2. Natural Materials

People are becoming increasingly conscious about the environmental impact of their choices, and that includes home decor. In 2023, we expect to see a rise in the use of natural materials like wood, stone, and rattan in interiors. These materials not only add warmth and texture to a space, but they are also sustainable and eco-friendly. By choosing natural materials over synthetic ones, you can make a positive impact on the environment while also adding stylish elements to your home. Whether it’s through furniture, home decor accessories, or both, natural materials add a touch of rustic charm and bring a sense of the outdoors inside. So if you’re looking to update your home decor in the new year and want to do your part to protect the planet, consider incorporating natural materials into your design plan.

3. Biophilic Design

Biophilic design, which involves incorporating natural elements into interiors, is becoming an increasingly popular trend in home decor. This can be as simple as adding a few plants to your home, or incorporating natural materials like wood and stone. The goal of biophilic design is to create a sense of connection to the outdoors and bring a touch of nature into your home. Not only does this add a visually pleasing element to your space, but it has also been shown to have numerous benefits for our mental and physical well-being. Studies have shown that being in nature or surrounded by natural elements can reduce stress, improve mood, and increase productivity. So if you’re looking to refresh your home decor in the new year and want to add some natural elements, consider incorporating biophilic design into your design plan. Whether it’s through plants, natural materials, or both, a little bit of nature can go a long way in creating a relaxing, restorative environment.

Bring The Outdoors, In

4. Maximalism

Minimalism has been a popular design trend in recent years, but in 2023 we’re seeing a shift towards maximalism – the art of layering and mixing patterns, textures, and styles to create a bold, eclectic look. If you’re someone who loves to express your personality through your home decor, this trend is for you. Don’t be afraid to mix and match and have fun with your spaces. Whether you’re drawn to bold, vibrant colors or more natural, earthy tones, maximalism allows you to mix and match different elements to create a look that is uniquely yours. So if you’re ready to ditch the minimalist aesthetic and embrace your love of bold patterns and textures, maximalism is the trend for you in 2023. Don’t be afraid to take risks and have fun with your decor – the possibilities are endless.

Woven textures, like baskets and rugs, are a great way to add a cozy, bohemian vibe to any space. They bring texture and warmth to a room, and can be easily incorporated through a variety of home decor accessories. In 2023, we expect to see more and more people using woven textures in their home decor, whether it’s through throw blankets, wall hangings, or even furniture. These natural, rustic accents are perfect for creating a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere, and they work with a variety of styles, from traditional to modern.

6. Sustainable Furniture

Sustainability is a top concern for many people when it comes to home decor, and in 2023 we expect to see a continued focus on environmentally-friendly materials and practices. Along with the trend towards natural materials (shout out to our Japandi lovers) like wood and stone, there’s also a growing interest in sustainable furniture. This means an increase in the use of recycled materials, as well as a rise in companies that prioritize sustainability in their manufacturing processes. By choosing furniture that is made from recycled materials or produced in an environmentally-conscious way, you can make a positive impact on the planet while also adding stylish, high-quality pieces to your home. So if you’re looking to refresh your home decor in the new year and want to do your part to protect the environment, consider incorporating sustainable furniture into your design plan.

7. Multifunctional Spaces

With the pandemic leading to more people working from home, there’s been a shift towards creating multifunctional spaces in the home. In 2023, we’ll see more people designing their homes with flexible, versatile spaces that can be used for work, play, and everything in between. This might mean creating a home office that can also be used as a guest room, or designing a living room that can be easily transformed into a home gym. Multifunctional designs can really help play a big role in creating these flexible, versatile spaces in the home. Pieces like fold-out desks and convertible sofas can help to maximize the use of limited space, while also providing the functionality needed for multiple purposes. By choosing multifunctional pieces, you can create a home able to adapt to your changing needs and preferences, without the need for major renovations or costly purchases.
