Whether you’re a trend follower or a trendsetter, you can’t ignore the ever-changing interior design trends. 2023 marks the new age of the post-pandemic or inter-pandemic period. It's time to revamp our home space to give us this sense of a new beginning for the new year.
"There's no one sure-fire way that we can say use this palette and this is going to give everybody a level of comfort," says Leatrice "Lee" Eiseman, a professional color specialist known for being the executive director of the Pantone® Color Institute. "I think you’ve got to find that level of comfort and it’s one of the reasons that as a forecaster I never ever make that umbrella statement." Trends come and go, so it’s essential to find your own sense of self and style and be able to incorporate that with the new.
In 2022, we saw a lot of cottagecore and white minimalism, but this year will begin seeing more energetic hues while still bringing in those natural elements and mixing them with vintage pieces.
We've compiled some of the best interior design trends from some of the most influential like Architectural Digest, Vogue and HGTV.
Fun and Energetic Palette
As we enter the new year with high hopes, we'll see more vibrant colors. We've settled between minimalism and maximalist, it's infusing the two. It's creating a fun space that still feels relaxing and cozy. Try switching out your neutral bedding and pillows for Pantone® Color of the Year, Viva Magenta 18-1750.
Redecorating your entire house isn’t always possible but that doesn’t mean you can’t get a new year refresher. Lighting in a room sets the ambience, whether you're going for light and bright or dark and moody. By swamping out your table lamp or just replacing a bulb, it can give the same space a whole new look.
Organize, Organize, Organize
No better way to start the new year off than with a decluttered home. Organizing queen Marie Kondo's 6 Rules of Tidying suggests to follow rule 4: "tidying by category, not by location."
Their study finds that "people often store the same type of item in more than one place. When you tidy each place separately, you’re repeating the same work in many locations." Marie Kondo, KonMari.
Have you heard old is new again? We are seeing a rise in vintage being integrated into homes. Decorating with vintage pieces can guarantee your space is one of a kind. Achieve this look by shopping at local thrift stores and vintage shops or collecting unique pieces during your travels.
Natural and Renewed
Goodbye to clouds of gray and hello to warm hues. Nature keeps us grounded and known for improving our health, it only makes sense we want it in our homes. Inspired by nature's tones and textures, like raw wood and mossy greens. By adding more plants, mixing woods, or using woven baskets as storage can make your space a sanctuary.
Our assisted living community, Landing at Watermere Frisco, value the warm tones. The units feature beautiful warm wood cabinetry, complemented with wood flooring.
Deep and Dramatic
A dark contrast room can create a space for self-reflection and solitude. Painting an entire wall black can be daunting, instead, try a dark armchair or a dark rug in your space.
At our community Two99 Monroe in Roanoke is a perfect example of using deep hues for contrast. Two99 Monroe features dark kitchen cabinetry, contrasted with quartz countertops.
Polished glam is a thing of the past. Nowadays, we're craving warmth and individuality. We're showing character through artisanal pieces. Fill your space with eclectic pieces with odd cuts and shapes that add variety to your home.
The Instagram famous brand, Olive Ateliers captures just that by "sourcing and curating unique collections of one-of-a-kind items with charm and character." Olive Ateliers. "A little rough around the edges. They embody that of an old soul, or are in fact, vintage or antique by definition."
