Once the garlands are taken down and the last of the tinsel is swept up, your home becomes a clean slate once again. If you’re looking for ways to refresh your space in the new year, be sure to consider these interior design trends that are on the rise:
#1: Choosing Moody and Warm Colors
The hyper-clean, Scandinavian-inspired pure whites and grays that were so prominent over the last decade are well on their way out. In their place, moodier hues and warm tones are cropping up on everything from wall colors to backsplashes. Many homeowners are opting to do dramatic monotones from baseboard to ceiling in shades like emerald green, deep purple, or rust. This can have a major impact on the overall energy of a space, and can give a dull room life.
#2: Going Green
This trend picked up speed in 2022 and isn’t slowing down any time soon. Intentionally including greenery in room design is gaining popularity in every room of the house, not just spaces like living room corners or kitchen windowsills. Greenery adds an earthy, organic touch to a space and can make it feel more inviting. Best of all, nobody is keeping score on if you go faux — so if you don’t have a green thumb, there are high quality, realistic plants you can work with!
#3: Using Accent Colors
Even if you’re not ready to completely embrace jewel tones and all warm colors, adding in more splashy shades throughout a space is back en vogue. This can take form in everything from throw pillows to layered rugs to a bold art print. Adding in accent colors is a relatively risk-free way to try something new in your own home without committing to an all-encompassing paint job — and it can be a savvy way to step up your decor if you rent.
#4: Color Blocking
Bolder color selections are not limited to wall paint colors. Playful color blocking is a trend that’s on the rise, and it can include everything from kitchen islands to countertops to sofa colors and beyond. The idea, which is prominent in fashion styles currently, is to pair colors that are from opposite sides of the color wheel for an interesting, unexpected look.
#5: Incorporating Organization Into Design
Perhaps it’s the dedicated fan base of TVs shows about tidying up, or maybe it’s the fact that nearly everyone had to stay quarantined in their own homes for an extended period of time, but a well-organized space is top of mind for many homeowners these days. Features like glass-front cabinets and open shelving are losing the spotlight to thoughtfully designed drawer placement and closets as people lean into their desire for cleanliness and calmness.
