At this time of year, it’s usual to look ahead and subsequently think of aesthetical or practical changes that you’d like to make to your home in this new year.
If this is the case for you, consider which new trends are emerging to ensure that you don’t miss out on any new styles and that any changes you make include the latest innovations in design and technology, keeping you up-to-date and in style for as long as possible. Below are some of the trends we predict will take off in 2023 and our top tips for embracing them when giving your home a breath of new life.
Natural stone could be the perfect choice if you’re looking for a way to update your kitchen using sustainable materials, with ever more dramatic designs and varieties favoured over plainer, traditional variations. We particularly enjoy the decadent drama, which can be achieved by combining contrasting palettes, strong veining and waterfall countertops.
For a showstopping entertainment space at our Ennismore Gardens apartment, we developed a high-contrast reverse monochromatic scheme within the minimalist open-plan kitchen and dining room. A monolithic white and black island with cascading waterfall edges sits before the contrasting black and white Nero Marquina worktop and splashback. Together, this dramatic feature sits perfectly against the rich walnut cladding backdrop to create a sophisticated space perfect for entertaining.
This trend can be applied to multiple surfaces, tying in each element of the room and extending the beauty of a stone or stone effect surface in an interior. An island creates a strong focal point as it lends itself well to wrapping and stands independently within the space by design.
This year, designers will be swapping harsh angles for rounded structures, both in terms of architectural and furniture design. Curves naturally soften a space, making it feel cosier and more inviting. In furniture design, curves and soft edges create flow, are gentle on the eye and not only look but feel comfortable and reassuring.
Consider changing the shape of a doorway or thresholds to be rounded in place of angular, rectangle entrances, creating a focal point and giving a grander, elegant look to your communal spaces and living areas.
Moving this particular trend into the kitchen, we also expect to see curves feature in cabinetry design, seating and kitchen islands. The beauty of curves is that they create natural social nooks which are easy to move past and gather around.
Simple yet effective, heritage tiles will add depth and interest to any room whilst also helping to satisfy your post-lockdown wanderlust. This is thanks to their similarity to the types of ceramic designs you will often see whilst holidaying abroad, particularly when colours such as cerulean blue or earthy terracotta feature. However, this trend can work just as well using more neutral or subtle tones such as ivory, soft salmons or greys.
This particular trend sees a return to geometric patterns in the home, which repeat to create a bold, eclectic overall effect without the hassle of making more dramatic architectural changes to your space.

Luxury, who doesn’t want a little more?
