5 Home Decorating Trends for 2022
I garden loving heart is all about some of the things that are hot right now.
And although certain looks, styles, and ideas are trending, it’s fun to find ways to incorporate them without completely changing what we already have.
So what will see start seeing this year that we can decorate with today?
For starters, we’ll be using more of what we have while sprucing up with more targeted decorating purchases.
What does that mean?
People will be more creative with the things they have and touch up their decor where needed for 2022.
Buy new throw pillows or linens for the bathroom.
And fresh scented candles.
You get what I mean.
These are easy-on-the-budget decor changes that can freshen up a space without breaking the bank.
Because we don’t have to spend thousands of dollars to decorate our home to stay on trend with what’s hot for 2022.
Be creative, use what you have, mix things up, and add a new item or two to make it feel more fresh.
Because this year’s budgets are certainly smaller.
In addition to budget-friendly decorating ideas, recycling materials and repurposing old items instead of replacing and buying new is TOTALLY on-trend for 2022.
Because there’s no need to buy new things when the old things still work!
The point is…Repurpose what you have.
Don’t be afraid to DIY.
You got this.
And if you are looking for unique pieces, skip the pricey retailers.
Forage outdoors for pretty seasonal greens and flowers.
Force branches or blooms indoors.
Make a simple wreath using foraged items from the garden.
Recycle building materials to make new decor.
There are so many ways you can decorate a space with things you have.
Sustainable decor is not only budget and eco-friendly, but it is also unique to you and your home.
So as much as we love to buy new things, consider how to incorporate the things you already have.
Plants, Flowers and More Organic Touches
Embracing the organics and gardening trend continues to grow in 2022.
And yes, gardening is on trend now! How fun is that?
As more people embrace the outdoors and bringing them in, natural surfaces and objects are making a resurgence.
From pottery to stone, terracotta to marble and the use of plants throughout, incorporating elements that come from nature is totally in.
And with more people staying and working from home these days, the gardening boom continues to grow.
So you are totally on trend if you already started growing things both indoors and out.

More Earth Tones
Warm whites, rich dark browns, and lighter camel tones are in for 2022 as more people move away from the crisp bright whites and gray tones we’ve been seeing.
And what better way to show off your plants and other organic elements than with warmer, earth tones.
With the vibe of our new home, it feels great to move away from the grays and embrace warmer whites and shades of brown.
From the travertine floor to the rich tone of the wood floors, I’m leaning towards warmer tones as we start painting and decorating each room.
And while we are on the subject of richer tones, I also saw that textured walls are back in this year too.
So I guess I should keep some of the faux finishes for a bit longer?
I’m keeping a few but not all.
We’ll have to see what makes the cut.
Vintage Decorating Trends for 2022
Whether you shop your attic or visit the local thrift store, vintage is in.
And if you have more modern or new decor, mix the old with the new.
From vintage dinnerware to big old crocks and crates, there are lots of ways to add vintage decor even if your decorating style isn’t totally vintage.
When we renovated our attic last year, I was sifting through old boxes of storage and was surprised at the cool things I found up there from my grandmother’s that I forgot I ever had!
So shop estate sales, visit the local thrift store, or head over to grandma’s to see what she doesn’t need anymore.
The unique pieces you find will make great statement pieces for your home.
Do I Need to Update My Home to Follow the Decorating Trends for 2022?
You don’t have to go crazy painting and updating rooms to be on trend.
If it’s something that matters to you, simple changes like swapping out a rug, throw pillows or other decor can make a huge impact in a space.
And just because something is or isn’t on trend, doesn’t mean you have to follow it.
I’m all about decorating a space with the things I love that bring me personal joy and satisfaction.
Embrace who you are and show off the things you have.
And the rest will fall into place.
