Interior Design Trends 2023

Winter- Ready Homes: 8 Tips for Canterbury Residents

Interior home design is constantly evolving, with new trends emerging every year. 2023, is no different. And we know that homeowners in Canterbury are always looking for ways to update their homes with the latest styles and trends.

One of the biggest Interior Design trends for 2023 is the use of natural materials. Wood, stone, and other earthy materials are being incorporated into homes in a big way this year. This is in response to the growing demand for environmentally-friendly and sustainable products, as well as a desire for a more natural and organic look in the home. Incorporating wooden flooring, stone countertops, woven mats and natural decor accents are all popular choices for incorporating natural materials into a home’s interior.

Neutral colour palettes, such as beige, grey, and white, have always been popular in Canterbury homes. These colours provide a sense of calmness and serenity and can easily be paired with other colours to create a cohesive look. Starting with neutral colour palettes allow for bold fabric choices, and eye-catching artwork. This trend is a great way to add a pop of colour to a neutral-toned room, and it also allows homeowners and renters alike to express their personal style and creativity. This way you could follow popular trends as they come and go or add a touch of unique fun and energy to your spaces with ease.

Minimalism is also making a comeback this year, with homeowners seeking a more simplified and uncluttered look for their homes. This trend is all about decluttering and simplifying your space, focusing on quality over quantity, and creating a clean and streamlined look. This can be achieved through the use of sleek and modern furniture, neutral colours, and clean lines. This trend is particularly popular among homeowners who are looking for a peaceful and calming environment in their homes.


We’re seeing carpets, rugs and runners made from natural, renewable materials like wool, jute, and sisal, making an impact.  Textured and patterned carpets are also gaining popularity, with woven and hand-tufted options being sought after for their unique, high-end look. Neutral colours such as beige, grey, and taupe are still popular, but there’s a growing trend towards bold, statement-making colours like jewel tones and warm earthy shades.
