2023 is the year of going bold with your interior design choices. From dramatic finishes and bold colors to unexpected furniture design and more, we're excited about what we see coming in the year ahead.
When it comes to design, we're all for breaking the rules and doing things your own way. And while we don't necessarily believe in universally right or wrong trends across the board, we do find joy in scouting out what brings us the most joy when it comes to interiors. So in the spirit of looking ahead into the design pipeline, here is what we think we'll be seeing a lot more of in 2023.
We're saying goodbye to the days of landlord-beige and creamy whites to welcome in bright, joyful colors at home. Expressing yourself through color in design is one of our favorite ways to liven up a space—and yes, there are other ways to incorporate color into your home besides through painting (although we are very pro-paint!). You can weave bold colors into your home's palette through pillows, artwork, and even smaller accessories like coasters or vases. If you can paint your walls but don't want to go through the hassle of doing every single wall, try painting an accent wall, door, or window trim to add a surprise, colorful element.
If your Instagram feed lately has been flooded with dramatic marble interior design, it's because marble is having a moment right now. Traditionally, we're used to seeing marble in small doses, like on a kitchen countertop or maybe on a bathroom floor. Now we're noticing designers and everyday design enthusiasts go bolder with their choices by creating large-scale marble vignettes at home. Although the price point on going big with marble finishes is inaccessible for most of us, we're all for people making bolder decisions in design! We'll be daydreaming about this look for a while.
We'll be the first to admit that we love all things wavy and squiggly, but the curves we see in design lately are a little different than our beloved Gustaf Westman mirror. We're noticing more freeform, organic shapes that feel irregular yet balanced in design. From curved sofas and kidney-shaped coffee tables to asymmetrical mirrors and rugs, there has been an uptick in these curvy pieces, and we're all about it.
There are several benefits to having plants fill your space indoors. Plants improve air quality, reduce stress, and they also look good while doing it! We've loved noticing the shift from furnishing homes with regular everyday house plants to purchasing more exotic, large-scale plants like a Dracaena Reflexa. Using taller trees in your room's design will also amplify the scale of everything, making your room feel much bigger.
