I read somewhere that it's been hard to pin down specific fashion trends for the past few seasons because fashion has become so democratized. I think the same is true of decorating-- all the 2013 trend reports say different things! I think that's great, there's something for everyone.
Here's what I've seen and liked:
Pantone says this is the color of the year. I'm still loving 2012's color, too.

I'm intrigued by this one. The trend is a sort of painterly take on camo, much softer than the army variety.

This trend is in full swing and I'm glad it's projected to stick around! Both sleek, shiny brass and antiqued brass with a nice patina are very "in."

18th Century French style is my favorite--Louis XVI, if you're curious.

Calm, but with spice.
