Winter Colour Trends 2023
As we head indoors this winter season, the living room, once again becomes a focal point of our daily lives. It’s where we connect, unwind, socialise and entertain. New colour trends in home furnishings, especially in sofas and occasional chairs, are redefining what it means to create a warm, inviting, and personal space
Nature takes the lead
One of the emerging colour palettes for home furnishings is inspired by nature, but with a twist. Instead of the muted tones of the past, we are seeing a rise in deeper and bolder hues, such as loamy reds, terracotta tones, and creamy browns. These colours provide a sense of warmth and cosiness, creating a cocoon-like atmosphere in the living room. For instance, a deep brown leather sofa can add a sense of richness and depth to the space, while a terracotta occasional chair can provide just enough colour and texture.
The new neutrals
Another trend growing in popularity is the choice of greens and blues as neutrals. From sage and olive greens to both soft and deeper blues, these colours evoke a sense of calm and serenity, making them ideal for the living room. A green sofa or an armchair can add a natural touch to the space, while a blue accent wall or a rug can anchor the room and create a sense of depth.
Power to pastels
Pastels make a comeback too, now only elevated and more grown up. Muddy pinks, powdery purples, and desaturated yellows are a more subtle way to bring colour into the living space. These shades work well with natural materials, such as wood, stone, and linen, creating a sense of harmony and balance in the space.

If you want to bring more life into your living room, refreshing brights are the way to go. From electric blue to fuchsia pink and sunshine yellow, these colours can inject a sense of playfulness and optimism to the space. A bright sofa or a statement armchair can be the focal point of the room, creating a sense of fun and creativity.
These new colour trends in home furnishings, especially in sofas and occasional chairs, aim to create a personal, warm, and inviting living room. From the earthy tones of nature to the calming greens and blues, and from the muted pastels to the refreshing brights, there is a colour palette for every taste and style.
The calming creams and cool, somber greys of the last few years now make way for you to reimagine a more vibrant living room space.
