Last week our team was happy to visit Casa Decor exhibition held in Madrid, Spain. It is an annual interior design and decor exhibition that showcases the latest trends and innovations in the world of interior design, bringing together renowned designers and brands under one roof.

The 2023 edition of Casa Decor featured a remarkable display of creativity with over 70 unique spaces, each intricately designed by talented professionals and artists to offer a glimpse into the cutting-edge trends and imaginative designs that will shape the future of interior spaces.

From opulent living rooms adorned with lush botanical accents to modern kitchens boasting the latest smart technology, the exhibition showcased a diverse range of styles and ideas.

While exploring the spaces, we couldn’t help but notice a resurgence of rich jewel tones, adding depth and allure to the interiors. Additionally, nature-inspired motifs were prevalent, with organic textures and earthy palettes bringing a sense of serenity and connection to the surroundings.

Here are some other trends that caught our eye during the visit.

 

Experiments with wall texture.

As you probably know, in recent interior design trends, there has been a notable shift towards incorporating unique and tactile wall textures and coverings. From three-dimensional wall panels to reclaimed wood and textured wallpapers, designers are embracing materials that add depth, character, and a touch of sophistication to spaces.

In Casa Decor 2023 we spotted both innovative and traditional wall treatments like wood and wooden panels, stippled painting, plaster, and stone. All these texture, when used creatively, provide a versatile canvas for wall art and other decorative elements.

Check out comfortable and sweet Leroy Merlin bedroom with its wood panels from sustainably managed forests, earthy living room “Martina’s essence” by Raúl Martins, and “Silence” living room in white, black and gold by Sigfrido Serra y Mateo Climent.

Organic shapes and curves.

The trend of incorporating organic shapes and curves in interior design has been gaining popularity for several years now. It started to gain momentum in the late 2010s and continued to grow in prominence through the early 2020s. Designers and homeowners began embracing the beauty of natural forms and fluid lines, moving away from rigid geometries and straight lines in favor of a more organic and harmonious aesthetic.

From sinuous furniture designs to curvaceous architectural elements, this trend embraces the nature’s asymmetry and adds a harmonious touch to interiors, creating a welcoming and relaxed atmosphere.

Take a look at “Organic flows” bathroom by Erico Navazo that we absolutely loved, “Manchego countryside” living room where Richard of the Tower recreated the atmosphere of La Mancha with furniture and materials from local artisans, conceptual space “Luxury Nomad” inspired by the North American tipi and the steppe yurt, as well as Cynthia Román’s “Home office essence”.

Traditional elements with contemporary touches.

Innovative use of sustainable materials also caught our attention, reflecting a growing awareness of eco-conscious design practices. These eco-friendly touches harmoniously blended with luxurious elements, proving that responsible design need not compromise on style.

the incorporation of artisanal, traditional crafts in a modern context, blending porcelain and carpentry with contemporary design. The fusion of innovation and tradition was especially noticeable in home workspaces and kitchens. For instance, “British inspired kitchen” featured sustainable filtered water faucets and handcrafted cabinets, while “Around the table” by Asun Antó y Javier Baldrich dining room showcased circular economy principles by reviving damaged pieces through restoration for reassembly. “Blue and red” living room by El Corte Inglés and “Memoirs” living room exuded an eclectic and vibrant ambiance, where colourful patterned walls provided a captivating backdrop for even more striking wall art.
