Design Trends for 2013

Despite its negative reputation, the number 13 doesn't always have to be unlucky. I think it is going to be AMAZING!
 I found this article and thought it was a great list of fun and fresh design trends trends for 2013 from design experts, manufacturers and trend forecasters across the country.

#1 Color: Emerald Green for 2013

Its softer-hued palette of Dusk Blue, Lemon Zest, African Violet, Grayed Jade, Linen and Tender Shoots is emboldened by Monaco Blue, Poppy Red, Emerald and Nectarine—the lively, lush Emerald is Pantone's color pick for 2013. 

 #2 Kitchens:

New kitchens are on tap for 2013. Value-oriented remodels will remain popular, with homeowners incorporating existing flooring, fixtures, cabinets and/or appliances into their design plans to save money and retain favorite design elements.
#3 LED Lighting:

Energy-efficient LED products will continue to dominate lighting, and will be prevalent in coves, tray ceilings, toekicks, and under and above cabinets. 

#4 Home Furnishings: Heavy Metal and Reclaimed Wood

Home furnishings will shine in 2013. New metals such as rose gold and gun metal will be mixed, and pierced, hammered and oxidized textural metals will be especially popular. Vendors will add metal to their wood pieces, and faux animal print metallics will provide texture and reflective light in the textiles arena.

#5 Home Interiors: Keep Comfortable

Adding an on-trend color such as cranberry or velvety chocolate to a soothing palette of muted tones and delicate detailing creates timeless interiors, and incorporating vintage pieces fosters a sense of nostalgia, heritage and solidity.

#6 Flooring: Porcelain Tile

One of the biggest style trends of the year will be porcelain tile that emulates the look of hardwood in high-traffic areas, offering the natural beauty of wood with the long-lasting durability and ease of maintenance of tile.

 #7 Repositionable Wallpaper: A Great Decor Idea
Repositionable wallpaper is a decorating mainstay and will become increasing popular. Companies like Sherwin Williams, features peel and stick wallpaper that can be reused hundreds of times without losing adhering qualities…talk about going green in design!
