What's new, novel, and essential when it comes to wall decor in 2024?

By Amy Wright | Feb 13, 2024

Wall decor trends have come a long way in the last year. If you want to keep your home from looking dated, it’s a good idea to make some changes to your decor.

You don’t have to overhaul every element of your home, but it does help to make a few changes and freshen up your home -- especially the main areas like the living room, kitchen, and family room.

Not sure what trends you should be keeping up with in 2024? We’ve got you covered. Here’s a breakdown of what’s new, novel, and essential this year!

Color Trends and Patterns

When it comes to home decoration in 2024, choosing the right colors has a big impact on how your house looks. The following are some of the most important color and pattern trends to be aware of this year:


Say goodbye to sharp angles and start embracing curves.

One of the new year’s top interior design trends is a focus on curves and softer edges. From rounded sofas to circular tables, curves are everywhere in 2024 -- including the walls.

How can you incorporate curves into your wall art? Look for rounded decor and mirrors, or choose photos that feature curved subjects (winding rivers, abstract swirls, etc.).

Jewel Tones

In 2023, peaceful art was all the rage. In 2024, though, things are getting a lot brighter.

If you need some new decorating ideas and want to change the color palette of your home, look for jewel-toned accents. Bright purples, blues, greens, and golds will be in high demand this year, so start stocking up now.

Whether you add a jewel-toned throw blanket to your couch or add some new artwork featuring shades of purple and blue, there are lots of ways to bring in new colors without repainting your whole house.

Earth Tones

If you don’t love bright jewel tones in your home decor, that’s okay. You can still stay on trend by incorporating personalized art featuring earth tones. Muted greens, browns, greys, and blues are also popular colors for wall art and other decorations this year.

Earthy color palettes work well in any room in your house, but they make an excellent base for living rooms, kitchens, and family rooms. With a more neutral base, you can add fun accents in virtually any color and come up with a variety of ways to make your artwork and decor pop.

Go Bold

Bold, dramatic moves will be big in 2024 as well. If you’re thinking about repainting or ordering some custom wall art, look for options that go against the grain and are sure to draw the eye.

Pick a bright pop of color or a large portrait displayed above your mantelpiece -- you have plenty of ways to catch people’s attention with your decor this year.

Popular Wall Decor Themes

Changing the theme of a room -- or your entire home -- is a great way to keep up with the latest interior decor trends and ensure that all your decorations work together and look cohesive. These wall decor themes are particularly popular in 2024:

Nature Themes

If you need new wall art ideas and aren’t sure where to begin, remember that you can’t go wrong with nature themes.

You can choose from a variety of options if you want to bring the outside inside and level up your wall decor. For example, you can hang floating shelves and perch some potted plants on them or look for nature prints to showcase throughout the home.

Historical Eras

Customized artwork that pays tribute to different historical eras is a good way to shake up your home decorations and stay trendy in 2024.

How can you mix historical eras? Maybe you can combine some vintage frames with more modern photos, or perhaps you can hang floating shelves and use them to display antique knickknacks on your walls.

Mixed Metals

Metal artwork and metal prints, particularly when they feature mixed metals (gold and silver, gold and copper, etc.), are also on trend this year.

Whether you prefer brushed or shiny metals, there are many ways to take advantage of this trend and make it your own. You can even print your family photos (or any other photo, for that matter) on metal!

Go Big or Go Home

2024 is the year of using art as a statement piece in your home. If you want to shake things up in the new year, start displaying big, bold, and unique wall art!

Large Prints

Large prints -- canvas prints, metal prints, framed photos, etc. -- will all look great displayed in your home. Use a large print as a focal point in your living room or hang a canvas above the kitchen table to serve as a conversation starter during meals.

Multi-Panel Prints

Who says you have to limit yourself to just one canvas or frame when hanging pictures on the walls? Another unique way to go big with your decor is to hang a multi-panel or triptych print (a triptych features three panels that create one piece of art).

Gallery Walls

Another way to draw attention and revamp your home is by creating a gallery wall. A gallery wall features a collection of pictures (like an art gallery, but in your home) instead of just one or two.

You can make a gallery wall by showcasing a series of photos of the same size, or you can mix it up with a combination of sizes, orientations (landscape and portrait), colors (black and white and full color), etc.

Tips for Incorporating New Wall Decor Trends

You know a little more about the latest wall decor and wall art trends for 2024. How do you incorporate them into your home, though? Here are a few tips to help you participate:

Pick One or Two Trends

It’s easy to get overwhelmed when you see new design inspiration. You might want to try several trends at once or feel unsure of which one to try first.

Remember that you don’t have to experiment with every single trend -- in fact, doing that is a great way to make your home look cluttered or disorganized.

We recommend picking just one or two trends to start. Maybe you want to try out the jewel tone trend or the nature trend, for example. In that case, you might add a few jewel-toned accents to your walls and leave it at that for a while.

Make a Statement Wall

You don’t have to refresh every single wall in every single room in your home, either.

It’s generally easier to pick just one wall and designate it as a statement wall. Then, you can focus on decorating that specific space and avoid feeling daunted at the idea of decorating an entire room.

A gallery wall is a great way to create a statement wall. You could also paint it a different color and then hang photos in contrasting frames. The options are virtually endless!

Go One Room at a Time

Don’t overwhelm yourself with the idea of having to redo every room in the house. Start with one room, and when you’re satisfied with how it looks and the new decorative elements you’ve added, move on to the next one.

We typically recommend starting with a main room, like the living room or kitchen. However, you could also start with a room that doesn’t get a lot of use, like your guest room. That way, if you’re not happy with the new decor, you don’t have to rush to change it because you’re looking at it all day, every day.

Choose Timeless Frames or Canvas Prints

When choosing the art you want to display on your walls, consider using neutral frames in black, white, brown, or gold.

Neutral frames will work well with any paint color and any type of photo. That way, you don’t have to worry about replacing all your frames just because you’re redecorating your home.

Canvas prints are another timeless option. They can also pair with any paint color and can be complemented by other types of pictures, including framed photos.

Do What Makes You Happy

Last but not least, when creating personalized living spaces, you have to do what makes you happy.

Keeping up with the trends is important, especially if you don’t want your home to feel dated, but you don’t have to experiment with every fad that comes along. Pick those that speak to you, and leave the rest!

Embrace what 2024 will bring!

From jewel tones and curved lines to nature themes and mixed metals, there are many new trends to keep in mind when redecorating in 2024.
