Every so often you should update your home and give it a fresh look. Redecorating is not only visually appealing, it’s good for your mental health as well. So this is why the new year is the perfect time to make changes to your décor. In 2023 we see several new trends that are worth getting excited about. Let's have a look at some of them…
After being in style for years gray is out in 2023! Instead, this year we see a lot of rich moody colors, earthy tones (especially browns), and softer whites.The trend is to create a mood that is cozy and warm. Below we look at the 2023 colors of the year from some of the most popular paint companies.

TRENDS IN ACCESSORIES
SEAGRASS WOVEN MATS
Seagrass woven mats are all the rage. This year they fit in with any style of room décor.
Plaid seems to never go out of style but this year it’s even more popular with patterns being offered in many different colors and fabrics.
This year we see stripes on walls, wallpaper and home accents.
In 2023 rattan is seen in a variety of products, from chairs and tables to trays and baskets and other home accessories. Rattan gives a warm natural feel to your room décor.
Statement rugs are large and make a “big statement” in a room by creating visual interest with unique patterns, textures, and colors.
HANDMADE LOCAL ITEMS
Handmade items are trending big time in 2023. Not only do they add a unique look to your room décor, you will be supporting small business as well.
Wood furniture and accent pieces such as buffets, dressers, benches, tables, clocks, and vases are also popular in 2023 and can be used in many types of home designs. Wood brings a natural element to your home which creates a nature inspired look and adds warmth to a space.
Mid Century Modern, Modern Farmhouse and Boho Style are still popular designs which have been updated this year. However, some of the new and increasingly popular design trends of 2023 are Biophilic Design, Gothic Design, 1970’s Decor and of course Sustainability.
Biophilic design is even bigger in 2023 for home décor styles. Initially a concept used in the building industry, it is now popular in our homes. Bring the natural life into your home with plants, pottery, baskets, natural seagrass, wooden tables, paintings, and nature colors like green and blue tones that are calming.
If you like a more theatrical look, Gothic Design is also popular this year. To create this cool look, use rich, dark moody colors on bedroom and living room walls as well as in accessories. Decorate using candles, colored glass, wrought iron chandelier, large beds, chests, arches, heavy drapery, and unique pieces-think medieval castle!
1970s décor is making a comeback this year. Earthy colours like green, orange, and yellow, bold wallpaper, bold patterns, plants, terrazzo tiles, rattan, macramé, brick walls and modular furniture create the look.
Last but definitely NOT least… Sustainability is a top trend in 2023 as more and more people are becoming aware of the impact they personally have on the planet. This style is a way of connecting to the natural environment via furnishings and accents. There is a rise in popularity for recycled home décor products, furniture made from natural materials, antiques, second hand items, handmade items, and a color for walls that create a feeling of serenity. Buy sustainable products that will minimize environmental impact and are safe for your family.
