The new year brings many things: resolutions, transitions, new beginnings, and of course, new trends. Here are ten top interior designers' predictions on what will be hot in the new year. These trends include saving money by purchasing antique furniture, "sophisticated man caves," complete with media rooms, wine rooms, and teriyaki grill islands, and elegant, graceful fabrics. Read more about what's in store for 2013!

Brass

"I'm crushing on brass! I love how it revs up any space. It's timeless and affordable. What's not to like?" —Melissa Rufty


Elegant, Graceful Design

"Enough with the plain. I think people want pretty, and I predict a surge in demand for classic fabrics like Colefax and Fowler's Bowood." — Leta Austin Foster


Homey Kitchens

"We're moving toward a more organic modernism with warm, modern materials that look vintage: slate, irregular floors, weathered concrete, natural crackle-glazed tiles that look handmade. Less slick kitchens!" — Peter Dunham


Computer-Generated Fabrics

"On runways, fashion designers have been showing computer-generated photorealist fabrics. Believe me, we'll soon be seeing those kinds of fabrics in living rooms." — Tom Scheerer


Gloss

"Gloss! High gloss! Shine! Polish! Lacquer!" — Jeffrey Bilhuber


James Mont Furniture

I'm wild for everything James Mont. Designers know about him, but this may be the year that everyone else gets to know his over-the-top, theatrical furniture." — Meg Braff


Emphasis on Art

"Everyone will be focusing on art — it's so much more approachable these days, with art fairs popping up everywhere." — Sara Story


Bright Paint Colors

"Photoshop, HDTV, and hi-res computer screens have dialed up our sense of vision. Our rooms will be full of brighter, more saturated hues. I just used Life Savers candy colors on a project and plan on using them more." — Stephen Shubel


Sophisticated Man Caves

"Husbands who work at home are getting more involved in the decor, so we're going to see more upscale man caves, media rooms full of gadgets, outrageous wine rooms, wood-burning pizza ovens, and islands dedicated to teriyaki grills. Right now I'm working on an indoor golf simulator." — Paul Sherrill


Antique Furniture

"I hope people start looking at period furniture again — beautiful old pieces to mix with modern ones. Why pay $12,000 for a new chest of drawers when you can buy a gorgeous handmade faded mahogany thing at auction for $1,200?" — Bunny Williams
