1. The Seventies Reimagined
From the reemergence of avocado green and harvest gold hues to elements like velvet couches, macrame, and rattan, the era of boho and disco is making a big comeback.

2. Botanical is Blooming
Related to the 1970s trend when it was also popular, botanical decor is popping up in everything from wallpaper and art to throw pillows and rugs. Floral and plant-based prints are a cheerful way to connect our homes to the outdoors.

3. Farmhouse Forever
Farmhouse style will endure, particularly in kitchens, where its warm and cozy vibe influences the space where most of us spend the majority of our time at home.

4. Green Galore
Whether it’s serene and hopeful sage, warm and earthy olive, or a deep and stimulating jewel-tone, green is showing up everywhere as the dominant color of 2022. Green, calming and familiar while also linked to nature and growth, is a flexible color with limitless possibilities.

5. Inside Outside
After last year’s understandable inclination to expand our homes to embrace outdoor living, the trend continues this year with the focus on maximizing comfort. Spaces that feel like they could be indoors – from roomy, comfortable furniture to elements that add light, heat, and protection from the elements, redefine the meaning of “indoor” and “outdoor.”

6. Make it Organic and Natural
Natural materials continue to grow in popularity this year, with an emphasis on rustic textures that are discernibly handmade. Natural stone sinks and countertops are making a statement in many 2022 kitchens, along with natural and reclaimed woods.

7. Or, Make it Bold and Unusual
Statement-making materials like industrial-style cogent steel, burnt wood, and distressed texture tile allow for imaginative expression in the details of your home.

8. WFH Elevated
Strictly 9-5 office hours are a thing of the past for many in the workforce and chances are this trend will stay with us for some time to come. A polished and professional workspace that functions well and looks great both in-person and on-camera is a necessity. 

9. A Room for All Reasons
Speaking of working from home, the 2021 interest in multi-purpose spaces endures into 2022. With people sharing their homes for work, studying, cooking, eating, working out, and relaxing, flexible spaces that can easily be used for different purposes make our homes feel more comfortable and efficient.

10. Generations Living Together
A 2019 survey found that 41% of Americans buying a home were considering accommodating an elderly parent or an adult child. Interest continues to grow in ADUs, strengthened by last year’s desire to have family closer to home in challenging times.
