2023 Home Style Predictions

Illustrating the “Gentle Gold” accent trend, Touchstone Home Products expands its product line with the new Sideline® Gold Recessed Smart Electric Fireplace, accented with a modern brushed brass gold frame and built-in Wi-Fi connectivity.
Leatrice Eiseman Executive Director, Pantone Color Institute says about Pantone’s 2023 Color of the Year:
“In this age of technology, we look to draw inspiration from nature and what is real. PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta descends from the red family, and is inspired by the red of cochineal, one of the most precious dyes belonging to the natural dye family as well as one of the strongest and brightest the world has known.
Rooted in the primordial, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta reconnects us to original matter. Invoking the forces of nature, PANTONE 18-1750 Viva Magenta galvanizes our spirit, helping us to build our inner strength.”

Absolute minimalism is giving way to more decorative and proven styles of the past.  

While hyper maximalism is far from back, more ornate details are on the rise.  Think brighter colors, dramatic accents, arcs and rounded shapes, larger scale light fixtures, warmer textures, geometric patterns and symmetry.  Modern interpretations of proven classic styles are on the rise.

Wellness is a sizzling topic and will remain so for years to come. 

Surface and color selections should consider flexible use spaces that cater to everyday activities as well as entertainment and exercise.   Wellness means cleanliness and organization, giving rise to mudrooms and laundry rooms that are no longer purely utilitarian; they too should get the designer treatment.  Organic and handmade are the buzzwords for accents.

Home work/hobby space is a place for personal expression

Home offices, craft rooms and music rooms should be happy spaces reflecting the individual’s personal style exuding with elements that speak to their specific motivations.  Consider both display areas and storage solutions for clutter reduction. These rooms are ideally situated so they can be closed off from the main spaces.

Think indoor-outdoor blend for color choices. 

Of course, greens of all shades would first come to mind.  “Gentle gold” is a more organic version among metallics and a complement to on-trend warmer neutral palettes; think of it a desert landscape at sunset!  Turquoise blue is making a splash (pun intended) among the colors inspired by water. How about an accent of lavender? 

Facing inflation and continued supply chain issues, material prices are predicted to continue to swing wildly.  Labor shortages will still abound.  This underscores the significance of careful budget and timeline oversight. Early decision-making, ordering and scheduling, and fewer changes along the way cannot be emphasized enough!
