The Hottest Home Styling Trends for 2023

The home styling trends to get on board with in the new year.

Tis the season to update your interiors. The start of a new year makes us all feel lighter and brighter, and that breezy mood naturally extends to where we live as well. To help you stay on top of the current trends, we asked interior stylist Rahnia Mackey to share what the hottest trends will be for this year– and how you can make it work for your space.

If 2023 is your year of upgrading your space, check out this top list of trends we’re predicting to see:

Living Loud

After the restrictions of the past couple of years, we’re ready to have fun – and that’s being reflected in our design choices from accent furniture to decor. “Bold colours are back in a big way,” says Rahnia. “People are purchasing lounges, accent chairs, even rugs that have bold colours and really create a mood in the space.

“If you’re not wanting to go all out and purchase big pieces you can add bold colours with cushions, vases and artwork.”

Get inspired by 2023’s Pantone Colour of the Year: Viva Magenta, a burst of bold pinkish-red.

Layer Upon Layer

Adding complexity to your interiors with textures is hugely popular, Rahnia says. “Layered textures are on trend and I am seeing lots of linens and lightweight materials complementing each other on bedding and lounges,” she explains. “Linen House offers an array of quilts, cushions and throws that can help bring this trend into your home.” If you’re ready to commit to this in a big way, textured walls are also having a moment.

Light it up

Lighting is no longer purely practical, it’s also sculptural. Expect to see a lot of pendant lights and lamps that make a statement, holding court as the centrepiece of the room. To take this trend to the next level, you could assemble several different oversized table lamps throughout the room.

Just like colour palettes, patterns are also going bold, with geometric checks, especially popular. Patterned designs look great in flooring or kitchen tiles, or go low key with decorative geometric bowls or vases.

Placing clashing patterns next to each other is a big feature of this trend. If you don’t want to commit to wallpaper or carpets with big patterns, try arranging different-patterned rugs next to each other, or framing printed boards next to each other in a cluster.
