2022 Interior Design Trends at Delcor

What colours will be popular for 2022?

The colours that seem to be popular for 2022 are nature-inspired, earthy tones, such as green shades that have a hint of grey, which many use to accompany their house plant decor. However, recent trend reports suggest a surge in rich green shades, including the more subtle sage green to much darker tones, all fully embracing the natural radiance of the outdoors. Another rich, earthy tone making an appearance this year is brick, a trendy name for the classic terracotta, great for a unique, rustic look, perfect if you are wanting to make a statement. 

Warm, neutral colours are set to be on-trend in 2022 and this muted palette is always the perfect compliment to a contemporary living space, creating an aesthetically pleasing home environment. From a laid-back beige tone to a fancy cream colourway, these subtle shades provide an effective yet striking addition to any room. 

So whether you’re after a timeless look that reflects the great outdoors or a contemporary appearance, our design experts at Delcor are here to find the perfect match for your home. With an extensive collection of fabrics, you are bound to find the ideal colours for your living space. Keep reading as we walk you through some of our top interior design trends for 2022 below.

  1. Minimalist Bedroom Decor

Transformed into an office area in many homes across the country for 2020, 2021 and likely 2022, bedroom decor may see a shift in the near future. With more working homeowners eager to return to the office in 2022, it seems that the bedroom will return to a place of rest and relaxation. Inevitably, when the time comes to return to the office, all items accumulated from when the bedroom was used as a makeshift working space will likely be taken to work, moved to another area of the house, or, better still, given away entirely.

Although it seems like a lot of effort, returning your bedroom to a place of sanctuary will remind you of the safe-haven it once was, away from everyday worries and stress. As a result, removing clutter and ensuring you have a stylish, comfortable bed will be a top priority. 

Here at Delcor, we have a stunning range of customisable, upholstered bed frames, tailored to suit the needs of each individual customer, with attention to detail at the forefront of everything we do. Built by our experienced craftsmen, our bed frames thrive on quality and comfort. For example, our luxurious Mayfair Bed provides elegance and comfort in equal measures, so you can be assured that your bedroom will look on-trend, all while providing a great night’s rest. 

If you’re looking to upgrade your bedroom to its original splendour with the help of a brand new bed, we would recommend exploring our range of bespoke, handmade mattresses. Crafted to deliver the best sleeping experience possible, our plush, handmade mattresses from Spink & Edgar have a spring count of up to 17,500 and are available in Double, King, Super King and Emperor, but can be made-to-measure to ensure that it’s the best possible fit for your bed frame. Still undecided? Read up onour legacy mattress, which has been built to deliver a world-class sleeping experience, leaving you well-rested for the next day.

2. Cottage-core Decor

Popularised by social media, cottagecore interior design has recently witnessed a surge in online searches, which means that it’s a trend likely to stay, lasting well into 2022 and beyond. This nature-inspired, timeless craze draws heavily upon the countryside and, when done carefully, will transform your home into a cosy, rural cottage-like living space, much like luxurious country cottages that are often pictured in timeless, classic films such as ‘The Holiday.’

This idyllic aesthetic can be achieved by embracing either the patterns or styles of a typical countryside cottage. At Delcor, our range of custom, handmade armchairs don’t compromise when it comes to quality and are perfect for achieving that country-inspired look, whether they are placed in your living room, kitchen, bedroom, or even all three. Like our other furniture items, our armchairs are built to your exact specifications, making them fitted to any room, no matter how big or small. A great choice for achieving the cottagecore look would be our cosy, compact Victorian Armchair, which will transform any room in your home into a heart-warming retreat. 

If your living space is slightly larger and a luxury sofa would be more suited to your interiors, here at Delcor, our bespoke range of handmade sofas offer endless interior opportunities. Better yet, our collection of handmade sofa’s will last a lifetime and will always remain a stunning standalone feature in your living space. For example, our traditional, victorian-inspired Chelsea Fixed Back Sofa fits perfectly into the cottagecore trend, particularly if you opt for a robust leather or warm colour palette. Complete with careful handmade detailing, we couldn’t think of a cosier addition to complement the rural interior design craze

3. Textured Fabrics

Spending more time at home might have meant that, unlike pre-covid, homeowners have had the opportunity to evaluate how they really want their homes to look, including what fabric works best both on their furniture and based on their individual family’s needs and preferences. Whatever the case, we expect textured fabrics to continue to be a popular interior design trend through 2022 and beyond. Here at Delcor, we pride ourselves on using the highest grade of upholstery fabrics that are high-quality, long lasting and well suited to the individual tastes and needs of our customers. Our extensive range of premium textured fabrics includes thousands of patterns, checks and styles in every colour and design that you could imagine. We also offer a range of luxurious, velvet fabrics, which are an extremely popular choice among our customers.

Just visit one of our Inspiration Studio’s in each of our five showroom locations in Cheshire, Lincolnshire, London, Northumberland or Oxfordshire, where our dedicated designers are at hand to provide expert advice on colours, styles and types of sofa fabric that will be best suited to your living space. Our talented design experts are also able to source fabric that’s authentic to a particular period or that will match your existing furniture, helping to achieve your dream home with ease.

If you can’t make it to our showrooms, you can request up to 5 fabric samples of our bespoke, upholstery fabrics suited to sofas, beds and furniture. Choose from our extensive collection of 80 samples, which offer a range of fashionable and seasonal textures, materials and colours.

4. Retro Home Decor

Whether driven by popular culture or a general nod to nostalgia, retro home decor is making a comeback and we couldn’t be more excited about it. From statement dining room chairs to curvy, robust armchairs, the late 1900’s are back with a bang, and our range of luxury handmade furniture at Delcor is guaranteed to meet the needs of every nostalgic buyer.

Our collection of bespoke dining chairs, which are built by our talented crafters in Northumberland, are made using only the finest woods and fabrics. To add an 80’s inspired look to your living space, try our colourful Gordon Carver Dining Room Chair. This showstopper incorporates an eye-catching floral pattern, which is complete with vibrant colours to create a luxe-retro appeal. With generous dimensions and striking high arms, this elegant chair is bound to fit right into a home driven by 1900’s nostalgia. 

If you’re on the lookout for a new bespoke, solid armchair, we have a number of designs that are bound to be the perfect fit within your retro-inspired home. If you’re wanting to adopt this interior design trend in a more subtle way -  the Bliss Armchair is a great contender. With its curvy charm and extreme comfort,  the Delcor Bliss Armchair will take you back to the care-free 60’s all while retaining exceptional craftsmanship and comfort. 

Take the trend further and add an additional footstool to accompany your armchair. Stick with a retro style, or mix and match by browsing our impressive selection of period-appropriate pieces. A great match with the Bliss Armchair is the Modular Combi stool, which will give you the comfort and style you need.

5. Antique Furniture UK

Drawing on later periods to source inspiration as we head into 2022, antique-style furniture is set to be bigger and better than ever. The trend has added a unique approach to interior design, as opposed to more generic, contemporary styles that are growing in popularity. Thankfully, here at Delcor, our expert team of furniture stylists craft a wide range of antique-style bespoke furniture. An excellent example of this is the Delcor Victorian Stool, which goes hand-in-hand with our period-inspired sofa. Or, if you’re looking for even more antique-inspired interiors to add a touch of class to your home in 2022, our Valentina Bench is a statement piece that fits perfectly into a room filled with other antique items.
