“After over a year of being shut inside, there has been and will continue to be a focus on regaining our connection to the natural world through the use of biophilic design principles, meaning there will be an emphasis on creating calming environments with natural lighting and ventilation, incorporating plants and creating a visual connection with nature.”

“This year will bring about a deeper awareness of our spaces and the impact they have on our emotions and wellbeing. We will see more spaces that have personality and personal ties to interests, hobbies and pleasures of its owner.”

— Marie Cloud

Homework Rooms

“Children continue to drive design spaces and homework is not going away. As the world turns, people may continue to opt out of full classroom settings and opt in for more private spaces and create ‘mini corporate offices’ for their smallest bosses. These rooms are equipped with interactive smart boards, high-speed WiFi and plenty of plug-in outlets. Homework rooms can also be repurposed later for a college student’s startup headquarters or an adult’s home office.” — Georgia Zikas

A Return to Tradition

“Expect English roll arm sofas, wingbacks, simple dining tables based on antique styles and pieces with detail and some history. For materials, we’re going to see a lot more natural materials become popular again. Marble, real wood, linens, mohair and things that feel more organic and nice to the touch.”

— Erin Gates

Multifunctional Spaces

“People are starting to understand that they can live with less, especially after the past year. People will start to downsize or stay in their current homes and become creative with how their spaces can be multifunctional. For example: having your living room be part office. Or office-workout rooms.”

— Amy Leferink, Interior Impressions

Curved Furnishings

“Furnishings with curves bring a fresh and soft wavy feeling. From curved corners within walls and cabinets to curved backs of sofas, dining chairs and arched cabinets, the angular line of furnishing is softening.” — Michelle Harrison-McAllister

Lasting Style

“The trend for 2022 is a return to lasting style. We are seeing the effects of our ‘buy it and throw it away’ consumerism on our planet, and I think people will realize that developing a personal, lasting style is not only beautiful and unique, but good for the environment as well.”

— Kate Patterson, Perlmutter Freiwald

Bringing the Outdoors In

“More people are enhancing their outdoor living spaces, which means stylish outdoor furniture. I see more intentionally-designed outdoor living spaces that don’t sacrifice on style and expand the families’ living and entertaining space in the home.”

— Mimi Meacham, Marian Louise Designs

Colorful Window Treatments

“In 2022, we’re going to see a lot of color and patterns, especially within window treatments. They play a key role within design because they are the jewelry of the room and can really make an impact. Whether it be drapery, shades or sheers, patterns with a burst of two to three colors will play a strong role in design next year.”
