2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year for interior design, with a focus on sustainable materials & natural elements, along with with a variety of new trends emerging like mixed materials and bold statement-making pieces. Here are six interior design trends to keep an eye on this year:
1. Sustainable materials:
As people become more conscious of their impact on the environment, there is an increasing demand for sustainable materials in home design. Expect to see more natural fibres, such as bamboo, cotton, and linen, as well as reclaimed and repurposed materials.
This trend is all about bringing the natural world into your home through the use of plants, natural materials, and earthy colours. In your furniture and your finishes use natural elements such as wood & stone, along with plenty of plants. These materials add a sense of warmth and tranquility to any space, and will increase your connection to nature.
3. Bold, statement-making pieces:
Whether it’s a colourful piece of art, a bright and colourful rug, or a statement lighting fixture, bold pieces add visual interest and personality to a space.
4. Mixed materials:
Mixing different materials, such as metal and wood, or concrete and marble, can add depth and interest to a space. In the past, it was common to stick to one metal finish throughout a home. However, mixing different metal finishes will create a layered and unique look like the most seasoned interior designers. This trend is all about experimentation and playfulness.
5. Curated vintage:
As we continue to see a resurgence of vintage and retro styles in fashion, this trend is also making its way into home decor. These pieces can add character and history to a space, and can be a great way to create a unique and personal home.
6. Textured fabrics:
From velvet to wool to boucle, textured fabrics are becoming increasingly popular in home and your favourite commercial environments. These fabrics add a sense of depth and warmth to a space and can be used in everything from cushions to bedheads and banquette seating.
Overall, these emerging trends reflect a desire for something different along with a connection to nature and a focus on sustainability, as well as a willingness to experiment with new materials and styles. It’s an exciting time for interior design, and we can’t wait to see how these trends evolve in your homes over the next 12 months.
