Spring is just around the corner, which means out with the old and in with the new. If you’re looking to refresh your home, here are 5 trends we are loving in 2022…
More Good Ol’ Classics.
A crisp white t-shirt, an Elvis Presley song, a quote from Winnie the Pooh, a bouquet of fresh flowers; these are all classics, things that just don’t get old and never go out of style. The same rings true for this home trend that we loved well before 2022 and will be loving for years to come. Arches: The drift away from hard, modern lines gives off a very whimsical, feminine feeling without sacrificing that clean look that we all know and love. Arches might be an ancient
Roman classic but they are also one way to add timeless character to your home, whether it’s a cabinet, a mirror or an entryway.
More Casual Comfort.
Laid-back, lived in spaces for every day and every one. If we learned anything over the last two years, it’s the importance of comfortable spaces and places throughout the home for reading, playing, and living. So forget about polished perfection and lean into casual comfort. How? It’s all about feeling. The space shouldn’t feel ‘off limits’ or ‘for company only’. To achieve the look, reach for warm textures, add too many pillows and throws, limit the amount of decor, and maximize places to sit and relax.
More Playfulness With Direction.
Sometimes it’s as easy as changing up the direction and that was the case for this bathroom in The Woodhall at Pinehurst. The vertical direction of the shiplap gives the appearance of higher ceilings, making this smaller powder room feel bigger. Whether you are laying tile, putting up wallpaper, or adding shiplap, make sure you play around with direction. You’d be surprised at what a big difference it can make in any space.
Home decor should tell a ‘tale as old as time’. While we love the ease of a quick online transaction or a pit stop at HomeSense for a decor item, we love the stories behind decor even more. Vintage pieces passed down from generation to generation or unique antique shop finds make your home way more eclectic and trendy than any HomeSense purchase ever could. Focus on the story and less on the instant satisfaction and your home will quickly become one of your favourite places to be.
More Emphasis on Hardware.
Clean white cabinets aren’t going anywhere, which is A-OK in our books, because hardware is the real star of the show. This is good news for those just looking for a small renovation project; no need to change out your cabinetry, just switch up your hardware. We love contrast, playing with different metals, and making sure that the hardware has just the right amount of detail. The key is really the latter and there is a fine line between overly detailed and the perfect amount, so take a few samples home to your cabinets before committing.
