Interior Design Trends in 2022

2021 was a year for being braver with colour trends. The global pandemic and lockdown meant our homes became, more than ever, our places of safety, comfort, and calm. So, it’s no surprise that the colour trends for 2022 continue to reflect this need for our spaces to feel cosy. 

In previous years grey was considered a daring choice, and soon became a staple in a lot of homes, but is that still true? Is grey still considered a trendy choice, or is it time to explore a new palette altogether? 

Speaking in broad strokes (pun intended), we’re seeing a shift away from grey and white to more energetic shades like reds, pinks, yellows and greens which are making a comeback in the world of interiors. 

Nowadays, it’s all about colours that make you feel good. Forget being on-trend really, the trend is to just go with what you love, create rooms filled with colours that reflect your personal style, and give you an uplift every time you enter them. 

So, whether you are redecorating, or just looking for some ideas to possibly test out a new colour scheme, here’s some inspiration. 

Rich Blues

Blue is such a grounding, familiar colour that there’s no surprise we are drawn to it year after year, and this year it’s deep blues that are looking to be the most on-trend. 

For a room with a welcoming feeling, a deep, rich blue is hard to beat. It pulls off dark grey’s trick of making a space feel cosy and it’s a calming colour that invites relaxation. 

And it’s about really embracing the darker shades, not just bringing it into a neutral space with furniture, or a feature wall. If you are still hesitant, start your transformation in a cloakroom or small bedroom, since richer colours work well in such spaces, despite the myth that only light colours should be used in smaller spaces. 

Warm Summery Tones

There has been a rise in uplifting shades this year (unsurprisingly). Yellows, tangerines and baby pinks, are all seeping into interiors in a very sophisticated, grown-up way. In their more muted tones, this palette is very pleasing, especially when used on all walls rather than just a feature wall.

Nature Inspired Greens

2021 was a big year for getting back to nature and the appeal of the outdoors quickly transformed how we were decorating our homes, even in the cities. It’s no surprise then that a big colour trend for 2022 is green. 

Try green in rooms that lead directly to the garden to subtly blend the colours of indoor and out. Quieter shades are better for a whole wall, but upholstered furniture also looks good in foliage tints. 

Is grey still a decorating favourite for you? Or have you fully embraced the new colour palette?

From helping clients pick wall colours and furniture, to helping them completely redesign their layout to make the most of the available space, there’s no doubt that Joanne’s personal touch is a crucial element in AIR’s success.
