Decoration trends 2013

Although we have only recently started the calendar, certain trends are already making their mark in home decorating in 2013. We summarize some keys to interior design this year that can guide you when choosing the style of your home or premises. Although some trends from 2012 are followed, this year we have new features.

  • Recycling is still in fashion

The DIY ( Do it yourself) culture continues to be a trend in home decoration. Recycling and reusing furniture is in vogue, not only for practical reasons, i.e. for the possibility to take advantage, as opposed to using and throwing away, to minimize our impact on nature and, incidentally, to spend less. Also for aesthetic reasons. Precious and elegant complements can emerge from the most unsuspected materials, such as lamps, candle holders or flower pots. Pallets can be transformed into comfortable sofas or unique coffee tables, while old fruit crates or an old ladder can be turned into wonderful shelves – voila! The only limit is imagination – and time, of course.

  • Use of natural materials

Materials that evoke nature are also trending in 2013 interior design. Stone, wood -also untreated- bamboo, metal or glass, among others… are in fashion this year, so that the decoration is inspired by the natural, the earth and nature.

  • Eclecticism and minimalism

The maxim ‘less is more’, the golden rule of minimalist environments, is still valid in the decoration of 2013. We avoid overloaded interiors, not only in small spaces, but in general. The beauty of simplicity is not only not discussed, but it is also used to give a sense of spaciousness and elegance.

Following this minimal line, this year we are betting on eclecticism in the home to mark its uniqueness and personality. The combination of decorative styles has become a trend. It is not for nothing that we live in a multicultural and global world that, as it could not be otherwise, does not remain at the threshold of the house. Ethnic airs, Arab or chill out motifs are combined with Nordic or renovated classic aesthetics, among others, without forgetting vintage, retro, industrial or rustic touches. The mixture is not only allowed but becomes a hallmark of stylish homes.

  • Use of vintage, retro and renovated classic pieces

Perhaps because of the tendency to reuse, but also because of the inestimable value of history, vintage, retro and renovated classic pieces are often used to give a different touch to home decoration.

Designer furniture that has become, on the other hand, icons of this year’s interior design – be it the BKF chair, the Bertoia Diamond Lounge Chair or the Eames Plastic Armchair. Maybe because they never go out of style.

  • Geometry

Geometry has made its place in the decoration of 2013 with an increasing weight. On the floor or walls (with tiles or hydraulic tiles), in accessories, textiles and even in furniture, mosaics and geometric figures have become a trend.

  • Neutral and pastel colors and combinations

The walls have been transformed into a reflection of the eclecticism that reigns this year. The combination of colors -whether the classic black and white or other pairs (or trios) more daring- to play with contrast and complementarity is worn to give a different touch to the home, which inspires and makes it more welcoming without giving a feeling of cold or impersonal atmosphere.

In this line, wallpapers and decorative vinyls continue to be worn this year, as they were in 2012. It is also possible to leave a brick wall or part of it -painted or not- with wooden or iron beams, etc., giving an industrial or Provençal air, for example.

Natural colors that evoke nature such as earth tones, greens or grays, but also pastel shades are in fashion. Bruguer recently presented the 2013 color trends grouped into five palettes, which it has kindly named ‘Connections’, since everything is interconnected nowadays. The theory of the six degrees of separation that apparently exists between all people gives us an idea of this very thing.

Pantone, for its part, has also presented the five palettes that will set the trend in interior decoration this year, which you can see in this blog.
