Out with the old and in with the new as they say. Today, we’re talking about interior design trends. There are quite a few that professionals in the field are saying will make it big this year. We’ve included below the ones we’re excited to see!
Silver and Iron Accents
When it comes to metal finishes, brass has been the darling of interior design for quite a few years now. It’s often used to give a subtle elegance and warmth to a space, especially if the rest of the décor leans modern. But, are designers ready for something new? For 2023, you may be seeing more silver and iron accents in spaces too.
“We have and will continue to see iron details on furniture like side tables, coffee tables, consoles, and benches. It will make a more prominent appearance in 2023 within decor—think candlesticks, mirrors, decorative bowls, et cetera,” interior designer Jake Arnold told Vogue.
Cap off the end of a long workweek with a relaxing evening in the shower—or bath if you’re lucky enough. More and more of us are turning our bathrooms into a place to unwind and destress. So much so that it’s coming up in design trend reports, according to Architectural Digest. It’s not surprising with all that’s happening in the world and the pandemic being at the top of the list.
Want a more spa-like bathroom as well? Try sticking to a calm color palette for the space. (We’re got loads of blog posts you can take inspiration from here.) Having indoor plants, if your bathroom does not get a lot of natural light, helps a lot as well. Lastly, keep it clutter-free but well-stocked with your favorite bath products and scents.
Less Fast Furniture
Here’s something to learn from Gen Z: being more eco-conscious when it comes to furniture and décor. As Gen Z start to turn into young adults with jobs and homes of their own, we’re starting to get an idea of what their shared preferences are in terms of home styling and décor.
For one, Gen Z is big on buying thrifted and upcycled pieces—and the older generations are following their lead. “In the fight against fast furniture and the disposable, it’s never been more important to buy things that are meant to last,” interior designer Robin Standefer also told Vogue. Want to make the shift too? A good place to start is by supporting locally made furniture like handcrafted, beautiful pieces made of rattan and bamboo.
If you didn’t believe us when we first said it, we’ll say it again: warm neutrals are on trend. And, it seems like they’re only going to get bigger in 2023, says Elle Décor. Think of hues like beige, brown, and cream. But why go for warm neutrals? Because they can make your home feel cozy and welcoming in comparison to cool colors like stark white.
White on walls can easily feel too harsh and bright. Interior designer Fawn Chang explained the effect in her Color Confidence course, “White, unchecked by warmth, can become cold and harsh, rigid, over-energizing, and depleting.” So, enter warm neutrals! Here are some blog posts for home inspo:
