There’s good news if are weary of the cool greys and white that have been prevalent in homes in recent years.
For those longing to introduce color, one takeaway from a Fixr.com study may be: “go for it.”
It notes the role that color plays in changing the mood of a room and says that incorporating colors that reflect homeowners’ personalities is okay.
Fixr.com asked sixty-two interior design industry experts about 2023 home color trends. Neutrals with pops of bold color are expected to be the most popular color combination for 2023, according to 58% of the respondents. Wallpaper, too, is expected to be a prominent design element.
The study notes that using neutrals as a space’s backdrop provides a safe way to splash out and experiment with the bold new colors that are showing up this year. It also says that for anyone who has always wanted to go a little richer in tone but who has hesitated to do so, a neutral palette with a bold color is the perfect solution.
Half of the design pros pointed to Terracotta, a red-brown color reminiscent of Southwestern designs and iron-rich clay, as 2023’s most popular color.
One caveat: If you are planning to sell, it’s still best to stick with neutrals.
