Top 10 interior design trends you'll see in 2023

Post-pandemic, many of us know the value of sprucing up our spaces and making the most of clever design in our homes. Whether it’s funky kitsch furniture that brings you joy, colourful kitchen designs or bringing the essence of the outside inside, we’re more aware than ever of the impact our surroundings have on our mental and physical wellbeing.


Warmth, comfort and creativity are the words of the year when it comes to home interiors. Chestnut Homes’ sales manager, Helene Key, outlines the top 10 trends to look out for in 2023 and how you can recreate them at home.


1. Bright and beautiful

Embrace the idea of dopamine dressing for your home. We’re shunning the blank walls and beige décor of 2021 and 2022 and opting for a full burst of colour. It’s no coincidence that pantone’s colour of 2023 is Viva Magenta, a bold shade that really makes a statement.


2. Upcycling old pieces

Sustainability in the home is at the forefront of everyone’s mind in 2023. It’s a trend in the world of fashion but also in homes and interiors, with many people recycling and renewing older pieces to breathe new life into their home. We’re all about the story behind pieces and their origin.


3. Marvellous maximalism

Marie Kondo herself has embraced the clutter of daily life and is now foregoing a perfectly manicured home. We’re seeing fun and flamboyant maximalist design coming into its own. ‘More is more’ is the mantra we’re sticking to, with feature pieces, a mixture of colour and textures and plenty of contemporary patterns.

4. Statement lamps

Different levels of soft lighting help to make a room feel more inviting and relaxed. From burnished mushroom lamps in strong metallic colours, bubble lighting and delicate paper shades - statement standing lamps are everywhere. Put your personal stamp on a room by creating a fun focal point and bringing a little brightness all in one go.


5. Hidden home offices

Ever since more of us turned to working from home more frequently, clever office designs and quiet spaces have become more important than ever. Built in desks to save on floor space, using cupboards under the stairs and even offices hidden inside fitted wardrobes are all ideas for solving the issue of finding dedicated workspaces.


6. Striking rugs

In 2023 you can expect to see plenty of runner rugs with intricate designs, interesting geometric patterns and natural materials spun from plant fibers. From vintage, antique-inspired designs to ultra-modern rugs in unconventional shapes and experimental colours, rugs are a simple way to add warmth and a final creative flourish to a room.


7. 70’s style

In the world of interiors, we’re reveling in a retro throwback to seventies design hallmarks. Wiggly, free-form homeware, plush textures and eye-catching prints are a great way to breathe life into a home. A stunning array of oranges and sunset hues are the order of the day, along with warm brown tones and dark wood.


8. Downtime décor

With more of us valuing time at home with friends and family and a better work-life balance, quiet areas with a focus on wellness and wellbeing are becoming key to home design. We’re all looking to have dedicated spaces to switch off, whether it’s a calm reading nook, a luxurious bathroom filled with plants, a technology-free living room or an outside patio filled with plush sofas and patio furniture.


9. Eye-catching wallpaper

Wallpaper isn’t just for your walls anymore. Interior designers are experimenting with stunning ceiling designs, backed bookcases, staircase facings and bold feature walls and wardrobes. A creative use of wallpaper adds an element of visual interest to an otherwise minimalist room and is an easy way of carrying a style throughout your house without it being completely overwhelming.

10. Bespoke headboards

From upgrading basic headboards to creating your own based on Tik Tok trends, stylish headboards are having a revival. They’ve been cropping up in all shapes and sizes, in a variety of fabrics and patterns. Try experimenting with striking wooden slats, squishy curved columns and lush velvet fabrics for your next DIY challenge.
