Nostalgic design is a really exciting style as it can’t be boxed into one strict design language, it’s all about an individual’s memories of past spaces. It’s not really about vintage, it’s more of granny-chic evolving to a less kitschy/more sophisticated style. Such design is also sustainable, and sustainability needs to be at the forefront of design. Just don’t forget to infuse some younger elements into the room to keep it current. For example, swap out the oil painting you have in a gilt frame for something contemporary. It’s a subtle but impactful substitution.

Many people today are shifting away from neutral, Pinterest-perfect rooms and opting instead for cozier spaces that feature personal collections, layered textiles, unique art, and a mix of old and new furnishings. We have seen so much minimalism over the last few years; homeowners are now craving warmth, depth, and character in their personal spaces.

People are becoming more mindful of choosing environmentally friendly options, and rightly so, as the conversation and importance of sustainable design will begin to take center stage. People are increasingly asking ‘where is this made,’ ‘how is this made,’ etc. People are going to begin investing more in quality products that will stand the test of time. Rather than buying something cheap to get the look at the moment, people will be more selective about what they put in their home in order to have it for years to come.

The neutral, warm and cozy look is going to add some additions in 2023. People are starting to embrace colors, but not in the bold, vibrant hues. They are starting to value different shades other than green, brown and blues that are seen as more earthy and calming.

People are nervous to commit when it comes to interior design, and so everything becomes bland with block shades of neutral plainness. Rugs offer a convenient and noncommittal way to add pattern and personality into a room. Particularly oddly or misshapen rugs favoring asymmetry are going to be a trend. This again leans into our desire for highly-personalized and unique interiors and, of course, maximalism.

In 2022, plaster and lime wash started to make their way into design again—and 2023 is going to be the year it is infused deep into the design of everyone’s homes. While you could certainly opt for textured lime wash walls, even adding a plaster hood in your kitchen (one of the biggest kitchen trends for 2023) can create a major visual impact in your space.
