Design Trends To Incorporate Into Your Home In 2022

December 21, 2021


Interior design trends can seemingly change arbitrarily year over year. However, that is not the case for 2022. This year, home design experts are seeing personal preferences for comfort and health playing a major role in new decor. Here are a few design ideas that Old Palm Real Estate identified as new home decor trends we are most excited for in 2022:

Landscape Palettes

Soothing green, blue, and terra-cotta paint colors are expected to rise in popularity in the new year, but not for the reason you may think. Homeowners are beginning to transition away from trendy colors and connect more with shades that hold meaning. 

Michelle Lamb, editorial director at The Trend Curve, found that "natural color schemes and organic forms like those found in nature reduce stress, lower blood pressure and heart rate, increase productivity and creativity, and make us happier". 

As the majority of 2020 and 2021 were spent indoors, it makes sense that people are beginning to bring the nature-based aesthetic of outside - and its stress-reducing qualities - indoors. 


Curved Furniture

The addition of softer, curved furniture in the home also follows the theme of a more natural interior look in 2022. While sharp, contemporary elements have been popular in previous years, expect to see more curved backs on sofas, flared arms on chairs, waterfall corners on desks, and scalloped shapes on accent items from area rugs to ottomans*. With the increased amount of time spent in our homes, many have begun to value interior design elements that feel good, not just look good. 

Gemma Riberti, head of interiors at WGSN, said "comfy, curvilinear, welcoming forms will be paramount...Not necessarily plump and over-the-top exaggerated, but soft to the eye and the hand, to create an overall relaxed and comfortable feel within the space”.

Vintage Is Back

Vintage pieces and fabrics will make a comeback this year as generations begin to value more sustainable home decorating options. Shopping vintage pieces from second-hand stores and repurposed furniture establishments will become more commonplace. Instead of purchasing all new furnishings, today’s designers prefer antiques and vintage details. 

"Antiques and vintage-sourced decor and furniture is not only eco-friendly since you are repurposing items, but it allows there to be a juxtaposition between old and new in a space," says Milwaukee-based interior designer Anna Franklin. With the current supply-chain disruptions and material shortage, we expect vintage furniture to not only become a trend, but a necessity in 2022. 


Sensory is Key 

The sensory experience within a home has become a key element in interior design trends in 2022. From a soothing lavender candle to an ergonomic work chair and desk, people are beginning to need more tactile stimulation throughout their residences. Roberto Ramos, CEO of the cultural forecasting agency The Ideatelier, says that visually stimulating vibrant color combinations, high-tech performance designs such as voice-activated kitchen faucets, and bamboo as the most important fiber to emerge in furniture and lighting design, which is natural, sustainable, and organic.”
