Top South Florida Home Decorating Trends Emerging for 2022
Buying a new home is the perfect opportunity to showcase your personal style and create an environment that reflects you! If you’re looking for some inspiration, check out these South Florida home decorating trends which are becoming popular as we head into 2022.
Functional and Natural Interior Design Trends
As we spend more and more time at home we have begun to embrace functional, multipurpose spaces and natural design motifs. These themes are likely to continue through 2022 as we find new ways to make our homes work for our families and our changing habits.
Here are some ways to incorporate functional interior design trends into your South Florida home.
Functional Home Design
Functional home design means maximizing the way space is used in the home. It means making your home function in a way that meets your current needs.
Studies have shown spaces filled with extra “stuff,” whether furniture, decorations, or clutter, lead to higher stress levels. Minimalism is about making sure everything in your home has at least one purpose, preferably more – and maintaining the presence of free space and air for a clutter-free, low-maintenance home.
Your home’s dining room may now function as a workspace or classroom, and your living room may be doing double duty as a yoga studio. Repurposing delineated spaces to become multi-functional spaces maximizes the way you use home.
But, if you’re feeling crowded out – or the new functionality is becoming a permanent reality, explore our many floor plans for a more comfortable solution.
Many of our new home floor plans are flexible, spacious and include lofts, dens and extra bedrooms that easily morph into home workspaces, exercise rooms, artist studios and more.
We also offer several open-concept floor plans with double master suites which allow you to bring generations of families together under one roof to share childcare, eldercare and household expenses.
Not everyone who works from home needs a dedicated home office. With laptops, tablets, and smartphones, we are all mobile. But, to maximize our efficiency, we need smart home technology. A well-equipped home means not only high-speed internet and great WiFi. It means you can control lights, temperature, garage doors and more from wherever you are – and be as productive from your den as you are from your covered patio! And if you don’t need to designate a space just for work, you’ll be able to completely “unplug” at the end of the day and enjoy every room in your home to the fullest.
Natural Home Design
You can employ some of the latest interior design trends that bring a natural feel to your home.
Muted shades and neutrals like gray, white, black, and beige can make your home feel soothing. But, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t add a touch of color! Consider one of pantone’s spring 2022 color palette selections showcasing a variety of calming and playful shades from nature. Or go with well-known paint brand Benjamin Moore’s recommendation, Aegean Teal – a dusty mixture of blue and green with gray notes.
Rounded shapes and softer edges found in nature are becoming popular as we head into 2022. You can see this trend in furniture, accessories, and even architectural elements.
Inspiration from Nature
Let nature inspire you! Include natural features, colors, and textures to bring a sense of outside in. Popular natural materials include marble, granite, light wood, and onyx. Decor and accessories in ceramic, cotton, linen, and other natural textiles will help complete the look.
If your family is eco-conscious, try to use responsibly-sourced, environmentally friendly materials as much as possible when designing your home’s interior. You can be both chic and sustainable. Consider low-impact resource materials like bamboo, cane, wicker, and rattan over hardwoods, rubber, or plastic.
Literally bring nature into your home with lush, green plants. While some plants do require precise amounts of water and sunlight, others, like succulents, are much easier to care for. No matter how green or black your thumb is, you can find plants that will thrive in your home, look gorgeous – and help everyone feel calmer and more comfortable.
Note: If you have dogs or cats, before introducing plants into your home, check the ASPCA list of toxic and non-toxic plants:
