Interior Design Trends to Watch in 2023

Take a look around your home. Is it covered in greige? Maybe it’s super modern and lacks a warm, homey feel. Perhaps, you haven’t updated your home since you bought it! All that can change, and there’s no better time than the beginning of a new year. If your home could use a transformation, big or small, now is the time to start thinking about how you can accomplish this task. To help get you started, here are five interior design trends to watch in 2023. 

Open Floor Plans – The focus of home design in the new year is undeniably creating accessible, inviting spaces. The most effective way to do this is with open floor plans where at least two central rooms in your home are connected rather than separated by floor-to-ceiling walls. You can achieve this look by blending the living room into the dining room, the dining room into the kitchen, or having one continuous flow through all three! The result is a warm, welcoming, and cohesive layout.

Multi-Purpose Rooms – In addition to maximizing your space through an open floor plan, you’ll also want to determine which rooms serve best as multi-purpose spaces. When it comes down to it, it is no longer feasible to allocate individual rooms to the variety of chores, tasks, and interests you and your family have. Instead, adapt your central living spaces to meet everyone’s needs. For instance, don’t just use the kitchen for cooking and meal prepping. Make sure you’re entertaining guests and creating new memories in the space as well. Through slight but substantial changes — inserting a large central island where everyone can gather, hanging pendant lights to set the right mood, or arranging various seating options — you can create a stylized, sensible space that meets all your needs.

Holistic Design – Over the past couple of years, many people have started taking holistic approaches to everything they do, including how they design their homes. If you’re interested in making these types of mind-body connections in your living spaces, there are a few things to consider. First, you’ll want to think about how color impacts mood, how natural light increases productivity, and how organization lowers stress. Then, you can choose the color palettes, light fixtures, and window treatments that work best for you. Update your space accordingly, and you’ll be on your way to creating a peaceful haven.

Rich Colors – Although neutral color palettes aren’t going anywhere in 2023, rich tones will be incorporated more and more. Think deep reds, greens, browns, purples, and blues. If you’re a risk taker, you may consider repainting a room in one of these saturated hues. However, if you prefer to subtly incorporate colors into your home, swap out your current fabric choices for new pieces in these shades. 

Tailored Bohemian Touches – Bohemian is still a dominant home design style, but it is becoming more minimal and curated. What does this mean? You’ll see fewer wall tapestries and floor cushions and more thoughtful design selections. These small touches could be fringed hems on window treatments, beading on a pillow, or an earthy color palette. After all, the boho style celebrates craftsmanship, art, and individuality. You can accomplish this and stay on trend with thrifted finds, vintage pieces, and family heirlooms.
