We asked the experts to reveal what awaits us in decorating this year. They saw beautiful materials, soft textures, comfort… Only things that feel good! Fashion does not stand still: it affects the fashion industry and interior design. Sometimes, a few details are enough to demonstrate your taste and make the situation more modern. But what is relevant today? We will talk about fashionable decor in 2022.
1- Accent mirrors
A mirrored canvas is a functional item that reflects its owner and visually expands the space of a room, and is a decorative element that can become an interior decoration. A mirror in an unusual frame can zone the room and accentuate a particular part of the room.
Natural materials do not lose their relevance. Choose a frame made of natural wood (not imitation!) or metal. The stabilized moss decor is still in fashion.
There was an increased demand for needlework, macrame, and unusual wood decor at the interior shows in Milan, Paris, and Copenhagen. The products must be neat, with brilliant colors to make the situation look stylish.
In 2022, boho style will not lose its popularity: decorative pillows with tassels, homespun rugs, and homemade dream catchers will help fill the house with coziness, as well as add ethnic touches to the atmosphere.
The love of plants has been an essential part of the atmosphere in the home for the past couple of years, and this trend continues unabated. At interior exhibitions, indoor flowers are used not only as tapeworms (you will not surprise anyone with this) but also in the form of compositions. Phytowalls and honorariums are still popular. Plants are also built into furniture – shelves, coffee tables.
Spread your houseplants throughout the space, not just on the windowsill, for an urban jungle effect.
4- Fancy vases
A designer vase can become a highlight of the interior if it has harmonious forms and attracts everyone’s attention. Tactility in design comes to the fore, so matte finishes are in fashion, making you want to touch the product.
If you want to give the atmosphere airiness and lightness, choose unusually shaped vases made of transparent and colored glass. If your choice is environmental friendliness and comfort, clay products are suitable. You can also use cans, enameled jugs, and even glass flasks as vases.
5- Branches, dried flowers, and wreaths
Not every person can afford to keep cut flowers in the house: fresh bouquets are expensive and require care. To be in trend and enjoy the beauty of nature every day, the room can be decorated with a bouquet of dried flowers: cereals (rye, wheat, pampas grass), cotton, lavender are in fashion today. But the rarer the plant you dry or buy, the more enjoyable your environment will be.
Branches and wreaths can be prepared independently by selecting and drying the material in a park or forest. Blanks are painted, decorated with flowers and cones, complemented with garlands.
6- Tableware collections
At the interior exhibition in Denmark, there is an emphasis on a collection of unusual tableware. It is believed that this move aims to re-evaluate the rituals of the house and eating. Kitchens without upper cabinets are gaining more and more popularity, and on open shelves, you can increasingly see not jars of cereals but an exhibition of picturesque plates and cups.
Kitchen decor in 2022 combines beauty and utility. Wooden boards made of precious wood, colored glass, earthenware jugs are fashionable.
7- Compositions on the wall
Ordinary collages and posters are no longer in vogue. A voluminous “exhibition” of paintings, photographs, watches, mirrors, and postcards looks much more interesting – in general, everything that tells your story and does not give the impression of randomly selected elements.
Composition on a plant theme may include a herbarium, a climbing plant, framed photographs. The culinary arrangement will showcase recipes, decorative plates, and a beautifully designed menu.
Interior decor makes the space more alive, and fashion trends help to “keep abreast” and fill the house with modern details.
8. The 80s are back!
We evoke this decade with furniture and accessories with sculptural, unusual, curved, or geometric shapes, or even sporting textures that stand out.
Of the ordinary. These retro objects full of personality contrast beautifully in our minimalist decors.
9. Quiet Comfort
The Japandi and Wabi-Sabi styles inspire uncluttered decors imbued with simplicity, softness, and warmth. The goal is to build a home where everything is oriented towards well-being. This is why we include more and more moving objects such as scented candles, soft rugs, cushions, deep armchairs, and sofas.
10. Responsible purchasing
Handicrafts trump those that are mass-produced and local purchases are given priority. Even department stores are taking the turn, making more and more room for artisans in their windows.
In addition, a new word is entering our decoration vocabulary: upcycling, which consists of recycling objects and materials considered as scrap to make quality items.
Return to this masculine material for its authentic side and its durability. Leather is available on chairs, armchairs, sofas, and footstools in classic and natural shades such as caramel, chocolate, and cognac.
12. Green Zone
We never tire of indoor plants, which we collect and pamper. They add life to the house and connect us with the outdoors. So why not give yourself little challenges, for example growing a more delicate plant or getting into cuttings?
13. Beautiful wood
Authentic and warm, wood imposes its charms more than ever in contemporary interiors. It is a flagship material, with main essences with blond tones. Think of pine and birch, in particular.
14. Plush Texture
We let ourselves be enveloped by wool and curly cotton, whose soft and comforting fluffy aspect we appreciate. This winter, these essential materials can be found on sofas, armchairs, throws, cushions, and even curtains!
By opting for bouclé fabrics in pale hues, we are sure to create a look fresh enough to keep it all year round.
15. Luxurious Linen
Comfortable and breathable, linen is one of the most ecological and sustainable textiles available. Stonewashed linen is preferred for its worn look and extraordinary softness to dress the bed. Abandoning neutral tones, we dare colorful bedding items of sage, cayenne, lilac, and terracotta, for example.
16. The farmhouse evolves
We continue to love this style, but we reinvent it by flirting with the bohemian spirit. We integrate more textures: in addition to linen and cotton, we introduce woolens and velvets. It is also brightened up with color accents rather than being limited to the range of whites and beiges.
17. Colored glass
Tinted glass in different colors is a star choice for furniture, light fixtures, and small accessories. Our interest in glossy surfaces that reflect light well is growing.
18. Chic taps
In the lead position for our subsequent renovations, two-tone faucets: white and gold or black and white. Moreover, the white finish is emerging as a new successful player in faucets.
The arched shape invites itself into contemporary architecture (doors, recesses) and furnishings. By their softness, the curves tickle our sense of touch, soothe us and encourage us to contemplate. That’s why we see them everywhere.
If there is one theme with all the experts, it is nature. Stones with mineral hues and natural fibers such as bamboo, wicker, and sisal are more than ever welcome in our interiors. We appreciate their quality and the feeling of well-being they give us.
We quietly question the open area, so famous for many years. People feel a need for privacy within the home. In particular, they want to benefit from a private space when teleworking.
Thin or wide, vertical or horizontal, embroidered or woven, they invest in bedding, cushions, and curtains. We love their classic and timeless look.
23. A tidy house
By spending more time at the house during the pandemic, we took the opportunity to clean up and identify our organizational problems. And this movement is growing. We seek to declutter our environment and focus on what matters most by opting for functional products.
As a result, we see a strong craze for shelving, bookcases, multifunction furniture, and everything that makes the home smart.
24. Small checks
Forsaken for a time in favor of rectangular and large-format tiles, four in. x 4 in. Ceramic or porcelain stoneware tiles are back in service because their retro side seduces us.
