The year 2022 is set to be a huge year for interior design. At Achieve Homes, we’re ready to take what we’ve learnt during two years of lockdown and apply it to creating modern homes that reflect new behaviours and lifestyles.
Our Selections Studio team have highlighted some of their favourite interior design trends for the year ahead – read on to find out what they are and how you can incorporate them into your new home.
After two years largely spent inside, a connection to nature is set to be more important than ever this year. Biophilic design encourages a relationship between indoor and out, emphasising organic design elements like natural materials (think timber, concrete and stone), plenty of natural light and ventilation. It can also translate to lots of indoor plants, foliage and even fresh flowers.
Embracing natural elements will extend to colour palettes, with soft earthy tones set to dominate in 2022. Greys, olive and eucalyptus greens, ochre and warm clay browns will appear in feature walls, furniture, cabinetry, fixtures and fittings, adding a sense of calm and serenity to any space.
Working from home is here to stay, so creating a space specifically for the 9-5 will be more important than ever. However, this doesn’t need to be an entirely new room – for true flexibility, a built-in study nook is the perfect middle ground.
Not only does a study nook provide a productive space for work, it won’t take up too much room in your floorplan. Study nooks works best in otherwise unused parts of the home – under the stairs, in the kitchen or even hidden behind cupboard doors in a living area.
Waves aren’t just for the ocean – curves are here to stay in interior design, appearing in homewares, furniture, cabinetry, headboards and rugs. When paired with earthy colours, curves can bring a sense of comfort and calm to any space, softening the overall look and feel to make living spaces, bedrooms and alfresco areas cosier and more inviting.
We expect natural textures will be big in 2022 – particularly rattan, wicker and soft linen furnishings. Textural inclusions like soft linen or sheer curtains can add an element of style and privacy to large windows, while bold textured feature walls make a statement in bedrooms and living areas.
Travertine is also set to make a splash in this year’s interior design trends as a smooth alternative to marble. Super durable and with an added level of warmth, travertine can be used in flooring and furniture, as well as smaller homewares and decorative objects.
