With natural furniture and furnishings, innovative solutions for home working and much more, we’ll even look at ways to prepare for 2023. [/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row] Nature-Inspired Resurgence Natural materials and repurposed sustainable additions to your space can look fantastic alongside the right furniture and design choices, with wooden furnishings, integration of plants into rooms and even the merging of exterior and inside spaces rising in popularity. 2022 has seen a huge selection of nature-inspired designs appear seemingly from nowhere, with lounge areas and interconnecting porches perhaps two of the most popular areas to customise in such a way. Hybrid Working Features Hybrid work and full-time working from home are increasingly common, with the pandemic affecting the way in which organisations expect their employees to work. Office-based jobs especially have migrated to the home, therefore adaptable spaces for work from home have seen a rise in popularity. Common 2022 design features have included space-saving folding tables, handily placed desk and laptop set-ups as well as stylish multipurpose rooms. Neutrals Left In The Past Out with the neutral and in with the bright has been the tagline for much of the year when it comes to shades and colour choices, with many of us opting to discard pastel shades and lighter selections. We’re certainly in favour of brighter and more vibrant paint jobs, so why not choose a lively yellow theme, neon features or a colour scheme which is bold and eye-catching? If you’re looking for a particular design specialist, our directory is the place to look. Minimalism? Maximalism? Minimalism and maximalism are two contrastingly different design principles, though they both saw a spike in popularity during 2022. Bare interiors with only the absolute necessities are still considered a great choice, and making the most of a relatively barebones setting is the overall aim for any minimalism enthusiast. Maximalism on the other hand (though perhaps overwhelming for some) is the complete opposite, with this style favouring a large volume of objects within one space, slightly cramped yet homely when executed well. Preparation For 2023 Of course, the trends and styles of 2023 in British interior design are hard to anticipate at this early stage, though we’ve been particularly impressed with the growth of the following: – Indoor Gardening – A Focus On Wellness – Material Purity – Nostalgia-Inspired – Monochrome We establish partnerships with interior design companies, passionate individuals and other fantastic names within the industry.
