2022's Emerging trends (and how to incorporate them in your home!)

June 06, 2022

2022 is well underway and what are we seeing so far in interior design? Keep reading to learn about three exciting trends that have emerged and how you can incorporate them in your home. From maximalist colours and prints to vintage revival, there is something for everyone in this list. Don't forget sustainability – it's one of the most important aspects this year and beyond!

Maximalist Colours & Prints are Taking Over

Prints and colours are having a moment right now. It’s all about bold colours and brave prints, and it can be tricky to get it right. But if you’re not scared of colour and patterns, maximalist decor is for you. Here are some tips for pulling off this style in your home.
First, start with a blank canvas. White walls are the perfect backdrop for maximalist prints and colours. Then, add in some bold furniture pieces. Go for big, overstuffed chairs or sofas in vibrant colours and don't be afraid to mix and match patterns. In maximalist style, more is more.
Next, add in some accent pieces. Brightly coloured vases, rugs, and pillows are all great ways to inject some maximalist style into your space. Don't forget about art! This style is all about making a statement, so go big with your artwork. Statement-making paintings or photographs in bold frames will help to create the perfect look.

Vintage Revival is the New Buzz

There's something so appealing about vintage style. Maybe it's the nostalgia factor, or the fact that midcentury design is everywhere right now. Whatever the reason, more and more people are interested in incorporating vintage pieces into their homes. Of course, there's no better place to find vintage furniture or accessories than at a flea market, second hand store or swap meet. They are a treasure trove for anyone looking for retro style. You can find everything from retro coffee tables to beautiful antique lamps.
 
Whether you're furnishing your first home or simply looking to add some personality to your space, an afternoon of treasure hunting can be incredibly rewarding. Who knows? You might just find your new favorite piece of furniture.

Sustainability is a Must

When it comes to interior design, sustainability is more important than ever. Renewable resources are becoming increasingly scarce, and it's important to do our part to conserve them. Fortunately, there are many ways to incorporate sustainable practices into your design. One way is to recycle or upcycle existing furniture and materials. Another is to use renewable materials, such as bamboo or cork. And finally, you can choose furniture and fixtures that are designed to be energy-efficient. By incorporating renewable, recyclable, and upcycled materials into your next project, you can create a beautiful space that will stand the test of time—and do your part to help the planet. Sustainability is no longer a trend; it’s here to stay.
