Contemporary style is a great trend in interior design 2023. It is one of the most popular styles since the 20th century, and, over the years, it has evolved according to the new needs of interior design.

In addition, the use of classic pieces, such as sculptures and colonial-style furniture, come as a strong trend in contemporary style, as they serve to give a different touch to the environment.
In interior design, the use of an accent piece will be a very strong contemporary style trend in 2023. We call a statement piece to the decoration that can give a 360 ° transformation to a room. It will be the touch that transmits your personality in an environment with more neutral colors.
Ethnic style is a big trend for 2023! Inspired by world travelers. Usually, it is based on eastern cultures and warm places, such as India, Peru, Mexico, and countries in the Middle East and Africa. It also has an aesthetic that unites the exterior with the interior. It will be very present, then, since we cannot go on a trip, we will have to bring the world to us.
In ethnic interior design, a palette of earth tones (which is very much in trend) will dominate the spaces. For example, the color ocher, terracotta, olive green and beige. In addition, natural materials such as clay and wood will complement the environment very well and give a more welcoming vibe. Also, you can combine patterns, textures and touches of bright colors.

In addition, they will have a colonial style and an artistic touch while remaining functional and comfortable. Functional furniture will be a strong trend in interior design by 2023.
The industrial design style is very characteristic of New York lofts. It comes from factories that eventually became apartments or offices. The original structure of wide spaces and high ceilings is used. Elements such as columns, pipes, electrical installations and textured walls will be part of the decoration of the space.
The main colors in industrial interior design will be mostly cold tones, with a predominance of black and white. In this case, urban materials will be the stars of the room. As raw material we will have a mixture of cold and warm metals, weathered wood and concrete.
The decoration is usually very simple and minimalist. However, to make the environment more welcoming you can include plants, photographs, paintings and touches of strong colors such as red, blue or green. Also, as lighting trends for this style, we have large windows and, at night, metal floor or pendant lamps.
Industrial-style furniture is usually discreet, uncomplicated and with a rough finish. Some very common elements in this style of interior decoration are unpainted brick walls, wooden cabinets, and metal shelves and tables.
Architecture trends 2023 tell us that industrial interior design is making a comeback this year, especially for office and workspace design.
The Mediterranean style will be the maximum for the interior design of beach houses. We also call this naval style. Natural materials such as stone and wood will be a key part of interior design. Usually, they are spacious places with a lot of warm light. The style is inspired by the houses of the islands of Greece and Italy.

The minimalist philosophy and style arrived in the early 90s and, to this day, represents a trend in interior design. In the minimalist decoration, simplicity will be key. The simplicity will make the space more elegant and gives you a sense of tranquility.
In the minimalist interior design, black and white is used, and touches of gray, especially for the backgrounds. They will be wide spaces without much detail so as not to obscure the view. Also, a lot of use is made of transparency so that the light enters the space better.
The raw materials in the minimalist design will be metal, stones, marble and glass. Much furniture is used such as leather armchairs, metal lamps and glass tables. You will also see non-patterned and neutral-colored fabrics.
The use of high-tech devices will be a component that brings us the most modern version of minimalist decoration style. This will also give us the functionality factor we are looking for today.

Again, indoor plants will be a decorative element in trend to bring warmth and comfort to an environment in cool tones.
Remember… Less is more!
A sustainable modern style turns to innovation in interior design. Today, with climate change, it is very important to include sustainability both in our homes and in the workplace.
In sustainable modern interior design, we will see the importance of decoration elements made with recycled materials and obtained with social responsibility that can replace plastic and wood. Likewise, we will have natural, sustainable lighting (low energy consumption) or we will use the use of solar panels.
The trends in interior design 2023 will be organic. In this case, the mix between the modernity of technology and the naturalness of the gardens and indoor plants will make a beautiful and functional contrast to have the best of both worlds.
For example, furniture with built-in chargers will be part of the functionality and modernity of this style. Many of them work with solar energy that will appeal to the sustainable side.
This is one of the trends in interior design 2023 that comes with more force. They are comfortable and welcoming environments that appeal to simplicity and nature. The Nordic decoration style is inspired by Scandinavian architecture and interior design.
The cold climate of the Nordic countries created the need to design spaces that take advantage of natural light. The color palette of Scandinavian interior design is made up of light and gray tones, as well as browns more towards the warm color range and, above all, white.
The furniture will be characterized by being low, simple and with marked straight lines. Also, we will see the use of wood in light tones, such as gaiters, leather and light fabrics without printing.
As for decoration, in this style of interior design we must try not to fill the space with unused pieces. Another characteristic factor of Nordic decoration style is the touches of color, such as in blue, green or yellow, through modern paintings or textile pieces. In addition, we can use plants to bring a more natural look to the space.
Organic aesthetics will be a big trend in interior design by 2023. The rustic style emphasizes the beauty of nature ; therefore, it will be a style that everyone will want to have in their homes.
The main raw materials of the rustic style will be natural materials such as stone and wood in different pale and light tones. Sometimes the woods are painted to give a weathered appearance without taking away the interesting texture that nature gives you. In 2023 imperfect finishes will reign.
Natural colors, like earth tones, are also a strong trend in interior decorating for 2023. Using a calming color palette will be key to creating your own relaxing sanctuary at home.
On the other hand, in terms of the rustic decoration style, textiles, such as linen, wool, jute and cotton, in their most natural version, will provide texture and make the environment more welcoming and warm. We see these finishes a lot in traditional handicrafts and looms.
Other decorative elements such as olive trees and dried flowers will be beautiful touches that go very well with the aesthetics of the rustic style.
The vintage style has a long history in the world of interior design. Although it is quite old, it continues to be a very strong trend for 2023. Antique collectors and people who love classic pieces especially will enjoy this type of decoration.
The recovered and remastered antique pieces will also be a great interior design trend by 2023. Furniture very characteristic of the vintage style will be showcases and sideboards finished with interesting and unique details, referring to its time of antiquity.
In vintage-style decoration, lighter tones and floral prints are usually used that give a delicate and feminine touch to the environment. Remember that it is a style that goes hand in hand with the romantic.
Elements such as antique mirrors and rusty tones will be decorative trends of 2023. For example, copper taps will be a way to bring shine and personality to your bathrooms and kitchens.
