Our lifestyles have changed dramatically in the last couple of years, and interior design has responded in kind. In addition to visually pleasing updates, we’re continuing to see trends that make us more comfortable in our homes. As promised, here is a continuation of last month's blog post, and six more of the interior design trends for 2022 that I discuss with my Fairfield and Westchester clients.
Going out for a drink isn’t as simple as it used to be. So why not make drinking at home an experience? Whether you have a built-in, you’re using part of your Kitchen, a piece of furniture or a bar cart, make it a point to have some fun. Home bars have been very popular and this is a great time to get in the craft cocktail movement.
Bedrooms are getting more attention as we use them to do more than just sleep. Create a much-needed home sanctuary to read, watch TV and relax. Keep your design sparse with high quality and interesting materials. Maintain a tidy space and opt for colors that are soothing to the soul.
Straight edges feel more formal, while round edges feel relaxed, sexy and luxurious. Curvy sofas are an easy way to get in on this trend. They add both softness and a bit of drama to your room in an understated yet sophisticated way.
Statement lighting is eye-catching and unique. It instantly elevates your room to a new level. Opt for light fixtures with interesting shapes and materials worthy of being a centerpiece. Statement lighting is not only functional, it's beautiful too!
Home offices are a huge trend, and it’s still going strong. It seems the work from home movement is here to stay, at least on a hybrid basis. If you haven’t already, perhaps it’s time to treat yourself to a functional work space. Create a design that will inspire you and think about converting spaces that you hardly use, such as your guest bedroom.
Versatile Living Spaces
Let’s face it, not everyone has a dedicated room for a home office, let alone for two working people. Dining room tables make great desks because you can really spread out. All you need is some shelves or portable file holders that you can easily tuck away.
When it comes to interior design, it’s advisable to get in at the beginning of a trend and focus on the ones that have staying power. More importantly, do what works for you!
