Last year, interior design trends were centered on functionality and creating multipurpose spaces as we spent more time living and working at home. Many times over the past year, my fiancé and I had to get creative by transforming corners of our home to become a dedicated office, gym, or restaurant.
However, things will look different in 2022 as we begin to return to some normalcy, such as traveling and returning to the office. The focus on creating multipurpose spaces will still be essential. But, we’ll see a strong emphasis on personalization and luxury, truly making a space your own.
Here are the interior design trends for 2022 that I love and how to incorporate them into your home.
Japandi combines Scandinavia and Japan’s best interior style elements, focusing on simplicity, nature, and calming minimalism. Think clean lines, de-cluttered spaces, natural materials, and functional minimal furniture. The best part is that you don’t have to completely re-do your home to incorporate Japandi interior style elements. Start small by adding a vase or textural side table to a cozy corner of your home. Add this Yukon natural dining table to your dining room if you’re ready to make a big change. It’s the perfect minimalistic staple piece that embodies the Japandi trend.

Wood Laid in Patterns
If I had to pick one favorite interior design trend for 2022, it would be wood-laid in patterns. I love the beauty and warmth of ornamental herringbone wood floors. It makes me nostalgic for classic Parisian decor. You’ll almost always find herringbone wood flooring in most Parisian flats and homes.

Ribs and Flutes
2022 will be the year of texture. Say hello to adding ribbed and fluted detailing to your home—your walls, furniture, kitchen cabinetry, and more. Ribbed and fluted furniture adds a bit of French flair and elegance to your home. Get creative and find focal points of your home to add a bit of texture, such as this fluted corner bookcase or functional ribbed buffet.

From curvature pieces of furniture and rounded mirrors to curvy architecture, the trend of rounded edges will be popping up everywhere in 2022. Curves are an integral part of the biophilic trend that seeks to connect the home environment more closely to nature. Curves are feminine and graceful, creating an environment of softness, warmth, and safety. This curvy sofa is on the top of my decor list this year. The curves are soft and soothing, immediately creating an ambiance of comfort at first glance.
The Pantone 2022 color of the year is Very Peri, a bold blue with a violet red undertone. This uplifting shade embodies a lively, joyful attitude and dynamic presence—encouraging courageous creativity and imaginative expression. You can expect to see Very Peri show up in everything from art, decor items, and furniture. I love this pillow color case in Veri Peri. Purchase a few pillowcases and place them on your favorite chair to add a pop of color to any room of your home.
