Small Moments

Small areas with dramatic touches are making a big splash on the 2023 scene of interior design trends. Creating captivating nooks or tiny areas that evoke a moment of magic and delight not only serve as a stylish background for zoom meetings but are also picture-worthy spaces clients want to instantly capture and upload to social media, effortlessly promoting and marketing your salon or spa business. This serves the tighter budgets we are all experiencing from the economic downturns while still pushing joy out to the greater world. For many years, ethereal light whites and brights have been center stage in the world of interior design trends. To create these insta-ready small moments in a space, a gravitation towards the opposite, the dark and sophisticated, can create an attention-grabbing effect that clients can’t help but say “wow”.

Textured Tile

With TEXTURE being introduced into your salon interior design, a new layer of interest is created by color moving with the play of light.

This past year has seen the ease that is brought on through curves and organic forms in a space. Naturally, this is finding a classic and orderly way to grace salon interiors with arches, one of the upcoming design trends to look forward to in 2023.
