For 2024, IKEA released a trends and style guide to help you create your dream home in the new year. The IKEA Style Guide 2024 introduces four interior design movements, along with insights and expert designer tips to inspire you to create happier homes.
This new IKEA Style Guide is created to help you design beautiful and comfortable homes rooted in real-life experiences. This is the first time IKEA has released a trends and style guide and I hope it is here to stay as it’s filled with affordable interior inspiration.
The IKEA Trends and Style Guide 2024 introduces four styles: Warm Minimalism, Swedish Roots, Modern Playfulness, and Scandinavian Folklore. The guide helps you to pick products from the IKEA collection to design your home in these interior styles, but it also encourages you to mix, match, and experiment with the expressions in your home.
Seasons Change – Design Trends Do, Too
But unlike seasonal shifts, endlessly pursuing the latest design trends will distract you from filling your home with pieces that you love and that love you back. Why not stop chasing trends and create happier homes based on real-life experiences?
‘We wanted to help you create a home based on your celebrations, your real routines, your authentic needs, your shared grievances, and everything in between. The 2024 IKEA Style Guide is intended to show how design and everyday living are intertwined and how, together, they can create a beautiful, more comfortable home life.
Whether you fall head over heels in love with one style, or decide to experiment and mix them up, it’s up to you. What matters is you choose what works best for your home and what fills your everyday life with comfort and joy.’ – Seana Strawn, Country Home Furnishing & Retail Manager at IKEA
