I'm not sure about you, but I've had the start of spring on my mind since the calendar changed to 2022. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing like cosying up in front of the fire, and I love the comfort of a blanket draped over every chair.
But with each new year comes an opportunity to re-think our spaces and create more comfort, style, and beauty in our homes. With that in mind, I have been scouting out the 2022 spring home decor trends to share with you.
As we look ahead to more time revelling in the outdoors, we will be making more effort to create a seamless transition between our outdoor and indoor spaces. Invest in light and airy open-plan living, employing bold colours and texture, and spending time improving our gardens.
There has never been such a collective yearning for the spring months. So is it any surprise that the top interior design tips for Spring 2022 focus on making us feel emotionally at ease?
Predict the rise of the enveloping, earthy colour of brown. Others see a spike in nature-inspired surfaces and accents, while others say their clients can’t get enough curvy furniture. Essentially, anything that feels welcoming and homey is in this season.
Tidying up your square footage for the spring season ahead should be a source of joy, not stress. While it can be tempting to do a complete overhaul, incorporating a few new changes is a great place to start.
I’ve got the spring fever - the only way to satisfy it is by bringing a few 2022 spring decor trends into the home. Buckle up and take note!

Maximise your floor plan! In 2022 we’ll continue to see versatility in the home, where spaces will be multi-functional, adapting to different activities and purposes. Open-plan living is symptomatic of a change in modern lifestyles; more time at home has meant that a critical eye has been cast on layout and flow.
Open-plan spaces allow us to move freely around the home with more fluidity, yet we can still incorporate clear zones for various activities like working, eating, exercising, and relaxing. A fluid space is perfect for entertaining as you can keep up conversations with guests while multitasking.
Socialising in your home will become much more effortless with an open floor plan - this is especially great for families, allowing them to spend more quality time together without changing their routines.

We all want our spaces to feel as good as they look, so in 2022 and beyond, the sensory experiences of our homes will become more paramount than ever. 'Self-spaces' - a space dedicated to self-care – will be the central driver in home renovation for this spring season.
People want to make their home feel like a retreat - so as they update their homes, they consider things like lighting, sound, and tactility, designing spaces to encourage restoration and relaxation. The self-care revolution is changing our bathrooms, too, with the rise of the spa-inspired bathroom.
You can easily create wholesome spaces in your home by incorporating cosy furniture, soft textiles, ambient lighting, and colour palettes to create the mood.
COLOUR AND TEXTURE

Sorry to say it, but gone are the days of the all-white kitchen. This year is all about bringing organic warmth to our spaces without compromising on colour. There’s a collective desire to add a pop of personality and fun to our homes; that’s why we will see vibrant colours and warm wood tones to give your home a lived-in look.
Texture and things made by hand represent devotion and decisive movement in design to defining art as objects you might have at home. Texture is an element that is often overlooked but has an incredible capability to enhance your interiors unimaginably.
Adding texture means creating visual interest; you can do that in many ways, but the key is diversity among the objects and finishings in your space. We’re talking about incorporating things that have patterns and movement and look like they would be interesting to touch.
Without a doubt, some of the best sources for texture in decoration are textiles. Textiles add a subtle yet powerful dimension to your room. Rugs make an excellent contribution to interior design when adding more texture. Choosing the right area rug will add tactility to the floor, transforming the space.

The days are getting longer, the temperature warmer, and all around us, new life is beginning to emerge from its winter slumber. Spring is a special time for everyone. But for the observant gardener, this time of year is magic.
There’s nothing quite like witnessing the captivating process of buds blooming and finally getting your hands in the soil to plant everything you’ve been dreaming about all winter.
Creating a designated spot to soak up the beauty that surrounds you can be as involved as you want it to be. Whether you’re an avid green thumb or a newbie gardener - raised beds are a fantastic garden solution for growing fruits, vegetables, and ornamental plants.
Lots of hard work goes into maintaining a garden, so be sure to take some time to appreciate the fruits of your labour.
