Top 100 Lifestyle Trends in 2013

From Suspended Spherical Hotels to Cardboard Homeless Shelters

— January 3, 2014 — Lifestyle
For deep insight into life trends, be sure to take a look at Trend Hunter's 72-page Life Trend Report. It provides great insight into better understanding consumers and their shifting lifestyle choices.

Trend Hunter has covered many life ideas over the course of 2013. In the realm of romance, we've seen many art series covering expressions of love and very unique engagement shoots that are anything but typical. Romance is also spilling into home decor, as many things such as home accessories and bedding are being geared specifically towards couples.

Motivational typography is also an idea we've seen time and time again over the course of 2013, embodied in wall decals, posters and home decor. It seems the quest for happiness is something that is perpetual.
