With spring blooming and summer not too far beyond the horizon, it’s the perfect time of year to create a fresh and homely living space that makes you feel energised, warm, and happy. The interior trends in which have emerged so far in 2023 will be sure to spruce up your home with motivating hues, natural touches, and dopamine-inducing décor.
1. Dried Flower Bouquets
Number 1 on our list is Dried Flower Bouquets which are a wonderful addition to any living space. They add a touch of natural beauty and can be used to create a warm and inviting atmosphere in any room. Unlike fresh flowers, dried flower bouquets can last for years if they are properly cared for, making them a low-maintenance and long-lasting option for those who want to add a hint of nature to their home. Despite being dried, they still give a beautiful aroma, especially if eucalyptus is involved.
One of the great things about dried flower bouquets is that they come in a wide variety of colours and textures, making it easy to find one that complements your existing decor. They can be displayed in a vase or hung on a wall to create a unique focal point, adding a subtle rustic element to any interior design scheme. Take a look at Olivia Rose Emporium, who created our beautifully bespoke bouquets which feature in our shop in St Andrews.
2. Colours of the Season
This season is adorned with a new set of colours...and we love them! Taking inspiration from Neptunes signature paints, these palettes show you which paints complement each other best, so you can create a layered, harmonious scheme this spring whilst staying on trend!
Paprika, a rich shade of red-orange, is perfect for creating a cosy and inviting atmosphere. It pairs well with warm neutrals like beige or brown and can be used as a great bold accent to add some more character to your living space.
Burnt Sienna Orange, a bright and cheerful colour, can bring a burst of energy into any room. It works well as an accent colour in a neutral space or can be used in larger doses to create a bold statement.
Lime, a zesty shade of green, is perfect for adding a pop of colour to a neutral space. It pairs well with other bright colours like pink or yellow and can be used in textiles, accessories, or even as an accent wall colour.
Invite some of these vibrate colours into your home to capture that perfect cosy and motivating aura for the warmer months ahead.
3. Dopamine Décor
An interior design trend that is gaining popularity is dopamine décor. This design trend is all about creating a space that makes you feel positive, energised, and inspired. It's about incorporating elements that trigger the release of dopamine in your brain, which is a chemical associated with pleasure and reward.
Reds and oranges are perfect for releasing this happiness, so why not add some seasonal bold and warm colours to your living space. You can incorporate these colours into your decor through accented walls, furniture, or accessories such as throw pillows and rugs. We love the TANGIER RED STRIPE FRILLY CUSHION by Alice Palmer & Co.
Surround yourself with items that bring you joy and make you feel happy. Whether it's artwork, photographs, or sentimental objects, incorporating these items into your décor can boost dopamine levels and create a space that feels uniquely yours. If you enjoy a bit of bubbly, why not take a look at our Champagne & Fizz collection?
Surrounding yourself with natural light and elements of nature too can boost mood and productivity. Make the most of your space by utilising reflective surfaces and mirrors to watch your living space glow all evening in the golden hours. On-trend dried flower bouquets or other floral touches can also bring a natural feel to your home.
Overall, interior design trends for 2023 include a range of warm and vibrant colours, low-maintenance floral touches, and dopamine decor that is focused on creating a space that makes you feel good. By incorporating these elements into your home, you can create a space that feels fresh, modern, and personal.
