Furthermore, experts say Ashely Graham's living room color scheme is set to become a huge design trend in 2024. 'Natural elements in the home are trending this year,' says Jennifer. She continues, 'We are seeing more and more people gravitate towards the elegant simplicity and calming atmosphere of design styles like Japandi, the fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian design. You can create this by layering natural, beige decor elements into your design.' These styles all share a warm minimalist color palette and design philosophy.

Based on a study conducted by B2C Furniture, minimalism is still the trendiest design aesthetic with more global average monthly searches than other popular styles like mid-century modern or cottage-core. The trend prioritizes simplicity, clean lines, and relaxing colors, all perfectly embodied in Ashley Graham's living room.

To recreate the model's minimalist living room, Stacey Clarke, furniture expert and general manager at B2C Furniture, suggests, 'Focus on keeping your living space clean and well-balanced by implementing a more cohesive palette. Combine airy and light textures with natural elements, as this promotes a sense of balance and harmony.'

She continues, 'Open up the space by decluttering and moving bulky items that create an obstruction, such as furniture blocking pathways or windows, to allow better airflow and circulation. Opting for space-saving furniture or storage to keep items stored and tucked away is another cost-effective solution to clear up clutter.'
