Learn about the new 2022 design trends and discover how Red’s selection can help make your design dream a reality.
Implement Comfortable Design Over Everything
When you visualize what comfort means nowadays, it may be necessary to rethink previously held ideas. No longer do you have to reside in an English cottage a la “The Holiday” for your home to be a cozy haven. Imagine well-worn couches that still have their shape and a dining table made entirely of hand-hewn wood. Plush pillows and chunky throws add a warm layer to your living spaces. You have plenty of soft bedding, both on the bed and nearby in stylish round woven baskets for storage. The lighting can be drawn primarily from lamps with warm bulbs, but candles and a fireplace are also at your disposal. These details match the cottage design trending in 2022; comfortable and cozy is the name of the game.
Bring the Outside Indoors
Building on the idea of cottage coziness, nothing adds an organic touch to a space like living accents. Greenery, dried florals and potted plants really help to ground a space while adding life and personality. Floral additions from the outside garden can help brighten the indoors no matter the season. White-washed lanterns or decorative boxes in varying sizes can be filled with bouquets of fresh or faux flowers to add accents to the room.
Brighten and Warm Spaces With Soft Colors
To help add even more depth to your space, compliment white-washed wainscoting to the walls with elements of delicate patterns and light-colored greens and greenery.
Light blues used in transitional spaces, like bathrooms and hallways in your home, create a palate-cleansing effect for movement between busier and more decorated areas. Light blue colors are calming and mimic the outside air, and we will continue to see them being used frequently in 2022. When used in a pattern combined with neutrals, blue can be either light or dark and is efficient at adding movement to a space.
While cottage flair is soft and relaxed, there’s still room for a little metallic accenting. Gold and brass pair well with light greens, peaches, pinks, and neutrals. Wood and metallic votive centerpieces can provide warm lighting while showcasing fresh eucalyptus that emits a soothing fragrance as it dries.
Incorporate Patterns and Natural Elements
Create a more authentic feel to your version of cottage comfort with patterns and natural elements in your home. Delicate designs subtly move the space and add interest. Earthy additions create a balance between the soft patterns of the interior and the rustic outside world. Common natural-material accessories include:
Plumes and feathers
Oil paintings and prints
