Dare something new; dare with colour.
My plans for 2023? Having the courage to dare something new, to dare with colour. Let's make a colourful start to this new year by diving into the four main interior colour trends of 2023 – "Lavender Cream", "Red Latex", "Brown Sand", and "Green Deep Lake".
In this post, I delve more deeply into these fresh new colour worlds and their effects and present some matching artworks from my online shop www.tinystories.nl. Have fun while you discover your favourite colour for the new year!
TREND COLOUR 1: LAVENDER CREAM
The soft lilac tone, “Lavender Cream”, is diverse and facilitates diverse moods, radiating peace and cheerfulness. While a deep violet seems extravagant and original, the light "Lavender Cream" is much softer and more relaxing. When you combine it with beige and rust nuances, you can create exciting contrasts. I especially love the friendly aspect of this colour tone. It fills me with peace and relaxation, like a short holiday break from that everyday stress.

TREND COLOUR 2: RED LATEX
The expressive colour "Red Latex" creates a euphoric mood in interior spaces and can set an extravagant scene for individual furniture pieces and accessories like art prints or vases. With its WOW effect, this trend colour is very provoking, with a hint of seduction. Optimistic red tones radiate energy and reveal an eagerness to gather new experiences. This colour lends itself to experimentation and unfolds warmth and comfort in these cold winter months. I recommend using lighter natural tones and white to balance the intense red.

TREND COLOUR 3: BROWN SAND
Warm earthy tones, such as Sand, Clay, Ochre and Terracotta, are calming and satisfy that yearning to live close to nature. This trend colour creates a space that grounds us and offers security. A mixture of a caramel-like brown-orange and a light nude tone, "Brown Sand" exudes the lightness of a Mediterranean summer vacation. Calm colours combine exceptionally well with other nuances and create room for unique interior styling ideas with vintage finds like baskets and ceramics.
