Our homes are where we spend most of our time away from the chaos of the world and we would definitely want to make the best of its interior because, who wouldn’t want their homes to be their personal tailor-made paradise?
Change is the only constant. We humans continuously evolve and demand changes, which makes us unique! Whether it’s rearranging your furniture or repainting your walls, don’t you just love the adrenaline rush you get when you change the looks of your home once in a while?
It can be hard to decide on a style for these changes, but at the end of the day, we surely don’t want to spend our resources on an outdated look. So, what are the new trends? We got the answers for you!

That’s right, say goodbye to the monotonous looks of the grey and white colour schemes. Terracotta is continuing its comeback. The earthy hue has always been a distinctive design choice, but we expect it to be on full display in many homes this year. By bringing in this warmer tone and dismissing cooler hues that have dominated the industry recently, we’ll see a variety of natural colour palettes that should make homes even more inviting.
My advice? Be bold and creative with your paints and furnishings by opting for muted shades of white, cream, pink, red, mustard and green which all pair beautifully with terracotta shades.

Chrome is the new black
Black has been kicked to the back. 2023 will be the year for a real resurgence in bespoke and sustainable designs. Working with different chrome textures through furniture and finishings is a great way to glow up your home. While brass has been the dominant choice for light fixtures in recent years, chrome finishes will be highly sought after.
Chrome in your lighting fixtures paired with a warm white bulb will bring a touch of class to any room while creating a relaxing and cosy atmosphere. Floor and table lamps are perfect for adding elegance and are the easiest way to adopt this new trend into your home. As an ode to the 1960s, we’ll see a lot more people from all ages considering adopting this trend for their home interiors in 2023.

Running back to nature
Modern minimalism has been a popular choice for the past years but, it’s clear that people are missing the essence of nature in their homes as biophilic design makes its way through the industry.
Biophilia is still a relatively new term in our design conversations, yet it is becoming one of the most important considerations in our industry. It means bringing the outdoors in.
Our home is our sanctuary, and through careful consideration, strategy and a few house plants, your favourite rooms or entire home can become a natural oasis by bringing the outdoors in. Carefully integrating design elements that replicate the outdoors can instill a sense of harmony between your home and the world outside.
Creating calming and relaxing spaces that promote health and wellness inside the home has increased in popularity, vastly due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and this trend will continue in 2023. Start by introducing low-maintenance indoor house plants, such as a fiddle leaf or peace lily, to integrate greenery into your home. Also, maximising natural light to enter the home seamlessly which can add warmth to any room, particularly at dawn and dusk.
Finally, choosing materials that foster organic, natural tones that depict the outside environment, such as wood, copper, and stone is a great way to incorporate biophilia in any home.

Rocking on with the metallic, bold designs
Loud tiles, statement furniture and bold colour choices may still intimidate people, but as grey and white tones are making their exit, this trend can help add a little more fun and individuality to our spaces in a sophisticated way.
Ditch the colour-coordinated decor for sophistication and have fun by choosing one bold, statement colour or pattern to incorporate in your home. For example, Pantone’s 2023 Colour of the Year Viva Magenta could be used perfectly here, contrasting with cobalt blue and accents of metallic to create an elevated look throughout your home.

Curves, curves everywhere!
Curves can instantly create softness inside a home, and we see it everywhere. From curved hallways, walls and windows to shapely couches, mirrors, and island benches. Contrary to popular belief, curves can add movement, zone the home creatively, act as statement furniture pieces and even create load-bearing walls.
Curves, when incorporated well, can blend into a space so effortlessly, making them a versatile design choice for any area of the home. For those looking to renovate or revamp their home, adding curvaceous finishing touches will bring a touch of elegance into any space.
What are you waiting for? It’s still not too late to give your home the new year makeover it deserves. Let’s get to work!
