2023's Coolest Home Decor Trends to Try Right Now
Here’s what’s in (and what’s back) for home decor, according to the editors at HGTV Magazine.
From wild patterns and rich paint shades to fresh wood tones and retro revivals, there are lots of new decorating trends to try that will make your home feel totally 2023. The HGTV Magazine editors rounded up the top styles we're going to be seeing on repeat this year and shopped around for cool decor that makes it easy to incorporate these trends into your space.
The disco decade is cool again. The luxury antiques site 1stDibs has reported a 20% spike in searches of iconic furniture from the ’70s, and designers are embracing vintage hues, like rust and avocado, along with wall-to-wall carpeting and old-school conversation pits. These cozy seating areas are supposed to be sunken, but you can mimic the feel without a renovation: Pottery Barn, Burrow, World Market and Albany Park all sell oversized sectionals with square layouts.

Consider these the new subway tiles. Designers have long loved square tiles, but this year you’ll see big stores stocking them, and at all price points: The Tile Shop has handmade-style ceramic options for less than $13 per square foot. Look for 4-inch tiles, which are the perfect size for a backsplash or bathroom walls.

HGTV Star Prediction:
Home companies are going big: Lamp bases are getting fatter, couches are getting longer and floor mirrors practically take up entire walls. Anthropologie’s Gleaming Primrose mirror (pictured here and all over Pinterest, Instagram and TikTok) stands at 7 feet tall and more than 5 feet wide. It’s already a bestseller!

HGTV Star Prediction:
Flat-Front Wood Cabinets
“These cabinets are winning all of the design awards right now,” says Jeremy Parcels of the National Kitchen & Bath Association (NKBA). According to the group’s latest trend report, modern styles like these will lead the way over the next three years as we start moving away from ubiquitous Shaker-style cabinets. White remains the No. 1 cabinet color choice, but a new survey by Houzz reveals that medium-toned wood is a strong second.

Chocolate (OK, Brown)
For the past decade, home decor has been all about grays and whites, but homeowners have started craving earth tones. “Browns make us feel more connected to nature and are gaining momentum,” says Sue Wadden, director of color marketing for Sherwin-Williams. More pro proof: Designer Nate Berkus recently redid his living room in shades of brown, and Help! I Wrecked My House host Jasmine Roth put an “ugly good” brown plaid carpet in her new cabin.
