Excited to learn more? Let's dive in! 

Earth Tones

If you're a regular reader of the Grandad's Shed blog, you'll know just how much of a fan we are of relaxing grey, blue and green tones. Whilst we don't imagine we'll be leaving them behind anytime soon, 2023 sees us embracing earthier tones in our colour schemes. 

To create a warm and inviting atmosphere, start by incorporating neutral tones such as beige, taupe, and grey. You can use these colours as a base and then layer them with browns and our favourite greens and blues to create a more energetic look.

If you're looking for a look in your room with more vibrancy, we recommend adding accents with pops of vibrant colours like oranges, yellows, and reds will give your space a unique and personal feel.

More than ever with this look, finish your earth toned look by adding texture to your design, incorporate natural materials like wood, stone, and wool.

Modern Farmhouse 

Warm and inviting, this timeless style is set to become especially popular in 2023 as it combines the rustic charm of a traditional farmhouse with modern touches, such as contemporary furniture pieces, bright colour palettes, and natural materials.

The modern farmhouse look is also a great way to create a unique and inviting home, as it can be customised with a variety of different elements to fit individual tastes and preferences. 

Creating the modern farmhouse look in your interior design project can be done in a few simple steps. Start by using neutral tones, such as whites, beiges, and creams (see how well this ties in with our earth tones trend too?!) as your base palette. Next we recommend incorporating natural elements like wood, rattan, and jute to bring a rustic feel to the room. Mix in vintage and antique pieces to create a timeless look, and use accent pieces in bright colours to add a little pop.

Not only is the modern farmhouse look aesthetically pleasing but it's also a relaxing look to hang out in. 

You can also use lots of texture with fabrics like linen and cotton, and layer rugs for added interest. Finally, don't forget to add in plenty of plants and greenery for a relaxing, homely feel.

Investment Pieces

Investing in key furniture pieces is a great way to make sustainability part of your home decor in 2023. Furniture pieces are often one of the most expensive and long-lasting items in your home, so investing in pieces that have been made with sustainable materials and processes can help reduce your environmental impact.

Sustainable furniture pieces are made from materials that are more durable and require less energy and resources to produce. Plus, buying sustainably-made furniture pieces helps support companies and designers that are committed to responsible practices. Many of the furniture pieces that are trending in 2023 also incorporate unique designs and shapes, making them a great way to add a stylish touch to your home. By investing in timeless furniture pieces now, you can help create a more sustainable home and enjoy your furniture for years to come.
