Design Trends 2023

 

Moving into 2023, many of us will be thinking about refreshing our living spaces. We have been looking into the upcoming trends, so you don’t have to.  

Sustainability has been a big feature in many interior design trends over the last few years and this continues into 2023. Many manufacturers are producing goods that are sustainable and/or recyclable and are also working to reduce or offset their carbon footprint. 

The colour of the year for 2023 is Digital Lavender, hitting many of the spots for the coming interior trends. Here’s a rundown of what will be the in thing for your bedroom this year. 

Biophilic design


Biophilic Design

In keeping with the idea of sustainability, biophilic designs have been floating around for a while now. The idea of becoming closer to nature through design using natural materials and plants all tying in together to create a calm and peaceful environment.  

To truly engage with this design, consider cooler tones and abstract prints for the walls, embrace natural light and open windows. Natural furnishings will be key to creating this peaceful oasis. Why not pair one of our wooden frames, such as the Friendship Mill Shaker with a mattress containing natural fillings, like the Hypnos Origins range. Alternatively, the Smoothtech range from Millbrook also have natural fillings and are fully sustainable and recyclable. 

Another way of connecting with nature is to add plants into the equation. A few recommendations for you are Lavender, which has air-purifying properties and aromatherapy benefits perfect for a blissful bedroom; and, if you don’t have much of a green thumb, hardier plants such as English Ivy or a Snake Plant. 

Japandi Design


Japandi

"Japandi" has become the term for interiors that combine Japanese minimalism with Scandinavian functionality. The style's key characteristics include simple, pared-back designs and natural materials. Bare branches and dried flowers add an organic touch to the interiors, which also feature a lot of wood, which is popular in both Japanese and Scandinavian design. It is minimalist yet inviting, with a focus on neutral tones, lots of textures, and natural materials. 

To achieve this Japandi trend, why not consider the Bentley Riva Rustic Oak Panel Frame with its beautiful wood grain and sleek modern yet traditional style, this would be the perfect centre piece to a Japandi inspired bedroom. Pair the bed with simple white linens and washed-out cushions in shades similar to wonderful Japanese watercolours, think jade, keppel blue, sea green, myrtle, fawn, and vermilion orange. Add simple side tables adorned with rustic clay vases displaying pampas grasses for a truly nature-inspired back to basics design aesthetic.  

For the more budget conscious, why not look at the Friendship Mill Studio Bed Frame. So simple and elegant, it really speaks of the Japanese function over aesthetic principle, with its natural pine frame bringing in those Scandinavian warm tones. A stunning yet understated bed to really work around to create a truly calming Japandi-led bedroom.  

Art Deco


Art Deco

It’s 2023, right? Or 1923? Well… 100 years on, Art Deco is back with a vengeance! Welcome to the Roaring 20s of the new Millennium and your bedroom will be puttin on the Ritz! It may seem that Art Deco has never really gone away, but it is returning with a bang for bedrooms in 2023! An easy way to add glamour to a bedroom, Art Deco styling combines detailed touches with a considered palette. Along with neutral base colours, finishing flourishes in brighter jewel tones can really bring the Art Deco look to life. Consider jewel tones like sapphire, emerald, and gold, which can easily be incorporated into an existing colour scheme through cushions, throws, or even a statement accent chair in velvet, a fantastic texture harkening back to the 1920s.  

Why not choose one of our Divan bases, perfect for storing away clutter. To achieve the Art Deco brief, we’d recommend adding a statement headboard such as the Mi-Design Madison, Madrid or Empire.  

Vintage interiors


Antique/Heirloom

Vintage interiors are becoming more popular, bringing old fashioned classics into the modern times. Many people are restoring or repurposing furniture and furnishings, so dust off the inherited furniture and shake out the quilted bedspread, they’ll come in handy! 

You may be wondering how you can make your house and in turn your bedroom more vintage; well, don’t worry, we have some ideas for you.  

Accent walls are a classic feature of a vintage room, something boldly patterned or coloured, if that’s not your style, try a vintage art piece or an ornate mirror. Bring this together with the beautiful Krystal Antique Brass bed from Bentley designs and a handmade quilt. 

Alternatively, you could pair distressed wooden furniture pieces with the Mi-Design Belle View winged frame, a traditional style for the new year.  

All in all, the trends for 2023 take us on a trip to the past, while encouraging us to preserve the future. Look into sustainability with the furniture you buy for your home, to invest in climate change that will also allow you to maintain the quality you expect. 

We believe that interiors and our homes in general should speak of our own personality, our homes should be a sanctuary and utopia to ourselves, a place to recharge, relax and a place to truly be you. Don’t ever be scared to go against the grain when it comes to style. Stand out, be bold, be you.  

2023 is the year of contrasts, neutrality, and boldness, oftentimes paired together in one. Who says that you can’t have it all?
