2023 Trend Watch: Home Design Elements That Inspire Serenity and Joy

Space in our homes to practice self care and self reflection continues to be a top desire for people remodeling their homes. In our annual forecast of emerging design trends for 2023, our team noted the resurgence of interest in homes that emphasize well-being and calm, from creating outdoor living space for morning yoga to transforming a master bedroom into a tranquil oasis for those all-important sleeping hours.

Find inspiration below for spaces in your whole home remodel or new home that support the importance of caring for mind, body, and spirit at home.

Connect to Nature with Indoor/Outdoor Living

This outdoor oasis for a contemporary La Jolla Shores home is open to the living space and kitchen through large bi-fold doors that let fresh air flow through the home. Comfortable seating areas, a fire pit, and a BBQ encourage outdoor dining and entertaining. A water feature just outside the master bedroom creates calming sounds for restful slumber.

Soothe the Mind with Minimal Design

The minimalist design and neutral palette of this modern home helps calm the mind from the cacophony of everyday living. Soft light and airness are emphasized for a soothing mood in the master bathroom. The clients can choose between a luxurious tub and an invigorating shower. Warm woods balanced with white surfaces and clean lines connect the design to nature.
