Some may be sad to see 2022 in the rearview, while others couldn’t say goodbye fast enough. Regardless of how you feel about saying hello to 2023, there’s one thing everyone can get excited about. With the arrival of a new year comes plenty of new trends to discover.
Interior design trends have remained reasonably steady over the past few years while people have been in and out of lockdowns. But now that the world is opening up, there are some brand new trends on the horizon for those looking to spruce up their interior design.
To make your home look stunning for a brand-new year, consider implementing some of these exciting new trends. We’ve rounded up some of the best ones to usher in a new chapter.
Check in with Your Real Estate Agent
If you’re redecorating with a plan to sell your home in the near future and just looking to make it more appealing in the hope of getting a higher sale price, it’s wise to wait and talk to your real estate agent. It’s always good to know what trends are occurring in interior design, but if you plan to list your house for sale in Whitby Ontario, you should speak to your local Whitby agent before making any significant changes.
Your local agent will be aware of local trends and know firsthand what buyers in your community are looking for and prioritizing when looking at houses. With this knowledge, they will be able to provide advice on where to best spend your dollars for the most impact.
Personality Infused Design
Whether it’s fashion or jewelry, individuality seems to be a top trend across the board. This extends to the world of interior design as well. After years of neutral and picture-perfect minimalist styles, people are ready to go big, bold, bright and colorful, but in ways that are tailored to their own personal unique style.
Comfort and coziness are high on the agenda, and these are implemented through one-of-a-kind art, mixing old furnishings with exciting new pieces, layering textiles and collections that speak to one’s own sense of self.
Home gyms were all the rage while people were stuck at home throughout lockdowns, but more people are shifting from a focus on working out to a focus on wellness. Homeowners want to infuse the idea of self-care and wellness throughout their homes but also want dedicated spaces for this. The importance of taking time for exercise, but also yoga, mindfulness, meditation and spa-like activities are at the forefront of people’s minds as they design their homes.
Consumers have become more thoughtful of the impact of their choices and purchases on the world around them over the last few years, and this is something that will grow even more in 2023. Consumers are pushing companies for more environmentally friendly options across industries. As people look at their home design, expect questions about where and how materials, decor and furnishings are made to be in the spotlight.
Convenient, inexpensive and disposable furniture will likely decline as more people turn toward antiques or higher quality investment pieces that will stand the test of time rather than only lasting a few years and ending up taking up space in a landfill.
The Past Returns
Trends come and go, and often they come back around again. Returning to previously loved styles is a mainstay of fashion, hairstyles, jewelry and interior design. This trend combines with others as many are choosing to invest in one or two quality antique pieces with newer furnishings, which also allows for a focus on personal taste and style to come into play. And after years of minimalist design styles, people are ready to go big, and Art Deco-inspired styles, with more ornate and decorative details, are coming back into play.
No More Neutral
Okay, neutral tones aren’t out, but warmer hues are gaining popularity as people want warmer and cozier feelings in their homes. One driver of this is to embrace a sense of flow from indoor to outdoor spaces, so colors that embody this will be seen more.
Calming, tranquil natural tones in greens, blues and teals will be big as people focus on wellness-inspired and soothing tones.
Keep up with the latest trends by implementing a few of the new looks we mentioned into the design of your home — as long as it works with your own personal style, of course!
