Four Home Decor Trends for 2013

No room for a large sofa? A corner sofa is one of the popular home decor trends this year.

If you are thinking about giving your home a makeover, here are four home decor trends guaranteed to inspire. Read on to find out more about this season’s hottest colors, textures and patterns.

Color Schemes

Last season was all about rich Autumnal tones but as we move into another season, the hottest hues are lighter and brighter. The earthy tones are still present but are used to create a stunning contrast with brighter colours including vibrant blues and pinks. With the help of these superb shades, you can easily breathe new life into an old kitchen, bedroom or bathroom. You might be surprised what a fresh coat of paint can do for your home.


This season’s hottest home decor trends are all about textures. Mixing and matching textures will ensure that you are on top of this season’s trends and the possibilities are endless. A prominent theme in home decor trends is going back to nature and this can be represented through textures.  You could incorporate a marble table, a suede lamp, a course rug and a leather sofa for an eclectic mix of textures. Don’t be afraid to experiment.

The Statement Sofa

If you buy one piece of furniture this year, let it be a statement sofa. When it comes to sofas, the bigger the better, but if you don’t have unlimited space to play with, large corner sofas may be the answer. Corner sofas still give you a lot of freedom in terms of color and texture but they are designed to fit in to the corner to allow you to make the most of your space. They are one of the most popular home decor trends for 2013, so if you already have a statement sofa, you’re in business!


Forget plain decor, the home decor trends right now call for patterns. This is a great way to liven up any room, and it is a good idea to balance plain carpets and walls with patterned furniture. Revamp your armchair with some funky patterned material and instantly update your decor. If you don’t want to change your furniture, you can include a patterned rug and adorn your sofa and chairs with bold striped cushions. You can incorporate as many colors as you like into this decor trend but you can also just use a couple. Don’t be afraid to mix and match colors and patterns, the louder the better.

This is only four of the many home decor trends for 2013. Which one will you be trying out this season?  Share it in the comments!
