Top 2022 Home Design Trends

The hottest home design trends of the new year are awfully cool—think neutral palettes that lean into gray; touches of sage green; lush, plant-rich outdoor spaces; chic curved furnishings and crisp light wood. Read on to see how The Addison’s townhomes are already aligning with 2022’s seven top trends. 

Neutral Color Palettes

Neutral colors not only provide a versatile backdrop for one’s own personal decorating style, but they help create a calming environment. The Addison’s three interior design packages—Modern, Urban and Nordic—all adhere to neutral palettes that center on gray, ivory and natural wood grain. “[In] 2022, [we] will see more residential designs sticking to these classics,” Phillip Ash, the founder of Pro Paint Corner, told The Spruce. “Think gray, beige, white and brown with warm or rich undertones as wall paint colors. Natural earth colors are also trending as people desire for Zen-like feeling at home, so we’ll see more green shades.”

Green Accents

Whether it’s a plant, a throw pillow, ottoman or lounge chair, touches of green will be cropping up all over interiors in 2022. “Bringing the outside in; it’s a trend we’ve spoken about for a while, but next year it will come into fruition,” Ben White, design and trade expert at Swyft, told House Beautiful. “We will see green and natural tones blended into our interiors through the use of plants, timber and terracotta. We might also see the use of green velvet sofas, sage or olive painted walls or jute textured rugs.” At The Addison, every sunlit home is an environment where plants thrive, making a living green accent an easy addition.

Rounded and Curved Furnishings

Whether it’s mirrors, picture frames, side tables and dining tables—curves are ahead for 2022. These rounded corners serve to open wall space and interiors, providing a sense of softness and flow—something that’s already designed into every unique, open floor plan at The Addison. “Curvalicious furniture was a big design trend in 2021 and it’s set to stay,” Alex Liepman, founder of Drool Art, told The Zoe Report. “So you can bring those same softer edges into the wall art you display for a clean, complementary finish.” Curved wall art or furnishings can “instantly make a room feel cozy and safe.”

All-Season Outdoor Spaces

In 2022, versatile outdoor space will continue to be a highly coveted home design feature. At The Addison, dedicated open-air spaces are an essential element of every residence. All homes open to either a main-level patio or an elevated terrace. Accessed via floor-to-ceiling glass doors, they are designed to be extensions of the interior space. They serve as private places to entertain, relax and enjoy LA’s sunny year-round climate. “Outdoor dining spaces need to be just as interesting, vibrant and have as much design dimension as the indoors,” noted international design firm Shea Design in a recent article. “By creating a dining space where guests want to be year-round, operators can maximize the value of their investment in the space.”

Light Woods

From cabinets to flooring, sandy-hued and gray-toned woods will be favored in the coming year, in part because these softer, neutral shades add to the bright, airy feel of a space. Luckily for residents of The Addison, all three interior design schemes tap into lighter wood textures, especially the Nordic scheme, which is steeped in soft, light tones and crafted with inviting naturalistic finishes. Nordic interiors include light, wide-plank oak floors and a bright kitchen with white marbleized Caesarstone counters and a mix of glossy feather gray and wood grain Snaidero cabinetry. “For natural light to be at its best, light floors can do their part to bounce light across the room,” notes online interior design company Decorilla. “It feeds a more minimalistic look, especially if you have a few brighter colors that you want to display.”

Black Accents

From lamps and vases to kitchen and bath cabinetry, black accents will be making a strong statement in 2022. Beyond standalone decor, grayscale kitchen cabinets, richly stained floors and pewter cabinetry—like those used in the kitchens and baths in The Addison’s Urban and Modern design palettes—add interest and edge to otherwise brightly-hued, minimalist spaces. “Choose light, neutral colors for the main elements of your space, like paint colors and large sofas, and incorporate black accents for contrast,” Channa Alvarez, interior designer at Living Spaces advised in House Beautiful. “Black accents such as lamps will really help to accentuate an area and add interesting depth. Even swapping out for black handles on existing pieces like side tables or TV cabinets will add a pop of contrast to a space.”
