Summer brings the season of family gatherings, parties, and other social events. With this comes the desire to change up one’s home interiors and design. To give you an idea of what’s cool and trendy this season, we’ve rounded up some home decorating advice from the experts. For those who want a more nature-themed look for summer, you’re in luck, as it is fully approved by the interior design experts!
In fact, Vogue reported that shades of brown and colors inspired by nature are in this 2022. Interior designer and multidisciplinary Athena Calderone said that while “neutrals will take a bit of a back seat in 2022…the palette will stay very close to hues you’d find in nature.” She predicts that colors that have “terracotta tones” will be trendy for wall colors. Artist and interior designer Justina Blakeney agrees, saying that “we’re going to see a return of earthy browns in 2022—from cognac to burnt umber.”
Calderone added that because people have spent the last two years indoors, people are “seeking to strengthen our connection with nature,” which results in home decore with “natural surfaces” such as “stoneware, terracotta, marble, and travertine.”
Similarly, Lindye Galloway of the Lindye Galloway Studio + Shop told Good Housekeeping, “An emphasis on natural elements and color palettes will continue to grow in 2022.” She referred to “warm beiges, browns, blues, and greens” as top color picks to offer a “calming presence” that’s “easy on the eyes.”
