Top Home Design Trends of 2022

The New Year often symbolizes fresh beginnings for many. Whether you’re sticking to a new found routine, setting personal goals, or sprucing up home décor, sometimes there’s nothing better than starting the year with a clean slate. If you’ve been thinking about switching up your home décor this year, then look no further. Read on to discover some of the top home design trends of 2022, according to Architectural Digest.


Soothing Greens and Blue
In recent years, the trends have been all about the neutrals, but we’re excited to see soothing shades enter pre-existing color palettes. According to Michelle Lamb, editorial director at The Trend Curve, natural colors tend to reduce stress, lower blood pressure, and decrease heart rate. It’s no surprise that consumers are favoring these soothing colors as a result of the stressful pandemic years!
Additionally, we’ve spent more time in our homes than anywhere else since March of 2020. Individuals are truly looking to make their homes a safe haven rather than just a place to sleep at night. Whether changing up paint colors, adding in new throw pillows, or repurposing old furniture, there are so many ways to incorporate soothing greens and blues into your home décor. If you’re looking for inspiration, try switching Sherwin-Williams’ color of the year– Evergreen Fog! Muted and simple, this tone is a great way to incorporate color in common areas, bathrooms, or bedrooms.


Bring the Outdoors Inside
Plant parenting has become a trend over the past few months and it is definitely here to stay! There’s no better way to bring the outdoors inside than incorporating greenery, flowers, and plants into your home décor. Whether you’re looking to become an expert on plant propagation or leverage low-maintenance vegetation, you can determine how involved you’d like to get with this trend. Even if you don’t want living greenery inside of your home, there are still many ways to enjoy a garden essence throughout your residence. Some low maintenance ideas that can offer the same effect include wicker furniture, fake greenery, or patterned wallpapers. Additionally, many designers are relying on warm wood tones, reminiscent of the outdoors and nature.


Curves and Circles
Exchange crisp sharp edges for clean calm curves. When it comes to furniture, anything offering a circular structure will be sure to make an appearance in 2022 home décor magazines. If you’ve been thinking about buying a new sofa, desk, or table, this is a great trend to follow. Some designers are even installing curved countertops inside of renovated or new construction homes, as spotted in this dwell article.




Touch and Sense
Not only do homeowners want their residences to look good, but they also want them to feel good! Why purchase a blanket if it’s not soft to the touch? Why keep your desk chair if it hurts your back? These are questions that consumers will be asking themselves throughout 2022. Furthermore, items with high-tech performance design and home scents are forecasted to be a big draw this year. Think comfortable chairs, voice activated controls, oil diffusers, and soy candles. This trend not only seems practical, but it just makes sense.  Overall, it’s looking like interior décor in 2022 will be centered around calmness, softness, and comfort.
