When we build a RediHome, we’re always looking at the latest in design. And here are some of the trends that we have seen taking off in 2023.
When you’re building a home, it’s all about fresh beginnings. So it’s time to try something new. But knowing where to start can be difficult. That’s what we’re here for. Here are the trends that Bielinski Homes sees taking off in 2023.

Bringing the Outdoors In

Setting the stage for aesthetic trends is Japandi design. This interesting mixture of Japanese and Scandinavian styles creates the perfect minimalistic aesthetic. Think neutral tones, soft colors, and comfort.

This style is all about function and making your living space comfortable instead of just visually appealing. When deciding on focal pieces and furniture, be sure to look for soft and organic-shaped decor. Chairs with curved backrests, centerpieces circular or rounded in shape, and textures like velvet really help this style come to life. For wooden furniture or cabinets, consider dark finishings accented with warm hardware.


Japandi style also centers on bringing natural elements into your home. Plants are your friends. Not only does the green add some color, but plants also help create a sense of calm within living spaces. And to tie the room together, try accessorizing with reclaimed wood or stones. Place them on coffee tables, end tables, or even shelving to bring nature into your design.

Hello, Pastels

We don’t expect to say goodbye to pops of color anytime soon, but in 2023 color will be done differently. Instead of the vibrant yellows and oranges that make great accent walls, we’ll be welcoming pastels into the mix.

Lavender, peach, mauve — and especially sage — are all color options to consider when you’re styling your home this year. And don’t worry about them being “overwhelming.” With these muted, pastel tones, you get all the fun of color without the brightness taking over the entire room. Which leaves space for other design elements to become focal points.

Clean Lines and Comfort

Whether it’s hardware or furnishings, the smallest details can make a huge impact. And we've noticed that people gravitate toward clean lines. What exactly does that mean?

Just like with the Japandi design, we are seeing more rounded, soft shapes. Longer, linear handles that have curved edges. This isn’t a purely aesthetic decision, however. The curved edges actually provide more comfort during day-to-day use. And we all know comfort is key.


Out With the Old

Trends come and go. Here are some design choices we’re bidding farewell to this year.

Traditional Boho — which incorporates macrame as well as tribal and geometric patterns — is transitioning. Boho today is an earthy, terracotta-toned style that features natural elements and uses rattan furniture thoughtfully as accent pieces.

There’s been a change in color palettes, too. We’re moving on from bright and eye-catching blues and yellows to more neutral tones. And say so long to stark white walls. Instead, shades of grays and beiges will now add warmth to the space — making it feel more inviting.

And we can’t forget about furniture. Floating shelves are being used in a new way. Instead of shelves being staggered and layered, we are now seeing just one long shelf or two shelves stacked directly above one another. This keeps your room simple, functional, uniform, and sleek.

Now that you know the ins and outs, it’s time to start designing your dream home. Check out our floor plans here, or talk to a New Home Consultant today.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.
    Barb King
  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
