BY DESIGN OF YOUR LIFE
A sneak peak at the interior design trends that will dominate 2022.
Wallpaper is back in a big way. There are more options than ever before, including how you apply it, the materials used, and the colors, patterns, textures.

Cane webbing and rattan, have been growing in popularity for a couple years, but I think they'll have a big run in 2022. This is my DIY IKEA hack, a cane-front dresser.
Stainless steel appliances are finally fading in popularity and white and black appliances, like these from Café Appliances Canada, are going to have big gains in 2022.

White kitchens won't totally disappear, but you'll start to see more color, including in the island and the lower cabinets.

It's time to try out that green thumb again. Greenery, especially live house plants, are going to keep gaining in popularity as the pandemic continues.
