Top 5 Home Decor Trends for 2013

You set a high value on your home and want it to look at its very best at all times. So once you have made sure your contents are adequately covered with home insurance from Privilege it’s time to check out the latest design trends for the coming year. Whether you choose to incorporate one or all of them, there are some exciting new ideas to inspire you.

Five Top Trends

1. 3D wallpaper

With 3D gaming and televisions taking the world by storm, it was only a matter of time before 3D wallpaper made an appearance. There are two different types of wallpaper available; the actual textured effect and the ‘trompe l’
oeil’ effect which merely gives the impression of being three-dimensional. Textured wallpapers are ideal for walls that are not perfectly straight as they hide a multitude of flaws and can improve sound-proofing into the bargain. The advances in digital printing allow some startlingly striking designs to be manufactured to create a real focal point for any room in the house.

2. Animal prints

Never off the fashion radar for long, animal prints are set to be big in interior design trends in the coming year. Leopard, tiger and zebra prints can add a strikingly contemporary feel to a room, but this very much depends on using them sparingly. Choose one type of print, and keep to accent cushions, curtains or accessories. Be sure to keep the rest of the room understated to avoid a cluttered feel.

3. Gold

Traditionally used to add opulence to a room, gold is set to be very big in 2013. Accessories in gold add a luxurious feel but, once again, be careful not to overdo it or the effect is lost. Gold leaf highlights architectural features on furniture to replicate the antique French-furniture look and adds a polished gleam to a room.

4. Wood

Wood will never go out of fashion and is set to be big news in the coming year. With the emphasis on ecological soundness, wood is a renewable resource and adds a natural and earthy aspect to home interiors. Whether new or recycled, wooden accents are useful in giving character to a home.

5. Bring the outside in

Botanical art is set to make a major comeback in 2013, with many people already scouring second-hand shops and car boot sales in the hope of picking up an original piece of art. Reproductions are set to be printed on crockery, textiles and utensils as the trend enters the mainstream this year. As with most other trends, it is important to keep the motif to just a few select pieces to avoid the effect from looking too cluttered.
