Well here I am again letting you what’s new in the world of interior design. People always ask me, “What are the new colors for 2013?” Well here’s what we saw at the Home Furnishing Show in Las Vegas. Lots and lots of bright orange in accessories, bedding and upholstery fabrics everywhere you looked. I saw lime green and spa/ocean blue in every furniture line and bright pink poking its head up in lots of fun ways.
In other words, its color, color everywhere! Forget about beige — soft grey is moving in with a touch of yellow. Bring your color wheel out and pick your favorite. Use it liberally with gusto!
The other thing that I saw in every line was “reclaimed wood”. Instead of the highly polished cherry wood dining table, pull up a chair to a more casual, rustic reclaimed wood table. Many lines showed this last year, but this time Every manufacturer showed something in reclaimed wood. This year they added painted surfaces, hand scraped to look old and unearthed from an old barn. It’s a look not everyone will warm up to, but if you want to be hip in 2013, that IS the wood of choice!
Be watching to see what’s new in accessories…
