As we approach year-end, it’s time, once again, to look at what’s new and exciting in interior design. Here are six of the new trends that I discuss with my Fairfield and Westchester clients and what we can all look forward to in 2022.
This year we’ll see a resurgence of vivid colors. Jewel tones, greens, russet, browns and yellows are on the rise for walls, furniture fabrics and decor.
Furniture made of earthy materials such as bamboo, wicker, rattan and wood are becoming more popular with sustainable and ethically sourced products on the rise. Even burl wood, used in the coffee table above, is having a comeback. Cerused wood, a finishing technique that enhances the beauty of wood grain, adds dimension in an understated yet impactful way.
All types of metals are trending, with black standing out as the most popular. Metals can be mixed and go with any design style. Depending on which metal you choose, it is a great way to add dimension and shine.
Texture is key to any design, and we are seeing it on fabric, walls, furniture and accessories. Cozy fabrics that are furry and nubby and embellished with fringe and decorative trim are also on the horizon.
While marble is classic, in recent years it lost favor to man-made materials like quartz. Now with the trend moving toward more natural substances, marble is having a big comeback, especially pieces with heavy veining
Bringing greenery inside connects you to nature and helps elevate a space. Adding more real plants promotes better air quality and good health, and has an overall soothing effect.
