Fashion in interior design changes as often as in clothing and accessories. For 2022, designers have already given forecasts for colors, materials, furniture, decor and styles. We figure out what will be in new interior trends for 2022 and how to add fashionable details to the interior.
Popular in the new year will be the menthol shade Neo Mint (“Neomyata”). It is neutral, so it is suitable for decoration, furniture and accents. Just not all at once, otherwise the interior will turn out to be monotonous and cold. Neo Mint is combined with white, metallic decor and airy transparent elements – partitions, tables, chairs.
Varnish and paint brands release their own versions of mint shades
For example, the Dulux line has a Tranquil Dawn color that is more basic and calm than Neo Mint. It is suitable for wall or ceiling decoration.
Bottle green looks catchy and sophisticated. They are given accents – they decorate the wall, buy a sofa or a kitchen set in this color. It adds luxury to the rooms.
Another popular shade in 2022 is Bleached Coral (“bleached coral”). It is a pale blue-gray color. It is neutral: suitable for decoration and large furniture. Combines with almost all colors and interior styles.
Another trendy shade is Cassis (“Black currant”). It became popular this year and will move on to the next. The color is pink-purple, bright and rich. It is good for them to place accents: hang curtains or put a couple of chairs of this shade.
The warm range in the new year will not be as popular as the cold blue-green, but there are still a couple of trendy yellow and orange shades. The trend is soft, muted and whitened tones – for example, Cantaloupe (“Cantaloupe”) and Mellow Yellow (“Soft yellow”). They are used in decoration, furniture and accessories.
The brown-red hue has come into fashion due to the trend for leather furniture: armchairs, sofas, chairs. It is good for floor tiles, textiles, decor. Combines with calm gray, green, beige tones.
Materials and textures
In the new year, the trend towards naturalness will gain momentum. Wooden furniture, decorative figurines, accessories will make the interior warm and cozy. Wood finishes are appropriate even in the bathroom. Pay attention to the dark shades: wenge, bog oak, amaranth, black walnut.
Metallic luster is appropriate in decoration, furniture fittings, decor. In 2024, these were only the legs of sofas or tables, candlesticks and lampshades, in 2022 – wall cladding, partitions, large panels.
Marble is still in vogue, but now we turn our attention to interesting colors: pink, black, green. In brutal interiors, granite and sandstone are good. Onyx looks unusual.
Concrete texture is on trend, just like in 2024. To create a fashionable effect, concrete walls and ceilings are varnished or tiled with similar textures.
Velvet, suede and velor are pleasant to the touch and look luxurious. They are good as decor or upholstery. Carefully, it is easy to overdo it with them: if you choose a velvet sofa or headboard, give up curtains, bedspreads, armchairs and accessories made of this fabric.
Eco-style fashion is gaining momentum, so curtains, blankets, pillows and upholstery made from natural materials will be appropriate. Accessories made of burlap, linen, cotton are suitable. If you want your garment to be easy to care for and to last longer, choose fabrics with a proportion of man-made fibers.
Leather furniture, accessories and decor will not give up their positions in 2022. Look out for the trendy terracotta shades.
Glass partitions and furniture make the interior light and airy. They will help out if there is not enough space or natural light.
Style and layout
Laconic interiors are in trend. This does not mean that you need to limit yourself to an ascetic minimum: in order for the interior to fall into this trend, it is enough to remove small decorations and unnecessary items from it.
A mixture of Scandinavian and Japanese style
In recent years, Scandinavian style has been at the height of fashion. It is characterized by cool tones in decoration, calm furniture and accessories, natural materials. In 2022, it will be mixed with the Japanese style: they will add more wood and warm natural tones, and reduce the amount of details.
He does not give up positions. Wooden floors and furniture, natural fabrics, baskets of algae or vines, many plants – this is the formula for a fashionable and comfortable eco-interior.
This trend is due to the fact that apartments in cities are getting smaller. The living room has to be combined with the kitchen, and the bedroom with the study. The owners of small apartments are rescued by transforming furniture and lightweight partitions.
Light transparent partitions are placed instead of blank walls. They divide space, keep out odors and muffle sounds. But, unlike capital partitions, they let light through and decorate the interior.
Combining bedroom and bathroom
A trend for large apartments and houses with at least two or three bathrooms. The master’s bathroom is combined with the bedroom – the main partitions are removed or replaced with light sliding ones. The result is a spacious room that sets you up for self-care, relaxation and rest.
This trend applies to kitchen sets. Designers recommend installing hidden handles or push mechanisms to make the kitchen look more concise.
Legs of sofas and armchairs, handles on dressers and wardrobes – in 2022 they are made to look like metal. Gold and brass are considered especially fashionable, but chrome elements will be appropriate. To prevent the interior from getting cold, metal parts are used in dosage and combined with wood.
Beds with soft headboards are one of the leading furniture trends for 2022. It is difficult to overdo it here: both high and low headboards, with a carriage tie or laconic quilting, will do. Materials – leather, suede, velvet, velor.
An armchair or sofa in the style of the 70s will set the mood in the interior. It is not necessary to decorate a room with only such furniture, one object is enough.
Fashion for minimalism dictates furniture design. Sophisticated armrests, an abundance of pillows and upholstery in three or four colors are a thing of the past.
An interesting trend is the LED strip under the cabinets. Kitchen cabinets, chests of drawers, cabinets are hung on the wall, and lights are attached under them. When it is turned on, it looks like furniture is floating in the air.
The more green plants in the apartment, the better. They are placed on the floor, stands and window sills. A more expensive option is vertical gardening: plants replace the decoration and decor of the walls. But even a few pots with flowers are enough to get into this trend.
An interesting trend of the new year is colored shells: green, brown, red. They are glass and ceramic. If you plan to renovate the bathroom, take a closer look: such a detail will make the interior memorable, even if the finish is laconic.
Mirror surfaces visually expand the room, make it lighter. Therefore, mirrors as an element of decor are popular in the new year: they are hung instead of paintings, used as panels. A practical option is mirrored cabinet doors and large mirrors in hallways, bedrooms, living rooms.
