Color Trends for 2023: What to Know & How to Incorporate Them


Every year, design, fashion, and paint companies release their “color of the year” announcements. Subsequently, our furniture manufacturers release new fabrics and pieces that cater to these themes on an annual basis.

After visiting the High Point Furniture Market this fall, and upon evaluating various “colors of the year,” we have a pretty good idea of what styles and design elements will dominate the landscape for 2023. If you want to keep your space on-trend in the new year, check out these tips!

Warm, earthy tones take center stage!

2023 will be a year of warm browns, earthy reds, and nature-inspired color palettes. All colors sit on a temperature scale ranging from “cool” to “warm.” There are tons of variations and hues within each color that can affect the “temperature.” Generally, cool colors include blues and greens, while warm colors include oranges and reds. Warm tones trending for 2023 means we are going to see colors leaning towards the red/orange end of the scale. Neutrals like gray and white will follow suit with warmer undertones that lean brown and beige. If you want to refresh your space for this trend, consider updating your throw pillows, curtains, and décor pieces with warm colors like terracotta or soft brown and ivory tones.

Floral patterns and nature-inspired elements

Floral and nature themes go hand-in-hand with 2023’s warm color palette. When our team visited High Point Furniture Market in October, we noticed many furniture manufacturers displaying new floral fabrics for 2023. These modern floral patterns are extremely versatile and incorporate nicely into a variety of spaces and styles. As you update your space for this theme, look for fabrics and art that pair warm colors with things like flowers, leaves, and other natural elements.
