2023's Most Popular Trends: 10 ideas of Home Decor to Try This Year
Blogkoopedia - With the new year approaching, I've been researching the 2023 decorating trends and design styles that I'll be sharing with you. I enjoy looking at interior design trends for each year, my favorite trends tend to be those that I believe will continue past the next few months. Also fortunately, most of the decorating ideas on this list should endure over time, making them more practical to adopt.
Before we discuss interior design trends for 2023, as always, I recommend decorating your home in a way that makes you feel comfortable. As a result, don't feel obligated to subscribe to these concepts if they don't align with you or complement the design of your home. In reality, I don't think it's a good idea to leap on every new trend in homes that comes along.
However, it's impossible to go wrong by observing the current trends and styles in design, this increases your knowledge of what's available.
What are the most popular decorating trends for homes in 2023?
In the following year, we'll see a mixture of new and returning trends. Some of the most popular interior design trends in 2023 include the return of bold colors, natural stone surfaces, enclosed floor plans, mixed metal finishes, luxurious living, statement lighting, and 60s and 70s influences, particularly in furniture design.
Several topics are being utilized in interior design, the "elevated" theme is prominent in 2023 and will be found throughout this article. Luxury looks, sumptuous fabrics, and understated elegance are present, regardless of the decorating style you prefer.
While the decorating trends for 2023 are diverse, they all have the potential to enhance beauty, comfort, and style in your home in the following year.
What pieces of furniture are popular in 2023?
Because of the manufacturing and shipping delays experienced over the past couple of years, the 2023 furniture styles will tend to mirror trends from last year. This implies that we still observe a lot of curves and fleshy materials, as well as rattan and cane, boucles and sherpa, light and burl wood.
Curved, rounded, and slope-armored furniture is still popular, but interior designers are opting to forgo the 2021-2022 curves and instead favor more traditional, classic furniture shapes in 2023 and beyond.
Additionally, if you're purchasing a large piece of furniture for 2023, such as a sofa or bed, you may want to choose timeless fabrics like linen, cotton, performance fibers, or velvet instead of boucle' or sherpa - I think the popularity of nubby fabrics in upholstery will diminish in the near future.
If you truly appreciate the aesthetic of boucle' and sherpa, you can do so via pillows, benches, throws, or ottomans instead in your home.
Is the farmhouse style fad over by 2023?
Today's popular farmhouse decor is still popular, however, in 2023, we will continue to see this style evolve into a more refined style, taking elements from modern European, Belgian, coastal, and Scandinavian styles. This modernized version of farmhouse style is elevated, and will not slow down in the near future.
However, the original version of modern farmhouse style has been around for a few years now, and it no longer feels modern. Even Chip and Joanna Gaines are now engaged in more advanced practices today.
With the addition of luxurious textures, intriguing shapes, natural elements, and a mixture of antique and modern pieces, farmhouse style is maturing into a timeless, classic aesthetic.
What styles of interior design will be popular in 2023?
By 2023, the focus of interior design will increasingly shift from trends to individual expression. Rather than trends being either up or down, we're seeing styles merge.
For instance, modern minimalist design typically employs simple lines, neutral tones, and black elements. On the other hand, maximalist design is characterized by complex textures, color, and antique pieces. However, we observe both approaches to design that utilize natural materials, such as wood, stone, wool, linen, and rattan, as well as numerous other trends on this list.
With the distinction between decorating styles blurring, you're permitted to create your own interpretation of any style you choose, which leads to a more personal approach to interior design and decor in 2023.
2023's Home Decor Trends and Design Styles
Follow me for my predictions of home decor trends and interior design styles for 2023, including decorating trends for kitchens, furniture, the living room, colors, and a look ahead to the winter and spring 2023 decorating trends.
You'll see below that most of these decorating ideas would work in almost any room in the house, and with almost any decorating style, making them simple to alter to your home.
Trend 1. Luxurious living
Luxurious living and elevated thinking will be the norm in 2023, and you'll see this reflected in every aspect of the list.
Elegant living isn't necessarily expensive or fancy — it's instead about refinement and a more elevated approach to decorating and living. It entails creating spaces that feel luxurious, sophisticated, and timeless — however that appears to you.
The luxurious look isn’t about glamorous, sparkly, mirrored, or glowing spaces. Instead, you'll see rooms that are filled with warmth, calmness and composure, plush cushioned seating, soft rugs, layered lighting, and pillows and throws that are luxurious.
You may wish to interpret the 2023 design style in a modern space via light-colored tones, simple lines, and luxurious fabrics like silk, linen, and velvet. Considering the contents of Architectural Digest or Restoration Hardware's catalogs can help you with ideas and inspiration.
Alternatively, you may follow this trend by creating a spaces that is more focused, featuring multiple textures, wood tones that are warm, rich colors, and patterns that are grid-like, rugs that are luxurious, and pillows and throws that are luxurious. Ralph Lauren: understated, elegant, and traditional with a contemporary twist.
While these two approaches to the luxe lifestyle trend are distinct, both incorporate natural elements, multiple layers of fabric and textures, and a love of the finer things in life.
Trend 2. The Re-emergence of Color
Following the recent period of constant neutrals, in 2023 we will see a resurgence in the color of decorations, paint and bed sheets.
Concomitant with the other trends in home ownership in this post, a luxurious color palette of rich jewel tones, soothing greens, timeless blues, and earthy tones will be the most popular in 2023.
Additionally, if you read my post on the Top Color Trends for 2023, you will understand that any color can be utilized in the coming year.
You may decide to pursue this trend via wallpaper in the powder bath, a bold wall color in the office or dining room, or simply by adding a few decorative accents to the living room.
Alternatively, consider alternate arrangements of your bed's bedding, rather than simply having a monochromatic theme. Also, don't be afraid to experiment with mixing different patterns.
Trend 3. Natural stone finishes
Natural stone finishes are popular, particularly those that have unexpected tones and patterns. This trend will continue in 2023.
Some of the most common stone types include travertine, marble, exotic slabs of granite, soapstone, limestone, and other natural materials.
Other than stone coffee tables, countertops, backsplashes, and flooring, methods of incorporating this trend in your home include handcrafted ceramics and pottery, clay vases, stoneware, and dinnerware. Pieces that are imperfect and maintain their natural beauty and character are in high demand right now.
Also on the rise is Zellige tile, this particularly applies to the kitchens and bathrooms. Zellige tiles are made by hand from clay, each one is unique, and retains variations in shimmer, depth and color tone, making them a popular choice for interior designers.
Remember that natural stone surfaces have a certain charm and patina that comes with them, so don't be afraid of the scratches, dents, and stains that are an inherent part of living in and enjoying your home.
Trend 4. Home Retreats
Concurrent with the trend of fine living, people are increasingly turning their homes into retreats, including sumptuous sofas, plush cushions, luxurious bedding, yoga spaces, baths that resemble spas, rock gardens, and quiet spaces for work.
This trend is centered on capturing the emotions of your favorite vacation spot — whether it's a beach house, European villa, or rustic mountain cabin.
As we upgrade our residences in 2023 and beyond, the importance of lighting, sound, tactility, and the design of indoor and outdoor spaces that promote restoration and relaxation will increase.
Some methods of making your home feel like an oasis include including warm woods, linen curtains that are breezy, sumptuous furniture that is sink-in, and objects that are from your travels.
Trend 5. Closed floor plans
The increasing popularity of home and office work has led to the decreasing popularity of open plan designs, in 2023, the trend will continue to favor closed spaces with designated work and study areas.
Our final residence had an open floor plan, the entire living room, dining area, and kitchen were visible when someone walked into the front door. That type of home plan is great for family reunions, but it wasn't ideal for our lifestyle. As a result, we chose a floor plan that was closed during the construction of our present residence.
If your current residence has a spacious floor plan, you may want to partition it more to facilitate additional functions. You can do this by rearranging furniture to help define the different functions of each space - For instance, the sofa is positioned with its back toward the kitchen and dining area, as illustrated below:
Other screens can be employed to isolate specific areas and provide additional privacy.
Trend 6. Mixed Metal Coatings
Combination of metals is a beneficial method of enhancing the kitchen or bathroom with a contemporary and interesting appearance. In 2023, expect designers and homeowners to both embrace a mixture of different metal finishes for fixtures and hardware.
The days of using just one metallic color in every room have passed. Instead, it's now common to combine different metal finishes, not only in the kitchens and bathrooms, but also throughout the home on surfaces like door knobs, curtain rods, light fixtures, hinges, and more.
Whether you're attempting a sophisticated, modern, timeless, or classic style, mixing metals adds visual interest to your residence and will last through 2023 and beyond.
