these unique color schemes and alternating between light and airy design and dark and moody aesthetic.

Play with color choices. It isn’t all black and white. Remember, navy and forest green are both excellent choices for a rich yet fun color scheme. As long as the colors remain in the same shade family, that’s what keeps the home cohesive.

Don’t forget to add moments of relief in each room. For the brighter rooms, consider dark hardware, darker cabinet stains, or using darker neutrals in accent pillows strewn on furniture.

As for the darker areas, leave the ceilings white to visibly break up the color blocks. A pop of tan, white, or terracotta also serves as a moment of pause that lets the room breathe. Any natural light in these rooms will also create an inviting feeling.

Ready for a home to bring these trends to life? We’ll help you find the right fit for you.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
    Barb King
  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
