Interior Design Trends For 2013


We all want our homes to be a haven of style and relaxation, but deciding how to create that space can prove difficult. If you have chosen to give your home a makeover this year, then take a look at these interior design trends for 2013 for some inspiration. Brass - Brass has gone through a number of revivals over the last few centuries and has remained a favourite for creating that vintage or classic feel for a space.  From candlesticks to light fixtures, brass can add a touch of glamour and old-fashioned style to any room.


Floral – Floral designs are another classic style choice. From the bold prints of the 60s and 70s to the more sedate patterns of the Victorian and Edwardian era, floral patterns are making a comeback. Do not go too overboard, but choose a feature wall or piece of furniture to display your floral pattern.


Cosy kitchens - For quite some time it has been about super modern, minimalistic kitchens. However, in 2013, cosy, homely kitchens are the new trend. Think chunky wood and think fun colours. This type of style gives you the freedom to create a more mix and match kitchen with a number of unique pieces.


Art – It’s all about art in 2013. You don’t have to break the bank on original pieces; prints will give the same look and feel for a fraction of the price. Choose pieces that match your style but that also represent your personality. Interesting art pieces always add depth to a room.


Perfect finishes - If you are going to compromise on anything, don’t let it be fixtures and fittings; poor fittings can ruin the most beautiful design ideas. If you are not feeling confident in your DIY skills then get the professionals in. Professionally fitted kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms can make the most of even the smallest space and will create a perfect finish. Try someone like Betta Living to help you create your perfect fitted kitchen, bathroom or bedroom.


Bright colours - Forget magnolia, 2013 is all about bold, bright colours! Think primary colours like red, yellow and blues, but don’t go too overboard.  Like the floral patterns, choose a key wall or piece of furniture and go bold.


Hopefully you are now equipped with some ideas to help you on the road to creating your ideal home in 2013.
