Impactful Arches

Arches have been making noise in the interiors world of late, whether that’s creating interesting dimensions in new properties or renovations, or letting beautiful original features shine. 

Make them stand out with a mix of paper-covered and painted walls between the arch itself, or simply paint it another shade to the rest of the room.

We love the use of Nicola Lawrence’s wallpaper offsetting Louise Roe’s grand hallway arch, designed by interior design icons Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler.

Making The Most Of Windows

From pretty drapery to floor-pooling velvet, the curtain is making a comeback this year.

Curtains are notoriously expensive, but if you’re looking to invest in a space and make it cocooning and homely, this is one style update that will transform a room.

We love the scalloped edge of off-white and coral in this Brooklyn apartment and the striped Rose Sleeper Stripe drapes that add a fun but dramatic edge to sleeping quarters.

Green Bathrooms

We’ve had everything from metro tiles to clean marble finishes in recent years – even the avocado bath made a brief comeback – but 2023 welcomes a moodier, sophisticated dark green bathroom trend.

Set against nostalgic, retro touches like linen-shaded wall lights and tortoiseshell mirrors, it can add warmth and homeliness to a usually clean, cold space.

Modern Murals

Most want their home to be unique, an expression of their own style and a place to impress, and this trend ensures all three are covered. 

Bridging the gap between the interiors and the art world, bespoke murals on walls, furniture, and even ceilings are making a comeback. Artists like Meg Boscawen and Tess Newall take their brushes to all corners of the home – from nature-inspired watercolours on bathroom walls to pastel-hued scallop trims on antique wardrobes – to make the most mundane parts of a room magical. 

We love Newall’s hand-painted work that adds charm and character to this original feature fireplace, and Boscawen is definitely one to watch in the interiors world. Find out more in our exclusive interview with the artist.

Kitchen & Laundry Valances

In recent years, the kitchen has subscribed to polished, clean and practical trends, but given it’s usually the most used room in the house, why shouldn’t it be made warm and personal like a living room? 

Adding soft furnishings like a valance is an easy way to bring some charm to the space. Playing particularly well to period kitchens and country-esque designs, using textiles to hide under-the-sink cabinetry or line the inside of glass-finished cupboards will add a cosy edge.

The red gingham valance on Kip Hideaway's kitchen cabinetry showcases how to add a homely charm to the most loved room in the house.

Statement Natural Stones

2023 moves away from the white polished marble that’s reigned supreme on social media to more rustic, eclectic natural stones. From streaked statement “panda” marble to soft rose quartzite countertops and coffee tables, natural stones will make the most mundane of spaces in the home sing.

Cocooning Blues

Fashion influencer Lucy Williams turned her talent to renovating her stunning period new home in 2022. Her cool blue-toned living room was featured in House & Garden and, rightly so, became their most-liked image on the magazine’s Instagram feed.

We predict myriad iterations making their way into homes in 2023.

Creative Rooms

Perhaps it’s a welcomed hangover from lockdown but creating dedicated spaces in the home that are used for pleasure rather than function is fast becoming an interiors trend. From home libraries to music rooms, creative rooms that allow for a sense of escape and restoration are making waves in the interior world.

Let’s be honest, we’re not all blessed with the square footage to occupy an entire room just to get our cultural kicks, but creating a dedicated space in an existing room – a record corner or bringing books back into the home after years of the Kindle reigning supreme – can bring joy, colour and character to a space. 

And yes, we’re counting an at-home bar in the same camp, like this Salveson Graham-designed dreamy drinking den.

Wireless Lighting

It’s no secret that lighting is one of the most important elements to think about if you want to add mood and depth to your home. Wireless lighting is the modern way to create atmosphere in those areas of a room that can’t afford unsightly cables in view or actually have a plug socket to produce the power. 

Look to brands like Pooky who have created stunning rechargeable table lamps (charge them via USB)  that can be placed in the nook of a bookshelf, in the middle of an ottoman coffee table or even on an outdoor dining table in the summer months, to bring mood to your setting.

Coloured Concrete

The stark, industrial mood of concrete in interiors has been having a moment in recent years, from pared-back kitchen floors to bare living room walls and even pieces like dining tables and lamps.

2023 welcomes an interesting take on the trend with coloured concrete popping up in many a design studio’s portfolios. Adding colourful pigment to the material creates an unexpected edge to the usually unrefined finish, from azure blue sinks to full minty green bathrooms.
