Deep Dive: Cabin-Friendly Design Trends of 2023
The crystal ball has spoken
Its Friday! Whoa! You know what that means. It’s cabin time! Though instead of your usual Friday Cabins newsletter, today we’ve got an admittedly rare treat—a proper Deep Dive of the likes of our famed A-frame deep dive, our geodesic dome deep dive, and of course, who could forget, our widely shared Guide to Building an Airbnb Cabin Empire deep dive.
Today, we take Rare Deep Dive into the Emerging Design Trends of 2023. After many internal conversations w the Field mag team, plus a strong survey of what leading architecture and interior design professionals were forecasting across the internet, we’re excited to share with you a handful (and then some) of trends most pertinent to the cabin lovers.
Though it goes without saying, this list is by all means non-exhaustive. It’s a guide to overarching themes you may notice in 2023 and beyond. So whether you’re looking for inspo, in the midst of redecorating, or simply want to be In The Know, grab a second cup of coffee and read on, reader.

As a reaction to turbulent emotions and the jarring, global events of the past three years, we’re expressing ourselves through bold, eclectic design choices. But for much-needed grounded comfort, folks are integrating cozy textiles and organic, tactile, materials too. And Maximalist design in general.
Another overarching theme throughout 2023’s predicted trends is a connection to nature. Similar to the fashion industry (hi, GORPcore), “outdoorsy” aesthetics have slowly been seeping into the design industry at large. There’s always been architecture and interior design that’s integrated with or inspired by nature, (think Frank Lloyd Wright, Organic Architecture, Earth Structures, the Arts and Crafts movement, prefab cabins, etc.) but these particular styles largely remained isolated branches of design. Now, we might see parts of each fully integrated into the industry at large.
Anyway, that’s enough of a teaser. Read on for the full monty.
✨ 7 Design Trends to Touch the Cabin Scene in 2023 and Beyond
Maximalism is everywhere right now. From Euphoria’s makeup looks, to the Haas Brother craze in the design world, to Christopher John Rodger’s rise in fashion, wacky, weird, and wonderful is in. Maximalism has been around since Victorian times and beyond, but it’s recent revival has taken the world by storm. It’s all about bold, colorful expression of self. No wall flowers here. Unless it’s wallpaper adorned with them ofc. It’s not for everyone, but it does open the door to expermination and, lets face it, some fun.
2. A Wealth of Color
Along with Maximalism, comes color. We’re saying bye to greys and whites, and integrating bold, unexpected colors onto walls, textiles, and more. Rich earth-tones like midnight blues, yellows, and greens, might come into play and reds and pinks might be particularly popular. Embrace the rainbow.
