What I Want Now1 of 10
By Elizabeth Jenkins
For many people, January means eating healthier and getting back to the gym. For these top interior designers, however, the start of 2013 is all about getting a head start on spotting the hottest home trends. Take a look to see what these nine pros are craving for the year ahead.
Heavy Metal2 of 10
Designer: Martyn Lawrence-Bullard, Los Angeles
In his crystal ball: "For me, 2013 is all about brass," says Lawrence-Bullard, of Million Dollar Decorators. "I love the rich, warm tones. Gone are the undertones of dated '80s glam, now replaced with a chic, modern interpretation in everything from kitchen taps to bed frames!"
Feeling inspired? Restoration Hardware has a cornucopia of products, including lamps, tables and accessories, in this year's hottest new metal.
Going Global3 of 10
Designer: Jan Showers, Dallas, Texas
In her crystal ball: Showers is taking her inspiration from late-'40s and early-'50s Italian furniture found during her trips abroad. "Paris is my favorite place to shop by far," she says. "I look forward to finding those really special, wow-factor pieces."
Touch Wood4 of 10
Designer: Kishani Perera, Los Angeles
In her crystal ball: "I'm coveting the beautifully detailed, handcrafted wood pieces from all eras," says Perera. "I've been eyeing several tooled pieces for my shop, Rummage, such as an elaborately carved, ebonized Victorian cabinet, an ultra-feminine French vanity chair and a beautifully chiseled Gothic altar piece."
Feeling Inspired? For less expensive wood pieces with an Asian influence, visit Oriental Furniture.
Papered Over5 of 10
Designer: Kara Mann, Chicago, Illinois
In her crystal ball: "I desperately want to wallpaper my powder room with the new black-and-white jungle scene Equateur wallpaper designed by Robert Dallet for Hermès," says Mann. "I'm really into classically styled wall coverings these days."
Feeling Inspired? Wall decor is no longer limited to just paint and now comes in a bevy of options that up the wow factor.
Quick Changes6 of 10
Designer: Timothy Corrigan, Los Angeles
In his crystal ball: "I love the bedding from the Italian company Dea Luxury Linens which has beautiful details such as diagonal seams and hidden buttons," says Corrigan, who's also planning on making use of coordinated tabletop accessories, and matching drawer pulls and hangers for his closet.
Feeling Inspired? Liz's Antique Hardware is the go-to source for unique, antique and hard-to-find hardware.
Feeling Blue7 of 10
Designer: Betsy Burnham, Los Angeles
In her crystal ball: "I don't ordinarily use blue in my work but I do love the pale robin's egg blue of the Caribbean," says Burnham, who's looking to use the color in an unexpected way this year: "Maybe paint a bookcase, a dresser, kitchen cabinets, or even shutters or a front door. I love the idea of brass hardware used with this color; it feels very old-school and European."
Feeling Inspired? Maine Cottage Furniture has brightly painted furniture in shades of blue to help bring that Caribbean vacation home.
Clear Vision8 of 10
Designer: Laura Casey, Charlotte, North Carolina
In her crystal ball: "I am mostly looking at 20th-century furniture, lighting and art," says Casey, who recommends seeking out pieces in "Lucite, Plexiglass and lighter finishes such as birch and chrome."
Feeling Inspired? Plexi-Craft takes the hunt out of trying to find that vintage Lucite bar you saw ten years ago by offering new furniture and accessories as well as customizable pieces in the coveted clear plastic material.
Bright Idea9 of 10
Designer: Trina Turk, Los Angeles
In her crystal ball: "I'm looking for the perfect vintage bedside table lamp for our guest room," says Turk. "It will sit on an ivory Karl Springer side table doubling as a nightstand, next to a persimmon lacquered headboard, against a backdrop of textural jute-colored drapes." As for the lamp's material? "It might be brass or ceramic. I'll know it when I see it!" says Turk.
Feeling Inspired? 1st Dibs, an online site that sells curated antiques and vintage pieces, can help narrow down what you are looking for.
Handy Work10 of 10
Designer: Nancy Soriano, Larchmont, New York
In her crystal ball: "We will see more handmade mixed into all aspects of our lives: home design, entertaining, gifting, as well as what we eat," says Soriano, the former editor of Country Living. "The mix of modern, vintage, and handcrafted will continue to integrate into design and elevate our home experience."
Feeling Inspired? While Etsy continues to grow, don't forget that many artisans show their wares exclusively at craft fairs. Nationwide arts and craft show listings can be found here.
