These days everyone wants their home, office interior to be perfect. And to make it even more attractive, people are trying new and innovative interior products and décor pieces. Interior Designer, Anupama Bihani, tells more about the ongoing interior décor trends in the market.
Texture and Touch
If people did not pay much attention in the past to how a furniture object feels when touching its surface, this is probably due to the fact that functionality used to be the main sought after characteristic in a household item. Now things are much different. People are in search for “touchable” textures, which inspire warmth and comfort as a way to engage and experience a proper home atmosphere. Suede and wood are two of the materials which will define the interior design world in 2013. Variety of texture will also be a key factor in arranging spaces.
More versatile than silver and less flashy than gold, brass is enjoying its moment in the metallic spotlight. From gold to silver and molten bronzed beauties in between, interiors are currently having a metallic moment.
Embroidery and knitting
Embroidery and knitting is a major trend for 2013. From colorful carpets with thousands of knots to various storage baskets and poof covers, handmade is back and appears it will be here for a while.
The modern twist of these items produced by hand gives them a particular charm, one that cannot be obtained from any industrially produced household decoration.
There’s a rule in designing that says that, “every room can use a touch of black.” Using the color black adds a focal point of color that grounds, anchors, and adds a sophisticated look to a room. Black by itself is striking! Black is the edgiest accent wall.
Stripes, stripes, stripes
In 2013 social spaces will likely turn to design dynamics, in order to inspire vibrant living and energy. One of the simplest ways to achieve this effect is by employing stripes in an elegant manner. Carpets, wallpapers, upholstery, graphic art- each of these elements can wear the distinct feature of movement as long as they are defined by… stripes.
Bold red and black & white patterns are the highlight of the design themes again, only this time associated with minimalist decor complements. The idea is to make things stand out, without compromising in elegance or visual harmony.
Floral patterns with a white background
What can be much refreshing than a beautiful and interesting way to interior design your home with floral theme. Garden looks have always been popular for the invigorating color and cheery designs they add to a room.
Flowers burst into full bloom on the season’s prettiest designs, from delicately painted tableware to boldly patterned textiles.
Floral patterns are also back in style, only this year they come with a twist: a white background. Ensuring a very romantic touch and giving the feeling of a perpetual holiday, these stylish additions make a strong statement in a room. You can go for a variety of colors, as long as the overall result is appealing. Try new fabric covers, graphic art, wall paintings and wallpapers- the effect will be pretty strong.
More and more modern villas are starting to showcase unique design themes and African influences are particularly considered dynamic and “exotic”. In 2013, African influences are said to be a major trend, bringing warm colors and animal skin imitations back into the eclectic interiors of most fashion enthusiasts. In luxury holiday villas across the globe you will likely observe wooden furniture elements decorated with carvings or wrought iron, sculptures and handmade decorations, all defined by the African style.
Whether it is graphic zebra stripes or glamorous leopard spots, animal prints add a touch of luxury to any interior.
