We're a little sick of the prolonged winter slump, so let's focus on the spring/summer interior trends forecast instead. It is fresh and pretty soon you'll be de-layering your apartment (and yourself) in favor of a lighter glow-up.

Interior trends 2023 are all about filling your space with comfort (think tactile textures and curvy forms), personality in the form of art and accents, and joy —with the help of those dopamine decorating colors that'll re-energize a room.

Instead of giving you an essay on every SS23 trend under the sun, today I'm focusing on a trend that's got me, myself, and I super excited and ready to mix things up at home.

Right now, there's a push to bring the chilled vibes you'd feel at a villa to your not-so-lavish apartment. I'm dubbing the look as "Mediterranean ripples." This breezy modern trend blends wavy silhouettes, sunbaked wholesomeness, and fun, tactile trimmings with a sea and sky-inspired palette.

Let's dive right in with my favorite shopping picks that encapsulate this trend and give you some much-needed home vacay vibes.
