Home Decor Trends of 2022
Scroll down to take a look at our predicted interior design trends 2022. From aesthetically pleasing styles to trends that have a huge impact on our lives, this guide will give you the run down on what to look out for in 2022.
Go Au Natural
It has been doing the interior rounds for the last few years, and shows no sign of stopping, making the ‘natural’ look a trend of the decade, one that embraces all the benefits of the ‘outdoors’. Think big windows, reclaimed wood throughout and greenery. Natural stone paired with an earthy colour palette made up of muted green and brown creates a calm, relaxing world that you can rest and unwind in.
These past couple of years have forced us to turn our homes into workplaces and classrooms. Dining tables have been used as desks as well as for family gatherings, making extendable dining tables a very popular table choice, because of its multifunctionality.
An extendable table like the Padstow can be small enough to be a desk, leaving space in the rest of your dining setup for children to take part in classroom zoom calls on beanbags. The table can then be extended to host the whole family when it is time for dinner. Additional stools are also great functional pieces that can be hidden underneath counters and tables to create space but can be pulled out when guests come to visit.
Find Furniture that Tells a Story
Vintage furniture is literally timeless, and it doesn’t just have to be for old Victorian houses with trinkets in all corners, vintage pieces can be intertwined into just about any interior. If there is a vintage piece you love, but are not quite sure it suits your style, don’t be afraid to play with it. Adding your own unique stamp, whether that be painting the dining chairs or reupholstering the sofa, it will add to its history, making it even more desirable.
Many more people are turning to vintage simply because they cannot get access to the brand new, with production and shipping issues still affecting lead times of reproduction stock, with no signs of slowing down. it has created a spike in consumers shopping for second-hand items that are cheaper, with a little character.
Savvy shoppers are not only searching for second hand vintage pieces, they are thinking about how they can reduce their carbon footprint, how they can reduce waste and support their local businesses. This is why we specialise in reclaimed furniture, dining chairs that are made in the UK, and use recyclable materials where we can. Having a sustainable future is influencing our thought process and the way we buy things, which is why its so important for 2022.
Create a Zen Space
Your living room is the place where you can sit back and relax after a hard day at work. If you are working from home, it can be the space that separates your work and home life, it should be light, bright, and soothing. Soft furnishings, candles and comfortable seating are the main ingredients to a stress-free, zen space. Plants are also known to boost positivity, but as long as your zen-space makes you feel cool, calm and collected – that’s all that matters!
Taking one of the biggest trends and infusing it with newer, fresher interior styles, Japandi is a combination of Scandinavian and modern Japanese design. A little bit au natural, with nods to wooden accents, alongside quirkier curves and lines paired with sharp edges. The new boho, Japandi is already a sensational Instagram trend and is set to make waves in 2022.
Get in Touch with your Senses
Texture is set to become one of the most popular home design trends 2022. Combine all the material trends of the past year or so, boucle, velvet, chenille, rattan and layer them. Go for boucle cushions on velvet sofas or layer the different textures through your rugs and throws. This will make your room feel warm and cosy but will also add a level of mystery to your space.
Although these trends are set to take over the interior scene in 2022, trends aren’t for everyone. Perhaps the biggest trend of 2022 should be to go with your gut. Your home is meant to make you feel good, and be a space that you can enjoy, so don’t be afraid to take risks and don’t let a ‘trend’ get in the way of making your space your own.
