Trends in home decor
There’s no way to avoid trends. Whether you live by them or don’t care at all, everything we buy for our homes is influenced by a bigger trend. This includes paint colours and furniture.
Trend 1: Lilac
People in the fashion world already love it, so it wasn’t long before it became a big hit in the home decor world, too. A lot of people think it looks like it was made in the nineties. But, don’t worry, it’s been given a more grown-up look. With metallic finishes, smart mirrored furniture and plush velvets in the same room, it looks glamorous and pretty at the same time, making the room look chic.
Trend 2. Shapes that move
Natural curves are celebrated in this trend, which looks at the fluid lines and spherical shapes that are often found in nature, as well as how they can be used in fashion. It can be used for furniture, lighting, art, and even rugs. Even though it’s calming, it can still have some great pieces.
Trend 3. Shapes with a slant
Most years, there is a trend that is based on the sea, and 2022 is no exception. Some of our favourite things to make have scalloped edges and shapes because they are fun and have curvy lines. They also pay homage to the humble seashell. You can think of beautiful piped edges on bedding, lacquered trays with scalloped edges, furniture with curved edge trim, and rugs that have scalloped edges. Most of the time, an undulating edge is good for things that need it.
Trend 4. Seventies-style clothes and decor
Every time a trend comes back, parents and grandparents talk about how they remember it “the first time around” (cue eye rolls). For 2022, geometric prints, curvy furniture, velvet, brushed brass, and glass will be big, as well as geometric patterns, curvy furniture, and velvet, brushed brass, and glass.
Trend 5. Plants in the house
As we’ve become more in touch with nature and the outside world over the last year or so, it’s no surprise that we want to bring more nature into our homes. Next year, house plants will continue to be a big part of our decorating schemes. So much so that Dulux has come out with a whole line of colours called Greenhouse to show how many people love to grow plants in their homes.
Trend 6. Colour blocking
For 2022, we’re not just going to be more adventurous with colour in our living rooms and bedrooms. Bathrooms and kitchens are getting a more bold makeover, too. A big new trend for all of these places is to paint and tile the whole wall the same colour, making it look like one big, seamless cocoon.
Trend 7: Gingham is the next one
A lot of people are excited about the return of gingham for SS22! This retro trend looks great in both modern and traditional decor, and it’s a fun and playful pattern to add to any colour scheme. Katy Traill, Senior Design Manager: “This season, we’re seeing it in pastel hues for the bathroom, which is great for adults and kids alike, but also in other parts of the home.”
Trend 8: Cottage core cosiness is the new thing
When people want to feel comfortable and cosy in their homes, they want to add a little bit of elegance and some British quirkiness, too. Oval Interiors is the company that did the work for North Sands Development. Jules Upton says that. In your home, you can think about quaint patterns and leafy nature-themed prints. You can also think about gold accessories and cute ornaments.
Trend 9: Organic, recyclable and biodegradable materials
Earthy colours and materials that can be reused and recycled are not only fashionable but also good for the environment. This is a good thing to do. The new minimalist and modern trend is to mix earthy colours with monochrome. Earthy colours also make rooms that are warm and cosy and can be used for a long time, which is important because of the pandemic.
Trend 10: Home decor for your well-being
The pandemic has made people realise that their homes are their safe havens, and that their main goal is to stay healthy. In this case, the main goal would be to make the room feel calm and relaxing with sound-proof windows, fountains, and fragrant candles. So, there will be more yoga and meditation areas, home gyms, play rooms, restful hobby areas, and spa-style bathrooms with rain Jacuzzi hot tubs in the future, as well.
