As the end of the year approaches, it’s time to begin thinking about what the New Year has in store. If you’re buying or selling a home – or even if you just want to give your home a style refresh – then it’s important to know what design trends the experts are forecasting. We’ve scoured the internet to get an idea of what’s ahead for our homes in 2023 and have chosen some of our favorites.
Wellness has been top-of-mind since the pandemic began in 2020. And experts are forecasting that wellness will continue to be a top priority when it comes to our homes. Home designs in 2023 will emphasize slowing down and embracing mindfulness to create a peaceful and healthier home.
In 2023, we will also incorporate even more natural elements into our homes. Color schemes will be influenced by those found in nature, such as soft greens and warm browns. Furniture and decor will also come from nature, such as live-edge tables, baskets, and plants.
Experts are also predicting that we’ll embrace Art Deco design in 2023. It’s been 100 years since the Roaring 20s and it’s about time the design of that era made a comeback. While minimalism has been a favorite of designers for a long time, many will start including more decorative elements. Look for bright colors, geometric patterns, and symmetrical designs and layouts.
Old is new
Sustainability is on the minds of many homeowners, and that will be reflected in how we choose to decorate and furnish our living spaces in 2023. More people will be turning toward secondhand furniture or beloved family heirlooms that evoke special memories. With inflation fears escalating, more homeowners and designers will be turning to pieces from thrift and consignment stores to score a great deal.
Thanks to Marie Kondo, we all still love to organize and that trend will continue into 2023. While some people have returned to the office, many of us are still working from home. When you spend so much time in your living space, it’s important to keep it clean and organized. We’ll be turning away from open shelves and cabinets with glass doors in a desire to eliminate visual clutter.
Designer laundry rooms
Laundry rooms are no longer dark and dingy dungeons lurking in the basement. They are now being embraced as rooms that are both functional and beautiful. More homes will have designer laundry rooms that echo the aesthetic found in the rest of the home.
Round edges and curves will also make a comeback in 2023. Curved sofas, egg chairs, round rugs, and moon-shaped hardware will become more common. Overall, we’ll see a softening of living spaces and a departure from the straight-line modern aesthetic that has been popular in recent years.
If 2023 were a color, then it would be gold. Experts are predicting that soft golden hues will be hugely popular in the coming year and will complement traditional neutral hues. You’ll find the color on everything from furniture to lighting fixtures to wallpaper.
