2023 Design Trends and How to Make Them Work for You

2023 is upon us and with a new year ushers in a new wave of interior design trends and projects! In this blog post we are going to highlight the new things coming our way, old trends we’re saying goodbye to and how to accomplish your home improvement goals!

Here are some of the most interesting 2023 interior design trends and how to make them work for you:

  1. Natural Materials – Incorporate natural materials such as wood, stone, and plant-based fibers to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.
  2. Bold Colors – Use bold and daring colors to make a statement in your space, but be careful not to overdo it and create an overwhelming environment.
  3. Mixing Textures – Combining different textures in your space creates visual interest and depth, consider combining smooth, rough, and soft materials.
  4. Minimalism – Keep interiors uncluttered by focusing on simple shapes, clean lines, and neutral color palettes.
  5. Biophilic Design – Bring nature into your interiors by incorporating elements such as indoor plants, natural light, and organic shapes.

Remember to take into consideration your personal style and the purpose of the space before implementing these trends.

We know that gray interiors and cool tones in general are on their way out, soon to be replaced by warm tones, pops of color and accent walls. “”Opt for an accent with a unique texture or wallpaper in a similar color to the rest of the room,” said interior designer Rudolph Diesel. “If you want to create a wooden accent wall, make sure you’re using vertical slats as they give a roof a lift, and make small spaces feel more intimate and large spaces feel more inviting.”

Wood never goes out of style and that is just a fact. There are a million and one ways to add wood to your home, whether you add natural wood furniture, add paneling, bring in wooden wall papers, ect. There is always more room for nature inside of your home and work space. 

Oversized lighting fixtures had a streak of fun but that trend is dying down, and we couldn’t be happier to see it go. In the same breath as practicality, we are also saying goodbye to the cluttered floating shelves and replacing them with simple, elegant storage shelving in our homes and offices.

The “rustic farmhouse” look is very much in this year. Instead of fantasizing about a country chic lifestyle that you might never have, why not be more intentional about how you’re bringing those rustic elements into your space and make the aesthetic your own? Incorporate wood floors, exposed wood beams, and new or reclaimed wood windows that are enhanced with minimalist furniture and meaningful objects from the places you go. 

A trend that is only continuing to build on itself is buying vintage, refurbished, used furniture, especially natural wood pieces to bring history and personality into your spaces. This trend is also environmentally friendly and appeals to all ages.  

Whatever the project is, there are steps you can take in order to make sure you complete projects with accuracy, speed and long term results. If you want to be successful, you need a plan. What if you’re not the best planner? Well then you have come to the right place.

Your first step is to decide what project you’d like to tackle and the necessary tools and materials needed. No matter how big, or how small, every project needs a plan. Your plan will lay out the feasibility of the plan and what it’s going to take in order to complete the project. Start with defining your general needs. 

  1. How many people are needed to complete the project?
  2. What resources are required for this project to be successful? 
  3. What is your budget? Include labor, materials, equipment and fees or permits you might need to take care of. 

When you are able to outline these things for yourself and anyone helping you, this helps your project to be completed smoothly and successfully.

We hope you’ve enjoyed this interior design preview for 2023, reach out if you have any questions, need help, or just want to say hello!
