2013 Color and Trend Forecast

Just digested this morning the 2013 color and decor trends which includes "Western" and "Americana" as the new trend as you'll read below.  Then picked up a copy of this new magazine - http://www.romanticprairiemagazine.net/ - From denim to washed linen, American casual is the hot new trend. With the election on the horizon and economic recovery -  we celebrate American determination and durability. Our "Super Bright" colors have been going strong for awhile and will incorporate more neon's. Super fun, with just the right POP - These can be used as accents to pull spaces together. On the flip side, "Art Deco" inspiration makes us celebrate classic "city" design with glitzy metals, sleek lines and the sultry mystic that era represented.

How can you incorporate these color trends?  Use the theme as an inspiration as you redesign or rotate a room. What things do you already have in your home that can be used to freshen a space?  Use the color cues for a new paint hue for your walls, a fabric for a chair re-do, or a palette for a remodel.  If replacing lighting, floors or cabinets, let some of these color trends be your muse.
  • The Old West: Color palettes with shades of brown evoke tones of worn saddles leather and  weathered wood, while those with strong hints of red recall clay and prairie land. Faint greens and bolder yellow-greens add out-doorsy diversity, along with stone blues and charcoal grays.

  • Americana
Colors palettes inspired by the American Flag and the Old West will make a splash in textiles and upholstery. Classic denim blue, off-white and autumn red will be a strong presence as well us rustic brown and cowhide patterns to represent the old West trend.
  • Bright Colors:
Primary colors in their brightest form will command attention in 2013, however the neon trend is not expected to re-emerge. Upholstery is trending towards bright reds, light, crystal blues and high impact yellows.
