2022 INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS

Whether you find yourself venturing our more in 2022, or continuing to hunker down – one thing is for sure, you’ll still be spending a reasonable amount at home. As we continue to consider our homes our sanctuary, we will once again find ourselves rethinking how we can live, work and play in the same space.

If 2022 is the year for re-igniting your passion for your home, you’ll need some inspiration. These design trends for the year ahead are all designer approved, with a focus on creating timeless and sustainable design choices.

 

HELLO COLOUR!

It’s said that the return of colour is a sign of optimism and positivity for the future. The idea that bringing colour into our homes will literally brighten up our lives.

While we know there is always a space in our heart for white walls, expect to see combinations of saturated hues and bold, statement making pops of colour working their ways into all areas of the home.

This is especially going to be true for kitchens, which no longer focus on neutral shades, or blues and greens. The love of colour can be seen in two tone kitchens with colourful splashbacks and countertops. Even kitchen appliances are now available in a broader range of colour palettes,

The use of colour will extend through to patterns and prints in the home, and you’ll notice that patterned sofas are going to crop up on your feed more and more.  Whether applied in wall coverings or fabrics choices, you can expect to see a growing confidence with patterns and prints throughout 2022.

TEXTURED WALL TREATMENTS

Anything that adds a layer of cosiness to your home, that feels soft and luxurious, and seemingly increases your connection to nature,  is a welcome addition to your home in 2022.

This is particularly seen with textured wall treatments, be it a stone backsplash or hand-trowelled plaster finish, where the layering process add even more depth and warmth to a space.

REPURPOSE AND UPCYCLE

As well as being mindful of the planet, people are being mindful of their budget. Times have been tough and as a result there is a resurgence in homeowners taking on DIY projects.

As part of this low waste living approach (and the disruption to supply chains), the use of second-hand, vintage and up cycled pieces plays a large part in design in the coming years.

Architects and designers continue to discover exciting new and also stylish ways to incorporate sustainability into our living spaces, while homeowners are putting their personal stamp on up-cycled pieces, including the use of colourful prints and patterns.

MULTIFUNCTIONAL SPACES

We’ve all had some time over the last couple of years where dining rooms doubled as classrooms and home offices, and bedrooms turned into meeting rooms. As we move forward and our homes continue to demand more from us, so do the requests for multifunctional spaces the satisfy many needs.

Where we’ve previously see the call for walls being knocked down and open plan living, we are now seeing sections of rooms, or entire spaces, being converted to dedicated work areas and homework nooks. Thoughtful consideration has to be given to how these spaces can be zoned off without disrupting the flow and look of your home, and to ensure they cohesively work alongside your current decor and style.

The same mentality applies to furniture pieces, where clients look for options that are easily adaptable and have multiple functions.

THE REVIVAL OF DARK WOOD TONES

There has been a noticeable shift towards darker wood tones, especially in kitchens, bringing an instantly luxurious feeling to a setting. While we’ve seen plenty of blonde wood over the Scandinavian-inspired years, this can change be linked with a desire for more colour and materiality, where the pairing of the two provide a very dramatic look.

GREEN IS HERE TO STAY

It does seem as though green, as a colour,  is here to stay. In 2022 you can expect to see varying shades, from mint to heritage to olive, as well as new and improved applications.

As the desire for a connection to nature continues to grow, green bathrooms and green homes exteriors are expected to be some of the biggest rising trends.
