They’re practically never wrong.

There are a lot of “trend forecasters” out there, but the folks at Pinterest really know what they’re doing. The social site puts out a Pinterest Predicts report every year and they have an 80% accuracy rate—that’s because all of their predictions are based on a lot of data collection, analysis, and evaluation. The team uses search data to make these projections.

Last year, Pinterest said things like mushroom decor, elevated home spa bathrooms, drought-tolerant landscapes, new ways to showcase old decor and vintage finds, and baking with flowers would be big in 2023—and they weren’t wrong. We saw a lot of those themes throughout the year and many of these trends aren’t dying out yet (for example, the shroom boom is still very real).

So what do we have to look forward to in 2024, home-wise? Expect maximalist kitchens, plenty of metallics, coffee shop vibes at home, and a new design aesthetic that is the complete opposite of coastal grandmother, to name a few. Take a look at the design trends below (and some product inspo) and see Pinterest’s predictions for beauty, entertainment, fashion, food and drinks, and more here.
