If you’re looking to stay ahead of the curve, here are 10 hot trends to watch out for in 2022. From natural materials to geometric designs, there’s something for everyone on this list. So read on and get inspired!
1. Natural materials
Wood, stone, and rattan are all set to be big in summer 2022. If you’re looking to bring a bit of the outdoors inside your home, these are the perfect trends for you. As you know by now we are lovers of natural materials and wool fits perfectly into this trend! If larger furniture upgrades are out of your budget then fear not, a simple upcycle with a sheepskin rug or throw will be a cost-effective way to embrace this trend!
2. Minimalist designs
Clean lines and simple shapes will be all the rage next summer. If you’re after a sleek and stylish look, opt for furniture and décor with a minimalist design. This trend goes hand in hand with embracing natural materials, the naturally soft shades and textures are innately minimalist so this should be easy to follow if this is your style.
3. Pops of colour
Inject some life into your home with pops of colour. From bright rugs to colourful paintings, there are plenty of ways to add a touch of personality to your space. This might seem scary if you’ve been on the grey everything bandwagon for the last few years, but there is no better time than summer to start adding colour to your home! Too scared to do anything permanent just yet? No worries, start off by adding a bright bouquet of fresh blooms into your living space and swapping out smaller accessories, such as cushions, for more colourful ones.
4. Outdoor living
Make the most of the warmer weather by spending more time outdoors. Whether you’re entertaining guests or simply relaxing, make your outdoor space an extension of your home with comfortable furniture and stylish accessories. Use a sheepskin rug for the perfect picnic blanket or cushions to make seating more comfortable.
5. Botanical prints
Don’t have a garden to enjoy this summer? No worries, bring a touch of nature into your home with botanical prints. From wallpaper to bedding, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this trend into your décor.
6. Geometric patterns
Geometric patterns are set to be big in 2022. Whether you opt for a subtle print or something bolder, this is a great way to add interest to your space. Mix and match this trend with pops of colour, geometric patterns and bold shades are a match made in interior heaven!
7. Industrial style
If you’re after a more edgy look, industrial style is perfect for you. Exposed brick, metal fixtures, and concrete furniture are all key elements of this trend. If this trend appeals to you, but starting to rip the plaster off the walls doesn’t, then worry not! You can easily achieve this style by using a few easy DIY hacks and changing up your accessories. You can find stick-on brick adhesives online or in general hardware stores that give this edgy look in an instant (and without the mess)! Upgrade soft accessories for modern and sleek ones, blacks and metallic shades always compliment this style.
8. Mid-century modern
This classic style is making a comeback in a big way. If you’re a fan of retro design, look for furniture and décor with a mid-century modern twist. This style is a perfect mix of using natural materials and adding in pops of colour along with geometric patterns.
9. Scandinavian style
Simplicity and functionality are the hallmarks of Scandinavian style. If you’re after a clutter-free look, this is the trend for you. We are HUGE fans of scandi style and anything remotely hygge so this is one of our favourite trends and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon! Who said summer can’t still be cosy? Decorating your sofa with pastel shades of sheepskin cushions adds comfort and texture as well as keeping you warm and snuggly on those chillier evenings and cooler during the hot days.
10. Global influences
With more people than ever travelling the world, global influences are making their way into home décor. From Moroccan-inspired rugs to Indian-inspired textiles, there are plenty of ways to incorporate this trend into your home.
