Trends I’m loving in 2022

Neutral color palettes with pumped up textures

If you crave the effortless look of a neutral room, there are a few tips to follow for maximum impact. Choose a variety of neutrals, tans, creams and black for contrast. Add multiple wood tones as well as metallics to have the same effect. Find natural textures from jute, linen in woven blankets, rugs, pillows and wall hangings.

Tone-on-tone rooms

When you can’t get enough of your favorite color, use it twice! Tone-on-tone kitchens, bathrooms and laundry rooms have a sophisticated feel. It’s a great way to surround yourself with something you love while showcasing your color coordinating prowess.

Large scale patterns

Block print comes and goes, but what we’re seeing in 2022 has such a comforting organic feel, you’ll want it for every rug in your house.


Go ahead and call me a romantic, as I just purchased a Tudor style home. Romantic curves are popping up everywhere: rounded waterfall edges on end tables, pill-shaped mirrors and coffee tables, curved back sofas and chairs, oh my! Put these items in a neutral color room to make a huge design impact.


I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the progress toward a more earth-friendly design industry. Gone are the days of replacing your interior fashion every five years. Nature-made materials and more durable fabrics such as Crypton® offer interior fashion longer life with less maintenance.
