New Interior Trend: The Evolution of ‘Quiet Interiors’
03/02/2023 | Sara McLean |
Why 'Quiet Interiors' are Trending
Marching forward into 2023, there is a transitional trend taking shape in interior design called ‘quiet interiors.’ As we continue to seek out spaces of nostalgia, joy and calm, the basis of ‘quiet interiors’ speaks to the aesthetics of quiet, welcoming and comfortable spaces by showcasing interiors with traditional motifs, gentle patterns and lighter-toned color palettes.
Idyllic environments that feel nurturing and encourage refuge from the chaos of the outside world are enhanced with heirloom-quality touches reminiscent of a visit to grandma’s house. And with a push toward more feminine design forms with softer, curved silhouettes as a reaction to the cold, stark lines of masculine design, this aesthetic deftly blends old and new design styles.
There is a balance of feminine and masculine, vintage and modern, nostalgic and new with highlights of softer color palettes, and traditional and handcrafted work. This perfect blend of both worlds allows for spaces ready for reflection and quiet. Take a look at some inspiration for the new ‘quiet interiors’ trend:
