These Design Trends Will Surpise You...
Wondering what’s popular for 2023? Here are a few of the big trends we see taking off and gaining momentum.
1. Color of the Year: Viva Magenta
Inspired by one of the brightest and strongest dyes in the world: cochineal. Read more about how and why magenta was chosen as the color of the year here.
2. Modern Take on Rustic
Whether your style is farmhouse chic, old world spanish, or rustic everything, think contrasting elements. Natural wood cabinets and natural stone countertops create the perfect balance with modern kitchen features. They will give you a look that’s fresh with a nod to the past. A great trend for people wanting a classic design with some modern day style and conveniences.
3. Get Sublime with Limewash
Want to give your walls some interesting texture without using chemicals? Try limewashing, it will give them a suede-like appearance with a beautiful patina. Designers, celebrities, and regular homeowners alike have fallen in love with this old-world, textured look, and it’s trending up, up, up! How does it work?
Limestone is crushed and heated, then thinned with water and colored with natural pigments—seems new but its it’s thought to be the first type of paint ever used, and can be found on ruins from the Roman Empire. Today, its popularity is due to eco-friendliness (natural lime and color pigments make it chemical-free). Limewashed walls adds depth and luminosity for a unique appearance.
4. Time to Lighten Up
Good lighting helps create the mood of your home and is important to both design and functionality. It influences how a room feels and can be an easy update. Right now we are seeing trends towards natural materials in 2023—a continuation of last year’s nature-focused design elements. Natural wood and bamboo chandeliers, as well as recycled-glass and rattan pieces will continue in popularity. Also trending wil be lighting fixtures made of mixed metals: gold, brass, and silver to add richness to room design.
