For the Wylde blog this week we’re starting our February features blog series – today we’re  diving into the predicted furniture trends for 2023 and on the horizon are coastal textures. With sustainability at the forefront of many interior design trends this year, we’re expecting to see re-used and recycled materials in furnishings. We’re going to explore how to integrate coastal themes into your existing design scheme in a stylish and affordable way!

The coastal look is the perfect way to freshen up a space with airy fabrics, driftwood and soft curved edges and emphasis on natural textures and light. The beachfront aesthetic is about simplicity and carefully selected personal touches. Memories of being by the seaside evoke the feelings of nostalgia, childhood and holidays – so there is room for heirlooms and trinkets within this familiar design trend.

The obvious colour palettes associated with the coastal scheme are whites as the primary focus but complimented with nude tones, sandy browns and washes of blue – however, pops of bright colours are welcome and you’re not limited to one particular tone. We’d suggest to use contrasting colours in a considered manner to keep things visually decluttered!

It’s about introducing homely, rustic materials into you space. Terracotta tiling or ornaments paired with contrasting yet complimentary sage and turquoise tones. Driftwood and untreated timber are stunning choices for your larger furniture items and shelving options – however, remember that untreated wood will stain more easily, so keep it practical.

One of our favourite looks that has made it through to 2023 is scalloped designs – the ideal nod to beautiful seashells whilst remaining sophisticated and chic. Whether its wavy ornaments or fish-scale tiling – even scalloped seating is a beautiful design statement perfect for giving any living space a new lease of life!
