Color can massively effect mood and well-being - fact! With brighter shades associated with a naturally uplifting effect, this season feeling good and making your home look amazing has never been so easy or fun. Use variations of the primary palette to add interest, optimism, and vibrancy to every space - this trend’s all about color blocking and expressing your home’s personality through active color therapy.

‘Whether you’re taking a maximalist approach or opting for bold pops of color, mixing super-bright with slightly more muted tones will keep things just the right side of grown-up,’ advises Helen Marsh, head of communications, Carpetright (opens in new tab).

‘Color engages with people’s emotions. Moving into 2022 and then into 2023 we’ll begin to see stronger, more saturated shades emerge. Our digital world seems to have heavily influenced the designers. In the home it’s all about making things so they can be adapted; spaces to evolve,’ says Kathryn Lloyd, Crown paints (opens in new tab) color consultant.

‘There has been a move away from sharp rectangular bed designs, towards headboards with adventurous curves. This shape lends itself particularly well to both pastel and bold coloured velvets, creating a visual contrast when situated in a pared-back bedroom scheme,’ say the design experts at Button & Sprung (opens in new tab).

3. Natural textures and materials

Embrace slow living and bring the raw simplicity and sensory calm of nature into your home with honest materials and tactile textures in an effortless palette of calming neutrals. This mindful home trend is balanced, considered and sensory stimulated, and one of the biggest living room trends of 2022, too.

Everlasting dried flowers and dyed and dried grasses remain hugely popular decorative accessories, working in harmony alongside fresh and faux house plants, to further blur the boundaries between outside-in living.

‘In 2022, we will see an increased usage of natural materials - from decorative elements to furniture itself. We'll also see calm, nature-inspired colors and textures become more prevalent, especially in communal spaces like the living room. Earthy textures, organic natural shapes, raw materials, and greenery will all be elements that ground the home for design longevity,’ says Milwaukee-based interior designer Anna Franklin of Stone House Collective (opens in new tab).

4. Sanctuary shades

Pale shades that evoke a magical twilight glow lend a quiet elegance and alluring beauty, while offering flexibility for use throughout a variety of rooms.

Cathryn Sanders, head of creative, Earthborn Paints, explains: ‘Color is a powerful way to create a mood in any home, a mood that aligns with how you wish to feel whilst spending time in that particular room. Our Lily Lily Rose is a romantic, playful color which offers great depth whilst adding an air of style and allure. This beautiful shade will create a homely, comforting sanctuary where you can switch off and relax.’

Catharina Björkman, lifestyle expert, Contura (opens in new tab), provides her Scandi-inspired tips on how to win at winter wellbeing: ‘Home is your sanctuary. Knowing that there is a calming space to come home to is a pleasing and positive thought. You can create an uncluttered, inviting space by using neutral tones (paint or wallpaper) to add to the sense of peace, while adding textured soft furnishings such as rugs and blankets can bring dimension - and more coziness - to the room. A roaring fire, soft lighting (lamps and fairy lights as opposed to ceiling lights), scented candles, blankets, cushions, and warm slippers all make for a more zen-like environment.’

5. Sculptural vases

In response to the Insta ‘shelfie’ movement, stunning DIY vases and vessels have become fun extrovert personalities in their own right, showcasing abstract forms and voluptuous curves in a plethora of bright and breezy colorways and patterns.

This one’s hardly a surprise is it? Dining table-cum-home office hub sound familiar anyone? Ideal for homes that are limited on space, or for those who crave extra practicality, multifunctional furniture will continue to become star staple pieces for the modern home.

‘Single use spaces are a thing of the past, and now is the time to make the most of every inch of our homes. Whether it’s having double purpose rooms or multi use furniture with innovative storage solutions, modern room-dividing tactics are here to stay. Why not take a look at the vertical space your room offers, and invest in some shelving, ladders and platforms to add layers to your interior. Mirrors are a brilliant choice to incorporate as they not only look great aesthetically but also help to reflect light in the room and open up small spaces,’ says Marc Epstein, interiors expert and managing director, CARME Home (opens in new tab).

Japandi combines the simplicity of Japanese style and the functionality of Scandinavian design. This style embraces the Japanese concept of Wabi sabi which, in simple terms, means to find beauty in imperfection, and the Scandinavian concept of hygge which can be defined as any place that embodies comfort, cosiness and a general sense of wellbeing.

Look out for oriental designs featuring Japanese inspired florals, cranes or interlocking geometrics to transform your space with an escapist sense of serenity.

Paula Taylor, color & trend specialist at Graham & Brown (opens in new tab) comments: ‘Teien has been inspired by the simplicity and elegance of the Japandi trend fusing both Scandinavian and Japanese styles together. It creates an effortlessly timeless feel that harnesses that zen feeling. This is perfect to create the Japandi ethos combining minimalistic references with hints of the orient.’

Ben White, design expert at Swyft says: 'I thinkthatminimalism will prevail as key to our interior design in 2022. The notion of decluttering isnow moreimportant than ever with people continuing to work from home. The freedom tomove around yourliving spaces unencumbered by unnecessary furniture or knickknacks will be key.'

In 2022, pendant lighting is set to take on a whole new direction with statement designs that explore individuality, form and function.

‘Enabling a deep warming hue, with variations in color and texture, the use of glass in lighting becomes more experimental. From ridged design, a substantial trend for 2022, to bubble-like spheres, glass can be used to create truly show-stopping centrepieces in any residential or commercial space. Glass configurations will grow louder and prouder over the coming year,’ says Ian Cameron, creative director, Cameron Design House (opens in new tab).

9. Modern pastoral

The trend for cottage core adopts a more modern pastoral element in 2022, as consumers crave a simplified, slower lifestyle in reaction to the frantic daily living that advances in technology have enabled. Think less shabby chic ditsy floral and more color block pastels and contemporary checks for a fresh take on a modern country-infused aesthetic.

‘Whilst you can easily make a coffee in a click of a button these days, we’re now seeing a huge trend for people using more traditional pour over coffee makers that require time and effort, because actually the process itself is a romantic and enjoyable start to your morning. So I guess we can expect this trend of creating a slower, romanticized life for yourself continuing, with comfort and coziness being key,’ says Jessica Hanley, founder, Piglet in Bed (opens in new tab).

Curve appeal continues to dominate indoors with soft, cocooning shapes enveloping our spaces with a comforting sense of security and aesthetic flow.For an easy decorating idea that will soften your scheme whilst adding a contemporary dimension, why not paint a wall arch?

‘Shaped boucle sofas and cut-out armchairs make a statement while ornamental pieces in mixed metals instantly elevate their surroundings. A palette of monochrome is softened by textured neutrals and new abstract works, which celebrates the curved lines of the human body,’ says Debbie Drake, design director, Dunelm (opens in new tab).

Robert Stephenson, Sedilia (opens in new tab) founder, says: ‘As our world becomes more sculptural, rounded and organic shapes are appearing in many fields from architecture to cars, as well as in more everyday objects. The adaptability of upholstered furniture makes it an ideal medium for exploring and developing this trend.’

‘As we welcome guests back into our homes and gardens, our attention turns to the art of table dressing,’ say design experts at MatchesFashion (opens in new tab). ‘The key to creating a rustic yet refined tablescape is to mix up plates, table linen and glassware from a variety of different labels, while adhering to a complementary colour palette. We have seen a growth of +47% for Table Top sales this year, with Plates being the #1 category and the biggest growth is seen across Placemats and Tablecloths which have grown +168%.’

International interior designer, Penny Morrison (opens in new tab) agrees: ‘Table dressing will continue to be immensely popular with hand made plates, matching mats, table cloths and candlesticks in several sets to ring the changes.’

Sleep health was big news in 2021, and we’re not hitting the snooze button on this well-being trend just yet. Endeavouring to create the ultimate sleep experience is a key focus for consumers and retailers as we consciously adopt a more mindful approach to living.

Fabric entrepreneur, Sonal Keay, This is Linen (opens in new tab), predicts that luxury linen and ‘well-bedding’ will be the next big thing. She says: ‘Lockdown has focussed our attention on the home and filling it with the best quality fabrics, which provide physical and sensory benefits – I like to call it ‘well-bedding’. Consumers want the best, natural and sustainable fabrics and are looking for the ultimate comfort in their bedding. Linen ticks all these boxes and looks gorgeous too.’

Consider a green bedroom scheme, to elevate the well-being dream even further.

Largely down to its association with the natural, the color green represents growth, renewal and harmony. Given the ongoing turbulence provided by the pandemic, the need for these qualities is greater than ever, so it’s unsurprising that green has been chosen as 2022’s color of the year by a number of paint brands. If you’re not feeling up to repainting the walls, however, there are plenty of ways to work the trending tone into your existing décor. Faux plants give you the chance to bring the great outdoors to your living space without any worry of upkeep. You’ll get all the harmonious greenery you’re after but with none of the upkeep that comes with live plants. Popping your faux plant into a stylish planter will elevate your interior design further, keeping the feel of the outdoors, but with an added touch of sophistication,’ says design experts at Madison and Mayfair (opens in new tab).

In lockdown we reclaimed the outdoors as an extension of our homes, and this year it’s all about adding some zingy, fiesta inspired zest and stylish interior comforts to utilize these precious spaces throughout each and every season. Outdoor living spaces are set to get colorful, cozy and seriously chic!

‘Maximalism is key for adding year-round warmth to our gardens and balconies no matter what the weather,’ says Nadia McCowan Hill, resident style advisor, Wayfair (opens in new tab). ‘Bright colors, clashing prints and cheerful decor add splashes of personality that will keep you out long after the sun sets. Snuggle up in vibrant textiles, set the mood with cosy lighting and share a drink by the fire.’

'As people continue how to navigate connections during this new normal, they are looking to create comfort that works as effortlessly indoors as it does outdoors. Adding dimension to the living spaces is important - incorporating warm colors, rich textures, and softness is crucial for that sense of comfort and normalcy, especially as we enter a new year with the pandemic still with us,' says AlexGibson, founder of home decor and textile design brandSien+ Co (opens in new tab).

‘Making a home feel cozy and welcoming isn’t just good for humans! Whether it’s a tiny velvet sofa pet bed so our pooches can twin with us or quirky pet toys that are almost as cute as our fur babies, this novelty trend is one our best friend will love as much as we do,’ says Nadia McCowan Hill, resident style advisor, Wayfair (opens in new tab).
