Interior design trends for 2023: Outdoor Spaces

If you’re filling out your mood board or looking for inspo – we’ve got you!


With 2022 in the rearview mirror, for so many of us the past two years have brought the focus back to the home as a living space, an entertaining area, and as a place of work.

Unlike offices, interior design trends for the home are the opposite to utilitarian and communal – the home is where we can truly express ourselves in décor, furnishings, accessories, and colours.

The watchword in design circles has been that of sustainability. Upcycling, using natural materials, and reducing one’s carbon footprint – that interior design shouldn’t quite literally, “cost the Earth.”

If you’re filling out your mood board or looking for interior design inspo, we’ve put together some of the most cutting-edge interior design trends – and it really is a case of getting “back to nature.”

Choosing complimentary door fixtures means you can complete these new and innovative looks with elegance and ease. Read on to find out what you’ll be seeing in display homes and in new renovations throughout 2023.

Indoor/Outdoor Combination Spaces

Geometrics and parallel lines are out – curved and cosy are in.

The sense of comfort and warmth that curved furniture – especially in natural materials such as rattan, wicker, or light woods – will encompass sofas, armchairs, and even dining chairs or outdoor lounges in 2023. It’s definitely something that needs to be experienced.

In terms of style, it fits just between Mid-Century Modern and 80s Contemporary designs, and compliments the earthy, green tones found inside.

As the indoor meets the outdoor, it’s perfect for Gainsborough’s Freestyle locks, which feature a subtle curved handle and edges – satin chrome and matte black finishes matching perfectly with woods, rattan, and earth tones.

Whatever you choose for your indoor designs in 2023, selecting the right door furnishings complete a cohesive look. We believe in choosing an on-trend door handle or pull handle that compliments your design choices, not clash, or look out of place.
