New season, new home vibes.
Much like how we dress and our style, our homes are also constantly evolving and changing as we grow and embrace new trends and ways of living.
The start of a new season always makes us want to make a few updates, right now, it feels like we are all emerging from a long collective winter. Now, we want to open our homes to friend and family, we want to throw parties, embrace this new sense of freedom and re-engage with the world around us.
And this mood is reflected in the trends we are seeing pop up in interiors in 2022. Colours are bolder, louder and braver. Patterns are exciting and feel global – now that we are ready to take on the world again.
Curious as to what to update your home with in 2022? Here are 10 really NOW trends you are about to see popping up everywhere this year:
No surprises here—our love of plants are still going strong.
Big, small, tropical, more local – plants add a pop of colour and life to any room, and bonus? They do wonders for our indoor air quality and environment too.
2. Colour and texture
Having just emerged from a world-wide pandemic, we are feeling vibrant and adventurous again.
Gone are the days of all-white walls and kitchen, now we want to surround ourselves with an abundance of natural colours, such as yellows, greens, and orange-y reds, as well as shades or desert pink and brown too.
While neutrals soothed our pandemic-rattled brains in the middle of 2020 and into 2021, now we are ready to shake off boring and embrace bold – and we could not be more excited.
3. Sustainable choices
Climate change is a worry for so many of us, and we are all more aware of how our actions can help or add to the problem. We try to make better choices with how we eat, commute and recycle, and this also goes for how we shop and what we buy.
More and more people are shifting towards more sustainable living practices and products, and we want to support businesses with products that are consciously designed and responsibly manufactured.
4. Bold ceilings
Gone are the days when we automatically went for white when it comes to our ceilings. These days, we want bold impact – and a painted ceiling – the moodier colours, the better – does just that.
5. Brave colour contrasts
Picking two shades on opposite sides of the colour wheel will give you that bold contrast – and can all agree it looks amazing? Don’t be afraid to take risks – chances are you will strike gold.
6. Wooden kitchen fronts
Out of fashion for a while, wooden kitchens are once more enjoying a bit of a revival. And looking at this, it is easy to see why.
7. Rattan lighting fixtures
Everyone’s favourite natural material always looks good – and this year, it has finally made its way onto lighting – and we can’t get enough of it
8. Scalloped edges
A trend inspired by the sea will continue to feature most of 2022, and scalloped edges and shapes is a style we’re particularly loving, for its whimsical feel and curvy lines.
Think beautiful piped edges to bedding, lacquered trays with scalloped edges, furniture with curved edge trim, rugs will scallop detailing. Basically, anything that can benefit from a scalloped edge, give it a go!
9. Floral block prints
Block printing is nothing new, its original technique originated in China and was later adopted by Indian artisans thousands of years ago.
And right now, intricate floral block prints are having a major revival and are sprouting up everywhere – and we could not be happier about it.
10. Mindful spaces
Having just spent more time than ever before inside of our homes these past two years, we now have a deeper awareness of how we want our spaces to feel and they impact they have on our emotions and wellbeing.
Going forward, we will likely see more spaces that have personality and personal ties to the interests, hobbies and pleasures of its owner, and less bland interiors that look like a show home.
