Our 2013 Trend Predictions!

The New Year is bringing in new trends, and we cannot wait to see where this year is going to take us! We thought it would be fun to pick our top five upcoming trends for 2013. Here it goes!

Wallpaper

Wallpaper has been making a slow comeback for a while now, but we think this is the year we will see it back in full force! We’re hoping for graphic prints, bold colors, and to see it used in fun places! “Best in Show” from Osborne & Little is one of my favorites! It’s perfect for a powder room!

Velvet

This super luxurious fabric is popping up all over the place, from fashion to furnishings, and we are pretty excited! This fabric has instant appeal in so many colors and even just a hint makes us want to run our hands all over it! Try adding these amazing new pillows from Live.Like.You to your favorite chair!

The Sense of Touch

Houses aren’t just for looking pretty anymore. Every space is designed to be fully functional, so why shouldn’t we be able to touch and feel everything in the room. Interaction is key, from soft fabrics to cool accessories! We’re sure you have spotted some oh-so-snuggly extra large cable knit blankets like this one from The Laurel Hedge Blog.

Celebrating Life Through Design

There’s a lot of talk about being your authentic self, and this trend is going to flow right into people’s homes. The only thing that you have that no one else does is yourself, so why not display the best of you in your home! Heirloom family furniture, cool collections, and even vacation memories are the perfect way to personalize your space without having to look too far. See Kelly’s post about her vintage collection of silver HERE and Joann’s post about her custom made family gallery HERE. Whatever it is that makes you unique, show it off, like these stacked vintage suitcases from Country Living.

Emerald Green

We couldn’t be more excited that Pantone picked Emerald Green as the color of the year this year, especially since we had just rebranded our website and blog with the exact same color. Sometimes we are just too good at what we do! We are excited to see where else this color pops up this year! We love the use of the green ceramics as an accent to the green chairs from A Delightful Design!
