2 Warming Neutrals
The neutral colour palette is here to stay, as one of the best living room paint colours and most soothing bedroom paint colours, but in 2023 we're looking to add warmth.
Jordan Neman, co-founder of LA-based home decor and furniture design company, House of Leon. "A completely neutral colour scheme will be popular for a few more years to come, but it no longer offers the excitement it once did. Introducing colours, mineral or earth tones, will definitely be a popular trend for the new year."
"Lovers of gold accents, warm wood tones, and cream sofas rejoice! Warm hues will continue to dominate over cooler colour palettes in 2023," agrees Anne Haimes, design director and founder of Anne Haimes Interiors. "Hardware in kitchens and bathrooms will favour gold over silver or brushed nickel, while stark white walls will be replaced by softer creams and warm earthy shades." For warmth look for the best white paint colours with red undertones, rather than cooler blues.
3 Newstalgia Retro
This new emerging trend is all about celebrating designs of bygone eras but giving them a contemporary twist – so it's not about creating an entirely retro look, it's about making retro designs work for a more modern aesthetic.
"The best interiors are those with depth and character and the best ways to create this is with a mixture of old and new pieces," says Anna McGregor co-founder of interior design emporium LAMP/LDN. The Newstalgia trend celebrates old pieces with modern updates, combining vintage with contemporary styles can create a lived-in and loved timeless aesthetic.
Another great way introducing modern twist on timeless piece furniture like a Queen Ann Chair is adding a bold modern fabric . We have numerous colour options to choose from in-store . There is always selection of Queen Anne Chairs in funky new colours ready to go for delivery . Bespoke chairs are made in Ireland and can take 2-3weeks .
4 Soft Curvature
Our approach to design has been growing increasingly curved, to offer a softness to our homes. From sofas and armchairs with rounded edges and arching headboards to circular mirrors, there was barely a straight line in sight aside from doorframes – and now it looks as though not even those are safe!
"Soften rooms with curved furniture like round tables or sofas for a cosy and comforting appearance," advises Rebecca Snowden, Interior Style Advisor at Furniture And Choice. "This also adds an updated spin on retro furniture shapes such as mid-century design.
Archways can help soften living spaces and help ease the transition from room to room in a way that feels organic. They’re also fabulous for creating the illusion of taller ceilings by drawing attention to the height of walls."
If you’re not prepared to swap out your existing doorways, painted arches can create the same effect without the commitment or expense. Arched or curved topped mirrors can help create the same illusion .
5 Indoor/Outdoor Spaces
Bringing the indoors outside and vice versa is still a hot trend. “After years of being inside during the pandemic, we are seeing more people look for ways to bring the outdoors and nature into their home,” says Jessica Harris, designer and manager of production design at Living Spaces.
Retractable screen doors for large openings are expected to be a growing trend too.
incorporating nature into indoor environments, to replicate the feeling of escapism associated with outdoor spaces.
In doing so we create a calming environment in which to spend time resting and recuperating from a busy outside world. From a plethora of plants to introducing design details that create a continuous flow that seamlessly connects indoors to out this trend is about feeling at one with nature.
In addition to plants, also seek natural materials, textures, and colour palettes to mimic the natural beauty found within nature.
6 Sophisticated Stoneware
Statement stone is forecast to be a big upcoming trend in the world of interiors in 2023. "From travertine, marble to onyx, stoneware brings a sense of luxury to everyday interior items and adds brightness to a space," says Narchie founder Harriet Pringle.
"The timeless material will be seen throughout the home with bold pieces in the kitchen and bathroom, coffee tables and cabinets, to smaller decorative accessories including trays, candlesticks, lamp bases, bowls, and bookends."
7 Oversized Pendants
Experimenting with size, scale, and proportion can bring the most attractive results. Whether intentional or not, designers stumbled on creating oversized lights, and we couldn’t be more grateful. Not only does boldly sized lighting grab anyone’s attention, but they look exquisite in a similarly proportioned setting. After all, the result should give many interiors a designer edge in the coming years.
8 Workplace With Flair
The workplace, whether at home or in an office, has been redefined. Yet, only now do these spaces see highly individualized designs. The office may include elements that make work more comfortable. From furniture design to layout to indoor turf, the workspace gets a happy makeover to increase its use and employee productivity. And if you’re working from home, this means setting up the interior to your precise needs.
9 Geo-Retro Art Rug
You might have noticed that geometric patterns are in vogue this year in all textiles – and with rugs, that is no different. Retro rugs with geometric shapes, patterns, or geometric shapes and patterns are the perfect complement for contemporary interiors or midcentury modern interiors with a modern flair.
This rug trend often combines sleek shapes with a palette of colours that is timeless – green, blue, beige, white, and black. These beloved hues balance the bold silhouettes that can be easily too bold for less daring interiors. In 2023, these retro area rugs will also look good on any wall that is lacking storytelling.

10 Artisan Influences
The Artisan trend will rock on in 2023 and it's the complete opposite of the clean and simple minimalism we have become so used to.
Cosy rooms painted in earthy tones full of handmade charm will create a warming backdrop for worldly possessions, layers of texture, and fine craftsmanship.
This ethical look inter-links with so many other 2023. It can help bring a sense of nature into our living rooms with decorative objects lovely made from organic and sustainable materials.
This new organic style will be full of textures and warm soft colours. the accessories used in this space will have an artisanal feel to them I think earthy muted browns, blacks yellows and greens will feature heavily in this scheme.
