Our homes are a direct representation of who we are, a way to showcase our personalities and finally tell our unique stories. This year is all about embracing your individuality and using it as the driving force behind your design choices.
The days of cookie cutter interiors with mass-produced furniture pieces are done. Instead, we want to encourage you to trust your intuition and take the plunge… by embracing different colors, eclectic patterns, textured and mixed finishes that evoke a sense of self. The only rule is there are no rules! It's time to awaken our imagination and revel in the beauty of self-expression.
The beauty of concrete lies in its core. What was once a solely functional and industrial material is now celebrated for its fluidity to be used anywhere and create anything you want. From textured walls, to organic shaped tabletops, concrete can be the balancing act that your interior needs.
A subtle mix of rich natural colors, vivid browns, monochromatic elements, and heavily-veined marble, can be the perfect design combination here. Think Mykonos meets Tulum, Santorini meets Bali, Cappadocia meets Ko Tao. The result is a unique and personal space, where nature is represented in its most organic form.

The Evolved Kitchen
We are finally bidding farewell to the all-white kitchen and introducing smokey colors, dark woods, organic shapes/lines and shimmering brass finishes. Say goodbye to cluttered cabinetry and hello to open shelving, boasting your carefully selected plates and accessories. This trend creates a visually stunning display and brings a touch of elegance to the heart of the home. Open shelves become a curated gallery of beautiful kitchenware, artfully arranged and easily accessible. The outcome is a kitchen that embodies both practicality and aesthetic, showcasing the owner's striking personal flair.

Edge of Energy
Maximalism is leading the way in 2023, creating spaces that are bold and unapologetic in their use of color and texture. Evoking a sense of energy and playfulness, vivid magentas, powerful blushes, and mauves are taking center stage. The beauty of maximalism lies in its versatility and the limitless creative possibilities it presents. Despite its ornate and bold appearance, it can be incorporated into any space without feeling overpowering. A funky piece of furniture or a statement piece can be the star of the show, while neutral colors and textures provide a balancing backdrop.

Vintage Meets Modern
The allure of vintage meets modern in interior design is something that speaks to our hearts in 2023 and a trend that’s here to stay. As hunting for vintage pieces is a very personal experience, it's about creating a space that evokes emotions and tells a personal story.
Vintage arches, curves, and rounded corners are also at the forefront of this year's trends. They add a nostalgic touch of softness and femininity to a space, breaking up the hard lines of traditional interior design. Rounded corners in vintage furniture, like retro sofas and lounge chairs, are becoming the star of the show in celebrity homes.

Let There Be Light
The world of lighting is undergoing a transformation, where the traditional concept of a functional light source is being redefined by the incorporation of bold sculptural elements. These designs are a perfect representation of art meeting functionality, bringing life and emotion to your space through their stunning shapes and silhouettes.
The creative play of light and shadows, combined with the unrestrained shapes and materials, results in lighting fixtures that are elevated beyond their functional role.
