As the seasons change, so do interior design trends. If you want to refresh your home for spring 2023, consider incorporating some of the latest design styles into your decor. From bold colors to natural materials, there are plenty of exciting design ideas to explore. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at six interior design trends that are set to be big in 2023. Whether you’re planning a full-scale renovation or just looking to update a few key pieces, these trends are sure to inspire.

1. Bold, Vivid Colors
Say goodbye to muted tones and hello to bold and vibrant hues. Designers are incorporating bright and bold colors into their interior design schemes. From jewel tones like emerald and sapphire, to warm hues like mustard and terracotta, these bold colors will make a statement. Bold hues are perfect for injecting energy and life into your home and are particularly effective when used in rooms that lack natural light. Additionally, you can use bold colors as an accent to elevate the look of neutral or monochromatic spaces.

2. Organic Lighting
Bring a touch of nature into your home with organic lighting fixtures. Think woven or rattan pendants, or fixtures made from natural materials like wood, bamboo, and stone. Organic fixtures not only provide an earthy and calming ambiance to a room, but they can also be conversation starters, adding unique and eye-catching elements to your decor, like in this beautiful Plan 3 bedroom at Beach House at The Dunes. Additionally, these fixtures can be incorporated into various design styles, ranging from bohemian and coastal to modern and industrial.

3. Vanilla Vibes
White-on-white interiors have been popular for years, but in 2023, vanilla is the new white. Soft and warm, vanilla tones create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Pair vanilla walls with creamy furnishings and accents for a look that is both sophisticated and comfortable. One of the benefits of a vanilla color scheme is its versatility, as it can easily be paired with a variety of accent colors, patterns, and textures to create a personalized and unique look, like in this Plan 3 home at Sea House at The Dunes. Incorporating natural materials such as wood, rattan, or linen can help enhance the warm and welcoming feel of a vanilla interior.

4. Green is the New Gray
Move over, gray. In 2023, green is taking over as the new coveted neutral. From mossy greens to vibrant chartreuse, this versatile color pairs well with almost any other hue. Bring the outdoors in with green walls, furniture, and accessories. A calming and refreshing color, green is an ideal choice for bedrooms and bathrooms, and its versatility allows it to be incorporated into other areas of the home, like in this Plan 6 home at The Enclave. Whether used as a statement color or a subtle accent, green adds a touch of nature and tranquility to any space.

5. Mixed Metal Finishes
Mix and match different metal finishes for a modern and eclectic look. Think brass, copper, and gold paired with silver and blackened metals. When done right, this trend adds visual interest and depth to any space. Mixed metals can also be used to tie together different design elements in a room, such as coordinating with the hardware on cabinetry or the finish on light fixtures. By combining metals in unexpected ways, you can create a look that is both polished and edgy.

6. Natural Stone Surfaces
Natural stone surfaces, like marble, granite, and limestone, add texture and depth to any room. From countertops and backsplashes to accent walls and flooring, these materials are both beautiful and versatile in terms of color and pattern, and can easily complement or contrast with other design elements in a room. Plus, they pair well with various design styles, from traditional to modern. Their natural appeal, like in this Plan 4 primary bath at Orchard Trails, ensures that will look stunning for years to come.
