As a smaller boutique design firm with a focus on design, we are committed to offering our clients the latest trends in home decor while keeping longevity, timelessness, sustainability and the environment in mind. In this discussion, we’ll take a look at some of the top trends in 2023 that you can use to elevate your home decor game and create an aesthetically pleasing living space.
1. Natural and Sustainable Materials
In 2023, expect a shift towards more natural and sustainable materials in home furnishings. We're talking reclaimed wood, organic fabrics, and eco-friendly materials.
At ExceptionalHome, we are committed to sustainability, and our collection features a wide range of furniture, accessories, and art made using these materials, and utilizing transport and manufacturing capabilities committed to minimal impact on the environment. Our local, Southern California footprint makes shopping from us easy and good for the Earth. By shopping small, and shopping local, you can reduce the carbon impact of furnishing your home.
2. Ultra-modern, Curved Designs
2023 is all about embracing the beauty of curved edges, geometric shapes, and soft lines in furniture and accessories. From arched metal framing to seating with arched backs, curved designs are an excellent way to breathe new life into any space. Plus, they ooze modern and elegant vibes. Curves can soften a space, make smaller areas more inviting, and offer a depth and texture that gives the home a tailored look. Our beautiful Margo, pictured above, exudes style and grace in a long-wearing, performance velvet, that is sure to give you years of comfort and beauty.
3. Unconventional Colors
This year, we are excited to see a departure from traditional home decor color schemes. Expect to see more statement-making, earthy hues such as rusty oranges, mustard yellows, and deep browns coming to the forefront of home design. We love incorporating accents of these colors in our wall art, accessories, area rugs and furniture to bring a fresh brightness to any living space. Pictured is our Kimberly Crew Cut area rug.
4. Natural Light and Greenery
One trend that will continue to make waves in 2023 is the biophilic design theme. This design trend focuses on bringing the outside into your living space by using natural light and greenery to create an earthy, refreshing atmosphere. At ExceptionalHome, we believe in bringing the outdoors in with our collection of potted plants, recycled wood ottomans, and earth-toned rugs. Our Dusty Rose, Adrian Sofa blends in perfectly with the greenery.
5. White isn't Right
Fortunately, the one trend we can wave goodbye to is the stark white on white on white design that caught on like a flash pre-Covid and is making it's way into a fadeout. Unless you're designing a 1960's hospital room, we recommend avoiding the lazy designers' approach to white wash an entire room. You don't want the spaces you live in to feel like you spilled a giant bottle of WhiteOut. Stark white is harsh on the eyes, anything but calming, boring on the brain and impossible to maintain. It puts you and your guests into an immediate OCD seizure worried getting the tiniest bit of pocket lint on your bleached white textures and colors. Instead, try statement pieces in soft oversaturated pastels, antiqued colors on area rugs, jewel tone and wood finish case goods and rugs and pillows that tie things together.
