With the pandemic, our home has become our safe haven and the dominant trend towards ‘feel good’ interiors will continue for 2022.
Through design, we will look to create more comfortable and relaxed environments within our homes. To enhance comfort, people can use warm, neutral colours and we expect to see more curves in furniture, lighting, and accessories, and layering with different textures especially soft and cozy fabrics.
As people spend more time indoors due to the pandemic, people will also be bringing more of the outdoors and nature into their homes. Landscape palettes with green and blue hues will be popular. Natural materials and wood tones, stone with prominent graining, and natural textures such as rattan, bamboo and dried grasses will offer a comforting reminder of the outdoors. Plants and flowers in the home will also be used to bring nature into our everyday environment.
Finally, with supply-chain issues and climate change concerns, people will be incorporating more vintage and locally made and sustainability sourced design items such as furniture into their homes.
