2024 Luxury Home Design Trends

Luxury home design is constantly evolving, and in 2024, the trends are all about color, functionality, and creating spaces that resonate with your lifestyle. To delve into the latest in luxury interior design, @properties caught up with Katy Evans, the visionary behind Katy Evans Design, based in North Shore. Here’s what she had to say:

  1. A Revival of Color and Texture: While neutral tones remain a staple for luxury homes, clients are now embracing vibrant colors, bold patterns on wallpapers, and sumptuously textured fabrics to infuse depth and personality into their spaces. According to Evans, there’s a newfound appetite for expressive choices in home design.
  2. Wallpapers Beyond Walls: Wallpaper isn’t confined to living rooms anymore. Evans reveals that unique wallpaper patterns are now finding their way into every nook of the house – from bathrooms to dining rooms and even mudrooms. It’s an effortless way to elevate any space from mundane to extraordinary.
  3. Personalization with Vibrant Appliances: Homeowners are stepping up their game by introducing brightly colored appliances into their kitchens, adding a personalized touch without a major overhaul. Evans sees this trend as an opportunity for homeowners to infuse their unique personalities into their living spaces, making each kitchen distinctively theirs.
  4. Quartzite: The New Kitchen Standard: Quartz is gaining traction as a luxurious alternative to marble in high-end kitchens, notes Evans. Its aesthetic appeal akin to marble, coupled with remarkable durability and functionality, is making it a preferred choice for clients seeking opulence without the exorbitant price tag.
  5. The Modern Resurgence of Brass: Brass fixtures, especially antique and unlacquered varieties, are making a stylish comeback. This resurgence reflects a broader design ethos of blending vintage elements with contemporary aesthetics to craft timeless spaces.
  6. Children’s Rooms: Growing with Time: Children’s rooms are evolving to accommodate a child’s growth. Evans emphasizes the importance of functionality and timelessness over fleeting trends. Opting for a neutral color palette and versatile furniture ensures the room can adapt as the child matures, allowing for easy decor updates without a complete overhaul.
  7. The Transformation of Living Spaces: Formal living rooms are giving way to multifunctional spaces designed for socializing and relaxation. Evans highlights the inclusion of features like bars and lounge areas to cater to a more laid-back lifestyle, where entertaining at home takes center stage.
  8. Customized Window Treatments: Evans stresses the transformative power of custom window treatments. This year, trends lean towards calming, serene colors, embracing natural, muted tones and soft neutrals. Tailoring window treatments to suit the space’s style and dimensions enhances its overall aesthetic and ambiance, making it a worthwhile investment.

In the realm of luxury interior design, 2024 is all about embracing color, functionality, and personalization to create spaces that feel uniquely yours.
