Top 5 Design Trends for 2024 (Should you try them?)

By 01/04/20244 Comments

The best way to get to know what is timeless? You need to have a finger on the pulse of what’s trending at all times. Here’s my take on the biggest trends I’m seeing for 2024.

And of course, I’ll tell you which ones are worth a try and which ones scream “don’t try this at home”.

Colour is trending in 2024

First, let’s look at what’s coming in colour. Peach is finally making a comeback which makes Pantone’s prediction of Peach Fuzz this year accurate.  


I have said this before and I’m continuing to report that the cognac sofa singlehandedly brought back all things orange, like orange toned wood, and creamy orange beige (which hasn’t been trending since the 90s).  So it’s not surprising that peach is not far behind. However, I did expect it to make a quicker comeback since we haven’t seen it since the 80s, just like pink and pink made it’s appearance a few years ago already.

A New Kitchen Trend that is Coming Up Fast

And suddenly, it seems like everyone who is renovating or building a new kitchen is installing this ONE feature, along with super creative tile, it’s all here in my trends report for 2024 this week!

2024 Colour Training

I have big news! I’m launching a new version of my live colour training this spring that’s specially devoted to home projects! It’s everything you need to know to put your new build or renovation vision into words (so you end up with the look you want AND avoid costly mistakes along they way)!

2024 February Colour Training for Homeowners

We’ve been doing this virtually for a few years now, and I think it could be even more helpful if you attend with your spouse or partner! That way you are both on the same page when you’re faced with all those choices you’ll need to make.

But don’t worry, you can still attend solo and use your new “charming but bossy” knowledge to tell your contractor or your spouse/partner what needs to happen. 

Anyway, that just means you don’t have to go it alone from your computer anymore – spouses and partners welcome!

Colour harmony = relationship harmony = dream home you’ll love forever!

    Hi Maria! I was on the peach train with you back in 2018, painted my bathroom BM Queen Anne Pink, and I still LOVE it! Totally agree with you about the range alcoves…they may look lovely now but as you said, unless they’re in a home that matches the style, it may not look like you imagined it would. As a realtor I see many homes where the home owner made poor design choices, it’s sad how easily people ruin their homes with trendy looks. What’s “in” today most likely will not be “in” a few years. Like those ash gray wood floors, unless it’s a beach house, why would you install them… My biggest take away from following you, is to remind myself that boring = classic… the KISS attitude has kept me in line when making de$ign decisions. You want trendy, buy some throw pillows… So here’s a big THANK YOU MARIA!

    I miss the content in your blog posts. I know you probably get a lot more traffic in the videos, but I often don’t want to watch a video, or I’m not in a place where I can listen and watch something. Your content is still great, and I enjoy it when I can. I’m just letting you know my vote for more back on the blog.

    Hi Maria,

    I too wish there was content within your posts rather than videos, I used to live reading them and taking screenshot of important advice. I might start to watch the videos but I like to read and relax.
