Home Decor Trends for 2013

With 2013 around the corner, it’s the perfect time to spruce up your home. Ideas for home design in the new year draw on inspiration from mixed metals to bold colors and graphics flaunted on fashion runways. Whatever your style, here are 11 design trends worth trying.

It’s Easy Being Green

Move over Tangerine Tango. Pantone recently named Emerald Green the color of 2013. Get ready to see this lush hue everywhere from bud vases to window treatments. If a green accent wall intimidates you, opt for more subtle touches that incorporate the shade into a larger design, such as an area rug.

A Case of the Blues

Monaco Blue, Pantone’s “it” color for spring, is a vibrant hue. It’s a versatile shade that looks good standing alone or mixed with graphic patterns, which are also en vogue for next season.

Big Bang Blue

Not ready to commit to a room swathed in color? Try a small pop of blue. This gorgeous lacquered chest of drawers is form and function rolled into one.

Great American Design

From the popularity of the television show Boardwalk Empire to the newest version of The Great Gatsby hitting the big screen next summer, it’s clear that the 1920’s are making a comeback. Expect a resurgence of Roaring 20’s art deco in homes, influencing everything from walls to furniture.

Raw Style

Exposed elements are de rigueur in architecture and furniture showrooms. Surfaces made of stone and wood ones that show off natural grains help bring the rustic look of the outdoors into the modern home.

Gold Standard

Metals such as gold and brass are stealing the spotlight from silver. Designers love how these metallics ooze warmth and pair well with almost any color.

Classic Duo

Black and white design was recently trending at the High Point furniture market (the largest in the world). Like a well-fitted tuxedo, this color combo is a timeless style that leaves room for fun design experiments.

Knock on Wood

Unadorned wood pieces that boast a natural beauty and elegance are sneaking into chic houses. Add neutral accents to give the space a cohesive, tranquil look.

Texture Mashup

For an easy way to make over a room, assemble a collection of diverse textures: Grasscloth on walls, stone tables, burlap lampshades, and a patterned rug work together to create a rich interior.

Gone Graphic

Vivid patterns have been springing up on walls, floors, and accessories and will continue to make their way into stores in 2013. Stripes are a particularly popular (and less obtrusive) way to ease into the graphic trend.

On the Bright Side

Take a strong color palette of yellow and green and combine it with various textures for a fresh look. The key? Choose patterns for the walls and floor that complement, rather than compete with, each other, allowing the bold colors to shine.
