10 Home Design Trends Taking Off Right Now

A lot of factors contribute to what homes look like at any given moment. Some are easy to pin down, such as an ongoing desire for classic materials like wood and natural stone. Others are a bit more abstract or unexpected, such as a pandemic and subsequent supply chain issues causing dramatic shifts in homeowner choices. Either way, home design trends can help us understand general moods in society and give us ideas for how we want to shape our own homes.

With that in mind, we asked more than 50 home design and remodeling professionals to share the colors, materials, styles and other details homeowners have been requesting lately. Here are 10 home design trends that came up again and again.

When it comes to the latest home trends, influencers know best. It’s their job to stay on the pulse of what’s new and now, so there’s no better source to reveal the colors, textures, and accent pieces that will be having a major moment this fall. I polled 11 of my favorite follows to find out which fall home trends we can expect to see everywhere in the next few weeks, and boy, did they deliver. Don’t mind me, off to embrace moody hues ASAP thanks to their insights!

Grandmillennial Vibes

“The grandmillienal style continues to reign in popularity, and this fall, we’ll see lots of pattern play. Vintage-inspired patterns will show up in everything from drapery to pillows to furniture upholstery. It’s official: Your grandmother’s patterned sofa is coming back with a fresh, modern twist.” – Anastasia Casey of @anastasiacasey_

Unexpected Color Palettes

“In fashion this year, there were a lot of unexpected color palettes for spring and summer that infused their way into home decor collections. I predict this trend will continue into the fall season with colors such as red, pink, and green making an appearance for those who love color. Those who are team neutral will likely see a lot of olive, caramel, soft blue, and gray hues in stores.” – Monica Benavidez of @monicabenavidez

Dried Florals and Grasses

“I’m loving pampas grass, dried wheat, dried flowers, and beautiful tall branches with golden leaves. My goal for this fall is to put tall branches of leaves into dark, moody, ceramic pots and vases.” – Valerie Darden of @brextoncoleinteriors

Textural Materials

“A few fall home trends I expect to see everywhere include darker wood-toned furniture with an emphasis on antique or antique-looking pieces with character, deep browns and greens in velvet and knubby fabrics, and chrome overtaking brass as the go-to metal finish for furniture, lighting, and decorative objects like candle holders.” – Mallory Fletchall of @reserve_home

Rich, Inky Hues

“Everyone’s been so into bright colors and tones during the warmer months, but I’ve already been seeing rich, inky hues with a lot of texture everywhere. Think black faux pumpkins with lots of imperfections, for example—instead of the white, creamy ones that were in every store last year. I also think boho style as a whole is going to be a little less prevalent for autumn. It seems like people are really leaning into moody browns, rich merlots, and even deep teal colors.” – Lowe Saddler of @howsundayhome

Black Accents

“Black wooden furniture is coming back in a big way with lots of accent furniture and black matte fixtures in the bathroom.” – Ana Isaza of @modernhousevibes

Wine Tones and Weathered Woods

“I expect to see the return of wine colors this fall, especially in textiles, such as table linens, throw pillows, and blankets. Vintage-inspired textile prints will also be trending this fall in those same wine-colored hues. Weathered furniture has also been sneaking into 2022 designs (think less shabby chic and more antique treasure), and I’m certain we will be seeing more of it this fall.” – Lidia Salazar of @everyday_home

Bold Walls

“We’ll continue to see bold floral wallpaper and modern patterns, as well as wallpapered ceilings and themed monochromatic rooms. Also, people are painting the entire room, including the ceiling, one color.” – Tanika Rottura of @tanika_nyclifestyle

Shades of Brown

“I think that shades of brown are going to have a major moment this fall. Browns instantly add a calming warmth to any space and can serve as a neutral that pairs with any palette. It’s the perfect cozy element for fall!” – Tricia Runkel of @triciarunkel

Cobalt Blue

“A trend I expect to see everywhere this fall is the color cobalt blue. I’ve noticed brands have started rolling out lots of cobalt, especially in the form of accent pieces. This might seem unexpected, but cobalt complements neutral color schemes very well, and it’s a fun way to bring in some energy into our spaces—think bedspreads, vases, and throw pillows.” – Dominique Gebru of @dommdotcom

Matchy-matchy design

“In 2023—let’s move past purchasing matching furniture sets because, well, you can tell. While it’s important to coordinate colors and patterns, it is the combination of finishes and textures that truly add style to a home, so don’t be afraid to mix it up. Who knows, you may even enjoy the search for unique pieces!” —Taylor Shanahan, Redmond Aldrich Design

“Grotesque” furniture

“There is something intrinsically alienating about design work with the sole purpose of shock or repulsion. Without humor, nuance, or wit, grotesque design is a wasted opportunity to reach a wide audience in a positive way and a trend I hope we can leave behind in the coming year, because it is an easy shortcut for designers to get attention. I’d like to see more work that adds to the conversation. It can be ‘grotesque,’ but also funny or thought-provoking or layered.” —Jean Lin, Colony

Oversized knits

“Chunky knit blankets are on their way out, and handmade quilts are on their way in. We love a touch of handmade.” —Young Huh, Young Huh Interior Design

Fast furniture

“Let’s say good riddance to fast furniture and invest in signature pieces in 2023! We’ve made such successful strides in moving past fast fashion, so why not apply this same motto to interior design? Unfortunately, overproduced pieces simply look like they are overproduced. And while everyone likes a good deal, it should never be at the cost of quality and style. One trick I recommend is shopping on Etsy for high-quality, handmade furniture or frequenting secondhand and vintage shops for a distinctive piece that also reduces your carbon footprint.” —T.S.

Shiny, sterile environments

“Shiny, new, cold finishes are out. Age, wearability, and anything with a story and a past is in. Patina and age have more depth and meaning than new shiny objects, which means we are drawn to earthier, honed, aged finishes. That’s what’s driving design and everything we source. Instead, try mixing aged metals with organic finishes and layering stained woods—a lot of wood is in.” —Cortney Bishop, Cortney Bishop Design

Regional clichés

“As I look forward to 2023, I’d be thrilled to see fewer recycled ideas in the design world. Barnwood in the mountains or rope furniture and white slipcovers at the beach seem to be a given today. The joy of experiencing something new should be carried into our homes, whether through daring color palettes, or charming and unique hand-crafted materials. Spaces that are inspired and original will never grow old.” —Jessica Jubelirer, Jessica Jubelirer Design

How did 2022’s ready-to-retire designs fare?

Backlit stone finishes, open floor plans, overstuffed seating were among the decorating choices designers were ready to leave behind in 2022. While some lingered into the new year, others updated their statuses to officially dated. Be the judge for yourself with last year’s full list below.

Overstuffed seating

“Let’s say goodbye to 2021 and overly creative upholstered chairs that are overstuffed like a Michelin man—and also sofas with asymmetrical angles that look more like sculpture than a comfortable place to sit. Classic shapes and styles like Jean Michel Frank, George Smith, and Mies van der Rohe remain timeless because they were designed with comfort and proportion in mind rather than what looks intriguing on an Instagram post.” —Michael Cox, Foley & Cox

Pared-down interiors

“I’m tired of seeing pared-down interiors obviously styled by real estate agents and stagers who feel that the only homes that sell are those that are basically empty and devoid of personal effects. Sadly, I think this look trickles down to a lot of editorial and advertising in the design world and DIY’ers who think this is what is on trend. Actually it’s the opposite, and I’m much more keen to see a place that has been lived in and loved that tells a story!” —Frank de Biasi, Frank de Biasi Interiors
