The easiest way to update your yard or patio for 2013 is with a hanging basket chair. It is the most expensive type of seating but it’s alsp a lot of fun. My family always fights over the cheap rope swing hammock chairs. Everyoen loves them, but it doesn’t match all decor styles. Most of these are for outdoor spaces and some of them come with stands while the others of them don’t.

This is a very mod look so it’s perfect if your patio doesn’t have any personality. If you live in an apartment you may not be able to change the outside space. The little extra you spend on furniture makes your space unique. Usually you will find this in wicker or rattan and you can match it with more traditional furniture.

If you want to freshen up your living room for 2013 then try a chevron accent chair. This doesn’t need to be fine furniture. This is a bold pattern and it’s available in a lot of daring colors like yellow. It’s going to become dated so don’t base your room around it and don’t spend a lot of money on it. Amazon.com always has some of the cheapest options.

How to Decorate with a Chevron Print
Try a fun and modern color. Turquoise and pink are great for this style. Most of the time this will have a white zig zag effect. If you have a neutral room, or you own a lot of contemporary furniture from IKEA, then this is the way to go.
Find a southwest inspiration. The #4 Avery chair is one of the only traditional chairs I have seen in this style. It uses almost an Ikat inspired feel and the legs and arms are much more traditional than other pieces. If you have a terra cotta color sofa that used to be popular in the Tuscan style this is a way to freshen up your room without getting rid of it.
My favorite color is actually gray for this use because it’s really trendy but it will be somewhat neutral. You could change out the bolster pillow for a bright turquoise and it would even be fun if it was a chevron style too.
Notice that most of these chairs are armless slipper chairs. There is a modified wingback. I like smaller seating and occasional chairs so this pattern doesn’t overwhelm the room but it also means it’s a lot cheaper.
Go retro. If you like the 70s then go with a more irregular zig zag pattern in muted tones like #5.
If your room feels dull it won’t be any more with the addition of one of these pieces.

The biggest color trend this year can be a fun way to decorate your nursery. It makes a big impact and it’s modern. Gray and yellow crib bedding can even be gender neutral so you can start decorating sooner or use the same crib set for several different kids. Here are my favorite patterns:

Tip#1 Pair it with white. You can skip the traditional pink and blue color schemes. Use this with white walls so you don’t even have to paint. This is also perfect for renters.
Tip#2 Go with a modern theme. All of the themes in this roundup are pretty contemporary except for the animal one. For a really soothing room paint the walls a pale gray.
Tip#3 Use other trends for 2013. Try a chevron or a zig zag pattern. These sets can work for a boy or a girl.

Pink ruffle shower curtains are the ultimate in girly trends. It would be pretty in a shabby chic bathroom or a kids’ bathroom. Amazon.com usually has these styles cheaper than most other places but you will have to sacrifice on the style a little bit.

Buying This for Less
You save a lot of money over buying at Anthropologie but you don’t get the typical waterfall style that you would usually see.
The hot pink design in #3 uses more of a petal look instead of actual ruffles and it’s my favorite for teenagers. #1 is an example of a waterfall curtain. #2 is more of a micro design but it also includes a trellis pattern which is another cute shower curtain trend for 2013.

When I think of cute I think of the world girly. I love the new trends of cute shower curtains instead of the more modern fabric designs which have been popular for the last few years. You can even work this into a more sophisticated master bathroom or guest bathroom. I recently bought a sequin curtain for myself and I love it. Here are some of my other top picks and they are quite affordable too when shopping at Amazon.com.
Ruffled Shower Curtains
This is perfect for neutral baths and if you shop at Amazon.com instead of a place like Urban Outfitters you can get it a lot cheaper. It’s the most sophisticated style that can also work in a master bathroom or a kids’ bath. If you share a bath and it can’t be too girly then consider this direction.

Girly Shower Curtain Hooks
You may have a smaller bathroom wher eyou don’t want to use a lot of texture or color. you may share a bathroom and don’t want to go too over the top. If you do go all out for a girly shower curtain you will want to pay attention to all of the details. In any of these cases don’t forget the right shower curtain hooks! This can add a lot of sparkle or even be in a cute rose shape. I’ve found though that the chrome s hook styles can make a lot of noise when opening and closing and even get tangled. It does look great though!
