What’s ahead for 2023

Founder of Global Stone, Sean McArthur, doubles as our chief trend spotter. During his visit to the Cersaie Fair in Bologna Italy, Sean was able to get a sneak peak of the international décor trends.

Moody Colours: Dark and deep blues, purples, reds and greys will form the new backdrops of décor for 2023. These dark and rich colours are of course a drastic change from the light and Scandinavian tones of white and light wood. Moody colours are often associated with royalty, and why shouldn’t you have a bit of aristocracy in your home?

Washed colours: In 2023 we will see mosaics become a lot more 3-dimensional. Colours will have depth, variations and contrasts all within a single mosaic piece. We are starting to see on Pinterest that Interior designers are including these beautiful washed colours on focal walls throughout homes to elevate the look and feel to these spaces.

Curved surfaces: Ever heard the expression “for every reaction, there is an equal but opposite reaction”? The old adage does apply in the décor space regularly and can be seen now with the transition from sharp, straight lines, to softer, more feminine curves and shapes. Shapes such as the fan and lantern will become popular and the hexagon remains a popular choice – with a few adjustments to the type of hexagon though.
