Year over year, trends in fashion and interior design carry us into 365 days of new memories and style. Looking toward 2023, we have seen shifts in colorways and design that will make this year one to remember.
Pops of Color
Last year, saw a rise in moody interiors, earthly tones and dark wall colors but, while this trend continues into the new year, bright pops of color are to be expected.
Pantone’s color of the year is Viva Magenta, a bright pinky hue. Among neutrals and dark tones, this burst of color will add energy to the space and make quite a statement. Because of this impact, we suggest using bold colors in open living spaces rather than the bedroom or small rooms.
If you’re looking to integrate color into your home, start with accents, pillows, and throws to play with the style and, as we approach spring, welcome more color and lean into this burgeoning trend.
Mid-century modern furniture and decor have captured the attention of stylists everywhere. Continuing into 2023, classic mid-century design with rounded lines, dark natural woods, and vibrant colors have gone mainstream.
Replicate this look by finding a bold furniture piece to style around or introducing geometric accents or lighting to a space. A total renovation is not necessary with pieces like these local finds:
Create a space that is curated not cookie-cutter. Waste-reducing practices like antiquing and repurposing have led to a trend of mixing furniture and styles. Rather than surrounding a table with six identical chairs, a wooden bench can now find itself across the table from a velvet dining chair and the styling opportunities are nearly endless.
With this trend, it is a good idea to consult a designer or stylist who will help you balance found and new items to look elevated and intentional rather than hodge-podge. Keep in mind that local antique stores are a great source of material and inspiration to accompany new purchases.
Check out Home Again JH, Fighting Bear, or Eclectic Consignment for fun local finds.
When it becomes hard to keep up with the trends, you can’t go wrong with timeless staples like leather, solid wood and neutral tones. Leather goods will wear with time and age beautifully over the years, solid wooden furniture is hard to find but resilient to damage and grounding with it’s dark tones and wood grain and neutral tones can be evolved with the addition of colors and accents. As trends come and go, evolve your space and welcome creativity through style – a new year and a new look.
