Bohemian Decor Trends 2013

While attending design school I was always told to “STAY AWAY from trends!!” and I listened for years. I understand the importance of implementing design to appeal to the test of time, but lets have fun with decor. An easy way to bring in the hottest trends into your home is starting small with accessories.

Here are 5 of my personal favorite trends.

One trend that I am so excited about (and surprised about) is brass. This is not the brass you remember from the 80’s. It is clean, bright and will bring energy to any dull corner.

Check out this elephant piece from Emery & Cie.

The color Emerald; Pantone has release the color trend forecast for 2013 and Emerald is the color of the year! This means we will be seeing this bold color on the runway and in our home. Try this trend out with a lamp .. or get daring and paint a wall.

Another trend that is a blast from the past is bar carts. This is a great way to display beautiful china, vases, bottles of water… or even a bottle of fine wine! Obviously that is what mine has on it!

Mixing in the old into the new. The easiest pathway to a boring room is buying a whole room off a page from the furniture catalogue. MIX it up ladies and gentlemen! Adding in one antique piece can bring life, texture and interest. My personal design rule is to have at least half of the room’s furniture and accessories shine vintage.

Bold colors with a mix of ethnic patterns in pillows, rugs and accessories.

Global design is hitting the runways right now. Stay ahead of the curve by knowing interior design follows fashion design. Global patterns seen in the spring lines will be showing their faces in our homes very soon.

    Help, Tami! I feel the urge to paint an emerald wall in the bedroom :)))
    I love your personal choice of trends for this year. Some of them are definitely winners that we could use on the long run, such as the global design trend. as you so cleverly put it.

    Love the elephant and the green lamp in the 4th picture. I also love the chandelier trend which I think goes well with modern minimalistic look. Thanks for sharing your tips :)
