Interior Design Decorating Trends 2024

Interior design decorating trends 2024 predictions differ from one interior designer-decorator-decorista to the next.

As for the formula I use I take into account various predictions, conduct a quick retrospect of the previous year’s hits and misses, factor in personal taste preferences, and suggest accordingly.


Interior design and decorating rules aside, I study at the what works in your home is what appeals to your personal style school of thought.

With that in mind, let’s take a look at a sampling of Interior Design Decorating Trends 2024.

Table Lamps

Lighting is relevant to the feel you want the space to convey, and the trend toward table lamps flips the style switch to focal point fabulous in both the on and off position.

Although not formally on the 2024 trend radar, antique pieces continue to find a top spot on the Places In The Home interior design and decorating hit list and with good reason.

Antique pieces play the room in house to home harmony to influence, balance, and complement other design styles resulting in a space enveloped in personality.

Timeless in presence and provenance, antique pieces lend a quality to most design styles as a lone focal point accent or anchor style of the space.

Provenance tells the story of premier craftmanship and sustainability while finishes and details create visual interest.

October Observations

October observations run the gamut from events to design to decor and just about everything else fallapalooza in-between.

Halloween is definitely October happening numero uno.  Man, has this
31st of October event become a celebration powerhouse.

October observations

Anticipated Halloween spending according to the National Retail Federation is estimated to reach $10.6 billion in 2022, breaking last year’s record of $10.1 billion. Approximately 68% of consumers plan to participate in some sort of Halloween celebration, up from 65% last year, 58% in 2020 and 69% in 2019.

That’s a lot of spirited spending, folks.


Candy corn.



What say you?

Psst! I like the stuff.

Neighbors are precious friends-friends who come to call with skill saw, molding, primer and woodworking talent to save the day.

Vacation escapes and fall into holiday tablescapes pique my October observations interest.

Natural elements set a stunning table and the tone for a lovely drive.

Peak color season getaways feed the heart and soul while gifting the eye a colorama as only nature can do.


It won’t be long before the honking sounds and sights of Canada geese heading south for the winter will be in our area.

Last year for about 8 nights in a row around 7:15 p.m. cst the show began much to my delight.

They fly so low you can really get a good visual, and of course, you hear them before you see them.

In honor of this October tradition, I’m purchasing a set of these Spode Snow Geese dinner plates.

Pinterest Home Trends: Too Much of A Good Thing?

Bandwagons can get awfully crowded.  I proceed with caution before jumping on most bandwagons, carefully picking and choosing the ones to get on board with.

Some would categorize Pinterest as bandwagon central. If Pinterest is a bandwagon, then I say giddy-up!

Pinterest is the ultimate virtual photo album, an all-in-one place where you can find everything from free fonts to fondue recipes to fabulous home trends. I use it as a visual catalog look book and client presentation tool as well as a vehicle for gleaning ideas from other decoristas.  

Beauty is in the pin of the beholder.


Kenton Overland Circus Band Wagon

Fascinated by the power of the trend and the role that pinning it plays in the spread of its popularity, Pinterest reminds me of the Fabergé Organics shampoo ad campaign with the and they told two friends, and they told two friends, and so on, and so on line.


Overdoing leads to fading fads and diminished trends.

Take the Mason jar.


Let the record show I love these jars, but fully understand the too much of a good thing point.


Now is the time has come for a keyboard confessional.

Painted everything is the please put down the paint brush and step away from the whatever piece one is painting trend I love to hate.

There, I typed it, and no, it is no mistake I’m emphasizing the word everything.  

Pinterest is peppered with painted everything projects- some gorgeous and some not so gorgeous.  As far as calling out the not so gorgeous, I believe it is best to apply the Thumperian principle to mouth and keyboard.

If you can’t say, type, post or link something nice,
don’t say, type post or link anything at all.

Admittedly,  a well applied coat of paint on an inexpensive piece of junk mass produced furniture that isn’t all that to begin with in the first place can’t hurt the look.

Even better is an applied coat of paint in a designer color(s) on a home furnishing with good bone structure can render a piece thoroughly modern magnificent.

Feast your eyes upon this stunning French Provincial dresser finished in a French blue color by Cindy at Edith & Evelyn.



Do I think the painted everything is on the way out? Pinterest popularity suggests the answer is no.

Is painted everything a Pinterest home trend that is here to stay, or one with an expiration date marked sooner than later?

Time and trend will tell.
