SILVER ACCENTS

In 2024, we will see stainless steel, aluminium, nickel and chrome emerge as one of the top interior design trends, captivating homeowners and designers alike with their timeless elegance and versatility. This year we saw silver take over the fashion world, next year it comes to interior design. Silver, with its cool metallic sheen, effortlessly complements various colour schemes and design styles, adding a touch of sophistication to any space.


Whether incorporated through sleek silver hardware, reflective surfaces, or metallic textiles, these accents bring a modern and luxe aesthetic to interiors. Subtle silver detailing can transform a room, creating a sense of refinement and contemporary allure.


We will be noticing a new spin on these timeless materials, as we incorporate more softened and curved organic shapes in the form of vases, side tables and lamps, creating a soft detailed accent rather than taking over the whole interior.

BIOLIPHIC DESIGN

As you may have seen in our ‘Autumn/Winter 2023 Trends’ blog post, biophilic design has been cropping up all over our feeds, however 2024 is where it truly takes centre stage. With the ever-increasing demand for sustainability, interior design has seen many changes to welcome this inniative. Bioliphic design highlights a connection with nature and awakens a sense of responsibility towards the environment.\xa0We’re doing our part at Tobias Oliver Interiors having already planted over 11,000 trees and offset 20 tonnes of Co2 emissions.


The key to connect bioliphic design and sustainability is when it comes to sourcing your materials and furniture pieces. Prioritising recycled materials, energy-efficient solutions, as well as low VOC paints is only some of the ways we can think more sustainably when it comes to designing and curating our spaces. A sustainable material we love to use at TOI is the bamboo silk carpet, which is a fantastic renewable resource being very easy to grow, reaching up to 23 metres a year.


At its core, bioliphic design helps bring the outside in, so think lots of plants, big windows to increase natural light and organic elements, for example in the form of wood and stone. Not only is this approach a great way to help our planet but it also has many well-being benefits for a healthier and happier lifestyle.


A natural material that you will see a lot of in 2024 is rattan. This is according to interior designer Jonathan Adler, a favourite of ours at team TOI, having many of his amazing pieces in our online shop. This material is a beautiful way to add warmth and texture to our spaces. Whether in the form of intricately woven chairs, statement light fixtures, or decorative baskets, rattan seamlessly complements various design styles, from coastal and tropical to Scandinavian and eclectic. Embracing sustainability and organic beauty, rattan's resurgence signifies a shift towards environmentally conscious and stylish living.

PERSONALISED, CHARACTER-RICH INTERIORS

In 2024, personalised, character-rich interiors emerge as the leading trend, allowing individuals to curate spaces that uniquely reflect their identity and lifestyle. Gone are the days of cookie-cutter designs. Instead, homeowners are embracing the opportunity to infuse their living spaces with personal touches and distinctive elements. Vintage finds, artisanal craftsmanship, and personalised decor bring warmth and individuality to homes.\xa0

Creating personalised spaces doesn’t just mean sourcing unique vintage, old and new decorative items but can extend to bespoke furniture pieces, something that we are very familiar with at TOI and incorporate in all our projects, making sure every client feels that their new space is a direct reflection of who they are.

From custom furniture and bespoke decor to one-of-a-kind art pieces, this trend encourages a departure from mass-produced items in favour of handpicked, meaningful items that tell a story as well as encourage mindful consuming, in keeping with the step toward more sustainability. The result is a home that feels like a curated masterpiece, where every detail speaks to the occupant's taste and experience, with a focus on individuality and self-expression.

CURVES

In 2024, we’ll be departing from clean lines and sharp angles of previous styles and embrace the allure of curves to create visually captivating and inviting spaces. From irregularly shaped rugs that can create a focal point tying in the entire scheme, to organically shaped mirrors that add depth, intrigue and enlarge your space. These curvaceous elements bring a sense of softness and fluidity to interiors, signalling a move away from rigid design norms and ushering in an era where the organic and the aesthetic seamlessly intertwine to redefine the essence of contemporary living spaces. Apart from soft furnishings we will also see curvaceous furniture including cabinetry, round sofas and sweeping chaise lounges.

UNIQUE TILES

In 2024, the interior design landscape will see the allure of unique tiles, with Zellige tiles reigning supreme. Characterised by their handmade craftsmanship and vibrant, irregular glazes, Zellige tiles add an unmistakable touch of artistry to any space. These Moroccan-inspired tiles bring a sense of exoticism and timeless elegance, creating mesmerising mosaic patterns that captivate the eye. From kitchen backsplashes to bathroom walls, the versatility of Zellige tiles allows them to seamlessly integrate into various design styles, infusing spaces with a rich tapestry of colours and textures. Expect dramatic patterns, new compositions and unexpected layouts to our walls and floors.
