People who appreciate Wabi-Sabi décor will be happy to know that in 2022 the world of interior design will move towards a search of beauty and aesthetic that promotes flaws and imperfections as an asset to create a personal and unique home decoration. It has been yet another challenging year where we kept on working and spending more time at home, therefore the way we use our living space has changed. Creating clean and comfortable spaces is becoming a priority and a starting point to design and decorate your own personal place to call home. Let's see how you can improve the style of your property with the 10 interior design and home décor trends of 2022:
NEUTRAL AND NATURAL
Home used to be a place to come back to after a long day at work, a place where to finally relax and unwind. Working from home completely changed everything because what we once overlooked about our interior decoration began to surface. Neutral colours and natural materials solved the problems thanks to their inner properties of creating a tranquil and peaceful feeling at home. Grey, beige, white and brown can be used to paint our walls this year, adding a warm undertone to them. If you feel like you need more colour but still want to keep the palette neutral, you can explore earthy colours that include shades of green.
GREEN AND PINK ACCENTS
Haven't we just said that the new year is all about neutrality? Yes, so when we talk about using green and pink accents we are talking about their deeper and more rich shades like terracotta pinks, olive and fern greens. We know how colours deeply affect our well-being and according to psychologists, these hues of pink and green signal safety, warmth and comfort to our brains. They could also be used on unusually shaped tiles, another big trend we'll see in 2022 for bathroom or kitchen walls, like scalloped or pentagonal shaped tiles.
If you are looking for peace and harmony in the past, curved furniture and round shapes are coming back in fashion. It is a revival of the timeless 60's and 70's shapes like curvy sofas, mirrors, and kitchen islands. We tend to associate circles and round shapes with security and harmony so in the new year, it is good to include a curved statement furniture like an armchair in your interior decoration. Moreover, if you are renovating your home in Fuerteventura, you can take the chance to design and include architectural features like arches in your hallways.
The sustainability factor is becoming an important constant in the design world thanks to more people moving towards a conscious and ethical approach in regards to planet Earth and its natural resources. Using sustainable material and integrating energy-efficient solutions is not only beneficial but it opens the way to sustainable design options when it comes to furniture, lighting and the home design. In 2022, especially younger generations, will use reclaimed, recycled, and ethically sourced materials to renovate and decorate their homes.
An interior decorator will never be happy with a project unless textiles are added in the right way and in the perfect materials and colours. There is nothing better than textiles to add that extra touch of colour to a room and in the new year, we will see the rise of warm tones when it comes to textiles. Since the trend will be to keep the background neutral and natural, textiles like linen and organic cotton in earthy tones or with interesting patterns will help you create a layered and textured look in your living room or bedroom.
VINTAGE IS BACK
What was so great about the 70's interior design style? Everything! Vintage furniture is becoming a source of inspiration for designers who are recreating modern versions of vintage and retro inspired design pieces. Velvet, low sofas, rattan furniture and the mix of colourful wooden furniture and glass elements can truly elevate your home décor in a way that no other style can. Durability is another key element of vintage décor and it perfectly aligns with the sustainability factor.
TOUCHES OF JAPANDI
Japadi has been a wonderful discovery in 2021 and it will continue to be a prominent trend (and a very Instagramable one) next year. The exciting mix of Scandinavian-Japanese interior design is perfect for the lovers of minimalism, its muted colour palette and clean and simple lines. All of these elements can be easily included in any home interior next year to create balanced open spaces , Japandi also places a lot of importance on decorating with plants and this a beautiful way to introduce green as the main colour.
MULTIFUNCTIONAL SPACES AND FURNITURE
If you buy a home or villa in Fuerteventura, an interior designer can help you from the very beginning to design and decorate the space taking in consideration your own personal taste and needs. Every space and every room has a specific function for you, therefore it is important to design it in a multifunctional way. Are you a digital nomad or remote worker? Do you need a home office or a little corner and desk is enough? Do you have many things to store? These are just a few of the many things to consider when designing multifunctional furniture that will help you keep the space organized and pleasant to work and live in.
Another important decorative element, and extremely impacting feature of any interior design, is the floor pattern and in 2022 one of the hottest home décor trends will be the come-back of herringbone floors and also geometric patterned floors. Again, neutral colours will be the key for a successful flooring because they will keep the interesting shapes of the tiles more visible. However, if your interior design is already neutral, you can experiment with more audacious patters and colours for your floors.
Even if you are not a fan of grey, in 2022 grey paint will be featuring brown undertones to completely move away from the 90's look and welcome a more modern yet warmer and richer shade of grey. If grey is usually used as a neutral, safe base colour, this year it will become a protagonist because warm greys are able to decorate calming and cosy interiors.
