Interior Design Trends 2023: 6 Home Design Trends That Are Set to Steal The Show

These are the interior design trends for 2023 setting the style agenda!


New year, new you – and the perfect pad to match! As we settle into 2023, we’re starting to see some exciting new trends make their way into our spaces. And after the last couple of years, where our homes became workplaces, daycares, schools, eateries, and gyms, it’s time for a fresh start to lift your interiors game. If you're a lover of style, you may be wondering what colour of furniture is in for 2023 and what are the interiors trends for 2023? 

Some are still going strong from last season, while others are completely new to the scene. With our interior design trends 2023 forecast, we take a deep dive into the six trends set to define a year where we give our homes renewed focus.

Fenton & Fenton

Colour Bombs

Colour is back, baby. Migrating away from the earthy, neutral tones that have been dominating our Pinterest boards for seasons, the new year brings a reinforced sense of playfulness through bold, bright colour palettes that command attention. A no-brainer during the warmer months, expect statement pops of eye-catching hues like the Dulux Diorite and Integra grounded with warm tones like Paper Brown or Lexicon® Quarter.

You can filter these vibrant hues into your existing decor by adding small accents like this Kip&Co x Ken Done Butterfly Dreams tablecloth or an exotic bedspread from Sydney-based homewares brand Luxotic.

If you are looking to update some of your key furniture pieces and are keen to make a big style statement, consider DesignByThem’s Confetti Coffee Table or the navy Thiago 3-seater velvet sofa from Temple & Webster.

Centsational Style

Tantalising Textures

Whether it’s a Cobble Fabric Occasional Armchair from Freedom or a stunning statement rug from Armadillo, adding texture is one of the easiest ways to add warmth to any space. And this year, we’re shining the spotlight on walls. Rental and budget-friendly, we’re absolutely loving the flexibility of removable wallpaper and Luxe Walls textured prints are about to become your favourite too. For something more permanent, consider an elegant limewash treatment for the living room or a striking stone accent wall for the bathroom.

Elle Decor

Vintage Eclecticism

Bye, bye minimalism, hello busy! Exciting! Clashing! Much like colour trends, we’re seeing a more is more approach to styling and home décor in 2023. Giving the green light to explore a variety of style influences within a single space, it’s time to get creative and find your niche. Under interior design’s new wave of eclecticism, you can expect mixing rather than matching, with explosive spaces fully expressing your individual personality through colour, textures and above all themes.

When we want to be bold and brave in styling, we go straight to Fenton & Fenton for furniture, décor, art, homewares, and interior styling advice. For an injection of colour and warmth on your walls, Jai Vasicek's vibrant artworks fit the brief. The Betsy Armchair comes in unique shades of pink, neon green and tangerine while the Modern Shapes Dhurrie Rug in dusty pinks promises to liven up any living room.


Chic Tech

Say goodbye to boring, bulky white goods and hello to chic appliances that you’ll actually want to have on display. Sleek and spacious, Samsung’s beautiful bespoke fridges are at the top of our wish list. Allowing you to mix and match panels and styles, you can also choose between finishes including pink, navy, satin blue, grey, beige, and more.

Out in the living room, tech-savvy stylists are swooning over The Frame. Taking you from Netflix to formal entertaining in seconds, this tasteful television lets you enjoy a private exhibit of curated artworks when your TV is switched off. For the furniture obsessed, check out the Sobro coffee table. With a sleek exterior finish and a tempered glass tabletop, there is very little this other-worldly invention cannot do – think light up, play music, charge your phone and laptop, keep your drinks cold and surfaces decluttered.


Personal Sanctuaries

Forget man caves and glam rooms, this year it’s all about wellness spaces. With busy work, family and social lives running us off our feet, more and more of us are looking to our homes to relax, retreat and recentre. Whether it's yoga and morning meditation or a post-work Pilates session, building your very own personal sanctuary can be as simple as adding some indoor plants or a Devanti Aromatherapy Diffuser.

For those working with a little more space and budget, consider a Pilates Master PM-01 Studio Reformer or Pelaton bike for movement, and a heavenly home sauna from Luxo Living for recovery.

McMullin & Co’s

Contemporary Curves

Curves and shapely sculptural elements are set to return in 2023 and have permeated all home décor, from Bed Threads’ scalloped pillowcases to furniture, like McMullin & Co’s curved boucle bed head. In adding small cosmetics touches to your home interior, you can incorporate shapely features, like Freedom’s Ovie floor mirror.  

To curate the perfect trans-seasonal alfresco oasis, turn to Aussie outdoor specialist Robert Plumb for striking statement pieces, like the Loop outdoor chair by Swiss industrial designer Willy Guhl. For the furniture obsessed, consider a practical art piece in the form of the regal pleat velvet sofa from Early Settler.

Our interior design trends 2023 forecast further delves into how we can make our houses, no matter their size, feel more like home while drawing on timeless style. From lighting and crockery to wall finishes and feature pieces, there’s plenty to consider when building a place to call your own.
