In 2022, bring more plants into your home!  One of the biggest trends that has been noted from designers to influencers is the continued obsession with house plants.  And it’s completely understandable!  Not only are they beautiful to look at but they can actually help us feel better too.  There are a diverse set of scientific studies that have shown us how important nature is to our health.  Having plants in our homes scientifically makes us feel better.  They help to reduce stress levels and can even improve the air quality in the home.  Stay on trend and treat yourself to a new plant… or maybe even a few!

 

Reclaimed Materials

In 2021 we saw an emergence of “green design” through upcycled furniture, natural materials, and people simply being more environmentally conscious.  This trend will only continue to grow in 2022.  Add materials like bamboo which is both naturally and environmentally friendly to your home to stay trendy and sustainable.  Think about shopping at secondhand stores or buying antiques online.

 

Small Multifunctional Spaces

For the past two years we have watched the world change immensely.  As more and more people are spending increasing amounts of time at home the need for multifunctional spaces has never been greater.  Position your furniture in ways that allow for segmented spaces.  And then, with the right lamps, rugs, or even room dividers you can make several unique spaces in one.  Open concept is out- multifunctional is in!

 

Exciting Wallpaper in Unexpected Places

Think outside the box in 2022.  This New Year one of the biggest trends we will see is the emergence of bold wallpaper in exciting places.  Make your home a statement with wallpaper on cabinets, the ceiling, or even a refrigerator.  Your house, your rules! 

 

Round Shapes

They’re a friendly and welcoming shape.  No harsh lines and edges, they feel much more safe than they’re boxy counterparts.  They can also give off feelings of unity and protection.  In an increasingly unstable world, feelings of safety are becoming more and more important when it comes to designing a home.  Add rounded tables, bed frames, couches and more to your home to create a safe and welcoming environment.

Landscape Palettes

Neutral and natural colors never really go out of style, but they will continue to boom in 2022.  For an all natural landscape palette stick to soothing colors that could be found in nature.  Think warm neutral tones, lots of browns and beige to fill the room with a soothing natural element, reminiscent of mother earth. 

 

Have Fun with Textiles

Last year we saw the popularity of texture in everything from furniture, to walls, throw pillows and more.  This year it’s all about textiles!  Layer different throw blankets, throw pillows, anything to add dimension to your home. 

 

Japandi Style

Japandi Interior Design is the combination of Scandinavian functionality and Japanese minimalism.  We saw Japandi Style begin to flourish in 2021 but as we head into 2022 it will only continue to grow in popularity.  The use of clean lines mixed with a rustic sense of minimalism helps to create a serene and peaceful atmosphere.  Declutter your home and rethink some of your spaces to create a Japandi style home.  Make sure to use only natural materials and a clean color palette!
