Fresh Decor Trends To Look Out For in 2022

Now right around the corner, 2022 will bring many fresh new trends to the interior design world. Designers will ditch the overused neutrals, replacing them with striking colors that don’t feel overwhelming. Playing with different finishes and textures will be the safest way to bring charm into the space. In addition, global changes will dictate some interior trends. 

Accent sofas

While recent trends promoted neutral furnishings as an excellent base for layering, things will turn in another direction in 2022. Cream and beige sofas won’t be a staple anymore since designers will opt for colors that make more of a statement. A camel sofa is an ideal accent piece that won’t overwhelm the space while still fitting neutral color schemes.

The trend for modern home offices that boost productivity started in 2020 when more and more people began working from home. The trend will become prominent in 2022, focusing on nicely curated spaces that fuse style and functionality. An attractive and neatly organized working space will increase motivation and improve employees’ performance.

Antique furniture in modern interiors

Antique furniture finds its place in modern interiors in the form of charming accent pieces that bring personality. Therefore, more and more people will be lurking around thrift stores, trying to find unique details that fit their vision. We already covered the topic of vintage furniture resurgence, a widespread trend that will prevail in 2022. 

Some love the idea of owning high-quality and durable pieces that will stay for years to come, while others might prefer sustainable choices. Vintage furniture fits these criteria while adding visual interest in an unexpected way.

Fresh accents

Adding a pop of color will become a favorite trend in 2022. Citrus colors will find their way into modern interiors, bringing a fresh feel and new dynamics. Orange, yellow, and green will become the new favorites when it comes to accents.

Grey walls

The color predictions for 2022 indicate a shift toward subtle colors that bring calmness and serenity to the space. Grey will remain a popular option for wall paint, thanks to its versatility. It is subtle enough to fit various styles and color schemes while providing a serene mood that differs from the warmer neutrals.

Mix of fabrics

Upholstered furniture will be seen as an easy way to add warmth and coziness to the space. However, you won’t need to match your headboard with the bed stools or bench to achieve perfection. Different finishes and textures will bring visual interest in an unconventional way.
