One thing is for certain, more and more people are taking stock in their surroundings. Incorporating greenery, heritage pieces and going bold with color are just some of the design trends they’re suggesting.

The design will go bold and moody in 2023—everything from cabinetry to wallpaper to furnishings. Dark colors have a reputation for making a space feel small but, when properly balanced and used with appropriate lighting, they can provide warmth and depth that light colors can’t always achieve.

Think black, blues, greens, warm neutrals, and rich brown. These colors feel classic yet add color and depth without feeling too bright and colorful. Adding a layer of chocolate will be one way to refresh a space in 2023. The color is not only cozy, but it has a luxurious note to it. An easy way to embrace this trend is by painting all four walls and the ceiling of a smaller room in chocolate brown for a warm and snug effect.

In 2023, we’ll be seeing more blue marble, which keeps a space feeling light, fresh, and natural. It looks great on countertops, floors, and around fireplaces. We’ll be highlighting more organic materials like plant life, woven grasses, and earthenware in décor, recognizing our innate draw to nature, fresh air, and living things. You don’t have to spend a lot of money to add plant life, woven baskets, and pottery to your interiors. This trend requires a little bit of consideration and care, but it can also be a meditative and rewarding process to cultivate living décor.

Bringing outdoor elements indoors started in commercial spaces when companies began incorporating living walls and rooftop gardens. As we spent more time in our homes [over the last few years], we saw how this trend evolved in the home environment and will continue to do so in 2023. It’s easy to affiliate with nature by adding plants or even a painting with moss or other living things. Plus, doing so enhances both the quality of your life and the quality of your air. 

Heritage pieces of the past will be trending in 2023, coming off the grand-millennial and coastal grandma wave we’ve been seeing. Scouring auction houses, vintage resellers, and local antique fairs and markets for available inventory and finding unique pieces that are conversation starters and add patina to a home will continue to trend in 2023.
