The start of a new year can mean a new start, taking different paths. It can mean a move towards significant discoveries and clear ideas. 2023 promises to be an intense and creative year In the interior design sector, according to the annual trends revealed by leading professionals in the field. They hail a new beginning that opens up a path to luxury and exclusivity. Yet without neglecting the purest most natural materials– like stone. Another trend will see the chromatic calm of mauve or copper in 2023. In addition, organic textures like cotton or minimalist interior wall coverings will also be in vogue.
So this year of 2023 will be one of homes full of comfort and love. This will be evident in the shape and forms of furniture, textiles, decorative elements and the growing presence of indoor plants.
Nature’s presence in the home is stronger than ever
It is clear that when a trend works and contributes to the atmosphere of a room, its presence in the home will continue, in response to the needs of those living there. In this regard, the inclusion of natural vegetation in the home has been an essential component of the living space. This works at both decorative and emotional levels. Natural plants remain a key trend for interior design in 2023, as they bring warmth to any room.
Regarding natural elements, materials like ceramic and especially stone, will have a greater presence in 2023. These are always in keeping with a traditional essence and organic forms, with vases, candles and decorative figures in these materials. As such and although presented in nude shades, subtle colours are beginning to appear in ochre and lavender tones. And in addition, textures that demonstrate the creative liberty shown by their designers. In this way, all the details that make up the home become subtle works of art that reflect the intimacy and exclusivity of their craftsmanship. Similarly, other sustainable materials like terrazo, quartz or natural wood continue to play an important role in home trends for 2023.
Nature continues to feature in textiles too. In 2023, tapestries made from organic materials, mainly cotton, velvet or wool, will continue to have a place in home trends. However, one thing that stands out in this New Year is that textile elements will also adopt a clear chromatic singularity. There will also be a move away from the pure neutrality of previous years, including prints with geometric or floral motifs. These will be evident in cushions, covers, curtains and rugs. As a result, the home continues to be a place of calm and tranquillity. A haven of security and comfort.
Chromatic emotionality and trending colours.
Emotions and feelings are also prominent in the various colour schemes that will dominate 2023. These are colours that feature in natural elements and will pulse with a positive energy in today’s homes. Thus, the dusty pinks of previous years give way to warm and soothing lavenders in a range of shades. From mauves and purples to violet tones where the intensity of nature merges with subtle designs, achieving a more sophisticated style.
Earthy tones also continue to play an important role in interior design. However, these will be strong and vibrant. Earthy ochre tones with flashes of copper or gold make their way into home details, bringing definition and personality to the room.
Curved morphologies in the home
Curves continue to play a key role in various home furnishings. The presence of curves can be found in elements such as mirrors, windows, furniture and doors. These shapes are not confined to one specific room, but proliferate throughout the home, even in bedrooms inviting an air of peace and repose to these spaces.
Also on trend are quilted chairs, where the curve is synonymous with comfort, elegance and emotion. In this way chairs with velvety textures and vibrant colours will be part of designs that enhance individual intimacy. On the other hand, introducing circular shelves in the style of a Renaissance alcove could be a key factor in providing an eclectic touch to a home.
Exclusivity, glamour and luxury through decoration
If one thing characterises interior design in 2023, it is the exclusivity and glamour that pervades living spaces. This contrasts with previous years that have favoured minimalist and austere homes, highlighting the importance of the material. Now, in 2023, nature becomes luxurious through exclusive designs and subtle indoor pieces.
Maximalism has come to predominate in terms of size. As such, maximalism blends to perfection with the austerity of ornamental elements. In this way the room does not appear overloaded, but presents a defined and contrasted spaciousness. Accordingly, a trend that will increase from 2023 onwards is decorative wall coverings that bring warmth and a clear sense of exclusivity thanks to their design. Nevertheless, it is important to bear in mind that, despite their impressive beauty, one factor that marks out an era is sustainability.
Notwithstanding, the predilection for sustainably produced materials and elements – rather than a simple trend – has become a commitment. And it is one that is present both in current architecture and interior design. Consequently, artisanal manufacture, as well as production with renewable energies and recycled materials, takes centre stage to offer a future that is fully respectful of the environment. This is the way towards sustainability that is increasingly seen in homes today.
