Neutrals & naturals

Think beiges and natural earth colours as we celebrate our homes being our sanctuaries. This extends to accessories and prints too, with organic, natural objects, materials and prints taking centre stage.

And if you’re longing for alternatives to the ever-popular grey, consider sand tones and subtle creams to tap into this natural and eco chic interior trend.

Parquet laminate

With over 700k Instagram posts of #parquet, this style of flooring has been rising in popularity over the last few years and it shows no signs of slowing down.

Wood parquet flooring comes with a price tag and ongoing maintenance, but now with parquet laminate you can get the look for a fraction of the cost.

Sustainable materials

There is ever more focus on sustainability in our homes, from the products we use to how we design a space. Think reclaimed, recycled, pre-loved, and ethically sourced. And if you’re making more environmentally friendly choices for your home, don’t forget your flooring.

Monochrome vinyl

Monochrome has been increasing in popularity when it comes to flooring, particularly patterned vinyl – which is durable, easy to look after and suitable for every room in the home. A monochromatic floor creates a multi-dimensional appearance, and the black and white colour scheme makes it easy to match with any interior style.

There are also different patterns available, including classic chequers and chess boards, but why not also consider introducing bold weaves, patterned mosaic, slate-effect, or other geometric shapes, such as diamonds and stripes?

Patterned carpets

As people start to look for alternatives beyond neutral interiors, colourful or patterned carpets are rising in popularity. Patterns like Loch Lomond’s Drumpellier, along with patterns that likely include stripes, chevrons, checks, tartan, and tweed will continue to be popular in 2022.

Also, jewel colours, such as turquoises and emerald greens, are among the fastest growing colours of carpet, so we could see these tones being incorporated into patterned carpets in 2022 and beyond.

Black is the new black

Black is back! Or did it ever really leave? Black is clean, classic, and not to be overlooked. In interior design black can be quite an intimidating colour and so people typically go for more neutrals throughout the home, especially with walls or large furniture.

But if you’re looking to keep your home on trend, we would recommend black accent furniture first to test the waters, like a new dressing table. Or if you want to make more of a statement, why not choose dark flooring, such as a black carpet or stunning dark oak-effect vinyl.

Accent layering

Adding accents and textiles creates a sense of elegance. Due to the 70’s retro revival we are seeing all over interior design, velvet is one of the most prominent comebacks! Layering different textures, using different materials, adding pops of rich colour, or showcasing a vintage print are all simple ways that accent layering can be achieved.

Velvet is a fabric that can sometimes be tricky to style but beautiful when done correctly – when looking to add a touch of velvet elegance to your home, consider what other fabrics that item will be paired with. Velvet accent chairs, headboards, cushions, or stools are a great place to start experimenting with this luxurious material.
