Creating harmonious, comfortable spaces is at the forefront of home interior design for the new year, capturing the simplicity and serenity that’s essential for well-being.
With that in mind, here’s a look at four trends we’re predicting will take center stage in 2023, helping us feel happier and healthier, along with Hunter Douglas window treatments that pair well with them.
You’ll find the roots of this trend in the 1980s. Plush interiors pair with an easy-going, modern style that highlights rounded forms and curves, for a peaceful vibe. Colors also play a part in emotional comfort, with the spotlight on calming, lighter neutrals and earth tones.
This sense of relaxation also carries over to window treatments. The soft forms of Vignette® Modern Roman Shades and Sonnette® Cellular Roman Shades, for example, balance the gentle curves appearing in furniture and wallpaper designs. And you’ll find them with serene fabric and color options, such as Vignette Leela in Just Kissed and Sonnette Elan® MacKay in Pink Himalayan. (Pink Himalayan is also a nod to Terra Rosa, a soothing, rosy pink—and the Color of the Year from Dunn Edwards.)
Fast furniture, which was popular when society was staying at home during the pandemic, is (thankfully) on the downturn.
In its place is the resurgence of carefully crafted pieces along with artisanal textiles. Tradition, history and nostalgia are melding for luxurious, bespoke looks, including those for window treatments.
Hunter Douglas fabrics that complement this focus on thoughtful techniques include the rich weaves of Alustra® Woven Textures® Entwine in White Oak, Capri in Breeze and Silk Road in Dynasty.
Biophilic design (bringing nature into our homes to bolster our overall health) remains popular. You’ll find nature-inspired motifs and textures in everything from side tables and wallpaper to lamp shades and throw rugs. Warmer wood tones and earthy color palettes round out this trend, fostering a connection to the outdoors.
When it comes to window treatments, woven wood shades are a perfect choice for bringing the outdoors in. And if you’re looking for woven woods, consider Provenance® Woven Wood Shades. Handcrafted from natural woods, reeds, bamboo and grasses, Provenance shades infuse an organic feel into a room. They’re also available in three styles: Roman, Waterfall Roman and Vertical Drapery.
Playing off of biophilic design are mineral tones, which are gaining traction in interiors. These hues are rich and warm but muted, similar to natural dyes. We’re also seeing an uptick in pastels, which add a sense of optimism to a space with their light pops of color.
Both mineral tones and pastels evoke coziness in a room while providing a bit more visual interest than shades of white.
You’ll find mineral tones as well as pastels reflected in many Hunter Douglas fabric colors. Just two examples of mineral tones include Vignette Modern Roman Shades Caden in English Tweed and Jewelstone in Tourmaline. If pastels are more your aesthetic, consider Pirouette Satin in Champagne or Sonnette Cellular Roller Shades Elan in Arctic Ice.
