10 Home Decor Trends That Will Be Big in Spring 2023, According to Designers

In the coming months of interior design, expect to see bold patterns, high contrast and indigo - lots of indigo! Before you go all-out on decorating, though, take a note from Courtney Marquez, Living Spaces Interior Designer, who advises that when incorporating these top 10 home decor trends for spring 2023, it’s important to remember that “less is more and more impactful.” Whatever your favorites from the interior design trends below - from the Scandinavian influence of curved designs to the splashes of retro dyes - it’s better to lean towards minimalism for the aesthetic to really pop.

Check out the full trend report below for the latest in home decor - and let your favorites inspire your spring refresh!

1. Indigo

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!"

According to Courtney, "The indigo color trend feels fresh for spring. Indigo has both a feminine and masculine quality to it." If you're vying for a backyard rehaul this spring, Courtney vouches for indigo in that department as well: "It's versatile for indoor and outdoor spaces and contrasts well with strong neutrals."

2. Unique and Eclectic

‘Unique and eclectic’ isn’t just about decorating in an unexpected way; it’s also a celebration of culture and personality. Courtney tells us "for spring, it's important to let your furniture and decor tell a story by incorporating unique silhouettes, colors and patterns inspired by your passions." Choosing the right furniture for this mindset, she recommends "starting with a material type that comforts you, whether it's beachy rattan or a soft fabric that you love to touch." After material, "think about color: what makes a design pop is depth and contrast." Other ways to incorporate a more unique aesthetic into your space this season include sourcing souvenirs from world travels, or buying only handmade items. Courtney concludes that "the Living Spaces Elements collection is a great example of all things eclectic!" 

3. Curves

Branching from the umbrella that is ‘cozy and minimalist,’ curved decor emphasizes shapes and textiles from all parts of the globe. Courtney tells us to focus in on one particular region: "This spring, expect a heavy influence from Scandinavia with circular-style accessories, such as woven baskets and pops of sherpa color palettes." She adds that "light natural colors are key in this design style, so prepare a clean base with sand, white, greige and/or cement. And because light paint colors and curved shapes are minimalist, natural materials tend to pop out more." When asked which textures she favors for spring, Courtney emphasizes "light cotton upholstery, wood and distressed metal." If new furniture is too big for a spring-only revamp, Courtney suggests looking to the walls, as "a new curved hanging or art piece can add just as much freshness!"

4. Black

Spring Trend Tip:

“Less is more and more impactful.”

This spring, expect black in every texture and finish, from velvet and leather to natural wood and heavy rug weaves. In theory, this trend might seem a little much, but in practice, it's actually quite simple. According to Courtney, "black is currently being used as a contrast color. It's in lines, borders and stitching detail." (In other words, it's a bedding set with a hint of black — not an all-black bedding set.) Useful for grounding colors and adding depth to any space, black has proven itself a design staple that is here to stay. 

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

Courtney describes another major design tactic for spring ’23 as "mixed metallics, when kept toned down in darker hues and even matte finishes." She sees it as a mirroring of jewelry trends: "the rule of sticking to only gold or silver is out the window, and decor is catching up. Mixing and matching feels eclectic and more personal." Courtney recommends incorporating the look via "art frames, figurines and lamp bases. You can even find some really cool metallics in wall art nowadays — there are so many options beyond just canvas." With all that said, the designer did guide (again) toward minimalism, as "spring home decor trends come and go, and decorating with them, you want to be careful not to overdo anything; less is more and looks simpler, cleaner and better!"

8. Geometrics

If Spring ’23 home design trends will teach homeowners anything, Courtney says "it’s that geometric patterns don’t have to be limited to throw pillows." Incorporated into "wall art with bold colors, table decor and area rugs, groupings, successions and variations of squares, circles and other geometric shapes make a splash." As to why it's trending, well, it's not really. According to Courtney, "geometrics have been trending for a few years now, and unlike curved furniture, which is making a huge and new splash and taking center stage in 2023, geometrics are more of a stable design aesthetic that I expect to see a couple years from now, as well." The most common way she sees it being implemented is "though wall art and rugs. Essentially, flat things."

9. Gradation

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."


10. Contrast

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."
