Interior Decorating Trends 2013
Understanding home decorating trends in 2013 requires knowledge of the world we live in. Wall street is predicting growth, analysts are seeing strong signs of recovery in the job markets and the president of the United States will have just started a new four year term. In a nutshell that means there is a good chance that the middle class is also living better with more disposable income but don't expect anyone to have forgotten the hard times they just struggled through.
Interior decorating is no longer technology driven. In the 1940's and 1950's technology played a large role in the design ideas of modern homes, the radio for example was the centerpiece of weekend entertainment and the whole family gathered around for a good show. Radios were often big and bulky and were the centerpiece of any avant-garde living room.
Today technology has been refined to the point that even the biggest of investments is likely slim and can be tucked out of sight or hung on the wall. Other design components can thus become the focal point of interior design trends.
Low cost and highly stylized decor features in a home are sought after in 2013 leading to a greater appreciation of features such as exposed wooden beams, stone flooring, marble tops and textured walls. Creature comforts that make a home unique may also see expanded inclusion of artwork, statues and antique tables.
