Top 5 Interior Trends of 2023

Top 5 Interior Trends of 2023

1. Natural Materials

In 2023, raw materials such as wood, stone, and linen will continue to be a huge trend. We are seeking to bring the outdoors in, and what better way to do so than by incorporating natural materials into your decor.

Wooden furniture pieces such as dining tables, chairs and coffee tables are particularly popular, as are stone tiles, benchtops and accents. To incorporate this trend into your home, consider investing in wooden side tables or adding a stone accent vase or sculptural decor piece to your space. It’s always popular to add large floor rugs in Australia, woven from natural fibres such as premium wool to bring comfort and style.

2. Bold Colours

While neutral colours have been popular for the past few years, 2023 is the year of bold, bright colours. Looking to make a statement in your home decor this year?

Why not start by investing in a colourful armchair or add a large, colourful rug in your favourite shade, such as a rich blue, deep green or bright rust to instantly add character to your living room. Whether you prefer a plush pile or a flat weave, there are plenty of extra large rug options in Australia that can help you bring this trend to life.

3. Mixed Textures

Interior designers are experimenting with mixing textures to create a layered, cozy look. Pair a luxurious velvet couch, chunky woven throw blankets, and fluffy pillows for a comfortable and stylish space. To achieve this effect in your lounge room, consider adding lounge room rugs in Australia with a textured weave. Complete the look with velvet curtains and a fluffy ottoman to create a cohesive, inviting atmosphere.

4. Sustainable Design

Sustainability is more important than ever, and interior design is no exception. When incorporating new decor into your home, seek out eco-friendly and sustainable options.

To add an extra eco-conscious touch, consider placing a rug under your dining table made from sustainable and natural materials. You can also invest in locally made furniture or accessories made from recycled materials. Energy-efficient LED bulbs can also make a difference, so why not swap out your traditional light bulbs for these eco-friendly alternatives? By making these small changes, you can make a big difference to the environment while still creating a stylish and welcoming home.

5. Artisanal Handcrafted Pieces

There is a huge move towards seeking out unique, one-of-a-kind pieces that add individual personality and character to our homes. Think handmade rugs, ceramic bowls, woven baskets, and hand-carved wooden or stone furniture.

To create a unique look in your home, invest in a few artisanal pieces, such as a handmade vase or a hand-carved coffee table. For a bigger impact, elevate your decor with a touch of luxury by adding luxury rugs for your living room to create a personalised and inviting space that you’ll love spending time in.
