2013 Trend: Ocean View

Take the plunge into aquatic hues.

It's easy to imagine the beachy blue bench was carved from a slice of Californian surf. Looking like shards of sunlit sea, opalescent tiles invite a wave of freshness indoors, while glinting wallpaper would make a splash in a powder room. Traipse across a deep blue rug and this trend will have you walking on water.
