What’s hot for 2022 when it comes to home design trends?
‘Getting back to nature’ is the catchcry for home design in 2022 as property owners integrate earthy tones and natural elements into their personal sanctuaries.
New design trends show our homes have become much more functional on the back of the COVID pandemic and work-from-home arrangements, but we all still yearn for a sense of solitude and calm.
So, it’s no surprise that natural, sustainable surrounds are being favoured in a big way this year when it comes to interior décor.
Here’s some home design ideas we’re likely to see more of:
Neutral tones with pops of colour
Gone is the grey and white palette. The trend for 2022 is a focus on warmer, earthy tones like tans, neutral browns, beiges and creams.
Bursts of colour are also proving popular too, with black tapware in bathrooms, kitchens and laundries, eye-catching splashbacks and verdant greenery from indoor plants.
Bring the outside in
Natural materials and textures have become increasingly popular in recent years and are prominent again this year. And it’s not surprising given the increased awareness amongst homeowners seeking sustainable and eco-conscious housing designs.
Think light-coloured timbers and furnishings including cane, rattan and cotton paired with marble and granite.
Make it minimalist
Life is hectic enough so the mantra of ‘less is more’ has become a staple in many homes since the pandemic struck.
Clear your home clutter to create a minimalist vibe – and that means beautiful interior designs with space to think, breathe and just be.
Lush and green
Indoor plants have many positive benefits including helping to reduce stress, enhancing wellbeing and improving air quality.
Pull out your green thumb. This year, fiddle leaf fig trees and monstera remain popular, while banana plants, ferns and flowering plants are also being embraced in our homes.
