“With supply chain problems and a growing concern on the environment, I believe the celebration of one-of-a-kind finds will become an increasingly essential trend in the new year,” says Sara Hillery of Next Wave. “Vintage treasures are not only a greener alternative for design thanks to upcycling, but they’re also full with one-of-a-kind elements that are difficult to replicate.”

Vintage shopping is not only cost-effective and environmentally friendly, but it also adds character to a room. “Furniture choices are a crucial aspect of celebrating our uniqueness in our homes,” Hillery explains. “Just as a freshly painted antique indicates a value of the past while also creating a vibrant and playful environment, an ancient object with wonderful patina expresses a love and respect for history and tale.” You can be certain that none of your neighbours will have the same thing as you!

  • Ample Natural Resources

Rodrigo Albir, the founder of Studio RODA, feels that natural materials will be prioritised in 2022, particularly in living rooms. He tells House Beautiful that “living room design trends are following the revolt against rapid fashion, now aiming for durability and timelessness.” “People are looking for a more responsible approach to design that will allow their living spaces to “live longer” by including components that encapsulate their surroundings.”

“Where the living room shows natural wood blended with travertine, resulting in a relaxing, natural environment that balances with the classic Mediterranean façade of its Coral Gables neighbourhood, while staying updated,” says the designer of Villa Valencia.

  • Accents in black

According to Channa Alvarez, an interior designer for Living Spaces, “black accents and hardware will be a prominent house trend we’ll see in 2022.” It’s a terrific technique to give more austere settings some edge and depth:

  • Using Natural Light

In 2022, we believe that multi-functional living spaces with access to daylight and views will continue to be important in apartment living “Deborah Berke Partners partner Stephen Brockman says.

“Given how much time we spend at home these days,” Brockman explains, “large windows and high ceilings are critical—they enhance views to the outside and provide abundant daylight, which are both effective stress relievers that never go out of style.” Brockman demonstrated the impact of this in a New York City bedroom at Jolie, a condominium complex located at 77 Greenwich Street.

“For the main aspects of your home, such as paint colours and huge sofas, choose light, neutral hues, and integrate black accents for contrast,” she suggests. “Black elements, such as lamps, can really serve to enhance and provide depth to a space. Even replacing existing items like side tables or tv cabinets with black handles will provide a spark of contrast to a room.”

  • Textured Textiles

Designer Julia Longchamps shouts, “Bring on the textured fabrics!” “Velvets, sherpa, and boucles are the ‘it’ materials for 2022,” she says, either as a result of a year and a half spent getting warm at home, or as a result of heightened attention to detail. And it’s not without reason: “Cozy textiles not only feel great, but they also look great. Fringe will also take centre stage on furniture next year, particularly sofas and ottomans.”

  • Rooms That Can Be Used in a Variety of Ways

“The pandemic forced us to recognise the value of the ‘house’ as a safe haven,” designer Alice Dahbura-Borges said. “We will continue to see a need for adaptability in the house where one area can be modified and moulded for numerous activities: a dining table or kitchen island can double as a desk,” she predicts

  • Using Dark and Earthy Tones Together

I’m anticipating a move from dark and moody to rich and deep in 2022 “Metal + Petal co-founder Jade Joyner forecasts. “Right now, I’m particularly into tone on tone. I’m seeing a lot of brown, copper, and earthy tones mixed in with black and grey.”

The designer goes on to say “Burl wood, as well as really sculptural pieces, are having a moment right now. Curved sofas and soft-lined chairs are popular. Hammered metals have a strong following and will continue to do so in 2022. Any room can benefit from the addition of a fantastic hammered metal chair.

  • Bars for Your Living Room

Living room bars and drink trolleys, according to designer Emma Green, will be huge in 2022. “This trend began during the lockdowns and has continued unabated as we’ve all grown accustomed to staying at home more,” she explains. “A bespoke bar developed by Emma Green Design and constructed into an underused alcove can be seen in this living area. This innovative use of space gives this adults-only entertainment area a real purpose. The deep navy blue complements the lounge’s neutral greys, as well as the antique mirrored back and all of her clients’ lovely glasses.”

There are 9 more houseplants!

“Wellness in buildings is becoming increasingly crucial to the developer and the occupier,” says Sara Ianniciello, director of design at Whitehall Interiors. Obviously, “You may anticipate to see more living walls and hanging plants in amenity spaces and houses because indoor plants have a relaxing impact and produce clean air.”

  • Marble aplenty

Sire Design’s founder and creative director, Eilyn Jimenez, says “Bold, heavy stones have made their way into the design world and are here to stay. Interior design will feature a lot of rough, rustic, and fresh slabs—and you can never have too much marble.”
