As the new year approaches, many of us are looking to update our living rooms. We want to ensure they look modern and stylish while still being comfortable and inviting. So to give your living room a fresh new look in 2023, here are some of the most popular trends in living room decor.
Living Rooms as Multi-purpose Space: Many spaces in our homes have grown to develop more than one purpose, but another space that should be multifunctional is your living room. This can include having a workstation, an entertainment area, or even a reading nook. By utilizing the space you have in your living room in multiple ways, you can create a functional and aesthetically pleasing area.
Warm and Calming Neutrals: Jill Elliott, the founder of Color Kind Studio, predicts a change in living room color schemes for 2023. “In the living room, we are seeing warm, calming blues, peach-pinks, and sophisticated neutrals like sable, mushroom, and ecru.” These colors help to create an atmosphere of relaxation without sacrificing style! With their muted tones and subtle hues, these colors can be used together for a stunning effect or individually for a subdued look.
Curves Everywhere: While it’s been on the rise for a few years now, designer Grey Joyner tells us that curves will be ever-present in 2023. “Curved upholstery, such as curved back sofas and barrel chairs, as well as round pillows and accessories, seem to be making a comeback for 2023,” Joyner says. Not only do curves offer a unique look that will set your living room apart from others, but they also create an inviting atmosphere that encourages conversation.
Natural Inspiration: Natural elements like marble, rattan, wicker, and cane will continue to have a strong presence in design this year. Along with this, earth tones seem to be sticking around. The popularity of neutral colors like browns and grays is on the rise again, with many homeowners opting for shades of yellow or blue to add an element of vibrancy. Adding touches of natural materials can make any room feel more alive while still keeping it grounded in minimalism and relaxation. Furthermore, incorporating nature into your home allows you to bring the outdoors inside easily.
2023 is shaping up to be an exciting year for home decor trends! From adding texture with wallpaper or artwork to creating multi-purpose spaces with furniture arrangements that maximize usability without sacrificing aesthetics, from utilizing warm neutrals for a calming atmosphere to embracing color with accent pieces, this upcoming year promises plenty of opportunities for anyone ready to refresh their living rooms! With these tips in mind, you can start planning how best to make over your own space this year!
