Hey , everyone .
Welcome back to my channel .
My name is Kristen and today we're jumping right into interior design and Home Decor Trends for 2023 .
If you're planning any renovation project this year or planning to redecorate , it's always a good idea to know what's trending .
So you don't accidentally make design decisions that are going to date your home even more .
But as always , trends do come and go .
So always remember just to do what you really love to your home so that you'll enjoy your space long term .
If you enjoy watching and find this video helpful , make sure give it a big thumbs up and hit that like button and let's go ahead and jump right into it .
I would say the main overall design trend that we're going to be highlighting this year is individualism , confidence and personality driven design , which means we're going to see a lot of great unique interiors .
It's all about how you can set your space apart from others and how you can really dress your home to be a perfect reflection of you .
So don't feel boxed in with design rules .
This year is all about breaking away and really coming up with a design that's going to be memorable and personal to you all about bringing in unique colors and one of a kind furniture pieces and furniture layouts that really work for your specific space .
I think we went through a very long phase of playing it safe with design where everyone picks similar color palettes , similar finishes and then everyone's home really starts to look alike .
So this year is all about setting your space apart , doing the opposite and bringing individualism design back into your home .
What's something that you're going to do to your home this year ?
That's going to set your space apart from your neighbors .
The encouragement of personnel driven design is definitely going to bring out a ton of bold colors this year through paint , Furniture , Art Decor , you're going to see bold rich colors throughout all of it .
These colors are really going to create memorable spaces .
They're gonna look dramatic and they're definitely a way to show your personality .
A lot of colors that are going to be trending more , are those colors that look like they've been around for decades that are usually a little bit more rich , deep and dark .
You'll notice that a lot of the paint companies are really lines of paint that are their historic line colors that are classic and Timeless and really have this gorgeous regal look to them .
So because we've done a lot of gray and white throughout the years , we're moving on to some color , moving on to some dramatic looks with some bold choices .
You can go all out with this with cabinetry and paint choices and built in colors , more of those permanent choices or you could play it safe and pick bold colors with your furniture or Decor or artwork to implement choices in a smaller way .
Now , when it comes to Decor and furniture , the best way to create a unique space is actually by shopping second hand and it's never been more on trend than right now to shop , second hand , find thrift , vintage and antique pieces .
Wherever you can .
Facebook marketplace , your local thrift store , a flea market anywhere you can get your hands on something that's very one of a kind and different will create a very unique bold space .
This is such a great of first of all , being sustainable and recycling , but also saving money and creating a unique space all at once .
It's a win win .
Always , you can find midcentury modern pieces that are super classic and will stand the test of time .
You can find gorgeous traditional pieces that will add such character to your home and you can find really something in every single style .
I love thrift , small things for around my home , like books and lamps and decor pieces , vases , ceramics , dishes , but I also like to thrift furniture .
So if you can find any of those things , add them to your home and you will absolutely be on trend this year .
Now , something you're going to see a lot of this year specifically in kitchen and bathroom design is bold , thick marble , anything with extreme veining , lots of contrast and color .
Picking a marble that's going to stand out and be memorable and kind of act as art to fill your space is going to be the choice this year .
So you can pick a bold marble for your counter .
You can run it up your back splash .
So you have that slab splash .
That's very on trend this year .
You can be bold with marble on your fireplace in your bathroom , but also making the bold decision to create that thicker look on the edge .
You can somewhat have your edge be waterfall down a little bit so that it creates the look of having a large thick piece of marble as your countertop , the thicker the countertop the better this year .
So anything over three inches is really going to give you that thick bold look .
Another the kitchen design trend that you're going to see a lot of this year , especially in new builds and renovations is the popularity of butler pantries .
I am so excited about these because butler pantries solve all your kitchen problems .
You can store all of your ugly appliances in there .
You can do all of your cooking and prep in there and it keeps your kitchen looking pristine and clean .
So walk in size pantries became very popular .
And now we're going the extra mile and incorporating appliances , counter tops and full prep spaces in there .
It's also a great way of kind of playing with design in a really fun way because you can play it safe in your large kitchen and you can have a lot more fun in your butler pantry because it's a smaller space .
It's kind of like the powder room of your bathrooms .
You can go bold with your cabinet color .
You can do different design choices back there because it's a little bit more hidden away .
So you're gonna notice a ton of butler pantries being added into home floor plans this year and I think it's the best decision we've ever made .
Here's one that you probably saw coming .
If you were someone that didn't follow into the white and gray trend , you're probably still stuck in the beige and brown trend .
And luckily for you , beige and brown are back 2023 is all about the beautiful browns and brown is coming in through Decor furniture , paint colors and brown is in .
So if you have those dark brown cabinets , dark brown wood around your home , dark brown paint colors , keep them and actually to them so that you can really create a trendy space this year .
You're gonna notice more brown sofas , more brown side chairs , brown leather , brown paint , dark brown flooring , brown rugs .
You're gonna notice that warm palette going throughout the entire home and I think it really creates a comfortable warm environment .
So if you find that your space is looking a little bit sterile and gray or a little bit too cool tone , bring in those chocolatey browns , bring in those warm tones , mix them in there and your space will auto radically be more on trend this year .
Now , we've been in the white furniture phase for quite a while now .
But now we're in the dark furniture phase 2023 is all about dark furniture , dark woods , dark upholstery , you're gonna notice deeper colors .
So instead of a big white sofa , you're gonna notice darker grays , browns , navies , all of these deeper colors , which is going to add a lot of elegance to your home , but it's definitely going to switch up the look of it a bit .
So my house is very light scale .
I have all white furniture doesn't mean I'm changing that .
I love all of my pieces .
I'm keeping them as is you're just gonna notice a lot less white furniture being sold and a lot more dark colored furniture being sold .
If you are looking for new pieces this year , bring in those deep bold colors because it will make your space on trend this year .
I think this is great news for anyone that has pets or Children because dark furniture is a lot easier to clean .
So you won't have to worry about the same kind of mess that you would with lighter colored furniture .
Another way of really creating a personality driven design in your home is implementing your hobbies .
If you have extra rooms around your home , implement a hobby room that could be a listening room .
Listening rooms are becoming very popular this year for listening to music and podcasts .
And they're kind of like a check out room so you can just sit there , you're not consuming visual content , you're just listening and kind of being in a calm space .
Those are becoming very popular .
You have record players and speakers and comfortable seating in there with calm lighting .
I've also seen a ton of craft rooms becoming big this year .
Reading rooms and libraries are also very popular if you are a reader and really love that calm space , creating an elegant library space would be so timeless classic and just be the perfect addition to your home .
But of course , we don't all have extra rooms in our home to dedicate to our hobbies .
So this doesn't have to be a full space .
It could be a little corner of your living room .
It could be an extra built in that you have in your space that really shows off your hobby and allows you a little corner of your space to call your own .
You can really customize your home to work for you and add extra value into your life .
Another bold design choice , we're going to see a lot of this year is monochromatic rooms , which means when the paint color matches the trim , which matches the built in color , the cabinetry and sometimes even the furniture .
So you get this overall color throughout the space that really makes your space look larger and it just engulfs you in this experience .
So if you want to go really bold in a space you can for that monochromatic look .
So playing with color that way and implementing it in a bold way in a specific space is going to be the thing to do this year .
So you might have a space in your home already .
That's halfway there .
Maybe you have a bold paint color , extend that into your trim , extend that into any built ins you have in your space , maybe even add one furniture piece or Decor piece .
That's the same color and extend that design to make it look a little bit more monochromatic .
I think it adds so much drama and so much impact into your space and it can pretty much just be done with paint .
And lastly , I'm happy to say that gallery walls are still a big trend for 2023 and you're going to actually see them in bigger and bolder ways .
So it's all about drama and impact and creating this lived in collected cozy feeling in your home and gallery walls can do that .
Instead of limiting your gallery wall in a small area , extend your gallery wall to fill the entire space .
You can create so much drama through a staircase with a gallery wall , you can wrap it around a corner , really create nooks in your spaces and you can span your gallery wall across tall large walls to create instant drama .
And it totally draws your eye up .
It creates so much interest and there's such a fun diy thing that you can do in your home to make a huge impact .
So if you have an existing gallery wall in your home , maybe think about expanding on it and making it even more dramatic , add larger artwork , mix up your frames , do something that's really going to set your gallery wall apart .
Remember to keep a pretty small space between your frames that will allow your gallery wall to look really full and intentional instead of having sporadic art workplace .
So make sure that the spaces and gaps between your frames don't exceed six inches .
If it goes any larger than that , it's going to look a little bit too spread apart and kind of look like each piece is kind of floating .
You want your gallery wall to come together .
So make sure you keep those gaps pretty small and fill out your space that way .
All right .
