Comfort and durability have become important elements of home interiors as we continue to spend more time in our homes due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Curved shapes, textures, and nature-inspired interiors are all trending in 2022. Basically anything that is comfortable, sustainable, warm, and durable is in.

Here are the latest interior design trends you can use in your home interior design projects:

Color Scheme

Darker color hues and warm colors such as earth color schemes (orange rusty, emerald green, sage, mustard yellow, pistachio, brown, camel, violet-red, caramel, cognac, bronze) are dominant this year. Dark paint can make a big impact in spaces large or small. These colors will make their way into our home decor this year and you will see them pop up everywhere. Bring these colors into your design space by updating your home interior paint color scheme, furniture, window treatments, accessories, and floor coverings.


Multi-Purpose Spaces

The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the way we use our total home areas and has forced us to use our homes in more multi-functional ways. With many people still temporarily or permanently working from their home and with no sign of going back to normal for a while, the way we use our homes has changed significantly. We will be finding ways to redesign our homes and include furniture pieces that help reestablish balance and augment the use of each space.

Having open space layout for your kitchen and living room isn't as comfortable anymore as it may have been before the start of the pandemic. Open-floor plans have proven to be less functional than divided spaces. Ultimately, the lack of privacy with open floor plans leads to a lack of functionality and productivity. Rooms will be re-designed for double duty. As people spend more time in their homes, they expect their home space to work harder for them. Our rooms now see daily multifunctional use, and people are customizing them to provide flexible and adaptive living spaces.
