Look for expandable furniture pieces to cater to the evolving needs of a growing family, remote workers or larger gatherings. Prioritize functionality, such as investing in an extendable table to create a multi-use space. Buffets or display cabinets can double as bookshelves, storage for dishes, or as an aesthetic statement piece to display ornaments.  Versatility is key for you to accommodate to the fluidity of modern-day life.

Warm Natural Shades

Earthy tones like terracottas, walnut browns and chocolate tones have emerged as the key colour palette for dining rooms in 2024.

Moody Colour Palettes

Design experts have observed increased popularity of darker tones such as plum, mauve, wine and dark brown within living room décor. These moody hues can be reflected through velvet fabrics and curved furniture, which creates an ambiance of intimacy for gatherings of guests. When used thoughtfully, dark colors have the ability to create an essence of drama and the illusion of space. If you prefer sticking to neutrals, you can introduce natural colors to your living space through natural materials in moody, earthy colour palettes. Consider introducing creams, browns, rusts and muted greens for a serene yet sophisticated atmosphere. This creates a laid-back and inviting ambiance.
