If you don't love any of the trending styles, don't sweat it. You don't have to add or change up your home decor based on the trends. What's most important is that youcurate a space that you love and that works for you and your family. Because, while we love playing with trends and making them our own, we also recognize that not every trend is for everybody and the most important thing is that your space is a place that you love. So if you love something that's not trending right now don't change a thing just because everybody else is.

Natural elements are making a big comeback in 2022. We've seen the rise in popularity throughout the last few years, but with individuals being able to spend more time out in nature and outside because of the pandemic, people are bringing those elements back into the house with them. What does that look like? A natural color palette using colors, tones, and shades that you can find in nature, lots of natural wood elements, and greenery. So much Greenery.

The last few years have seen people out of the office and into the home office. Home offices have obviously risen in popularity because of the pandemic, but in 2022 you'll see intentional home office spaces that are highly designed and curated. No more desks in corners with kitchen table chairs. Home offices in 2022 will see a full design makeover that features a strong color palette, trending design elements, and lots of dark shades of color.
In homes where there isn't a room for a dedicated office, you will still see curated office spaces in shared rooms. Little nooks and corners of rooms will be turned into dedicated offices, and these little spaces will be just as well designed as full office rooms.

Another home decor trend we’re going to see more of in 2022 is curved furniture. As opposed to very strong, masculine lines in Furniture Design, we're going to see a lot more curved, soft lines in furniture design in the coming year. Curved furniture has been rising in popularity and we'll see more and more of it coming to market in 2022. Curved furniture works great to soften a room, and can be combined with more angular pieces to create a very balanced effect in a space. You can also fill an entire space with curved furniture to create a very soft, feminine, romantic feel in a room.

Vintage and retro designs have been popular trends over the past few years, and in 2022 we will see a focus on the 70s. Incorporating colors and elements of the 70s into your home is an easy way to hop on this trend without breaking the bank. The great thing about this trend is that you can bring the 70s Back to Life by popping into a local thrift store, heading to a flea market, or rummaging through your grandma's house to find cool, authentic elements for this trending design style.
We have somecustom walnut floating shelves in our kitchen that are just waiting for a few pops of 70s design and decor.
Floors are going to have a big moment in 2022. We've seen a little bit of this now at the end of this year, but next year watch out for herringbone patterns in wood floors all over the place. These herringbone patterns are a callback to an era long gone, but with a fresh twist. Using popular wood tones to create a herringbone pattern in your home is a timeless look when you do it right.
We're also going to see a resurgence of patterned tiles, think penny tiles with cool designs in bathrooms. The focus on the floor is a fun design trend that we're excited to see evolve into something very creative.
While there will still definitely be a place for minimalism and minimalist trends in 2022, Grandmillennial is the maximalism trend that you'll be seeing a lot of online. Sometimes called granny Chic, Grandmillennial style is a visual pattern mash coupled with plush soft textures, bright colors, and anything that looks like it would belong in a rich Southern grandmother's home.
While most Grandmillennial designs start with a white base, we've also seen people commit to the full Grandmillennial look with pink or green walls.
What design trend are you most excited to see in 2022?
