Happiest 2013 to y’all. I thought I’d kick off a new year of Klooftique blogging with some of the year’s up and coming decor trends. Timeless and beautiful, the following key looks are amongst my all-time favourites and I hope that you’ll be as inspired as I am to incorporate a few of these ideas into your own home…
I recently blogged about Pantone’s 2013 Colour of the Year, and am still so excited about this hue and all its possibilities. It’s a strong colour, make no mistake, but it’s amazing paired with cool white and pops of brights and I’m especially fond of an accent wall splashed in this lush, cool tone.
Green, white and brights.
That ballsy combo again...
See how well it works as an accent colour?
Large floral patterns
Clean lines and muted tones a-la-Scandi style may be my first love, but I am very fond of fabulous, colourful floral prints and am currently fantasising about a chair or drapes in a classic Colefax and Fowler print. Or perhaps a statement wall papered in vibrant blooms?
Coveting right now....
I think florals work best teamed with white and one strong accent colour pulled from the print.
This rich floral perks up the otherwise earthy tones. Love it.
This is such a great trend and happily, I think it’s here to stay. Repurposing is obviously huge and will remain so as we ease out of our ‘throw away’ mindset and it’s certainly a look that’s accessible to all – anyone can go on a salvaging mission or renew what they already have. All it takes is patience, perseverance and a basic knowledge of DIY (or access to a DIY expert!).
My love for wooden pallets and their many uses is eternal.
White flooring is mandatory with this look.
Great style doesn't need to cost an arm and a leg.
3-Dimensional wall tiles
This is something I’ve seen popping up a lot recently. Modern and versatile, 3-dimensional tiles give a certain depth to a room to create a fabulous living space.

I like this application of the trend. Playful and fun.
