After all, successful interior design brings fulfilment to the person who lives there So take our below advice, but don’t forget to make it your own

Tip #1

70s STYLE

The 70s in back in a BIG way. Moving on from the Mid-century modern trend from which it takes similar inspiration, like natural wooden furniture and warm colours such as orange and yellow. Although the difference with the 70s trend is that it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Experiment with unique stand-out furniture, curvy shapes, psychedelic designs and maximalism over minimalism. In a nod to sustainability, try to source secondhand and originals if you can. Artwork is one key way to emphasise the theme. Pick vintage-looking designs with interesting illustrations and graphics


Tip #2

COLOUR

It’s no surprise that with everything that’s happened over the past few years, people just wanna have some fun. Gone are the days when blank white walls are dominating our Insta feeds. Next year’s interior design style is shaping up to be all about colour. Luckily for you, you’re in the right place. Here at DROOL, we love colour and the way you can utilise art to bring colour into your life. Think about bold, energising, and joyful colours, from purple and green, to orange, pink, and red. But how to introduce colour to your surrounding? If like us, you prefer to mix it up a bit, adding artwork to your walls is the perfect way to fuse colour without committing to just one. Maximalism is one trend that encourages bringing dopamine to your home through colour. Think contrasting and clashing patterns, styles and colours. Don’t be afraid to mix up illustrated prints with photography to uplift and enhance the colour palette.

Step #3

CURVES

One prominent interior design style of the last few years is set to stay for 2023. It’s all about curvaceous curves and we want to see them anywhere and everywhere. Think loopy tables, arched doorways, curved sofas, and statement, contoured chairs. Non-linear accessories have peaked and are currently go big or go (stay?) home. Cushions come in various shapes, such as round, scalloped, knotted, and more. But art, oh yes, art. It’s the ideal accessory to tie in a theme. Check out our designs from curvy gradient art to bold colours and rounded shapes, check out our pick of curvalicious designs below


Step #4

DARK AND MOODY

Stemming from the steadily rising fashion trend seen across some of the world’s biggest and baddest fashion houses, it looks like we’re going back to black. Yes, dark and moody interiors are officially in. This interior design style is all about the drama. Think of walls painted in charcoal, grey, deep purple, dark green and black. But if you’re confused about how to match the colours, going monochrome can solve this. Monochrome means choosing one colour (different shades allowed) and going H.A.M. with it. Emphasise the interior design style by incorporating vibey artwork. For the triple black look, pair your dark art with black frames and put this against a dark-coloured wall


Step #5

TEXTURE

How to easily add warmth and dimension to a room? Texture, a.k.a; the buzzword of 2023. This can be introduced through wallpaper, cushions, chairs, lamps and more. In art, texture can represent itself in technique, layers, colour, or typography. It’s a case of deciding which texture to blend in OR stand out from your interior design. Going hard with textured illustrations works well with softer fabrics to create an eye-catching contrast. This is an absolute must for anyone obsessed with the maximalist look, as the organised chaos of modern maximalist home decor sits well with a love for textures and bold aesthetics


Step #6
