Dopamine Dressing 

Dopamine dressing is a rising design trend focusing on bold colours, mood lifting accents and clashing patterns. It can be seen as a form of design escapism, which helps express personality through space. A sense of the 60’s and 70’s can be seen through this maximalist trend, which is expected to soar in 2023. Specific features seen within this trend include ruffles, bold clashing colours, mono-room fabrics, unique fun art pieces and stand out furniture. We had fun designing this WC in London with bold wallpaper, patterned tiles and a hint of luxury with a gold mirror.

Earthy Tones 

Earthy tones have been around for years, however in 2023, we are leave neutrals and grey monotone behind and bringing in soft sunset hues and muted darker tints of colour. Think warm earthy shades of rust, creamy midnight blues and soft terracotta reds. Earthy tones help create a warm, inviting, and relaxing space with their calming qualities. The pink wallpaper created a warm environment in a dining room we designed last year.

Vintage Furniture 

A trend which is continuing to rise in 2023 is buying used, vintage and antique furniture. It’s a unique way to add a lot of character to your home. It is a favoured option from eco conscious clients due to the decreased environmental impact. We enjoy incorporating antique pieces within our projects. In the living room below we sourced an antique coffee table from Paris and restored two British armchairs. 

Statement Window Treatments 

Adding a barrier between you and the outside world has never looked more stylish than now. With the rise of dopamine dressing, we are going to see an increase in statement window treatments. Think matching wallpapers and curtain patterns, fringe trims, scalloped-edge Roman shades and shaped cornices. The pelmets below were made to measure for a Stockbridge town house project.


Spathroom (spa-bathroom) ; your luxury self-care space at home

With the rise of wellness and self-care, we are expecting to see a growth in luxury bathrooms designated as spaces to escape reality, inspire relaxation, and improve self-care. We are going to see calm, soft colours within these spaces to help enhance serenity and peace. These bathrooms are going to incorporate high-end luxury finishes, large soaking tubs and beautifully crafted cabinetry that feels like you’re at a high-end cocktail bar. We designed a halo lighting scheme for this Scottish country bathroom to aid relaxation and give a sense of luxury.
