Marin Home Design Trends for 2022 and beyond

Marin Home Design Trends for 2022 and beyond

Spring is here and the living could just be a little easy. Put your warm blankets and cozy comforts away because spring is on the horizon, bringing with it plenty of fresh inspiration for home decor. Whether you want to go all out, or just make a few minor adjustments, just do it, from groovy vibes to figurative art and design, these six interior design trends will instantly spring forward any space in your home.

Bring the outside in

You live in Marin (or have your sights set on moving here) so this one is a no-brainer. As I suggested in my Marin Design Trends 2021 article, you want to focus on how you can create more space in your home by including your yard and even your view into your design plan for 2022. This could mean cutting back trees to frame a stunning distant landscape or planting some color now that you and your family will enjoy in the months to come. And what could be better than outdoor couches and a firepit to create a second livingroom to enjoy until the rains come next autumn.  

Be Worldly

Thanks to the relaxation of COVID-19 restrictions, many people are opting for travel and abundance this spring. So let your worldly intentions guide your interior decorating vision. It’s a great way to get you excited for the upcoming summer months and to create a visual connection with nature.

Earthy floral patterns

This spring, we’ll see a lot of bright colors in our homes. To balance out earthy tones, opt for Pantone’s color of the year, periwinkle Very Peri, as well as violet shades, RAF blue and forest greens.

Figurative and fresh

In terms of design and art trends, art collectors are looking for human connection through figurative works of art as we enter the post-COVID era. Be sure to visit the world-class SF MOMA to get inspired, then hit the yard sales and Etsy for some terrific finds on affordable original art - or make some of your own!

Lines that curve

Boxy elements and minimalist lines be gone. Curved designs, on the other hand, will continue to rise in popularity through 2022, and is the perfect way to bring a soft, fresh element into your home for spring.

That 70s show

While not for everyone, styles from the 70s are going strong once again. What's better than swinging on your porch? Swinging in your living room. If you're a renter or you simply aren't up for the challenge of hanging a chair in your living room, opt for a papasan instead, and you'll be killing two birds with one stone, as rattan is seeing a comeback, as well. What else? The art of macrame, which can be traced back to ancient times, is now seen in knotted fiber wall hangings and elaborate macrame plant holders.

If you're tired of the all white interior design trend, you'll be excited to know that bright, bold colors are back in style. Colors such as hunter green, mustard yellow and dusty rose (yes, the color of your grandparent's bathroom) are making a splash again in home decor, as is gingham.

If you don't want to commit to a fully retro palette, consider a few mustard yellow velvet throw pillows or a deep green lampshade to mix this trend into your living.

One design theme that I can support is the use of velvet. There's just something about velvet that screams luxurious. From spunky, fun velvet couches to throw pillows, velvet is a great way to to add texture to your home. and what pairs with velvet? A gorgeous Turkish rug! While seen as a truly classic piece,  these vintage rugs were a hit in the '70s. And many would agree, there's nothing better than a gorgeous vintage rug when it comes to making a statement in your home. From bedrooms to living rooms to kitchens, to halls and even bathrooms, a well-kept vintage rug is well worth the cost and will hold up for years to come.

Last one - wallpaper! If the idea of wallpaper makes you run for cover, it's time to rethink this once common home decor item. From oversized florals to textured, geometric patterns, wallpaper is a great way to use up empty space and add your own personality to any room.

What do you think?

Are there any of these trends that you have already incorporated into your home design style? We are starting to see some homes - like the one I featured in my exclusive listings from earlier in the month - take these trends and make a hit. That home sold in one day for well above asking price. See that blog HERE. If you would like more ideas on optimizing your Marin County home, please get in touch, I’d love to hear from you.
