A new year means a fresh start—and a whole range of exciting new design trends to help inspire home improvements. Take a look at these trends primed to make a splash in 2022.
Environmentally conscious design is more important than ever. That means choosing eco-friendly materials and sustainably built furniture, repurposing vintage pieces, and even adding smart home technology to help reduce energy consumption.
We’re still spending a lot of time at home, so multifunctional spaces continue to be a priority. Office, gym, classroom, playroom—consider which rooms can be reorganized and furnished to do double (or triple) duty.
Furniture with interest
Opt for furniture that makes a statement, like curved couches with soft silhouettes and sculptural chairs and coffee tables. Or, if functionality is most important, choose a modular piece that can be easily reconfigured to suit your needs.
Enjoyable outdoor spaces and seamless indoor-outdoor living is still highly desirable. Landscaping, home vegetable gardens and greenhouses, a pool, outdoor fireplaces and firepits, and luxury patio furniture are ways to help expand your living space.
Books as decor
Dust off your books and display them proudly! Try stacking fashionable hardcovers or coffee table books, or add stylish bookshelves to your room for smart and easy wall decor.
Make a room feel shiny and new with mirrors, and don’t shy away from reflective surfaces to help make your space appear larger—think metallic surfaces or glossy tiles for a kitchen backsplash.
Soft, luxurious velvet is making a comeback. Easily incorporate this trend with throw pillows, blankets, curtains an accent chair.
Going for a bold look? Use geometric patterns to make a statement, whether with checked or grid wallpaper, art deco wall decals, or geometric inspired artwork.
Look to previous decades for tons of decor inspiration. Lean into nostalgia with rich textures and bold colours from the ‘70s, or choose teak and mid-century modern furniture for a vintage feel.
Pops of Colour
Pantone’s 2022 Color of the Year certainly isn’t shy. Very Peri, a blue-violet hue, is meant to spark creativity—-which is something we can all use a little more of right now. Not ready to commit? Try painting a statement wall. If you’re seeking a softer palette, consider a nature inspired green shade to help bring the outdoors inside.
