Did you know that bringing nature indoors adds authentic greenery to your home? Imagine the fulfillment and joy of watching a plant bloom. As this trend trickles down into homes, we can all agree that it purifies the air and brings a sense of being part of the outdoors while still being in the comfort of your home.
In light of architectural designs and strides, a flexible room has become a must-have especially because most people cannot afford a separate room for everything. Thankfully, this does not mean making expensive renovations.
Getting multipurpose furniture is your secret weapon to achieving a flexible lifestyle. Whether it is a desk that doubles up into a side table or into a coffee table, these sleek and clever designs make your life easier. A multifunctional space on the other hand has the freedom to be a kid’s recreation room, an extra guest room, a home office, or even a place to relax and unwind.
Some trends withstand the test of time while others get outdated fast. Homeowners are now more conscious to choose décor, furniture, or themes that will remain chic and stylish for the long haul. Besides, having to update or trade items year by year can be exhausting and quite expensive. So, why not save yourself the trouble and invest in a timeless style?
Bold colors and patterns add an element of pizazz to any household. While it might be considerably easy to randomly play around with trendy colors, be mindful of creating a cohesive theme.
If you are new to bold patterns and colors, you can start easily. Play around with accents like throw pillows, rugs, mats, or wall art against a neutral background to spruce up your surroundings. On the other hand, explore and get creative with mixing and matching patterns or colors against each other.

And this is where a splash of maximalist design comes into play. Everything from furnishings, rags, and art all the way to unique statement pieces reflects an individual’s expression and freedom.
Interior design trends in 2022 have taken things up a notch with high-end outdoor oases. Gone are the days when the décor was only limited to the insides of our homes.

Remote-controlled shelves that slide to reveal a TV and self-shading windows are among other high-end tech gadgets that are becoming a norm in homes in 2022.
