Incorporate bold colors into your home design
While monochromatic and predominantly white rooms have been popular in the last few years, bolder and brighter colors are starting to have their moment again. From vibrant blues to daring yellows and reds, these colors can evoke a variety of emotions and make for one-of-a-kind living spaces. Don’t be afraid to mix and match different colors or even create an accent wall that stands out from the rest of the room.
Magentas and mauves are having a moment…
In terms of what colors are popular, look no further than the colors of the year from some of the biggest design and paint companies in the world. Pantone named “Viva Magenta,” a bright purple-red color, as its color of the year. Using a bright color like this as an accent can be a great way to incorporate some life into a room, or use it for the primary color and use neutrals as accents!
In a similar vein, Benjamin Moore named “Raspberry Blush” their color of the year. While the blush color is not as bright as the magenta, it’s certainly in the same family. And Dunn-Edwards selected “Terra Rosa,” a more earthy shade of mauve.
… As are blue-greens
Biophilia: Bringing the outdoors in
The trend of biophilia certainly isn’t going anywhere. Biophilia refers to humans’ need to connect with nature and other forms of life. It only makes sense that in a world where we constantly feel disconnected, we want to bring more living things such as foliage into our homes.
Think of ways to bring the outdoors in by incorporating plants, flowers, and even natural materials into your home. Hang planters with lush succulents and vines from the ceiling or walls for a modern jungle look, or add pieces made of natural materials such as wood furniture, stone accents, rattan baskets and wicker chairs.
Vintage is new and exciting
As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. The old is new once more as vintage styles make a comeback. From mid-century modern furniture pieces to vintage wallpaper, textiles and home accessories, vintage styles are showing up in homes more and more.
These items can add charm as well as a unique story to your space.
Consider looking for vintage furniture pieces at local thrift stores or consignment shops instead of buying brand new – it could give the space a more authentic feeling. Plus, it’s a great way to spend money on your home decorating and renovating!
Incorporate curves and arches
It’s seemingly impossible to pick up a home design magazine these days without seeing lots of curved lines and arches incorporated into the featured spaces. Curves and arches can create a softer look in the home while adding architectural interest.
Think of incorporating curves into your living space by using curved furniture pieces such as sofas, or even built-in alcoves or archways to add depth and character to the room. Curved surfaces are also slowly but surely making their way into everyday spaces like the kitchen. From curved islands to arching faucets and cabinet hardware, these elements can create a more inviting and exciting atmosphere.
Add intentional lighting + natural light
Lighting can play a huge role in not only how your space looks, but also how it feels. “Intentional” lighting is certainly on the rise, but what exactly does that mean? Intentional lighting might mean picking out light bulbs with warm or cool tones to fit your rooms, or using smart light bulbs so you can adjust the brightness and temperature from your phone.
Using lighting as a statement or decor piece is also quite popular. Pendant lights remain a popular choice for focal points above dining room tables or kitchen islands.
Natural light is also becoming more important in home design, as it can make a room feel much bigger and brighter when used correctly. Think of ways to maximize natural light in your space, such as large windows or skylights, or sheer curtains that let the light in while still providing privacy. Incorporating reflective surfaces like mirrors can also help bounce natural light around the room and make it feel both brighter and larger.
How to use 2023 home design trends
Finally, don’t be afraid to break the rules when it comes to home design. If a certain trend doesn’t fit in your space or with your personality, don’t feel obligated to follow it – after all, it’s your home, and you should design it to fit your needs and tastes. With these trends in mind though, you can find ways to incorporate them into your home in unique and personalized ways!
