Wallpaper is a key interior trend for 2023. Therefore, in this post, I would like to focus on wallpaper trends in 2023 and introduce you to some incredible patterns and colors which are popular this year.
In the past years, I see an increased number of homeowners choosing very courageous colors and darker tones. Don’t get me wrong, bright colors on the walls are still the most popular option, which normally would multiply the light in the space and increase the airy feel. But darker colors are getting popularity especially in 2023 because they bring this cozy feeling that you have when you cover yourself with a blanket next to the fire pit outside. Now the coziness of darker tones comes indoors, too.
The biggest trend this year is wallpaper from the 70s. How they say, everything new is well-forgotten old. The aesthetic patterns and ballsy colors are what we love a lot this year. It could be as simple as big geometric shapes with flashy colors (like orange or red), or funky patterns you would remember from your parents’ or grandparents’ houses.

This trend started a couple of years ago and it is stronger in 2023 than ever! Botanical themed wallpaper that is normally dark and deep (dark green, dark blue with splashes of bright colors) is perfect for a bedroom and in some cases the living room. In 2023 we love our bedrooms to have the feel and look of the forest. I agree, this does bring us the amazing coziness and calmness that we get from hiking trips in forests and jungles. It brings me the vibe of waking up in a tent in the morning in the forest and enjoying the sounds and beauty of nature.

Floral or botanical wallpaper and animals in wallpapers come hand in hand together. I would say animals in wallpapers are a more advanced option for those who appreciate and support nature. The scenes with animals from underwater (which would be a perfect option for your bathroom), forests and jungles bring this dynamic vibe and a massive interest to your room. It is certainly a touch in your interior that makes a bold statement.

Now, enough of bold statements. Let’s look at some nice options when we want to create a calm ambience in our spaces without flashy and screaming colors. Abstract wallpaper would be a perfect choice if you are looking for something simple and something calming. If you decide to go for abstract wallpaper, my advice is to avoid colors like red, dark blue, purple. They tend to create a little bit of a stress factor, which we don’t want when we build a calm space.

In 2023, when we talk about unicolor wallpaper, we rarely mean one Color. What we talk about is one accent Color and a couple of minor colors or tones and a unique texture. This type of wallpaper is classier, and it is still going to be popular throughout the years. I would see this wallpaper in the homes of career-oriented people with a more serious side. It is a perfect mix of chic, glam and seriousness, but not too boring as if it were one Color.
