Which trends will we get to know, and which ones will we say goodbye to?
In the decoration of the premises, we continue to follow the course of ecological design, adding a touch of cheerfulness and uniqueness. How to do it? Now let’s tell.
If you believe that the interior should enhance your mood and reflect your personality, it is worth exploring this trend further. The decor dopamine trend is characterized by its colourful, cheerful, and individualistic nature. Having a home that aligns with your perception of beauty can have a positive impact on your psychological and emotional well-being. When you genuinely enjoy your interior, it can help calm your nervous system and even stimulate the production of feel-good hormones.
It is no wonder that this trend is expected to dominate the interior design scene in 2024. To implement this trend, the key element is incorporating vibrant colours such as yellow, orange, and pink, which bring joy and energy. Patterns and prints like zigzags, dots, and animal motifs are also suitable. Additionally, surrounding yourself with inspiring items that have their own stories, such as paintings, photos, plants, or handmade pottery, can further enhance the “happy” atmosphere in your space.
The interior design trends of 2024 focus on fostering a love for nature and promoting care for the environment in all its forms. These trends aim to create spaces that highlight the connection between people and their surroundings.
One way this is achieved is through the careful selection of materials, such as wood, stone, vines, and cork.
In particular, stone carpets are becoming increasingly popular for both indoor and outdoor decoration. These carpets are crafted using natural stone chips, providing a unique texture and enhancing the overall aesthetic. Furthermore, they offer exceptional durability, withstanding damage, temperature fluctuations, and humidity changes. The seamless surface of these carpets is easy to maintain, and the textured finish ensures an anti-slip effect for added safety.
Where to apply?
• Residential premises;
• Baths and toilets;
• Balconies, loggias and terraces;
• Pedestrian areas and garden paths;
• Areas around pools, etc.
Wood is a widely favored material in interior design, with both solid and veneered elements being popular choices. Furniture panels, plywood, and other wood-based materials are also commonly used. In an effort to promote sustainability, recycled raw materials are often utilized for repair work and furniture production. Notably, the BRAVO LONDON range offers Saviola chipboards that are entirely made from recycled materials. These eco-friendly boards possess excellent characteristics and realistic textures resembling wood, stone, textiles, and more.
When it comes to arranging a home, there is a trend of blurring the boundaries between the interior and exterior spaces. This effect is achieved through the incorporation of large windows, indoor plants, and an abundance of natural light within the room.
Furniture trends are inspired by nature and functionality. Actual natural and processed materials, natural shades, as well as the most practical things. Let’s take a closer look at these trends.
Materials and forms
Natural wood adds warmth and comfort to the interior. At BRAVO LONDON, we create facades, table tops, furniture supports, decorative cornices and other individual products, working both with wood and with other materials (liquid metal, leather, fabric, etc.). Our own brand offers a variety of stone products: ceramic granite, quartzite, acrylic. Table tops, sinks, facades, etc. are given natural decorations and surface textures. A luxurious look.
Metal structures are gaining more and more popularity : racks and shelves, tables, furniture supports. Thanks to the durable material, they will last for many years. In addition, metal is perfectly combined with wood and wooden plates, stone, mirror and glass. By the way, textured glass, especially corrugated, has been a hit in recent years. This is one of the variations of trendy “striped” surfaces.
Furniture trends strive for organic forms – rounded, curved, smooth. Soft edges of objects create a special, cozy atmosphere. Large sofas and armchairs for two will be popular, where you can comfortably relax while watching a movie or reading.
Everything should be useful, and the more functions it has, the better. What is it about? Here are some examples:
• A kitchen island can combine working and dining areas;
• A sofa-bed will instantly turn a living room or office into a guest bedroom;
• An overlay table or a side table will turn the sofa into a relaxation zone with coffee and goodies;
• The adjustable table frame will allow you to adjust its height for all family members – adults and children;
• In the evening, the home office will become a play area or a place for reading.
Innovative interior design encompasses various forms of technology, including energy-efficient appliances, well-designed lighting setups, and the use of non-toxic materials and paints. Furniture is also becoming smarter, with features such as built-in USB ports in cabinets for charging phones and other devices. Kitchen countertops now come with integrated sockets and even hoods. Beds equipped with sensors collect data on your vital signs like pulse, pressure, and breathing, creating optimal sleep conditions.
Smart home systems are gaining popularity, taking care of safety, creating a comfortable microclimate, and adjusting lighting. Motion sensors control lights, while air quality sensors automatically open windows for ventilation. The emergence of Internet of Things networks allows home devices to exchange data, simplifying our lives. For instance, washing machines and dishwashers can be started remotely, and refrigerators can manage shopping lists.
When it comes to colours, textures, and style directions, the current trends include a focus on restored vintage furniture or incorporating individual vintage elements, which is an eco-friendly solution.
Ecological and recycled materials are also commonly used in handmade products like vases, candlesticks, and flower pots.
Focus on textures
The popularity of textured surfaces is evident in current furniture trends. This can be observed in the latest collections of chipboard decors, which feature rough stone, embossed wood, linen, and even the texture of a knitted sweater. Textures are not limited to furniture alone, as walls, ceilings, and other surfaces also embrace this trend.
Decorative techniques such as Venetian plaster, lime plastering, textured wallpaper, coloured microcement, and corrugated wall panels are utilized to add texture to various surfaces.
Since the interior is a space where we spend a significant amount of time, it undeniably influences our emotions.
Therefore, we desire it to be as comfortable and personalized as possible. Whether you choose to follow current trends or create something entirely new, the most important aspect is to do what you genuinely enjoy!
