Despite not being big fans of interior design trends, some design changes and new shifts still spark inspiration to transform and redesign our spaces. Designs and decorations with organic materials like terra cotta travertine, and plaster, mimicing the natural environment, will continue to be popular in home interiors in 2022. As we increasingly spend more time indoors, we are looking to connect with Mother Nature and heal from within.
Here are some of the latest trends for 2022:
1) Roses Blooming
In 2022, neutrals will recede a bit as people experiment with color again, but the palette will remain very close to the tones found in nature. Expect monochromatic moments as paint rollers in shades of pink and terracotta envelop the room from wall to ceiling, enclosing it in their intimacy. Velvet furnishings in the same tones will make the space more comfortable and tranquil. Who wouldn’t want to design a room that feels like a warm embrace?
From a design perspective, vintage is the star of a room and has the power to influence its narrative and direction. Its patina brings tactile texture and warmth to a space. These rare antiques are not only decorative in their own right, but they are also elegantly sustainable. Repurposing old, damaged, and jagged pieces into new ones reduces the footprint while at the same time bringing a rich history and spirit to the space. The appeal of vintage will continue to evolve in 2022 as people continue to learn about the history of design and the great furniture and architects of the past.
Besides, due to supply chain shortages and environmental concerns, sourcing vintage is an essential issue in today’s design world. Not to mention finding unique details that are not always present in today’s new designs!
3) Period Mix
Interiors are also seeing an elegant mash-up of eras. High-end designers increasingly tell stories in their work’s style and source material to convey sophisticated concepts to a broader audience. Like in fashion, more and more people are incorporating various design genres to express themselves and create their unique aesthetic, and we love it!
4) Neutrals Are Still Here
You can maintain neutral colours and incorporate patterns and textures inspired by nature, even with the advent of bold colours and prints. Since we are now spending more time indoors, we seek out the calming qualities of the outdoors. We’ll see a lot more neutral tones with exciting patterns and great textures to add visual interest. There will also be more natural materials with metallic accents to create a luxurious feel. Stone, beautiful wood and rattan are great examples of this. Textured, neutral colors embody the calming and essential qualities that make a house feel more like a home!
5) Masculine Art Deco
A shift towards silver metals such as stainless steel, tin, aluminium and nickel is also taking place. Warm woods and rich chocolate browns are employed for upholstery and wall colour.
6) New Organic
Now that we spend more time indoors than ever before, we all want to connect more with nature. At the same time, there has been a renaissance of natural materials such as stoneware, terra cotta, marble, and travertine, used in everything from wall tiles to bathtubs, furniture, and decorative pieces. The rawness, porosity, and imperfections of these organic materials mimic the ambiance of the natural environment while adding depth, soul, and visual.
