1. Joyful design
Expressive decor featuring colorful and abstract paintings are a key part of joyful design, and this invites lots of opportunities to get hands-on and personalize furniture pieces with playful licks of paint. Use uplifting shades of warm oranges, pinks and yellows.
Consider more than just the visual things, too: Joyful design should speak to all the senses. Incorporate scents like calming lavender or energizing lemon, as well as sounds or music that set a certain mood.

2. Nature's contours
Think mesmerizing topographic maps, showing the elevations of the land. Close-up views of tree rings, leaf fractals, and cracked marble. Or dry textures inspired by desert sands and rocks.
Some of the main ways nature’s contours are finding their place in 2023 interiors is through mineral-inspired marbleised design, curvy dinnerware, and stone texture accessories.

3. Digital realism
Draw inspiration from the digital worlds of gaming, streaming, video content, and metaverse aesthetics. Contrast LED light strips and soft neon mood-lighting with dark rooms to create a surreal and immersive space.
Multiple smart bulbs allow for the mixing of cool and warm colors, turning a room into a tech haven that feels out of this world.

4. Kitschy retro
This 2023 trend is a mix of vintage and retro that results in a nostalgic yet modern aesthetic. It focuses particularly on joyful wiggles and up-to-date color palettes.
Take inspiration from chintz design, 70s decor, colorful velvet, bold patterns, ric rac sewing, eclectic furniture, colorful gingham, and lots of playful wavy lines. Have fun and stay sustainable by repurposing old furniture and buying second-hand, too.

5. Warm minimalism
Traditional minimalism can feel cold or sterile at times, but this emergence of warm minimalism is something for people who want to feel cozy without the clutter.
