It’s the third year since people started working remotely and have been spending more time in their homes. This drives a strong desire to really create a space that is both visually appealing and functional.

According to Vogue, here is a list of Interior Design trends in 2022 that top interior designers all over the world are predicting to be “what’s in.”

Interior Design Trends in 2022

Nature-inspired surfaces and objects

“With more time spent indoors than ever before, we’re all seeking to strengthen our connection with nature. This has simultaneously inspired a resurgence in natural surfaces—think stoneware, terracotta, marble, and travertine being used across the board from backsplashes to bathtubs, furniture, and decorative objects. The raw, porous, imperfect nature of these organic materials adds depth, soul, and visual intrigue while also mimicking the calming, restorative ambiance of the outdoors. This lure back to nature has also sparked an interest in large trees at home, from the elegant black olive to Southern magnolias.” – Athena Calderone

Sculptural and Curved furniture

“A curved form is subconsciously read as safe, friendly, and welcoming. With everyone feeling a bit precious I think those softer shapes and angles will still be a big trend in 2022 in furniture as well as architecture.”- Sarah Sherman Samuel

Shades of Brown

“Neutrals will take a bit of a back seat in 2022 as people start to experiment with color again, but the palette will stay very close to hues you’d find in nature. We predict paint rollers will be dipped in rosy, terracotta tones, swathing rooms from wall to ceiling for a complete monochromatic moment that envelops you in its coziness.” – Athena Calderone

Upgraded outdoor furniture

“Outdoor furniture will become more sophisticated and refined as we continue to spend more time entertaining outdoors, and our patios become true extensions of our interior décor.” – Timothy Corrigan

Mixing materials and design styles

“The desire to have unique things that are not like everyone else’s is leading to an increase in mixing materials in furniture design. It is not uncommon to see case goods with wood, metal and stone elements all used in the same piece, to make them more unique and special.” – Timothy Corrigan

Leather furniture and upholstery

“Leather in rich tones offset cooler metals and have the ability to tell a story over time as they wear through use—we shouldn’t be afraid of age showing its face.” – Erick Garcia

Vintage and sustainable accents

“Whenever I can use vintage, I will. From a design standpoint, vintage is the protagonist of every room—it has the power to influence the storytelling and direction. Their patina brings a touchable texture and warmth to every space, not to mention a sacred sentimentality. But aside from their decorative propensity, these rare antiquities are stylishly sustainable. By repurposing the old, the damaged, the jagged into something new, we’re reducing our footprint while bringing a rich sense of history and spirit into a space.” – Athena Calderone

“Sustainability has become a major issue for everyone, as it should. Looking into the sustainability of everything is a must and it is really excellent that so many designers are trying to learn what the best materials are to use for the long-term health of our eco-system. Luckily, there is a lot to choose from!” – Robert and Cortney Novogratz for The Shade Store

Dual-purpose rooms

“As we get into another year of COVID variants, our living spaces continue to double as our workrooms, which is the new normal. The kitchen continues as the conference room and The Farmhouse Table is the new boardroom table.” – Kathryn M. Ireland

“Rooms will be designed for double duty; i.e. dining rooms walls lined with wine storage or books, guest rooms fitted with desks, bedrooms equipped with exercise equipment. As people spend more time in their homes, they expect the spaces to work harder for them.” – Timothy Corrigan

Venetian plaster and Limewash

“Living/antiqued plaster walls. Plaster finishes have been everything for a long time, but now we will start to see the prevalence of walls that evoke times past in a new way. Made by craftsmen who know how to achieve antiqued surfaces, walls will be the textured backgrounds of our historical, crumbling, dreams.” – Danielle Colding

Modern Grandmillenial

traditional interior design

“Trends for 2022 include the embracing of floral patterns, a sort of 1940s updated chintz vibe, resplendent in the memory of Mario Buatta, but in more contemporary palettes. The ‘grandmillennial’ look that was slowly infiltrating influencers and tastemakers in 2021 is now become more widespread, moving tastes back to a “more is more” look. But unlike our grandparents’ interiors, the feel is more curated with floral and damask-printed wallpapers becoming the backdrop for contemporary-shaped soft furnishings given an added touch of glamour with unexpected fringe and piping additions.” – Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Latest artworks

“Art collections focused on up and coming artists and artists of color. Gone are the days of high-brow art collecting dominating the scene. My clients are looking for fresh faces on the art scene. They also want collections that reflect the diversity of our world and the perspectives these artists offer.” – Daniele Colding

Bold patterns and colors

“I believe we will see a move away from neutrals and people will be using more vibrant colors and bold patterned fabrics. Citrus green and RAF blue are colors I think we will see a lot of.” – Marcus Barwell

“The years of dull and muted colors have given way to bright, joyful colors that put a smile on your face.” – Timothy Corrigan

Wallpaper continues to be a dominant element in interiors, with strong patterns and more textured materials being used to create spaces that envelop and cocoon you.” – Timothy Corrigan
