There are two different types of 3D wallpaper available; the actual textured effect and the ‘trompe l’oeil’ effect which merely gives the impression of being three-dimensional. Textured wallpapers are ideal for walls that are not perfectly straight and allow striking designs to create a real focal point for any room in the house.
Never off the fashion radar for long, animal prints are set to be big in interior design trends in the coming year. Leopard, tiger and zebra prints can add a strikingly contemporary feel to a room, but this very much depends on using them sparingly. Choose one type of print, and keep to accent cushions, curtains or accessories. Be sure to keep the rest of the room understated to avoid a cluttered feel.
Traditionally used to add opulence to a room, gold is set to be very big in 2013. Accessories in gold add a luxurious feel but, once again, be careful not to overdo it or the effect is lost. Gold leaf highlights architectural features on furniture to replicate the antique French-furniture look and adds a polished gleam to a room.
