IKEA’s “Outside In” collection is inspired by this 2022 trend

This year, IKEA’s spring/summer lookbook revolved around three “transitions”, one in particular: out in caught our eye as IKEA’s response to the change in what we expect from our homes in 2022 – outdoor space.

IKEA 2021 Home Life Report, which the brand released last month, revealed how important gardens and outdoor spaces have become to homeowners in 2022. “Outdoor space has become more important to many,” the report says. “A private garden (36%) and proximity to green spaces (35%) have gained in importance over the past 12 months. »

Over the past year, we have already seen the trend of biophilic interior design seep into our homes in response to this desire for the outdoors.

Since many homes, especially those in urban settings, do not have access to private outdoor spaces, IKEA has sought to “evoke elements of nature and serenity” into your interiors “by bringing the outdoors in in your house”. It’s here that out in join the game.

The aptly named Transition aims to create an indoor garden in spaces of all sizes – and its benefits are many.

“Connecting your indoor and outdoor space is a clever and simple way to make your home feel bigger, while inviting the calming energy and natural materials of the outdoors, inside,” says Clotilde Passalacqua , Head of Interior Design at IKEA UK and Ireland.

The benefits of bringing this trend into your home are many, but how can you get involved? Clotilde recommends incorporating “rustic, organic, sustainable furniture” to accent your greenery and give your home an escapist aesthetic.

Sharing her modern decorative ideas, Clotilde also proposes to complete “the beauty of solid wood MORBYLANGA table’ with ‘a set of TEGELON chairs” as beautiful indoors as on your balcony or terrace.

“Spend time improving the spaces you spend the most time in to ensure your home is both a place of refuge and full of life,” adds the designer. “By making small, affordable changes to your spaces, you can easily blur the line between indoors and outdoors and bring some greenery into your home.”

However, perhaps the easiest way to embrace the transition is to fill KONSTFULL vases with colorful flowers that will “add a splash of color to your table”.

It’s the IKEA hack that will celebrate the beauty (and benefits) of biophilia – and we expect the movement to last much longer than S/S 2022.
