People have spent an extended amount of time inside their homes for the past two years, and it has helped them rethink their spaces. Sterile, minimalist design is a thing of the past as people look to create spaces that feel softer, and more like a warm hug than a hospital lobby. There are some specific interior design trends emerging to achieve more comfortable interior spaces in 2022.
The days of boxy couches and rectangular coffee tables are gone. The trend is leaning heavily on curved, sculptural furniture options that feel soft and inviting while adding a level of intrigue to the room. As an added bonus, fewer corners means fewer bruised knees.
People are understandably missing a connection to nature. This has created a trend toward natural materials and nature-inspired objects in interior design. Materials like wood, marble, terracotta, and clay are major contenders right now as a means to bring nature into the home.
A popular option right now is using 3D art to create a textured and changeable look on a blank wall. Another trend is mixing textured textiles to keep a room from looking flat. Textiles such as jute, velvet, and mohair are being added to interior spaces this year.
Neutrals are out, and this year it will be all about earth tones coupled with bold colors and patterns. With people spending so much time in their homes, a sterile look has become cold and uninviting. The hues of nature mixed with bright, bold colors are key to an interesting space that’s fun to be in and feels warm.
The interest in nature extends beyond utilizing natural materials. Opting for sustainable materials is an important part of the current interior design process. Beyond renewable resources, sustainability is also being achieved by adding vintage pieces rather than going for all-new options. Giving old objects new life adds to the space while being eco-conscious.
