2023 is fast approaching, and so we thought it would be a great idea to check out which trends will be dominating our interiors in the coming year, and take a look at some core trend predictions for 2023.
Each season usually brings with it different decoration trends for one’s own four walls, and it’s always exciting to see what designers and consumers think our interior spaces should look like. Next year, generally speaking, it looks like touchscreens, unwelcoming light and cold interiors are ‘out’, while cosy, warm spaces are ‘in’. Meanwhile, there are three themes that show no signs of waning in popularity: wellbeing, comfort and sustainability. Let’s dig deeper and take a look at some core trends for 2023.
Bold colours and patterns
Less is more? Not with this trend, which screams ‘go big or go home’. Embellish your home with bold colours and crazy patterns. It’s finally time to embrace colour, namely strong yellows and greens, bright blues and burgundies. When it comes to patterns, experts argue that mini floral prints will see a comeback next year, while we can expect to see more retro-look patterns and prints too.
Some interiors can look uninviting and uncreative, and this is exactly where ‘60s-style armchairs comes in. In 2023, designers will be putting focus on bringing back single low-level armchairs. Accent chairs can really bring a room together and convey cosiness, whether they come in fabric or with a leather covering.
This trend might not be entirely new, as most of our interiors probably already incorporate somewhat humble, down-to-earth materials such as rattan, jute or sisal. But in 2023, designers will take this look even further and start to incorporate plywood, hemp, burnt wood and terracotta, too. These materials are known to give our interiors warmth, as well as a cool, relaxed, natural look that is going to suit any room.
