Natural bedroom decor

Natural and neutrals

What decor is in for 2022? A natural look certainly take the top spot. Natural interior design trends are the perfect way to create a space that’s both beautiful and sustainable. The use of neutral tones in interior design can make your place look feel refreshing, and can be achieved by using wooden materials such as rattan. Rattan furniture is a sustainable alternative to traditional wood and metal. Its lightweight, rust-resistant design makes it easy to move around your home and its durability means you can enjoy it for years to come. Below are a few suggestions for how to create a sustainable and natural feel, a good place to find neutral accessories is Zara Home

Living room with a modern traditional interior

Twist on traditional

Traditional with a twist is the perfect way to go if you’re going for an old-fashioned feel and modern at the same time. This style can be achieved by using traditional furniture and a bold colour scheme. A teal colour palette is a popular interior design trend for 2022, so consider going for teal cushions and curtains as soft furnishings. Another way to create this look is by choosing styles from different eras. For example, choose vintage chairs then add some modern artwork on the wall above them – this will give off an elegant vibe but still keep things interesting thanks to those unexpected combinations! The modern traditional interior design trend is perfect for city apartments, which can also benefit from the following:

  • Traditional cosy living room – make use of original window and door frames, as well as walls
  • Free standing bath tubs
  • Traditional radiators 

Minimalist design

To adopt a minimalist style, you’ll be aiming for clean, simple and spacious. This is a popular look in Scandinavian homes, so if you want to recreate the feel of Nordic living with white washed walls and lots of light – then minimalism is for you. It can also be seen in many hotels around the world, so if your holiday home is available as an Airbnb listing, it could make sense to adopt this style.

Coastal seaside bathroom

Beach house decor

If you’re looking for a design style that’s welcoming and relaxing, coastal beach house decor is the way to go. With a primary colour palette of blue and white, this look evokes images of the sand and ocean. English coastal cottages are a great example of this style. With stone exterior and scattered driftwood, it has all the nautical elements needed. For the interior, expect to see wood floors throughout and  hanging shells collected from the seaside. Some other features you will need to complete the holiday cottage decor look include:
