Do you want to know what 2022 has in store for us on the decoration side? Between the comeback of natural materials and new fashions, discover a preview of the 10 trends that will punctuate this new year!
1. MAKE WAY FOR SOFT MATERIALS
Faced with the events that marked the year 2021, the need for comfort and reassurance is increasingly felt. Many are looking for a cozy environment in which it is possible to recharge their batteries and relax. The house or apartment is thus transformed into a warm cocoon. Curly wool and velvet come together to create a cocooning atmosphere. Who doesn’t dream of curling up on a velvet sofa? Or snuggle up in a curly wool blanket? Soft, these materials are also synonymous with sophistication. They will give a chic and cozy side to your decor. We love it!
2. BET ON ROUNDNESS TO SOFTEN ITS DECORATION
Chairs, armchairs, sofas or tables, this year the furniture is rounded. Round shapes help create an interior that is reassuring and comforting. The curves also bring a touch of sensuality and elegance. They respond, just like soft materials, to a need to feel good at home. What are you waiting for to invite roundness into your modern living room?
3. SLOW DECORATION: THE NEW LEITMOTIF
Slow deco is undoubtedly the new mantra to adopt in 2022. At a time when environmental and social concerns are increasingly felt, it is becoming a means of expressing one’s values. Concretely, what are the rules to adopt for responsible decoration? Nothing could be simpler, we stop compulsive buying and we only keep the essentials, such is the golden rule. A tip for adopting this style: opt for durable furniture and sort through your decor to keep only what you need!
4. THE COMEBACK OF CERAMICS
The year 2022 will also witness the comeback of ceramics. Used since the dawn of time to design decorative objects, it is now back on the front of the stage. Table tops, crockery, vases or other trinkets, it invades all the decorative objects in the house. Why this comeback? A purely ecological and resistant material, ceramic is an essential ally for sustainable decoration. This comeback of ceramics also responds to a desire for authenticity and a return to basics. We love its incomparable raw charm! And you?
5. THE GREAT RETURN OF ARTISANAL CREATIONS
If ceramics are making a comeback, so are handcrafted creations. Decorative objects in ceramic, terracotta, glass, or wood, are introduced into our interiors to sublimate them. This comeback is not unexpected! If confinement has taught us anything, it’s the importance of supporting local merchants and creators. The trend of local consumption has been amplified by the events that have marked this year 2021. A need to return to sources and get out of this excessive consumption is increasingly felt, as evidenced by slow deco. The small pieces of local designers will therefore come to sprinkle our interiors for a responsible decoration!
6. WOOD, RATTAN, WICKER, OR CANE ALWAYS TAKE CENTER STAGE
Wood, rattan, caning, or even cane, natural materials are popular in many interiors. And 2022 will surely not end this trend. These natural materials are a way to breathe a green touch into our decorations. They will make you forget the hectic pace of the city by offering you a peaceful atmosphere. So what are you waiting for to bring a bit of nature to your interior? At home, we opted for wicker baskets and a pretty rattan armchair or chair. And for an even more natural touch, you can add pretty plants to enhance the atmosphere.
7. UPCYCLING FOR AN ETHICAL AND RESPONSIBLE DECORATION
Quezako upcycling? This new trend is starting to gain momentum. It consists of transforming old objects to give them a second life. It’s the art of making new out of old. We told you, ethical and responsible decoration is in the spotlight this year! And this takes various forms. In your bedroom, for example, you can opt for a bedside table in driftwood. It will have the advantage of bringing the character to your decor. To accompany your dining table, choose chairs made of recycled wood. Who said that consuming responsibly was complicated? And if you have a creative soul, you can also start upcycling yourself. Psst, at home we started by watching tutorials before getting started!
8. DECOR WITH SOUL
It is no coincidence that artisanal creations are making a comeback. The trend is towards singularity and personalization. Everyone seeks to have a unique and personal decoration. Craftsmanship lends itself well to this quest for uniqueness. But how to give soul to your decor? Some express their personality by displaying their passion. Movie posters for cinema lovers, vinyl records for retro fans, world maps for adventurers, or even a well-stocked library for literary people. Still, others opt for customizable furniture. It will have the advantage of sticking perfectly to your decor if you choose the right colors and the right shapes. So get started!
9. THE ART OR THE WAY TO STAND OUT
As we have seen, the trend is towards singularity! There is nothing more flattering than having unique decor that you can’t find anywhere else. What better way to stand out than using art? A true ode to expression, it will undoubtedly bring a touch of originality to your decor. 2022 highlights the graphic arts in particular. At home, we swear by face line art, these drawings of faces with clean and minimalist lines. And you, what artistic touch do you like the most?
10. THE PLANT MOTIF: A MUST
This enthusiasm for everything related to nature is also reflected in the patterns of wallpapers, cushions and fabrics of all kinds. The floral print is particularly on the rise. It spreads quickly in the different rooms of the house for our greatest happiness! This year, we put geometric patterns in the closet and we opt for wallpaper or cushions with plant shapes.
