Like fast fashion, home decor monogrammed wood signs

Of course, that doesn’t mean we should all abandon our decorating phong cách & start from scratch any giây phút there’s a new home decorating trend on the horizon. Also lượt thích in fashion, it’s best mập choose the trends that suit your phong cách & leave the rest. If something doesn’t feel lượt thích “ you, ” skip it .
Personally, I lượt thích Khủng pick & choose a couple of small ways Khủng cập nhật my home each year, lượt thích with throw pillows, a piece of art, or a new paint màu, so sánh things feel fresh & current .
Curious about where interior kiến thiết trends are headed for 2023 ? Is farmhouse going out of phong cách ? Are green walls still going mập be everywhere ? What are the kitchen trends Khủng avoid ?
After biên tập about home decor trends & interiors for kết thúc a decade, I’ve been conditioned béo spot trends, và I love figuring out what’s next. So, I’ve gathered together all of the new looks that I’ve seen emerging recently, from fresh patterns & colors that we’ll all gravitate toward, phệ new ways of mua sắm that’ll help us all navigate the global supply chain slow-down, & rounded them up for you, below .
The biggest home decor trends for 2023
Because there are so sánh many trends happening right now, I’ve broken them lao dốc into a few categories. The first is kitchen kiến thiết trends for 2023, then I’ve also added màu trends, materials trends, và furniture / decor trends .
Kitchen kiến thiết trends for 2023
1. English-style freestanding cabinets .
Image by @simplybysuzy; Home & design: Alaina KaczmarskiIf you look at photos of English kitchens, you’ll notice that a lot of times, the cabinetry is freestanding. This basically means the cabinets are more lượt thích furniture pieces that are slid into place, & not mounted bự the wall / floor. While this look is timeless across the pond, it’s becoming a trend in the U.S., where our kitchen cabinets are generally built-in, or “ fitted ” as they say in England. You’ll notice in the kitchen above, by blogger Alaina Kaczmarski, the kitchen cabinets look lượt thích they’re on feet .
2. No upper cabinets .
Until about năm trước, upper cabinets in the kitchen just seemed lượt thích a given. You had a lower mix of cabinets, và then an upper phối .
Then, Instagram và Pinterest started swapping out upper cabinets for open shelving. And in 2023, you don’t need any shelving at all. Just wall space that you can use for art or windows or anything that isn’t storage .
The look is definitely more contemporary, và if you choose phệ skip upper cabinets in your home, just be sure that you have enough storage elsewhere mập compensate .
tam. Dark green kitchen cabinets .

màu sắc has been creeping back into kitchen kiến thiết little by little end the last few years. It started with contrasting islands in all white-kitchens, or gray cabinets in lieu of White, và now cabinets are being drenched in saturated colors. While moody blues have been a big cơn sốt & will remain popular in 2023, the most of the moment shade is a dark green, a la this kitchen inspo from House và Home .
bốn. Cabinets on the counter
If you take a quick scroll through all of the cabinet photos in this post, you’ll notice a lot of them have one thing in common : cabinets that sit directly on the countertop. It may be a trend, but this look feels stately & traditional .
5. Wood-toned kitchen cabinets .
Design: Taylor + TaylorThe other big kitchen cabinet thiết kế trend is the re-introduction of wood tones. Wood tones were a big no-no in the 2010 s because we had PTSD from the bad wood cabinets of the early 2.000 s, but in the 2020 s, they’re ba-aack .
But, the shiny, orange-toned oak cabinets of 2003 have been replaced with rough-hewn, rich, natural looking woods lượt thích in the photo above by California based Taylor + Taylor interior kiến thiết. Wood grain cabinets are especially gorgeous paired with trắng marble counters & aged brass or bronze hardware .
6. Black countertops .
Image via Room for TuesdayKeeping in line with the moodier kitchen designs, đen stone countertops are also a big trend. You’ve probably already seen them popping up around Instagram .
7. Plaster range hoods
Image via @AlainaKaz on InstagramPlaster or plaster-look range hoods emerged as a big trend in the late 2010 s, part of a turn toward more organic kiến thiết forms all around the home, but particularly in the kitchen. You can get a similar look with wood coated in plaster, or white-painted wood lượt thích Alaina Kaczmarski did above .
Materials và Paint Trends
tám. Painted ceilings
All trắng rooms have given way lớn all sorts of saturation. And we’re not just talking walls. Ceilings are getting a splash of màu, too. So if you’re planning bự paint this year, look up. Painting the ceiling could be a bold move that’ll bring your whole space into the now .
9. Moody paint colors
Speaking of saturation, it seems lượt thích we’ve done a total 180 on the all-white walls trend. Home màu sắc trends are leaning towards moody colors that are dark, but not too dark .
10. Wall moulding .
Shiplap spurned an interest in wall paneling years ago, và since then the look has evolved bự more traditional paneling, lượt thích picture-frame molding và elaborate crown molding, và the farmhouse-inspired board-and-batten paneling ( lượt thích in my entry above ). I love this look because it makes an entire room feel more bespoke. Long live paneling .
11. Checkered tile
Checkerboard tile is a classic, but it’s becoming a more popular pick for new homes và renovations thanks lớn its timeless look. I recently used a dark gray và trắng marble checkerboard tile in our home renovation và I LOVE how it turned out ( see above ) .
12. Sage green walls
Sage green has been an it màu since 2019. Since then, almost every major paint brand has named a shade of sage as their ‘ màu sắc of the year. ’ Benjamin Moore picked October Mist, Sherwin Williams chose Evergreen Fog, PPG’s was Olive Sprig, Glidden chose Guacamole, and Behr’s was Back-To-Nature. Yep, all in the last ba – ish years .
13. Colored Marble

14. Warmed-up neutrals .
Image via RemodelaholicCool gray tones are starting lớn feel dated in the way that “ chảy ” walls feel lượt thích the year 2 nghìn. But warm gray walls ? Now those are chic. Tones that border on warm taupe, gray-brown, or super pale warm grays are the newest neutral for walls. Also : Beige is back, baby .
Furniture và Decor Trends
Boucle is a nubby fabric that started coming back into phong cách a few years ago, notably when Gwenyth Paltrow launched the ‘ Gwyneth ’ chair with cb2. It’s now a huge trend, & one that’s not going anywhere. It was all kết thúc Salone del mobile in Italy in 2022 ( which is an Italian furniture show that’s lượt thích the fashion week of home decor ), so sánh that means the interior thiết kế powers that be are obsessed with it, so sánh we can all expect lớn see it for another five years or more .
16. A secondhave wave
There are SO many reasons that secondhand, vintage & antique furnishings will be big this year. For one, there’s a big issue with supply chains around the world, meaning that everything ( but especially furniture, it seems ) is hard lớn get và taking forever lớn ship. If you’ve tried phệ order a sofa, you know that lead times are literally 4-6 months, or more. Purchasing secondhand can solve a lot of these issues .
Aside from easing supply chain problems, secondhand furniture is also more eco-friendly & sustainable. There is so sánh much stuff already in the world, why not repurpose it or give it new life instead of buying something new ?
Thanks phệ Facebook marketplace, Etsy, etc, it’s also easier than ever lớn find pre-loved & vintage pieces .

17. ’ 80 s silhouettes

’ 80 s decor is back ( but we’re doing it more tastefully this giây phút around, praise be ). The biggest way we’ll be working in ’ 80 s glam is through silhouette. Think of the chunky, rounded, geometric furniture designs that have emerged kết thúc the last few years as a reaction Khủng all of the midcentury modernism we’ve been cơn sốt with kết thúc the last decade. ( Which is exactly what happened in the ’ 80 s : after the OG midcentury modernism craze in the 1950 s – 1970 s, the bold Memphis thiết kế phong cách took end in the ’ 80 s & early ’ 90 s ) .
I’ve seen this new ’ 80 s – inspired furniture paired with super organic pieces, lượt thích the oversized pottery, primitive accent pieces, và earth-toned palettes & the result is chic AF. It also, ironically, pairs well with some of those midcentury pieces you’re surrounded with right now .
18. Antique wall art ( or at least wall art that looks antique )
Image via @FiresideAntiquesPreferably, it’s in big gilt frames. Even better if it’s propped up on your kitchen counter or taking center stage in an otherwise contemporary living room. A few subjects that are particularly on-trend : forest landscapes ( landscape paintings could almost be a trend in & of themselves ), oil portraits, và dark, moody still lifes. This is a trend I’ve gotten on board with big giây phút in my own home .

19. Organic pottery .
Image via Honestly WTFAgain, this one’s super-specific, but it’s also everywhere. Big vessels & planters that look lượt thích they were handmade 400 years ago ? So hip for 2023, và the answer bự the tripod-style planters that were on-trend a few years back .
Shop it :
đôi mươi. New traditionalism
Also known as The Studio McGee look. This style, which mixes earthy neutrals with shades of green & xanh, the rusticity of farmhouse phong cách, & fresh traditional furnishings is the look of the masses in 2023 .
21. Cone lamp shades
You couldn’t give away cone-shaped or pleated lamp shades five years ago — just ask the Goodwill. But now, a pyramid-like silhouette is all the rage when it comes bự lighting. I scored the vintage lamp ( & conical lampshade ), above, on Etsy .
22. Silver accents .

Brass has been the it metal end the last decade, but shiny silver-toned metals are making a comeback. I think it’s because they pair beautifully và add nice contrast mập all of the warmer-toned colors coming on the scene .

23. Cane và rattan

Rattan & cane have been having a moment for a couple of years now, but will stick around in 2023. It’s classic, & incredibly versatile because it can read traditional, coastal, bohemian, & modern all at once. Go kiểm tra your favorite home decor retailer và you’ll probably see at least half-a-dozen cane or rattan options : cane dressers, chairs, beds, settees, stools, benches. It’s all kết thúc the house .

24. Grandmillennial decor
Grandma’s attic is officially the spot to shop. For a few years, decor in general has been trending back mập traditionalism. People are * decorating * again, in the sense that we’ve traded minimalism for maximalist, & contemporary trends for enduring styles. Think : matching your sofa fabric phệ your drapery, adding fringe bự the sofa, và breaking out the wedding tàu khựa béo mix a table that would make Dorothy Draper proud .
25. Money trees .
Image via CB2There’s always an it plant. You know a plant has become popular when faux versions start béo crop up at trendy retailers lượt thích CB2, West Elm, và Target. Money trees have taken a spot next Khủng the still-popular olive tree as the houseplant of choice for designers & influencers alike .
26. Rust và Amber
Autumnal-inspired shades lượt thích rust và amber are new neutrals, especially when it comes phệ upholstery. Expect bự see lots of burnt orange velvets, gold-toned mohairs, amber glassware, etc .
27. Abstract art
Image and art via CZ Art DesignAbstract art & brushstroke prints have been trending for years now ( longer than I thought when I DIYed about 10 different prints for my apartment in Boston in năm trước, & then carted them phệ Seattle, Chicago, & now bự Connecticut because I actually still lượt thích them ). It looks lượt thích those guys are gonna be around for a while longer, because based on all of the art selling on Minted, Etsy, Pottery Barn, West Elm, etc., I think this trend has a few years left in it .
28. Reeded và prismatic glass
From light fixtures, Khủng doors, lớn candleholders, reeded glass will be big in 2023. It’s got a vintage vibe that makes whatever it’s used on feel authentic & original .
29. Mural wallpaper
Image & design: Chris Loves Julia
Mural wallpaper, lượt thích the kind above in the home of Julia Marcum, is part of the turn towards traditional again. But, I also think it’s an extension of the landscape art trend, just done on a larger scale. I love it .
30. Checkerboard pattern

Checkerboard pattern is having a big moment across all things decor, but especially for area rugs & throw pillows. Adding a pop of the pattern is one of the easiest ways phệ bring your look up-to-date .
Home decor trends going out of phong cách
Of course, there will also be some trends that will see their last leg in 2023. Here are a few overall aesthetics I think we will start bự move away from this year. I điện thoại tư vấn them :
Faux farmhouse, or “ Gather ”
For lack of a better thế giới, I’m going béo Điện thoại tư vấn this look “ gather. ” You know, the kind of phong cách that’s based around a “ gather ” sign in a scrolling handwriting fonts. It’s the OG take on the farmhouse look, & arguably one of the biggest home decor trends of the last 50 years .
Farmhouse is still a fairly popular thiết kế phong cách, but it’s evolving into something more sophisticated & less cliché. If you want bự cập nhật your farmhouse phong cách for 2023, ditch any sign you have hanging in your home that points mập where the market is or advertises fresh milk, & any furniture that’s faux-distressed finished. Instead, think about ways béo set in more on-trend pieces into your phong cách. Think landscape oil paintings, authentic antiques or vintage finds, và primitive-style pottery .
Midcentury is a classic look in its own right, but for the last ten years or so sánh, it was THE way bự bởi modern. Meaning, entire rooms were decorated lượt thích a midcentury museum exhibit. The look is tired, và a bit boring, which midcentury should chưa bao giờ be. Going forward, midcentury furniture will be a piece of the puzzle in a room – a chair or a piece of art mixed with traditional or contemporary styles .
đen hardware và Đen windows .
black hardware và windows are a sản phẩm of the farmhouse trend. If you’re about mập bởi a renovation or are building a home, skip the Black windows & hardware. It’s started Khủng feel just a little bit tired ( unless it’s in a home where the đen is authentic, lượt thích a Mediterranean-style or classic Tudor ), so sánh skip it và you won’t suddenly feel lượt thích you have lớn change out all your door hardware in a few years .
Gray-toned wood floors .
Gray-toned wood floors became really, really trendy around năm ngoái, và they stayed that way for about three years, but this trend is already dying out. Not only is gray, as a màu sắc, going out of phong cách but more homeowners & designers are realizing that the màu just isn’t right. Wood floors are beautiful because they’re a natural material, & adding a gray colorwash kết thúc this natural material is just, well, unnatural .
Skip this fading trend & go for something timeless, lượt thích a mid-toned brown or pale pine .
Bright brass .
About a decade ago, we decided brass was back. It was banned for years after the 80 s, & made it’s way back in a big way, in lighting, hardware, furniture legs, kitchen faucets, you name it, it was brass. The brass was typically a brushed gold màu that looked very manufactured .
That look is dying out in favor of a more authentic use of the metal. Unlacquered brass, the kind that patinas end thời gian, is absolutely gorgeous & will always be in phong cách. It also works best when paired with other finishes & feels lượt thích a special touch, not the focal point of a space. This is where we’re going with brass this year và beyond .
How to incorporate home decor trends into your home
First: You don’t have to use them all. Or like any of them.
Trends in home decor are lượt thích trends in fashion. Just because the kids are wearing crop tops và 90 s – inspired athleisure doesn’t mean you have bự run out & grab a bright red FILA tracksuit if you’re more of a J. Crew gal. Some trends will speak mập your personal phong cách và work in your home, & others won’t. Take the ones you lượt thích và work them into your space phệ give it a fresh cập nhật .
Second: Instead of taking trends literally, look at them as a way to get you thinking about your space.
I was at an sự kiện recently, & there was a woman from Home Depot on a panel discussion. She mentioned that, when they decide what paint colors they carry, they choose about trăng tròn percent trend colors và 80 percent neutrals và classic shades .
She said most of the thời gian, people come in béo see what’s new và look at the trend colors, & then go with something more timeless or neutral .
But ! They might vì a trend màu sắc for an accent wall or a front door. You might not be willing phệ paint your home the Sherwin Williams màu sắc of the year, but maybe the màu will inspire you béo change up the màu sắc of the wall art in your living room .
Third: Keep trends in smaller doses
When it comes phệ decorating with trends, don’t adopt one và decorate your entire home in it. That’s a recipe for an outdated space in a few years. Not only is this costly mập change, it’s also not environmentally friendly, và it’s a pain in the @ $ $ .
Design experts generally agree that the best bet is lớn keep your larger pieces classic. So, your sofa, your bed, your dining room furniture. Go for something simple & high-quality, then get a little trendier with everything else. Ditto for major renovations. If you want bự love your space for more than a few years, keep your choices simple & timeless, then layer on personality elsewhere .
How long vì home decor trends last ?
Generally, in both home decor & fashion, major trends last about 10 years. Major trends are things lượt thích the neutral of the moment : In the 2010 s, it was all gray everything. Now, it’s all about brown và beige. Smaller trends, lượt thích specific patterns, or throw pillow styles, or uber-trendy wall art, have a shorter lifespan, about 3-5 years .
