What’s Trending in Yard Decor for 2023?
Do you love to keep up with interior and exterior design trends? You are in luck! We scoured the internet for the top yard and garden decor trends of 2023 and compiled them here for your convenience.
Check out the top yard design trends below!
Jewel Tone Colors
Pantone’s Color of the Year for 2023 is Viva Magenta. This jewel-toned pink hue will show up in fashion, interior design, and outdoor spaces everywhere.
Yet, the color of the year is not the only jewel tone to consider for your yard. Peridot green, amethyst purple, and topaz blue are other beautiful jewel tones that are perfect for spring decorations.
Eclectic Design Styles
From french country-inspired cottagecore to global designs, the styles taking over yards and gardens are leaning more and more eclectic these days. But what exactly is an eclectic design, you may ask?
Eclecticism combines different styles from varying time periods into one unified aesthetic. Spaces feature a mix of textures, colors, and even trends.
Work from Home-Friendly
The work-from-home lifestyle has transformed home interiors like never before. Now, the outdoor space is getting a work-from-home makeover, too.
Make your yard and garden more workspace-friendly with an all-weather table that doubles as a desk. Use a decorative umbrella to keep the sun off your back. Also, consider adding water features for relaxing sounds as you work.
Front Yard Decor
It seems like everyone is selling their home these days. So maybe that’s why front yard decor is trending. After all, an appealing front yard ups curb appeal, and homes with good curb appeal sell for 7% more than homes without it.
Retainer gardens, front yard furniture, and even metal gazebos are great additions that can spice up your front yard’s design.
Tips for Decorating Your Outdoor Space
Whether you want a trend-led outdoor space or not, we have the tips you need to create a yard and garden that screams ‘you.’ Below, we’ve compiled our top four tips for doing just that.
Choose a Unifying Style
Eclectic design may be in for the yard and garden this year. But that does not mean your outdoor space’s aesthetic should be all over the place.
A good rule of thumb when designing eclectic spaces is to choose one overarching style to dominate. For example, say you want to create a modern look but with the addition of bright colors.
Color is often the antithesis of modern design. Choosing mid-century modern lines, however, does work with color, especially jewel tones. Add in vintage and global touches for a bohemian-like space with plenty of charm.
Add Color and Texture
Does your yard look a bit flat? If so, your decor could be in major need of some color and texture.
Luckily, jewel tones colors are in for yards and gardens right now. Get in on this trend with emerald green upholstery on your couch, citrine yellow lanterns hanging overhead, or sapphire blue rugs to mimic the look of deep water.
Consider different metal tones and finishes, various types of wood and wicker, and upholstery galore to add texture. And even though you are outside already, don’t forget a potted plant or two.
Set the Mood With Lighting
Another 2023 trend for outdoor spaces that we have not discussed is mood lighting. But it really shouldn’t be called a trend. Lighting that sets the mood is always in style, whether indoors or out.
And don’t be afraid to go out of the box. A chandelier is a beautiful addition to any cottagecore-inspired outdoor space. Fire features should be a staple in your rustic outdoor designs.
Our main tip here is to match your choice of lighting with the space’s design style. Lighting may be something you’re missing to elevate your outdoor space.
Bring the Indoors Out
Everyone talks about bringing the outdoors in with plants in your home. But have you ever considered making your outdoor space homier?
The first step to bringing the indoors out is to mimic the design styles and themes you have going on inside. Use repeated aesthetics, colors, patterns, and textures to create a seamless indoor-outdoor feel.
Expanded outdoor kitchens and comfortable yard and garden furniture are must-haves. Add screens and plenty of glass doors and windows to amp up the feeling of still being inside your home.
