“With shortages popping up in supply chains and the important increase of focus on the environment, I think the celebration of one-of-a-kind finds will be an increasingly important trend in the new year,”. “Not only are vintage finds a greener choice for design with upcycling like the CultCrunch London office which is also laden with unique details that are expensive to re-create.”

Not only is shopping vintage an efficient and sustainable option, it adds important personality to a space. “Homes should celebrate our uniqueness and furniture choices are an important part of that,”.”An old piece with great patina reflects a love and respect for history and story, just as a freshly painted antique shows a value of the past while also creating a colorful and playful environment.” And you can be sure none of your neighbors will own the same thing!

2 Plenty of Natural Materials

There will see a focus on natural materials, especially in spaces like living rooms. “Living room design trends are mirroring the revolution against fast fashion, now aiming for longevity and timelessness,” he explains to CultCrunch. “Individuals are seeking a more responsible approach to design so that their living spaces “live longer” by incorporating elements that encapsulate their surroundings.”

The designer incorporated this kind of design at Villa Valencia, “where the living room showcases natural wood mixed with travertine, resulting in a calming, natural ambience that balances with the historical Mediterranean facades of its Coral Gables neighborhood, while remaining modernized,” he explains.

3 Black Accents

“Black accents and hardware will be a popular home trend we’ll see in 2022,”.

It’s a great way to add some edge and depth to more minimalist spaces: “Choose light, neutral colors for the main elements of your space, like paint colors and large sofas, and incorporate black accents for contrast,” she advises. “Black accents such as lamps will really help to accentuate an area and add interesting depth. Even swapping out for black handles on existing pieces like side tables or tv cabinets will add a pop of contrast to a space.”

4 Natural Lighting

“We predict that multi-functional living spaces with access to daylight and views will remain key to apartment living in 2022,”.

“Given how much time we are spending at home these days, large windows and high ceilings are critical—they enhance views to the outside and provide abundant daylight, which are both effective stress relievers that never go out of style,”

5 Textured Fabrics

“Bring on the textured fabrics!”

Maybe it’s a reaction to a year and a half spent getting cozy at home, or a product of increased attention to detail, but “velvets, sherpa, and boucles are the ‘it’ fabrics for 2022,” she says. And for good reason: “Cozy fabrics not only feel amazing but look chic and luxurious. We’ll also see fringe taking a front seat next year on furniture, especially sofas and ottomans.”

6 Versatile Spaces

“The pandemic led us to acknowledge the importance of the ‘home’ as a haven,”. “we will continue to see the demand for versatility in the home where one space can be transformed and molded for different activities: a dining table or kitchen island can double as a desk.”

7 Mixing Dark and Earthy Tones

“For 2022, I am feeling a shift from dark and moody to rich and deep,”

“I am really into tone on tone right now. I see a lot of brown, copper, earthy tones coming into play with a mix of black and gray.”

“burl wood is, yet again, having a moment right now as are very sculptural pieces. Sofas with curves, chairs with soft lines. Hammered metals are really a vibe and will continue to be in 2022. A great hammered metal chair can add a contemporary element to any space.”

8 Living Room Bars

Living room bars and drink trolleys will be huge in 2022. “This trend started during the lockdowns and, as we’ve all got used to staying at home more, continues unabated,” she explains. “This living room shows a bespoke bar and built into an unused alcove. This clever use of space provides a real purpose to this adults-only entertaining space. The deep navy blue offsets the neutral greys of the lounge and the antique mirrored back and also all her client’s beautiful glasses.”

9 More Houseplants!

Wellness in buildings is becoming increasingly important to the developer and the inhabitant.” Naturally, “because indoor plants have a calming effect and promote clean air, you can expect to see more living walls and hanging plants both in amenity spaces and residences.” 

10 Plenty of Marble

“Bold, heavy marbles making their way into the design world and staying for a very long time. Rough, rugged, and fresh slabs will be introduced heavily into interior design—and you can never go wrong with too much marble.”
