The days of white supremacy are over. Big, bold tones will speak in 2022. There is a sense of a resurgence of bright interiors with more than a touch of color, with which to evoke happiness and provoke joy. Although there is a common misconception that rich tones make a room appear small, it really is not. With the right color palette you can enhance a room and make it appear larger.
Plant elements will continue to be a basic part of home decor. Plants have many health and emotional benefits indoors, beyond just being pretty. Like all living beings, they have an energy field that is more powerful the healthier they are, but after a year like 2024 in which we have become used to being more at home, we have learned to take better care of them.
It’s not just the bold shades that are in vogue, the creative ways they’re used are also experiencing a heyday. The color reaches special places like moldings, floors or ceilings. Wall paper also helps create a wow factor in many rooms and brings new forms of expression.
All the wanderlust we’ve revived from home in 2024 has officially started to make its way into our deco picks.

Be it a country, a hotel or a restaurant, the idea of bringing its style and beauty to our home inspires and makes us connect with those remote places. We can wink at the world through simple objects, such as neon lights that remind us of Las Vegas, a Berber carpet or a photograph of our favorite destination.
Relaxed décor in ultra-cozy interiors will reign supreme in 2022. Californian casual style will shine in all its glory. Warm bedding, neutral velvets, natural woods, caramel leathers, rustic porcelain pieces, and nature-inspired trends speak to today’s appetite for laid-back comfort.

In the aftermath of the pandemic, social media has suddenly been filled with countryside landscapes, postcards from picnics and images taken from old albums. It is what has been called “cottagecore”. Derived from the rise of this trend, tweed, plaids and crow’s feet have returned. On paper, on blankets… I’m sure you can’t resist going home.
Probably in 2022 we will have to practice saving, also in decoration, where antiques will coexist with contemporary furniture. An old table or an armchair are pieces of furniture that can be repainted or recovered to coexist with other current designs and add real soul to the space. One tip: vintage dip can start with small pieces, like an antique planter full of flowers or a collection of framed stickers hanging on the wall.
