Earthy tones and bold patterns are all marks of an era of retro design that is recently making a comeback in big ways.

Here is a great article coving some of the stand-out pieces people are learning to love once again.

How to Find and Save on Retro Furniture & Home Decor Trends 2023:

  • Don’t be afraid to try lesser-known brands. The cost of popular names tends to be higher, and acquiring them can be more challenging. Learn about the options available by researching the item or style you desire.
  • Visit an estate sale or antique auction with a friend. The best way to spot swollen prices is to attend multiple events and feel out your local market.
  • Furniture from the past can be purchased online. Avoid online shopping risks by sticking to trusted websites, like 1st Dibs or Chairish.
  • Visit antique stores, fairs, and markets regularly. Perseverance is the key to finding what you’re looking for at the best price.

3. Gallery Walls


In the same way that interior design continues to embrace colour, from beige to jewel tones and warm monochromatic schemes, so will artwork, according to Natalia Miyar, a professional designer. ‘Although a neutral wall is wonderful for art, the juxtaposition of a bold artwork against a wall is incredibly effective,’ she says.

Although some may still prefer sparse spaces in 2023, maximalism is definitely on trend. An art gallery wall is an excellent addition to a maximalist room for displaying photos, personal items, and artwork.

In a gallery wall, filling it with meaningful pieces that reflect your taste and personality is much more on trend than generic prints. Utilize frames with similar shapes or finishes to tie it all together.

Home design in 2023 will feature more coziness with folksy floral prints, from wallpapers to duvet covers to art prints. Florals that evoke calm and crafty vibes will be especially popular this year, so steer clear of bright and saturated patterns.

8. Organic Materials And Shapes

Organic shapes and earth tones are predicted to increase in popularity because they are both rough and refined at the same time. Incorporating metals, stone, and rugged textures to add contrast and visual complexity, softer, curvaceous forms reflect a desire for comfort but in a more refined and sophisticated manner.

9. The Return Of Art Deco

This sophisticated style made its debut in the 1920s and has come and gone a few times. Each time it’s in style, its bold geometry, sleek finishes, and luxurious decorations catch the eye of every aesthete. Expect the bright colours, geometric patterns, and symmetry of art deco to dominate interior design trends in 2023.

  • FAQ

    Where can I get a price list or How come your website doesn’t show pricing?

    Prices vary geographically, depending on where you are building. With the amount of options available, price lists run into thousands of options. Prices change with the options you choose. The best way to get an idea on pricing would be to contact our Design Centre nearest to where you are building.

    Yes our homes include full foundation and basement.

    How long does it take to build a Royal Home?

    It takes less than two weeks to build a home in our factory, but the process from start to finish is very dependent on the timing of obtaining a building permit. For most of our clients the process from start to delivery is twelve to sixteen weeks with move in eight to twelve weeks thereafter.

    What size homes do you build?

    As a custom builder we can build any size home but generally the average size range is between 1300 and 3500 sq feet.

    Do you build garages?

    Yes. Garages are built on site after the home is delivered.

    Are the homes energy efficient?

    Building a prefab home in a factory assures the highest attention to sealing the building envelope and ensures that the cold stays out.

    Do you build stick-built or conventional homes as well?

    We are a custom home builder first and use prefabricated components wherever we can, because it is a better way to build. If you have a remote site or custom home design with large open spaces we would look at what makes most sense for that design and location. This could include prebuilt panels or partially site built specific rooms.

    What makes the building process environmentally friendly?

    Waste in the factory is separated and recycled, reducing the impact on landfills. This has less disruption in terms of noise and time at job site. Building prefab allows for higher energy efficient homes and reduced heating costs.
