We all love getting new inspirations for decorating our homes. Each year seems to bring with it new trends for interior design, and 2022 is no different. There are a myriad of options that will allow you to maximize your style and aesthetic this year. Here are some of the most popular interior design trends for 2022.
Neutrals are always classic and allow for you to really diversify your aesthetic; however, they are becoming even more prominent this year. They can be combined with whites as well as cool and warm undertones. Shades of grey and beige are perhaps the most popular when considering neutral paint colors. Making your walls neutral can really maximize your options for décor. This is likely one of the reasons they are increasing in use given that there are an increasingly large number of trends and neutrals allow for more to be incorporated.

Sustainable design involves the use of locally and ethically sourced products. As such, many designers are looking more into not only the options provided in terms of décor but also the means through which they are sourced.

The recent pandemic has left most of us spending a lot more time in our homes. With that, it is no surprise that a huge interior design trend for 2022 involves creating more relaxing spaces for the home. One way this is taking shape is through relaxing nooks. Whether a breakfast nook or one for relaxing and reading, this is a big trend. A cozy nook tends to work best in areas with large windows that can produce a lot of natural light. Pair a small wooden table and chairs or match a coffee table with a cushioned bench for the right vibe you’d like to create.

Curved furniture brings with it a very soft and wavy vibe. This can be incorporated through curve-backed chairs or through the incorporation of angular sofas. Adding curves can help break up the monotony of what is often more linear design. This works great in spaces of all kinds from bedrooms to living rooms. Feel free to experiment by mixing pieces with sharper curves with those with softer ones to create contrast and juxtaposition.
