How to incorporate orchids according to the latest interior trends

Trend colour: Sweet Embrace

The trend colour we’ll be seeing a lot of next year is Sweet Embrace. Dulux has declared this as the Colour of the Year 2024. It’s a gentle blossom pink that is welcoming and brings a sense of peace and softness to a space. An easy way to add this colour to your interior is through orchids. This allows you to introduce a pop of colour, without immediately painting an entire wall in this shade.

Trend: Curved Lines

The Curved Lines trend revolves around round shapes. Think of the round and oval dining tables that we saw a lot of in 2023. In 2024, we’re taking it a step further with even more organic shapes. Imagine a table with a top in various winding forms that seamlessly flow into the legs. Or a curved sofa, a rug in shapes other than straight lines, or start small with a plant pot in organic forms, housing an orchid in a natural hue.

Trend: Soft Seventies

The Soft Seventies trend takes us back to the Seventies, a vibrant decade where fabrics and patterns were all about going wild. In 2024, we leave behind the busy prints and instead embrace velvet fabrics, vertical wooden slats, large and comfortable furniture pieces, and funky shapes that add a twist to your interior. The colour palette consists of greens like olive, shades of purple, and caramel. A colour combination that you can easily bring into your home with orchids!

Dulux Colour of the Year 2024

The name of the Dulux Colour of the Year 2024 gives it away: Sweet Embrace is a sweet and warm colour. Inspired by the softness of feathers and the subtlety of evening clouds. It’s a delicate shade that changes tone with the light but that always brings warmth to a space. Sweet Embrace is versatile in interior applications, especially because the colour is not too pink.

Sweet Embrace in the interior

Around the Colour of the Year, palettes have been created with colours that are easy to apply and reflect various trends. The colour palettes represent three trends: the quest for belonging, the quest for tranquillity, and the quest for joy.


An uplifting colour story

Mixing ethereal and dreamy tones of ochre and soft lilac, this palette has a contemporary, uplifting mood. Its mix of shades provides great opportunities for dynamic colour combinations that can enliven a scheme and bring energy and positivity.



A warm colour story

Warm, natural shades of sand, soil and terracotta – this family of global earth tones can help create spaces that feel familiar and embracing. These colours are ideal for layering to create a warm, comforting backdrop, and they work particularly well in living rooms or places where people want to come together, connect with family and friends and feel relaxed.

A calm colour story

Recalling the colours of woodlands and seascapes, these soft greens and blues have a naturally calming and clarifying effect. This palette works perfectly with natural materials such as wood, cork and wool. Mixing darker shades with lighter neutrals, this is a balanced palette that can bring a feeling of simplicity and serenity.

The 4 interior design trends we’ll be seeing a lot in 2024

Curious about the interior design trends for 2024? To give you a hint, it’s all about revisiting the trends from years past. The ’70s and the Urban Jungle are making a comeback. Additionally, expect to see a lot of rounded shapes and sustainability – both of which have always had a presence. Read on to discover the interior trends for 2024!

Interior design trends for 2024

Curved Lines

The Curved Lines trend is one that can be integrated into nearly any interior style. It revolves around incorporating rounded shapes. Think of round and oval dining tables, which were already prominent in 2023. However, 2024 takes it a step further. Imagine organic tables, such as a tabletop adorned with various twists and movements that seamlessly flow into the legs. Or a curved sofa. This also applies to a rug: it’s no longer simply rectangular but comes in various shapes.



Bold & Funky

The Bold & Funky interior trend takes us back to the Seventies – a vibrant decade where fabrics and patterns were all about going wild. However, the busy prints will be left behind in 2024. What we will be seeing? Plenty of velvet fabrics, vertical wooden slats, large and comfortable furniture pieces, and funky shapes that add a twist to your interior.

Colours within the Bold & Funky trend are more subdued to promote tranquility and unity. The colour palette features softened greens like olive, shades of purple, and caramel. This allows you to incorporate eye-catching colours while still maintaining a calm atmosphere at home. To add a touch of vibrancy, consider adding cobalt blue accessories – from decorative cushions on the sofa to artworks on the wall!



Sustainable Living

Sustainability remains a pertinent topic, which explains its ongoing prominence within interior design. It starts with revamping old furniture and buying second-hand pieces from thrift stores, but it goes beyond that. Sustainable alternatives to new products are becoming increasingly prevalent. Think of curtains made from recycled PET bottles, carpets crafted from old fishing nets, and furniture constructed from repurposed wood!

Furthermore, the production process is evolving: artisanal craftsmanship is gaining prominence. The focus is shifting away from polluting mass production that rapidly changes collections and moving towards handcrafted furniture, art, and accessories, all created with a mindful approach for our planet.



Soft Outdoor

For Urban Jungle enthusiasts, the Soft Outdoor trend brings good news, as greenery is making a comeback. But with a subtle twist. While the Urban Jungle previously featured robust metal elements, rustic mango wood, and teak, 2024 shifts towards the use of light oak and refined steel finishes. Marble is also making a comeback, subtly integrated into small tables. When it comes to fabrics, think of linen or cotton in soft hues to induce a calming sensation. Leaf-patterned wallpaper is still popular, but in a more subdued manner. And of course, plants are an essential element in this trend!

Interior, flower & plant style trends for 2024

Curious about the style trends for 2024? The Flower Council Holland has developed four style trends for 2024, together with Tuinbranche Nederland, iBulb, INretail and Bureau Nijman + Van Haaster. All four are based on the current zeitgeist but are all different. Keep reading to get inspired!

Style trends for 2024


Meaningful Earth

The Meaningful Earth style trend revolves around the concept of the earth: an “ancestral” interior filled with rough and rugged materials. These materials are natural and coarse, often eco-friendly or made from recycled materials. Think of stone, minerals, ceramics, coconut, burlap, cotton, pressed recycled leather, clay, mud and irregular glass. The shapes are rough, coarse and irregular, and have a primitive look and feel. The designs are natural as well, such as spot patterns, fossil prints and stripes that resemble layers of earth. Additionally, objects like jugs or sculptures are incorporated to connect with the roots of our culture.



Floral arrangements are not neat and tidy but have a rugged look & feel. In terms of plants, we see lots of highly visible bulb products. For instance, placed in a glass bowl full of multi-coloured sand layers, so that the soil is clearly discernible.


Stijltrends 2024: Meaningful Earth



Not surprisingly, shades of brown play a major role in the colour chart for accessories. The Meaningful Earth colour chart has been modified for flowers and plants and contains light yellow and salmon hues, that combine beautifully with dark and greyish-green shades.


Viva La Vida

The Viva La Vida style trend represents a cheerful, exuberant celebration of life, filled with passion, colour and expressiveness. Forget minimalism and immerse the home in vibrant colours – Spain and Mexico are clearly sources of inspiration here. Natural materials are used in a decorative manner. These include decorative tiles, mosaics, coloured and woven reed and raffia, textiles with frayed ends, frills and fringes, pigmented wood and patterned wrought iron with patterns. The designs are colourful and diverse, ranging from classic to modern.


Stijltrends 2024: Viva La Vida



When it comes to floral arrangements, colour is key. Preferably vibrant and festive, combined with full flower forms. Whether it’s voluminous bouquets or a single striking flower, they serve as eye-catching focal points. Flowering houseplants are also perfect for this trend.



This kind of trend naturally features a warm and exuberant colour palette. Essential colours are pink, red, Viva Magenta (Pantone colour of the year 2023), orange and bright yellow. These colours are also found in flowers, plants and accessories. The accent colours in this palette include black, Marsala brown and bright mint green. These tones are perfect for accessories and large elements, both indoors and outdoors.

Gentle Paradox

Contrast is what style trend Gentle Paradox is all about. In a calm interior, we find an abundance of round and soft shapes, with furniture that is sometimes made of unexpectedly hard materials. Hard, smooth materials alternate with soft structures, as if trying to soften the hard reality. Marble, concrete, ceramics, plastic, baked tiles and natural stone are common elements, alternating with high-pile carpets on floors and walls. Textiles also play a role, from pleated and ribbed to bouclé. In terms of patterns, the sky’s the limit, with everything from romantic floral patterns to abstract designs.



Stijltrends 2024: Gentle Paradox


Flowers also contribute to softening and creating a dreamy atmosphere. For example, by placing arrangements in corners or on the floor, against the wall. Arrangements are ‘cloudy’, often with transparent edges and also featuring dried flowers. Individual flowers add a sense of softness through their shape or subtly transitioning colours. A transparent character and soft leaves, in terms of colour and texture, are also important when it comes to plants.



The Gentle Paradox colour palette is soft and conveys a sense of tranquillity and harmony. Neutral colours and pastel shades alternate with a warm cognac colour. The shades of green are mostly found in flowers and plants.


Stijltrends 2024: Gentle Paradox


Playful Construction

Style trend Playful Construction revolves around experimenting. Featuring playful solutions and structural exuberance, like giant links that together form a sofa. Everything appears to be the consequence of a surprising perspective on consumer items and decorative products. The interior has an optimistic look & feel thanks to product combinations and cheerful colours. Materials are of secondary importance. However, we see lots of tubular constructions made of metal, plastic or glass, which helps to shape the structural character of this trend. The surfaces are mostly smooth. Patterns also play a minor role and are limited to stripes, checks, ridges and circles.


Circular shapes are prevalent in flowers, both in the floral arrangements themselves and the underlying elements. Hanging plants also play a prominent role, excitingly duelling with basic constructions in pots or wall decorations.


Stijltrends 2024: Playful Construction


Colour is key with this trend, which features a highly diverse colour palette. This palette includes bright colours, fresh pastel hues, silver and light grey – all of which can be combined endlessly.

Viva Magenta: Colour of the Year 2023

Pantone reveals the year’s colour based on trends in different industries, including interior and fashion. In 2023, that will be Viva Magenta: a brave, dynamic and vibrant hue. It’s a pulsating colour whose exuberance promotes optimism and joy.

How to style the Colour of the Year 2023

Viva Magenta is a striking colour but combines easily with other colours. You can easily add an accent colour to your interior with plants, and the same goes for the orchid in this dark red colour. This is already a beauty in itself because the colour matches beautifully with the dark green of the leaves of the plant.



For example, create a ton-sur-ton effect by styling Viva Magenta with the same shades. Think of light pink, purple or burgundy.

The Colour of the Year 2023 also combines great with contrasting colours, such as yellow and orange. The result is a cheerful mix that is perfect for spring.

Do you prefer a calm base? Then opt for light blue, light gray, khaki or taupe. With these natural shades, the Colour of the Year stands out beautifully.

The style trends for 2023 in the field of flowers and houseplants

Curious about this year’s trends? The Flower Council Holland has developed four style trends for 2023, together with Tuinbranche Nederland, iBulb, INretail and Bureau Nijman + Van Haaster. All four are based on the current zeitgeist, but are all different. Read on and get inspired by these style trends for 2023!


The style trends for 2023

Ode to Nature

Within Ode to Nature it seems as if nature invades and takes over our interior. The used materials are natural – such as rattan, clay, wood, natural stone -, recycled and/or environmentally conscious. The shapes are organic, robust and whimsical. For example, we see many rock, stone and boulder shapes or shapes that appear to be handmade. Used designs are natural structures, reliefs, whimsical stripes and gradient or overflow effects. In terms of colour, expect brown, green and soft, natural tones in the interior.



The flowers and plants within this trend are whimsical and natural in shape and are also used in that way. Outdoors, nature is given free rein too, with organic and whimsical shapes. Gardens take on a wild character, with winding semi-paved paths and wild borders. The use of many different plants and flowers stimulates biodiversity. Balconies are also vibrant green, with an abundance of plants, horizontally and vertically.


De stijltrends voor 2023 op het gebied van interieur, bloemen en planten


Vintage Folklore

Vintage Folklore is about diversity and the longevity of a product. Don’t just throw something away, but repair it with love. This leads to an interior with influences from the 1970s, from rural folklore, handicrafts, and fine floral designs, but also composite products, broken and broken shapes as if they were glued together.



The result is a personal interior with a warm, inviting appearance. Think of soft furniture with round shapes, coloured wall plates and patchwork. Bouquets are colourful and wild, with dried flower details. Plants are everywhere.


De stijltrends voor 2023 op het gebied van interieur, bloemen en planten


Within Vintage Folklore there are many materials with a nod to the 1970s. Jersey, bouclé, corduroy, textiles, crochet and knitting, veneer, tiles and ceramics are examples of this. The colours in this trend are cheerful and diverse, and don’t seem to match at first glance. Expect a colourful palette with natural and bright tones and pastels in addition to dark colours.



Outside we see a garden that arises more or less spontaneously through the use of elements that happen to be available. This ensures a creative garden or balcony full of beautiful recycled finds, in which everyone is welcome and everything is possible. You will find colourful garden furniture, patterned partitions and a cosy collection of plant pots.


Layered Spaces

Nowadays we are living smaller and smaller, while at the same time we want to combine more functions in our house. This creates a certain layering, with multifunctional furniture and room dividers. For example, rooms are conveniently transformed by small adjustments, so that, for example, a workspace is created. By playing with effects you get the feeling that there is more space than there actually is. We come across flowers and plants in unexpected places, such as in the toilet. Bouquets are arranged in layers and you also need to be able to easily ‘stack’ or move plants.



The contrast is reflected in the colour chart too. We recognize warm/cold, light/dark and bright/pastel. By using colours that come towards you or increasing the distance, you create the spatial effect that is central to this trend.



In the garden, we see spaciousness too. There are many different corners, and indoor and outdoor spaces seem to merge into one another. For example, a heavily planted interior space can feel like a garden, especially in office buildings. We use the existing space optimally with plants: think of plants on roof terraces, roofs, barns and verandas. Fences and hedges provide a bocage-like effect. Full borders make way for more transparent plants, in which colour contrast plays an important role. This also influences spatiality.


Collecting Memories

In a changing world, we like to surround ourselves at home with products that we recognise and that give a comforting feeling. Common materials used in this trend are ceramics, porcelain, traditional wickerwork, enamel, cane, zinc, cast iron and natural textiles, wood, cork and leather. The designs are calm and unobtrusive. They sometimes refer to nostalgic patterns such as weaving or braiding. The flower arrangements are delicate and poetic. In natural bouquets, each individual flower receives attention. Small delicate flowers and leaves with a fine structure are important elements. We also see irregularly shaped plants and plant pots, and older plants that have grown together with their environment. These give a unique look to this trend.



Colours play an important role too. Soft and dark greens offer comfort and security. Lilac and pink stand for softness, memories, and poetry. Flowers and plants complete this sense of comfort and memories.



We also find harmony and poetry in the garden. Elegant winding paths, transparent borders and intimate terraces invite you to relax for a while. Colourful garden furniture consists of nostalgic wickerwork, plants have delicate leaves and lovely flowers. We see a great diversity of flowers and plants in soft colours, for a melancholic appearance.

Intimate wedding

One of the biggest wedding trends of 2022 is the intimate wedding, also known as micro-wedding or tiny wedding. Thanks to the pandemic, many couples have discovered the charm of an intimate party. They choose quality over quantity when it comes to wedding guests, typically with no more than 40 guests and only the ones who play an active role in their lives. Micro-orchids would be a great fit for this wedding. Micro in size, but multi-flowered!

The most popular wedding trends of 2022



We already saw it in the wedding trends of 2021, but sustainability remains a hot topic. With the world becoming more conscious of its own environmental impact, it’s no wonder that sustainable weddings have been growing in popularity over the years. Think of save the dates and invitations that are sent via email, bridal wear that is rented instead of bought and a vegetarian or even vegan dinner menu. Another idea is deco items that can be reused, such as houseplants that you place in your house afterwards, instead of artificial flowers. In the case of orchids, it’s easy. At the end of the wedding, everyone can take one (or more) home. Tip: provide bags so that they are easy to carry.



The most popular wedding trends of 2022


Flowers are indispensable at a wedding. Not only in the bridal bouquet, but also as decoration at the location. In recent years it was all about ‘the greener, the better’, but in 2022 it’s all about the flower itself! In addition, dried flowers are very popular, especially in combination with fresh flowers. Also, consider plants that are placed on the sides of the aisle. It’s something different and a bit more original!



The most popular wedding trends of 2022


Overdressing doesn’t exist

We’ve been sitting at home in our pyjamas and sweatpants for a long time, which makes everyone want to get dressed up again. And the same goes for the wedding guests. It’s time to get out and dust off the prettiest clothes. Being overdressed doesn’t exist anymore!
