The 3 New 2024 Decor Trends That The EHD Team Are Betting On

I know it can seem a little mysterious how people, designers, and publications “call trends”. HOW DO THEY KNOW?? Well, first off these “calls” are mostly just educated guesses and the education part is because we are filling our eyeballs with design content every day. So naturally we can see things start to pop up and patterns start. It’s pretty fun and always interesting because sometimes I’m really excited and onboard and other times I’m less on-board and more, um, intrigued. So today, I’m going to talk about three trends that I’ve recently clocked that the team and I think are on their way to full trend status. Now this doesn’t mean any of you have to jump on the bandwagon! This post is just meant to let you in on the ground floor of what we think are going to be bigger trends this year! Let’s begin.

Trend #1: Statement Shower Curtains

A fun and very approachable trend! Within the same week, I saw these two posts pop up on my Instagram. I was swooning and they quickly made me rethink my shower curtain for my bathroom design.

I love how Dabito decided to use two patterned curtain panels up to the ceiling of this bathroom instead of one to the side. The height of the ceilings definitely adds some beautiful drama but the fringe at the top also really brings your eye up. But more than anything the double panel look really frames the tub area perfectly and just elevates the whole space.

Orlando did the same thing at the Londo Lodge and it also makes the whole bathroom look so much cooler! What a fun trend that nearly any of us with this kind of shower/tub setup can do. As long as you have a shower liner, you can use nearly any curtain panel. Go for it:)

Now this one isn’t the double panel look but it is an INSANELY cool shower curtain. The stripes, the ruffles, it’s such an easy pattern statement to make. This will likely be where I am headed since I don’t have the setup for the other look.

So all this to say, we think you can expect people to start playing more with their shower curtains because why not? It’s a low-risk, high-reward statement that can easily be changed if you want to change up style. 10.10

Trend #2: 3-D Wall Art Installations

Now this was another one that all of a sudden I saw like three posts in different styles pop up on my feed. Historically, when I thought of 3-D wall art I would think of my dad putting up iron swallows on his brick wall in his old NYC apartment. You know like the swallows were just flying by on their way back to good ole San Juan Capistrano:) Did I love them? No. But he did so that’s all that mattered. But then Heidi Caillier did this…

Ok Heidi, you have my attention. This is pretty darn whimsical and I am here for it. I think the sheer number of flowers really helps make this as astounding as it is. Plus, while I’ll never not love a gallery wall or a beautifully framed piece of art, mixing it up with a beautiful installation like this is pretty great.

For this one, I think you’ll need to scroll to the second photo. See all those butterflies! A totally different style of home but the same sort of idea all within a week or so of each other. It felt wild to see them come up so close together which is why I had to mention it. It’s the chicest version of 3D art out there. Then as I was writing this post, I realized I’m planning on doing a version of this in my bedroom so I guess it really is in the design zeitgiest! Only time will tell.

Trend #3: Light Blue??

This one Caitlin yelled “YES!” when I proposed it as a trend which made me even more confident.

As you likely know, Emily is no stranger to light blue…well all blues. She’s used it a bunch but maybe most notably in the Portland Project Laundry Room and her farmhouse mudroom. She loves that pale blue soooo much! But the light blue that we think is going to hit is a bit more saturated. Let me show you.

This home tour has been one of my favorites so far this year. It’s romantic and old yet fresh. That bright light blue they used throughout has a lot to do with that fact, don’t you think?? This would have never been a color I would have been drawn to in fear of it looking too “young” (?) but the way they contrasted it with their antique furnishing makes my eyes very happy.

But you don’t need to contrast the way that the previous couple did. This kitchen is calm, happy, and a touch outside of neutral. The blue cabinets are a little unexpected but so perfect. It’s a nice change from sage green (although I still love green as a cabinet color choice:))

If you stroll over a few photos you’ll see a slightly more dusty light blue on the ceiling. I am obsessed and have actally been thinking of doing this in my bathroom! Carmen Smith of Aquilo Interiors recently designed producer, director, and showrunner, Prentice Penny, and his wife’s home. It’s a beautiful explosion of color and pattern but that blue ceiling might be my favorite.

Last but not least is Bryce Howard’s newly finished New York home. Light blue is a main feature! It clearly adds the cozy sweetness Bryce was after. She wanted a ” Wes Anderson directs a Jane Austen film” style and I can’t image a better way to describe this home:)

I also love that when used well, light blue is always going to look awesome. It might be more in style than it has been but it’s also never going anywhere. 10/10!

So what do you think?? Have you been noticing these trends popping up too? I have a few more that I have my eye on so if you like this post I can do another one when I feel more confident.

Love you, mean it.
