“Having been locked indoors for over a year, there has been – and continues to be – a focus on regaining our connection to the natural world through the use of biophilic design principles, which means there will be an emphasis on creating soothing environments with natural ones Materials to create lighting and ventilation, incorporating plants and creating a visual connection to nature.” — Amanda Thompson, Aline Studio


Bold patterns and colors

“I expect lots of bold colors and patterns reminiscent of the ’60s and ’70s, and all shades of green as we continue to bring nature indoors. I particularly like the more muted greens like Sherwin Williams’ Evergreen Mist as seen in my own bedroom.” — Beth Diana Smith, Beth Diana Smith interior design

“In 2022 we are seeing traditional details making a big comeback. With so much change happening around the world in recent years, it’s no surprise that more and more people are craving a sense of comfort, timelessness, or even a bit of nostalgia in their homes. From pattern mixes, furniture with baseboards or flanges, to the incorporation of antique pieces, this new year is all about honoring our roots. And we couldn’t be happier about it!” — Bria Hammel, Bria Hammel Interiors

“We will see a push towards 3D art in 2022. People want to add whimsy, intrigue, and life to flat walls as we continue to spend more time in our homes. Any art that falls right off the wall and can be configured in a variety of ways is going to be hugely popular this year.” — Lauren Behfarin, Lauren Behfarin Design

“Sustainability has become an important issue for everyone, as it should be. A look at the sustainability of everything is a must-read and it’s really excellent that so many designers are trying to learn what materials are best for the long-term health of our ecosystem. Luckily there’s plenty to choose from!” — Robert and Cortney Novogratz for The Shade Store

“The next year will bring a deeper awareness of our spaces and the impact they have on our emotions and well-being. We will see more spaces that have personality and personal connections to their owner’s interests, hobbies and joys.” — Marie Cloud, design studio Indigo Pruitt


1970s decor inspiration

“The decor and colors of the seventies are back. We’ll see more terracotta, sage and mustard hues, as well as hallmarks of mid-century furniture – wooden legs on cabinets and tables, teak tones and heavily textured fabrics.” — Malka help, Think chic interiors

“Kids will continue to drive design spaces and homework will not go away. As the world turns, people can continue to opt out of crowded classrooms and opt for more private spaces, creating ‘mini corporate offices’ for their smallest bosses. These rooms are equipped with interactive smart boards, high-speed WiFi and many plug-in sockets. Homework rooms can also later be repurposed as a student’s start-up headquarters or an adult’s home office.” — Georgia Zikas

“Expect English roll arm sofas, wingbacks, simple dining tables based on antique styles and pieces with details and a bit of history. As for materials, we will see many more natural materials become popular again. Marble, real wood, linen, mohair—things that feel more organic and comfortable.” — Erin Gates


Multifunctional spaces

“People are starting to understand that they can live with less, especially after the last year. People will start downsizing or staying in their current homes and getting creative with how their spaces can be multifunctional. For example: your living room to have part office. Or office workout rooms.” — Amy Leferink, Inner Impressions

“White oak furniture with curves has a fresh and soft, wavy feel. From curved corners in walls and cabinets to curved backs of sofas, dining chairs and arched cabinets, the angular furnishing line is softened.” — Michelle Harrison McAllister

“The trend for 2022 is a return to enduring style. We’re seeing the impact of our ‘buy and throw away’ consumerism on our planet, and I think people will realize that developing a personal, lasting style is not only beautiful and unique, but also good for the environment.” — kate patterson, Perlmutter Freiwald


Bring nature indoors

“More and more people are upgrading their outdoor living spaces, which means stylish outdoor furniture. I’m seeing more intentionally designed outdoor living spaces that don’t sacrifice style and expand families’ living and entertaining areas indoors.” — Mimi Meacham, Marian Louise designs


Colorful window treatments

“In 2022 we will see many colors and patterns, especially in window treatments. They play a key role in the design because they are the adornment of the room and they can really make an impression. Whether it’s curtains or shades or drapes, patterns with a burst of two to three colors will play a strong role in design over the next year.” — Martyn Lawrence Bullard for The Shade Store


Pantone Color of the Year 2022: Very Peri
