If you’re looking to revamp your home in 2024, there are endless design trends to draw inspiration from. To help you narrow down the right one for you, IKEA has curated four emerging interior design styles that the furniture and home goods company feels are here to stay. For each style—warm minimalism, Swedish roots, modern playfulness, and Scandinavian folklore—IKEA’s guide provides design inspiration and tips to help you recreate the looks in your own home.
Highlighting clean lines, geometric patterns, and natural materials, warm minimalism balances bold statements with simplicity. It makes use of warm neutral colors, like muted blues, browns, and hints of pink to create a welcoming environment. For a layer of boldness, consider mixing textures by combining colored glass, velvet, corduroy, woven textures, metal, and wood.
This home style is inspired by Swedish lifestyle and focuses on simple design solutions and ways to gather in comfort both indoors and outdoors. To recreate the aesthetic in your own home, focus on natural tones and blonde woods, as well as primary colors, which create a welcoming, casual space great for spending time with family and friends.
If you love color, modern playfulness is the home design style for you. It combines bright colors and high intensity pastels with more muted, neutral tones for an aesthetic that is both exciting and grounded. Get experimental with the trend by mixing metals and soft textiles, warm woods and cool plastics, and clean lines with organic shapes.
Scandinavian design isn’t going anywhere, according to IKEA. This home style is inspired by life in rural Sweden at the turn of the 20th century. Traditional Scandinavian style evokes a warm and welcoming feeling through rustic furniture and décor and accessories that embrace natural materials and tones.
