Trends in home decor are ever evolving as our interior designs can make a home feel totally refreshed and updated. Upcoming trends include bolder and more exciting colors, returning trends from past times, and patterns and designs that reflect more natural shapes and forms.
No. 1 – STRONGER, BOLDER COLORS
After two years in the pandemic, consumers are turning to brighter shades that are naturally uplifting. People want to feel good and have fun and interesting spaces in this time of uncertainty. Color blocking is a big and upcoming trend to express a home’s personality through stronger, more saturated colors.
No. 2 – NATURAL TEXTURES AND MATERIALS
Bringing raw simplicity and a calming nature to your home can be achieved through natural materials and tactile textures. Everlasting dried flowers and dyed and dried grass further blur the boundaries between outside and inside living. In contrast to bright and bold colors, we will see an increase in calming, nature-inspired colors and textures which include earthy materials, organic shapes, raw material and greenery.
No. 3 – FLOWING SHAPES
Flowing shapes, such as light fixtures are trending, celebrating the necessity to adapt to ever-changing flow of life. We are beginning to explore fluid lines and spherical shapes we see in nature. Hard lines are becoming more fluid and curvaceous to give a feeling of movement within a space. This trend can be seen across home accessories and textiles for an elegant, yet welcoming feel to the home.
No. 4 – SEVENTIES STYLE
As with fashion, home trends recycle and come back around. Heading into 2022, we will see nostalgic designs reappear from the Seventies. Trends from that era feature geometric prints, curvaceous furniture and accents of velvet, brass and glass. We are also seeing retro, sepia shade pieces that are typically seen in lighting designs, creating an inviting glow. Tinted glass used in lighting, home accessories and tableware experiment with layered transparencies, giving a two-tone style keeping a space fresh and new.
No. 5 – MULTIFUNCTIONAL DESIGNS AND SPACES
Single use spaces are becoming less popular, not surprisingly so, with all the changes society has gone through in the past two years. Working and spending a ton more time at home with a change in necessities of the functionality within a home, we are seeing a surge in multifunctional designs and spaces. Taking a look at the space a room has to offer, shelving, ladders and platforms add layers and multifunctionality, becoming staple pieces in a modern home. Not only do these elements look great aesthetically but they make a multifunctioning space possible.
