Want to give your space new vigor in the new year? Even if a total renovation isn’t on your radar, there are several ways to inject of-the-moment style and lasting character to a room. If you’ve been searching for ways to refresh your home, keep reading for the top anticipated trends predicted for 2023.
#1: Moody Paint Colors Are the New White
For the last decade, the design industry standard was a clean, colorless look. The contemporary Scandinavian styles have started to take a back seat to bold, moody paints ranging from emerald to charcoal to eggplant. Instead of the airy, open-plan vibe with one or two neutral paint colors throughout the whole home, many designers are treating each room like a distinct “mood” and opting for dramatic paint colors that reflect it.
#2: Plants Are Here to Stay
A shift toward lush greenery and live plants became increasingly popular in 2020, as people spent a significant amount of time indoors. Now, plants are often intentionally incorporated into interior design. Plants bring an organic, natural look to a space and can add a layer of texture that feels welcoming. While real plants can help increase a room’s oxygen, faux options are still chic for those who don’t boast a green thumb.
#3: Simplified Living Will Be Emphasized
Whether it’s shifting paper files and records to a Cloud-based software, getting rid of unused formal spaces, or opting for less-is-more approach to decor, streamlining and simplifying is the name of the game in 2023. Simplified spaces tend to foster calm feelings — a welcomed antidote to the chaos and busyness of the modern world. Cluttered rooms can contribute to a cluttered mind, which is especially undesirable if you work from home.
#4: Repurposing is Having A Moment
One positive trend that’s continuing to gather momentum is the lost art of repair, renewal, and repurposing. As more people and brands are becoming aware of the detrimental effects of hyperconsumerism, many are making an effort to repurpose where possible. Not only does this save money, but it keeps excess “stuff” out of landfills and oceans.
One way to do this: Frame an existing mirror. With Add a Frame®, you're able to add instant polish and style to a space while giving an existing mirror a second life. It's an economical, Earth-friendly way to repurpose what you have and still achieve a professional, polished look.
#5: Different Colored Trim Is In
For a fun, stylish contrast, many homeowners and interior designers are painting trim a different color than the wall. It makes a fun statement and adds a bit of embellishment without changing the structure of the room. Bank on seeing this much more in 2023 and beyond.
#6: Gold Is Back
After a stint of cool tones and starkly white color palettes, the design world is welcoming back warm colors. Included in the mix: gold finishes. Gold adds a warmth that is lacking in its brushed nickel and stainless steel counterparts. From door handles and drawer pulls to decorative mirrors, gold will be the go-to in the coming year.
Are you loving these forecasted trends? Remember that at the end of the day, the only trend that matters is the one that feels right to you. Style your home in a way that makes you happy, and your design will be a success every time.
