2023's Must-See Nature-Inspired Interior Design Trends: Embrace the Great Outdoors In the Interior

2023's Must-See Nature-Inspired Interior Design Trends: Embrace the Great Outdoors In the Interior

Are you ready to bring the great outdoors inside in 2023? Because we sure are! We're seeing a growing trend of homeowners and interior designers ditching the sterile, man-made look and opting for something a little more... natural.

Are you ready to bring the outdoors in? 2023 is all about biophilic design, where nature and natural elements take center stage in our homes and workplaces. Think lush plants, warm wood, cool stone, and water and light features. Not only does it look beautiful, but it also has been proven to boost our moods, increase productivity, and reduce stress levels. So, if you want to create a space that's not only visually appealing but also good for your well-being, biophilic design is the way to go this year.

Use of natural materials

First up, we're loving the use of raw materials like wood, stone, and terracotta. These materials are like a warm hug from Mother Nature herself. Imagine snuggling up next to a reclaimed wood accent wall or lounging on a terracotta tiled floor. It's like camping, but with a stellar roof and a toilet. Bonus!

Mixing old and new

Are you ready to spice up your home with a little bit of nostalgia and a whole lot of personality? Mixing old and new is the way to go in 2023. Incorporate vintage and retro elements, like a vintage wooden chest as a side table next to a bouclé sofa, to add character and individuality. Embrace period features, like original wood floors or heritage tiles, and consider using one-off second-hand pieces or upcycled furniture for a high-end bespoke look.

Metallic finishes

Metallics and luxury finishes, like mirrored surfaces, antique mirror finishes, smoked glass, gold, bronze, and brass, will also be big in 2023. Create a luxurious ambiance with statement pieces, like chandeliers, and focus on the smaller details, like candles and lamps, to make it feel personal and inviting.

Speaking of sustainable, wickerwork is making a comeback and taking the design world by storm. From high-end to the high street, it's a perfect way to add chic status and sustainable living ethos to your home.


Texture is also key in 2023, with stone, plaster, ribbed stone tiles, and concrete finishes popping up everywhere. These subtle yet impactful elements can be incorporated as feature walls, furniture, or throughout the whole room.

Indoor plants

And last but not least, indoor plants are the new black. Not only do they purify the air, but they also bring a little bit of life and vitality to a room. Plus, they're like having a pet that doesn't need to be fed or walked. Win-win!
