After looking at numerous homes, you finally found the one — but it needs a little sprucing up. Updating your home can be really rewarding and exciting. It's an opportunity to make the home better suited to your needs and also a chance to catch up with some of the latest design trends. But what are the interior design trends you should follow in 2023? Here are some of the coolest ideas our real estate agents have noticed lately.
- Deep, Dramatic Shades
In terms of color scheme, it's trendy to go deep and dramatic right now. Designers are using a lot of charcoal gray and dark, rusty brown in homes. Often, these colors are used on an accent wall or two, and then you complement them with more colorful furniture. Imagine, for example, a cobalt blue couch against a rust-brown living room wall.
- Pink Neutrals
Pink may not seem like the first color you'd use in your home, but a very specific type of pink is in-style right now, and it looks a lot classier than you'd think. Muted, dusty pink with warm undertones works like a neutral, adding a pop of interest to spaces you might otherwise paint gray or beige. Consider using this warm pink in a sunroom, foyer, or even a spare bedroom. It looks stunning when paired with warm grays.
- Bringing Nature Inside
Nature-inspired spaces have been trendy for a while, and that trend should stick around through 2023. Think potted plants, decor made from bamboo, and large picture windows that capture the perfect outdoor scene. This trend is all about bringing the outdoors in. Spaces decorated in this way feel so ethereal and relaxing. Plus, you can feel good about using sustainable elements in your decor.
- Dark Counters
If you're remodeling your kitchen, definitely give dark-colored counters a second glance. They look incredible when paired with white or light cabinets. Matte black stone is really trendy right now, as is any pattern of darker granite.
Gone are the days when stripes were just for mimes and referees. The interior design industry is fully embracing stripes – especially black and white stripes. Consider painting your stairway walls in a striped pattern. The look could also be fun in a half-bath or even in a bonus room. Pair your striped walls with bold, jewel-toned furniture for a really sharp look.
- Statement Rugs
Carpet is becoming less common as it can trap allergens and be tough to clean. But area rugs are as popular as ever, and today, they are making a statement. Look for a bold, patterned area rug that you adore, and use it as the focal point of your bedroom, living room, or dining room. Decorate with colors found in the rug for a unified look.
Gold-plated decor looks luxurious and inviting. We've seen gold pendant lights in kitchens, gold faucets in bathrooms, and even gold hardware on bedroom dressers. Pair gold with cream or white for a very on-trend look.
- Wine Displays
Artistic wine holders and wine racks are becoming features in living rooms and dining rooms. If you have a few beautiful bottles that you love, work them into your decor for 2023.
