The home has long been the central existence for many, making comfort and warmth desirable elements to seek to maintain throughout the year.

New design themes and trends make waves, and if matters enough to you, you want to keep up with the latest so that your home can always be in the finest shape when it comes to aesthetic appeal and the vibe that it evokes. What interior design trends should you know about for 2022? Check out the top home design trends experts believe will shine in 2022.
Green will be the trending color for 2022 color according to the general indication by paint brands Benjamin Moore, Sherwin-Williams, and PPG, among others. The lush hues of green are beating out blues as the top color to use to decorate a space in the upcoming year. Green brings the comfort of the outdoors to the forefront, reminding you of the beauty of nature, and using the color can give you a sense of connection to nature itself. Bringing the outdoors in can be a way to experience nature’s influence in this pandemic when outdoor gatherings are limited.
Say goodbye to the angular, geometric shapes that you were used to seeing in 2021 and welcome softer, wavier lines for your furniture, décor, and other design elements. Pinterest’s trend prediction report for 2022 indicated that there’s a rise in searches referring to interest in curved walls and living room couches. Retailers are backing this prediction with furniture collections featuring arcs, soft lines, and curves. It appears that consumers are seeking comfort during this pandemic with softer and more calming angles and lines in their furniture.
Cool neutrals, like crisp whites and steely grays, have been longtime favorites that are used in contemporary designs. However, there’s a shift toward warm neutrals, a resurgence of a sort, with a subtle shift back to beiges, creams, and nudes. These comforting neutrals, along with richer, earthier shades, like camel, taupe, all help to create a cozy and inviting atmosphere. Expect to see blush rise as the trending go-to neutral.
Interior design trends for 2022 will see texture rise, where cozy, furry, and nubby will shine.
Expect to see fringe and decorative trim in design stores. Textural treatment will extend to a wall, where techniques such as lime-washing and paint products that mimic plaster finishes will help to make walls stand out. Interior designers predict a variety of materials, like metal, natural stone, leather, highly textured fabrics(bouclé) and wood will be used to achieve a cozy, layered.
Mixing vintage and new rather than seeking entirely new pieces will be the way forward into 2022. A sprinkling of antique or vintage pieces with modern furnishings is a great way to add uniqueness and character to your space. This way, you can repurpose items and also embrace eco-friendly antiques and vintage-sourced decor and designs.
