Post-Covid life trends are shifting but what does this mean? In short, increasingly people are moving away from the city to regional/rural areas, many are now working from home permanently. This has caused a desire to get back to nature, reduce stress level and encourage a positive mindset.
This shift has affected interior design; we are seeing a shift away from the “show-home” style in favor of a less-manufactured aesthetic. 2023 will be all about increasing convenience, comfort, and personal style.
Check out some of our favorite interior design predictions for next year.
The return or Art Deco – Try curved furniture pieces and dome-style lamps, curved arches, geometric designs in lighting and wallpaper.
Continuing the love for Mid Century Modern – Use period piece furnishings or accessories to blend the design of the existing space with new taste preferences.
Incorporating Vintage / Victorian styles – Incorporate vintage pieces or newly constructed pieces, with the shapes and elements of period pieces.
It’s cost effective, produces less heat and provides the flexibility to get creative with architectural and mood lighting. So, it’s not a surprise that it’s expected to make its mark across all interior design spaces next year.
Emphasis on Wellness
Wellness is a driving factor of design for 2023. Adding elements that help promote self-care and well-being can transform any space into an oasis. Try installing undercounter refrigerators in a home spa, bathroom, living room, or primary bedroom.
Immerse in your favorite color while creating cohesion, drama and impact. When lighter colors, like wood tones, whites, and greys are the main color, a room will feel bright yet calming. Using a dark color will create a moody cozy vibe. In either case, monochromatic design has not been typically done and instantly makes the space look unique and curated. Just make sure there’s a lot of light!
Prepare to lean into authenticity and prioritize joy. Quiet greens and calming blues can combat a tumultuous political landscape, but ultimately, it’s the objects we fill our homes with that hold the most power to ease our anxieties. Maybe it’s your grandfather’s collection of fly-fishing lures, or maybe you’re zealous for antique maps—whatever it is that brings your truest self to your living space is on trend.
Upcycling and Simplifying
Upcoming trends are really inspired by special memories or maybe heirlooms from families, and upcycling is a growing trend right now. But they’re not necessarily enhancing or embellishing on old piece—expect 2023 to involve a lot of paring back.
Traditional Living Room Layouts
The formulaic living room Layout is out. Find a non-traditional layout and fill it with unique, unexpected pieces instead.
I still love gray but it’s warming up in 2023. Warm and neutrals are becoming more popular – especially in living rooms – warm colors, calming blues, peach-pinks and neutrals are catching on.
Natural Wood Grain and Colorful, Painted Cabinetry
Wood cabinetry – Embrace natural wood grain and tone rather than selecting glossy varnish and heavy stain. If an all-wood kitchen is not your thing. Try an island in wood with the perimeter cabinetry painted, or a wooden hutch-style upper cabinet that rests on the counters.
Painted Cabinetry – Personalize your space with color. Greens and blues will continue to trend in 2023, this calms spaces but, you don’t have to stop there. If brighter colors are your thing, make it yours and go for it!
A Secret Butler’s Pantry
A butler’s pantry that is an entire room of its own…Not cool enough? Hide the entrance behind custom cabinetry. This surprise entrance is especially fun when you have a large family or host large gatherings — children as well as adults delight in hidden treasures.
The repeated pattern of Quartz is being replaced with earthy and organic – natural stone, such as, Granite, Marble and Quartzite. Each slab is a work of art.
White Subway Tile
We are seeing a shift away from white subway tile to bright, bold tiles that add color to the kitchen.
We noticed a trend in larger, more sculptural fixtures in 2022. Now, people are becoming more adventurous with their lighting choices and taking advantage of them as a statement design element.
