Interior Design trends for May 2024

Posted by Laura - on

The top interior design trends this Summer have a focus on space-saving ideas, and creating personal laid-back spaces in which we can truly unwind and be ourselves.

Here are the top five ways to beautify your home:

1. Add Sculptural Furniture

Take a curated and more artful approach to your home design and elevate it to more than just its function - it’s time to let your furniture do the talking when it comes to expressing your own home style. As the Style List says “sculptural furniture has become increasingly popular to express one's style and add a unique touch to interiors. The trend is characterized by bold, often oversized forms that make a statement in any space”. The artistic flair of carefully selected statement furniture should be balanced with a practical and usable level of function to make the most out of your space. Check out the hourglass styling of the handmade Lido side table with its eye-catching faux shagreen finish, or the limed black and bronze-detailed Leopoldo side table - both ideal for use as a table lamp to brighten the darkest corner.

2. Say Goodbye to Cold Grey

The affection for Scandi-inspired style has ensured that neutrals are still ‘in’, but cooler grey tones have been replaced by warmer beiges, off-whites and taupes. This warm and inviting palette works beautifully with the modest decoration, and natural elements found in Scandinavian homes, as well as sitting seamlessly within almost any other interior space. An off-white scheme is also a wonderful backdrop for some bold and bright wall art, allowing the work to punctuate the space and create a splash.

3. Embrace Seventies Revival

The optimism and free-spiritedness of the 70s has seen the interiors world looking fondly on the era of earthy colour palettes, natural materials and sumptuously shaggy soft furnishings. Try introducing a little retro nostalgia with rattan furniture, dark wood furniture and accessories, lacquered surfaces, and faux fur throws - like the luxurious Oyster Faux Fur Throw by Helen Moore. 



4. Create a ‘Spathroom’

This is the portmanteau word coined from the combination of ‘spa’ and ‘bathroom’ - inspired by the burgeoning trend for creating self-care spaces in the home and relaxing spa-inspired decor. According to House Beautiful “In 2024, bathroom materials like stone, quartz and marble replicate an indulgent spa experience, while […] an abundance of candles and plants, and considered mood lighting all contribute to a sense of serenity.” An elegant cabinet or small bench is a great way to add a little comfort and warmth to a bathroom. Our Petite Side Table, with its soft crackle-effect paint finish, French styling, and useful drawer and shelf area would make a great addition to even the smallest space (measuring at only 35cm wide), providing both a pleasing aesthetic and space for storing extra towels and other bathroom accessories.

5. Introduce High-Shine Surfaces

Bringing in high-shine surfaces including polished metals like aluminium and chrome is a great way to catch natural light and bounce it back into the room - maximising illumination in your space. Choosing soft curved and organic shaped pieces also creates a lustrous effect - bending surrounding colours and elements into retro-futuristic displays. The Maestro Table Light features a polished nickel lamp shade, arm and base, with an appealing curved for and retro style, meaning it sits comfortably within this latest shining decor trend.
