TOP INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS OF 2022
"A room should never allow the eye to settle in one place. It should smile at you and create fantasy." – Juan Montoya
With the onset of the pandemic, our homes have become the main setting of our lives, for working, sleeping as well as socializing. Home, being our centre of existence, speak of who we are. And if you are someone looking to make the much-needed changes to the interiors of your house, we are right here to help you. We bring to you a list of interior design trends which are here to stay in 2022. While the classic designs are clearly making a comeback, we also have some newbies which have made their way to this list. So, let’s get started!
1. WARM NEUTRALS
Steely greys, Crisp Whites and cool neutrals are here to stay. These are cult favourites that give a clean, contemporary aesthetic. However, people are now getting inclined towards the warmer palettes and shades like nude, creams and beiges make a subtle comeback. You can expect to see these soothing neutrals—along with richer, earthier hues like taupe, camel, and rust—applied to walls, upholstery, and other furniture to create a warm, welcoming environment. In addition to these more traditional hues, there are a variety of other options. Additionally, blush shade will emerge as a go-to neutral shade. Furthermore, neutral-colored minimalist furniture makes it much easier to customize the space. To retain the room's mood, we propose using earthy tones and materials such as jute or rattan. Such a setting could be a perfect interior design for folks who want to get away from the concrete jungle outside their front doors.
2. MAKE WAY FOR WFH SPACES
If there's one thing the last several years have taught us, it's that we need dedicated workstations at home. And these aren't just a few cubicles with a desk and chair. Indeed, as the number of individuals working from home grows, your home will need to accommodate all of your belongings, including your job. However, the interior design business is responding to these shifts in innovative ways. A dedicated workspace is just as crucial as having a modest reading nook or recreational space in the house. Furthermore, this room can be shared by multiple family members. With this in mind, make sure these areas are neutrally coloured and sparsely furnished to create an office environment that everyone can appreciate. The same can be true about children's employment environments. Indeed, youngsters require a specific location in which to complete their homework and express their creativity. Keep these rooms well-ventilated as well, as fresh air and a view may be very relaxing.
3. MIXING CLASSICS AND VINTAGE
People are increasingly mixing antiques and old pieces with more modern designs rather than buying all new furniture. Antiques and vintage-inspired decor and furniture are not only environmentally conscious because they are repurposed things, but they also allow for a juxtaposition of old and modern in a room.
4. GREENS ARE HERE TO STAY
In 2022, green homes are projected to experience a rebound unlike any other. Greenery will be a popular top interior decor trend this year, from using it as a focal point in the living room to creating a lush green area in your bedroom or even displaying a few small plants in your bathroom. Plants give one's living area a distinct personality and sense of individuality. They will complement your home's natural woods and warm browns in addition to cleansing the air.
5. CURVY FURNITURE
Curvy furniture is one of our favourite trends, and it's also one of the easiest to implement. While traditional furniture can still be used in today's world, there are many modern pieces with finely carved curves. Curvy furniture items, on the other hand, are not only beautiful to look at but also appear to give the illusion of extra space in the room. Most curvaceous furniture has a modern twist to it, making it better suited for contemporary environments. If you want to improve your living room, opt for sofas with curved backs or rounded armrests. For a more permanent aspect in the home, consider a kitchen island counter with rounded edges or curved mirror edges.
Gone are the days of using only one type of fabric for everything. Velvet is at the top of the list for many homeowners who are looking for more regal-looking furniture pieces. The fabric is fairly fluffy and aesthetically beautiful, which is one of the reasons behind this.
Velvets are also available in a variety of strong and neutral colours, allowing them to be used in a variety of settings. If you have a room with a lot of warm tones and a neutral colour scheme, a statement velvet couch can add a touch of originality. A strong coloured space and neutral velvets, on the other hand, can invert the same colour scheme.
With that, we've completed our take on the most popular interior design trends for 2022. We hope that every homeowner wishing to update their living space in 2022 found this post to be both helpful and eye-opening. In the coming years, many more trends will emerge, and our only suggestion is to remain courageous. Your home is your space, which gives you a lot of leeway in terms of what you may do with it. Bolder colours, that inexplicable statue for the living room, or getting rid of everything and living a serene life are all options.
