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.
Rich earthy tones
Earthy tones are the way to go in 2023, with golden hues, ocean blues, sage green, warm reds and purples, set to be popular for creating welcoming and relaxing spaces. Pair these colors with natural materials, like wood and paneling, for a cohesive look.
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.
Organic shapes and textures will also be trending in 2023, with curved furniture and accessories that mirror nature. Embrace hand-crafted elements, like hand-woven fabrics, and focus on craftsmanship for a truly unique and inviting space.
Get ready to add some personality and handmade charm to your home in 2023! Hand-crafted furniture, textiles, and accessories are where it's at. Wall coverings will feature handmade, long-lasting, hand-woven fabrics, painted prints, and bespoke and unique textiles. Personal touches are in, and minimalism is out (kind of). People are looking for pieces that hold a story and make a sustainable statement.
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.
Botanical prints and patterns are having a moment. Whether it's on upholstery, rugs, or wall coverings, these prints are like a breath of fresh air in a room. And let's be real, who doesn't love a little greenery in their life?
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!
