Itching to switch up your home’s interior? A new year means a new crop of home decor trends to potentially indulge in. We give you the scoop on our favorite home decor trends for 2013.
A Case of the Blues
That’s right, blue is back, baby. The Boston Globe reports that this popular color is a 2013 “do”. We can’t wait to indulge in furniture and accent pieces in turquoise, denim and navy. Unlike other colors (we’re talking about you, red) you can mix and match shades of blue to create a monochromatic design that feels fresh without overwhelming the senses.
The Rebirth of Art Deco
For those not well versed in the art of art deco, this dramatic design style is commonly characterized by a sleek combo of geometric shapes, clean lines, symmetry and vivid colors.
While 2013’s version of art deco isn’t quite as gilded as the first (1930s) or second (1980s) incarnation, it’s definitely filled with plenty to be excited about. HGTV Canada predicts this year’s take on the trend will involve exotic woods and a penchant for gold and silver. We’re looking forward to a resurgence in sleek bathroom tiling and graphic wallpaper.
A Love for Linens
This simple fabric was a big trend at this year’s New York International Gift Fair. And after sneaking a peek, The Editor at Large reports that 2013’s take on linens leans towards “rough linens that look hand-loomed” in rich, spicy hues.
We think this trend’s earthy vibe is a primo pick as an accent in the kitchen or dining room. Think napkins, tea towels and even throw pillows in caramel, oatmeal and rust hues. Mmmmm…
Keep it Bohemian
The past few years have been full of bohemian home decor. According to the New York International Gift Fair, this year’s take on the mix-and-match aesthetic is dubbed Marrakesh Express. Its exotic, outdoor market vibe can be achieved with embroidered textiles, distressed metal finishes, and rich jewel tones like eggplant, gold and fuchsia. We think this trend is the key to turning your boudoir into a romantic destination.
