Our top three interior design trends for 2022
As we emerge from the safe cocoons many of us found ourselves encased in over the past few years, we awaken to find that transformations are being made all around us, and a fresh progression in interior design is surfacing to help us make the most of the spaces we surround ourselves with. Here are three trends for 2022 that will help you decide how to make your window dressings tie your new interior look together.
Soft earth tones
2022 is set to be brimming with soft earth tones, and the ‘colour of the year’ selections give a promising indication of this year’s trends, with Benjamin Moore picking a soft grey-green, Sherwin-Williams settling on sage, and Glidden having chosen a light olive green. “The ‘colour of the year’ selections correlate with where we are as a society,” Ginger Curtis, owner and principal designer at Urbanology Designs, says. “People need healing spaces that are restorative and calming.” She expects these earthy greens to be paired with other nature-inspired colours — like sky blues, warm browns, and soft greys.
Combine these subtle and calming shades and tones with the timeless shape of Roman Blinds. The natural colour ways of Romo, featuring fresh ‘colours of the year’, come highly recommended when choosing your fabric. Combined with the Duette Blind Smart Cord, comfort, style and convenience come hand in hand.
Layers in nature
Plants have always been a popular addition to our homes, but in 2022 we can expect to start seeing nods to nature reflected in our interiors – florals, textures and patterns in our fabrics and wallpapers. “The pandemic ushered us all outside, and now we are taking that outside inspiration inside,” Curtis says.
Layering thick, cosy curtains over the soft, earthy tones of blinds can add an extra luxury to any interior, and the nature inspired fabrics of Sanderson lend a wonderfully natural accent to the subtle colourways of 2022.
Warm wood touches
Our fabric colours aren’t the only thing getting softer and warmer in 2022—our wood colours are, too. Warm, medium-tone woods are already popular in flooring, but this year we should see more of this in our furniture and décor as we begin to move away from washed out spaces and aim for comfort, cosiness and warmth.
One way to add the warmth of a wooden accent to your home is with wooden Venetian Blinds, and Louvolite’s tones of Cherry, Merbau and Jacobean are just perfect for the cosy interiors that we’ll be seeking this year.
