Shop top home decor trends for your space including mermaidcore and more

Jul 25, 2023

What are some of this year's top home decor trends?

Etsy trend expert Dayna Isom Johnson is here to help us find out.

According to Etsy's 2023 Decor Trend Guide report, dark wood, Parisian interiors, "mermaidcore," paper lighting, "rugs with personality" and vintage patterns are among the year's top trends.

"Two of my favorite home trends for 2023 are rugs with personality and paper lighting," Johnson told "Good Morning America." "Both trends make a strong impact and allow shoppers to showcase their individual personalities -- whether it’s with a standout vintage rug or a uniquely-shaped lantern. I also love that paper lighting creates a soft and inviting mood in any home."

Depending on your personal style and space, you don't have to opt into every trend in order to make your space feel fresh -- or trash your budget.

"A great way to spruce up your home while shopping on a budget is by pairing smaller, trendy items -- like mermaidcore candles or ruffled pillowcases -- with evergreen furniture and decor," Johnson explained. "This way, shoppers can enjoy the trend without breaking the bank."

And if you are looking to invest in a trend, Johnson thinks incoporating dark woods is worth it; they add warmth and "grounding elements."

"Dark woods are also timeless, and I believe that those who opt for dark wood accents or furniture will use and enjoy them for years to come," she said.

So whether you're looking to make a major impact or just add some new elements to your space, continue below to shop Johnson's favorite on-trend picks as well as some of our own.
