Top 5 Interior Design Trend Predictions for 2023

The new year has well and truly arrived, and it’s time to make way for the interior design trends set to reign in 2023. As we shift away from minimalism and paired back tones and move into a bold new season, homeowners are opting for design features that exude vibrant personality and character. If you’re seeking inspiration as a homeowner or for your next creative production, look no further. We have put together our top 5 interior design trend predictions for 2023.

1. Maximalism

Living through somewhat chaotic times, many homeowners have previously taken refuge in the simple pleasure of neutral tones and minimalistic home design. Enter minimalism’s charismatic cousin Maximalism, to shake things up in 2023. Bringing a new wave of individuality, confidence, and personality to the home, many experts predict Maximalism to make an impactful comeback this year. Gaining popularity in the 70s, we’re seeing a resurgence of mismatched patterns, bright colours and unique vintage items. The best part about maximalism? There truly is no right or wrong, and that is what makes this interior design trend so exciting.

Curved lines and rounded shapes

A key element of Maximalist design is the inclusion of smooth curved lines and rounded shapes, adding harmonious balance to this bold design. It’s all about embracing curves to add a soft contrast to the impactful nature of bright colours and striking prints. We’re already seeing an increase in design features such as archways and curved bench tops, and predict this trend to only increase in 2023.

Sculptural furniture

We’re about to see furniture function as artwork, just as much as it does a practical piece. Moving away from the stripped back minimalist style, homeowners are incorporating memorable pieces that take centre stage. Think oversized, patterned and bold sculptural furniture that draws the eye and conveys a unique story. It’s a juxtaposition from what we have seen in previous years with the minimalist trend, but we’re all for this artful resurgence.

2. Jewel tones

It’s out with the crisp whites and neutral beige tones in 2023. Colour is set to make a comeback this year, much through splashes of jewel tones. Hues such as emerald green, ruby red and sapphire blue exude an elegance and moodiness that is becoming an increasingly popular interior design choice. Although striking, these tones convey a sophistication that isn’t completely overwhelming. It’s a wonderful way for homeowners to dip their toes into exploring colour. Whether through statement walls or furniture pieces, we’re predicting jewel tones to continue their upwards trend this year.

3. Bold marble

If there’s one way to make a statement in 2023, it’s with bold marble accents. An art piece in itself, the addition of marble within the home adds character and luxury to any space. The classic neutral toned marble is understandably still trending, but we’re also seeing splashes of colour such as blush pink and deep red. We’re particularly seeing bold marble come through in statement kitchen bench tops and bathroom counters. However, homeowners are also adding unique splashes of marble on interior elements such as feature doors and bars. We predict to see only continued appreciation of this interior design trend as the new year unfolds.

4. Biophilic design

Simply a term for bringing the beauty of nature into architectural and interior design, biophilic design is predicted to be a major trend in 2023. It’s all about bringing the outdoors in as much as possible, and creating a haven within the home. We’re seeing this through the use of earthy textures, abundant plant life and as much natural light as possible. Experts claim that incorporating biophilic elements within interior design can even positively impact productivity and wellbeing.

Raw and natural textures

We are seeing a definite increase in the use of raw and natural textures used throughout the home. Whether it’s wooden accents, natural cane or stone, homeowners are opting for natural elements to create harmony between interior design and nature.

Plant life

There’s no doubt that having abundant plant life within the home not only enhances design, but does wonders for wellbeing. Plants catch the eye, and add a beautiful contrast to their surroundings. From draping vines to indoor cacti, we’re seeing a definite increase in interior plant life and expect this to continue into 2023 and beyond.

Abundant natural light

It’s time to let the light in this year. We’re seeing an increase in floor to ceiling windows and skylights, allowing the beauty of nature to become the perfect backdrop to the interior of the home. Having an abundance of natural light is not only a wonderful interior design element, but it can also positively impact your health and wellbeing.

5. Statement lighting

This year is all about expressing individuality and standing out from the crowd. What better way to do that then with statement lighting. The addition of pendent lights, bold lampshades and show stopping chandeliers not only serve a functional purpose, but add a splash of creativity and individuality to any space. From bold colours, to unique shapes and materials, statement lighting is becoming an increasingly popular design trend. In 2023 the more striking your lighting is, the better.

2023 is shaping up to be a bold and exciting new season for interior design, and we’re looking forward to seeing how it unfolds. Will maximalism overtake minimalism’s powerful reign? We’ll soon find out!
