Nature inspired surfaces and textures - INTERIOR DESIGN TRENDS 2022
Organic texture and natural materials have a very long history in our homes, bringing with them a sense of calm that only mother nature can provide. 2022 is full of interior design trends that focus on natural textures and muted palettes.
“With more time spent indoors than ever before, we’re all seeking to strengthen our connection with nature. This has simultaneously inspired a resurgence in natural surfaces—think stoneware, terracotta, marble, and travertine being used across the board from backsplashes to bathtubs, furniture, and decorative objects. The raw, porous, imperfect nature of these organic materials adds depth, soul, and visual intrigue while also mimicking the calming, restorative ambiance of the outdoors. This lure back to nature has also sparked an interest in large trees at home, from the elegant black olive to Southern magnolias.” -Athena Calderone
“Texture and things from the earth and the hand, like Akiko Hirai's pots. The inaugural show we launched at our new gallery, that Vogue covered with a beautiful story on women and clay, represents a devotion and decisive movement in design to defining art as objects you live with.” -Robin Standefer
“With folks looking to bring a little magic into their lives after a couple of very tough years, I see earth's magical wonders taking center stage: objects made from sparkling crystals and swirling marbles, mushroom silhouettes, pieces that incorporate raw natural materials and exotic flora and fauna motifs.” -Justina Blakeney
“As a designer it is refreshing to see a return to material-driven applications—and it doesn't seem to be cooling off. We see a desire for rich marbles, soft and organic materials, warmer tones and griege vs white on walls, earthy elements like wood, stone, and clay—this is all so classic and refreshing as it brings life to a space.” -Erick Garcia
