Looking to give your home a little sprucing up? Tired of looking at the same old same old? Design trends are always shifting, and giving your home a little update can feel invigorating and exciting. With spending most of the last two years in our homes, many of us are looking to give our houses a little facelift of sorts. We want something new and exciting to come home to.
Well, the experts have weighed in and here are some of the best interior design trends that are coming out in 2022.
Neutrals will always be in style, but what particular TYPE of neutral is really “in” changes. In 2022, you can embrace different shades of browns. Think luxurious browns like chocolates and caramels, basically if it makes you think of dessert it’ll look good in your home.
Getting Back To Nature
With everyone spending the past two years stuck inside, we’re wanting to bring the outside in and re-establish that connection with nature in our homes. Nature-inspired organic surfaces and decorations are making their way into our homes.
Embracing The Darkside Of Kitchens
Kitchens have been white and bright for so long, that things are shifting to more stormy and moody tones. You’ll find darker granite, marble, and quartz coming into popularity.
Curvy furniture is here! These softer shapes are more sensual and create a more cozy space. Expect to see less sharp edges and more rounded designs and arcs in furniture.
After years of minimalist designs taking our homes by storm, experts are predicting that the pendulum is going to swing in the other direction and we’ll be finding maximalism as the next hot trend. LAyers of patterns and textures, and things that are bold and exciting are sure to be making their way into your home in 2022.
Sustainably is coming in STRONG. This includes REAL vintage items (rather than pieces that are made to LOOK vintage), repurposed items, and sustainable materials and fabrics.
Quiet Spaces And Privacy Pockets
More than ever we’ve discovered the need for privacy and space to have “me time”. While open-concept has been the trend for so long, people are now noticing the need for SOMETHING that can give them quiet space away from the chaos. Pocket doors are a popular space to create small quiet spaces that can be easily closed off from the rest of the home.
Home needs to feel like a relaxing and rejuvenating retreat. In 2022, people are embracing everything that feels cozy. Think soft textures and things that just LOOK comfortable. Let your home feel like one big hug.
With our homes functioning as both office, daycare, and living quarters over the past couple of years, a trend that is going to continue building through 2022 is dual-purpose rooms and spaces. You’ll find desks in cozy nooks, bookcases in dining rooms, and exercise equipment in bedrooms.
Elevated Outdoor Spaces
The increased desire to create more livable space in the backyard has NOT slowed down. We’re looking at outdoor furniture that feels homier, outdoor kitchens, and more spaces to entertain in the backyard.
