4 home experts share the interiors trends we can expect to see in 2022

From key shades to fresh moods, we can’t wait to see how these trends make their way into real homes.

With each new year comes fresh interiors trends to inspire and provide ideas for our homes. So whether you want to revamp a room or are just looking for some small updates, we’ve asked four interiors experts what they’re predicting will be popular in our homes this year.

Nature-forward

Biophilic designs are those that connect us to nature, and we’ve seen touches like plants and organic textures become increasingly popular in our homes over the past few years.

2022 is set to see the trend continue according to Laurie Davidson, stylist at Homesense. “Create your own botanical sleep sanctuary with an overhead plant canopy to frame your bed,” she recommends.

“Hanging planters, sheer draped fabrics and light layers of bedding create a dreamy effect, while furniture in bamboo, and wicker adds to the natural look.”

Mixed metals

While previously we may have thought we need to stick to one metal in a space, combining several different ones can create a more interesting effect. Sonas Bathrooms CEO, Richard Sloan says, “in 2022, mixed metals are a growing trend giving homeowners the freedom to create a unique look.”

Feeling green

For 2022, Irish paint brand Colourtrend is predicting that green will be popping up everywhere, from contemporary teal shades such as Mussel, Juniper Whorl and Source to crisp and refreshing greens like Schoolroom Green, Bunratty, Standing Tall and Sweet Caper.

“Depending on the depth and tone, greens can also be soothing and refreshing, or they can be bold and powerful. The versatility of green makes the shade an outstanding choice for a home office or living room space, but most recently a go-to choice for a kitchen feature wall or cabinetry.”

Curating our clutter

While we may admire ultra-minimalist homes in magazines and on our Instagram feeds, it’s unlikely to be a reality for most of us. We have things that have meaning to us, and so it’s important to incorporate them into our homes.

Clotilde Passalacqua, Interior Design Leader at Ikea advises: “To invoke the curated cluttercore trend and repurpose, store, and show off your items with flair, incorporate clashing tones, rich and textured materials with contrasting structures to provide a feeling of richness within the home.”
