Designer Dalia Carter's Forecast Trends for 2024:
Embracing Natural Elegance
As we step into 2024, the world of interior design is poised for exciting transformations. Our designers, Dalia Carter, Anna Cofrin, and Lindsey Swanson, share their unique predictions for this year, offering a glimpse into the trends that will debut in the upcoming projects they are working on. Let's explore each designer's forecast in detail, starting with Dalia!
1. Natural Stone Countertops with Movement:
Dalia envisions a surge in the popularity of natural stonecountertops characterized by captivating movement patterns. Unlike static and uniform surfaces, these countertops come alive with dynamic swirls, veins, and variations in color, echoing the untamed elegance found in the natural world. Each slab becomes a unique work of art. These countertops not only add a touch of organic elegance but also bring the beauty of nature indoors.
2. Statement Tile:
The trend of statement tile is gaining momentum, and it's all about making a bold and memorable impact. Infusing spaces with eye-catching tiles from kitchens to bathrooms. One notable example is the use of dark moody tiles against alighter marble backdrop, as showcased in our primary bathroom within the Artisan 2023 home. The striking contrast between the deep hues of the statement tiles and the luminosity of the marble creates a visually stunning effect. It's a bold choice that not only captures attention but also adds a layer of sophistication, turning the bathroom into a distinctive and stylish sanctuary.
This trend is not just about practical surfaces; it's aboutelevating spaces through design choices that leave a lasting impression. Get ready to witness the redefinition of tile aesthetics as statement tile takes center stage in future projects.
3. Textured Walls and Ceiling Treatments:
In the design landscape of 2024, texture emerges as a defining element, commanding attention from walls to ceilings. Spaces are set to be adorned with intricate textures that not only captivate the eye, but also add layers of depth and interest to the overall aesthetic. An exemplar of this trend is from our Artisan 2023 home which boasts wood-paneled ceilings in the primary suite, you will also see this in a few of Dalia’s upcoming projects as well. The natural warmth and grain of the wood panels infuse the room with a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The play of light and shadow on the textured surface adds a dynamic quality, turning the ceiling into a design feature that contributes to the overall character of the space. Another showcase of this trend is an inset painted ceiling in the primary suite of our Modern Tudor rambler. The application of painting techniques adds texture and a visual richness to the ceiling, creating a sense of luxury and sophistication.

The emphasis on textured walls and ceiling treatments signifies a departure from plain surfaces, welcoming a new era of design where touch is as important as sight.
4. Warmer, Detailed, and Layered Spaces:
Infusing warmth and personality into interiors, Dalia emphasizes the trend of creating more detailed and layered spaces. The result? Environments that are not just visually appealing but also deeply comforting where you can truly feel at home. Dalia's vision of 2024 encourages the use of warm color palettes, cozy textures, and inviting furnishings that collectively create a sense of comfort. Whether through earthy tones, soft textiles, or strategically placed lighting, the goal is to evoke a feeling of warmth that resonates throughout the space.
Layering elements within a space adds depth and complexity, creating a multi-dimensional experience. Dalia's trend encourages the layering of textures, patterns, and materials. Think plush rugs layered over hardwood floors, throw blankets draped over sofas, and a mix of decorative elements that
tell a story. The result is a space that feels lived-in and authentic.
