JOEY’S TOP 13 DESIGN TRENDS of 2013! #5:

TEXTURED WALL PANELS These types of wall panels have been most commonly seen in commercial enviroments like hotel lobbys, nightclubs and day spas but 2013 shows a big trend toward accenting these in the home! These textured wall panels are made from an entirely green (recycled natural) material, can be painted any color you want and some even have acoustical value (ie. MEDIA ROOMS, HOME THEATERS)! I’m not recommending you cover your walls with this look, but I do think it has high impact for focal walls of importance, such as in the entry hall, powder/guest bath room, fireplace wall, Master Bed Wall. For smaller applications I think this will be on trend for backsplashes, Closet walls (Ie. Closet Doors, camouflaging the doors in a seamless apllication with the wall), or even as a tub surround in the master bath! Left white and grazed with colored lighting, you can change your walls with the color of your mood! Your eyes do not decieve you in that last photo, there is recessed lighting INSIDE the wall to help accent the texture and make a WOW statement!

Precious Stone! Stones like, Blue Agate, Agastone, Angel Jasper & Malachite. Of course we’ve been using stone in our interiors since….well, the Stone Age but I’m pretty sure unless you were a King or Pharaoh I doubt they looked like this! We all know that stone makes a beautiful counter surface but with these beauties, they can be lit from within and because they’re translucent they GLOW! Precious Stone is being used for entire wall installations, artwork, and even for furniture! Here’s some examples of how precious stones are being integrated into the interior for 2013!
