Interior Design Trends for 2022Lindsay Chambers
While some things never go out of style, interior design trends tend to shift in response to cultural demands and the need to stay relevant in a changing society. After spending more time than ever at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, people now want their living spaces to be calming, comfortable, and cozy. 2022’s top interior design trends reflect these values. Three months into this year, here are a few things to look for.
1. Earth Tones
“Color of the Year” choices tend to provide an early hint of what will be in style for the rest of the year. For instance, Benjamin Moore selected a sage-green shade reminiscent of plants, while Dunn-Edwards chose a soft, sophisticated brown. Pairing these earth tones with other nature-inspired colors can create a soothing palette if you plan to repaint as part of your next interior design project.
2. Sustainable Choices
Sustainably sourced, high-quality pieces have always been integral to Prevalent Projects’ design philosophy, so we are pleased to see people making more environmentally friendly choices when they shop for furniture, lighting, and décor. Everyone has a shared responsibility to protect our environment, and going green can help reduce waste and pollution while minimizing your home’s carbon footprint.
3. Bringing the Outdoors In
If your overall aesthetic ideals include incorporating lots of natural light, fresh air, and greenery, 2022 may be your year. Creating a visual connection with nature may include bringing in more plants to freshen up your home and naturally purify the air. Or, if your budget and space allow you to tackle a more significant project, you could add a sunroom for year-round enjoyment.
4. Privacy Nooks
While open floor plans remain enduringly popular, people are being more intentional about how they use their available space – likely as a direct result of being at home more often. All the extra time spent indoors has given people plenty of opportunity to reevaluate what they want from their living space, and calm and privacy are ruling the day. Whether you choose to carve out room to dedicate to a private home office, workout area, or your children’s study center, ensure it benefits your well-being and interests.
5. Curved Furniture
The boxy, angular shapes of previous years have given way to softly curving furniture and organic pieces that feel comforting and inviting, encouraging you to sit down and stay awhile. This 2022 interior design trend will likely continue gaining momentum in the coming years as more people seek to create spaces of refuge at home.
