Dayna Isom Johnson is a household name when it comes to knowing the biggest trends in home decor and design. As the current in-house trend expert at e-commerce company Etsy, the decor guru regularly updates the brand's legions of supporters on the best in home furnishings, color palettes and more. Most recently, Johnson helped curate Etsy's 2023 Decor Trend Guide.

The guide’s timing is perfect, considering we all need a spring refresh. What’s most interesting is that while a lot of the trends are rooted in practice, they’re crafted for the tastemaker whose feet are planted firmly in the world of today. Whether you’re opting for a Parisian-inspired interior or you prefer dark wood, this guide will help you stay abreast of the hottest shifts in the decor space.

"Above all, we’re leaning into authentic, perfectly imperfect homes that feel truly our own. Because at the end of the day, our living spaces are meant to be lived in," says Isom Johnson. 

Check out three of the latest home decor trends to give your abode a fresh look while staying true to your personal style.

Dark Wood

We all love a good dark wood moment, and now is the perfect time to incorporate it into our homes. According to the 2023 report, Etsy’s searches for walnut desks and accessories have increased by 337% among its users. As the desire for woods like walnut, teak, and mahogany ramp up, Johnson feels that the utilization of darker woods not only adds warmth and coziness to a space but also imbues it with a sense of character and sophistication.

Parisian Interiors

Over the last three months, searches for wall mirrors increased by 119%, marble sinks by 96% and custom oil paintings by 67%. The common denominator is that all of these items are characteristics of a classic Parisian interior. The French-inspired aesthetic is characterized by objects that are fabulous in nature with vintage appeals. Thankfully, you can find these items and more on Etsy as you create your very own ode to Paris in your home.
