It’s a new year and a new round of design is hitting the scene. 2013 is poised to bring some truly, um…interesting design trends to market. Of course, good design starts with a great canvas and Shea Apartment Living’s homes are designed with you in mind.  Here’s what predicted to be hot this year:

Brass – Yes you read that right. Brass is making a comeback. It jazzes up any dull space and makes a statement, just go easy with brass -- the right amount conveys a look, too much conveys a nightmare.

Organic Modern – You might see this pop up more in kitchens than anything else as designers move away from ultra-modern (European) and into the homey-modern look. The jury is still out on this one but what we have seen looks great. A fusion of country kitchen and modern design is predicted to be hot in 2013.

Gloss – Ultra lacquer and high shine will pop up in unexpected places. We’re thinking a cool high-gloss white wall could really make a statement in your apartment, just sayin’!

Art – Well, this one is nothing new, but believe it or not, the acquision of retail art has been on the decline for a while as people focus more on design and accessories.  Art buying is expected to increase in 2013 as art becomes more prominent in professional decorating. How cultured!

So there you have it, four things to watch for in 2013. Be sure to follow us on Pinterest where we’ll post more visuals for you to check out and get Pinspired!
