1. The Influence Of The Natural World
It's fair to say, that one of the biggest inspirations for many when it comes to interior design is the beauty of the natural world. From color palettes rooted in nature to the warmth of wood and the durability of natural stone, establishing an indoor-outdoor feel in the home can be both calming and relaxed and uplifting and energizing simultaneously.
2. Layered Lighting
Piero de Marchis, director at Detail Lighting says, 'homeowners are paying far more attention to the way spaces in the home make us feel, as well as their function. Our homes are having to work harder for us than ever before, with an increase in spaces having multiple functions.
3. Plenty Of Textural Elements
Using texture in interior design will be at the forefront of our decorating decisions in 2023. More and more of us want to create a home filled with cossetting and cocooning exuberance, and quite simply, without texture, a space will fall flat, it is the perfect way to add depth, dimension, and decadence to a room.
4. Seek Out Sustainable Options
Mor Krisher, head of design at Caesarstone says, 'as designers we need to be the ambassadors of sustainability and the design community should be on the front line of this issue. If we don’t design with sustainability in mind, then consumers won’t have the ability to purchase sustainable products.'
5. Curves And Arches
Sharp angles have been making their way out of homes for a while, starting with upholstery and moving through to surfaces and architectural details. Now, organic curves and fluid forms are taking center stage in everything from lighting to sofa trends and more.
6. Warming Neutrals
The extensive use of gray and beige are amongst some of the worst trends of 2022 and one of the interior design trends we are quiet-quitting for 2023.
7. Statement Stoneware
The beauty of natural materials such as travertine and marble is undeniably timeless. Most commonly used for bathroom ideas and kitchen ideas, 2023 will see statement stoneware used across the home, from sculptural stone side tables in a bedroom to a stand-out marble fireplace in a living room.
8. A Union Of The Old With The New
Alfred Newall says, 'design trends are ever-changing, but the way we make furniture is centuries old. My hope is that we marry the modern with the traditional.’
9. Color Confidence
'The past few years have dramatically changed people’s approach to their interiors and we are seeing consumers really finding their own sense of color confidence in their homes,' says Ruth Mottershead creative director at Little Greene.
10. Handmade, Artisan Designs
With thoughtful, sustainable design a key focus for 2023, as well as a nod to more nostalgic designs, these 'trends' will not only lead to us shopping more responsibly, but it will also see a rise in 'shopping small', and celebrating handmade, artisan designs and craftsmanship from all over the world.
