2022 Home Decor Trends Carried Over from 2021

The good news is there are several home décor trends from 2021 that have carried over into 2022. This means that the updates many of you made in 2021 will still be popular and relevant this year.

Here is a look at some of those continuing trends.

Multi-Functional Spaces

The trend of making living spaces multi-functional is still growing strong. This means that making a corner of your bedroom into a home office is still extremely relevant and makes for a more comfortable and attractive use of space.

Best of all, those multi-functional spaces seem to be helping to bring families closer together as they are spending more time together in the same room.

Neutral Shades and Natural Earth Colors

Another trend that has been held over from last year is the use of natural shades and natural earth colors in home décor. Neutral shades for walls such as gray, beige, and blush that have been in style for many years will continue to be in style for this year as well.

Likewise, accents in natural earth tones such as brown, greens and other colors are also remaining popular as people are looking for ways to bring a feeling of the outdoor inside.

Plants and greenery are more popular than ever, offering a calming way to bring brightness to various rooms in the home.

Of course, the use of sustainable materials is still important in this year’s modern décor. Textile like cotton and wool, wicker furniture and more are becoming more popular here in 2022.

Earthy colors also continue to be popular with rich browns and various shades of green being used to give many homes a fresh new look.

Greenery

The use of greenery and plants in 2022 décor is still going strong from 2021. Using live or artificial plants for home decor brings a sense of relaxation to any space, which is badly needed in this time of spending more and more time inside the home.

More people are choosing edible plants such as herbs providing homes with both the greenery they love and seasoning for soups, casseroles, and other dishes.

Geometric Shapes

Another continuing 2021 trend that is still going strong in 2022 is the use of geometric shapes not just in mirrors and Knick-Knacks, but also in furniture as well, giving some rooms in the home a comfortable, but almost futuristic look and feel that many homeowners love.

#1. Add Bright Colors to Neutral Rooms

Many people have neutral colored rooms in their home. The good news is that this type of room lends itself well to 2022 home décor trends by simply adding some bright colors to this room.

Go with cooler colors such as blues, (moody shades of blue not bright in your face blues) grays and greens.

You can easily update your room with some throw pillows, accent rugs and colorful artwork or Knick knacks.

However, when it comes to kitchens, darker is in with black being a really trendy color for kitchen walls, cabinets and countertops. Black will also appear in other areas of the home, both in furniture and accents.

#2. Unusual Shaped Mirrors

One of the simple ways to execute the latest home decorating trends is by placing unusual shaped mirrors in your home.

Mirrors make rooms look larger and help reflect light, which can also make a dark room brighter.

But instead of a large rectangular or round mirror, why not go with a polygon or trapezoid shape.

Or better yet, go with several small mirrors in various shapes created into a more modern and artistic look.

#3. Geometric Shapes

Geometric shapes are in, which means you can decorate your bedroom with wallpaper that has thin geometric lines with plenty of white space.

You can also recover your dining room chairs with a geometric pattern. Or keep it simple by adding a new lighting fixture, piece of wall décor or other small elements in a geometric design.

#4. Going Green

For the last several years there has been a growing emphasis in using recycled and sustainable materials in our homes and that trend is not going anywhere.

And the good news is that many of us already use recycled or sustainable materials in our home decor. So, we already have a few trendy elements without doing anything at all.

Wood floors and natural stone will be seen in many homes, as well as indoor green plants all combined with more luxurious elements.

#5. Velvet

Velvet is showing up big in 2022 home décor. While most of us certainly don’t want to add a high maintenance velvet sofa or chair to our homes, we certainly can easily add a small blue or green velvet throw pillow to our neutral sofas or chairs.

#6. Flowers and Plant Life

In 2022, flowers and plants will continue to play a huge part in the trendiest decors.

However, instead of those vases bursting with fresh flowers, interesting grasses will add a touch of style as will dry herbs in nice wooden frames make for interesting wall displays.

#7. Upholstered Headboards

One of the big home décor trends for the bedroom in 2022 is upholstered headboards.

Upholstered headboards add texture and sense of luxury to your room without breaking the budget.

New Home Decor Trends for 2022

If you are looking to make a few changes to your home, there are plenty of new trends you can choose from to give your home a more updated look and comfortable feel. Let’s take a look at some of the easier ways to accomplish decor trends for 2022.

#8. Versatility

The biggest new trend for 2022 is making the space in your home more versatile so it can serve different functions. For example, a small entryway can include a pull down desk for turning the entryway into a remote learning classroom.

People are also turning small closets into food pantries, and look at each new piece of furniture they buy in terms of its versatile function.

#9. Cozy Furniture

The 2022 trend in furniture is perfect for providing your home with a warm and cozy atmosphere.

Vintage and craft furniture is popular this year, so go ahead and pull out that old dresser from the attic or that beautiful end table that your grandfather made and you just couldn’t bear to part with.

This year is a great time to break out that 100-year-old coat rack or that vintage rocking chair.

Curved and rattan furniture is also on trend this year. Rounded back chairs and sofas give the feeling of being enclosed in a comforting hug.

Curved chairs or sofas should not be place against the wall, but rather floated in a way that they can be walked around. Curved stands or legs on stands can add interest to those more rectangular pieces in your living room or bedroom.

If all else fails, you can add a curved coffee table or oval dining table to your already existing furniture.

#10. Plaid

A new trend for 2022 is plaid fabrics appearing in quilts, upholstery, and accent pillows and rugs. Plaids give the home a more cozy and homey feel that adds a sense of rustic elegance to country home decors and sophistication to more modern decors.

#11. Mint Green and Pink Accents

While neutral and natural earth colors remain popular, the newest accent colors tend to be mint green and pink.

These accents can be worked into accent pillows, throw rugs and even wall prints as well as candles and other small touches.

For example, a mint green and pink striped pillow on a neutral colored sofa will add color as well as texture to a room.

Look around and decide where and how you can incorporate these accent colors to give a room a new fresh look.

#12. Warm Colored Textiles

Don’t be afraid to include some warm colored textiles especially in your bedroom or bathroom. Reds, oranges, pinks, yellows, and brownish reds can add a real sense of richness and warmness to any home.

With pink being one of the trending colors, it would be quite simple to add a pink sheet set to a forest green comforter or mix some pink towels in with your bathroom towels.

#13. Interesting Lighting Fixtures

Light fixtures have been promoted from accessories to your décor to focal points.

Finding unique and interesting light fixtures such as hanging lights in unique shapes or cool lamps can really add to your home’s overall enjoyment and look.

The great thing is that there is a huge selection of light fixtures to be had, so choosing ones that go with your home’s décor should be a relatively easy task.

This year lighting tends to use braided and knotted textiles in lighting, adding texture and sophistication to the look of the room.

#14. Nix those Window Treatments

Having naked windows anywhere in the home is not something our mothers or grandmothers would ever consider.

But removing all window treatments from those areas of your living space where doing so makes provides your home with more natural light for those plants in your home.

It also gives your home a more open and spacious feel, which most of us enjoy when spending a great deal of time at home.

Without curtains or shades blocking your windows, you are able to feel as though you are truly bringing the outdoors inside.

#15. Dedicated Entertainment Centers

This year, dedicated entertainment centers are coming back in trend. Spending so much time at home many people miss that theater, sporting or concert experience.

So, they are recreating that feeling by setting up their own home entertainment centers which normally includes a large flat screen television, comfortable seating and surround sound.

Keep in mind that you don’t have to incorporate every new decor trend for your home to feel and look trendy. Simply pick out those trends that will easily fit your lifestyle and budget and add them to your current decor.
