Interior design industry experts have spoken.
The word is that color – more vibrant home shades – is in for 2023. That’s according to findings from Fixr.com’s annual analysis of home paint and color trends.
Fixr.com talked with 62 interior design experts to understand color trends for 2023, and 58% percent of respondents expect that incorporating neutrals with pops of bold color will be popular this year.
Wallpaper, too, continues gaining ground, with 96% of experts saying it will be a big trend.
Though neutrals have always been considered a safe color choice, interior designers see homeowners moving away from gray and white and making bolder picks. The top five shades are:
Coral, peach, plum, and lavender are also top colors.
To dramatically transform a space, 57% of experts recommend painting an entire room a new color.
Wallpaper, too, can create a wow effect. More than half of designers point to botanical patterns – leaves, and flowering plants, for example – as the top choice for wallpaper. Other options include floral, art deco, and retro print. See (https://bit.ly/3VoTvqc) for examples of wallpaper designs and top paint colors.
Other ways to introduce color include incorporating textiles (44%) and furniture (34%), wallpapering a whole room (36%) or an accent wall (32%), or painting the ceiling (24%).
Still, if you’re planning to sell your home, warm neutrals inside remain the best option, say 82% of respondents. In addition, the dominant color for home exteriors remains white, and natural wood stains and tans have become increasingly popular.
