Interior Design Trends for 2023

Interior Design Trends for 2023

The New Year gives us all a much-needed kickstart to try something new and if a new home or interior design project is on the cards for you, this article on the top trends for 2023 might be just what you need to see.

Here, the talented Rebecca Charles at Killer5 Interior Design Studios kindly shares her predictions and advice for the year ahead:

Avoid fad-fashions!

This might seem crazy to say this in an article centred around upcoming trends, but it’s a strategy that will serve you well and it’s something we can expect people to become more mindful of this year. 

“We try to steer clear of fad-fashions. It’s particularly important in the current climate with the cost of living crisis, as everyone is more conscious of spending,” says Rebecca.

Go for neutral colour palette.

You can save yourself time and money by opting for a more neutral base colour.

“I’d avoid colour schemes and trends that are likely to date quite quickly, hence why we opt for a neutral backdrop. Introducing splashes of colour in items such as cushions and accessories, these are items that can be updated easily and are great cost effective ways to change a look of a room.” 

Focus on wellness.  

January is one of the best times of the year for self-care, but why not practice it all year round?

“Wellness will be a huge theme for design throughout 2023. Think quiet, peaceful, happy spaces. 

“But it doesn’t have to come at a huge expense. Plants, for example, bring the outside in and can really bring a calming influence into a space. Introducing colour such as the ‘Viva Magenta’ the pantone colour for 2023, which is a crimson red tone can add a punchy, vibrant element of fun and interest” 

Lighting is also important. Ceiling lights can sometimes be too harsh, so think about introducing table and floor lamps to create a calmer cosier ambience."

Work with the space available.

It’s been well documented that since lockdown, there has been a big increase in people working from home and this looks set to continue in 2023.

“Having an office space is important, particularly somewhere that can be concealed once the working day is over. 

“Homeowners may not necessarily be able to dedicate a whole room to an office, however, so it’s about working with the space available and you can implement a working desk space in the living room - just try to ensure it’s one that doesn’t look out of place and matches the style and decor.”
