The change of the seasons is always a great time to update your home’s aesthetic—and if you're planning to sell, especially here in the picturesque lakes region of New Hampshire, focusing on current design trends can significantly boost your home's market value.

How does good interior design boost your home value in New Hampshire?

While increasing the value of your home may not be your primary reason to redecorate, excellent design can increase the perceived value of a home, something that's particularly important in the competitive New England market. What’s perceived value? It’s the subjective value a buyer places on a property, which can be elevated by effective staging, strategic landscaping, and well-thought-out design choices. 

According to Country Living, a simple redecoration can increase your home’s value by up to 10%—and that’s without remodeling anything. In regions like New Hampshire, where natural beauty reigns, integrating design elements that harmonize with local scenery can add that extra charm that seals the deal.

New England-Inspired Home design trends for fall 2023

Whether you’re thinking of selling this autumn or not, these fall home design trends will update your space and make it feel fresh. For 2023, we’re seeing a move away from obvious fall motifs (like scarecrows and pumpkins). Instead, you’ll see more subtle decor choices that inspire feelings of coziness with a nod to nostalgia. Here’s what to expect.

Organic and interesting shapes

Organic shapes ousted harsh angles and straight line syndrome at the end of last year, and this trend isn't going anywhere. For the New England homeowner, think about incorporating shapes that echo the natural beauty of our lakes, mountains, and foliage. Curves combined with high-contrast colors, impactful textures, and moody lighting reminiscent of our autumn skies will take center stage.

Warm neutrals

In the fall, New Hampshire’s foliage provides a naturally warm palette that can inspire your home’s interior. Subtle and warm hues such as welcoming honeys and muted peaches will be popular this season. Earthy tones combined with pops of contrasting black or lake-blue can create depth and interest—offering a sophisticated take on the more obvious pumpkin oranges.

Luxurious textures

In New England, fall is a sensory feast—from the crisp air to the crunch of leaves underfoot. This season, expect to see mixed luxury textures like velvet, beadboard, and leather. Locally-sourced materials like New Hampshire wood or granite can add a homegrown touch. Burlap, crochet, silk, dried plants, and more will also be popular. Whether it's wicker furniture reminiscent of a lakeside retreat or walls adorned with textured wallpaper or limewash, there's room to play.

Vintage charm

Fall always skews a little bit vintage, usually because this time of year most people like to get cozy and nostalgic. This year, you’ll see more obvious nods to the past with cottage core and granny chic aesthetic choices that incorporate vintage and vintage-inspired pieces. Expect patterns on the walls and in the furniture, lots of texture, and maximalist ornamentation.

Make it yours

By aligning your home's design with both current trends and local New Hampshire aesthetics, you'll not only enjoy your space more but also potentially increase its market value. Happy decorating!
