Fall is fast approaching (and feels like it has already arrived!), which means changing out the summery, light home décor for something a little more cozy and warm. The suggestions below have been taken from the recent releases of 2013 interior design trend predictions.
On every interior designer's suggestion list this fall is this metal. Polished and antique brass is showing up on staircases, picture frames, tables, bookends, lighting and other accent pieces. Polished brass compliments colorful, bright interiors, and can also add a bit of glamor to rooms that utilize more neutral colors. Antique brass is great for a more settled-in look. The great thing about this material is it can be used in a variety of places in the same room. For example, having a brass bowl, picture frame, wall decoration, and end tables all in the same room would not be overwhelming.
Emerald has been named the color of the year for 2013 by Pantone, the market leader in color and color systems. Green can be used... well, anywhere! Any item from furniture to wall decorations to carpets and rugs may be a perfect canvas for a green accent. Walls even provide a great surface for a green hue, if the rest of your room is a brighter neutral color.
For those who have never heard of wrapped furniture, it's when fabric is used to cover a chair, table, etc., instead of paint. Linen is a very popular material to use when performing this craft. Textured furniture typically has other hardware or elements added to its surface, such as wicker, textured paint, or shaped metal accents.
While a modern kitchen still looks incredible, this cooking area is slowly transforming into a more comfortable environment. Worn in wooden counter or island space is a fantastic way to provide a relaxed feel while still maintaining a classy look. Lighter colored wood is also becoming a popular kitchen floor surface. While some kitchens use contemporary black and white coloring, the new trend is to use light, bright colors in joint with simple, multipurpose accents and hardware.
While this seems to be a trend for 2013, hasn't it always been a popular style? Whatever the season or year, neutrals never lose attractiveness because of their extreme versatility. Colors such as tan, beige, white, gray, black, etc. are considered neutrals because of their lack of tint. However, this makes them incredibly easy to "dress up" by adding a pop of color. The possibilities are endless! Color can be added literally anywhere in a neutral room.
