Vintage is the New Interior Trend to Watch in 2022

Home interior trends change every year. One minute it’s all about minimalism, and the next industrial styles are everywhere. Stay up to date with the most recent trends and choose those that fit your interior style. You might find that bold patterns and eclectic spaces are too chaotic. Some people like a neutral colour palette with beautiful textures and house plants. You need to find the style that speaks to your personality and lifestyle. 

Let’s take a closer look at the different elements of the vintage trend.


Velvet had its moment in the fashion industry, and now it’s all over the interior scene. Velvet furniture adds a sense of luxury to any room. You could finish a minimalist living room with a bold velvet sofa in emerald, green. Or, you could add a touch of velvet with a footstool in the corner. You can find velvet furniture everywhere – from Home Bargains to John Lewis. There is a price point for everyone in this trend. 


Terrazzo is making a comeback. Terrazzo used to look dated. But designers have found a way to add a fresh take on this magical material – and we love it.

Think terrazzo sinks on a wooden base or terrazzo splashbacks with matte black appliances. You can use adhesive to install terrazzo tiles in your property in no time at all. 

Vintage rugs 

Vintage rugs are a fabulous investment. They only look better with age, especially when they’re covered in a detailed pattern. Find a vintage rug that compliments your colour palette and doesn’t stand out too much. Bold colours or ‘trendy’ colours could look dated in a few years. You need to love your vintage rug because it’s special to you – not because it fulfils a trend. Buy vintage pieces for the long run and make a smart investment. 

Wood panelling 

Wood panelling is back, and we are here for it. Wood panelling can add style to a blank wall and texture to a boring hallway. You could panel an accent wall in the living room and finish with sage green paint.

Rush seating 

The right furniture can turn a flat minimalist space into a chic, stylish one. Cane and rattan furniture can instantly elevate your space. Embrace the earthy textures and create a modern yet timeless dining room. 

Rattan is also extremely strong and easy to manipulate. You can combine dark wood with rattan for a laid back boho style. Rattan peacock chairs are bang on trend right now. 

Stay on top of the most recent interior trends and keep your home looking fresh. Every space needs a little update from time to time.
