With the new year in full swing, we been scouting out the 2023 home decorating trends and design styles to share with you. We love taking a look at each year’s interior design trends — especially the ones we think will last beyond the next few months. And, happily, most of the home decor ideas on this list should stand the test of time, making them easier to adopt.
What are the top home decor trends for 2023?
In the coming year, we’ll see an interesting mix of new and returning trends. Some of the most popular interior design trends for 2023 include quiet luxury, the return of bold color, natural stone surfaces, closed floor plans, mixed metal finishes, statement lighting, and 60s and 70s influences — particularly in furniture design.
What furniture is in style for 2023?
Due to manufacturing and shipping delays over the past couple of years, furniture styles for 2023 will tend to overlap the trends from last year. That means we’re still seeing plenty of curvy shapes and nubby fabrics, as well as rattan and cane, boucle’ and sherpa, light wood and burl wood finishes.
Is farmhouse style out for 2023?
While modern farmhouse decor is still extremely popular, in 2023 we’ll continue to see this style evolve into a more refined look, borrowing aspects from modern European, Belgian farmhouse, coastal, and Scandinavian styles. This elevated version of modern farmhouse style shows no signs of slowing down in the coming year.
What interior design styles are trending for 2023?
In 2023 interiors will increasingly become less about what’s trendy and more about personal expression. Rather than certain trends increasing or declining, we’re seeing different design styles merging.
For example, modern minimalist style typically incorporates clean lines, neutrals, and black elements; while maximalist style favors layered textures, color, and vintage pieces. However, we see both design perspectives embracing the use of natural materials, such as wood, stone, wool, linen, and rattan, as well as many other trends on this list.
Trend 1. Quiet Luxury
Luxurious living and an elevated mindset are where things are headed in 2023, and you’ll see that idea reflected throughout all of the trends on this list. Fine living doesn’t have to mean fancy or expensive — it’s more about refinement and an elevated approach to how we decorate and live in our homes. The quiet luxury trend involves creating spaces that feel sumptuous, sophisticated, and timeless — however that looks for you.
Trend 2. The Return of Color
After the past few years of non-stop neutrals, in 2023 we’ll see a return of color in home decor, paint colors, and bedding. Tying in with the other home trends in this post, a luxurious palette of rich jewel tones, soothing greens, timeless blues, and warm earth tones will dominate in 2023.
Trend 3. Natural stone finishes
Natural stone finishes are having a big moment — particularly materials that incorporate unexpected tones and patterns — and that trend will continue in 2023. Some of the most popular stone elements include travertine, marble, exotic slabs of granite, soapstone, limestone, and other natural materials.
Trend 4. Home retreats
Tying in with the fine living trend, more than ever, people are making their homes feel like a retreat, with things like sumptuous sofas, plush cushions, luxurious bedding, spaces to do yoga or meditate, spa-like bathrooms, rock gardens, and quiet places to work becoming must-haves.
This trend is all about capturing the emotions of your favorite vacation spot — whether that’s a beach house, European villa, or cozy mountain lodge.
Trend 5. Closed floor plans
The growing popularity of working and learning from home means that open floor plans are losing their appeal, and in 2023 home design we’ll continue to see closed-concept spaces, with separate places to work, take Zoom calls, and do homework becoming more desirable.
Trend 6. Mixed Metal Finishes
Mixing metals is a great way to add an interesting and contemporary look to the kitchen and bathroom. In 2023, expect designers and homeowners alike to embrace a combination of different metal finishes for fixtures and hardware.
Trend 7. Statement Lighting
In 2023, interior designers and homeowners will trade traditional pendant lights for oversized light fixtures and lighting in interesting shapes.
Trend 8. Natural Materials
This look embraces organic materials such as wool, cotton, silk, rattan and clay in earth tones and warm neutrals.
Trend 9: Black accents
No matter what decorating style you prefer, every space in your home will always benefit from a touch of black.
Trend 10: 60s and 70s Influences
Since our focus is on sharing decorating styles that will last, we almost didn’t include this interior design trend, because we think the current popularity of post-modern 60s and 70s influences (borrowed from current fashion trends) will be somewhat short-lived.
