These Are the Home Décor and Design Trends That Will Take Over in 2023

Homemade Mid-Century Décor

The '60s and '70s have made their way back into favor, and this era is apparent in everything from interior color palettes to furniture and décor. "People have moved beyond the bright shiny 'mod' vibes of California Palm Springs into the grittier artistic side of mid-century modern design," says Avery Cox of Avery Cox Design. "Think organic shapes, earthy uneven tones, and textural finishes."

Curves and Arches

Sharp edges will make way for softer shapes in your home this year, so expect to see more arched doorways and entries, curved furniture, and rounded sculptural forms. "Design trends always come back around, and we were just in a phase of modernism that included more square edges and straight lines," says Katie Siegel, interior designer at Rumor Designs. "Now we are seeing the pendulum swing in the opposite direction, with curves offering a softness that was not included in the last set of design trends."

Floating Stone Vanities

Those toying with a bathroom renovation should consider the floating vanity trend, which lends an almost ethereal aesthetic to the space. "Whether it's marble or quartz, floating stone vanities are making their way into bathrooms everywhere," says April Gandy, the principal designer of Alluring Designs Chicago. "Vanities are usually one of the main features to consider when designing a bathroom, and a custom floating stone option offers a [striking] look."

Brown-Toned Furniture

Decades ago, brown furniture fell out of style because the trend became "overdone" and prices skyrocketed. Like any good trend, though, it's circled back—just as we're seeing a general uptick in a '70s-era aesthetic (it's all connected!). "A lot of brown furniture ended up in antique, thrift, and vintage stores where designers and artists started to pick it up due to its high quality and low cost, thus restarting the cycle of cool," says Cox.

Reemergence of Tramp Art

Tramp art is a classic American-European form of woodworking that involves the meticulous carving and layering of wood and or utilitarian objects, like nails or sticks. "Like other things that show a human element, tramp art is enjoying a moment for its warmth, texture, and one-of-a-kind-ness," says Cox. "You can use tramp art pieces in contemporary settings to bring character. For example, I love a tramp art box on a kitchen counter for holding things like tea or spices—and tramp art lamp bases are a perfect way to add a new element to a room when you've maxed out other woods, ceramics, and textiles."
