April is the perfect time to spruce up the home and refresh your living space.

Here are a few interior trends for 2023 to give you inspiration for your home décor...


The online home retailer Wayfair has predicted that 'comfortcore' will be one of the leading lifestyle trends for 2023.

This new interior style trend has been identified on the back of a survey, commissioned by YouGov, where more than 2,000 UK adults were asked to examine their feelings associated with home.

Bespoke consumer insights found that the heightened desire for comfort comes as a response to more than two years of uncertainty.

The research reveals that more people want the home to be a place where they feel safe (69%), want to relax (67%) and share time with family and friends (53%).

More than half of the respondents surveyed (56%) stated that ‘good interior design’ means ‘something comfortable’.

To bring 'comfortcore' to the home, Wayfair suggests layering your living space with plenty of soft, snug, and tactile textures to create a feeling of warmth and cosiness.

A good way to do this is to mix up a range of textures such as boucle, cotton, chenille, linen, faux fur and velvet.

Wendy Brogan, owner of the lifestyle boutique Brogan Buzac on Fore Street in Seaton, explains that for 2023, simplicity is the key.

Wendy said: "Sparse minimalism isn't the look to go for but a desire to simplify and live with items and colours that warm the soul and lift your mood is a definite vibe.

She added: "Neutral spaces are designed to remind us about what matters most and soft, warm colours speak to our core reminding us to rest and re-set.

"Greys have been around for a while but it's now all about warm beiges and light taupes.

"Also, expect colours that you wouldn't necessarily consider neutrals to join the stage.

"Greens and blues with desert sand and sun-washed terracottas remain easy on the eye but will inject a pop of colour."

Wendy explained that a trend is to 'think minimal' but 'warm and inviting', with smooth and natural textures to add interest.

She said: "Lots of wood and colours inspired by nature will be central in room décor and one of our favourite ways to incorporate natural elements is by using live-edge tables made from beautiful raw woods from naturally fallen trees."

The property company, Zoopla has pinpointed 'newstalgia' as a home design trend for 2023 that blends the new with nostalgic items.

Essentially, it's a way to create a fun and eclectic environment without compromising on a clean aesthetic.

This could mean reupholstering a retro armchair by adding pop art or playing with primary colours, then contrasting them against contemporary pieces and cutting-edge tech.

A good source of inspiration for the newstalgia look can come from scouring second-hand shops or looking through old photos from your childhood.
