Design Trends to Look For In 2022
With each new year comes new household trends, and 2022 is no different. Read on to learn how spending more time at home has affected the current trends and what decade is expected to make a comeback in the coming year!
Just like in the fashion world, the 70’s are expected to make a huge comeback in 2022! Mid-Century furniture touches such as peg legs on cabinets and tables, highly textured fabrics and bold colors will be noticed more often. Try gravitating towards teak wood tones for your furniture and incorporating bold, natural colors like terracotta, sage and mustard yellow in the form of paint colors or decor for that warm and inviting look.
Staying on the 70’s theme, curved details are going to be huge. Curves bring a fresh and soft wavy feeling that screams comfort. Adding archways into the architecture of the home, curved corners within walls and cabinets, and curved backs of sofas or dining room chairs will create that inviting warmth into your home.
Looking for a new dining room table or coffee table for the living room? Try a round table to keep with that curved theme. Staying away from harsh edges and straight lines throughout the home will eliminate unwanted structure and coldness.
With people spending more time at home since the pandemic hit in early 2020, we have come to be more mindful of our space. It is expected in 2022 that incorporating our personal hobbies and interests into our space will be widely accepted. If you like to paint, keep that painting table out with your brushes, paint and work in progress on display in a corner of your living room versus packing everything up and hiding it away when people come over. Not only will your guests appreciate seeing your creativity, it acts as a great conversation starter for anyone that enters your home.
Last but not least, we are really going to be amping up our entertainment spaces. Outfitting outdoor spaces with more furniture and activities will be seen more often. Try adding a larger dining room table to accommodate more guests and really dress up the dining room. Incorporate that comfy feel into your living room with luxurious touches to keep all of your guests wanting to stay longer.
Whether you try one or all of the suggested tips, be prepared for a year that is full of comfort and warmth!
