Exploring the Latest Interior Design Trends for 2023

As we enter 2023, interior design trends are evolving to create a more comfortable and inviting atmosphere in our homes. We are seeing the return of the 70s, with warm colours, gold accents and dark wood making a comeback. The resurgence of ‘modern farmhouse’ is also becoming popular, as well as playful designs that evoke feelings of joy and wellbeing. Dopamine décor is all about creating an environment that stimulates creativity and productivity. All these trends are set to make your home look stylish and inviting for the coming year.

Playful designs

Playful designs bring a sense of joy into any room. Designing your home with playful elements can be a great way to make your space more inviting and uplifting. By surrounding yourself with things that make you happy, you can create an environment that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. This can be achieved through “playful dopamine dressing” – using colour, pattern and tactile furnishings to create a joyful atmosphere. Not only will this bring joy into your home, but it can also help to boost your mood and productivity levels. Check out some our playful accent cushions.

This next trend is a style element from the 1970s that has risen above the rest in popularity. Warmer colours are becoming increasingly popular in the world of paint trends.  Inky blues are becoming increasingly popular as a dramatic way to colour-block when paired with other bold colours and create an eye-catching look. Neutral palettes are also maintaining their popularity, as they can be easily mixed and matched with different furnishings.
