Elicyon design studio is famed for its luxurious method to inside design – so we sat up and took discover after they contacted us with their inside design tendencies predicted for 2022.
Right here, Cecilia Halling, Artistic Director at Elicyon reveals eight methods the group will likely be designing properties within the yr forward.
1. Bespoke gaming furnishings
‘Requests for gaming tables and areas to accommodate board video games are more and more well-liked. We’re usually requested to design areas for chess, backgammon and playing cards within the dwelling, with tailor-made reclined informal seating to calm down in while enjoying.
‘It’s change into about falling in love with your house, bringing leisure into the home now that we’re again socializing in teams and eager to take advantage of the house, selecting to be in moderately than out.
‘Crafting a gaming desk is an actual artwork as they’re extremely bespoke, with totally different colorways or patterns to go well with each totally different sort of recreation. One consumer required a facet desk in the primary dwelling area whereby should you flipped the highest it become a chessboard.’
2. Indulgent responsible pleasure area or room
‘As do business from home turns into a extra everlasting fixture in lots of our lives, the necessity for a way of escape to retreat to after work is prevalent. An area that means that you can really feel as if you’re departing from the day – be it, a room the place your creativeness runs wild with vibrant colours or daring artwork, or an immersive screening room the place you possibly can lose your self enjoying PlayStation or Xbox, for instance, with encompass sound.
‘Over the previous couple of years, there was an apparent shift to paint in our dwelling design and creating enjoyable moments that excite. For one consumer, we created an aerial yoga room that was fully mirrored from flooring to ceiling – it was an indulgence that they’d at all times dreamed of getting in their very own dwelling. For one more consumer, a Moroccan fashion spa in electrical blue was created as the final word area to unwind after work, for a cleanse and refresh. The shock issue helps to create a second for visitors. These responsible pleasure areas are the final word luxurious.’
3. Painted or tented ceilings
‘The fifth wall in a room is usually uncared for and painted white as normal, nevertheless, we see it as a chance to be playful, add colour and character to an area. It could be that additional coving element is added to attract the eyes up, or that the ceiling is painted a wholly totally different colour altogether.
‘For one consumer, we’ve draped a big cream canvas over a toilet ceiling to create a biophilic sanctuary, virtually a safari tent, to evoke unique emotions of journey. In one other mission’s powder room, we’re utilizing Cole & Son wallpaper that includes clouds to cowl the ceiling. The wall area was largely taken up by furnishings, and so we needed so as to add curiosity to the big spare otherwise-unused area on the ceiling; it was then framed with a darkish inexperienced trim.’
4. Uncommon, sudden, and playful color combos
‘Within the absence of journey previously two years, we’ve seen an apparent openness to paint from our purchasers – daring, uncommon and sudden colour combos corresponding to salmon and cherry, mustard and mint or lilac and orange are thrilling and joyful.
‘Quite than sticking to two-toned materials palettes, we’re including three colours or 4 to make sure interiors come alive. What might really feel like a conflict on paper, and wouldn’t instinctively go collectively, typically finally ends up with probably the most character. Making sudden combos with these paint tendencies creates a extremely particular and stunning scheme.’
5. Earthy colours, materiality, and textures
‘Pink timber is a product we’re working with extra in our schemes, usually with a cherry or unique veneer. Although lately we’ve used a cooling gentle blond timber harking back to the pared-back whitewashed fashion now synonymous with en vogue summer season locations together with Ibiza and Mykonos.
‘This earthy materiality feels grounding and helps to really feel linked to nature in our properties. Burnt and charred wooden has a beautiful texture – it’s a fabric that’s virtually been destroyed and but via the method of destruction a lot character is added. It’s about celebrating imperfections and highlighting the uncooked materiality in the precise atmosphere provides an area depth.’
6. Prime colours for 2022

7. Uncovered utilitarian particulars
‘Impressed by the British Italian architect Richard Rodgers, identified largely for his work on the Centre Pompidou in Paris, and the Lloyds of London constructing and Millenium Dome in London, the furnishings pattern we’re drawn to is making a characteristic of utilitarian particulars, as is usually carried out in structure.
‘Quite than hiding the nuts and bolts of a chunk of furnishings, we’re in favor of highlighting these parts as a design quirk. Exposing metal framework usually has an interesting trustworthy aesthetic.’
8. Uncommon pendants and chandeliers
‘After years of loving refined bronze, alabaster and blown glass lighting tendencies, we are actually drawn to brilliant colours and apparently formed chandeliers. In a latest mission, we suspended a floating blanket formed chandelier fabricated from forged glass, which frames the primary dwelling area.
‘Acid colour pops added to schemes create playful curiosity, and we’re predicting a flurry of those in inside schemes all through 2022.’
