1. Multi-Functional Spaces:

With more people working from home and the increase in housing prices, multi-functional spaces are becoming a must. From home offices that double as guest rooms to living rooms that convert into home theaters, an emphasis getting creative with maximizing your space is taking a strong hold on the industry!

Convert recessed walls into a built-in desk or storage seating area, like in my 70's Barbie Dream House Makeover:

2. Sculptural Statement Pieces

Maximalism is having a moment, and with that, adding more daring statement pieces into your home is going to be huge! Sculptural lighting fixtures like chandeliers and and wall sconces are becoming increasingly popular, as well as abstract shaped rugs, unique seating, and abstract statues! They add a focal point to any room and make for a great conversation starter.

3. Traditional Meets Modern

With the rise of the "Millennial Grandma" aesthetic over the last couple of years, design is leaning towards cozy textures and warm traditional vintage pieces mixed with more modern and current trends. The look is absolutely stunning, and creates a much cozier and lived in environment compared to the stale MCM or minimalist trend that we saw in times past.

4. Warm, Dark, Bold Color Palettes

With the rise of maximalism and incorporating warmth into the design aesthetic, more intense color palettes, featuring darker and saturated tones are going to be on the rise! Think warm red or berry tones, moody sages, copper, and pops of more intense colors, like cobalt!

5. Pattern on Pattern on Pattern

2023 is all about being expressive and daring in your design choices. This means that busy is back, and basic is out. Don't be afraid to mix a whole collage of patterns together, busier might just be better this time! This aesthetic isn't for everyone, but it is definitely going to continue to make an impact as we go forward this year, especially with the rise of designers like Dani Dazey who have made this a staple of their design aesthetic.
