Here are the Fab Fings insights into the interior design trends of 2023:
1. Natural Materials - Above source - Trendir
Natural materials are becoming increasingly popular in interior design. This is due to a number of factors, including the growing awareness of sustainability and the desire for homes that are both comfortable and stylish. Natural materials, such as wood, stone, marble, pottery, wicker, rattan, wool, cotton and straw, plus organic textures and house plants, can add peace, warmth and character to a space. They are often more durable than synthetic materials, give off less toxins and are kinder to the environment when disposed of.
2. Organic Shapes - Above source - The Glam Pad
Organic shapes are another trend that is expected to continue to grow in popularity in 2023. These shapes can be seen in everything from furniture to lighting fittings. They add a sense of fluidity and movement to a space and can help to create a more natural, calming and homely environment.
3. Bold Colours - Above source - Cottages and Bungalows Mag
Bold colours are making a comeback in interior design and replacing the previous trend for dark interiors. This is a trend that is sure to please those who are looking to add a touch of personality to their home. Bold colours can be used to create a focal point in a room, or they can be used to add a pop of colour to an otherwise neutral space. They elude to confidence and joyfulness, and we all need a touch of that this year!
4. Mix and Match - Source above - Chez V
The mix and match approach to interior design is another trend that is expected to continue to grow in popularity in 2023. This approach allows you to mix and match different styles and pieces to create a unique and eclectic look. If you are looking for a way to add some personality to your home, the mix and match approach is a great option. Mix and match colours, textures, patterns, woods, metals, styles and eras. For example, it's now on-trend to mix antique or vintage furniture, artwork and accessories with contemporary colour schemes and contemporary furniture and visa versa.
5. Maximalism - Above source: Wendy Morrison Design
Maximalism is a trend that is all about excess and over-the-top style. This approach is not for the faint-hearted, but it can be a great way to add some drama and excitement to your home. If you are looking for a way to make a statement, maximalism is a great option. Maximalism doesn't necessarily mean maximum spend or maximum planetary recklessness: exuberant furniture, luxurious soft furnishings and beautiful ornaments can all be sourced cheaply from charity shops, markets and vintage retailers. All items bought second hand are materials saved from both manufacture and waste disposal. It's certainly not necessary to live like paupers to save the planet!
6. Feminine - Source above - Birdie Fortesque
Femine interiors are just the thing we all need after the traumatic times of late. Pretty colours (especially pink), soft lines, naturalistic patterns and tactile textiles all help to create a nurturing and calming environment in your home. Flowers (real or in patterns and art) provide a sense of renewal and hope, frilly edging create a carefree feeling, embroidery gives the impression of spare time, silks and velvets feel good to touch, and curves make everything feel more gentle. Everything has been softened.
7. Expressive Twists - Above Source - DigsDigs
2023 and beyond will be a time of self expression, after years of being forced to hide ourselves behind masks, shields, screens and doors. Expressive twists in interior design add a touch of rebelliousness, character and individualism, all things held captive for so long. Pops of colour, eccentric art, re-imagined uses for things, obviously handmade items, quirky lighting, dramatic fireplaces, mismatched bathroom suits, round beds, rooms with no TVs, massive mirrors and unusual cooker hoods. 2023 and beyond will see avantgarde go mainstream as people relish their restored freedoms.
These are just a few of the top trends in interior design 2023. If you are looking to update your home, visit the Fab Fings online shop for some colourful and quirky decor accessories.
