Home Decorating Series

Posted by at 2:56 PM

Brass, grass cloth, and camouflage are just a few of the home decor obsessions that designers can't get enough of as we head into 2013.


"Lamps have become a fashion accessory for the home, the jewelry of a room," Beth Connolly of Chinoiserie Chic says. "I adore gourd-shaped lamps in rooms with chinoiserie elements. Designers seem to favor the solid colors, although blue and white Chinese designs add a class element."


"All of a sudden it's everywhere!" Judi Roaman of the Accessorator says. "Camouflage has invaded my head and my 'hood! As an 'accessorator supreme,' all this intense camouflage imagery can only mean one thing: a trend hiding in plain sight!"


"Not all light is created equal," Lisa Borgnes Giramonti of A Bloomsbury Life says. "What is it about filtered light that changes absolutely everything? It gives a room atmosphere. It alters the way you feel. It speaks volumes, quietly. Filtered light can make even inanimate objects appear invested with emotion."
