It’s a new year, and I think a lot of people are feeling like this one is going to be a different kind of year. Different, meaning better than the last 2 years we’ve all had since the Covid pandemic rocked the world.
Since 2020 there has been a renewed interest in the home and what it means to us as its become not only our sanctuary but also our work place.
Interiors during the last 2 years have leant towards the minimal with muted colour palettes, greys and minimalism being all the rage, this trend driven by the need for calm as the outside world was so hectic.
But in 2023, we’re going to be seeing a whole lot of different. I’m calling this year 2020’s colourful cousin. If it were a person, it would be Interior Designer and Stylist, Iris Apfel!
This year is all about stepping away from the cookie cutter look of display homes and creating spaces that are personality driven, fun, nostalgic and unique.
Some of the exciting interior trends you can expect to see rocking 2023 are:
Mixing the old with the new
the idea of sustainability and renewal hasn’t gone anywhere. So, it’s no surprise that vintage pieces are in high demand.
With the disposable nature of mass-produced furniture and its impact on the environment being shunned, there is a renewed interest in sourcing or re-purposing vintage items as they’re built to last and add a bespoke element to any interior.
With a focus on this year’s style being homes that are character rich and personalised, it’s no shock that the neutral tones that have dominated the last few years are out and colour is in.
If you’re looking to add some boldness to your home this year but not super adventurous with colour, consider adding accents such as cushions or artwork featuring rich emeralds, timeless blues, or warm earthy tones.
Natural stone finishes
Natural stone finishes are big at the moment and saw a massive surge in interest in 2022 for kitchen and bathroom renovations.
This trend for incorporating natural materials in the home will continue into 2023. Particularly materials that feature larger veins and more expressive patterns, such as marble affect stone as it invokes a look of luxury and high-end quality.
If minimal is your style, then you’re not going to love the latest trend to hit the interior world.
Grandmillenial style or ‘Granny Chic’ as it is lovingly known by, is a modern take of the traditional looks that you would see in your grandmother’s house.
Picture feminine floral prints, gingham wallpaper, antiques, fringing and frills. It’s all about melding together traditional elements and modern designs to create an eclectic look that still feels homely.
