The hottest interior trends of Summer 2022
Together with our Interior Stylist, Vicki Foster, we’ve got plenty of styling tips and tricks to make sure you’re nailing all of these summer interior trends.
As we continue through the summer months, the interior design trends of 2022 continue to get hotter. It’s time to get ready for the new season and take a look at the trends that are set to dominate interiors this year.
For summer 2022, outdoor living is another one of the big interior trends.
This means adding more windows to your home so that you can enjoy your garden from inside the house. Let that morning sun shine through into your kitchen in the morning and you’ll fall even more in love with your home.
Self-care is one of the hottest interior design trends of 2022. You’ll see more and more spaces dedicated to self-care in your home.
These spaces are meant to be used as a retreat from work and stress, so they should have calming colours and textures like warm woods and soft fabrics.
Self-care spaces are designed to help you relax and recharge – and they can be as simple as a sunlit nook in your bedroom or an entire room dedicated to meditation and yoga practice.
You can even create a space within your existing home that helps you feel calm and rested by incorporating natural elements like waterfalls or plants into the design.
It doesn’t have to be a large area just a quiet space to call your own, so whatever your budget this should be easily achieved.
Biophilic design is all about bringing nature into your home.
Whether that means installing a skylight with views of trees outside or filling your space with plants, this trend is all about incorporating nature wherever possible so that you can reap its benefits daily!
“Plants are not just gorgeous to look at and the perfect space filler, they also provide a natural air purifier for your home and help to lift your mood. As the Colour Physiology says - green is one of the most relaxing colours that restores your energy and helps clear your mind,” states Vicki.
Using natural elements in your home is becoming more and more popular every year, and 2021 was no exception. This trend will continue in 2022 as well – you’ll start seeing lots of greenery, plants, and even aquariums integrated into interior design.
Vicki recommends the following colours to consider when decorating: “soft greens, light blues, lemon yellows, shades of brown, pinks, bright oranges and creams.”
Maximising organisation is another major summer home decor trend in 2022.
Maximising your space means using every inch of your house efficiently so that you have everything at arm’s length when you need it most!
One of the standout colour trends of 2022 is definitely green.
You’ll want to welcome it into your homes with open arms as it has revitalising and harmonious appeal – perfect for those spaces in your home you like to retreat to, such as your living room or bedroom.
Plus there’s a shade for everyone… from sage green to emerald green, each will have the same effect.
Scandinavian style has been popular for quite some time, but it’s especially trendy right now because it uses an elegant simplicity that feels both modern and timeless all at once.
Scandinavian style is about neutral colours and minimalism. You’ll see lots of white walls and light wood floors, as well as lots of clean lines in the furnishings that mimic that of Scandinavian architecture.
If you like things to have a place and home and you enjoy keeping things tidy, this trend will be for you. Scandi style thrives on minimal clutter and making the most out of simple solutions to keep things in order.
You may be wondering how to achieve the perfect Scandinavian-inspired home, well we’ve enlisted the help of our Interior Stylist, Vicki Foster for some simple steps:
Minimalist design is another big trend for 2022.
It is all about choosing your pieces wisely – similar to Scandinavian styling. You’ll see lots of space between pieces of furniture – no clutter or overcrowding.
That’s why we’re seeing more of a pull towards open plan living with fewer walls separating rooms (or even rooms that don’t have any walls at all).
Minimalist designs go hand-in-hand with Scandinavian style, but they can also stand on their own. They’re characterised by simple lines and neutral colours that create an airy, open feel in any room.
It is all about letting your personality shine through with minimal distractions – and that’s what makes it so appealing.
A simple colour palette helps you focus on the things that matter most in your space (like your favourite art or photos), while clean lines allow everything else to fade into the background.
When done right, minimalist designs can be incredibly eye-catching.
With roots that date back to the ‘70s, curved furniture has now come back around again.
You may have noticed there’s been a shift towards rounded shapes in interiors to break up the boxiness of common room shapes.
More geared towards comfort and adding a level of softness, it’s easy to see the appeal of this trend.
Before the rise of curved furniture, mid-century modern furniture was all about straight, clean lines. This style is a throwback to designs from the ‘50s and ‘60s – think modern furniture but with a retro feel.
This style has been around for decades, but it’s making a comeback in a big way for 2022.
If you love bold colours, geometric shapes, and clean lines – you’ll love this trend.
From outdoor living to minimalist design and from utilising shades of green to the retro colours popular in mid-century modern style, there’s a trend everyone can get behind for 2022.
