Here are some of our favorite new home décor trends for 2013. Learn how to use them to your advantage in your home!

2013 is here! Is there a better way to celebrate the New Year than by giving your room a new look? From new window treatments to multipurpose spaces, here are 5 of the new trends for the New Year that we love!

  • Mix it up and have fun!

This might not be so much of a trend, as it is a philosophy! However, this year, the idea is to tackle any new home decorating project with a sense of youthfulness and chic sensibility. It doesn’t matter what your age is. Imbue your master bedroom with a sense of youth by pairing apple green and girly pink accessories.

  • Monochromatic Color Schemes

This year, homeowners are clamoring for master bedrooms that are calm and serene like in their ambiance, similar to the type of environment you would find in a spa. Designers are achieving this desired effect through monochromatic color schemes. The key to successfully decorating with the color scheme is to use a variety of different hues of the same color to provide the space with visual depth. A variety of textures should be used for window treatments, bedding, and accessories to add visual interest to the room.

  • Multipurpose Spaces

In increasing numbers, homeowners are choosing to turn their master bedrooms into multipurpose work spaces. The current trend is seeing the master bedroom become a “home within a home”. For example, en-suite offices are being added to many master bedrooms.

  • Master Suite Conveniences

Along the same vein, convenient features are becoming the must have accessory for master bedrooms in 2013. For example, it would not be uncommon to see a coffee bar in a master bedroom today, complete with an espresso machine and mini fridge. Such amenities infuse a master bedroom with a sense of hotel style luxury. Washers and dryers are also being moved, with increasing frequency, into master suites. This provides the homeowner with the convenience of doing laundry at any time of the day.

  • Custom Headboards and Bedding

Finally, we have reached the last of our top 5 trends: custom headboards and bedding. Many homeowners are not aware that having a custom headboard created is often cheaper than purchasing one that is ready made. High end fabrics can be interspersed throughout the design of the bedding for an expensive look without the exorbitant prices. This year, it is all about successfully blending the high end with the low end for a one of a kind look.
