Discover the latest interior design trends for 2023 and learn how fireplaces make the perfect focal point in the home. Looking to create a warm and inviting space? The fireplace is a must-have feature. Learn how to incorporate this timeless element into your own home, and how to make the most of this year's trends.
The last few years have seen the way we use our homes change dramatically. The pandemic saw us re-evaluating our home spaces, as our boundaries between work and home shifted. We needed a place that afforded us space for working from home, while retaining a balance simultaneously. Home offices received a face lift, dining rooms were repurposed for a new requirement, plus the need for bringing a sense of sanctuary to the rest of the house became even more desirable.
With all this came an influx of change to trends – but what is on the cards for 2023?
The use of natural materials in interior design has been a popular trend in the past, but in 2023, we anticipate an even greater focus on materials such as stone and wood. Our collection of stone mantels offers a stunning addition to any fireplace, particularly when paired with the rustic and authentic charm of a real wood burning fire. Natural materials help to evoke a sense of warmth, making them the perfect choice for cosy fireside ambience.
Adding to the neutral, warm and cosy feel, muted colours are making a resurgence, simulating tones that you might find in nature outside the expected green palette. Expect to see interiors valuing natural colours other than different shades of green, such as blues, plums and mustards.
These colours help to evoke feelings of serenity, calmness and balance. When paired with the relaxing ambience you get from a fireplace, whether wood burning, gas or electric, these colours will always offer you a warm welcome home. Shown above is the Riva2 40 wood burning fire from Stovax.
2023 is also expected to see homes splashed with sophisticated infusions of colour. Imagine fabrics, paint and wallpaper, injecting patterns and accents within our interiors. Each space should balance another, so you may want to take more time to consider your home as a whole, and the journey between the different rooms.
Scenic murals and wallpaper will continue to be popular. The prints and patterns trend allows for a playful and expressive approach to interior design, helping you make a bold statement in your home. This bold wallpaper example helps to frame the fireplace perfectly, allowing the Stovax County 8 log burner to stand out as a focal point.
Nature enthusiasts that prefer a traditional colour palette will celebrate the continued trend of green accents in home décor. The popularity of various shades of green is on the rise, including deeper tones that create a moody, forest-like ambience. These colours bring a touch of the outdoors inside, making the space more calming and natural. Plus, if you’re looking for a simple way to evoke a cohesive theme across your entire home, green accents are a versatile and stylish choice.
Paired with natural materials like an exposed log store, the Vogue 700 inset wood burning fire from Stovax is a fitting centrepiece.
