6 Popular Fall and Winter Home Trends

Interior designers show off how they’re incorporating some of the hottest looks of the season.

As the seasons change, so do home styles. Interior designers offer their favorite looks for the colder months.

Pink and Barbiecore

Brighten up the interior this fall and winter with a hint of pink. Sherwin-Williams chose Redend Point, a blush-beige color, as its 2023 Color of the Year, and the Barbiecore hype is continuing to take off. The iconic Barbie doll is inspiring home interiors with playful hues and frilly décor. View how interior designers are channeling the trend into their styles.

Earth tones and natural wood

Natural wood can add texture to a space, making a design appear less one-dimensional. Also, earth tones offer up a pleasing neutral that is less likely to elicit a love-it-or-hate it response. They pair well with practically any hue, too.

Marble

Last year, the Styled Staged & Sold blog took note of the rising popularity of marble in decorating interiors, including the all-marble look for bathrooms. Marble can offer a luxurious touch, from the countertops to the flooring.

70’s velvet resurgence

Velvet can add a luxurious fabric to any décor. This 1970s throwback is heading into more designs as a rich accent.

Woven elements

In another nod to texture, woven accessories are being incorporated into more styles, whether it’s a jute rug, wicker chair or woven lighting fixture. See how designers are adding this textured element to more of their designs.

Vintage meets modern

What’s old can become new again. Designers are bringing in antiques and vintage furniture to add more personality. Vintage looks are being paired directly against more modern accents.
