Is your home overdue an overhaul? Don’t want to be stuck with the same boring decor for yet another year?
This article contains five fresh trends that you should consider. Perfect if you need a helping hand when it comes to styling your home!
1) Bouclé Upholstery
Bouclé upholstery is coming back into style thanks to the tactile, fluffy furniture trend. The textured fabric is having a major moment: you’ll find it on everything from armchairs to sofas to footstools. Bouclé upholstery will add a warm, cosy and comfortable feel to any space in your home.
Here are a few pieces that we like (all vegan-friendly too; traditionally, bouclé was made from wool)—
Hazel Ivory Boucle Chair, £795 from grahamandgreen.co.uk
Kit Boucle Chair in Ivory, £249 from dunelm.com
Shona Accent Armchair in Whitewash, £495 from made.com
2) Bamboo Materials
Bamboo is soaring in popularity at the moment. That’s because increasing amounts of people want to source environmentally-friendly furniture solutions. Compared to hardwoods, bamboo is a sustainable material. It grows fast and is quickly renewable, making it the material of the moment. It can be used for smaller accent pieces like baskets and mirrors or larger items, like units, sideboards and chairs.
Here are three bamboo pieces we’re in love with right now:
Bamboo Clothes Rail with Shelf in Natural, £150 from johnlewis.com
Bali Natural Rattan Dressing Table & Stool, £345 from oliverbonas.com
Voxlöv Char in Light Bamboo, £75ea from ikea.com
3) Warm Neutrals Colour Palette
2022 will be the year of the warm neutral. Shades of pared-back taupe, soft beige, sandy fawn and off-cream are the key players in this look. Layer them together to create a calming and comfortable space—cocooning is the buzzword du jour. Use this colour scheme with the other trends listed on this page and you’re onto a winner.
Here are three warm neutrals that we like:
Beige 04 Interior Paint by lick.com
Peignoir by farrow-ball.com
Taupe Twist by grahambrown.com
Flowing Shapes, Curves and Contours
Flowing curves, rounded furniture and organic shapes are set to soar in 2022. Pair your carefully curated pieces with this year’s trending colour palette of warm neutrals and bouclé fabrics. The result? An inviting aesthetic that adds visual warmth and comfort to living spaces.

Gingham Soft Furnishings
Gingham is a fabric design featuring contrasting coloured checks. The traditional pattern has surged in popularity with fashionistas over the last few years (you’ll probably have noticed influencers wearing plaid dresses in a variety of colours over the summer months?) Now, gingham is making a comeback in the world of interiors too. This classic print will add a touch of country chic to any space in your home.
