If you’re as obsessed with design trends as we are, you’re going to want to read this one. Good Housekeeping put together a list of the top 20 interior design trends of 2022 and what to look out for in this upcoming year. So whether you’re dreaming of a renovation or just like feeling inspired, here’s what experts say you should look out for.
- Home Libraries Are In
All of that quarantining definitely forced us to find some magic within our own space – and what easier way to do that than picking up a book? Over the past two years, interior designers have been seeing a rise in big feature home libraries. With over 123 million views on the subject alone on TikTok, there’s plenty of room to get inspired, no matter how big your space is. Check out how homeowners have taken their library all different routes, from sculptural to bookish to something even Beauty and the Beast would be proud of.
- Texture is Key
Neutral color schemes will always be around, but what better way to play them up than by adding in some texture? Shaggy pillows, velvet accents and grooved furniture are just some ways in which designers have been seeing the homemaker refresh their space. Not to mention how easy it is to switch up the feel with a few accented texture pieces rather than repainting or making big, expensive choices. Here are some easy ways to incorporate texture into your space on a budget!
- 3D Art Really Pops
Designers have been noticing an uptick in 3D art in the home this past year – and no, we don’t mean mounted taxidermied animal heads. There are tons of ways to incorporate art that really jumps out at you, from finding staple pieces at thrift stores to bigger budget items from your favorite artists. Check out this list of ideas to get you started!
- The 1970s Are Coming Back
If you love velvet, shag, sage, mustard and feeling groovy baby, then start incorporating the 70s into your home space. Mid-century furniture trademarks, like peg legs on cabinets and tables, tweak wood tones and the above-mentioned, highly textured pieces, are going to continue finding their place in the home as we enter 2023.
- Multifunctional Spaces
Does this surprise anyone? If the pandemic taught us anything about our living spaces, it’s that they need to be versatile. Maybe the treadmill being tucked in your office space isn’t actually out of place – now it’s a perfect workout opportunity during your lunch break. Does your dining room have the perfect place to tuck a homework desk for the kiddos? Going forward, the mindset is going to be “if you can fit it, make it work.” Embrace the multifunctionality, designers.
