2023 Interior Design Trends

2023 Interior Design Trends

Trends in interior design may not come and go as quickly as fashion trends, but something new always emerges to inspire us. Whether we just moved and want to start from scratch or we just want to upgrade and update our space, it’s good to know what are the latest interior design trends as quickly yet neatly, as soon as they get home?

Grounding with Earthy Tones

Back in October, we had already written about the Colour of 2023, Wild Wonder. Wild wonder is perfect for a luxurious yet peaceful interior. Natural elegance will be a protagonist this year in people’s homes, as earthy colour tones and palettes are becoming super popular this year. After Covid, people learnt to re-evaluate their homes and treat them like sanctuaries. Now that “remote” and “cocooning” are no longer a necessity, they are becoming a chosen lifestyle for some. Calming earthy tones, on the walls and in different textiles, bring a grounded and calm aura and leave a large opportunity for experimentation with furniture and decorative items that can then better stand out.   

Wellness Reflected

Not far from the grounding idea, self-care and wellness are going to be reflected more and more in our interior designs. Instead of folding and hiding your yoga mat, create a training corner and combine it with some plants or candles. A nice rug for a peaseful reading corner is always a good idea and creates a “room inside of a room” effect which gives the illusion of depth and perspective.

Sustainable and Green

This is not new but a favorite classic and will keep running in 2023… and stronger than before. Natural wood finishes are becoming increasingly popular as consumers look for products that have minimal environmental impact. At the same time, items made of vintage and recycled materials are small makeovers that achieve a biophilic interior design.

That 70s Flashback

Among the earthy tones mentioned above, there is  brown, red, orange and terracotta. Do those colors remind you of vintage movie frames? Add to that furniture with soft angles and curves, as well as low lighting with mushroom-type lamps. At the same time and in addition to wood, cork and wicker elements will contribute to sustainable decoration this year. The 70s will return this year to radiate warmth and comfort.

Personality Display

Antiques, paintings, statement pieces, books and albums, sculptures and records, are being displayed this year for everyone to admire, ask and learn about. It is all about sharing your cherished interests and giving an honest glimpse of your personality not digitally to the world, but physically and intimately to your visitors. Your house is not just bricks and mortar, it has a soul and most of the time it resembles yours.

What we will not be seeing:

This year we are saying farewell (and please don’t come back) to:

  • All Black and White (and grey…) Interiors.
  • Floating Shelves
  • Dominant Glassand Metals
  • Fast Fashion Furniture
  • Farmhouse Aesthetic (it’s burned out)
  • Extra-Royal Aesthetic (was that ever cool?)

What are we left with this year? 2023 is the year we take a deep breath in and out. The statement of serenity, calmness, wellness and openness is pretty clear and will definitely be reflected inside many homes.

“We would like to express our gratitude for the time you invested in helping us get to a clear picture.  Anna and I really appreciated the call we had with you, your responsiveness, and the great empathy that you exhibited throughout – we certainly felt very “well taken care of” when engaging with you.  On the practical side, we especially appreciated that there was the option to obtain robust bottom-up cost estimates for the construction itself (not every design architect offers this).”
