The ongoing pandemic has taught us that our homes are so much more than where we lay our heads down at night. They have turned into our offices, schools, gyms, entertaining spaces, and more since 2020. It only makes sense that interiors have changed to accommodate all these new needs in a home. See the predictions for interior design trends for 2022 below.
Warm Tones in Demand
Top interior designers have been hearing requests for warmth, comfort, and a feeling of peace in the last 2 years. This is seen through earthy, warm tones, and soft, comfy furniture. Anything to make us feel at ease in an unpredictable time of history is now trending in home design. With more time spent indoors, natural surfaces – think stoneware, terracotta, marble – are coming back in. Gone are the all-white everything interiors.
A Nod to Nostalgia
Curved furniture is still predicted to be focal pieces in 2022. The softer shapes and angles create warmth and coziness in a home. Textured backgrounds and Venetian plaster are all in demand as well. This brings back memories of historical time but presented in a new, modern way. Along those same lines, repurposed items are still in vogue as we bring the “old” back to life in a new way.
Mixing different styles together has also become popular as people want to bring unique items from their travels into their home. This creates one-of-a-kind rooms that evoke memories and provide stories to tell.
Outdoor Living Spaces
Outdoor living spaces will continue to grow as we spend more time at home. Long gone is the boring outdoor pieces. Outdoor furniture will now become more sophisticated as our interiors will flow naturally outdoors for entertaining our friends and family more at home.
Patterns & Textures
Wallpaper is still trending, but this isn’t the wallpaper of the past. Think bold colors, patterns, geometric shapes. This is an easy way to update your home without a full renovation. As rooms become multi-use, adding wallpaper may be the way to change up the look of the space into something new and exciting.
Don’t be afraid to show your own style.
As we become more conscious of our environment and away from the “buy it and throw it away” consumption, it is the perfect time to buy pieces which you are drawn to to create your style that can last a lifetime – and benefit the environment. If we have learned anything over the last couple of years, it is time to create a style that reflects your personality, creates warmth, and gives you comfort. Let us see your home design trends for 2022 that you have incorporated into your home!
