Our Favorite Trends For The New Year!
2023 Trends We Love!
Rich, Earthier Tones and Wood
As we begin 2023 we are looking at new design trends and there are some that we love. Among the trends we are seeing is the shift from lighter, brighter palettes to earthier, richer tones. Rich, velvety chocolate brown mixed with crisp blue and creamy whites are an example of the new color combinations, as well as colors like earthy terra cotta and green. The trend towards coziness and warmth is a welcomed trend that we think is really timeless. Browns and rich tones also have a positive effect on our well being because it is associated with the earth, soil and nature. They are also in harmony with any design style. Deep browns and moody, muddy tone Paint colors like Benjamin Moore's Kona and Fresh Brew and Sherwin Williams Turkish Coffee and Black Fox will be popular in home design in 2023. There will be an emphasis on wood - warm walnut and stained woods will be making a big statement in 2023. Rich deep woods mixed with medium tone woods will be seen in furniture, floors and accents. Kitchens will be shifting back to wood as well. Another timeless and rich combination that we love is....Rich textures. Everything from natural jute, silky velvets, to boucle' are making homes welcoming again. Everything soft, cozy and textured is in.
Vintage is Hot!
"There are two things that make a room timeless: a sense of history and a piece of the future."- Charlotte Moss
Vintage and Antique pieces are definitely on trend. The move towards sustainability and nostalgia is making a profound effect on our homes. People want the feeling of warmth and nostalgia that evokes a sense of history. An appreciation of the quality of pieces made many years ago is leading the trend by homeowners and designers. Our collection of Vintage Ship Lights create an authentic nautical feel with a sense of history. We have an extensive array of authentic old pieces from ships as well as unique pieces that look like they were made a century ago.
Traditional pieces are also back in style. People don't want to live in sterile and cold spaces anymore. They want a home that feels lived in and that transcends time. We are seeing a return to traditional elements in everything from furniture to wallpaper and interior moldings and trim. Crown moldings, picture moldings, archways, and wood beams are all coming back in style to give homes more character and detail. Wallpaper is back in too Everything from grass cloth to wall murals and floral prints are going to be big this year.
