As we wrap up 2021 which was filled with bold colour schemes and the incorporation of organic materials, the interior trends of 2022 are equally embracing of nature and deliver a feel of rejuvenation and relaxation. Since most of us are spending more and more time indoors, it’s more important than ever to inject a sense of wellbeing into our surroundings. So, let’s have a look at these 5 exciting interior design trends that are grabbing attention and will be making headlines this coming year!
Green is the New Black
Whether it’s the kitchen cabinets, home offices, a bedroom feature wall, or exterior shiplap - the subtle greens are making a delightful statement in the homes. Well, green is simply beyond aesthetics - since this colour is also associated with a tranquilising and serene vibe.
This year’s trends bring a major focus on calming environments and introducing homeowners to the world of biophilic design. And not just visually connecting the space with nature but also focusing on lighting as well as ventilation.
It’s true that iconic pieces of furniture are trendy and cool - but at the same time, there’s nothing better than incorporating a multi-functional piece of furniture. Let’s talk realistically! Wouldn’t you like a sofa that could be converted to a daybed and even a sofa bed at night? Well, yes! Practicality and simplicity are what the interior design trends of 2022 are all about!
Also, nesting coffee tables with ample storage are back in fashion. You can style them however you like - while also defining their purpose for multiple uses.
This year brings about a deeper awareness and understanding of your space with respect to emotions and well-being. It’s all about reflecting your style and personality while creating a space that nurtures your passions, hobbies, and interests. Yes, your ideal space should truly cater to your needs and requirements and be a representation of who you are.
This trend also relates to colour schemes, spatial planning, interior customisation and modelling, and wall finishes. Thoughtful spaces can also be associated with customisation in planning and use of your favourite elements like plants, materials, and finishes. Want to have a home office space that’s not boring and boxed? Well, why not have a view of nature, instead?
Curves and wavy forms have a feeling of warmth, softness, and a refreshing sense of presence. From choosing round coffee tables and side tables to picking couches with soft edges - these furnishings have a major call in the year 2022.
Furthermore, this year also throws major light upon arched and semi-arched edges.
Generally, the curves tend to create a welcoming and cosy vibe. And since more and more homeowners are drawn towards working from home, this is one of the best ways to style in 2022!
Colourful Window Treatments
In 2022, the interior design industry is going to see plenty of patterns and intriguing colours. And especially for the window treatments, you can be as creative and as vibrant as you want. Generally, these window treatments serve as the jewellery of a room - and that’s why you can spice things up with a colour or two and florals or geometric patterns to help your space feel full of life and personality.
Summing Up 2022
With the coming new year, it’s time to feel energetic, refreshed, and rejuvenated - yes, just like Pantone’s Colour of the Year 2022: Pantone 17-3938 Very Peri. It’s a beautiful shade of lavender that juxtaposes the previous years’ trends. Mesmerising, no?
