The environment is not only a crucial issue; it is also central to our decors. There is an increasing preference for materials with a low carbon footprint, like recycled timber or hemp insulation batts.
The use of second-hand furniture and accessories will be prioritized when designing a room. There is likewise a growing trend for buying local and using of environmentally friendly paint, which contains far fewer chemical than standard products.
Plant-based materials are popular for furniture and accessories. Think a coiled rope rug, wicker baskets, a hemp frame, or linen curtains. This is, again, for environmental reasons. Additionally, these fibres complement the natural decor styles that are so popular right now.
Zen and nature-inspired decors will be everywhere in 2023. While white has been the colour of choice for this type of look, it has now given way to a warmer, lower contrast tones.
Which is why walls and ceilings will be covered in beige instead, or even taupe. If you do opt for white, select a hue that has beige undertones. This detail will still have a big visual impact, without loosing white’s fresh minimalist feel.
Punches of Raw Materials
Terracotta, porcelain, ceramic, and concrete are everywhere. But take care: they should be used sparingly! These materials will most frequently be integrated into our decors in the form of accessories or accent furniture, such as a floor lamp, a decorative bowl, a countertop, or a living room table.
