The new year has arrived, and with the dawning of 2013 comes a new design trend forecast. InsideSeen has explored blogs, newspapers, magazines, and our other industry design sources near and far to give you the ultimate inside scoop on the latest design trends for 2013.
Whether it’s classic florals, stripes, or animal prints patterns will be everywhere in 2013. Building on the popular pattern clashing trend that has taken the fashion world by storm of late, interior design trends in 2013 will follow suite. The trick to this trade? Clash but don’t crash, pick an underlying theme to your pattern clashes, such as color, and be sure to incorporate solids to give the eye a place to rest amidst the array of bold patterns.
With art fairs popping up in more major cities, art is becoming more available to the masses. Art can be the focal point of a room or can set the tone and fade into the background. Of course, always buy pieces that you love, but also try to focus on key design elements: color, line, texture, and light, which can be easily incorporated into your overarching design aesthetic.
Metallic touches, specifically in brass, bronze, and gold will be bringing a homey glow and an elegant touch into your interior designs this year. Incorporate metallics with classic pieces like lamps or mirrors, or add an air of whimsy with more eccentric pieces.
Red, blue, and yellow primary colors will be balanced with green inspired by Pantone’s declaration that the emerald is the color of the year. Incorporate these colors into your designs as wall colors or with furniture, fabric, and wall art.
