Black and White Interior Paint

The year of 2013 is exciting in the world of interior design. The economy is making a little bit of a rebound and many homeowners are more willing to take on home remodeling and house painting projects. This year has opened up a whole new stylish flavor.  As we see over time the way we express ourselves in decorating changes. New colors and styles are making their way to the front. Here are a few of the popular trends in interior design.

Colors that are In

Some of the colors you will see used in house painting are going to look familiar. In 2012, we used a lot of bright oranges, tangerines and bright yellows. This year will capitalize on these already stylish colors, but they will be muted. It is very likely to see a lot of ambers and mellow yellows. Light and bright blues will be in this year. We may see a lot of periwinkle as well as some bright blues because they also offer a calming effect. Navy will be used when a sophisticated air is desired. And neutrals will still be used quite a lot but look for colors like smokey gray or light tan to be used a lot more. Red is still in this year and it is likely it will be seen in many home’s décor.

Patterns are Still In the Box

Patterns can add a great artistic element to a room’s interior design. They can really enhance a room and give it some texture when used creatively. Many use accessories like rugs, flooring, fabrics, wall coverings and tiles to add some pattern to the décor. Many people are a little bit frightened of patterns still and they can be overwhelming if they are overdone. But combining solid colors with patterned items can have a great aesthetic appeal. Geometric patterns are in and clean lines can yield a very modern look. Geometric patterns are great for adding dimension to a room. Stripes are not new to the interior design scene, but they will be hanging around for 2013 as well. Animal prints and floral patterns will all still be included in the home fashion scene.

2013 Styles in Décor

This year’s styles will be somewhat more refined and tailored. They will have unique combinations of layers and textures without being complicated.  Classic styles will remain of course. Styles like classic black and white are tasteful no matter how trends change over time. The Femm Fatale is one trend that will be popular this year in interior design. It is kind of feminine, but not real fluffy or girly. It’s brought in from the 40’s Hollywood and will incorporate soft curvy lines with pops and splashes of purple and pink. It’s a sort of glamorous and sophisticated style that pushes real close to sexy and seductive. And the Metropolitan Style will bring an air of elegance to the mix. This is mixed with the minimalist look that is sharp and clean and uses lots of lines to bring visual interest into play.
