We’re ringing in the new year with a list of home decor trends! If you’re in the mood to freshen up your home’s appearance, look no further for your dose of inspiration. These trends are likely to be popular this year:
Giving hand-me-down items a second shot isn’t exactly a new trend, but it’s a habit we’re expecting to see continue throughout 2022. More and more people are turning to second-hand furniture to add character to their home instead of buying everything brand new. Not only can this trend save you some money, it’s also better for the environment. Thrift shopping can help minimize carbon emissions in the atmosphere by lowering the demand for new clothing. Want to join the crowd? You can find high quality items at local garage sales, estate sales, and even online marketplaces. The Antique Flea Market at Veteran’s Stadium is a great place to pick up unique vintage finds. Keep an eye out for trending vintage styles like florals, animal print, and bright colors. Anything with a 70’s flair to it like textured fabrics and tables with peg legs are also hot right now.
We’re talking about the color and the concept. Green is the new black in the interior design world! This color may be trending right now because of its connection to nature and it’s miraculous calming capabilities. After being stuck inside for so long during the pandemic, people are ready to bring the outdoors in. Not ready to commit to green walls? Try bringing in a green statement chair or a green abstract painting first. It’s now easier than ever to get your hands on sustainable home decor. As people become more aware of the changing climate, we’re beginning to see more options for ethically-sourced fabrics and materials.
Piggy-backing off of the green trend, plants will be all of the rage this year! Expect to see plant covered walls and hanging plant installations integrated into more home designs, and not just at your local malls and restaurants. If you’re not quite ready for that, though, consider adding a plant here and there to liven up your space. You may be surprised at how much a single plant can brighten up a room! Plants also have the ability to improve indoor air quality, learn more here.
Curvy furniture is another trend we’re seeing everywhere from Pinterest to Vogue. According to Vogue Magazine, sharp edges are out and curves are in. You may be asking yourself: “What’s with the curvy furniture, and why is it becoming so popular?”. Subconsciously, a soft-curved edge comes across as inviting and safe, much like the green’s soothing feel. If this trend tugs at your heartstrings, consider adding a curved table, couch or sculpture to your space.
