Five interior design trends that inspire 2022
As 2021 draws to a close, a new year presents itself and for the sandgropers, the summer season begins. It’s a time spent surrounded by loved ones, basking in the delicious sunshine and cooking delicious meals that provide heartwarming memories. Spring then becomes the time for preparation.
When we asked how we can best prepare our home spaces to complement the much anticipated festivities, design consultant Tory Deakin said she is investing in pieces that enhance your lifestyle and the way you like to be entertained.
“Uplifting your surroundings should inspire, evoke and enliven the senses in you and those you spend time with,” Ms. Deakin said.
GLASS AND DISH FOR EFFORTLESS TABLE SPACE
Effortless table space is facilitated by beautiful glassware and tableware.
“The handmade plates and ceramics evoke the senses and make sharing food with friends a pleasant and inviting experience,” Ms. Deakin said.
“The addition of pops of color throughout the glassware evokes a playful sense – adding to summer festivities – and, when paired with cuttings from your garden, create an effortless yet personalized summer table setting. “
Ms Deakin suggests Loam-style essentials including glassware from Maison Balzac, ceramic plates and bowls from Winterwares, gin and whiskey glasses from Denver & Liely, and beeswax candles from Tony Assness. .
REIMAGINE YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE
A shady spot in the garden, on the balcony or by the pool, are places designed to help you connect with both the outdoors and your friends.
“The key is to look for pieces that are both practical and aesthetic so that you can enjoy them in your outdoor space for years to come,” Ms. Deakin said.
“One of our favorite summer picks are the Summer Swivel chairs from Grazia and Co, the perfect addition for an outdoor gathering space and perfect for enjoying that G&T on a hot summer day.”
CREATE INFORMAL SOCIAL SPACES
We all give and sometimes get the ‘old pop’ – even more so in the summer.
“Creating informal social spaces within the home is a great way to always be ready for guests,” Ms. Deakin said.
“A great way to do this is with the Dita bar stools from Grazia and Co.
“They allow you to sit relaxed on the kitchen bench or take them outside for more space when people come in.”
STRENGTHEN AN OLD SPACE WITH SCULPTURED OBJECTS
An easy way to make an old space feel like new is to invest in some beautiful, handcrafted sculptural items that you will have for years to come.
“These can lend themselves to fresh or dried flowers, or just function as a stand-alone work of art,” Ms. Deakin told us.
“One of Loam’s favorite local designers, Emma Lindegaard of Emma Lindegaard Studio, creates beautiful, unique ceramic vessels that always catch the eye.”
DO NOT TOO COMPLICATE YOUR STYLE
Quality time spent with loved ones in the summer should be cherished and always appreciated when made easy and effortless – so don’t overcomplicate it.
Invest in quality pieces because you love them, not because they are “trendy”.
“This will allow families to enjoy shopping all year round and for years to come,” Ms. Deakin said.
