1. Curves and Arches: Nature-Inspired Elegance
Homes that mimic the fluidity and elegance of nature itself with curves and arches are taking center stage in architectural designs. Giving homes a biomorphic and organic feel. This departure from sharp angles and straight lines creates a harmonious flow, connecting indoor spaces with the natural world outside. Imagine sweeping archways and gentle curves that evoke a sense of tranquility, making your home a sanctuary of serenity.
2. Embracing Nature Materials: Building with the Environment in Mind
In 2024, there’s a strong emphasis on incorporating nature into our living space. Natural materials are at the forefront of this movement. Which is why I believe the marble trend isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. As its a strong natural material perfect for counter tops. That being said many are choosing to build or decorate their homes using materials for a sustainable and aesthetically pleasing home:
Wood: Sustainable and timeless, wood adds warmth and character to any space.
Stone: Granite, marble, and other natural stones bring a sense of luxury and durability. Don’t forget brick fireplaces and brick homes too!
Bamboo: A fast-growing and eco-friendly material, perfect for furniture.
Cork: Renewable and versatile, cork is an excellent choice for flooring and wall coverings.
3. Lime Washes: A Timeless Technique with a Modern Twist
As seen in popular videos, many are choosing to lime wash their red brick or stone exteriors or paint the interior walls with a lime wash. This age-old technique involves applying a thin layer of lime-based plaster to create a textured, nuanced finish. The result is a beautifully aged look that adds depth and character to walls. Lime washes not only provide a timeless aesthetic but also contribute to a healthier indoor environment by allowing walls to breathe. Furthermore, limewash can come in a multitude of different colours and isn’t limited to just white.
