When it comes to interior design trends for 2023, lighting and texture are key.
According to Kelly Hoppen, one of the world’s most renowned interior designers, “Lighting will be key”.
Hoppen, whose celebrity clients include David and Victoria Beckham and actor Martin Shaw, says news week“A Star lamp can almost look like a sculpture in a living room.”
The South African-born British designer added that rugs also play an important role in the feel of a room, noting that “they transform a space massively”.
“The preferred pile of rugs is getting thicker and more luxurious,” she revealed.
While many shy away from wallpaper over fears it might soon look outdated, Hoppen said it’s actually “making a massive comeback — especially textured walls as a backdrop for art.”
The author revealed that dining room displays are also making a resurgence.
“People will eat there, so tabletop entertainment will be popular.”
Regarding which stone is the highest quality, Hoppen said, “Marble is solid, especially for coffee tables because it gives that extra sparkle.”
Plus, don’t be afraid to mix and match. “Mixing all kinds of styles, old and new, and adding crystal with modern glass” is a surefire way to create a visually pleasing space.
As for other trends to watch out for, Los Feliz Realtors, a branch of RubyHome – which are experts in luxury real estate and design – says it’s all about soothing colors and dual-use pieces. Here’s what they said news week.
1. Lighter is better
“The ideal would be to make the most of natural light, but not everyone is blessed with big windows and sun exposure, so the focus is entirely on chandeliers and lamps,” they said. “There’s no wrong way to choose a pendant, but what’s likely to be trending this winter is oversized and bold.”
2. The right colors
“If repainting walls and furniture is something on your to-do list, you might want to go in one of two directions: go for natural colors to enjoy the calm, earthy vibe, or stick if you want a touch of color within the safe lines of soft and calm blues and greens, with an addition of soft pinks and lavenders if that’s more your taste. To finish you will notice that soft gold detailing is missing.”
“As time goes on, we also move away from the idea that a home simply has to be a place to eat, sleep and relax. Having a multifunctional home could be the best trend 2023 brings, with additions like luxury movies and playrooms, gyms and saunas.”
“Out with straight lines and geometry, in with curves and movement! One of the most promising trends of this winter. You don’t have to redesign your whole house to achieve this style, just an arched door or a fun and vibrant piece of furniture can just do the trick.”
5. “Mid-century chic”
The California-based company continued, “It’s a return of the ’60s and ’70s to our living rooms, bedrooms and kitchens. That means wallpaper and meaningful objects[s]. Try to buy an eye-catching sofa or an ornate cabinet that will be the star of your room and combine it with soft colors and elegant curves for a perfect 2023 trend style home.
6. Add some texture
“Adding character to any space without making it kitschy could be difficult, and this is where marble comes to the rescue. An unexpected texture that’s still elegant and smooth will draw attention without being too loud. You can also try adding some pieces that mix different textures and materials.”
“Your home can definitely be how you want it to be, so why not a garden? Indoor gardening, plants, and earthier pieces can give your living room a resort feel, and that’s a trend for 2023 that we’ve seen before, but it’s only going to get more popular.”
