Design Trends to Kick Off 2022
We’re only one month in and we’ve seen some key trends that are taking off!
People want to brighten up their space while making an at-home oasis.
Moving away from some of the traditional aspects, people are ready to take risks and have fun!
1. A pop of colour
2022 is the year of using colour to add your own unique flare to a space. Be it a paint job, a coloured back splash or an accent wall,
incorporating colour may be the final touch a room needs. Sherwin Williams and Benjamin Moore released their 2022 colour of the year
in January. It’s no surprise that they’ve both chosen a soothing, earthy green tone that’s filled with character. Make use of colours with happy,
positive associations to help create a sense of oasis in your own space.
2. Patterned Pieces
Patterns are making their come back! What used to be a design saved for your grandma’s wallpaper has made a full circle to become a hot new
design trend and a statement art piece in any space. From subtle to bold, illustrated to symmetry, mosaics to spirals – patterns can energize a room
while providing contrast and balance.
3. Accent Walls
While not a new design technique, accent walls are becoming more popular. They’re being used as a way to feature different colours or patterns,
or incorporate that bold marble-look porcelain slab you had in mind – without committing to an entire space. It is a unique way to bring individuality
into a space, tie together the colour schemes, add excitement, or create a focal point that may otherwise be overlooked.
