IKEA’s Spring/Summer lookbook this year centered around three ‘transitions’ however, one in particular – Outside In caught our eye as IKEA’s response to the shift in what we want from our homes in 2022 – outdoor space.

IKEA’s Life at Home Report 2021, 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 being near to green areas (35%) have increased in importance in the last 12 months.’ 

In the past year, we’ve already seen the biophilic interior design trend filter down into our homes in response to this longing for the outdoors.
