What are the new emerging trends for our homes for 2023?
The end of open-plan: For many years, properties have been moving towards open-plan living, large spaces zoned only by furniture that allows the whole family to be together, whether preparing meals, eating, chatting, doing homework or watching tv. But it would seem that the future trends are turning their backs on large open rooms, choosing instead to look at separate rooms reminiscent of older properties. Having different rooms gives more privacy and makes it easier to keep the rooms warm.
The end of crisp, contemporary design:
For many years our homes, for the most part, have been painted white and grey, with a crisp contemporary design, softened by cushions and blankets in muted colours. But, moving into 2023, we see a move away from this style.
The end of minimalism:
Simple, clutter-free homes without fuss are being filled with interesting items or curiosity. Quirky lamp shades and candle holders, or exciting pictures and accessories. A minimalist style is so last season.
So, what do we see instead?
Layout alterations: Separate rooms reminiscent of our homes from years ago. This could be a throwback from lockdown, where everyone was always at home. Possibly, this comes down to needing working spaces as we work from home more now, meaning that dining rooms and spare bedrooms are converted into office spaces. Open-plan living removes the opportunity for privacy and seclusion, which is vital when trying to work. But also good to have somewhere else in the home to move to when we needed a change of scenery but couldn't go outside.
Patterns: Stripes are having a come-back with striped fabrics in bedding, curtains, rugs, and even carpets.
Maximalism: opting for a cosy maximal style instead. Luscious fabrics and deep pile rugs with large, vibrant patterns.
Antique styles: In the decline of contemporary modern design, antique styles are seeing a revival, with elements of antique furniture and wallpapers being very popular.
Bright colours: Rich and bright colour schemes are replacing the stark white and grey we have seen for many years. This is further solidified by Pantone announcing their colour of 2023, Viva Magenta. Of this colour, they say, "vibrates with vim and vigour. It is a shade rooted in nature descending from the red family and expressive of a new signal of strength. Viva Magenta is brave, fearless, and a pulsating colour whose exuberance promotes a joyous and optimistic celebration, writing a new narrative."
This year's Color of the Year is powerful and empowering. The team at Pantone say, "Viva Magenta welcomes anyone and everyone with the same verve for life and a rebellious spirit. It is a colour that is audacious, full of wit and inclusive of all."
It is a new animated red that revels in pure joy, encouraging experimentation and self-expression without restraint, an electrifying and boundaryless shade that manifests as a stand-out statement.
