A new year comes with all sorts of new trends and influences. 2013 is just around the corner and it would be wise for us to take a sneak peak at what this year will bring in terms of interior design and décor. This way we can keep up with the trends and always be in sync with all the changes.
Goodbye neutrals, hello neons.
One of the most significant influences we’ll have to deal with in 2013 is the strong comeback of neons. Until now, neutrals were a very strong influence but now it’s time to redirect our attention towards something a little more eye-catching. Neutrals won’t disappear from our homes but it would simply be complemented by accent neons.
Stripes have always been an important part of the interior design and décor but now they finally get into the center of attention. So if you’re planning a renovation for 2013, make sure you give them the attention they deserve. Try to use stripes that really stand out and use bold colors and strong contrasts. You can opt for striped wallpaper or even paint the wall and you can always have striped furniture and all sorts of accent elements featuring this detail.
2013 also comes with lots of passion for art. We’re not talking here just about artwork, sculptures, painting and other similar elements but about furniture. There are plenty of artistic furniture designs that could easily become the focal point in any room and any home. They are getting very popular and the main idea and desire behind this trend is to impress in a beautiful way.
Light wood on the floor.
There was a time when dark stained wooden floors were very popular and were considered to be very beautiful. They are still beautiful but the trends and styles have changes and 2013 confirms it. Now the focus is on light wooden flooring that creates the impression of a larger space, that contributes to an airy and spacious décor.
As you may have noticed, accent walls are very popular these days. Usually they feature bold colors and are meant to create contrasts. The novelty for 2013 is the accent wall that features bold prints. The color becomes secondary to the print itself and the focus shifts towards the impact that the print has on the whole room. Different styles mean different types of prints and this is a trend that leaves room to lots of creativity.
