If you want your home to be modern and always decorated according to the newest trends, then you should pay attention to what the specialists are predicting for the upcoming year. According to the Pantone View home + interiors 2013 book there are nine color palettes that will dominate the trends in 2013. Let’s take a look at each one of them.

The first palette is called Connoisseur and includes a series of cool neutrals in combination with warm tones. Some examples would be white, beechnut green, violet, orchid, liquid pink and deep mahogany. Of course, there are also some intermediate tones such as champagne beige and silver.

The second one is the Glamour palette and has an art décor feel. It includes colors such as Rio red, Monaco blue, tap shoe black, chinchilla, ethereal gray or jasper teal. It’s a very nicely balanced combination.

The New Old School palette is very similar to the Glamour palette, the only difference being that here we have more saturated versions of the same colors. We can distinguish colors such as ribbon re, bright white, nautical blue or ultramarine green.
