How to escape into bliss – 4 Autumn/Winter trends for 2022

So far in 2022, interior design has centred on using our home décor to find a form of inner peace. Creating a space that generates an uplifting energy and improves our overall well-being has been at the forefront of our homes this year. As we close the year, our interiors will become more confident and joyful, allowing you to escape into bliss with biophilic design, retro refinement, and a warming colour palette.

This season, embrace shapes and colours that make you feel good and sculpt a sanctuary you can cocoon into and share with loved ones as you revive and reconnect.

Bare essentials

While the season continues to bring with it all things merry and bright, those who prefer a more minimalist approach to design will find themselves with no end of choice when it comes to warm neutrals and standalone pieces made to make a statement.

A limited colour scheme that helps to create a harmonious, cohesive space that will leave you feeling relaxed and centred is set to be one of the most popular trends this autumn. But stripping back your colour palette doesn’t have to mean a lack of impact.

Choosing quality over quantity when it comes to your furniture is big this season. Pieces that feature intriguing design details and statement shapes, from your sofa to your accessories, creates a calm, uncluttered environment that still looks visually exciting and uplifts your mood.

Natural beauty

Biophilic design will continue to grow in popularity as we head towards the end of the year. Strengthen your connection with the outside world and all its benefits to your mental and physical health through organic materials, natural surfaces and earthy tones and textures. Refresh, reinvigorate and energise with wooden pieces, as well as feel-good textures and indoor greenery.

As we cosy into autumn reconnect with plants and all things green, enjoy an inviting environment that is perfect for getting together with friends and family. From the living room to the kitchen and dining room, there are many possibilities for biophilic interior design in your home.

Positively pink

The colour of the season – soft pinks with positive impacts on your wellbeing. This year, wellness has been front and centre for interior design which has led to a proliferation of colour in the home. Pairing beautifully with bronze and brass, soft pinks can add plenty of warmth whilst looking chic and contemporary.

Having already taken over the fashion industry, this trending shade can be introduced through soft furnishings, statement accent pieces, and even lighting.

Return to retro

70s interior design has been a fixture this year, bringing laidback style and optimistic energy into the home. An eclectic mix of textures, velvet furnishings, geometric shapes and soft curved edges, this season we’re getting even more of our groove back by introducing this décor style through warm colour schemes, iconic mushroom lamps and a houseplant or two.

This comeback trend is perfect to cocoon into and spend the season snuggled up with friends and family. Introduce furniture with subtle curves and earthy tones and accessorise with patterns and metallic details.
