Decor trends for 2022 (and a bonus!)

Since 2018, this time of year, I've done a Your Home Story podcast episode about home decor trends for the coming year, and what looks are heading out. I stopped co-hosting the podcast this past summer, but I couldn't not do this episode again! So I got to record with Ashley as a guest this time, our 5th design trends episode!

As always you can find the episode (this one's #199) in your podcast player of choice (here we are in iTunesStitcherSpotifyGooglePlay, and Overcast) or listen at the bottom of this post. But in case you don't have time, I'm also sharing some notes and photos of the trends we discussed here!

Home Decor Trends for 2022

2022 Trends

Home Renovations: 
  • More investments in the home office. Think: built-ins, actual office spaces with more people working from home. Moving away from guest bedrooms or unused spaces that were functioning to better looking offices. Zoom is still a big player. Homework rooms.
  • Multi-function rooms (office/workout room)
  • Game rooms--ping pong or video games.
Home Decor/Finishing
  • Textiles: wallpaper, shag rugs, … anything with a tactile feeling. Patterned/floral upholstery, tapestries. Colorful window treatments.
  • Texture: faux finishes for brick or plaster look, wall treatments, textured fabric, textured wallpaper
  • Going BOLD with decor styles and colors
  • 70’s colors, mod shapes, curves
  • Warm neutrals. Taupe, camel, rust, blush
  • More vintage than ever!
  • Smart home technology (we don't have many of these, but we did just get a solar-powered dusk to dawn outdoor lantern for our front porch!) 
  • Virtual staging
  • USB outlets, pretty switch plates
  • Performance fabrics
  • Movement in upholstery (e.g. swivel chairs)

Trends that are leaving in 2022

  • Open concept homes
  • Cheap replicas
  • All-white kitchens (again). Also waterfall kitchen islands.
  • Shiplap (choose wallpaper instead)

I didn’t see the terms Grandmillenial or Cottagecore in the articles we read, like we have the past couple years, but these trends are definitely still in those vibes. Maybe it's just trendy style now, not as much of a novelty!

A somewhat recent living room shot. That floral chair and couch really don't go together and I'll probably swap out one or the other, but they do both feel fresh! Oh, and I've since recovered those sconce shades with pleating!
