Thinking about sprucing up your home and freshening up your space? Rounded up below are the latest trending home design tips and tricks that will get your inner interior design thoughts flowing.
1. Dual-Purpose Spaces
While it’s not an entirely new concept, the idea of maximizing rooms to accommodate your needs, interests, and hobbies gained popularity in 2021 – and is sticking in 2022. More people are working from home and spending more time at home, so it makes sense! A spare bedroom can become a yoga studio, your home office can become your home gym, or the craft room can become an indoor garden. Creativity is key!
2. Mixing Old With New
Gone are the days when your family’s antiques and hand-me-down furniture were undesirable. Eclectic is officially back in style. Mix and match prints and color, from pillows and area rugs to walls and art. Repurpose or refurbish an old dresser, shop for secondhand furniture like wingback chairs, reclaimed wood coffee tables, or worn leather barstools, then add a classic spin to a modern-day home. With a touch of vintage flare, a home can instantly feel timeless, warm, lived-in, and full of character.
3. Nature Tones
Neutrals have persisted over the last few years as popular color choices for walls, furniture, accents, and décor. Now, splashes of blue and green hues are making a comeback. Now’s the perfect time to channel nature for your home makeover inspiration. Include wood accents, whether it’s cabinetry, ceiling beams, mantels, shelving, or furniture. Decorate with houseplants of various shapes and sizes, succulents, and fresh-cut, colorful flowers.
