The new year holds the promise of new beginnings – the chance to improve yourself and learn from the mistakes of previous years.
Each year comes with its own distinctive style and design trends, and we’d be remiss not to share what 2022 has to offer. Let’s take a look at the colours and patterns that will characterise the year to come.
What are the latest interior design trends?
1. Move over, minimalism. Maximalism is where it’s at.
For years now, designers have fallen over themselves in an attempt to perfect the ‘minimalist look’. Whilst there is a time and a place for minimalism, 2022 is most certainly not it.
2022 is a time to be bold. 2022 is a time to be expressive. After more than a year of uncertainty and lockdown announcements, it’s time to unleash your creative, colourful side on the interiors of your home. We firmly believe that the home should tell a story – and an interesting one at that! Banish the monochrome and embrace the lively and vibrant.
Maximalism is characterised by concentrated colours, diverse patterns and playful, utterly unconstrained designs. If you like the idea of embracing your inner maximalist, find out more about the revival of wall murals and feature wallpaper.
2. Be bold. Be floral.
Whilst we’re on the subject of being bold (and contemplating the installation of feature walls), let’s talk flowers.
There’s an obvious appeal in bringing the beauty of nature into our homes, and 2022 looks like it will be a year in which people welcome the great outdoors after many months of being cooped up inside.
The good news is that there are a great many floral patterns to choose from. If you fancy really making a statement, consider adding some Chinoiserie wallpaper to the walls of your house. There’s nothing quite like beautifully rendered cherry blossoms and herons to set your mind at ease.
3. The colour on everyone’s lips is… green
Yes, you heard that correctly. Green is a very in vogue amongst interior designers at the moment, and it looks set to remain that way for the foreseeable future. Given the current demand for nature-inspired interiors, we can see why verdant interiors are so popular.
Emerald green has been featured on a number of different wallpaper collections, and it’s not hard to see why: a shade of green that isn’t too dark or too pale can revitalise the interiors of a home during even the dreariest of months. We’d struggle to think of a better way to herald the onset of spring than by paying homage to this hue in the walls of your house.
And that takes us nicely to the topic of sustainability. With brands playing ever closer attention to the materials that they use in their designs and demand for mindful purchase decisions greater than ever before, 2022 looks set to be a year marked by sustainable furniture and ethically sourced materials.
5. Geometric patterns are most certainly ‘in’
Given that the experience of the last few years has often been one of never-ending chaos, it is perhaps not surprising that interiors which reference geometric arrangements have seen a rise in popularity.
Geometric patterns provide a sense of order and regularity and can bring colour and depth to your walls. If you want to bring a contemporary feel to your house, geometric wallpaper may just be what you need.
