I am inspired by little changes in decor every day—and if you’re seeking inspo, I guarantee that these home decor trends for 2022 will leave you and your space feeling refreshed. After spending way more time at home over the last two years than ever expected, it’s safe to say the way a space is decorated has taken on greater meaning in our lives. Living in NYC and working from a tiny apartment means that my bedroom needs to play a large role in my day-to-day beyond just being a place to sleep. I want my room to feel like a larger reflection of my personality as I work, relax and binge-watch Arrested Development

Sometimes the easiest way to revamp a room is to switch which corners the couch and chair live in. If that doesn’t do the trick, a few clicks through the Urban Outfitters home section might! Mid-century modern furniture was all the rage in 2021 and sleek, retro-inspired pieces will continue to dominate the selection at retailers like Target and CB2.

For spring and summer months, adding floral bedding or woven accessories is the perfect way to bring the sunny elements of the outdoors into your space. You definitely don’t need to live on the beach to incorporate an at home coastal vibe.

However, unique and eclectic styles are slowly taking center stage, which means non-traditional shapes and colors are having a moment! If you want to lean in, a few funky accessories can revamp your mid-century style (I’m sure we all bought a fuzzy boucle chair, didn’t we?) without taking away from the room’s overall flow.

From knotted pillows to frameless asymmetrical mirrors, here are the funkiest 2022 decor trends to revamp your space.

Floral Bedding

There’s nothing better than climbing into fresh clean sheets after spending a long day in the sun—giving your bedding a summer refresh makes the feeling even better. Whether you’re dreaming of a weekend in the country, the Hamptons or just want to bring some girly accents into a city apartment, adding floral bedding will instantly romanticize your space. You can either go all out and get a full floral bedding set or pick accents (like the pillows or fitted sheet) to switch out for a fun pop of pattern.

Pink Pond Floral Fitted Sheet

A great trick for making your bedroom feel new is just by switching out your sheets or pillowcases. This delicate floral fitted sheet set from Hill House is very romantic and perfect for summer.

Knotical Accents 

Every year, a definitive shape seems to take over Instagram. We all remember when moons were trendy, right? This year, I’m predicting that your feed will be full of people tying the knot. Don’t worry, you won’t be scrolling through 100 wedding photos, but you will be seeing a lot of knot decor accents.

This trend started small with coffee table baubles and is working its way up to pillows and floor ottomans. It’s a fun structure to make your space look more interesting without making a big commitment to a wild shape.

Knot Pillow 

This pillow may not be comfortable to lay on, but it sure will look chic sitting on your couch (in all 11 colors). 

Leather Weave Chairs 

I work from home and I’ll admit that I spent quite a lot of time sitting around. For that reason, I love when something cool and comfortable comes back in style. I simply can’t get enough of the ever-practical leather weave chairs.

Leather weave chairs have started to gain popularity again with the resurgence of mid-century modern furniture. While the design is consistent, they come in quite a few different silhouettes. You can use them as dining chairs, an office chair or a low-slung accent chair in the living room.

Eclectic Dishware

The all-white apartment décor era is slowly coming to an end. The modern and neutral aesthetic is still classic and beautiful but you’ll see more personal decor elements start to take focus in 2022. A fun place to start is by adding eclectic, vintage-inspired dishes to display on your tablescape.

Pendant Light Fixtures

An easy way to make a room appear larger is to bring the focus up. A pendant light fixture is a great way to change your lighting and your mood! If you’re indecisive, consider buying a pendant light and switching between multiple shades so you’ve got options.

Surrealist Candles

Move over Lex Pott candles, a new shape is stepping in. Surrealist candles are a great way to kick your decor game up a notch, especially if you’re sick of the ~unique~ bubble and twist candles that were all over TikTok last year.

Surrealist candles in unexpected shapes are honestly too beautiful to burn, which makes them a longer-lasting decor option than the newest Diptyque scent. Funky candles have evolved from curved bases to legs, busts hands and even faces.
