(Bedroom by Perifio Interiors;

Now that we’ve all adjusted to spending so much time both living and working in our homes, there is more importance than ever on making these spaces as functional and, especially, comfortably livable than ever before. 

So it’s no shock that the biggest design trends that we’ll see in 2023 are all about creating spaces that bring people comfort, inspire creativity, and reflect our individual personalities all at once. 

Moody Colors

Color experts agree that moody, darker shades are in for 2023. These intense shades are meant to provoke emotions and stimulate senses. Deeply imbued versions of earth tones, like terracotta, and deep purples and blues have replaced the neutral palette that has dominated design over the last few years. 

Soft Shapes with Rich Textures

In 2023, rounded edges and sculptural curves continue to bring softness to a space. Saturated colors, sumptuous textures, and subtly mismatched patterns are layered for a warm, inviting feel. Velvet is a popular fabric in 2023, particularly in vibrant shades that make a statement.

Focus on Craftsmanship

Craftsmanship is taking the spotlight in 2023, particularly in woodworking. In addition to vintage, handcrafted and even ornately carved furniture, prestinly designed wood walls and ceilings are a growing trend. 

Biophilia, Evolved

Biophilia has become a growing discipline within interior design, particularly spurred on by the pandemic when we longed for a connection to nature.

Bringing greenery into our homes in creative ways and fostering indoor/outdoor living continues to be a priority in interior design. However, filling a room with plants or installing a green wall is not the only way to bring the outside in. 

As seen above, Marina Hanisch Interiors planted tall, thick bushes adjacent to the exterior side of the windows for this living room, ensconcing the space in living greenery in a reimagined way.

Interiors have become reflections of the inhabitant’s individuality. Bold choices, such as wild pops of color for fixtures and appliances, and the mixing and matching of different styles, and quirky details. are embraced.

Bathrooms as Wellness Spaces

Wellness in home design is another trend that has been growing over the last few years, as our homes become our refuge, offices, and entertainment spaces.  

While integrating wellness into design is an overall theme that will continue to shape interior design for the coming years, bathrooms are an easy place to start, with spa features and quiet, reflective corners becoming a must-have. 

Single Slabs

Stone continues to be a favored material in 2023, with bold, single slabs used to create a dramatic effect. While marble is a common go-to, domestically mined stone, such as quartzite, can also provide brilliant effects while being a more sustainable choice. 

Ever-changing Interior Design Trends

Interior design trends are ever-changing, but these are some of the most important ones to keep in mind as we navigate 2023. Making smart, bold choices while fostering natural beauty not only allows designers to follow today’s trends but makes their client’s homes timeless with the right pieces and practices.
