You might say the 2022 is poised to be the year where natural makes a comeback in terms of home design. From natural and live edge wood furnishings to the use of stone on both the exterior and interior of the home to color palettes that let themselves to more earthy tones, interior design in 2022 is all about reconnecting with nature, even when inside the home.
- Overall flow is important. How you move about the room, how light moves about the room, how the space feels in general, really are all important to the overall aesthetic of the room. Not to mention the flow of a room lends itself to the general comfortability of that space. No one likes to be in a room that feels confining and cramped.
- Shades of brown are trending. As noted, more earth tone colors are making a strong come back this year. Brown is becoming a new favorite for many homeowners across the country. The great thing about the color brown (and the various shades therein) is that it really does complement any type of style or decor.
- Sculptural furniture is all the rage. And we’re not necessarily just talking about synthetically sculptured pieces. Especially with live edge tables or island tops, the natural curves lend themselves to both art and functionality, thereby escalating any kitchen or dining room.
Keeping Up with Home Design Trends: 2022
1. Harkening back to the traditional. 2022 isn’t just about all natural elements or embracing nature in terms of your home’s aesthetic. For some homeowners, it’s also about incorporating traditional elements into their home design. This could include for instance traditional details like crown molding or how about more nostalgic patterns as far as rugs and furniture.
3. Having a more rustic appeal. On one side of the spectrum we have the traditionalists, and on the other, those who prefer a more rustic look. This is especially where live edge furniture and solid wood tables really do come into play. It’s about using the inherent beauty and artisanal quality of a live edge slab to create a truly rustic appeal.
6. Focusing on family comfort.Again, as prompted by the pandemic, one thing that families realize is that the home really does need to be a center of comfort and well-being. To this end, homeowners are doing everything they can to make those homes even more comfortable and even more welcoming. What says comfort more than the warmth of a wood slab table or countertop?
