2022 Interior Trends

Updated: Oct 11, 2023

And so, another year begins and for me a very exciting chapter as I am now working on my very own interior design business full time! I personally make goals for the year, rather than resolutions in January and one of my main goals is to finish my own home renovation. Watch this space!! Something I love about a new year is anticipating likely trends and so I thought I would share some ideas here.

The Dark Side! More and more people are implementing darker colours into their home now and I am here for it. I have personally always been quite into monochrome décor so am a lover of black, but am now really drawn to deep greens and blues too. A dark room is all encompassing and can feel cosy and calming when paired with the right furniture and accessorises.

Home Offices We have all now been at home for longer than we had imagined and with companies giving more flexibility for employees to work from home, it is likely to continue that way for a lot of people now. So rather than sitting at the temporary workspace you created on your dining table, there will likely be a trend to make a more permanent home office area. As we don’t all have the luxury of this being a separate space, we can close the door on at the end of the day, multifunctional spaces will be needed. Think spare room come office or a desk with doors you can close at the end of the day in a corner of the living room.

Open Shelving One of my favourite things! We have got quite good at open shelving and ‘shelfies’ in the living room, but I anticipate there being more of this in every room. Rather than top cupboards in kitchens, why not open up the space further and show off your beautiful ornaments and tableware.

Sustainability Something that we all need to have at the forefront of our minds and that has growing importance in every element of living. We all know that interiors and especially new purchases don’t make it easy to practice this, but it is something we all need to work on. Perhaps it is upcycling a piece of existing furniture and giving it a new lease of life rather than buying something new or choosing items from companies that are more sustainable. With building and decorating, don’t forget that there are more sustainable options and you could also work on improving the energy efficiency of your home.

Mindful Spaces Wellbeing is rightly becoming more talked about and more important in day-to-day life for most people. Our homes can play a big part in this by being places we enjoy being in and feel comfortable in. When everything has its own place and feels welcoming and cosy it certainly helps us all feel happier. This can be achieved by decluttering, having ample storage and creating visual balance in your home. Natural materials like wood and varying texture can help to accomplish this look and feel.

I look forward to reviewing these trends at the end of the year and seeing what wonderful creations the world of interiors sees in 2022. If you have a new renovation in the pipeline or want to change up a space in your home, please get in touch with me to see how I can help. Drop me an e-mail on to discuss your exciting project further.
