Predicting the future: what can we expect in 2023 interior design

(4 min read) Although most people will always eschew current interior design trends in favor of customized and timeless designs, some popular items and furnishings seem to be unavoidable. No matter how much you don’t care about what’s hip and fresh, no one wants to appear outdated and smell of naphthalene, right? Right.

2022 was all about the biophilic approach and curves. 2023 is bound to at least partially continue in the same direction, with a variety of new trends. We’ve consulted experts, bloggers, and magazines throughout the web and we’ve chosen five design trends that will definitely rock the interior design scene this year.

Pinewood and terracotta

It seems that these two will be the stars of 2023 and we are here for it! These past couple of years brought many changes in terms of interior design simply because people were spending much more time indoors. We missed nature and fresh air, so we started bringing in as much of it as we could. Last year we were obsessing over greenery and washed wood. this year pine wood and terracotta are taking over. Both can fit a number of interior design styles, so you won’t have to remodel your whole home to incorporate this particular trend into your interior.

When in doubt — texture!

Plaster has been doing rounds for a while now, but it is expected to make a true impact this year. The growing popularity of plaster brought back the ever-present lime wash paint, which is getting hype all over the web as you are reading this. Plaster is great because it can be added without major reconstructions and lime wash as such can be used virtually anywhere. Both plaster and lime wash has a chalky texture, and both just get better with age. Aside from these two, there is a variety of options that will mix well and create some amazing textures to boost that nuanced visual effect you are going for. Reclaimed wood and metals, soft velvet and robust leather, and so many more.

At-home Wellness

At-home wellness rooms are expected to replace home gyms this year. Sure, we want to be fit and healthy, but it’s more about serenity and inner peace these days. Chicly decorated spaces that are great for meditation, yoga, exercise, and spa experience are in-demand at the moment and they just keep becoming more and more popular. These peaceful spaces should be an escape from technology and busy everyday hustle and bustle. Needless to say, 2023 should be the year of nature and tranquility when it comes to interior design.

Her royal highness — the dining room!

Open floor plans were all the rage last year and the year before, but that’s about to change. The architectural section of interior design is about to raise some walls according to designers. The first thing to come back together with the walls is a dedicated dining room. People are eager to reconnect, gather and be cozy and snug again, and that isn’t quite encouraged if you have a huge open space to work with. For that reason, dedicated dining rooms are about to become a thing again.

Architectural design with in-your-face borders

Art-deco inspired furnishings and designs that were very popular last year paved the road for the indoor architecture style. Graphic and bold approaches to interior design and decor as well as not-so-subtle nods to Bauhaus and De Stijl movements will be it trend in 2023. Clear outlines, distinctive layering, and bold borders are to be expected everywhere. Mosaic borders and performance fabrics are taking center stage at this very moment. These two will be particularly popular among those who want to be on-point with their interior style without reconstructing it completely. Mosaic borders paired up with some smart layering and voila! — architectural style interior achieved!

So these will be the biggest and the brightest in 2023. This doesn’t mean that you are to follow these trends blindly. This article simply steers you in the right direction. In the end, you should always choose to create the interior that helps you grow and makes you comfortable and that should be your starting point with design and decor too.

    I, too, don’t care about what’s hip and fresh so what I do is furnish with classics because they don’t change much from year to year.

    I’m actually a big fan of dining rooms for just the reasons you said. Everyone seems to grab and go when the space is big and I miss dining room meals at the table.
