Eager to update the student apartment a bit? Maybe you read our post about decorating your home after Christmas and were inspired to make the apartment a little more you? In that case, here comes even more inspiration. We’ve looked around for this year's interior design trends and the fact is that they seem to fit perfectly in a student apartment. Isn’t that neat? Here are some of them:
Organic feeling: Rounded shapes continue to be a thing – preferably in a sort of nature:y color palette. Some mention "tactile textiles", ie fabrics with an interesting surface, such as jute or velvet or the like. Even patterns with flowers and other plants on them seem to be hot. Objects from outside are interesting and especially when they have that surface stuff get when they have aged for a long time. Super easy, just take in a beautiful fallen branch and make it the apartment's new centerpiece.
Color: Although the colors of nature are often soft and many of the neutrals of recent years are that palette, the all-white is apparently "a thing of the past". This also applies to beige. And things of made out of bouclé fabric.
Retro vibes: Vintage furniture and retro flirting is one of the trends in 2022 (nice for us students who like to buy our furniture second hand anyway). Again it’s that special feeling an old object, a piece of furniture gives a room – a little more soul, a little more interest.
Multiple functions in one room: This trend is probably (at least in part) a product of covid and all the time we’ve spent in our homes in recent years. All of a sudden, all kitchens, living rooms and bedrooms also had to act as offices and now they want to build on that with more well-thought-out solutions. In student apartments, a room generally needs to be many different rooms, so let’s see what news the designer gang come up with (and what becomes of this "trend").
"Up and coming artists": The snobbish way of collecting art is apparently over. In the galleries, curators and gallery owners report being asked who the latest, newest star in the art sky is. A little snobby, too, perhaps. But with this trend, one can become that person oneself. If you create the art on your walls yourself, you get the latest and exactly what you want on the wall. Great.
There we go. That was what we found. Is there a trend you like? Trends are obviously something to take with a pinch of salt, but they’re fun to watch, read about and maybe pick one up.
Have a great weekend and talk to you soon!
