Interior renovationsHome Décor Trends for 2023
Every year, home décor and interior design experts give a ruling over the year’s trends. As a result, our team of writers puts together a ton of articles on the matter, spanning all rooms, one renovation project at a time, on a yearly basis. This article will serve as a guideline for all things home décor for 2023. Luckily, we seem to have chosen trends that are here to stay, for the long run, and that can easily be tweaked to suit your preferences.
Over the last 2 or 3 years, specific trends have stood out amongst the rest and are coming back, full throttle this year: the vintage and retro looks—meaning everything that has to do with nature and sustainability, and never-ending creativity.
However, if you want to find out which styles to steer clear of, check out our article: Home Interior Design Trends to Avoid this Year.
This concept has a propensity to mend the gap between indoors and outdoors. Organic or biological elements are front and centre: shapes, natural textures and materials, nature-themed decorative accents, etc. The prevailing colours are of a matte finish and earth-toned, conjuring up a seaside, forest, or beach.
The preferred materials and items of a biophilic design:
This trend also encourages the use of recycled, eco-responsible, and sustainable materials. It’s increasingly important to support local businesses and resources, purchase second-hand items, or craft your own décor.
To make a connection between the “recycling” aspect of this trend, vintage or retro items are deemed stylish. Art Deco and Mid-Century Modern designs—wistful references to the 50s and 80s—are all too inspiring! They’re very reminiscent of the pin-up aesthetic, also that of the eclectic, hippie movement, needless to say, it’s quite unorthodox.
Browse secondhand outlets, thrift stores, classified ads websites, and charity shops to uncover rare and unique finds at a bargain!
True to its name, this style steers toward bold, grandiose, and indulgent designs. As such, the rooms spanning your home are a reflection of your personality, albeit it borders on exuberance, it remains in vogue this year. Rich colours, souvenirs, passions, unique art, enormous patterns, overlapping concepts, themes, and alternative and showy indie looks are prescribed!
For those looking to give this look a go, but are wary of showcasing it for all to see, a happy medium could be embracing the maximalism look in a room, tucked away, located on an upper floor or in a closed home office.
Rounded shapes and curved lines are featured once again in homes! Whether for furniture, architecture, or decorative elements, swerved lines are a part of the décor. Not only are these fun and original, but this geometrical shape is also rather reminiscent of a certain softness and romanticism.
Round furniture and decorative item ideas:
Ball-shaped light fixture
Roundback accent chair and ottoman
Curved kitchen island
Round coffee or dining room table
This year, neutral, calm, warm, and soothing colour palettes are favoured. Consider nature-inspired ideas to embellish your walls and textiles: terracotta, clay, lavender, curry yellow, cinnamon brown, burnt orange, sage green, etc.

First off, note that if quality is what you’re seeking, beware of low prices and inquire as to the carpet’s origin. It may be that there’s a lack of ethics behind the manufacturing process or it simply wasn’t made with genuine, natural materials as advertised. Besides this, you’ll find rugs of all colours, shapes, and prices on the market.
Area rugs are, first and foremost, used to draw attention to a focal area of a specific room, add some punch to a rather monochromatic setting and render strategic areas more comfortable. Feel free to layer different patterned and shaped rugs atop one another!
Golden hues are back in style. It suits most home décors and colours and can add a touch of luxury to any given room. With the fear of abusing said shade, consider featuring it by way of a light fixture, faucet, furniture feet or knobs, a few trinkets, or decorative accessories. In a nutshell, there are several options, whether you’re a fan of gold-coloured items or not.
Personalizing a décor is at the forefront when it comes to factors that must be prioritized. This trend offsets that of minimalism or immaculate whites seen between 2000 and 2015. Why not feature family heirlooms or items reminiscent of your childhood? Your grandmother’s vintage tea set or pictures of past travels—all in moderation—must have a dedicated space within your décor.
Regarding this matter, interior designers often provide guidelines that suit the masses:
Surprisingly, terrazzo has been making a comeback since 2020, showcasing patterns that are as diverse as they are colourful.
This trend calls for large-format tiles, oversized even, making the space in question appear bigger.
On the other hand, small square-shaped tiles, like zellige tiles (enamel-coated terracotta tiles handmade in Morocco) are just as sought-after.
Tone-on-tone colour schemes and earth-toned tiles of various geometric patterns are also popular.
Textured ceramic tiles or those with raised patterns are super stylish.
