Interior design and living trends

A home has become increasingly important over the eventful years and we are becoming more and more aware of this. After all, it is no longer just a place where you can unwind and feel completely comfortable. Since the last few years, it has even become the place where you work, learn, enjoy and holiday. This is also what the living and interior design trends of 2022 are based on. An interior is very personal and says a lot about you as a person. Developing your own unique style is therefore also a fun challenge.

A nice colour on the wall and accessories and furniture in colours you like will make you feel even more at home.

With these colours, you are fully compliant with the living and interior design trends of 2022.

Marine blue

Blue makes you think of a clear blue sky and a dip in the sea or pool on hot summer days. It is a colour that we see coming back every time as a trend colour. So we are going to see a lot of navy blue in many accessories and even walls. Although this blue colour is on the darker side, it provides a lot of warmth. Navy blue is very easy to combine to create that warm feeling even more. For instance, it can be stylishly combined with mustard yellow, orange and pink. Think the room is getting too dark? Then you can also work with light colours to brighten it up a bit.


You can go either way with it; it is a cool and calm colour that creates a peaceful environment. Especially in the modern interiors of 2022, the colour grey is very popular. Light grey or dark grey, as long as it has a warm undertone, you will be fine in 2022. To create a cosy living room, combine grey with a piece of warm wood, or with other trend colours, pastels, sea green, ochre and even gold.


We have not been able to travel much in recent years, so we bring the warmth of foreign countries into our homes. The colour terracotta is especially common in Mediterranean countries, so the colour is perfect for bringing the foreign feel and warmth into your home. To create a nice whole, terracotta can be combined nicely with off-white or blue-grey tones.


Brown is the new black, the colour is warmer and less heavy. Brown is making a big comeback in home and interior design trends and is sure to stay for the next 30 years! The colour provides safety and security which many people like, since they are now at home a lot. The colour is also easy to combine with all materials that come from nature. Subdued colours like brown will stand for simple, classic, exclusive, comfort and transparent in your interiors, as well as your curtains.


Finally, pastels are also very popular. Not the honey-sweet pastels, but a soft counterpart to bold pop colours. Pastel colours create a relaxed atmosphere in any room and have a positive effect on the mood of the home.

De interior trends van 2022


Sustainability is increasingly playing a bigger role in households. More and more people choose recycled materials, furniture with a story, made with respect for nature, people and animals. A timeless piece of furniture that lasts longer, giving new life to old furniture by buying second-hand furniture or refurbishing your own. Are you in favour of this too? Then this year's home and interior design trends are right up your alley! Smartblinds also contributes as much as possible to a more sustainable world. Discover how Smartblinds contributes to a better world!

Worldly elements

A living trend that will also be common this year is worldly elements. We go on a world trip in our own home, so to speak. To combine foreign furniture and accessories, you create a very special feeling in your home. This should include a lively colour palette, combined with basic colours for a nice and soft whole.


Japandi is new living style that you will see a lot of next year. It combines the style of Japan and Scandinavia. You wouldn't think it, but the two styles have a surprising amount in common. Japandi combines the modern flair of Scandinavian design with timeless Japanese elegance. The perfect balance between clean lines and organic shapes is beautifully shown in this interior. This new living trend creates minimalism with a warm feel that calms and increases the feeling of well-being.

Light and soft fabrics

We value a nice home more because of the corona era, which includes light tones, round shapes and cuddly fabrics like wool and linen. Besides straight shapes, these days there is always something organic, think of a round table in a large room. Round shapes break up the space and also help soften it. The result is a fresh home, but soft and simple take the lead.

Window blinds that respond to home and interior design trends

In the top headings, we talked about interior design trends, which includes window coverings. The colours mentioned above can be used in all types and sizes of window coverings. With subdued brown tones in particular. Those colours represent simple, classic, exclusive, comfort and transparent. If you keep the colours of your window coverings calm, you can go wild with furniture and accessories.

In addition, you can also apply sustainability to window coverings. You can do this by using smart window blinds. For example, use our honeycomb blinds, which can help you a lot keeping the heat in or out. Smartblinds' pleated blinds have a honeycomb structure that creates a stagnant layer of air, keeping the heat in and the cold out in winter, vice versa in summer. Another example are roller blinds. With electric roller blinds you create a better indoor climate, for example, thus saving energy.

Last we have warm velour curtains, this fits the trend of light and cuddly fabrics. They have been in fashion for years and are also increasingly found in living styles. Velour curtains have a classic and luxurious look, and they also provide good room darkening.

Smart home trends

Of course, as in recent years, smart home is also an emerging trend within the interior and living sector. Smart home is also becoming increasingly popular in the field of window coverings.
