MORE VINTAGE THAN EVER
The celebration of one-of-a-kind pieces will be an increasingly important trend this year. Not only these handmade and customized lighting and furniture pieces are the most suitable for your design project, they are also laden with unique details that are expensive to re-create.
In 2022, we will see a focus on natural materials, especially in spaces like living rooms. Living room design trends are mirroring the revolution against fast fashion, now aiming for longevity and timelessness.
Black accents and hardware will be a popular home trend we’ll see this year. In fact, it’s a great way to add some edge and contrast to a more minimalistic space. Designer-approved tip: choose light, neutral colors for the main elements of your space, and incorporate black accents to add depth to the room.
“We predict that multi-functional living spaces with access to daylight and views will remain key to apartment living in 2022,” says Stephen Brockman, a partner at Deborah Berke Partners.
Bring on the textured fabrics! Perhaps it’s a reflection of a year and a half spent getting cozy at home, or a product of increased attention to details, beu velvets, and boucles are the ‘it’ fabrics for 2022.
The pandemic led us to acknowledge the importance of our house as a place to rest and recharge the batteries on the daily basis. We will continue to see the demand for versatility in the home where one space can be transformed and molded for multiple activities.
MIXING DARK AND EARTHY TONES
In 2022, we will see a shift from dark and moody to rich and deep. We will see different shades of brown, copper, earthy tones coming into play with a mix of black and gray.
HOUSEPLANTS EVERYWHERE YOU GO
Indoor plants have a calming effect and promote clean air, you can expect to see more living walls and hanging plants both in amenity spaces and residential projects.
PLENTY OF MARBLE
Bold, heavy marbles making their way into the design world and staying for a very long time. Let’s face the fact: you can never go wrong with too much marble.
