Chocolate browns, camel, and caramels as well as natural surfaces like marble, terracotta, and stoneware. These organic materials, raw and porous, add visual intrigue and depth to living spaces.

In my previous blog, 5 COLOUR PALETTES TO INSPIRE YOU, I created a colour palette – Indulgent browns. The delicious colour tones of this palette is a great choice for a timeless look for modern home interiors. It is comfortable, calming, and versatile. It is about creating cocooning spaces that feel intimate and welcoming. As a result this gentle neutral palette will add warmth and sophistication to any living space.

Earthy Tones and Curved Furniture

This year’s top interior design trends are still focused on making us feel emotionally comfortable. Surrounding us with brown shades and earthy tones, nature-inspired surfaces, curvy furniture, anything that feels warm, soothing, comforting, and relaxed. As furniture becomes more tactile and sophisticated, curves and deep luxurious seats will become highlight features.

Vintage accents and sustainable materials serve as focal points in every space, bringing warmth and a sense of nostalgia. By repurposing the old, we have an opportunity to bring back history and spirit into the space.

Also, trends for 2022 include floral patterns, curated interiors, and damask-printed wallpapers that serve as the backdrop for soft furnishings.

Exotic and indigenous flora and fauna are incorporated into design elements.  Outdoor furniture becomes more refined as patios become extensions of inside spaces. Embrace mixing styles and materials to make your interior unique and special.

The dominant trend in interior design continues to be wallpaper, with strong patterns and textured materials to create a warm and welcoming feeling.

In addition, combine dark and moody with stainless steel, play with multicoloured colours and colour blocking, or combine white and cream with dark woods and washed linen textiles & black and white photography.


I hope you enjoyed reading my blog and found it inspiring in some way. Stay tuned for my next blog post about vintage accents in contemporary homes.
