What’s new in the latest interior design trends for art? Many things have changed, while others have stayed true to their roots. 2022 is all about practicality, comfort, and the freedom to express who you are. Let’s take a look and see what experts are recommending!
People appreciate spending more time in their homes these days, and we’re realizing that the clean, minimalistic illusion in TV shows is just not practical. Instead, we’ve realized that having more stuff is not a bad thing. Maximalism is about telling the story of your life with your possessions. This rich-looking painting by Irina Kouznetsova would fit right in. What does your art say about you?
Round shapes feel friendly to us by instinct, so it makes sense that curvy items help make a house feel like home. Experts agree that curves will jump in popularity this year. This graceful bronze swan is believed to be made by the Italian sculptor Gabriella Binazzi.
Living rooms transformed into Zoom offices. Bathrooms evolved into spa getaways. Kitchen tables became school and art desks, much like the one in this watercolored etching by Carolyn Cohen. During the pandemic, our homes became so much more than a place to crash from the daily grind. As a result, many of us saw the usefulness of our rooms being multi-tasking workhorses, and we like it that way. This trend will continue this year.
Like the past few years, interest in the outdoors continues to hold strong. People have flocked to National Parks to spend more time outside than ever. Some parks even broke record attendance in 2021! With this in mind, blending the feel of the outdoors into the home will continue to trend. Look for art pieces with fresh landscapes, like this gouache painting by Martha Hayden.
We have rooms for eating and sleeping, but what about rooms for good mental health? Having a quiet space to retreat to is especially important these days. Fortunately, you don’t have to take extreme measures to make a space quiet. Simply rearranging furniture, adding a bookcase, and surrounding yourself with art that you enjoy can do the trick. This painting by Janet Pierce is a great example of capturing the “quiet” feeling.
Yes, you read that right. After holding its place as the dominant neutral color for almost a decade, grays are finally getting dethroned in favor of browns. Earth tones and bold colors are also good choices, like this colorful abstract painting. Both of these paintings were made by artist Liat Polotsky.
Thanks to the younger generations’ renewed interest in recovering old treasures, there is no doubt that historical antiques like this yellow plate are sticking around for a long time. Seniors will be happy to hear about this trend! Hang on to your heirlooms, because they will be passed down to a bright future.
