Top decor trends for 2022

After a tumultuous couple of years, we're all about manifesting positivity, comfort and calm in 2022. There's no better place to start than the home, and this sentiment is driving the latest home decor trends. From calming candles to vibrant wall art and an abundance of greenery, we've rounded up the ultimate accessories and looks you need to update your home decor this year.


Ancient ornaments

Get set to usher in a playful nod to antiquity as candles and statues referencing ancient Greek and Roman busts cement their must-have status. Sculptural candle holders, column-shaped ornaments and classical bookends offer an heirloom feel that emphasises the trend and can be used to create depth and balance on a console table or chic coffee table vignette. 


Artisanal accents

Expect to see a focus on earthenware vases and decorative bowls and trays—an extension of our growing appreciation of handcrafted tableware. Tinted in the same brown and terracotta tones, glass accent pieces are also emulating the rougher textures and organic shapes of artisanal treasures, which sit seamlessly alongside grounded timber and marble finishes.​


Vibrant accessories

2022 is championing joyful hues painted across a range of home decor, from pop art objects to wall art. The latter offers an easy way to enjoy an array of colour, particularly when prints are mixed and matched to create a vibrant gallery wall. This trend evokes optimism, whether it's filtered through a maximalist or Danish pastel lens, while many will bring spontaneity to pared-back homes by opting for a few select statement pieces.


Nature inside the home

This year, we will consolidate our connection to the natural world by embracing an abundance of greenery inside the home. Rather than settle for a solitary plant placed in the corner of a room, greenery is becoming the centre of attention as we play with lush foliage in different pots and baskets, styled on stands, shelves and tables at varying heights.


Curated candles

As we continue to crave restorative spaces, considered collections of candles will prove popular for achieving ambience and a calming mood. The hospitality world is exploring the power of bespoke scent, and homes will follow suit as we lean into fragrant candles and diffusers that help transform everyday spaces into luxury sanctuaries.​


Tufted texture

Tufted texture is trending for 2022, with the expressive design statement taking off across rugs and cushions that deliver a global look without compromising comfort. Much like last year's bouclé boom, raised tufting offers a fresh way to add visual interest to slick shapes and neutral colours, ensuring our home environments remain cosy and inviting.


Curved decor

Look out for soft lines, arcs and curves; these rounded forms are popping up across all manner of home decor. Inherently calming curved ornaments, vases and pots can be arranged to create an artful shelfie—though the well-rounded trend is also suited to mirrors and sculptural pendant lights that bring a mid-century feel to modern homes.
