Minimalism in Design + GREEN has a moment

1_1-0002.pngFor 2022, we are going to see more of a minimalistic design approach – not only in interior design but all aspects of design. A stripping back of interior architecture and macro design and putting more of a focus on detail – with a real hand-crafted approach. We have all been virtual for so long now, clients are wanting to touch things again – focusing on the texture of a fabric, a drawer detail, even a façade. We have heard it over and over, but it truly is all in the details!

Oh, and GREEN! It’s coming back again in fashion, jewelry, interiors, architecture, you name it!

Designated Spaces and Creative Ideas for Multifunctional Rooms

After so long in sweatpants and activewear, there will be a desire for a bit more formality in both form and function – think designated spaces and zones versus big, open rooms. Color, texture, pattern, layers, and I agree with John Paul Pederson – green is HOT! and I am here for it.

You can expect to see even more creative ideas for multifunctional rooms, with every nook and cranny taken advantage of as our relationship with the home continues to evolve and clean, innovative room-dividing tactics ensue.

Rounded Shapes, Soft Contrasts, and Light

3-0008.pngRounded shapes and soft contrasts aren’t exactly new, but they’re also not likely to be going anywhere as we continue to try and balance out the chaos and complexity of the outside world – especially when it comes to the home. Basic soft colors, rounded furniture, and retro greens and patterned fabrics will be popular, with minimalist interior design choices and as much glass as possible to let the outside in (and help with our daily dose of Vitamin D!).

Locally Made and Sourced Finishes/Furnishings

As sustainability remains at the forefront of everyone’s minds, locally made and sourced finishes and furnishings will become a priority – not only lowering carbon footprint but celebrating and authentically integrating the immediate surroundings.

Light Wood

Everything old is new(er) again

There will be a surge of conversions, restorations, and repurposing. As an eco-conscious person with a focus on sustainability, the new mantra will be to find alternative use of spaces, vehicles, or objects. This concept isn’t new, but designers may become more creative in their approach. Taxis are being used as planters in Thailand, train cars are becoming hotels, and aircrafts are being used for vertical farming. —Deepu Mahboobani, Associate Vice President + Studio Director, Singapore
