What a year! We’ve come out of hibernation full of new ideas to update and refresh our homes. Colors, textures, comfort, and appreciation for outdoor beauty are playing a big role in 2023 interior design trends. These are a few that we’ve seen. See if one or two speak to you.

1. Window treatments — Make them uniquely yours

Your naked windows, or windows scantily dressed in sheers, are in for an upgrade this year. Cornices and valences are back. So are Roman shades. Scalloped edges, trims, fringe, rich fabric textures, and quality hardware are making a comeback in formal areas like living rooms, dining rooms, and primary bedrooms. Think of them as works of art that frame your window views. A beautiful window treatment brings warmth and elegance to an otherwise plain room and makes everything look more upscale.

2. Wood accents and trim

The days of sterile décor, with touches of metal and chrome, are in the rear-view mirror. The warmth of wood never goes out of style. It’s something that just says “home” in a comforting way. Even Ikea is combining rustic metal and wood in their media cabinets. From treasured antiques to sleek modern pieces, wood grain adds an authentic appeal.

Look for wood details in kitchen countertops and window moldings and trim. The combination of wood grain accents with the ease of vinyl replacement windows is a win/win in style and easy maintenance.

3. Kitchen windows go big

There’s some serious talk that enclosed kitchens are a returning trend. Where open-concept kitchens were tied to living rooms and dining rooms, today’s kitchen is leaning toward opening to outdoor living spaces instead.

We’re seeing lots of big, bold windows and patio doors, giving even the smallest kitchens a light and airy aura. Sliding window styles work great for passing dishes to an outdoor porch or patio. And casement windows open easily to allow fresh breezes inside or perhaps to whisk away the scent of burned cuisine before the smoke alarm catches it.

4. Paint your ceiling for an uplifting experience

2023 color trends and the 2023 colors of the year vary from warm earth tones to sophisticated Viva Magenta, and even Barbiesque bubblegum pinks. But the place to look for color this year is over your head. Why stop at the walls when you can accent with ceiling colors that add warmth and charm to a room? You might be surprised how dark and bold you can go.

5. Wild for wallpaper

Wallpaper is back! And better than ever, some would say, especially with the trend of peel’ n stick removable paper. The temporary nature of modern wallpaper makes experimenting with trending color schemes easy and more fun than ever. Make small spaces like half baths, accent walls, and bookshelves pop with patterns and colors that bring you joy.

6. Listening rooms — A cozy place to hear only good things

After a few years of couped-up craziness, it’s nice to have a room or a corner where you can close your eyes and simply listen. Have a vinyl collection and a turntable? Then, all you need to decorate is some comfortable seating and a few framed album covers. Dimmable lighting sets the mood. You can help soundproof with rugs, throw blankets, and if you live in a noisy neighborhood, consider investing in sound-reducing impact windows. Not only do they protect against storms, but they also protect your ears from traffic and industrial noise.
