Tori Murphy Relaxed Sheer Blind nzp3ul

Benji Lewis is an established British interior designer with extensive experience working on residential and commercial properties both at home and abroad. After training at the KLC School of Interior Design, Benji worked for Bonhams Auctioneers and a major Interiors house in London before successfully setting up on his own in 2004.

He says: “Decorating in 2024 is going to be fresh and fun, it’s time to step outside your interior design box, pick some unique colour pairings, bright fresh colours and textured fabrics. This year it’s about making homes cosy or incorporating more playful décor”.

Benji’s Top Five Trends for 2024

Peach Fuzz

This is Pantone's suggested colour of the year so think warmth - light terracotta tones can be combined with deeper shades of golden orange even going to vermilion. It looks welcoming and restful in the bedroom and is also surprisingly successful in a kitchen.

Sheers

Texture is in, so try including floor length sheer curtains at your windows behind your dress drapes. Use to create a terrifically glam layered effect whilst also providing daytime privacy

Stripes 

Perennially popular, stripes will always work. Look for simple broad two-tone designs; red and ivory work well or use more neutral tones to tone down the maximalism.

Shop vintage

It’s a great way to add charm and personality to your home, plus you’ll save money, and also respect the planet. Look online at sites like Vinterior or check out local car boot sales and stores, like Yarnton Antiques which you’ll find onsite at Yarnton Home & Garden

Quiet Luxury

This trend continues to shine in 2024, sparked by the tv show Succession. It is all about understated and timeless designs which focus on craftsmanship, and high-quality goods that are subtle yet clearly well-made.
