What Does 2022 Have in Store for Design?
Happy New Year! Yet another year has passed by, and we are now welcoming 2022 and all it has to offer. As usual, each year brings in new trends and predictions for design and what we will see more of when improving interiors.
The idea of a multifunctional space is focusing less on how a room looks and more on how a room feels. This trend will be about how to create the most comfortable home that suits your own personal needs. If you live in a smaller home, often you have to think multifunctional, storage may be found in unconventional places that optimise space.
Sustainability in Your Home
Sustainability is a trend we have seen in homes for a few years, and it is further developing due to the growing problem with climate change, therefore we expect to see sustainability take a lead position in design trends in 2022. There are many ways in which you can make a home more sustainable through design as well as practising sustainable and eco-conscious actions at home such as recycling and preserving energy. Find out how to incorporate sustainability into design.
One of the overall themes in the 2022 interior design trends, is nature. Nature brings effortless beauty into our homes in many ways. Furniture and décor made from natural materials is an effective way to create a natural atmosphere and appearance. It is important to choose ethically sourced materials to contribute to sustainability.
During the pandemic, we found ourselves favouring the outdoors and bringing elements of the outdoors into our homes. As we progress into 2022, we expect to see a development in indoor-outdoor in many ways. Indoor-outdoor living does not fall under one design umbrella so there are many ways to achieve the desired results. Find out more.
70’s Designs with a Modern Twist
When the majority of us think of the 1970’s décor we cannot help but cringe. However, with a modern twist, 70’s warm earthy tones and curved furnishings give us something to be excited about and look forward to seeing more of in 2022… however that infamous 1970’s orange will not be expected to make an appearance…
Colour Trends 2022
PANTONE and Dulux have both announced a new ‘colour or the year’ for 2022. PANTONE ‘Very Peri’ Dulux ‘Bright Skies’ are both on the cool side of the colour wheel with a more neutral undertone but still exhibiting bright personalities which gives these colours a fun twist on typical neutral colour trends. PANTONE has released several colour palettes that complement ‘Very Peri’ and have also showcased how the colour can be used in designs as accents or as the main statement. Dulux has a similar approach to exhibiting their colour of the year by producing four palettes to compliment ‘Bright Skies’ – Dulux describes the colour as an “airy and fresh tone that opens up and breathes new life into any space”.
Both colours are described and used as a ‘transformative’ shade, whether they are painted on walls, sprayed on joinery, or used as accents, they are beautiful colours that we’re excited to see take over 2022.
