2023 Spring Trends:

#1: Geometric Patterns

There’s something comforting and visually appealing about geometric patterns – triangles, lines, zigzags, hexagons, and more. You’ll find a lot of black-and-white geometric patterns this spring as we emerge from winter, but colorful patterns will be coming back, too. Use geometric patterns on bedding, pillows, wall hangings, and even wallpaper for a huge indoor zen boost!

Bonus: Tribal Patterns and Colors

“Tribal” is a subset of geometric patterns that will usually look more natural in a space. You’ll find more browns and more fabric-y texture in tribal-patterned pieces. “Tribal” also plays into this unique and eclectic vibe you’ll see throughout the year this year. Choose terracotta, woven baskets, and patterns and textures from all across the globe!

#2: Being “Unexpected”

Of everything 2023 is bringing to the design scene, we probably love this trend the most: using the unexpected in your design schemes. This really opens the door to some cool, interesting pieces – if you want to go cultural and choose furniture that tells a story, go for it! Be you, and decorate in a way that makes you happy and tells your story.

#3: The Bold, Beautiful Indigo

Dark blue has certainly made an impact in our minds in the past few years. However, this spring, we’re seeing a new iteration of dark blue: inky indigo! This is a gorgeous color to pair with golds, grey, and white – it even goes well with juicy wood grains. Using indigo in your minimalist space will certainly turn the style meter up to ten this spring.

2023 Summer Trends:

#1: Metallics Galore

Trinkets, frames, platters, and more – the shinier the better! We’re seeing an uptick in the use of metallics for interior decorating, and you can easily jump on this trend at home. Simply pick up some metallic trinkets to rotate your current floating shelf decór with! Combined with bold, beautiful colors on the walls and throw pillows, your metallic surfaces will really pop!

Bonus: Warm Metallics and Blues

As the summer approaches, you’ll probably also see that indigo warm up and become a richer blue. This pairs well with warmer metallics like copper, rose gold, and brass. Pick candleholders, lampshades, pots for plants, and much more to fill this warm metal vibe. You’ll be surprised how well that rich blue plays with the metallic surface to create an almost “regal” sensation in your space!

#2: Boho Chic Is Still Holding On!

Boho has been around for a while, but it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere any time soon. This will probably please you if you’ve already gone Boho Chic – but if you haven’t, now’s the time! Boho Chic is characterized by natural greens, browns, linens, wood grains, and usually string lights. You might find some black and white geometric patterns in this style, too.

#3: Classy, Shabby Chic Vibes

This is a fun trend to jump into because it doesn’t really require anything crazy. For a shabby, classy vibe, you just need one bold color to take up about a third of the room, while another half of the room is neutral colors and textures. Afterwards, picking one or two throw pillows or small wall hangings that are “mismatched” in vibrant colors will finish off the job. The shabby, yet classy, look can be a hodgepodge of even old, distressed items – as long as the overall color scheme is maintained. Have fun with this!
