After a tumultuous few years, the overarching trend for interior design is to create a harmonious escape from the outside world. Combining natural materials and nature-inspired colour palettes, you’ll find the colours and interior trends of 2022 are focused on improving our health and wellbeing.
Each year, leading paint and colour experts like Dulux, Farrow & Ball, and Benjamin Moore make predictions about the Colour of the Year 2022. From the sky blues to mellow sage, cheerful yellow to soft whites, the themes of optimism, positivity and tranquillity are evident.
The yellow we’ll be seeing in 2022 is a subdued sunshine hue. Thanks to its slightly muted tone, it’s not too overpowering. As a result, this colour is great for larger rooms and spaces with limited natural light.
Because of its brightness, when considering finishing touches, it can be paired with dark wood furniture. Soft furnishings inspired by Moroccan souks, featuring pale blues and soft reds and pinks also work well.
For the last few years, grey has been the neutral du jour, but in 2022 we’re seeing the return of white. Only this time, it’s a soft slightly chalky, off-white. This timeless and unassuming shade can be used in any room and will create a grounding and calming feel.
Thanks to its versatility it can be paired with virtually any colour and material. From creating a farmhouse-inspired kitchen to a decadent living room, cosy bedrooms to an inspiring home office. Add black and white photos or over-the-top art, statement rugs or vibrant soft furnishings.
