For the last two years, people have been spending more time at home, which means that they have made it a point to make home a more livable and comfortable space for both work and play. Because of this prolonged stay at home and move to be able to work remotely anywhere and oftentimes at our places of residence, it has become increasingly important to feel good about the things in our home, Vogue Scandinavia reported.
In the report’s prediction for 2022, three factors influence Scandinavian design trends today, namely “COVID, climate change and digitalization,” Copenhagen-based product designer and consultant Nina Bruun said. The color of the year will be mostly brown and its related shades and people will be going for earth-friendly recycled materials.
As per Glamour UK, a handful of the interior design trends from the last few years remain popular, including minimalist, Scandinavian, and neutrals. These trends offer a calm amidst the political, economic, and global turmoil experienced by many around the world in the last two years.
