Home Inspiration: Interior Design Trends

We are here to discuss some of the top interior design trends of this year.

Here in the UK, we love our homes, we love the buying and building, straight through to the cleaning and decorating! It seems the nation has fallen in love with the world of interior design with the Netflix shows ‘Amazing Interiors’ and ‘Dream Home Makeover’ becoming so popular. There are so many elements to consider when planning your refresh, from patterns and textures to colours and styles. If you know where to look, you can always find advice on current trends, such as the Dulux colour of the year 2022, which is Bright Skies, a fresh pale blue to soothe the soul.


Coloured Concrete

In 2022 we have seen more and more people opt for coloured concrete in and around their home. It is a low maintenance material; you can choose from different concrete options, and it can add depth and dimension to patterns. While concrete can feature heavily on the exterior of your home, it can also be bought into the home with modern concrete decorative accessories.

The ‘Bubble Soap Dish’ is handmade in Yorkshire using coloured concrete. This piece can be used both as a soap dish or as a coaster. They are made by ‘Concrete and Cacti’ and are available in a range of different colour options.



Consumer demand for sustainability is at an all-time high. Large factories and manufacturing companies are now looking for innovative ways to use reclaimed materials. This year, it has become a focus point for interior designers, people want to use responsibly sourced materials and they want their homewares to hold a story.

Versatile Spaces

Multifunctional space is a huge trend this year. During the pandemic many people were forced to work and study from home, most of the nation were not equipped for this and therefore found themselves studying at their kitchen table and setting up a home office in their dining room. Not ideal. There are so many smart solutions available now, sleek office furniture and creative storage solutions.

Black Accents

Black is a powerful colour; it represents sophistication and style but in the world of interior design it can often be an intimidating colour to work with. Try adding some sleek black finishing touches to your home to add that touch of elegance.

Wallpaper is Back

Wallpaper has made a huge come back this year. Wallpapers can bring extra depth to a room using intricate patterns and textures. Some of the popular choices for 2022 are scenic and mural wallpapers and atmospheric panoramas, we have also seen a huge surge in luxury textured wallpapers.
