home decor trends 2023 - interior design trends 2023

We know, we know -- not another set of trends that soon go out of style, right? However, this list is not that. Among the many interior design trends that expert decorators have forecasted for 2023, we've spotted five that are so beautiful and livable, they should actually stay for good!

These home decorating fashions can make your home feel utterly cozy, thoughtful, and personal, so if you're thinking of refreshing your home this coming year, read on for fab ideas!


1. Biophilia

Biophilic design is all about reconnecting humans to the natural world. Studies show that staying close to nature provides many benefits such as better mental and physical health, so it's no wonder that more people today crave the natural and the organic.

Even in the confines of a contemporary house or a modern condo in the city, we can still make design and decor choices that are biophilic. Think raw natural materials such as wood, concrete, and stone; 'slow' items such as handcrafted furniture (as opposed to mass-produced ones); and salvaged or foraged decorations. If you're starting with a smaller budget, filling your space with sunlight and plants is a great start!

2. Soft muted colors

Though some color brands chose bold shades as their Color of the Year 2023, another group of experts see the rise of subtler shades for the coming seasons. For example, Sherwin-Williams picked an almost-pastel pinkish-brown called Redend Point as their Color of the Year, a shade like that of the couch above.

According to interior designer Linda Hayslett in Good Housekeeping, "People are starting to embrace colors, but not in the bold, vibrant hues. They are starting to value different shades [...] that are seen as more earthy and calming." We say that's the perfect balance: a splash of color that's cheerful but still soothing!

3. Small 'jewel box' rooms

"Jewel box" is such a fab and fitting name for rooms packed with glamorous style. In recent years, we've seen this decorating approach applied to small spaces: sitting rooms, bathrooms, powder rooms, and entryways decorated so elegantly that they become little pockets of splendor.

Interior designer Tiffani Baumgart noted that even laundry rooms are now "going glam with shimmery finishes, richly patterned details, and even whimsical accessories."

But don't let the opulent look fool you -- transforming your space into a jewel box room doesn't have to break the bank. Start with three budget-friendly elements: a lush paint color for your wall, a patterned rug or wallpaper, and a metallic statement lamp. From there, you can layer on some complementary cushiness like throws, drapes, and your favorite shiny tchotchkes.

4. Maximalism with personal objects

Stark minimalism is out, personalized maximalism is in! This decorating style isn't just about filling your home with colors and textures, but about filling it with things you love and objects that are meaningful to you. Hang those gallery pictures, display those collectibles and vintage heirlooms, and pile on those throw pillows and blankets!

Interior stylist Colin King shares this tip in Elle Decor: "There is a return to maximalism, and I find that when arranging objects, I am using more and more objects to create a layered feel. Whether grouping by a similar color or material, I look for complementing forms with varying heights to create compositions that feel loose and evoke a sign of life.”

5. Sustainable home

Environmental sustainability is now much more than a buzzword -- it's a priority that many designers emphasize in their works. "Consumers are becoming more mindful of choosing environmentally friendly options, and rightly so," says designer Joshua Smith in Veranda. "People are increasingly asking ‘where is this made,’ ‘how is this made,’ etc."

Sustainability is indeed about habits and things that have the least impact on the environment. Buying less plastic is a great first step! In home decorating, we're seeing more beautiful yet sustainable objects like glass containers, bamboo kitchen implements, natural woven baskets, and paper decor.
