The color that’s trending in fall decor for 2023 is honey! What is it about this warm, soft shade that makes it so perfect for this season upon us? Honey works well as a base color; it's neutral enough to complement other tones, yet has enough richness to stand on its own.
Paired with other muted shades - think sage green, dulled orange, brick red, and neutrals such as brown and black. In the psychology of colors, honey is often associated with comfort and warmth, which makes it an excellent choice for creating a cozy living space.
Another trend for fall is texture. It is a must in any classic, timeless home. Texture adds layers and character to a home, and a textured fabric you will see everywhere this season is velvet! It’s sophisticated and luxurious. Use velvet accent pillows, upholstery, or even drapery to add a touch of plush sophistication to your interiors.
When discussing texture, one must not overlook the natural elements making a big impact this year. A classic design element that designer Maria Wilkinson loves adding into spaces is woven textures like wicker or rattan baskets. Wicker and rattan, traditionally materials of choice for outdoor furniture and boho-chic interiors, are now firmly part of mainstream design.
"It is another nice nod to fall without over-decorating. Natural elements are a classic trend in 2023 and one that I always incorporate into my design style. It’s safe to say I am thrilled about this trend!" -Designer Maria Wilkinson
