Have you ever wanted to redo your home but may not know what is in style? Some of the top interior designers have put together a list of the trends to keep up throughout this year. Continue reading to learn a few of the many trends that were included!
Every year, professional designers and home editors (myself included) get a kick out of predicting the design trends people will welcome into their homes. Even if a specific movement isn’t suitable for you (a maximalist aesthetic isn’t for everyone, right?), it’s always fun to discover the color palettes, furniture choices and other decor elements that are all the rage at the moment. In other words, the top interior design trends for 2022 are worth considering.
In 2021, people focused on pieces that mix style and practicality — think self-cleaning bidets for a more luxurious bathroom, for example. But this year, everything from bringing the outdoors in to experimenting with pattern and texture, and finding design inspiration from past decades are of interest.
We connected with a group of dynamic interior designers to find out the top interior design trends that they’ve come across so this year as well as what to expect in the coming months. Use their thoughtful insights to upgrade your home, whether it’s a standout kitchen or calming bedroom, or simply enjoy thinking about your dream abode. There’s fun in that, too!
1. Home Libraries
“I’ve noticed that people have been investing in home libraries for their families. They are starting to grasp that not everything has to be on a laptop, smartphone or tablet.” — Linda Hayslett, LH.Designs
2. Pattern Play
“We are introducing more patterns in our projects and our clients are embracing it. We don’t suggest going overboard with overmixing large, bold prints or overusing prints on all the fabrics, walls and rugs. Instead, mixing a patterned wallpaper with a stone, wood or brick floor that has a shape and form, like herringbone or chevron, is a great way to play with pattern without looking chaotic.” — Maria Viola-Kuttruff, Viola Interior Design
Textures are going to be utilized far outside of furniture and rugs this year. Tongue and groove boards on the ceiling add to architectural interest while injecting an earthy texture. Curtains can be used to filter light beautifully and add a softness to the room. Even lighting can provide texture to rooms, depending on the material used.” — Joshua Smith, Joshua Smith Inc.
4. Natural Elements
“An emphasis on natural elements and color palettes will continue to grow in 2022. Warm beiges, browns, blues and greens will provide comfort in homes with a calming presence and a look that is easy on the eyes. Furniture with blonde wood will help keep spaces looking light and airy.” — Lindye Galloway, Lindye Galloway Studio + Shop
5. 1980s Decor Inspiration
“The 80’s are calling: they want their mauve gray geometrics back in fashion! That layer of decades found in the vintage store wants to be able to have a coordinating fabric rug or wallcovering. — Kellie Burke, Kellie Burke Interiors
