We all want our homes to be a place where we express our individual tastes but we all desire our homes to look stylish, modern and fashionable. If you are considering a home make-over and are a bit lost take a look to 2013’s biggest interior design trends for a source of helpful inspiration.
The big, bold and bright
Forget about muted, pale and washed out tones this year, especially in the living room. 2013 is all about making a statement with bold, bright and striking colours. Think of red, yellow and blue, purchase furniture and homeware that is one simple block colour. You can have so much fun experimenting with different tones and shades.
Your lounge should be a place where you can sink into a glorious sense of heavenly relaxation so you need to ensure you have the perfect living room sofa. Additionally you must have a wonderfully comfortable arm chair where you can curl up with your favourite book and of course a cup of tea. For a modern minimalism inspired look pick a block coloured black leather sofa that contrasts with either white or brightly painted walls.
As stated above, the vintage theme is highly fashionable, so what better way to bring this theme into your home with the addition of a classical chaise longe? It really will add a sense of elegance to your living room or bedroom if you so desire.
The vintage theme is continuously on trend as it transforms homes of any shape or size into classy and delightful places to live. Brass is one material that has made a comeback this year – add accessories such as candle sticks, a vintage bird cage or light fixtures to channel the ambience of the past into your modern living environment.
Floral patterns are back. Do not make the mistake of thinking they are are outdated or will soon be out of fashion. They won’t be. Flowery patterns vary from charmingly pretty to striking statement pieces, but ensure that you do not go overboard by covering your chosen room head to toe in flowers. Follow this simple rule: Use homeware to add pattern to your room – it is easier to change it this week if you change your mind in a few months. Think about the interior designs of the 1960’s and 70’s for inspiration then create a retro-themed paradise for you, your family and friends to enjoy.
Look outstanding with oak
If you have the space add a large oak table to your kitchen or dining area. This light wood is simply stunning and undeniably strong. It will be likely to last a life time. The trend of the 2013 kitchen interior is much softer and welcoming than the popular designs of previous years.
So if you are seriously thinking about redecorating your home and you’re unsure of where to start, use these design trends as inspiration. Mix and match trends or create your own just make sure you think it through and create the home of your dreams.
