Even though 2022 is nearly over, it’s always a good time to breathe new life into a dreary home. Homeowners who are looking for a change can pull inspiration from the hottest trends that are shaking up the home design world.
Whether you’re selling a house or you’re trying to make your rental feel more like your own, these design ideas are a great place to start. Let’s take a look at the latest home interior design trends for 2022.
Shades of brown
Neutrals have a calming effect and provide a great foundation to build off. Shades of brown, be it deep like coffee or a light caramel, can make a room feel warm and inviting. They provide that coziness that stark white or dreary greys simply lack. You can use shades of brown as a base color for walls, furniture, and carpet, or you could use them as an accent color in an otherwise vivid room.
When you use natural materials in your designs, you’re bringing the great outdoors inside and giving the space an added layer of interest and warmth. The first thing you might think you’ll need to do is fill your home with plants and wood, which is certainly a good option, but that’s not the only option.
Materials like stone, rock, marble, travertine, or terracotta work wonderfully as backsplashes or floor tiles. Still, you could find decorative pieces of art or even furniture made from these materials as well.
Curved and sculptural furniture
We once filled our homes with clean, crisp lines because they made the house feel neat, tidy, and even modern. Well… things have changed, and people want to make their homes feel less sterile. Instead of the clean lines, people opt for furniture pieces that look like pieces of art. Sculptural and curved Furniture evokes a feeling that the space is a safe place to be and that one might even feel like they’re in an art gallery!
Plaster on the walls
When you coat your walls in plaster to achieve an antique, old-world feel, it’s always a good idea to hire someone experienced working with this material and the technique. Otherwise, the walls could look completely different than what you had in mind.
Note: Although this won’t have much of an effect on a home appraisal, it could be a deterrent for some buyers because it’s a matter of personal preference.
Textured fabrics and textures
With the stone, curved lines, and sumptuous shades of brown, the room will need some kind of texture to give the room some more personality. For example, if you have a beautiful leather couch in a deep chocolate brown, use cream-colored throw pillows in a soft fabric like velvet or faux fur. If your floors are made of travertine tile, use a jute rug to add texture and warmth. You get the idea.
It’s the little things in life that make people happy. For those who enjoy changing their environment from time to time, drawing inspiration from the latest interior design trends is a good place to start.
