Both Elle and Refinery29 have forecasted bright reds as one of the leading shades of 2023. Luminous variations on the primary color appeared across runways from brands like Theory, Head of State, Sandy Liang, Kim Shui, and Jason Wu. The color took on a neon slant at shows like Carolina Herrera, Simkhai, and Gabriela Hearst where it appeared on lustrous fabrics including silk and leather.

New home textiles for Spring/Summer 2023 feature bright, neon reds. Brands including Designers Guild, Kenzo Paris, Hugo Boss Home and Iosis fell in love with the shade. From the lipstick red beach towels and beach pillows from Hugo Boss Home to crimson velvet pillows from Designers Guild, there are bright reds of varying formalities and textures across collections.

  • Try varying textures of reds (silk, velvet, cotton, etc) to create visual interest in a monochromatic look
  • Lay a bright red throw pillow on top of an all white bed to create a striking pop of color

Designer LaQuan Smith took over one of the most famous locations in New York for his AW 2023 collection, the rainbow room. The show was full of rich colors, textures, and notably, bold, vertical stripes. Stripes also appeared in the latest collections from Tanner Fletcher, Thom Browne, and Prabal Gurung.

The pinstripe look has quickly become a bedding trend. Many designers, notably John Robshaw and Hugo Boss Home have made use of the classic pattern in this season's collection. In home textiles, the bold black and white (or blue and white stripe) has appeared on striped duvets, striped decorative pillows, striped robes and striped textiles.

Tips for Styling the Bold Striped Bedding Trend in Your Home:

  • When mixing patterns, bold stripes with florals makes for an instantly classic look
  • Dark bold striped looks pair well with more muted, neutrals shades to keep it light
  • A stylish striped throw pillow can help bring together two colors in a two-toned bedroom

Bedding Trend #3: Large Florals in Your Closet and on Your Couch

For Fashionista, Aemilia Madden wrote that "Unseasonable Florals" were one of the biggest fall trends predicted by NYFW 2023. While we have come to expect florals in the Spring (remember Miranda Priestly's scathing remarks in the iconic scene in The Devil Wears Prada 2006?), the pattern has become a year-round staple. 

Blooms were seen at New York Fashion Week from Molly Goddard, Erdem, Richard Quinn, and Christopher Kane. Designers including Carolina Herrera, Christian Siriano, and Sandy Liang played up the look with rosettes and floral applique. 

The world of home textile design couldn't be more on board with the florals trend. While we have come to expect florals on Designers Guild fabric and Matouk Schumacher fabric, this trending bedding reaches beyond the usual suspects. The latest season of John Robshaw pillows, Christian LaCroix Pillows, and Yves Delorme Bedding all feature enviable statement flowers. Even Ryan Studio has joined in on the look!

The celebration of all things floral has brought with it spring bed sets that celebrate the insect most often associated with flowers: the butterfly. From the small butterfly on Desginers Guild Ikebana Decorative Pillows to the bolder designs of John Robshaw's butterfly pillow and butterfly napkin rings, the motif is one of the biggest trends in home decor.

Tips for Styling the Floral Bedding Trend in Your Home

  • When mixing patterns, large florals can coordinate with a smaller, more intricate print
  • Try color matching other elements in the room to the petals of your print
  • If using a floral printed John Robshaw textile on your bed, a hand-stitched John Robshaw quilt will always coordinate!

Bedding Trend #4: Lavender and Shades of Purple as a Home Trend

Looks in Lavender and shades of purple appeared across New York Fashion Week 2023. Diverse shows including Laquan Smith, Altuzarra, and Christian Cowan featured the shade (pictured above). Stylecaster referred to lavender purple as "the next 'it' color in fashion."

The springtime bedding of 2023 followed suite. Shades of purple, lavender and lilac can be spotted everywhere from Yves Delorme sheets and towels to Designers Guild pillows to Matouk coverlets. These new arrivals feature the icy purple as both an accent, and as an all over color.

Tips for Styling the Lavender Bedding Trend in Your Home

  • One of the best things about lavender is that it is a year-round shade. Feature it in your home from Spring and Summer to Autumn and Winter
  • Pair lavender with lime green for a chic and understated color contrast
  • A little lavender goes along way. Layer a matelasse or add a throw pillow in the shade to subtly bring this bedding trend to your home.

Bedding Trend #5: Metallics in Runway Shows and in Your Home

Shimmery metallics dominated the NYFW runway in 2023. Silver and gold appeared from brands like Michael Kors, Proezna Schouler, SIMKHAI and Jason Wu. These metallics were often mixed with tonal matte pieces to bring the look together.

No one "shines" in metallics quite like John Robshaw, and this season brought a multitude of shimmery pieces. Notably, the classic Lapis pattern is reimagined as a metallic euro pillow, and John's quintessential Verdin shape becomes sparkly on a beaded decorative cushion.

The newest color of Yves Delorme's Triomphe pattern, Bronze, further emphasizes the importance of metallics in this year's fashion and bedding trends.

Tips for Styling the Metallics Bedding Trend in Your Home

  • Gold and Silver Metallics pair beautifully with cream, ecru, and other off-whites.
  • Add a mirrored throw pillow to your sofa for an instantly fun and elevated feel.
  • To translate the metallic bedding trend to the bedroom, layer Yves Delorme Triomphe Bronze Bedding with white and matte bronze pieces
