Coming Up in 2013

Will ’13 bring terrible trends in décor, break new ground or will we have just more of the same?  Here’s what we’re predicting will be big or emerging in this new year, let us know if you like / agree!

Manly Swagger – we have seen a lot of fondant shades, delicate touches and feminine finishes over the last three years, so it’s not surprising the pendulum is swinging in favour of the men in our lives who probably prefer leather to lace.  Expect pin stripes on walls and on fabric, dark leather making a return, and a Gentlemen’s Club flavour emerging for lounge rooms and libraries.

Golden Sunshine – yellow and gold will be prominent tones, used especially for accents and accessories, sometimes even for large items such as sofas.  Gilding on wallpaper and for details on pictures and mirrors will be especially popular.

Feathered Friends – animals, birds and feathers will still feature prominently and we can’t believe how long the bird trend has lasted!  This year it’s hello to gaudy parrots and peacocks and goodbye to owls and ostriches. Feather details are tipped for the top and elephants forecast to be big!

 Suzani Fabrics – we’ve always loved these and are delighted their time is now.

Hollywood Noir – luxe, opulence, over the top lavishness.  Pattern, padding, layers and colour but with decadent overtones – think Black Dahlia rather than Days of Wine and Roses.
