In a world where change is constant, it's refreshing to see that sometimes, the old can indeed become new again. As we enter 2023, retro and vintage trends are making a big comeback in decor, furniture, and design. With people spending more time in their homes, the desire for comfort and relaxation in their surroundings has fueled this resurgence. Additionally, paying homage to the past evokes a nostalgia that is truly irreplaceable. Let's delve into the top retro trends that expert designers believe will make a splash in 2023!

Single-Print, Tone-on-Tone Rooms

Jade Joyner, principal designer and co-founder of Metal + Petal, has noticed a growing embrace of French-style interiors among clients. She envisions rooms entirely enveloped in one print, from the drapes to the upholstery. By combining traditional and contemporary elements, Joyner hopes to see a return to classic interiors. She advocates for "tone-on-tone texture," where a single color is carried throughout the room, offering depth and dimension.

Vintage-Style Furniture

In a world where new furniture faces high demand and long lead times, antique and vintage pieces are experiencing a renaissance. Apart from adding character to a space, these pieces possess a history that contemporary furniture often lacks. Amber Shay, national VP of design studios at Meritage Homes, believes in the resurrection of the past. The trend towards sustainability and nostalgia has contributed to the comeback of vintage and antique furniture. Shay herself has curated an eclectic mix of these pieces in her own home.

The '70s are Back

Shaun Martin, owner and CEO of The Home Buying Company, predicts that interior design trends in 2023 will heavily lean towards the 1970s. Bold colors, disco-esque metallics, and retro patterns are set to make a triumphant return. The '70s were all about self-expression and individuality, so brace yourself for unique statement pieces that add character to homes. To achieve the desired look, don't shy away from mixing patterns and textures. Bold choices are encouraged!

Sabra Ballon, owner of ballonSTUDIO, echoes Martin's sentiments, emphasizing the resurgence of 1970s art deco. However, she notes a modern twist on this era, with less linear and literal interpretations. The goal is to capture the richness of the period while adapting it to suit today's living styles.

Imagine the warmth and individuality that unique statement pieces from the '70s bring to any home. Dark woods, bold colors, and antique pieces with a story behind them will create a cozy atmosphere as we step into the new year.
