If you're always looking for the latest window treatment furnishings and wall decor, there are plenty of trends to take advantage of as you create a fresh look in your living spaces. Each year, many new styles emerge and take the American interior design world by storm. Whether you give your rooms a different look every season or you do so infrequently, there are several trends worth noting this year as you begin your adventures in decorating. Here are some of the most popular thus far being seen in homes across the country.

Bold colors
Gone are the days where window shades, wallpaper and furniture were meant to be subtle in neutral hues. House Beautiful magazine states that bold colors are trending in American design, and this style is right up your alley if you want to add flair to your living spaces. Think fire engine red, cobalt blue and forest green to make an impact in your rooms. While it may take some getting used to, color can do wonders from a drab area of your home.

Stylized features
While clean, minimalist modern decor is still trendy, For Your Home claims that more designers are leaning toward stylized furnishings to create an intriguing interior. Furniture that has curves and fine detailing is becoming all the rage as homeowners try to avoid being too bland in their living spaces. If you've been keeping the antique cabinet from your great aunt in the basement, now is the time to bring it up and show off its beauty!

Specifically, the Pantone color institute has named emerald green is the hue of the year, according to the Huffington Post. Now, it's showing up in everything from wallpaper to arm chairs, and this color isn't going away any time soon. If you want to encompass all that is American design in your home in 2013, opt for emerald green when you select new furnishings for your living spaces. Even if you aren't a "green" person, you may come to love the soothing, eye-pleasing qualities of it over time.

Many people wish that they could have the picture perfect American home, but it can be a lot of work to get rooms to look flawless as they do in magazines. By taking upcoming trends into account, you can increase your chances of creating a beautiful look that pleases the eye.
