If you haven’t made your 2024 vision board yet, fear not as we have gathered some of the world’s most stunning homes that once dawned the pages of our beautiful House & Garden SA magazine. While not everyone has the desire to subscribe to a new year’s resolution or the “new year, new me” adage, a vision board is a great tool to navigate trends, your own personal taste, DIY projects, and aspiration, (in a judgement-free way).

From maximising on over-the-top colourful decor to decluttering your home of unnecessary objects, here are some of our favourite homes to help you bring your 2024 vision board to life.

Lean into Peach-Toned Trends

Peach Fuzz is Pantone’s 2024 Colour of the Year as a compassionate colour with warmth and modern elegance. This peach-toned wallpaper that sits behind an antique chest of drawers creates a gentle, yet warm backdrop for the its fauna and flora theme.

This London apartment gets a French makeover for a home that is at once chic, and filled with undeniable joie de vivre. Tucked away in the heart of London is Belgravia, a small district lined with grand terraces and stucco houses informed by a mix of Georgian and Regency architecture. London-based Studio Ashby was called on with a clear brief; to create a home that captured the metropolitan appeal of Belgravia, while exuding the effortless chic reminiscent of a Haussmann-style Parisian pied-à-terre.

Sage Green Walls

Paint colours like Sage Green’ or 'Jewel Beetle', are perfect for enveloping a space with a sense of relaxation and comfort. If you’re looking to revamp your bedroom, bathroom, or sitting area in 2024, turn to a jewel-toned green for a sophisticated affair as seen in this Massachusetts home by Boston-based designer Sashya Thind, or sage green for a soft hue.

Bring Your Kitchen Counters to Life with Fresh Produce

This kitchen counter in a Cape Town home leans into using seasonal produce like vibrant lemons to add a splash of colour while complementing the kitchen’s soft yellow cupboards. Like a vase of fresh flowers, tapping fresh produce to bring in a swath of colour is a great way to experiment with different colours, especially if your kitchen has a more neutral colour palette. Pair your fresh produce with colourful bowls and vessels to create a dramatic kitchen table centre piece, or adorn neutral ceramic dishes with vibrant citrus fruit, alliums, and herbs.

Lamps and Lanterns Light the Way

If you follow any interior design or apartment lifestyle content on social media, you will notice the conscious push for integrating more lamps and varied light sources over a singular unit of overhead lighting. Overhead lighting like chandeliers, receded spotlights, and spotlights are coined ‘big lights’ and are rarely being used in favour of floor lamps, lanterns, candle lights, and table lamps.

Even in a home that leans more Brutalist in its architecture, lighting choices are paramount for creating comfort and softness in the bedroom. In 2024, we are in pursuit of cosiness at home, and we’re turning to lighting to sets the mood. Check out some ‘lamp tours’ to get inspiration for your next mood lighting purchase.
