If you are someone who is interested in home decor and design, this article is a must for you. We bring everything you need to know about this year’s home decor trends.
– Comforting Curves: The curved shape feels subconsciously safe, friendly and welcoming. Femininity will impact form in 2022, conveyed by rounded details ranging from circular structural elements to soft curves. Rounded corners or curved backs on sofas and flared armrests on chairs or bumpers on sectionals. Cascading corners on desks and consoles will reinforce the trend, as will drum tables and scalloped shapes on accent items from rugs to ottomans. Comfortable, curvilinear and welcoming forms will be paramount, gentle on the eye and on the hand to create an overall feeling of relaxation and comfort in the space.
-Pet-friendly: Pet-focused decor is all the rage this year. Most people consider their pets part of their family. The “Barkitecture” design trend gives pets something cozy to bask in that stays consistent with your existing decor. It’s about to make a splash in 2022. People want to spoil their pets, but in a way that doesn’t disrupt their decor. Similar to your luxury touches, this can be tailored to fit your space, needs and budget. Incorporate pet-inspired pieces into your home, like a fun wall organizer perfect for hanging leashes and collars.
-More indoor plants: well-being in buildings is becoming more and more important for the developer and the inhabitant. Naturally, since houseplants have a calming effect and promote clean air, you can expect to see more living walls and hanging plants in amenity spaces and residences. Plants will not only complement your natural woods and warm browns, but they will also purify the air. Plus, seeing your flowers grow brings a deep sense of fulfillment and joy.
-Work from Home Setups: Many open plans will continue to accommodate alternative workspaces with smart shelving, space-saving features, and maximized nooks. There is an increased interest in creating the ideal home office. From a spacious space with everything you need to a pull-out desk in a living room, home offices come in all shapes and sizes. Functionality, practicality and aesthetics are equally important. Regardless of style, shape, and size, your home office will need a few basics to be a productive space. Colors that calm and focus the mind, such as subtle blues, greens and neutrals, are on trend avoiding very bright hues which are energizing as they can lead to restlessness. Keep decorating to a minimum to stay focused.
-Meditation Corner: Transform any corner of your home into a serene meditation corner. They’re perfect for winding down after a long day at work or for some alone time before interacting with your partner in the morning. To create a cozy sanctuary in the corner of a room, I recommend incorporating comforting yet uplifting decorative elements such as soft floor cushions, exciting artwork, a small side table or bench and a colorful rug. If you can find a nook near a window, even better.
-Warm Tones: It is more adept at incorporating moody colors into their homes than stark whites. Use eggplant, hunter green, black, and warmer alternatives to white like taupe, beige, and cream. These moody spaces feel a bit more expressive and are definitely cozier.
– Shades of brown: Chocolate browns, camels and caramels – there have been so many colors and patterns, especially pastels, in recent years and I think people will be ready for a palette cleanser. Neutrals will take a step back in 2022 as people start experimenting with color again, but the palette will still be very close to the hues you’ll find in nature. We anticipate the paint rollers to be drenched in pink and terracotta tones, enveloping rooms from wall to ceiling for a full monochromatic moment that will wrap you in its comfort. return of earthy browns in 2022 – from cognac to burnt ombre.
– Black accents: Here we begin to see the real benefit of setting a neutral base. The interior color trends of 2022 go to the extreme with black. Although they come in small doses, black accents are punchy and powerful. It’s a great way to add flair and depth to more minimalist spaces: choose light, neutral colors for the main elements of your space, like paint colors and large sofas, and incorporate black accents for the contrast. Black accents such as lamps will help accentuate an area and add interesting depth. Even swapping out black handles on existing pieces like side tables or TV cabinets will add a splash of contrast to a space.
