12 Home Decor Trends We’ll See in 2022

dateApr 11, 2022

If the past year-plus has taught us anything, it’s that home should be a reflection of the people who inhabit it, a place to create your own version of happiness. Here are some of the Home Décor Trends we’ll see in 2022 and beyond:


1. Curved Furniture Silhouettes

The sharp lines of mid-century modern will always be in, but more and more we’re seeing a softening of furniture silhouettes, with curved edges and feminine shapes rising to the forefront. “2022 will show more focus on furniture being an artwork in its own right,” says designer Linda Hayslett of LH. Designed.


2. Decorative Cabinetry

If there’s a cabinet profile most people recognize, it’s shaker style. The clean lines and simplicity lend themselves beautifully to almost any design style, allowing other unique elements of your kitchen (like your cabinetry color or countertop selection) to take center stage. That being said, designers predict the rise of different profiles in 2022, lending each kitchen, powder room, or mudroom an air of personalization.


3. Sustainable Practices

“Sustainability is the new sexy and, in 2022, we predict consciously-designed and responsibly-manufactured products to be at the forefront of every home,” says Georgie Smith and Hilary Gibbs, founders of recycled tile company LIVDEN. “From building materials to furniture, consumers are looking to adopt more innovative products that are designed from the start with sustainability in mind.


4. Loads of Texture

Even the most basic neutral palettes can feel layered and exceptional when lots of different textures are incorporated. In the coming year, mastering that mix is going to be paramount. “We'll definitely be seeing an uptick in texture in 2022—the more, the better!” says designer Andi Morse of Morse Design. “There will be more soft velvets and boucle fabrics mixed with woven furniture and sisal carpets. These elements help add warmth, creating an inviting space.”


5. Parisian-Inspired Interiors

“This year, we’re going to see modern interpretations of Parisian-inspired designs as a popular home trend,” says Kelley Carter, Bloomingdales’ Home Fashion Director. “The intersection of color and materials will be a focal point here, with pastels and metallics coming together to create an inviting space. By bringing in design pieces made of translucent materials—like colored glass and iridescent crystal—they can create a glowing effect when you place them in an area of the home with plenty of natural light.


6. Fun Foyers

There’s nothing like making a good first impression, and designers predict that the entryways to our homes—including foyers and mudrooms—will get lots of love and attention this coming year. “One of my favorite new trends for 2022 is fun in the foyer,” says designer Hillary Stamm of HMS Interiors. It’s the first room people see when they come to your home, so don't be afraid to make it amazing! From vintage rugs to books and baskets, aim to create a styled but welcoming vibe.”


7. Home Bars

Time spent at home doesn’t mean all fun is lost. In the past year (and continuing on into the coming year), our homes have learned to flex between WFH zones and classrooms to fine dining restaurants and entertainment zones. One iteration we’ll see much more of in 2022? Home bars. “Be it wet or dry, everyone wants a gorgeous, tricked-out bar in their homes right now,” says Scheer. “While it's a holdover from the pandemic, I think it's a trend that's here to stay and I'm not the least bit mad about it.”


8. Nature-Inspired Hues

The great outdoors has proven to be a great source of inspiration for home design and decor over the past year, and that pastoral sentiment will continue to reign supreme into 2022. “The new neutrals for home colors are actual nature colors,” says Hayslett. This year will see more designs bringing in those muted nature colors such as leafy greens, bark browns, ocean and sky blues, sandy beiges, cloudy whites, and more into the home.”


9. Vintage and Reclaimed

Expect to see vintage and antique furniture gain in popularity even more in the coming year, with many homeowners focusing their money and attention on making these new-to-them pieces feel like their own.


10. Closed Floor Plans

“The pandemic has impacted every facet of life but especially our homes,” says Turner. “More and more time spent at home creates the need for privacy within. A big part of our job today is creating niches and nooks that feel calm and private. We’re adding walls and openings more often than we are knocking them down. The additional design opportunities are a bonus—the more closed rooms, the more creative you can be…”


11. Indoor-Outdoor Living

“Homeowners are putting more investment into their exterior spaces than ever before,” says Jean Brownhill, founder of Sweeten. “Homeowners are moving pools, outdoor kitchens, fire pits, and extensive seating and dining to the top of their wish lists. In warmer climates, indoor spaces extend out to patios for indoor-outdoor living, often doubling the square footage of a home’s eating and entertaining areas. Installing bi-folding and sliding doors that span the full width of a wall can help you seamlessly connect to the outdoors, while large windows are a better option in climates with four seasons.”


12. Colorful Tableware

This year? It's all about mix-and-match color. "The beauty of a mix-and-match colorful table is that you can grow your collection over time," Simring says, "adding pieces from different collections to create an eclectic yet stylish tabletop.
