New Year is the time for all things new and exciting. Around this New Year, we are all set to revamp our houses and living spaces with a more personal touch. Now that we have had pretty intense past years it’s all about functional living, meaning functional spaces that are required for both works from home and creatively utilising our spaces for multiple uses. This year’s trends are focused on going by the natural hues of nature and eliminating the fads.
New Year is right around the corner and we want to help you enhance your living spaces with the best of this seasons interior trends.
Our homes are the places where we want to feel relaxed and give us a serene touch from all the hustle and bustle outside. With the pandemic, our health and families are more important than ever and these trends are all the more revolving around families. With the space sharing and more than one person homes with smaller spaces which presets in a sustainable living, the interior trends are practical and give a breath of freshness and nature-inspired outlook that is easy on the eyes and the mind.
The calming interiors with personalised spaces are the one-line summary of this year’s interior decor trends. This has been approved by almost all the architectural and interior designing sites. Let’s look into the trends for the year 2022 that you can easily pull off before the new year even starts.
NATURAL COLOUR SCHEME
The Natural schemes of colours comprise the earthy and au natural tones that have been inspired by nature. The inspiring blues and greens and earthy reds are all in this year’s trends.
The natural colour can be incorporated on the walls, coloured stones and marble and granite mixes are now being installed in the bathroom, around the walls as wainscoting and even on the flooring. You can easily paint your wooden flooring or doors with the shades of olive greens or moss, or the bright colours of the sky, with white and neutrals you can make your home appeal more breathable and light and airy. The colours are easy on the eyes and make your interiors look like a calm oasis. The neutral tones are the easiest to decorate and match with almost any type of furniture and material. Add textures on the sofas and rugs with these minimal tones and make the most of your spaces.
Biophilic designs are incorporating natural greens with the buildings. The greens are naturally incorporated into the buildings to make them more sustainable and create a greener space for your body. The greenery which is incorporated can be installed in a number of ways from smaller plants like succulents to climbing ivy running throughout your houses. You can incorporate the green plants that filter out air for any toxic substances and make the air cleaner. Green plants are also some of the easiest home plants to maintain and require minimum sunlight and watering and care if you have a busy lifestyle. Herb garden outside and in your kitchen corners are also growing as a trend. We all have made our homes space to shelter and protect ourselves from the virus and making our spaces greener and cleaner is a very easy yet effective way to get those results.
Multifunctional spaces are now a basic requirement for our houses. Whether it be a yoga or meditation centre or work from home office space. Our spaces have been divided and making a clear layout plan for our spaces have to include multipurpose furniture and material and spaces that are taking our shorted spaces in mins. Therefore, a roll-out bed or multipurpose cabinet drawer and rooftop rooms and multilayered spaces that are divided either by wooden benched bedrooms for kids or divided by a different flooring type, multi-purposes, spaces are all the rage now and make our professional and personnel live’s better and efficient in our homes. The versatility of our furniture and living spaces that are more flexible and versatile is what the architectures and interior designers are aiming for. For example, a kitchen island table that can be used as a professional space desk is what serves the versatility feature of interior decor.
FLORAL FABRICS AND MOTIFS
The floral patterns of upholstery and wallpaper materials are all back and everything that could incorporate an extra touch of colour and texture in the walls or the furniture. The floral printed sofa covers are also back with a bang and the lines between minimalism and maximalism are blurring and it’s all about personalising the spaces with textures and materials that make our homes our own haven. From pretty pinks to velvet materials and green embroidery patterns that are handwoven, all are being welcomed with open hands. These additions are long-lasting and durable. They are cost-effective ways of revamping your houses. These fabrics come in several textures and material choices like upholstery or cotton or linen as the lighter components to add.
Floral to folk art-inspired patterns and more are all to inspire our homes with a splash of bold looks. Motifs are the pieces that we purchase on our journeys and display them to remember our travel and that gives us the motivation to more such vacations. Motifs will become very popular this new year.
VINTAGE IS BACK
Past year trends were revolving around a minimalistic decor that was lighter and inspired by ultra-modern to contemporary looks. However, we are done with the spaces being left all alone and vintage patterns and furniture are all back that has been the trend all throughout this year’s end as well. Coming back in pieces like a centre table or vintage lamp decor now has been coming with all its strides. The unique details of the vintage interior and the environment-friendly approach of recycling or upscaling is in trend. Vintage furniture is a long term investment that has been laid out and curated in the most marvellous ways. Vintage has been included in century-old homes that just exude grandeur and history. Vintage furniture can be very well incorporated in your homes to pull of both modern and mid centurion feel and bring up a great intermix of colours that brightens up your space.
INTERIORS WITH BLACK ACCENTS
Black is easy to pick and make a major breakthrough in spaces that are shorter in size. Black can be included in window frames, trim, doors, cabinet hardware, faucets, and door frames. Black is a very versatile and flexible colour and enhances the interiors with a modern touch. Black on white or neutral tones gives overall a very sleek and modern look that exudes sophistication in a creative way. If you have a minimalistic interior, adding a dash of the black accent will give a clean yet greater depth to the look.
CIRCLE BACK TO LIFE
Shapes that are softer and forgiving are coming around this year. One such shape that we can expect is a circle. Circle rugs and tables to circle console tables are expected to come back. According to Feng Shui, a circle is a very prosperous shape that also enhances communication and togetherness as all sitting across a circular table will communicate and interact with everyone. Edgy and sharp-cornered tables that go sleeker at the end are done being in the moment and softer, soothing and calmer shape inculcations are being promoted. Families are everything today and our homes are now all the more becoming a shared space, including a curvy and comfy shape to your interiors will rejoice at this moment and also give your interiors a very unique outlook.
ACCESSORIES THE WALLS
The walls as our interiors are some of the most underestimated features of the house. Walls are not only for the hanging of our art but their potential can be very versatile and diverse. Walls alone can add texture to our interiors. When it comes to making spaces that speak a thousand words without doing too much, walls can be used in a diverse way. Adding wallpapers that are decorated in a number of patterns and textures can dec up the room with bright detailed designs. From embroidered upholstered fabric to adding cotton and linen wall clothes, it gives a very grand and lavish appeal with a lot of colour patterns to play with. From cloth to upholstered fabric to recycled paper all are coming with a bang. The walls can be accessorised without permanently committing to one wallpaper or colour and pattern choice. They are also cost-effective and make an environmentally friendly installation with recycled paper.
