Home Decor Trends for 2013

Home decor trends are a lot like fashion. Things can change quickly. But the classics always remain. When looking at the trends,  there are probably some things you like. And there are probably some you don't. As in fashion, just because something is popular or 'trendy' doesn't mean it is right for you. But it is fun to look, pin a few ideas, and maybe try to incorporate them into your home. Here are some of the most popular looks trending around the web for home decor in 2013.


1. Gold- After so much silver, looks like Gold is making a come-back. The good news, you can mix you metals. Update your home with a variety of metallic finishes. (And yes, the rumors are true, brass is now considered 'chic' again too!)

 2. Lots of Geometric Prints- Of course! Stripes will always be a decorating staple. And along with the super popular chevron, look for hounds tooth and honeycomb too.

3.Botanical Prints & Nature- The owl and the fox have paved the way, now look for even more of the outdoors to find their way in. Look for large floral prints and animal prints- not just leopard! (Notice the subtle zebra print below.) Nate Berkus always said that a room isn't finished until it includes at least one thing from nature. He was ahead of his time :)

4. Emerald Green- Every year Pantone, the color people, come out with a 'color of the year'.  This year, their chosen color is 'emerald green'. Not willing to paint your walls? Me neither. But I might try some glassware, a throw pillow, or a small emerald green accent.

5. Tribal Prints- Not for everyone. But definitely a great way to add color, a new pattern and some texture. All things in moderation right?
6. And the biggest home decor trend for 2013 is to surround yourself with things that make you happy. And if some of those things "do" or "don't fall under the category of 'on-trend', well that's ok!
