Our seven favorite floral trends for 2023
With key insights from the experts at Bloom & Wild, 1800 Flowers, and the Flower Council, explore 2023’s favorite floral trends below.
1. A palette of pink
With ‘Viva Magenta’ revealed as Pantone’s Color of the Year, expect to see palettes of deep, rich pink taking over the interior industries in 2023.
The color is described by Pantone as “a shade rooted in nature that descends from the red family and expresses a new signal of strength.” It is a new moving red color that exudes pure joy, encourages experimentation and unrestrained self-expression, an exciting color and a limitless shade that makes a statement.
There’s no better way to celebrate this cheerful new color than with the pink and red flowers that inspired its creation.
Joe Reason, Brand and Creative Director at Bloom & Wild supports this and says: ‘We’ve already seen an increase in people looking for more vibrant pinks versus traditional pastel florals and the pink barbicore trend is expected to fully emerge around the middle of next year.’
2. An eclectic mix of flowers
Expect to see floral displays embodying the rustic and wild throughout 2023, created through a diverse mix of different flower types, unique shapes and contrasting colours, creating an unrefined and asymmetrical feel.
Experts at the Flower Council call this more eclectic floral trend “vintage folklore” and say the trend “represents interest in diversity and the useful life of the product.” Her motto is not to get rid, but to repair and restore with love. In this trend, the bouquets (and flowers) are mostly wild and colorful. Plants, even the misfit ones, are also cherished.
The main flowers to use to achieve this look include:
3. 70s-inspired psychedelics
We’ve seen the ’70s have a major influence on interior trends in 2022, from stunning sunken living rooms to vibrant patterns on furnishings, and this style is set to continue into 2023, on everything from flowers to furniture and fashion.
Inspired by colorful prints and the cheerful Flower Power movement, this floral trend will see a return to loud, impactful color combinations with a retro feel.
4. Soft and soothing colors
We love flowers not only for their gorgeous natural beauty, but also for how they make us feel, with many of us filling our homes with beautiful floral displays and houseplants to make our spaces feel more calm, grounded and relaxing, just like being in the great outdoors. .
Our interior spaces need to not only look beautiful, but also make us feel good, and now more than ever we are designing and designing our homes to be more comfortable and luxurious. 2023 will see a rise in floral trends that promote feelings of comfort and well-being in the home, with an emphasis on soft, muted color combinations.
Trend forecasters WGSN+Coloro predict that “therapeutic” lavender will be the color of the year for 2023, and have dubbed this shade “digital lavender.” “Purple will return as the main color of 2023, representing health and digital escapism,” they say. Digital Lavender will relate to this focus on well-being, providing a sense of stability and balance.
Lead florist, Caroline Grimble, at Bloom & Wild supports this and says: “Lavender is really growing in popularity, and there is potential for it to replace gypsophila in a wedding.” It has a similar ethereal feel with small flowers but a more interesting and on-trend color – plus an amazing scent.’
5. Beautiful pressed flowers
Decorating with dried flowers has been very popular over the past few years, with beautiful dried bouquets found in homes all year round, and is set to continue into 2023 as a floral trend, but with an emphasis on beautiful pressed designs.
Once you know how to press flowers, the creative possibilities are endless! From elegantly framed displays to adding them to homemade cards and decorations, it’s a truly healthy activity.
“We’ve noticed a rise in people sharing ways to preserve their wedding bouquets on Pinterest this year, but this trend will hit the mainstream in 2023, as flower presses are no longer reserved for artisans,” says Bloom & Wild florist Carolyn Grimble.
This also aligns perfectly with what The Flower Council calls, “collecting memories,” a floral trend that focuses on “soothing products that help create a home where beautiful memories can be stored and cherished.”
From meaningful wedding bouquets, to flowers received from friends and family, holding and pressing these sentimental offerings can add an elegant touch to an interior space that comes with a story.
The experts at 1800 Flowers have revealed the beautiful orchid as 2023’s Flower of the Year.
“As we head into 2023, we strive to connect more with others and find deeper, more engaging relationships. One way to do this is to rally around the things that bring us together. The Elegant Lizard is something like that.”
The qualities of unity, beauty and love that the orchid embodies are much needed in today’s world, and permeate any home inhabited by this unmistakable flower.
Orchids add ethereal and elegant beauty to a space, make wonderful gifts, and there are thousands of varieties to choose from.
7. Quiet white displays
“In 2022, white was our best-selling flower colour, and we expect demand for all-white bouquets to increase in the new year, in line with interior and cultural trends,” says Joe Reason, Brand and Collection Director at Bloom & Wild.
A beautiful perennial trend, white flowers can create a calm and soothing atmosphere in the home. White flowers can easily blend into spaces of all styles, and layering different varieties, such as hydrangeas, tulips, baby’s breath and carnations, can make a big impact as a bright, bold and colorful display.
