Fall 2023 interior trends / Thanksgiving 2023 decor

Don't be fooled by this blog post's title. We may refer to these styles as "trends," but they're just so cozy and beautiful that they might as well stay in our homes forever. Autumn is the perfect season to adopt these new interior looks -- the air turns crisp and the light outside grows softer, creating a pleasant atmosphere for home-making and lazy snuggling.

Take a look at these Fall 2023 interior decor styles highlighted by experts, and use them to make your home a lovely autumn nest!


1. Fall 2023 decor trend: Calm earth tones

It seems that home decorators are still craving calm after the craziness of the last few years. Soft earth colors such as brown, taupe, and dusty pink have been on many color palettes in recent seasons. According to interior designer Jenni Lauri, natural materials and harmonizing colors help us "capture peace... and a sense of well-being." We truly agree!

2. Fall 2023 decor trend: Organic stone

Forget plastics and polymers. Interior designers have fallen back in love with natural stone materials such as soapstone, basalt, and marble. The emphasis is on the organic feel, building an ambiance that's relaxed and rustic, yet stylish and put-together.

Don't worry though, you don't have to gut your house and put up new stone walls! Designers recommend just a few visible pieces made of stone, like tables or a countertop. Or, as stylist Colin King suggests, you could install stone trims for your doors, windows, or moldings.

3. Fall 2023 decor trend: Aged wood

There's just something so beautiful about distressed or patinaed wood. With its homey, timeless character, it looks like it's been part of your family history for generations. Thankfully, this look is in the spotlight this season. Designer Angela Hamwey says darker woods and reclaimed or vintage pieces are big this year.

Reconsider your old cabinet, bookcase, credenza, or desk. With a little refinishing, that piece could become the crown jewel of the room. It can set a cozy autumnal ambiance, too!

4. Fall 2023 decor trend: Granny chic

Grandma style is in! It's been on-trend for a few seasons now, and we have a feeling it will stay longer because of the nostalgic comfort it provides.

Design director Heather Goerzen sums up this interior style as "a chic, updated take on your grandmother's sitting room." Think dainty floral or chintz patterns in pared-down doses -- perhaps as throw pillows or as a cute window valance. Add a skirted sofa or two and a vintage lamp, and you've got a modern version of your childhood home.

P.S. If you're lucky enough to have your Gramma's old dresser or sideboard, you should absolutely incorporate that heirloom piece in your decor!

5. Fall 2023 decor trend: Statement glass

No longer an invisible background material, glass is a choice accent this season. Design mavens are going for glass pieces with color or eye-catching shapes. For instance, interior designer Yvonne McFadden has her eye on smoke-glass and amber stemware, while designers Danielle Colding and Sarah Solis are into handmade Murano chandeliers.

While not all of us can access Italian glass, we can cop the look with vintage stemware or local glass lamps. Bring out those colored glass tumblers for your Thanksgiving dinner!

6. Fall 2023 decor trend: Velvet

Velvet and velvet-like fabrics are a favorite for autumn upholstery. But while they're perennial materials, this year's top textile colors may not be as traditional.

According to Angela Hamwey, designers are veering away from season-specific colors like deep reds and burnt orange, in favor of neutral colors with year-round longevity. That means less plaids, more monochromes; less red, more cream. We think this is easier to transition into the holidays!

7. Fall 2023 decor trend: Comfy formal

Here's another interior trend that's perfect for Thanksgiving and Christmas. The "comfy formal" style blends your familiar homey space with sophisticated elements. Just add a few of these touches: rich wallpapers, cushy upholstery, ornate accents, Victorian-style moldings, drapes, and full tablescapes.

Interior designers such as Robert D. McKinley believe that this return to formality is a kind of revival after the pandemic plunged the world into sweatpants and stay-at-home living. So, with holiday entertaining just around the corner, don't be afraid to really deck the halls -- neoclassical style!
