Let's get ready to welcome 2024 by saying goodbye in style to some decorative trends of the past. The end of a year invites us to renew, say goodbye to what has already completed its cycle, and make way for the fresh and new, and why not a little unexpected?

I researched in depth, snooped through the secrets of interior designers and compiled twelve trends that have already served their time; it's time to let them go to make room for what's to come!

Let me polish the text a little to make it shine even more. We're about to say goodbye to these trends with style!

1. Excessive Industrial Style: Revive with Elegance

The fervour over exposed pipes has reached a fever pitch. To freshen up the space, opt for more subtle industrial touches. Combine industrial-style lamps with natural wood furniture to create a balanced and elegant aesthetic.

2. Accent Walls: Blend Colours and Textures

Say goodbye to the trend of accentuating a single wall. Unify your space with a colour palette that flows harmoniously. How can you achieve it? Play with textures or incorporate decorative panels instead of highlighting a specific wall to give your space a more cohesive and attractive feel.

3. Exaggerated Animal Prints: Subtlety in Design

Extravagance in animal prints is giving way to a more refined aesthetic. Opt for small touches of these patterns on cushions or accessories, balancing them with soft textiles and more discreet patterns. This way, you will achieve an elegant and less overwhelming atmosphere.

4. Excessive Wicker Furniture: Moderation is the Key

Excess wicker is no longer in fashion. Refresh your space by subtly incorporating a wicker chair as an accent, pairing it with cleaner-lined furniture. This moderate change will give a fresh touch without saturating your environment.

5. Bright Neon Colours: Rest in Relaxing Tones


Say goodbye to bright neon colours and hello to more relaxing tones. Experiment with pastel or neutral tones to energise things without overwhelming your senses. The softness in the palette will create a more balanced and sophisticated environment.

6. Extreme Minimalist Style: Minimalism with Warmth

Minimalism continues, but now with a warm touch. Integrate art or plants to bring life and personality without cluttering the space. A more balanced minimalism creates a cosy atmosphere full of character.

7. Excess Subway Tiles: Explore New Textures


Subway tiles are losing ground. Experiment with handcrafted mosaics or tiles for a unique expression. The variety in textures will add depth and originality to your spaces.

8. Excessive Thematic Decoration: Subtlety with Thematic Touches

Less is more when it comes to themed decor. Add subtle touches with key pieces or decorative elements instead of completely immersing yourself in a theme. This moderation will maintain a sophisticated and elegant atmosphere.

9. Clear Acrylic Furniture: Character in Furniture
