1. Denim decor

For those who love a vintage vibe, denim decor is a fun way to bring in texture. “Despite denim being in fashion for as long as any of us can remember, it's fairly new to the world of interiors,” says Dayna Isom Johnson, Etsy’s trend expert. “Denim is a timeless fabric with a casual, lived-in look, and brings an effortlessly cool, ‘70s look to a room whilst adding texture and interest.”

Dayna Isom Johnson is the trend expert for Etsy and a judge on the NBC primetime series Making It. As part of her role at Etsy, Dayna is responsible for keeping her finger on the pulse of the hottest trends on the market. She is in constant pursuit of new and unique finds on Etsy in an effort to unearth the latest and greatest designs, up-and-coming Etsy shops, and sellers with exciting stories.

For a small space, Johnson recommends starting with a few soft furnishings, such as denim cushion covers or an area rug. “You could even upcycle an old pair of jeans or an old denim shirt to try out the look before committing,” she says. This is a trend you can be creative with. “There are over 16,000 denim home decor listings on Etsy for everything from wall art to upholstered furniture, and we’re expecting this to grow in the next year.”

2. Berry romantic

Etsy’s 2024 color of the year is all about bringing in the romance. Berry — a shade that blends rich reds and blue tones — can be thought of as a more refined version of the Barbiecore pink that dominated in 2023. Deeper than pink but softer than red, this gorgeous shade is versatile enough that it can be used in all seasons. In smaller homes, you can use it as a pop of color through decor accents like throw blankets and candles

3. Bold artwork

While wall decor is an easy way to make your small space look more luxe, adding too many can make your space look cluttered. “One trend that I’ve seen lately is the decline of gallery wall ideas, as shoppers look to display art in different creative ways,” explains Johnson. 

A gallery wall can make a space look cluttered and smaller. “Instead, I recommend playing with proportions — using smaller frames or artworks with space between them will make the wall look bigger.” If you’re looking for something more impactful, Johnson suggests picking one large piece to elevate and optimize the space.

4. Statement bathrooms

Even if you're stuck with white tiles in your rental, you can still make a statement with pieces like shower curtains or bath mats. “A small bathroom can have just as much impact as a large one with one or two items,” says Johnson. “I’d opt for beautiful and unique light fixtures to add visual interest to any sized room.” To get started, she suggests finding a standout piece that you love and centering the rest of your decor around it.
