Interior Decor Trends to Know in 2022
For millennia, interior decor trends have been used as aesthetic aids in our attempts to find some sort of inner peace: take the ancient Chinese art of feng shui, where spatial positioning corresponds with energy flow, or wabi sabi, the Japanese practice of embracing an imperfections.
And what, exactly, are our senses drawn to in 2022? Some predict the rise of the enveloping, earthy color of brown, displayed in fabrics like leather or even in terracotta walls. Others see a spike in nature-inspired surfaces and accents like rattan and by having plants everywhere. Essentially, anything that feels warm, welcoming and cozy is in!
1. Plants everywhere!
Why not bring the cool and calming effect of plants inside to us? Plants are not a new home decor trend, but it is one that continues to be on the rise in 2022. Plants range from small to large, inexpensive to extremely costly, and from low maintenance to having to care for them everyday. The many different colours can accentuate the overall feel and look of any room they are placed in. Also, they are natural air purifiers!
2. Shades of Brown
Neutrals will take a bit of a back seat in 2022 as people want to see color again, but the palette will stay very close to hues you’d find in nature. Paint rollers will be dipped in rosy, terracotta tones, beautiful caramel and beige that will swath rooms from wall to ceiling for a complete monochromatic moment that envelops you in its coziness.
3. Integrated Offices
With working from home becoming more integrated into workplace policies, many have had to look for space in their home to set up a work space. Enter ‘cloffices’; closet offices that can be tucked away when the work day is done. Create your own little nook where you can concentrate and work, while being at home.
4. Floral Wallpaper
What is the thing we see the most in our home Probably our computer monitor. What is the second thing we see most in our home? Probably our phone screen. However, other than those, what we see the most is our wallpaper. Floral designs and wallpaper have been making a comeback in many homes. The floral designs would naturally go well with the plants around the house.
Rattan has been making a big comeback. A couple years ago it was something brand new to see people have woven handbags and purses. Nowadays you cannot go into someone’s living room without seeing at least one piece of woven furniture. When you see rattan paired with house plants, you will understand exactly why they go so well together. Tropical vibes! Not only that, but rattan also goes with everything. You can mix and match different colors with this type of furniture and they will easily compliment each other.
