Below is guest post discussing how rustic and modern design elements can work beautifully together. S Interior Design sometimes refers to this blending of styles as ORGANIC CONTEMPORARY. This mixture can deliver a warm, inviting design outcome. There are a lot of opportunities to create spaces with unique design elements included when you work in this design spectrum.

In a sentence–“Look for a lot of variety and contrast to be popular in 2013.”

Benjamin Moore: Intersection– Flow, Cycle, Animate, Connect
Sherwin Williams: Opposites Attract–Midnight mystery, Honed Vitality, Vintage Moxie, High Voltage
Dunn Edwards: A New Renaissance Influences Palette and Textures–Simply Re-invented, Simply Re-newal, Simply Re-imagined and Simply Re-vival.
Pantone According to the PANTONE VIEW home + interiors 2013 book, there are nine color palettes predicted to dominate interior design and furniture trends in 2013. A mix of muted palettes serve as the new classics while rainbow-inspired colors provoke bolder style statements. Note: From the Casa Sugar Blog
Before you begin your painting, it is always a good idea to try your color choices on several walls in the room. Different walls have different levels of light reflection and the colors will look a bit different in different spaces due to the levels and types of light they will have. We recommend at least a 3′-0″ x 3′-0″ square on the wall. If the wall already has paint color on it, we also recommend priming before putting the new paint color up.
