With spring comes our natural craving for a refresh. We’re ready to throw open the windows and let the warmer air rush in. The longer days and abundant sunshine inspire a shake-up in everything from our routines to our reading lists to our skincare rituals and wardrobes. But my favorite thing to overhaul? My home. Fall and winter call us to move inward, seeking comfort from the warmth found in a faux throw or a fuzzy pillow. Spring and summer, however, meld the indoors with the outside world, finding the influence of flora and fauna in the organic materials we naturally gravitate toward. And when it comes to the 2023 spring decor trends, this observation couldn’t be more apt.

2023 Spring Decor Trends
While we’re all busy spring cleaning and indulging our inner Marie Kondo, it’s time we also consider weaving a few of the inspiring 2023 spring decor trends into our interiors. We spoke with two experts—Grace Baena, Director of Branded Content at Kaiyo, and Marie Joh, Head of Merchandising at The Six Bells—to get a better idea of the trends we can expect to see everywhere this spring.
Aligned with Pinterest’s ‘Hipstoric home‘ prediction (finding creative ways to give vintage pieces new life), our experts anticipated more interest in hand-me-down-chic spaces. And with the sustained craze over Regencycore capturing the aesthetic zeitgeist, expect to see an uptick in tea-time-friendly pieces.
Is your interest piqued? Thought so. Let’s dive into the 2023 spring decor trends designers have their eyes on this season.

Kaiyo’s 2023 Spring Décor Trends
We’ve all been looking for ways to infuse our day-to-day with more happiness and joy. And if we’ve learned anything from Gen Z’s coming-of-age moment, it’s that bright colors and Y2K throwbacks (even if you’re too young to have ever worn them the first time around) can do your mood a whole lot of good. The same goes for your home, too.
Baena agrees. “Turn up the saturation,” she encourages. But the trend isn’t simply about feeling good—it’s being unafraid to go bold and embrace what you love. “2023 is about statement-making individualism, and nothing says bold personal style like daring color choices.”
The trend is a direct contrast to the minimalist vibes that have been dominating homes everywhere over the past few years. “Home dwellers are now putting their personality forward,” notes Baena. “Whether that means a bright wall, accent piece, or both.
“More, after all, is more.”

Making the old new
Personally, I find this to be perhaps the most refreshing trend. After all, buying secondhand isn’t simply an aesthetic choice, but a sustainable one, too. And thankfully, Baena confirms, the stigma around the choice to purchase previously-used furniture and décor is gaining traction—and losing stigma. Instead, she notes that it’s “replaced by a growing consumer desire to curate unique spaces.”
What’s more, after many of us dealt with delays that kept our couches and dining tables in shipping limbo for months, we’re all looking for not only near-instantaneous delivery but savings, too. “Secondhand shopping delivers both without sacrificing quality,” says Baena. “Shoppers are rejecting flat-pack, mass-produced styles or ‘fast furniture’ for better craftsmanship, individuality, the thrill of the hunt, and the stories behind pre-loved pieces—all of which are likely far more interesting than saying ‘I got this at Ikea.’

Six Bell’s 2023 Spring Décor Trends
Vintage tea garden aesthetic
Spring is practically synonymous with romance. Blossoms are blooming, birds are chirping—it’s no wonder we take so much inspiration from nature this time of year. (And with Bridgerton season 3 filming soon wrapping up, ‘tea garden’ hits all the right vibes.) If you’ve been waiting for the right moment to introduce florals into your home, now’s the time.
“Ditsy florals are like stripes or checked patterns——a timeless, nearly-neutral print that pairs well with different styles and aesthetics already in your home,” observes Joh. Pull out all the ruffles and embroidered faves—Joh predicts they’ll continue to trend this season, “particularly in bed linens and textiles.”
Touches of nature
Along the lines of the trend above, expect not just the essence of nature, but to see its motifs in some of your favorite pieces—both statement and subtle. Joh loves them on The Six Bells’ hand-painted candles by Lou & Co and you’ll find them throughout the brand’s bedding collection.
And if you can’t get enough of spring produce in your salads, expect to see it printed on your décor, too. “You’ll see raspberries and blackberries scattered on our mugs, and lifelike candle versions of farmer’s market staples—apples, oranges, lemons, and more,” says Joh.
Last on the topic of organic accents, Joh is quick to mention the texture and depth that you’ll get from raffia and straw this season. While we’ve loved these materials in everything from storage baskets to side tables, expect to see them in more… unexpected places. Joh is obsessed with these materials in everything from placemats to bread baskets to napkin rings.

Just as Baena predicted a rise in secondhand purchases, Joh is seeing a growing interest in well-curated antiques. “Our customers love the antiques we’ve hand-picked for the store and have a hard time leaving them behind when we tell them they’re one-of-a-kind!” she shares. Unique pieces provide an old-world look that’s hard to recreate.
I’ll be pinning Joh’s words on my vision board: “What’s old is new and what’s new looks old.”

There’s nothing better than gathering your loved ones outdoors for an al fresco dinner or a warm spring brunch. Over the past few years, we’ve noted more whimsy coming into play—with fanciful ranunculus taking center stage in flower arrangements and printed napkins and tablecloths being chosen over solid selections. And in 2023? Expect to see even more.
“Mixing and matching colors, prints, and different textures for spring tablescapes is always in,” says Joh. Don’t worry about getting too matchy-matchy!” A stress-free tablescape? We’ll take it.
