The fact that Benjamin Moore’s Color of the Year is Raspberry Blush is a hint that interior design is warming up after years of neutral tones. Expect to see more deep jewel tones, luxuriant textures and wood enhancing today’s subdued decor.
Some people are even buying into maximalism with an array of colorful patterns, a profusion of plants, interesting collections and layered textures. If a wild array of contrasting patterns and animal prints is not your style, try adding some exciting accents to your neutral decor in the coming year. While not every trend is worth following, here are some concepts that should be on your radar for 2023.
More Jewel Tones
Rich, colorful jewel tones are likely to make a comeback this year. Think sumptuous ruby reds, topaz yellows, sapphire blues and deep tourmaline greens that bring the outdoors in. While it is possible to use vivid jewel tones as accents in your decor, keep in mind that pairing them with less saturated colors may not work. And when it comes to jewel tones, a small amount will go a long way.
This year people will be adding a layered look with textures that can give the interior a sophisticated, high end appearance. From wall treatments to interesting furniture and luxurious accessories, look at textures enhancing both neutral and vibrant color palettes to give your home a finished feeling. Textured fabrics like leather furniture add to the look.
A Touch of Wood
Nothing warms up home decor like a stunning piece of furniture in a rich wood tone. You may decide to incorporate a beautifully designed wood dining room set, or a wood dinette set for your breakfast nook. If you prefer more subtle touches, there are plenty of accent pieces you can add to make your home a showplace. Think stylish consoles, cabinets and wood framed chairs.
Another way to add interest to your interior decor this year is to incorporate metallics, especially gold. Restrained use of gold metal in the right places can make your space feel more balanced, without feeling overwhelming. Copper and silver accents can also work.
Molding for the ceiling and walls is a classic look that adds charm to your home and never goes out of style. Think gorgeous molding like thick crown molding, delicate dentil molding and ornamental molding that can create a pattern on the walls for added interest.
Dark and Moody Wall Colors
If you are tired of your white walls, try dark and moody colors as a stunning statement. Pair with a high-style sofa for a bold look.
