Goodbye 2022… 2023 has arrived – and with it comes a whole load of dreamy trends to reinvent your interiors.

With January just around the corner, you may be piecing together your New Year’s Eve plans or thinking about your resolutions for the year ahead, but we have matters even more pressing than that! The trend forecast is here and let us tell you, it looks sensational. From the vibrantly happy to simplistically serene, there’s a wide range of looks and moods incoming. We’re talking pastels with a chance of luxury, and gentle holiday vibes coming in from overseas. But most of all, these trends are invested in you expressing your most authentic self through your home décor.

We had a chat with Anna – our lovely brand manager at furn.com – and she’s given us some insight into what trends will be cropping up in 2023. With warm neutrals, architectural shapes, and artisan décor, we guarantee you’re about to create a home good enough for your Instagram grid.

“Grey has had its time as neutral of the moment, and now a warm, clay tone is coming to the fore.” – Anna, Brand Manager at furn.com.

Gone are the days of grey being the base colour. The world is moving towards a warmer, more organic colour palette as we’ve come to realise that our rooms (and our minds!) need mellowing. This alluring trend will get you feeling as though the morning sunlight is flooding through your window all day every day. With earthy neutrals, coppery tones, and marble details – this 2023 design trend is all about getting back to nature, calming things down, and creating a space that’s soft in texture and subtle in luxe. Get the look in your own home with our carefully chosen home furnishings.

Injecting the organic yet luxurious look into the home has never been more sought after and the bathroom is no exception. Welcome in Mother Nature and feel the softness beneath your toes with our diamond tufted bath mat in sage green. Manufactured from 100% cotton and complete with a tufted texture, it’s all things sumptuous. With its soothing sage green hue, you’ll be transported to those woodland, hillside, and city park walks every time you step out the shower.

The perfect option for bed, sofa or chair, this cushion is made from an ultra-soft cotton velvet to add a pop of texture to your interiors.

embracing our individuality.

“Art has become super affordable in the last couple of years – and with poster and print businesses popping up, you can download it straight from the artists themselves. It’s become easier and easier to create a look that’s unique to you rather than getting something straight off the high street.” – Anna.

After a hard couple of years staring at art on the internet, galleries have piqued our interest once more. The curated house trend is all about bringing eclectic pieces into your home – this could be anything from hanging an art print or patterned wallpaper to bringing in a ceramic vase or printed cushion. The only rule is that you must love it! It aims to create interiors that feel as though they’ve been assembled over time. Think home furnishings, accessories, and ornaments that showcase your authentic and unique style. This trend creates a house that feels like a canvas – full of sculptural shapes and painterly marks that create loads of glorious texture. At furn., we’ve lovingly designed a plethora of stunning prints to add artistic finesse everywhere!

The perfect mix of texture and design, get the gallery look with the frida illustrated cushion in pink. Illustrated by English artist Kate Merritt, the cushion is vibrant with the face of fellow artist, Frida Kahlo. Complete with her famous floral headdress and red lipstick upon a pink background, you couldn’t get any artier if you tried! This cushion is printed upon lustrous velvet and is complete with a woven piped trim to add heaps of delicious texture to any seat.

Feast your eyes upon our tibetan tiger wallpaper in blue. With its tribal style print of a prowling tiger being repeated all over this stunning wallpaper, it’s bold and beautiful. Sure to add personality, flair and dimension to your interiors, the striking orange tiger offers a fabulous contrast colour to the rich blue backdrop it sits upon. No matter whether you’re creating a feature wall, or covering all four walls, your home will feel like a piece of art in its own right.  

Indulge in eye-catching pattern and snuggle up under our amanita mushroom duvet cover set in cobalt. With a hand-illustrated design portraying a myriad of fungi, it’s set against a vibrant cobalt blue background for a pop of colour. Drift off to sleep beneath super-soft polycotton printed with magical red toadstools and yellow mushrooms. Complete with a gentle grey and white abstract reverse, you’ll get two stunning looks in one for when you fancy changing up the look in your bedroom.

“This is the idea of romanticising holidays and bringing them into the home – we’re not talking tropical anymore, but more subtle colours and architectural details. After the pandemic, escaping abroad has become a thing we’ve been dreaming of for too long.” – Anna.

Live out those precious holiday memories in the comfort of your own home. This trend appeals to our nostalgic side, encountering dusky hues, flower filled scenes, and architectural shapes that’ll take you back to long, hot days spent basking on white beaches. It’s a romantic take on the tropical look but instead focuses on dreamy textures, prints, and details that has us falling head over heels with exotic décor once more. Tropical décor has well and truly evolved, and a serene feeling is taking over with peach, clay, and violet tones taking the lead in 2023.
