Girlcore; The Next Big Interior Design Trend

Saturday 20th Apr 2024 |

With 190.7M TikTok views, # girlcore went viral in the fashion and beauty space last year, as people reclaimed styles that are typically considered feminine and youthful, such as bows, lace and pink. 

Now, interior design experts at Plank Hardware predict ‘girlcore’ to be the next big interior design trend for 2024, as Maude Apatow’s pink NYC apartment starts to go viral on TikTok with over 274,000 views and counting. 

Maude’s NYC kitchen has been described as “classic, feminine chic at its best” and her cabinets are a “light pink that’s easy on the eye” in shade “Setting Plaster” by Farrow and Ball. 


Tom Revill, creative director of Plank Hardware said, “Maude’s kitchen is the epitome of ‘girlcore’, with light pink kitchen cabinets, marble countertops and pink velvet chairs. Often with TikTok trends, they start in one particular niche and feed into other industries and we’re already seeing the trend merge into the interior design space. 

“After years of minimalism, we’re seeing people move away from the same neutral colour scheme and opting for decor that reflects their own personal style. We’re confident that we’ll see more and more people adopting a ‘girlcore’ approach this year.”

So, how do you jump on the ‘girlcore’ trend?

Tom says, “To embrace the ‘girlcore’ trend in your home, immerse yourself in a palette of pastel hues, incorporating soft pinks, lilacs and mint greens. Take inspiration from Maude and try upcycling your kitchen cabinets in a light pink shade, with brass hardware to match, as a warm and elegant finishing touch. 


“Texture plays a key role, so introduce cosy elements like velvet cushions and faux fur rugs. Vintage decor also brings character to your living space, scout charity shops and Facebook marketplace for retro furniture or quirky decor pieces. Feminine accents like ruffles, lace and bows further enhance the ‘girlcore’ allure. Finally, infuse the space with personal touches – framed photos or cherished trinkets – making it uniquely yours within the girlcore aesthetic.”
