Rich and serene, indigo has always been favorited by interior designers – and this spring, it’s getting some extra love. Courtney Marquez, our Interior Designer, recommneds "playing to indigo’s moody nature with inky washes or giving it a more casual spin with a breezy neutral color scheme." When asked why she thinks it's trending Courtney states simply "it reminds one of May flowers, perfect for this time of year!"

Spring Trend Tip:
“Less is more and more impactful.”

5. Coastal Textures
2020 saw a rise in natural wood, distressed surfaces and other marks of the coastal style – and the trend is carried through to spring ’23, stronger than ever. Courtney's recs include thinking in terms of "neutral hues, white washed finishes and natural elements." Greenery, rattan, reclaimed wood tones, jute, terracotta and linen all fit the latter category. For neutral hues, try greige and different shades of white, which Courtney remarks is "a light way to introduce a spring atmosphere." As for white washed finishes, wood furniture with a thin coat of white paint will do the trick. "It should almost look as though it's been through some wear and tear; a little chip here or scuff there makes for a laidback aesthetic."
6. Retro Colors
In discussing retro colors, Courtney describes them as "taking a cue from the mid-century and 70s interior trends." In particular, "retro mustard and avocado green – along with 'muted' washes and patterns – is dominating decor." Expect to see more and more of blended, washed-out dyes, especially "in indigo and green," in throw pillows, blankets and other upholstered accents. To incorporate the look into your own space, Courtney recommends leaning into "green the most, as it feels like the best match for this time of year." She also counts "wall art, rugs and drapes" as other ways to get the vibe.
7. Mixed Metallics
Embracing the tried-and-true design concept of color movement and rhythm, gradation will pack a powerful punch this spring – in small doses. Courtney affirms that "whereas the traditional line of thinking is to view gradation as a tool to assess how the colors in a room as a whole work together, gradation in spring ’23 will pop up more and more within furniture and accent pieces themselves. Look for throw pillows, lamps and rugs with a gradated blend of color to add a soft touch to spring decor." She also recommends sticking to a light and soft palette. "Spring is all about fresh air and rejuvenation. Personally, I love white and cream to match the season's tone."
Finally, color pairings high in contrast will continue to take over designs this spring. Some of the strongest combos expected to make appearances? "Deep black + fresh white, moody indigo + neutral grey and sparkling metallics + natural wood." Each one of those combinations, though, depends on the tone and style of your space. For example, "a Scandi-inspired home will want to avoid indigo and sparkles, focusing on white and natural light (with black statements for definition)." As a parting piece of advice, she parts with these words of wisdom: "Creating one vision for your home, one aesthetic, is key to - and makes it so much easer incorporating new home trends."
