In 2024, this interior design trend is embracing a warmer, earth-toned colour palette, marking a departure from the cooler tones of previous years. This shift means darker, richer earth colours, with clay and terracotta tones leading the way to creating inviting and serene living spaces.

This trend is a beautiful choice for your living room, welcoming a range of colours, from mossy greens and muted yellows, to deep oranges, browns, and beiges, complemented by the calming presence of houseplants, it is really versatile. A pop of green is a lovely way to create a relaxing living room by adding more serene natural tones - choose beautiful earthy accessories, such as this green and gold pot, to finish the look.

Incorporating calming earth tones into your home can be as simple as picking out soft furnishings in colours you love. To complement your new interior décor, pair colours rooted in nature with wooden accents in your favourite shade. Our handmade solid wood furniture, shelves, and mantel collections are available in a variety of wax finishes. So, you'll find the perfect finish of unique natural wood to suit your earth-toned living room.


2. Farmhouse Aesthetic

A classic interior trend that is perfect for creating a homely atmosphere - the Farmhouse aesthetic feels cosy and snug, complementing traditional and modern décor.

This design trend creates classic country and rustic rural aesthetics. Farmhouse style in 2024 continues to celebrate the beauty of natural materials, emphasising elements such as exposed stone, wooden and flagstone floors, and classic furniture. If you love a simplistic look, leaning towards pastels and neutrals that pair perfectly with a rustic style, this interior trend is ideal for your living room.

The muted colour palette of a Farmhouse aesthetic, in creams, beiges, and greys, offers a beautiful backdrop that highlights wood and stone's texture and character, making them stand out. For example, a natural focal point like a fireplace or an alcove would complement a rustic solid wood mantel beam perfectly. Adding the warmth of natural wood into your space and some depth to an empty wall!

The perfect furniture for a living room with a Farmhouse aesthetic has a preference for classic, quality pieces -  whether a beautifully handmade wooden coffee table or a rustic style solid wood sideboard. For a cosy touch, choose accessories such as a super soft classic wool throw, or stoneware pottery in a muted tone.


3. Multipurpose Spaces
