The 2023 interior design trends for the home

Interior design trends for 2023 reflect the idea of ​​sustainability, comfort and design: The home becomes the quintessential place dedicated to coexistence and being together with a return to essentiality and nature.

Sustainability and minimalism are the key concepts on which the decoration trends of 2023 will be developed, both in terms of the choice of furniture and materials: glass, wood and stone will be the most used materials next year, as they are eco-sustainable and highly customizable: nature will also be present in the choice of colours, from forest green to desert ochre. White paint in its various shades is a good option to contrast with these colours.

The decoration trends of 2023, from the choice of colours to materials and trends dedicated to the different rooms of  the house, from the kitchen to the living room, through the bathroom and bedroom.

Trendy colours 2023: the most popular shades for home decor

Together with the materials, the colours also become the mirror of the new styles and the new trends: the fashionable colours of 2023 are warm and comfortable and give the different spaces a familiar and relaxed tone: next year they will be the protagonists tones that are mostly inspired by natural elements such as deserts or forests. These colours can also be seen in the 2023 trends in restaurant decoration.

There will be no shortage of ochre, which blends with cinnamon and bronze, green, which recalls the serenity of country-inspired forests, and blue, the relaxing colour par excellence, perfect in opposition to white and wood.

Blue for an elegant and refined style

One of the most popular shades will be blue, the quintessential colour that brings serenity and calms the mind. The darker blue tone is especially fashionable, which combines perfectly with the light wood and the golden accessories, creating a very elegant effect.

Rural-inspired olive green

Green is a colour that allows you to reconnect directly with nature, and furniture in this tone is ideal for relaxing your mind. Among the trendy colours of 2023 is olive green, which is great when combined with wooden furniture to give the house a refined country chic effect.

Yellow ochre

Yellow is a colour full of light, but its strong and bright tone is often difficult to combine, in the 2023 trend the striking effect is softened and ochre is the protagonist, a very refined colour that recalls the colours of sand, desert and exotic countries.

Excellent for lovers of ethnic style, ochre reaches its maximum expression in contrast with dark grey, for a soberer effect, and with forest green, to give the environment an original Mexican style.

2023 Trends, between minimalism and sustainability

The design trends of 2023 emphasize the theme of nature and eco sustainability, without giving up the desire for elegance and aesthetics: the home should be cozy and comfortable, where the minimalist approach finds its balance with natural elements.

Thus, one can understand why the Nordic style, with its harmonious and essential lines, is the most fashionable style in 2023, capable of giving an aura of simplicity and purity to the furniture.

The desire for the countryside and natural furniture finds its natural expression in the rustic style, where wicker, rattan and wood become the starting points with which to have fun creating furniture with a familiar and nostalgic flavour.

Trending materials 2023, sustainability is the keyword

Society pays more and more attention to ecology and the preservation of the planet, and the interior design trends of 2023 perfectly reflect this ideology. The interior design trend gives preference to recycled materials, manufactured with low environmental impact and from certified forests.

The most popular material is wood: versatile and eco-sustainable, it gives warmth and personality to the environment, allowing you to reconnect with the earth.

Along with it, two other fashionable materials for 2023: glass and stone. Glass allows you to play with shapes and colours, creating suggestive games of light. The stone is used not only for kitchen countertops and flooring but also for wall panels

2023 furniture trends for the living room

The living room of 2023 will be spacious, cozy and relaxing, the true focal point of the house.

The natural element is defined not only with preserved plants, flowers and plants, recreating an authentic urban jungle, but also with exotic wallpaper. The sofa, large and cozy, becomes the main element of the living area, combined with suspended bookcases or made with recycled materials.
