2023 is finally here and people are wondering: What will be the design trends of 2023? In this blog, we will discuss our predictions. When the pandemic arrived we were all stuck in our homes. This shift caused many of us to seek solitude and rest in our daily lives, making out homes a sanctuary where we could hide away from the world. With most of our time spent indoors, cultivating a zen home became a top priority. And with 2023 upon us, design choices continue to encourage comfort and stability at home. Here are the top predicted 2023 decorating trends.

Eco-Conscious Homes

In 2023, consumers will design spaces that feel in harmony with the natural world while still being super-chic and upscale. Expect a pivot from synthetic materials, like acrylic, to organic, layered textures this is a design trick that boosts serenity. We predict an elevated approach to minimalism that combine simple silhouettes and natural materials, leading consumers to seek out earthy wood options like mango wood and oak. As consumers and home experts advocate for greener homes, sustainable design will remain top of mind, encouraging renewable materials like wool, cotton, bamboo, linoleum, and cork across design elements like flooring, furniture, textiles, and building materials.

Holistic Design

Corresponding with nods to nature, interior design that closely considers a homeowner’s mind and body is a growing category. People are going to think more about how the interior design of a house makes them feel and, from there, dive into how design can make them happier, healthier, and more productive in their space. This can range from how color affects mood to how lighting impacts daily productivity. The desire to dig deeper into the relationship between home and the health and happiness of its inhabitants will dominate all design decisions in 2023.

Rich Saturated Hues

Deep reds, browns, and greens will also take the spotlight in 2023. We predict an uptick of red shades coming in the future. Some have been hesitant to incorporate red into their homes, but with everyone out and about again and traveling, people are being bolder and more fearless in their selections. We’ve seen this prediction bloom already with Raspberry Blush, a cheerful red-orange shade chosen as Benjamin Moore’s pick for the 2023 color of the year.

Multi-Purpose Interiors

In 2023, rooms must serve multiple functions. It’s important to develop flexible interiors wisely and purposefully. A kitchen isn’t just a kitchen; it’s a place for entertaining and a homework station on weekdays. For this reason, multi-use areas are increasingly in demand. It’s great to see what our interiors can do for us and our lifestyles.

At-Home Oases 

Consumers will also look to their spaces to create a vacation-like retreat. Expect a turn away from the white and monochromatic. People are looking for a place that creates a sense of wonder and escape. As many people start traveling again post-pandemic, homeowners are bringing specific pieces from their travels back home with them, says Sanders. People are eager to have homes that speak of themselves and thier experiences rather than muted and minimal designs of the past.
