With insight from AMC Design
From mood-boosting colour palettes and curvaceous furniture, to spa style bathrooms and tactile textures, 2023 will be the year to truly show personality through interiors. Ann Marie Cousins, Founder of AMC Design, provides her expert insight into what to look out for in the new year.
“We’ve already started to see bold and colourful interiors this year, but they will be even more prevalent in 2023.
There has been more of a focus on creating surroundings that heavily influence our moods and wellness, so introducing a vibrant colour palette is a great place to start.
Explore your more playful and nostalgic side and experiment with patterns and textures to create the ultimate uplifting atmosphere in your home.”
“A bathroom isn’t only a necessity in a home, but a wellness space to wake up in the morning or relax and rejuvenate in the evenings. In 2023, we will see an increase in bathrooms as wellness spaces in themselves, where homeowners can enjoy some true R&R. The new year will welcome the luxuries and amenities of hotel suites and spas into the comfort of our own homes, ranging from double-vanity units and luxurious wallpapers, to striking light fittings and swoon-worthy tiles.”
SWERVES AND CURVES
“Stay ahead of the curve and move away from slim profiles by incorporating rounded and shapely furniture and décor into your home, as we expect a continued resurgence in 70s and 80s design. From tiles and sofas, to mirrors and rugs, gone are the days of straight lines and instead, replace them with aesthetically pleasing soft, curvaceous pieces. I’ve especially seen a continued request for scallop designs which can be introduced in a number of different ways, instantly adding intrigue and charm.”
“Texture is one of the easiest and most dynamic ways to add character to your home, regardless of the interior style. We’ll see a shift from minimalistic and pared-back style, and a move towards maximalist interiors. One of the best ways to do this is by layering natural materials such as wood and stone, with tactile fabrics like velvet, suede and leather in a variety of tones and patterns. Don’t be afraid to be bold, and try experimenting throughout the seasons to see what works best.”
