Whether you’re planning a complete home makeover or a few simple interior updates, this season’s design trends are hard to ignore. Bold colours and patterns, whimsical designs, unique craftsmanship and retro textiles are among the styles set to dominate in 2023.
Say Hello to Bold Colours and Clashing Patterns
If you love bold colours, now is truly your time to shine. Gone are the days of safe, drab neutrals, 2023 is the year to have some fun and personalise your home with colours that bring you joy. Which colours? There are no hard and fast rules, although the experts suggest beginning with a warm base, like latte brown, buttery yellow, burnt orange or earthy red.
Bold, bright patterns are also firmly in fashion this season, and it’s even okay to mix clashing patterns together. Think grandma’s house with its colourful mishmash of florals, stripes and prints. Geometric patterns are popular, and floor rugs can be a great way to introduce some interesting shapes. Wallpaper, upholstered furniture and colourful curtains can also contribute to the mix.
Say goodbye to drab window treatments and usher in the new year with some bright new curtains. We’ve got loads of colours and patterns to choose from, and we’ll happily bring our mobile showroom to your home to help you select the right fabrics to match your décor.
Sheer curtains add a touch of softness and elegance to complement any colour scheme, and you can pair sheers with heavier drapes for added depth and room darkening functionality. There’s endless scope for creativity when it comes to curtain fabrics, and we’ve got plenty of options available. You can book a free in-home consultation via our website to get some personalised recommendations.
Create Interest with Textured Walls and Fabrics
Layering textures can add depth and visual interest to your rooms in a variety of ways. Walls can be enhanced by textured paints and wallpapers, or geometrically patterned wall panels. Tactile kitchen and bathroom tiles are not only aesthetically pleasing but offer enhanced safety by making your bathroom surfaces more slip-resistant.
Roman blinds are a great option for adding both colour and textured depth to your windows. The folded fabric creates a luxurious frame for your window when stacked, and retains textural interest when unfolded. These blinds can also be paired with matching pelmets to enhance both the textural appeal and room insulating properties.
The Beauty of Unique and Meaningful Objects
Self-expression is a key feature of this season’s design trends, which means bland, mass-produced items are out. Instead, consider personalising your home with special objects or unique, hand-crafted pieces that are meaningful to you and give your space a homely feel.
Organic materials and shapes, and soft, curvaceous forms are popular right now, which perhaps reflects our desire for comfort and connection with nature. Local craft markets, op shops and garage sales can be great places to uncover these unique items to adorn your home.
Get Creative with Artistic Lighting
The humble pendant light is being transformed into an artistic design element and thing of beauty in its own right. A multitude of new styles, colours and shapes are emerging this season, creating new opportunities to transform your home’s lighting into an eye-catching design feature, as well as a source of illumination.
A Return to 80s Maximalism and Eclectic Styling
Minimalism is so last decade. Neutral tones and cool, sterile interiors stripped back to their bare essentials were once seen as a trendy antidote to a culture of radical consumerism. However, the pandemic has banished this once-popular austere design style in favour in favour of old Hollywood glamour and 80’s maximalism.
Vintage, retro and upcycled textiles are a great way to combine yesteryear’s fashions with today’s eco-conscious design principles. Throw in some velvet cushions, plush sofas, traditional artworks and reupholstered antique furniture to complete the look.
While we’re talking 80’s styling, why not consider dressing your windows in new vertical blinds? Modern verticals have come a long way since their heyday in the 80s, and are now available in a bold array of colours and patterns.
Colourful vertical blinds create a striking statement in their own right, or can be paired with sheer curtains for an added touch of drama and classical elegance. Verticals are ideally suited to larger windows and doors, and can even be motorised for ease of use.
