Hot Home Decor Trends for 2013

By Lorigilder @lorigilder

In my last post, I discussed the home design trends for 2013.  Even if you don’t want to invest in a large renovation project, you can still update your home’s interior with this year’s hot home decor trends.

Eclectic and Collected Interiors

As we become more globally connected through the various social technologies that have become more and more widespread in recent years, our home interiors begin to reflect this global influence.  Trending interior decorations are inspired by travel and cultures around the world.  Coupled with this trend is a nostalgia for the past, evidenced in the increasing interest in vintage and retro furniture.  Estate sales and flea markets are great places to search for these decorations, as are online resources like One Kings Lane and 1stdibs.


Eclectic and Collected

Metals and Mirrors

Reflective surfaces are trending in 2013, including bright brass and copper finishes in everything from furniture to light fixtures.

Industrial Accents

Pairing nicely with the vintage and retro furniture trend is an interest in industrial design.  Exposed brick, concrete floors, and accents made of metals and woods are becoming more popular in 2013.

Patterns and Textures

We will be seeing more patterns, from chevron to animal prints, in upholstery, pillows, rugs, and wallpapers this year.  Textured walls using grasscloth or textured panels are trending, as is textured wood cabinetry and textured lighting fixtures.

Gallery Walls

More people have enjoyed expressing their interests through collections of art and photography.  One of the best ways to showcase a diverse collection of art, photography, and collected objects is in a gallery wall.  It can make a powerful and personal statement in your home, especially if you fill it with meaningful images.
