My top 5 favourite interior design trends of 2022

Updated: Jan 10, 2023

I hope everyone's had a fantastic Christmas and is (hopefully) enjoying some time off work with family and friends! For our last blog post of the year, I wanted to share with you some of the interior design trends that we saw in 2022 that I fully embraced. None of these are new concepts, in fact they all started appearing a few years ago but have now become a large part of interiors in 2022.

1 | Colour

Colour in interiors started to come back during the pandemic but was everywhere in 2022. Greens, blues, and warmer terracotta tones were the most popular colours, with most of my clients asking for these as a feature in their homes. Backed by the Dulux forecast for 2023, we really don't think colour is going anywhere in the new year either!

2 | Nature as inspiration

As well as more colour, we also saw an increase in warmer tones and natural textures. I've loved using timbers, natural stone, and concrete, paired with warm greys, beiges and creams in many of my client's homes this year. Windows and natural light have also been an incredibly important part of every design, with the need to bring more light into homes.

3 | Curves

Curved forms, particularly in cabinetry and furniture were huge in 2021 and have definitely not gone anywhere this year. Not only are we still seeing it in cabinetry and furniture, but also in structural elements like windows, doors and walls throughout homes.

4 | Lines

Contrasting from the trend of curves above, lines have also been very popular in 2022. In bathrooms and splashbacks, we've seen a rise in kitkat mosaics, and in square and subway tiles laid vertically or horizontally stacked. We've also seen a lot of lines in cabinetry profiles and in VJ panelling or scalloped feature walls. I actually love the linear surfaces paired with the curved forms to create a lovely balance of the two.

5 | Home Office

Even though many people have gone back to the office since the last lockdown ended, we have not stopped seeing a rise in clients asking for home offices or, at least, home office nooks. We've put them in kitchens, in rumpuses, in hallways, understairs nooks, and more. They create fantastic multi-purpose spaces that are handy whether you are working from home or not!
