Would you like to know how to make your home the most stylish and trendy in 2021 and 2022?
Here you will get information about the latest main trends in interior design and the insights of trends development.

All the trends can be divided into 2 categories:

  • long term trends - these are with us not the first season and they are going to be relevant in the next few years.

  • microtrends - they were developed under the influence of 2021 and a global pandemic.
These are the latest tips for your interior to be in trend in 2021 - 2022
  1. Use of basic colors in the interior
During pandemic we spent much more time at home and the bright colors might start annoying for anyone.
A modern home today is the place of relaxation, where you can be covered in calmness and comfort.
Therefore, many people liked the neutral palette of natural shades.


The long term trend includes the basic colors:

  • Achromats, such as black, white and shades of gray, as well as muted tones. All of them can supplement and diversify the base.
  • Beige is the most relevant color as a base, both in cold and warm shades.


There are also micro-trends in colors:
  • Classic blue was the 2021 favorite. It can be assumed that the whole palette of blue will remain in the trendy color palette for the 2022 interior.
2. Keep it to minimalism
The global trend during pandemic tend to be a de-clutter and getting rid of old non-functional things. We can see this trend not only in a wardrobe but also in the interior.
A modern apartment needs to have a minimal decoration and functional use of the furniture. The presence of air and free space in the apartment is the main trend and a tendency to which many people tend to nowadays.

2 a. Select the furniture and decoration of interesting and unusual form.
Minimalism is the style that requires modern, relevant solutions. It is desirable that at least one thing in the interior be created by a designer. If the budget does not allow, you can limit yourself to analogues. But it is important that they have an interesting shape. Otherwise, the design will look unfinished and too simple.

2 b. Be minimalistic in choosing the colors of your walls, furniture and decoration.
A soft palette in beige and gray is very relevant today in a modern minimalism.

2 c. The principle of "Less is more" keeps staying in trend.
The principle of reasonable consumption reinforces the trend. This is mindful shopping: the desire to avoid waste and impulse purchases. In order to follow this principles you do not need to decorate all the walls, but only mark one wall with an accent: make an accent wall or add paintings and other accessories.
3.Use natural materials
There’s an increasing awareness in having natural pieces.

The most popular textures are stone: onyx, marble, granite and wood. The main trend tends to use the wood in light colors. Natural materials are used in decoration and furniture. They are especially good as accents. It can be wood paneling on the wall or floor with a natural stone effect.

Elements such as cork walls or hump curtains will highlight the interior design trends 2022 season.

Light wood furniture is also at its peak. Coffee tables with a stone top or a solid stone kitchen island will be the accents in the kitchen area.

Textiles will complement the overall picture: linen and cotton, as well as ceramics. The micro trend here is muted unpolished vases.
4. Create equipped workplace
During the pandemic, the apartment became more than just a house. It has became a gym, work space, recreation and hobby area. That's why the functionality of the premises has expanded.

The pandemic has shown that working at the kitchen table or on the sofa is not only inconvenient, but also dangerous to health. At a time when the majority of employees switched to remote work, the question of equipping a comfortable home office becomes acute.

If no renovation is planned soon, try to start by rearranging the furniture. Surely somewhere there is a corner for a small desk and chair. You can even find small models of tables up to 100 cm wide.

It's important to pay attention that the workplace has enough light. It does not have to be necessarily natural light from a window but artificial lighting is also possible.

The space of the windowsill can be considered as a potential place: in the bedroom or in the living room – it depends on the layout, free corners or niches.

Options on the balcony look very cool. But in case if the balcony is not insulated and not glazed, repairs will require investments.


5. Make a home garden

The latest interior design trend in 2022 is home gardening. This is a global trend combined with a micro trend that emerged under quarantine conditions. The first was due to the development of the theme of eco and closeness to nature. The second is much simpler: most are much more comfortable in a space with indoor plants. This was acutely felt during the period of isolation, when we all began to sharply miss walks, greenery and fresh air. Caring for potted plants has ceased to be a hobby for certain circles, but has become a mass activity, and even acquired several names: plant parenting and urban jungle (urban jungle).

The implementation of this trend is not easy. First, the plants really need attention. But this is easy to cope with simply by picking up the plants which are easy to care about, such as sansevieria, monstera or ficus elastica.

But you need to be very careful in creating your home garden as abundance of plants is not always beautiful. When there are too many of plants, the atmosphere might lose its coziness as a room becomes like a greenhouse. It's important to group your plants in a nice way and select the pots matching to the style of the room.

Begin your landscaping by identifying flower spots in the room. Let it be two or three copies, placed at different points, and not focused on the windowsill. In order to do it, it is also important to analyze the place itself: lighting in winter and summer, humidity and traffic. And already based on these parameters, select your flowers or plants.
