Are you curious about what the future will bring in terms of home and garden design? We have great news! 2022 brings many cool microtrends, but it also embraces some of our favourite long-playing ones that we fell in love with over the past few years. If you’ve already furnished your garden pod, you don’t have to worry as this year’s trends will still be relevant in the foreseeable future. But, if you want to redecorate or even make minor adjustments, you might want to take a look at the following design ideas that will become a thing in 2022.
Before we discuss the colour trends that will mark 2022, let’s take a quick look at the colours that people loved in 2021 – a year that was marked by the effects of the pandemics bringing many changes to people’s lifestyles. Many of us were stuck indoors for long periods, so we had to transform our homes into a relaxing a cosy place. This need was reflected in the colours that we chose for our walls, for our furniture, and other accessories. Therefore, in 2021 we saw a lot of neutral bases, warm colours, soft pastel tones, light serene blues, and different shades of grey. Brighter colour hues were not ignored completely, as they were able to bring some of that much-needed cheerfulness and energy into our spaces.
2021 was also the year the experts behind Pantone decided that two colours are worthy of the title ‘Color of the Year’ – PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray (a soft and calming pebble grey) and PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating (a cheerful and bright shade of yellow). Two colours that work great together and that can be easily used to decorate any space.
So what should we expect for 2022? Experts realized that people thrive in calm and relaxing environments and that the palettes of neutral shades are not just versatile but also beneficial. So, in 2021 we will probably see a lot of muted tones, shades of grey, and even some black and white.
If you’ve watched Billie Eilish’s recent videos, you can probably guess that the most important colour of 2022 will be beige. In fact, Dulux, a popular brand of paint gave their Brave Ground the title ‘Color of the Year 2022’. If you’re not a fan of beige, interior design experts bring us many beautiful colours to inspire us and to make us love our surrounding environment even more. Let’s take a look at Pantone’s most important colour trends that will mark 2022:
You can use this calming colour to paint your interior walls as it can be a perfect backdrop for any type of interior décor.
