What are the most popular interior design hues for 2013? It depends on who you ask. While the exact color palettes vary depending on the forecaster, certain shades are appearing on multiple lists. Today we spotlight 6 of them. Not only are we exploring the colors predicted to make the biggest statements in the coming year, we are featuring images that show these colors in full swing.
How will you choose to incorporate new shades for the new year? One idea: repaint a room in your home. If you’re happy with your wall colors, focus on fabric. For example, you can purchase a sofa in one of today’s featured hues, or select new draperies in one of the up and coming shades. And don’t forget about the power of one or two small pops of color. For example, go with a lacquered tray, a cushion or a vase that reinforces an innovative new color palette. Enjoy perusing the images below for ideas…
One of the most beloved color forecasters is Pantone, and they have officially announced their Color of the Year for 2013: Emerald! Emerald green evokes the vibrancy of nature while at the same time conjuring a jewel-toned richness that can’t be denied. Whether you picture a faceted gemstone, the ridges in a sample of malachite, or your favorite plant when you gaze upon an emerald space or accent, you’ll love incorporating this vivid shade into your interior.
