Interior design trends and fashion trends don’t always intersect. Sometimes, they even contradict each other. Take the mid-2010s: while Alessandro Michele’s maximalist Gucci and Demna’s radically oversized silhouettes at Balenciaga flew off the shelves, the very rooms they hung in were swathed in calm earthy creams and browns. And while street style and athleisure made our closets more casual, classic farmhouse style and mid-century modern reigned supreme in our living spaces.

Yet, in 2024, the worlds of interior design and fashion are more intertwined than ever. When Vogue asked 16 of the world’s best decorators what interior design trends they were seeing in the homes of their au courant clients, one off-the-runway term kept coming up: quiet luxury. “The trend sparked by the TV show Succession and an overdose of blingy luxury will continue infiltrating home design,” designer Timothy Corrigan tells Vogue. “It’s not surprising that sophisticated brands like Hermès have continued to do well, while some of the flashier luxury brands have suffered a bit of late.” 

How does quiet luxury manifest itself in our homes, exactly? “In the same way a ‘quiet luxury’ wardrobe is assembled, within design, there will be a continued emphasis on classic, investment pieces that you can build a room around,” says Jake Arnold, whose clients include Chrissy Teigen and Katy Perry. Think dark woods, luxurious soft textures, and traditionally shaped furniture that can evolve through the decades with re-upholstery. Meanwhile, Instagram-ready rooms with their loud statement couches and neon signs are going out the door, so to speak. “We’ve all had it with stage set interiors, with wafer-thin bricks and uncomfortable furniture designed to look good only in an image,” says Vicky Charles of Charles & Co.

Meanwhile, as celebrities like Meghan Markle and Jennifer Lawrence embrace “latte dressing,” “latte decorating” is poised to become popular too: “Fashion has already embraced it—now we will see it in interiors from lacquered walls to velvet drapery to heavy textured linen sofas,” Martyn Lawrence Bullard says of the rich brown hue. (The cherry red seen on sweaters everywhere this winter may see a surge within our domestic spaces as well: “Red dominated the fashion scene in 2023, and I see that spilling over into interiors,” says Joy Moyler. “I’m ready for it.”)

What’s falling by the wayside? It seems the ivory boucle trend has hit its saturation point, as have fake fur throws. We can also wave goodbye to fast furniture—unsurprising given that more often than not, it just ends up discarded on a curb. Yet, perhaps Jeremiah Brent best sums up the biggest design mistake one can make: ignoring your taste for what you think should be your taste. “When design is personalized, it’s timeless,” he says. “Interiors are about your story, how you live, and what you love. My home is a myriad of phases and references I’ve fallen in love with at different times.”

Below, the top interior design trends to know in 2024—as well as what’s on its way out.

What’s In

Quiet Luxury

This is a forever tenet for our studio, but in the same way a “quiet luxury” wardrobe is assembled, within design, there will be a continued emphasis on classic, investment pieces that you can build a room around. Pieces that are timeless, in classic shapes and silhouettes that can have many lives and evolve through reupholstery —Jake Arnold

The trend sparked by the TV show Succession and an overdose of blingy luxury streetwear will continue infiltrating home design. Luxurious, soft, textured fabrics, warm rich woods, and quieter patterns for large furniture will reign supreme. It’s not surprising that sophisticated brands like Hermès have continued to do well, while some of the flashier luxury brands have suffered a bit of late. –Timothy Corrigan


Tone-on-tone decor—there’s something so elevated and fun about layering a single hue within a space. There, texture, silhouette, and material can be emphasized. –Jeremiah Brent

We’re seeing traditions being reimagined in myriad ways to create spaces with identity and personality. It’s the confidence to master the mix of a bold color like yellow, with traditional forms, textures, and dark woods. –Robin Standefer, Roman and Williams

Marble Accessories

The final trend I’m loving currently is the use of stone or marble furniture and accessories. Whether it’s a marble coaster or tray—or even an entire coffee table like our Sur Coffee Table—I think going beyond what’s expected in terms of material will really give your home personality. –Jenni Kayne

Dark Wood-Paneled Walls

We’re seeing a revival of dark wood-paneled walls to create warmth and coziness. It is a typology that instantly takes you from traditional to modern. We paired the wood paneling in the library at Estelle Manor, a hotel we designed in a historic manor house that opened in the Cotswolds earlier this year, with modern furniture. You don’t have to be the richest person in the world to create the look–you can use faux bois–painted to look like wood–or even wood veneer wallpaper. –Robin Standefer

Local Makers and Design

My favorite interiors are those that connect me to the place I’m in. Often this is through local craft and materials. When you’re drawing on the local vernacular, you’re drawing on centuries of experience of what works in that particular area, and it’s reflected in the materials. Reclaimed floors will never be wrong, along with respecting heritage architecture and the hand of the maker in the work. –Vicky Charles

Mixing Textures

I am loving how people are playing more with varied textures throughout their home. For example, plaster walls mixed with wood floors or ceilings. It’s such an effortless way to bring dimension to a space. –Jenni Kayne, Jenni Kayne Home

Silver Accents

We think silver will lead next year—it is powerful, timeless, and versatile, and tows the line between traditional and modern. –Robin Standefer

One-of-a-Kind Pieces

Embracing the artisan—there’s been such a movement in celebrating handmade and one-of-a-kind pieces. Pottery, dishware, and art add such a bespoke feel... I call these pieces “the last layer” when we’re accessorizing a new space. –Jeremiah Brent

One-of-a-kind anything. I love to incorporate a piece of artwork my children did when in grade school. –Kathryn M. Ireland


Embracing the art of the collection and curating “stuff” within the home. I collect lots of different things: I have a selection of twelve small 19th-century landscape paintings, a grouping of Italian flags of nobility, capriccios, and floral still lifes at my home in West Sussex. A home is made when it is filled with things that have meaning to you. –Martin Brudnizki

The auction rooms are becoming the new design centers. Now the dealers are side by side with the general public as the auction house has become a very fashionable place to shop, and that will increase enormously in 2024. People want an unusual find, with a storied past and provenance, that an auction house provides, along with the amazing bonus of sustainability that vintage, antique, and second-hand furniture bring. –Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Futuristic Materials

Contemporary pieces and fixtures developed with innovative materials, like recycled plastics and fibers grown from fungi, will continue to break through the noise. –Kelly Wearstler

What’s Out

Instagram Design

Design copied from Instagram and Pinterest. There will be an emphasis on unique finds and curated spaces rather than replicating what you see from others online. –Jake Arnold

We’ve all had it with stage set interiors, with wafer-thin bricks and uncomfortable furniture designed to look good only in an image. Our clients are craving real places not just photo ready. There is a movement away from flawless. The emphasis is now on creating interiors that not only withstand daily life and connected to those who live there. –Vicky Charles

Ivory Boucle

Love the texture, but it’s time to bring some richness back with colors and patterns. –Heidi Caillier

It was so ubiquitous for a couple of years that it was inevitable that it would go out of fashion. –Timothy Corrigan

Boucle will be used less. Still a wonderful textural fabric, but other types will become more prevalent. –Brigitte Romanek

Fast Furniture

Clients want to invest in pieces they can keep forever, and there is a continued eye towards sustainability. –Heidi Caillier

No more cheap imitations and instead the designer piece that’s built to last as an investment vs. good for now and disposable. –Vicky Charles

Homeowners are growing weary of mass-produced furniture that quickly falls apart or looks generic and dated. –Timothy Corrigan

Fake Fur Throws

No more fake fur throws! Instead woven textures and knits... anything that shows the hands of the craftsman, always. –Vicky Charles

Wicker Lamps

For 18 months wicker lighting fixtures were being sold at every price point from high-end UK furniture maker, Soane, to mass marketers like Pottery Barn. They came and went. Goodbye. –Timothy Corrigan


Anything with a ruffle edge and skirted tables… all are so dated! –Kathryn M. Ireland


Bland uniformity and minimalism are out. –Robin Standefer

Neutral minimalism has about run its course. The palette isn’t what is necessarily going out of style, moreso its application. Layered implementations of neutrals make a confident design statement and tell a much bigger story. *–*Alfredo Paredes

2024 is the year to banish sterile environments and embrace things that really reflect you and your loves. –Martin Brudnizki

Ultra minimalist interiors—bring some soul in! Warm the space up, and create a happy medium
between minimalism and maximalist spaces. Balance is good. –Joy Moyler

Mid-Century Modern Angular Furniture

We’re seeing the absolute death of angular mid-century-looking pieces. –Timothy Corrigan

All-White Kitchens

The all-white cabinetry kitchen is giving way to color—every shade of green is very strong, along with pastel shades and bold blues. 2024 will see more color, more adventurous choices, and bolder kitchens that feel more like living rooms than kitchens. –Martyn Lawrence Bullard
