As the new year begins, there's nothing more fun for us home editors than asking our favorite interior designers to predict the home design trends that we can expect to see in the months ahead. When it came to home decor in 2021, it was all about blending style and practicality as we all continued to spend more time in our homes — upgrades like self-cleaning bidets made bathrooms feel more luxurious while rooms filled with geometric accents gave us something interesting to look at each day.
But what's ahead in 2022? We checked in with some of the most talented designers in the business to uncover the top interior design trends for the year ahead. From new color palettes to unique furniture choices, if your new year's resolution is to give your home a serious makeover, this is the perfect place to get inspired.
Sustainability has become a major issue for everyone, as it should. Looking into the sustainability of everything is a must and it is really an excellent trend that so many designers are trying to learn what the best materials are to use for the long-term health of our eco-system. Luckily, there is a lot to choose from.
Expect English roll arm sofas, wingbacks, simple dining tables based on antique styles and pieces with detail and some history. For materials, we're going to see a lot more natural materials become popular again. Look for Marble, real wood, linens, mohair — things that feel more organic and nice to the touch.
People are starting to understand that they can live with less, especially after the past year. People will start to downsize, or stay in their current homes and become creative with how their spaces can be multifunctional. For example: having your living room be a part office or combined office-workout rooms.
4. Colorful Windows
In 2022, we’re going to see a lot of color and patterns, especially within window treatments. They play a key role within design because they are the jewelry of the room and can really make an impact. Whether it is drapery, shades, sheers, or patterns with a burst of two to three colors will play a strong role in design next year.
5. Bringing the 70s Back
Seventies decor and colors are back. We will be seeing more terracotta, sage, and mustard colors as well as mid-century furniture trademarks — peg legs on cabinets and tables, teakwood tones, and highly textured fabrics."
