To determine the best living room trends in 2023, we reached out to prominent designers for their expert insights.
The return of art deco
An Art Deco living room is a space that is designed with the Art Deco style in mind. Art Deco, which emerged in the 1920s and 1930s, is known for its use of geometric shapes, bold colors, and lavish embellishments. To create an Art Deco living room, there are 6 things to consider, First, bold color. Art Deco interiors are known for their use of strong, contrasting colors such as black and gold, silver and black, and other bright hues. Second, geometric shapes. Art Deco design features a lot of geometric shapes and patterns, so incorporate these into your living room in the form of geometric prints on wallpaper or fabric, or through the use of angular furniture shapes.
Third, luxurious materials. Art Deco is all about opulence, so choose furnishings and accessories that are made from luxurious materials such as velvet, leather, and glass. Next one is mirrored surfaces. Mirrored surfaces were popular in Art Deco design, and they can help to reflect light and create a feeling of spaciousness in your living room. Next is metal accents. Art Deco interiors often feature metal accents, such as brass, bronze or stainless steel. These can be used to add shine and glamour to your living room. And the last thing is lighting. To complete the look, choose lighting fixtures that are in keeping with the Art Deco style, such as Art Deco lamps or chandeliers with geometric shapes and metal accents.
A painted ceiling can add a sense of height, color, and interest to a living room and is a great way to create a focal point and draw the eye upward. When designing a living room with a painted ceiling, it is recommended to choose a bold and contrasting color to make a statement. If the ceiling is low, opt for a light hue to give the illusion of height, while a darker color can help to make a high ceiling feel cozier. It is important to coordinate the ceiling color with the rest of the room’s decor. To add some creativity, consider painting a pattern or design on the ceiling. Ensure that the lighting in the room complements the ceiling color and enhances the overall appearance of the space. Before making a final decision, it is recommended to test the color on a small portion of the ceiling to see how it looks with the lighting and furniture.
A living room with natural inspiration incorporates elements of the outdoors into its design. This style creates a warm, inviting, and peaceful atmosphere and is a great way to bring some of the beauty of nature into your home. To create this room, you can start by incorporate natural materials such as wood, stone, and bamboo to create a connection to the outdoors. Or consider adding greenery to your living room that can also help to purify the air. For an easy update, paint your wall with earthy colors or add an earthy color furniture to add depth and interest to your space. Or, if it’s too much, accessorize your space with nature-inspired elements.
For 2023, the trend towards curved furniture and architecture is becoming popular again. This includes curved upholstery such as sofas with curved backs and barrel chairs, as well as round pillows and accessories. Arched doorways and interior spaces with curved designs are also currently in style. This year we can expect to see a significant increase in the number of curved sofas, accent chairs, and benches in interior design.
Unexpected color pairing
In 2023, the trend will focus on innovative textiles, colors, and patterns. To add visual interest to the living room, complementary colored sofas and accent chairs will be popular. The use of larger pieces in bold colors, such as burnt orange, paired with muted pastel paint and textiles, is expected to generate excitement in interior design.
