Design Trends 2023

Updated: Apr 1, 2023


Every year in the "design world", and in the fashion world, there are design and style trends. This month I am going to share some home decor trends that are on the rise in 2023!

Color Trend:

Every year, Pantone Color Institute picks a color of the year, and 2023 color, is "Viva Magenta"!

How are Pantone colors are chosen?

"For the Pantone Colour of the Year selection process, colour experts at the Pantone Colour Institute comb the world looking for new colour influences, from the entertainment industry to fashion, travel destinations and socio-economic conditions. Influences can also stem from new technologies, materials, textures, social media platforms and even upcoming sporting events that capture worldwide attention."

Cabinet Trend: "fluting"

Fluted is in the same realm as paneling, moulding, and trim. It can also be referred to as reeded, ribbed, and grooved. This detailing is perfect way to add extra texture in your home without being over the top.

Fluted kitchen cabinets.

Love the clean modern look.


Or bring a single "fluted" piece of furniture.

Accessory Trend:

Warm neutral/earthy tones and wood pieces are on trend. So Tramp Art has made a comeback as a popular accessory to bring in rich wood tone accents.

What is Tramp Art ?

Originating in the 1800's, and becoming more popular during the depression.

This style of art began as a democratic craft, and pieces were constructed from typical waste materials, carved by a penknife, and layered with 3D pieces attached with glue or nails. The craft of tramp art was easily practiced by farmers and laborers. Tramp art was largely produced by adults, predominantly men, but children also created tramp art.

Esthetic Trend:

“We’re putting health and wellbeing first, making time for escapism and embracing nostalgia ... This translates to design through lush, sophisticated touches with equal parts prettiness and drama," said Sara McLean, color expert and stylist for Dunn-Edwards


Architectural Trend:

Curved archway and windows.


Roaring 20's Trend:

Rounded, sculptural furniture pieces as seen in the Art Deco design period are making a comeback.


Lighting Trend:

Lamps featuring natural materials such as wood, glass, and jute will take center stage. This means lights that feature wood, jute, and more. Any material that adds texture and a natural feel is fair game in this design trend.


Monochromatic Trend:

Monochromatic color scheme means"One Color". It is a color scheme that uses

only one hue and all the values (tints and shades of that hue).



Fabric Trend:

Soft, luxurious textured fabrics. These velvet chairs say, "stay awhile, let's chat and dine".


Dinnerware Trend:

Glazed dinnerware

Retro Trend:

Mid century modern pieces are on trend.

Many can be found at your local antique/used furniture stores.


Bathroom Trend:.

Creating a "spa oasis". Along with

soaking tubs and shower rooms,

bring in soft towels,

handmade soaps, and candles


Food Trend:

"Seacuterie Board"

This Australian-originated trend, which involves pickling, fermenting, smoking seafood. A seafood board in place of our traditional charcuterie boards. Bring on the homemade tartar and cocktail sauces. Tartar sauce recipe from Dinner Then Dessert here

Fashion Trend:

Of course along with home decor trends, I love to keep up with the seasonal shoe trends. In 2023 look for:

"The platforms, Mary Janes, and chunky loafers you're loving right now still have a place in your next-season wardrobe, as do every kind of ballet flats you could think of (especially those with a literal en pointe twist)." LauraLainessKaupke,01/23/23Harpers Bazaar


There are so many other design trends forecasted for 2023 I did not touch on. But, basically, 2023 design trends are about comfort and multi functionality. Making our homes a retreat from the hectic world. Spa inspirations, soft textures, color, unique accessories and natural lighting, that create a comfortable abode for you and your family.


Happy decorating!
