Hot Trends in Holiday

Take a peek at what’s in store for Home & Holiday 2013.

It really is the most wonderful time of the year! The holiday season is in full swing, which we of course love, but we also love this time of year because we’re getting our first peek at the newest trends for the year ahead. Yes, it’s already time to start thinking about Holiday 2013!

Want to know more? We thought so. Direct from our very own trend expert, Joey Porwoll of Joey Studio Inc., here’s your sneak peek at our favorite trends for Home & Holiday 2013. Enjoy!

Garnet — Rich in style and color, Garnet crowns the season in modern elegance. This trend showcases two trend-right colors for 2013: a rich, dark Chianti garnet and a pale lichen green. Expect to see the color combination paired with snow, ice and frosted glitter finishes for a fresh look. It also works well alongside tonal patterns, faded floral and metallic prints for a more nostalgic, well-worn comfort that’s perfect for the winter season.

Enchantment — Nature’s elements will meet high fashion for this enchanted trend of fantasy-inspired garden design. Showcasing a much darker palette reminiscent of a deep nocturnal forest, black will play a key role, as will plum and raisin red. For holiday, a light dusting of snow and frost will create a magical feel, while watercolor effects and printed floral on black backgrounds create the high-fashion feel.

Golden Birch — Urban melds with nature for this contemporary, upscale style. Birch textures in combination with golden and bronze finishes will dress up familiar holiday favorites. Owls will continue to be strong and will be front and center in this collection.  We’re also forecasting that concrete gray and ochre will be other strong colors, adding a fashion twist and an urban vibe. Patterns like chevron and branch prints will continue to be strong as part of this trend.

Cinnamon Peace — Spice up the season with the fashion-inspired color story of cinnamon and peach with silver and gray. Another trend-right color right now, gray pairs well with so many colors. It is the newest modern neutral color, and blush and sheer accents add a delicacy that’s perfect for the season. Expect to also see both paisley and baroque scrolling as part of this trend.

Snow Bright — In a blizzard of white, Snow Bright offers pops of amazing color. Nearly neons paired with bright whites add fun and freshness to this holiday favorite. Expect to see a cast of whimsical characters — snowmen, penguins and polar bears — all in bright colors as well. Sequins will add the sparkle and dazzle.
