Drawing from the global moments that have impacted how we view design and the home – from lockdown all the way to Barbie dreamhouse mania – this stylist has read the public’s temperature and captured the interior moments she sees dominating over the next few months and drilled them down into five key trends to keep on your radar. The top trends include:

Bye Bye Open Plan
2023 is seeing the reinstating of physical barriers in our personal spaces. Australians all love an open concept home, but coming out of lockdown, there’s a shift towards a more European mentality where clever planning creates multi-functioning rooms that are both inviting and intimate.
“Open plan loves modern materials that don’t often offer any noise sensitivity,” says the stylist.
“With this trend, look to add soft furnishings and a plush curtain wherever you can to decrease noise echo.”
The stylist also suggests evaluating what needs to be seen and what can be put away and then styling your room accordingly.

Colour Bombing
For too long, we have opted for layered neutrals only adding subtle hints of colour as a highlight afterthought. Now, however, we’re seeing colour becoming extremely prominent in our interiors.
If you’re nervous to try out this trend, the stylist says to choose a colour that really resonates with you so that way you will always love it in your home.
“Doubling down on a colour superpower always comes across as passionate, inspiring, and very unexpected,” says the stylist.
“Try to think: are there more shades or hues of the one colour you love that you can use more of? Are there other textures where this colour can be achieved in throws, cushions, and art?”

Refined Comfort
Now more globally aware of our surroundings than ever, we all have a new bar for home comfort. Our interiors were once the simple domain of a few after-work hours relaxing, but after a couple of years of chaos, what is important to us as
WFH’ers and domestic-obsessed humans is balance.
“Living areas should wrap around us, bedrooms should envelope us, and workspaces should be practical and delightful,” says the stylist.
“It’s important to do a comfort audit, to every room and assess what is comfortable to you.”
The stylist’s favourites to achieve comfortability in the home include items like the Silvina Upholstered Boucle Bed and versatile seating options.

Decorate Responsibly
The mantra for all purchasing now relies on our love and care for the things we invest in.
Choosing wisely means thoughtful consideration, not necessarily endless budgets.
The stylist has three crucial steps to adopting this trend:
Start with investing in the big basics, like furniture items that will take up the most space and need to be well thought out.
Ask yourself if you really need this, and will this last you a long time?
Invest in fabrics, lighting, and art – these are the things people notice and will last the test of time.

DIFY – Do it For Yourself
In a time when you can have everything, what is it that you really want?
Want a sauna in your en-suite? Go get it.
Want a wine fridge in your pantry? Splurge for it.
The stylist suggests finding a corner of a busy room that you can allocate just for you and letting your wildest dreams run wild.
“Overall, no decorator can help you with this.
This is up to you to carve out your own love bubble as best you can with what you have. Let down your decorative guard and let it all go.
Satisfying fanciful whimsy and delight only yourself.
