The Top 2022 Interior Design Trends

We’ll never deny our deep appreciation for time-honored design. From intricate millwork to bold slab marble, we believe classic features are always worth celebrating, but we also like to keep an eye on what’s new. This industry constantly ebbs and flows with popular colors, materials, and styles, and drawing parallels among the top designers’ recent projects is an important facet of our work. We’ll admit that it’s impossible to predict all the 2022 interior design trends with absolute certainty. But if we had to place our bets? These are the looks we think you’ll see everywhere this year.

 The Resurgence of Dark Wood Tones


Blonde wood was been a designer favorite for the past four or five years. The trend coincided with the rise of modern Scandinavian-inspired, white-on-white interiors that are still popular today. However, this year, we’re predicting a noticeable shift towards darker wood tones paired with moody paint colors for a more dramatic look.

The Single Kitchen Shelf


When we renovated our kitchen in 2019, open shelves were a no-brainer. But when we drew up plans for the IDCO Lake House this past fall, we decided to embrace the trend of a single kitchen shelf for a more modern and streamlined look. We’ve spotted single kitchen shelves in top designers’ recent work (think Jake Arnold and Sean Anderson), so we’re confident it’s going to catch on big time.

Green Isn’t Going Anywhere


We don’t need to tell you that green is one of the most popular colors of the moment. But in 2022, we’re going to see green on more than just kitchen cabinetry. We’re predicting tons of green tile showers, green painted walls, and even some deep green exteriors.

Patterned Sofas Are Going Mainstream


Up until now, patterned sofas felt like a scene from your grandmother’s living room. But like most interior design trends in 2022, the pros are reinventing popular features from decades past. Need further convincing? Even Vogue reported the floral sofa is officially back in fashion with a fresh, modern twist.

Everyone Wants Textured Wall Treatments


Designers have a skillful way of layering textures within a space, and now they’re bringing back texture to the walls. Whether it’s a stone backsplash or warm-tone plaster, designers are finding ways to modernize textured wall treatments and add even more depth and dimension to their work.

Parquet Flooring is Cool Again


At the risk of sounding like a broken record, we’ll repeat that everything old is cool again—parquet wood flooring included. Herringbone and Chevron patterns give off a modern feel, but there are so many traditional styles like Parquet de Versailles for a more historically-inspired look.

More Barrel Ceilings in New Builds


The archway entry trend was huge in 2021. But this year, we’ll be seeing that same shape rise to the literal ceiling for a heightened sense of architectural interest. One of our favorite examples is the barrel vault brick ceiling by Marie Flanigan (featured above) that brings loads of character to the space.

Corduroy is the Next Boucle


First is was linen, next it was bouclé, but this year’s darling of upholstery trends is (wait for it) corduroy. While we’re just beginning to see this style pick up with major furniture retailers, we wouldn’t be surprised if 2022 is the year it really takes off.
