All You Need to Know About 2023 Trends in Interior Design

Updated: Dec 30, 2022

Everything feels much more upbeat now, including the 2023 design trends! We have a new year approaching which brings new hope, new resolutions and new beginnings.

While in 2022, we all hoped to get life back to what it was before, the design trends were all about calming colour schemes, plush, all-encompassing furnishings, and an overall atmosphere of swaddle and tranquillity.

Now that we're headed back to real life and 2023 is about to start, we are moving away from the romantic styles and getting ready to usher in bold and evocative individualism.

We will see a general focus on how a home's interior makes people feel and explore how design might improve their happiness, well-being, and level of productivity in their surroundings.

All of this sounds like music to our ears! We at COR London studio are all about creating and enticing feelings through our designs above anything else. We have been preaching for a long time about believing that the interiors we are inserted into are essential to our happiness and well-being.

With that in mind, we have gathered the key 2023 Interior Design Trends for you:

Curved, wavy furniture

It's a new wave coming. Curvy furniture was part of 2022 design trends already, and the good news is that they are here to stay; what's more: they are bigger than ever. The 70s has been present on the fashion runways, and it is coming back to the interior design world. Sofas, tables, chairs, staircases, and even small accessories banish the old, straight edges, and the new curves and waves have resided.

Large, bold colour furniture

What could be a better representation of passion for life than a colour scheme? Even if they only appear as highlights, brighter colours are becoming more popular in interior design as opposed to a white and neutral decor. Interiors have a new vibe as colour palettes are more energetic and fun. Patti Carpenter states in Architectural Digest article: "We see the warm side of the palette bursting forth in a range of calming corals, balmy apricots, gracious russets, and even zesty oranges."

Purple hues – Viva magenta

Pantone has revealed: Viva Magenta 18-1750 is the Pantone Colour of the Year. Viva Magenta is best described as a brave and courageous colour, which perfectly captures the COR London spirit. Viva Magenta is one of the brightest and strongest natural colours known to the world.

Lighting is art

The look of a deep, moody room brings something that gives the feeling of cosiness, elegance and sophistication. More and more black paint and decor are being used to create melancholic environments and Gothic is reportedly making a new revival along with more dramatic themes. So now, people will start understanding the value of ambient lighting and how it affects a space’s feel as they plan and construct their ideal houses.

Sustainable design

Customers are paying closer attention to picking environmentally friendly solutions, which is understandable given that the discussion and significance of sustainable design will start to take the lead. People are more frequently asking questions like "where is this made" and "how is this created”.

100% natural materials.


Wickerwork, the craft of weaving with natural materials like rattan, reeds, and some types of bark, is slowly but firmly making a comeback in the design world and are essential for a peaceful organic environment.

We have good news for families with small children or for people who often spill red wine - fabrics are becoming more stain-resistant. There are now so many options, like natural linen, velvet, and textured textiles made of high-performance, outdoor-rated components and treatments that resist stains.

Textured wall

The trend for textured walls and ceilings is here to stay. Whether plaster coated, limewash treated, or painted in a particular style, it is so much fun adding texture to the walls and ceilings. We at COR London love exploring a variety of textures as it not only adds style and authenticity but also brings depth to the spaces, cosiness and a feeling of nature, bringing a bit of the outdoors.

Organic, natural, greenery

Over the previous years, we have clung to as many interior greenery components as possible, including statement plants and botanical designs. This passion is still strong now, but it is changing into something else.

Orange skins and rose stems are used to create fabrics, mycelium, clay, fungus, grape skin, dried peel, pineapple skin, brick, dirt, shells, kelp, blood, pig skin, and petals are also contributing to the new materials.

Slow furniture

A timeless look is on trend now, and antique, vintage furniture offers a unique window into earlier eras. There is no more space for mass-produced furniture. Then what? Designer furniture can be pricey, but luckily, we have other options to keep up with the trends and guarantee quality. Upcycling is becoming more popular whilst there are many antique shops you can get beautiful pieces at affordable prices.

Cosy Layouts

Although open-plan layouts may have been popular in recent years, experts believe that separate and private rooms will return in 2023. They assert that having a secluded space to congregate does not need to mean creating a formal dining room with a 12-seat table. We spent years knocking down all the walls to create big open spaces, but today we crave cosy places that encourage a deeper connection. Although open-concept living is still popular, we are finding inventive methods to designate more private nooks and crannies within open areas.

Private and smaller family rooms are a big trend.
