Is this in style?
If this is a question you find yourself asking while looking around your house, you’ve come to the right place.
In this blog post we’re sharing five interior design trends to keep an eye on in 2022.
The idea of mixing and matching will be big in 2022. This means blending different finishes to create an inspired look. For example, add a wool throw blanket on the back of a velvet couch or layer a faux fur rug over top of an area rug to create the feeling of depth and warmth.
Contrary to the belief the color black makes a space feel dark and drab, many interior designers agree it adds a level of impact and depth to any room. From subtle to eye-catching, black accents are a versatile design trend to consider in 2022. If you’re feeling stuck, check out these ideas to incorporate this trend in your home:
- Decor – Candelabras, vases, furniture, throw pillows, decorative pieces, the opportunities are seemingly endless when adding black accents to a room.
- Gallery wall – Use black frames to create a sleek and modernized look to any room.
- Hardware – Faucets, door knobs, light fixtures and more. Black accents can create a striking look.

In a previous blog post, we talked about incorporating real plants in a home office to boost productivity. Indoor plants can have the same positive effects when placed in other rooms of the house, too. In fact, according to a study from the Journal of Physiological Anthropology, plants in a person’s home can make them feel more comfortable, soothed, and natural.
Beyond the health benefits of indoor plants, they’re also aesthetically pleasing and can tie a room together and add a layer of natural beauty. Here are a few plants to consider:
- Fiddle leaf fig tree – This voluminous tree needs ample sun and weekly watering to thrive.
- Snake Plant – This low maintenance plant variety requires infrequent watering and indirect sunlight.
- English ivy – Perfect for bookshelves, mantles, and more, this plant requires bright, indirect sunlight and minimal water to survive.
As a result of the pandemic, we’ve seen an uptick in supply chain disruptions. This has put a strain on ordering furniture and receiving it in a timely manner along with hefty price increases. In 2022, it’s predicted we’ll see a rise in the addition of vintage furniture to spaces. Whether it’s a beautiful arm chair or an attention-grabbing armoire, antique and vintage furniture is not only an eco-friendly option, but it adds character to any room.
Though these are only a handful of trends to consider, what matters most is you make your home unique to you. Keep these ideas in mind but choose pieces and styles that make you happy and align with your style.
