Welcome to Boxwood Avenue, where we believe in the beauty of simplicity and meaningful living. As we step into the new year, let’s explore the luxury interior design trends that are set to take center stage in 2024. At Boxwood Avenue Interiors, our mission goes beyond design; it’s about crafting an exceptional collaboration between you, the homeowner, and us, the designers.
Trend Predictions for the Upcoming Year
Recent years have witnessed an evolving landscape of design styles, with experts unanimously agreeing on the importance of sustainable materials. In a world where trends come and go, we believe in the power of timeless appeal and quiet luxury.
Sustainable Materials: A Commitment to Good Design
Design experts recognize the increasing significance of sustainable materials in shaping interiors. In 2024, we anticipate a shift towards embracing organic shapes, dark woods, and warm colors. Natural materials, abundant natural light, and earthy tones will take precedence, creating spaces that not only look good but also feel good.

These sustainable elements are versatile, making them perfect for transforming various living spaces. Whether it’s the cozy warmth of dark woods in bedrooms or the organic shapes integrated into living room furniture, the trends seamlessly adapt to diverse spaces.
Bold Colors and Bold Wallpaper: Making a Statement
In the realm of color, bold is beautiful. Designers are predicting a surge in the use of high-gloss finishes and a celebration of bold colors, wallpapers, and brass accents. The color of the year, yet to be unveiled, will undoubtedly influence the palette of luxury interiors. Colorful wallpapers will play a pivotal role in creating cohesive color palettes throughout homes. I am currently remodeling my bathroom with color and wallpaper in mind!

This boldness extends beyond the living room and bedrooms. Imagine bringing this to the next level through the impact of vibrant colors and brass accents in hallways, staircases, a home office, and even kitchens, creating a perfect balance and dynamic flow throughout your entire home.
Traditional Design Elements: A Return to Elegance
Over the last couple of years, there’s been a resurgence of interest in traditional design elements. At Boxwood Avenue, we believe in creating spaces with timeless appeal, including the incorporation of the natural elements of millwork. We have a strong commitment to meticulous attention to detail and harmonious color palettes that stand the test of time.

This return to elegance is not confined to specific rooms. Traditional elements, such as millwork, can seamlessly grace living spaces, a dining room, fireplaces, and even staircases, adding a touch of sophistication to every corner of your home.
Unique Features: Sculptural Furniture and Vintage Light Fixtures
To add a touch of individuality, consider incorporating unique features into your space. Sculptural furniture and mid-century modern pieces can become focal points that tell a story. If a fully unique feature seems too bold, start with accent pieces like furniture with geometric shapes or vibrant colors. Vintage light fixtures, in particular, can transform a room and become a captivating focal point in your dining or living space.
Unleash the power of unique features not only in your living room and dining area but let them grace hallways, staircases, bedrooms, and more, creating a personalized and cohesive design narrative.
While we celebrate emerging trends, it’s essential to bid farewell to certain elements. Zellige tiles and an all-white kitchen, especially the trend of all-white kitchens, are gracefully stepping aside. Neutrals, though foundational, are being reimagined to avoid spaces feeling flat. A timeless white kitchen using natural materials like marble countertops or beautiful wood stains is the key to maintaining its everlasting elegance.
Out with the old, in with the timeless. From new builds to re-designs, let’s bid adieu to trends that no longer resonate and welcome enduring elegance into every living space.
2024 is set to embrace a harmonious blend of sustainability, bold aesthetics, timeless elegance, and the allure of quiet luxury. At Boxwood Avenue, we invite you to join us on a journey where every idea, every detail, and every dream is realized together. Let’s craft distinctive luxury interiors that reflect your unique style and personality.
