With every new year comes an opportunity to think about all that has happened in the last 365 days, as well as a moment to contemplate what is to come – especially in the realm of interior design. In 2023, home décor and design trends are primed to shift, manifesting a whole new wave of aesthetics. Here is a guide with all you need to know about the top 2023 trends to come!
Indoor arches were the most sought-after architectural feature of 2021 and continued on through 2022. There’s no doubt that they will continue to steal the spotlight in 2023. These gentle curves are softening the hardest edges that have proliferated for so long. This upcoming year is all about beautiful, continuous curves so don’t feel like you need to stick to modern straight lines. You can use arches as a motif in decorating or a shape for windows and doorways if you are renovating. If you’re on a budget with no need to remodel, trying adding some arched mirrors or curved touches to achieve the same look and feel.
2. sCULPTURAL FURNITURE
Whether it be plump and rounded sofas, chairs and tables in artistic shapes – this trend is all about furniture that goes beyond function into the world of abstract art. It can be found in a variety of materials from marble to glass, metal to wood, or plastic to upholstery. Whether you are looking to switch up some furniture or revamp an entire room, sculptural furniture is bound to make a statement in your home.
3. statement STONES
Natural stone has been a common choice for countertops, backsplashes, and flooring for a while now but is about to be a lot more venturesome in 2023. The hunger for idiosyncrasy, color, and pattern is taking shape in the form of vivid and boldly striated stone. Im not just talking kitchens, but in all corners of the home. Think laundry rooms, waterfall countertops, and full sink basins. Bold natural stone can create a focal point in any room and is sure to add a touch of drama.
4. mixed eras
Some of the most impactful spaces are the ones that effortlessly combine elements from multiple eras, styles, and places. This concept is about to get a lot bigger in 2023. Let’s be honest, there’s something about a room that stimulates your nostalgic senses, all the while creating a balance that renders pure harmony and elegance. Creating a space that looks as though it has evolved over the course of many years. This trend also lends itself to using high/low designs in a home so you will have a mix of price points. So be sure to check out your local consignment shops or community resale for some vintage finds!

5. moody hues
No matter what your style of choice is, moody hues are going to dominate design aesthetics in 2023. Although white interiors have been an industry favorite for quite some time, designers have been dipping their brushes into some darker hues – suggesting a real change in the atmosphere. I know what your thinking – aren’t darker colors going to give off a gloomy, depressing vibe? Well, truth be told, it is actually quite the opposite! Darker hues can add so much interest to your space by allowing your lighter colored pieces to pop. Your furniture, artwork, and statement pieces will all come to life and take center stage against the moody backdrop.
6. bIOPHILIC DESIGN
Biophilic design is all about highlighting the human connection between nature and the environment. This is shaping up to be a major trend in 2023. Let’s be honest, we live in an ever-changing, chaotic world which is why we all could benefit from the healing powers of nature. That is exactly what biophilic design seeks to harness in our homes and working spaces. Expect to see lots of wood, muted organic tones, and peaceful blues. One of the easiest ways to incorporate this trend into your home through greenery or textures, colors, and shapes that replicate what you might find in nature. Think leather, wood, stone. Or better yet, bring nature indoors by going outside and snipping some branches from your yard. This visual connection with nature will add warmth and zen to your space.
7. PATTERN PLAY
We’ve got a bright and colorful future ahead of us. A major design trend in 2023 is all about about bringing that brightness into your home. Whether it be through bold wallpapers or patterned textiles this trend will add instant dimension and personality to a room. To hop on this trend, consider adorning your walls with some florals, stripes, or whimsical prints. If you’re not ready to commit just yet, take a look at fun patterned pillows that fit your aesthetic while giving your room some charm.
8. scalloped edges
Scalloped edges might not be an emerging trend just yet, but believe me, they will definitely flourish in new ways this year. In the past, scalloped edges have been associated with more preppy and feminine-leaning spaces, but lately, a bolder version has emerged making an appearance in modern homes. When you see them in action it’s clear that these groovy little borders will continue to make literal waves in the world of interiors. Consider adding a few ripples to your own home this year!
